Long Bay Golf Club

  • Overall: - 9.00

Upon arrival at Long Bay Golf Club, the majestic statue of “The Golden Bear,” Jack Nicklaus, is first to greet you – and serve notice that you’re in for an unparalleled, one-of-a-kind golfing experience.

Designed and opened in 1989, Long Bay boasts a series of undulating and elevated greens that have set this design apart in the Grand Strand golf scene. Its iconic par-4 10th hole is no exception, and also features a stunning arrangement of waste bunkering and moguls that’s prevalent on several holes throughout the course.

Long Bay’s series of par 3 holes showcases a stunning island green at No. 13. Its finishing hole is a sweeping par 4 that plays left to right around a lake and toward a well-guarded green – all with a stately clubhouse as part of a magnificent backdrop.

Long Bay joins Aberdeen Country Club, Colonial Charters Golf Club and River Hills Golf & Country Club as among the award-winning Founders Collection options that are conveniently located along the Myrtle Beach area’s northern “gateway.” Be sure to include it on your next golfing itinerary!

  • Joshua - I really like this course. I play it every trip down to Myrtle Beach. a few of the greens (five of them) have been re-sodded, but they are playable. The rest of the greens are fine and putted very well. Played our round in 3hrs and 30 minutes. - 07/13/2016 - 10

  • Keith - The greens on the front nine are in repair. Some have only 5-10 feet of putting surface the rest of the green is fill in turf. Probably good to pass this one up for now. - 07/05/2016 - 9
