Myrtlewood Golf Club – Palmetto Course
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.

Rained the night before so it was very wet. Tee box grass was too high. Otherwise it was very nice.
MikeDate Played: 11/06/2019
This course was nice and challenging. I liked it the only problem was the pace of play. It was a 5 hour round the group in front of us was terribly slow and there were no rangers on the course speeding them up. We even asked the cart girl to have a ranger speed them up. She radioed in but that never happened. The cashier in the clubhouse passed a comment about it being a slow round later. So the staff new but did nothing about it which is a bit ridiculous.

BryanDate Played: 10/31/2019
Flat and uninteresting. Extremely slow. At points there was 3 groups on the par 3’s. Course was in fine shape but if I didn’t play it again I wouldn’t miss it.

loved the course and enjoyed views on back nine.
BillDate Played: 04/03/2019
It was a wonderful experience. I only wish that I had the time to spend more time there. Anyone who complains about the course, needs their head examined. Beautiful course and well taken care of. Waiting for our next vacation to spend with you. The weather was cool, cloudy, but had a great time. Hoping to see you next year. Also, made a couple of great guys, whom I played with. Hope to see them again next year.

JonasDate Played: 03/10/2019
Tee time was at 2:35 Friday . Felt like the bag guys were just annoyed at us being there . Did get to finish 18 because Marshal would not speed up players. Took 4 1/2 hours to play 14 holes .
SusanDate Played: 03/01/2019
ThomasDate Played: 02/28/2019
We were very pleased for the course and staff. Good value for price paid. However pace of play on the back nine was very slow and the twosome behind us pushed our foursome.

Great course, friendly staff
GeorgeDate Played: 11/21/2018
Course was very soggy from watering the rye. So, besides it being cart path only, there were places where play was impossible, once te ball buried two inches in the ground was fiund. Very, very, very slow play. There should be a map of the course. Too many blind shots , especially for one who had not played the course before. Hole numbers were not even on the tees!!
AndrewDate Played: 11/21/2018
I love this course. It is the best course for the price on the grand strand.
MikeDate Played: 11/18/2018

TerryDate Played: 11/08/2018
Extremely wet. Cart paths only made it a VERY tiring day. Nice layout though. Somehow need to let people know conditions.
SusanDate Played: 11/08/2018
Nice course. Hard to say about the conditions as everything is very wet and cart path only. Nice scenery. Staff was very nice.
NancyDate Played: 06/05/2018
Was at least a 15-20 min.wait at each hole. We were in Myrtle Beach on vacation, thought we would check the course out. I am a beginner golfer and a twosome came up behind us, my husband told them to go ahead of us. The Marshall comes along and wanted to know why we left them go ahead, there was no reason for that. I thought that was good golf ediquite, my mistake. If you are members there favoritism is shown! Will never go back, 4 hrs to play 9 holes, because of the wait at each hole.
AndrewDate Played: 05/13/2018
Really good course, great service, really enjoyed both courses and the people.
MikeDate Played: 02/28/2017
This is a nice course in very nice condition. The fairways are great. Greens rolled well. The course has many challenging holes, but is fair for golfers of all levels.The staff is very friendly. Definitely a must play.
JohnDate Played: 01/25/2017
A great layout and a fun course to play for all level of golfers. Fair but lurking trouble with water and some strategic placed bunkers. The course was wet due to the last 2 days of rain and was cart path only. Fairways are thin but the greens are immaculate for this time of year (good job). My only issue with this outing was that we were told not asked about a single joining our twosome than on the first tee another golfer showed up right when I was hitting my tee shot...lack of courtesy from the course and golfer!
JeffDate Played: 05/23/2016
This place is great, top notch course. Great lawn ball play, greens were fast and consistent. Staff very nice and professional. Look forward to coming back.
TedDate Played: 04/09/2016
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.
MikeDate Played: 02/15/2016
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.

BrandonDate Played: 10/14/2014
I liked the layout. #18 is a beautiful hole along the waterway. I was a little disappointed in the greens, slow and quite bumpy compared to other courses I played the same week.
NickDate Played: 10/09/2014
Great course, and in nice shape. Greens slow in mornings, but speed up as the day goes on. I'd recommend this to visitors, but don't make tee time via clubhouse...it is twice the price.
TimothyDate Played: 10/06/2014
I have played both the Palmetto and the Pines courses before but, I have never seen the Palmetto course in such great condition.
RobertDate Played: 10/04/2014
Easy course, open enough for average golfer.
RichardDate Played: 10/03/2014
I had a 2:45 tee time, although late should have allowed enough time to finish the course before dark. Play was slow and the ranger made no attempt to speed up play during the afternoon. He did come by late in the day to tell us that our cart had to be back in by 7:00. Driving by the 17th tee to return to the clubhouse by 7:00, there were 5 golf carts with players waiting to tee off, plus three sets of carts out playing the 18th hole. The slow play and lack of customer service will keep me from returning to this course - there are plenty of other courses in Myrtle Beach with faster play.
EdDate Played: 09/24/2014
Though the course was busy, as a single, starter got me in earlier than my tee time. Ranger kept play moving and our foursome finished in 4:15.

JamesDate Played: 06/10/2014
Greens were aerated on 5/28 so not completely healed but not bad. Tees and fairways were in good shape and the rough areas, which I visit often, were acceptable. Course was very fair but I still found the sand 7 times or so.
RobertDate Played: 06/09/2014
This is the tenth time I have golfed at this course, although more expensive than most it is always in excellent condition and fun to play

The Myrtlewood Palmetto course is in consistently good condition, regardless of the season I play it in. Generous fairways give you a chance to score well, if you bring a decent short game.
TomDate Played: 01/22/2014

Can play the other course Pine Hills back to back at relative low green fee.
PhilDate Played: 11/15/2013
Very nice layout. Eye appealing holes. Always in good condition and well cared for. Fun golf course. Bring a sharp putting game as it does have a number of undulating greens that require careful lags. The food is very good in the snack bar and the Pro Shop staff is friendly and helpful. Everyone is verey efficient and helpful. Very nice facility overall. I always enjoy this place.

Played Palmetto course 9/13. Great course layout, pro shop and staff, but the fairways were being verticut while we were playing. Would like to play course again, but not when we have to follow tractors and play in the dust.
TomDate Played: 09/05/2013

ScottDate Played: 06/24/2013
This course was extremely enjoyable to play. There was a variety of challenges but not too difficult for the high handicappers that were in our group. The course was in great condition even though it had been aerified in the past two weeks. A great experience. One of the best I have had at myrtle Beach.
DanielDate Played: 06/18/2013
I was very pleased that the lady called to let us know the greens were aerated on Myrtlewood and could switch us to Pines Hills. We had just played a course the day before with aerated greens.

It was fine for $42.00 will play again. however, the attendants at the bag drop off area are rude...very rude.
DanaDate Played: 05/20/2013
Our round today took over FIVE hours. The four foursomes from Georgia that were ahead of us each had at least one hole open between them. We never saw the course Marshall until we called the proshop to complain. The Marshall was unwilling to address the groups to speed up play. Both the proshop and Marshall each blamed the corporate office for overbooking tee times.

Course overseed was very good with smooth greens. Speed of greens was good.

The pro shop called to inform us that the Palmetto course was going to be aeriated on Monday before we were to play on Tuesday and offered to switch our play to Pine Hills. We accepted and were very pleased that they took the time to call in advance.
GregDate Played: 08/15/2012
Play was a bit slow but course was in excellent shape and everyone at the club house was polite and happy to serve. Will play again when I return to the beach.

They cut the rough as we were playing right after a rain so the rough was clumpy with grass, but otherwise a nice course to play on.

For the money Palmetto was a great course. Greens were quick, even for Bermuda, nice layout, will play this course again.
JamesDate Played: 07/27/2012
Everything was great.
JonDate Played: 07/25/2012
My husband and son played golf there. They were very happy with their play there. The only complaint was ... we stayed at the Breakers Resort, and dialed 1000 from room to book. That process was great. Our complaint is that he was not told at booking that they needed to wear collared shirts. He had some at hotel, but had just chosen to wear a regular t-shirt. They were then faced with option of not playing, or having to buy a shirt for both of them. It was a $70.00 expense we were not planning on. Other than this, they enjoyed their time there. But we just feel this should have been mentioned at booking. Thank you.
AlexDate Played: 07/24/2012
I enjoyed the whole package. Everyone was nice and the course was fantastic.
RichardDate Played: 07/23/2012
I play Myrtlewood each time I come to Myrtle Beach. Both courses are always in good condition and the atmosphere on the course and in the club house is great. The food is always good inside and everyone is very hospitable.
MDate Played: 07/23/2012
What a great course for only $25 pp. Excellent condition, interesting layout. The gusty winds made it seem like Scotland if it were 40 degrees cooler and rainy. I highly recommend course, especially for the money!
JamesDate Played: 07/20/2012
Nice track ... rough on fairways and around greens is tough to get used too. Rough grabs your wedge and no roll if it does not hit green first. Use a nine, eight or fairway wood around greens to get through the rough stuff!! Really enjoyed the course after I figured that out.
MarcoDate Played: 07/19/2012
Excellent, played it in 3 1/2 hours.

Only thing I was concerned about is they only gave rain checks in case of rain. We played our round Tues. morning but there was terrible storm in the afternoon. I am not sure if we could have used rain checks. Would prefer refund as I am only in Myrtle Beach once per year.

Great place to golf. Staff was excellent. The entire course was in excellent shape.
DaveDate Played: 07/14/2012
Great course. We had a great time and enjoyed the course. None of us are very good golfers so we appreciated the openness of the course layout. After not playing for three years, Myrtlewood proved to be a good choice for me to play.
ThomasDate Played: 07/11/2012
Play this course also every season, very pleased.
BrianDate Played: 07/11/2012
Overall good experience.
DouglasDate Played: 07/10/2012
(Liked the) condition of course and layout.
JamesDate Played: 07/10/2012
Very accessible course. Challenging for players of my level and enjoyable to play.
ArthurDate Played: 07/09/2012
Fairways good. Greens great. Would play again.

The greens seem to have recently been aerated and were a little hard and slow, not very consistent. If the greens were in better shape (even as good as the practice greens) this would be one of the nicest courses I've ever played. The grill is top notch!
MatthewDate Played: 06/24/2012
We were the first group out. We teed off at 7:32. We made the turn at 9:38. One of the monitors admonished us and told us we had to speed up play. At no time was the group behind us waiting on us. 2 hours and 6 minutes is exceptional for 4 golfers (we were paired with two other golfers). We finished the round in exactly 4 hours. Also, we were on hole 15 before we saw the beverage cart.
FloydDate Played: 06/23/2012
I really enjoy the course. The greens were bumpy but the rest of the course was great. We eat the special on Monday 6/18 was the BBQ was great. I also like that we were able to play the course in 4 hrs.
CharlesDate Played: 06/21/2012
(Would like to have known prior to play about the) aeration status.
KeithDate Played: 06/13/2012
Nice course - will play again.
KevinDate Played: 06/13/2012
Great layout and playing conditions.
DavidDate Played: 06/11/2012
The course was in great condition even though it was extremely wet. The Palmetto course does not turn at the clubhouse, although there is a snack bar that you pass on the front and the back nine.
JamesDate Played: 05/30/2012
Very rewarding experience. Nice first impression, beautiful putting greens, good practice area, competitive pro shop prices, inviting and good food.
JaredDate Played: 05/29/2012
The Palmetto course is located on the Intracoastal Waterway and has some great scenic holes. Overall the course is in good condition. However, two things make it a less than stellar round of golf. First, the drainage can create terrible problem areas. Lots of places on the fairways and areas located in front of greens are so wet that you would think you're in a hazard. To be fair, it has rained a good amount in Myrtle Beach over the previous week, so that may have contributed to the conditions. Second, and more annoying is that fact that the 9th hole is nowhere near the clubhouse. So you have no chance to stop and get a refreshment or snack when making the turn. Overall not a bad course, would recommend to other players for playability and price.
MichaelDate Played: 05/29/2012
Love the 18th hole here. One of the best on the Strand ... brutal when playing into a 40 mph wind.
JohnDate Played: 05/15/2012
Would like to have known club rental was not included in my registration fee. There was confusion by staff.
RobertDate Played: 05/11/2012
Very nice layout and a good test of golf. Not too penalizing and allows for opportunities to recover if you are a bit erratic from the tee.
RobertDate Played: 05/03/2012
Excellent course, well maintained, great staff.
ToddDate Played: 04/13/2012
Nice course! Generous fairways and very nice greens ... Tough course on a windy day! Service was just OK. I'd play there again.
KarenDate Played: 04/05/2012
Everything was nice.
CarlDate Played: 03/03/2012
Loved the finishing hole.
ChrisDate Played: 02/15/2012
Great time sans the cold brutal wind gusts.
SteveDate Played: 01/04/2012
Great course for our skill level.
MarkDate Played: 11/19/2011
Was cart path only. Wet fairways due to overseeding and watering. Green approaches too wet. Nice 18th hold along Intracoastal Waterway.
RobertDate Played: 11/14/2011
Nice facility, friendly staff. Thought the course was a nice muni course.
JerryDate Played: 11/13/2011
We were told we would be able to ride, unless too much rain. Not the case. Cart paths only. We were told you had lots of rain Thursday and Friday. Starter & outside men said it was so wet because you soaked the course overnight. We are all in our 70's and had problems.
AlanDate Played: 10/22/2011
Fast play, tricky greens.
TedDate Played: 10/10/2011
Lots of water and sand but also generous fairway areas to avoid it. Palmetto is the most scenic of the two Myrtlewood courses. Enjoyable.
DavidDate Played: 10/06/2011
This is the third time in a row we have endured 5+ hours of play time! We will not be back! No rangers to keep play moving! Overcrowded course with what appears to be an interest in making a dollar rather than keeping the play moving! We had been warned by other golfers of extreme slow play!
RichardDate Played: 08/26/2011
I played the Palmetto during my vacation and I was treated like a Tour Pro; the employees were great. I will play this course again. I tip my hat to the Myrtlewood Golf Club. The 17th and 18th hole blew my mind.
RexDate Played: 08/20/2011
Everyone was very nice, they put fathers and sons together. Course in good shape. Just a very good golf experience.
KatieDate Played: 06/27/2011
The staff at this course was great. The course was in good shape as well. Liked the surroundings.
RobertDate Played: 06/15/2011
Played Palmetto better than Pinehills.
DaveDate Played: 06/04/2011
Pace of play was SUPER. We didn't have to wait and there was no one pushing us. (Would like to have had) more information about the layout of the course (i.e., location of water hazards).
PhillipDate Played: 05/10/2011
Fairways were in great shape, green were in good condition.
TedDate Played: 04/22/2011
The greens are too grainy.
GreggDate Played: 04/19/2011
This was our first time playing at Myrtle Beach. We depended on the booking agent [name, Dorothy] for selecting a good course. We were both pleased and enjoyed the company of the other couple in our foursome.
BenDate Played: 04/03/2011
Very nice course. My foursome had a variety of handicaps (6 to 20-something) and it was challenging yet fair for everyone. Fairways were furrowed in some strange way and lots of tight greenside lies - some by design, others seemingly due to early season conditions; not sure which. In any case, a good experience and one I'd do again.
JoeDate Played: 03/21/2011
KevinDate Played: 03/21/2011
Very nice. Will recommend.
RobertDate Played: 03/17/2011
Staff very nice and the fairways were in excellent condition, especially for this time of year.
RodneyDate Played: 03/15/2011
Overall, we had a great experience. My group has been coming down for approximately 15 years, but this was my first trip with them. I will definitely be back and we will not wait till spring. I hope to come down a couple of times this summer and fall. Thanks for a great visit.

I had played the other course earlier this year but think I enjoyed Palmetto more (except for the sand traps that my ball kept finding).
ClydeDate Played: 09/16/2010
The course was in good shape and was near my condo.
CharlesDate Played: 07/25/2010
Enjoyed playing the course. The staff was helpful and nice to everyone. Tees were set up for everyone to score.
JohnDate Played: 07/15/2010
Nice track. Would play it again. Paid $55, but not sure I'd pay more than that. Staff was overall friendly and accommodating. I chose this course for location more than anything else. I would rank it a 3 on a scale of 1-5.
EmileDate Played: 05/08/2010
I played both sides several times and enjoyed every time except rain days.
GlennDate Played: 05/05/2010
Slowest course we have played. I don't know why we played it again but we did and it was ... AGAIN! 5-1/2 hrs ... Will not be back.
MikeDate Played: 04/19/2010
Very player friendly. Good course to start your trip.
EdwardDate Played: 03/30/2010
Short drive from hotel and liked the course; will play again.
DonaldDate Played: 03/13/2010
Would like to have known the condition of the greens prior to playing.
TerryDate Played: 02/27/2010
Nice staff, friendly people.
TimothyDate Played: 02/23/2010
A nice layout but I'm not sure it rates a slope of 130. Played a bit long and SLOW because it was cart path only and NO RANGER to be found. Starter was a little gruff as well.
TomDate Played: 10/30/2009
CarmelinaDate Played: 10/26/2009
We did not like that the yard markers were on the side of the fairways and not in the middle of the fairways. The greens were very fast.
RonaldDate Played: 10/14/2009
Course was wet from Monday rain, cart path only until the 11th hole. All in all had a great time.
AlfredoDate Played: 10/14/2009
We liked the course. The amenities were very nice. Excellent service.
