Myrtlewood Golf Club - Palmetto Course

  • Overall: - 8.73

The Palmetto Course is one of two championship golf courses at Myrtlewood Golf Club.  The Palmetto Course was designed by architect Edmund Ault and was opened for play in 1972. Just like its sister course PineHills, the Palmetto course is found at a great location sandwiched between the Intracoastal Waterway and downtown Myrtle Beach.  The Palmetto Course has been continuously ranked as one of the top repeat-play golf courses along the Grand Strand featuring gently sloping fairways and large, undulating greens separated by an array of water hazards and strategically placed bunkers. The quality of this course combined with the location and value make it was one the most popular courses in the area.

There are three holes that will jump out at you on the Palmetto Course: #14, #17 and the beautiful finishing 18th hole.   The 14th at Palmetto is a relatively short par 4 running about 391 yards from the back tees, but make sure you hit an accurate tee shot because water lurks to your right and out of bounds to your left, the 14th simply has a great view from the tee box looking at the back drop of houses behind the elevated green.  The 17th hole is a short par 3 ranging only 179 yards from the back tees.  It is all downhill and over water to a bunker guarded green, with a great view of the Intracoastal Waterway on your left.  The finishing 18th hole that runs parallel to the Intracoastal Waterway is simply stunning. This hole offers a beautiful view but can be a monster depending on wind direction. From the back tees the 18th on Palmetto will run every bit of 470 yards and from the white tees it is 368 yards, almost a 100-yard difference from one tee box and it’s only a par 4!  With the waterway and a few bunkers to the left and two fairways bunkers to the right, the fairway is actually pretty wide and forgiving. The popular 17th and 18th give Palmetto one of the best finishes to any round of golf in the Myrtle Beach area.

  • Ted - Tee boxes, fairways & greens are in excellent shape. Greens would be better if golfers would fix their ball marks. Repaired recent ball marks on most greens. Staff was very nice. 17 & 18 are great finishing holes along the waterway. Not an overly difficult layout but a enough water & sand to keep you honest. Pace of play for this time of the year was acceptable. A must play. - 04/09/2016 - 9

  • Bob F. - Unfortunately only got 9 holes in due to rain. Course was fair and playable. Greens could use a little work as they had several rough spots. One of the few courses that did not have any hole map or yardage signs at their tees. The pro shop also did not have any yardage books. That makes for play to become difficult and slow for players unfamiliar with the course. Will give it another try next year to see if conditions have improved. - 03/27/2016 - 8

  • Mike (Oneida,NY) - Staff very friendly upon arrival. Was a cold windy day, but course was in great shape. Greens putted very true, but were a little slower than some other courses, not bad though. Interesting layout, challenging but fair. Clubhouse gal was very friendly and attentive. Definitely be back again. - 02/15/2016 - 9

  • Peter - A great course to play. This is one of my favourite courses to play when I come to Myrtle Beach. Staff on the course, and in the club house and restaurant are very friendly. A great challenge for all golfers. - 10/11/2015 - 10

  • Peter - Have played this course two years in a row now. The pace of play was good taking just over 4.5 hours to play. This was probably just because of the cart path only rule due to the major flooding which had occurred the weekend prior to us playing. The course was in great shape and will be back again to play next vacation. - 10/09/2015 - 9
