Prestwick Country Club

  • Overall: - 8.18

Prestwick Country Club is one of the most unique courses in Myrtle Beach, presenting natural hazards like whispering creeks and small lakes. Surrounding the entire course are dense pine forests and man-made knolls that give the added challenge to reach these deep bulkhead greens in regulation. Prestwick has been a prestigious course that does not go without being recognized – including “5 Best Kept Secret Courses in America” by Golf Digest (2004) and 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” guide (2006), and the SC Golf Rating Panel’s designation as among the “30 Best Courses You Play” (2004).

No. 14 at Prestwick has been ranked in the top 18 on the Beach. This 409-yard par 4 proves to be extremely difficult with a water hazard in play and a very undulating landing area on the tee shot. The approach shot must be from the fairway to have a chance at the green with uphill slope that will require an extra club. The other featured hole is the par-5  No. 9, playing at 486-yards; golfers must favor the right side of the fairway while avoiding an errant shot into deep bunkers that surround the right side of the green.

  • Tobin - Good layout, but very demanding. Greens were thin but true. Probably too difficult for the average player, even from the forward tees. Staff was very good and helpful. - 06/13/2016 - 7

  • Jim (Long Grove, IL) - Awesome course. - 06/11/2016 - 10

  • Craig - Maintenance budget must have been cut. Very disappointed. Greens were in horrible shape and very slow. Had played before and was always very pleased. - 04/27/2016 - 6

  • Pat H - Golf course itself was in good but not great condition. Greens were nice and fast even though spraypainted. Tee boxes were in ok shape and fairways were in good shape. Still one of the better layouts we played and at the end of the day the greens, tee boxes and fairways were consistent. Staff great as well as very friendly. - 02/29/2016 - 7

  • Mike (Oneida,NY) - Enjoy the golf course. Not a fan of the painted greens, don't seem to roll true. Also, almost every cup is crowned. We had 3 foursomes and everybody experienced putts rolling off to right or left if they reached the cup slowly. They should use a board with a hole in it to cut the cups to prevent crowning. Overall nice course though. - 01/29/2016 - 8
