Tradition Golf Club

  • Overall: - 8.42

Tradition Club, a Ron Garl designed golf course in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, has been an award winner since its opening in 1995.  Golf Digest called it “Best New Public Course” in 1996.  Two years later, the Tradition Club, whose five sets of tees make it a very woman-friendly course, was awarded “Top Fairways” by Golf for Women.  Many tournaments are held on this challenging layout including the World Amateur Handicap Championship.  For more than 15 years Tradition Club has been home of the South Carolina Golf Association's “Tournament of Champions.”  This beautiful tree-lined course nestled in a community built on a 16th century plantation is a traditionally inspired championship course.

Whether you have a low handicap or a high one you will enjoy the many challenges of Tradition Club.  Every par three is uniquely challenging and rewarding to par! But, before tallying your score, you will be tested by the signature hole … Number 7, a 375-yard par four with an island green that will capture your attention and demand your concentration … a hole to remember at Tradition Club! The long par 4s can make or break your round of golf while the par 5s will test your management skills.  The 405-yard 18th hole is one of those par fours that combines strategy with skill as it leads you back to the Tradition Clubhouse for refreshments on the patio.

Myrtle Beach Golf Insider
  • Mark (Pinehurst,NC) - Great course and have played here multiple times before but got off late this last round and only got 16 holes in. Disappointing because they didn't have any carts ready for the 1 o'clock on tee times. Other than that one of the better courses in that area and with a nice online price from MBN.com. - 01/15/2017 - 8

  • Michael (Pawleys Island, SC) - Very good overall. - 11/29/2016 - 7

  • Ian (Fonthill, ON) - Loved playing this course, each hole was like being on the course by yourself, the starters were well organized and our group of 16 got off without a hitch. Lots of pride taken by staff in making this course an excellent venue. - 11/26/2016 - 9

  • Jerry - We have played at Tradition Club for quite a few years now, and it has consistently been one of our favorites. The staff is always friendly and helpful, especially Bobby, who has become a very welcomed friend over the years. This most recent round of golf was played only about three weeks following Hurricane Matthew, and yet, the course was in great shape. I was told they had lost more than 100 trees on the course, but they had done a terrific job in cleaning things up, and quite frankly, the loss of the trees did not seem to adversely affect the course at all. I also want to commend the Pro Shop staff and the quality of their merchandise. Tradition Club always has an outstanding selection of golf wear, as good as any in the MB area. - 11/23/2016 - 9

  • David (Essex Junction, VT) - Good layout playable by many different levels. Course was in reasonable shape for time of years, greens a bit slow. - 11/12/2016 - 8
