Tradition Golf Club

  • Overall: - 8.78

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
  • Clint (Gilbertsville, PA) - Course was in ok shape. The course itself had a nice layout. Greens were nice and rolled nice, but very slow. My wife and I had a 5-1/2 hour round. Very disappointing how long it took as we had to wait on every shot. We didn't see a ranger on the course and if he was there, he didn't do his job. Decent course but hard to give a good rating after such slow play. - 10/21/2016 - 7

  • Heiko (Buxtehude, OT) - Holes are very good to play for all players - 10/19/2016 - 8

  • Mark (Pawleys Island, SC) - Considering I played 4 days after Hurricane Matthew, the course was quite good. Lots of fallen trees and debris, but cleanup is underway. Only drawbacks were the amount of fallen leaves and branches made it hard to find your ball at times, especially in the waste bunkers. The sand traps were like concrete from all the rain. I just needed to stay out of them! Was still a great round. I'm sure in a few days the course will be in even better shape. - 10/15/2016 - 9

  • Anthony (Altoona, PA) - Due to rain cart path only-understandable but difficult to 18 holes under those conditions-not fun. - 10/04/2016 - 8

  • Ken - Tradition is a good course and offers both challenge and scoring opportunities for any golfer. The staff is friendly, helpful and available all of the time. All of the courses in the area were wetter than anything related to average from the storm named Julia. After 4 days playing in the area under cart path only and wet feet, we were thrilled when Tradition was allowing carts everywhere except 3 holes. It is because the course drains really good because several other courses close by were not letting carts on fairways. - 10/02/2016 - 10
