Junior Tees Make Golf A Fun Family Vacation Option

Now through Labor Day, junior tees are available at these courses: Myrtle Beach National's West Course, the PineHills Course at Myrtlewood Golf Club, Litchfield Golf & Country Club, Willbrook Plantation, and River Club. Junior tees makes the game fairer and more manageable for children and because kids play free with a paying adult at all of these courses,  a round with the entire family is more affordable.

 

You'll find the West Course at Myrtle Beach National conveniently located off Highway 501 in the heart of Myrtle Beach. The course is carved through tall Carolina pines and its traditional layout and design offer wide fairways and large Mini Verde Bermuda grass greens that make for an enjoyable golf experience whether you're highly skilled or just starting out.


Myrtlewood Golf Club is right in the center of Myrtle Beach and this PineHills Course stretches along the banks of the Intracoastal Waterway. Its creative use of mounding and strategic placement of water hazards and tight, tree-lined fairways will present you with a test that requires finesse over brute force.

 

If you're staying on the South end, check out Litchfield Country Club, which measures less than 6,700 yards from the back tees. On numerous holes you'll find tree-lined doglegs and water hazards that'll force you to make the most of tee and second shots. After that, forgiving approach zones open up the possibility of bump-and-run golf and eliminate many of the issues associated with small greens.

 

One of the many things that Pawleys Island is known for is its golf courses. Consistently rated as one of the Myrtle Beach area's top golf courses, Willbrook Plantation is a Dan Maples design set in Pawleys Island. Part of the Waccamaw Golf Trail, it’s popular with players of all skill levels. Winding through a pair of plantations, the course’s pristine 18 holes weave through natural grasses, Lowcountry marshes and wetlands. You'll find that any number of holes on the course could be considered signature worthy, based on the variety from one hole to the next.

When you visit the River Club you'll see why it's a popular choice among golfers. It's a Tom Jackson Signature Course that includes ponds and streams on 14 of the 18 holes of this par-72, 6,700-yard track. Built on the site of a former rice planation, it earned 4.5 Stars from Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” and features expansive fairways, well-guarded greens and sand traps numbering in the triple digits.
