Designed by Gene Hamm, Burning Ridge opened in 1980 and received an extensive renovation in 2005 – catapulting it to earning “Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year” accolades by the Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association based on the quality of the golf course, management and contributions to the Myrtle Beach community and the game of golf at large.

Measuring 6,780 yards from the longest of its four sets of tees, Burning Ridge is a par-72 course, with the standard 10 par fours, four par fives and four par threes. Those four par threes offer particular challenge—they all measure more than185 yards, with the 247-yard 12th leading the pack.

Burning Ridge is known for the widely varying size and shape of its greens - from long and skinny greens that reward straight ball flight as well as shallow, wide ones that place a premium on distance control. The green on the 529-yard, par-five 18th tests the former criteria: the right side is fairly deep, but the left runs only about eight yards from front to back, guarded by a bunker in front. Be sure to hit your highest, softest-landing wedge shot to keep it on the putting surface. Burning Ridge also boasts a full-service pro shop as well as an impressive practice facility with a grass driving range, putting green and chipping green with a practice bunker.

Ted

Fair but Challenging course. Tee boxes & Fairways are in very good shape. Some of the best Greens in Myrtle Beach right now. Course was extremely busy but pace of play was 4 hours as a foursome. Nice Staff.

James

Early in season , fairways and greens had a good set and condition . course is very fair for the golfer that plays in the fairway and even a little in the rough areas. Price well worth the experience .

John

Fair & Balance (local) The course is in excellent shape and we played 18 in a little over 4 hours as a twosome with a ladies group in front of us. This is certainly a shotmaker course, so even if the Gene Ham designs reflects over 6200 yard from the whites you can ease up on the driver. Place it and you will be rewarded! The greens are superb...kudos to the groundkeeper. JD

Loved the layout

Bruce

This was our first time at Burning Ridge. The Staff was very professional and courteous, and the Course was in great shape. The Greens were fairly fast with subtle breaks, and playing from the gold/red Tees made the holes enjoyable. I would definitely play the Course again.

Douglas

Had a great time . Play time was a little slow , but not bad. Greens were a little faster than other courses in area. Nice layout, risk/reward was at a playable level. Clubhouse was very nice. Only complaint was some sand hazards around greens needed more sand or deep raking.

Mike

The golf course is in great shape. The greens are the best I've seen there in years. Fairways in good shape. The only negative were the traps were a little rough. The staff from pro shop to starter were great. Will definitely be back this winter.

Timothy

Nothing really exciting about this course. The fairways are a little thin and some bald spots on a few greens. Not one of the better courses in MB.

Barry

02/08/2017

Course was in great shape. Club house staff was friendly and helpful. Are tee time was 1:11 pm but we did not get off until 1:40 pm. We had to rush to get our round in before dark.

Drew

Grill attendant was the only team member who does not seem to enjoy her job. Second time it's been noticed, unfortunately.

Ted

01/12/2017

Nice Old Style Course. Everything right out in front of you. Enough Sand & Water to keep you honest. Course is in good shape. Greens putted true. Very nice staff. Would recommend this course.

Jim

10/31/2016

It was the best course I played all week.

Tom

10/22/2016

Excellent course. Water and bunkers are in play. Fairway grass a little thin. Greens nice. Definitely play again

Henry

The whole experience was well worth the price paid. Affordable, yet a good dollar value.

Thomas

10/05/2016

Greens were in excellent condition and grounds and employees were excellent.

Harley

10/04/2016

That we were cart path only but I could see why. The course was very wet.

James

08/26/2016

OK

George

08/10/2016

Great course.

Ron

07/17/2016

Tees were excellent. A couple of greens were a little rough but all greens rolled true. A few fairways had bare spots. A nice course. I will play again.

Anthony

06/28/2016

Great course. Fair test of our golf game.

Ted

06/19/2016

Played in a tournament. Staff did a magnificent job with the tourney. Course is a little rough. Lot's of thin areas in the fairways & some tee boxes. several greens were suspect but overall not horrible.

Dave

05/23/2016

Love the layout.

Raymond

05/18/2016

Tee time not respected and bad communication with starter

Sallie

04/13/2016

Bob the starter was excellent. Came out on course to check on us several times because we were behind a slow group.

James

04/12/2016

Course was in great shape from tees to greens, hard but fair course. Lots of doglegs, water, sand, greens were extremely fast. Used 3 medal off of most par 4 tees. Pace of play was as good as any on a Sunday. Will definitely be back.

Jytte

04/11/2016

The greens were excellent which made the experience good, though the layout makes many holes look alike. We were treated very well with great hospitality.

Trevor

03/30/2016

I played in 2013 and it was poor then. It was better this time but it isn't a course I'll return to with so many superior, equally priced options available. The staff is just doing their job, the layout isn't particularly unique. I only came back because I was rained out after 10 holes in 2013, and I should have just let the sleeping dog lie.

Don

03/23/2016

Friendly staff.

Timothy

03/23/2016

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely play here again.

Raymond

03/17/2016

it was in good shape for the time of year. Too bad there was a league or something that took a long time to finish we were backed up a 1/2 hour from our original tee time.

Greg

03/07/2016

course was average. bag drop staff was great! they offered quite a bit of local knowledge and were very professional.

David

03/02/2016

For this time of the year, the greens were reasonably fast and they rolled true. Fairways were high and wet but that is understandable with the recent weather. Nice variety of holes, solid golf course.

Al

01/28/2016

Nice course. Only negative was there was no sand in the sand traps. Just a thick mud. Never saw that before.

Donald

12/29/2015

Nice course. Very doable for a 15 handicapper.

Lawrence

10/29/2015

Course very wet.

Paula

10/24/2015

The course was exciting. It was very tight so my husband left his driver in the bag to save the home owners grief! Sadly the recent hurricane caused the course to be very wet, however, you could tell they are trying very hard to recover. I commend the ground keepers and pray they will son get the course back to superior quality.

Steve

10/23/2015

No marshall ever came around. Ahead of us, the two groups of three joined together as a group of six and grossly slowed play. Everything was sopping wet. The man in the pro shop acted as if he couldn't be bothered when told about the six golfers that joined together.

Michael

10/17/2015

You are to be commended for getting the course in such great condition following the rain. I'll recommend your course to other people from my area in Western Pennsylvania. And of course, my buddies and I will be back next year.

Stephen

10/17/2015

Very nice looking course. Lots of rain lately so slow play. Had to walk a lot. Would play again. Pace of play pretty good.

Mark

10/07/2015

Velvety greens rolled out true. Nice layout with distinctive holes. Friendly to less skilled golfers, but still challenging.

Jeffery

10/01/2015

Everything was good.

Curtis

09/26/2015

Course was in good shape. No problems, would play again.

Brad

09/16/2015

Very friendly staff. Course was gorgeous. We liked this course so much that we decided to play it two more times over our vacation, rather than go elsewhere. Course was challenging enough for me, but not ridiculously difficult.

Craig

09/16/2015

The course was very well maintained and the greens were excellent. They were a consistent speed for all 18 holes. The mixture of difficulty on the holes was fantastic. I will definitely play this course again.
