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. 1-866-694-2448 $$

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.

Susan (West Chester , Pennsylvania)


Always a “must-play”

Thomas (Woodbridge, Virginia)


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.

John (Roanoke, Virginia)


Loved the course

Bob (Crestview , Florida)


Very Wet.

Charlie (Solon , Ohio)


Great course, great condition, fabulous staff!

David (Vandling, Pennsylvania)


Great course, friendly staff

Andrew (Altoona, Pennsylvania)


I love this course. It is the best course for the price on the grand strand.

George (St. Simons Island, Georgia)


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!!

Mike (Beckley, WV)


great place to golf!!!!!!

Randy (Calhoun, Georgia)


Enjoyed our round. Tough but fair course. Great Pro Shop experience.

Susan (West Chester, Pennsylvania)


Nice course. Hard to say about the conditions as everything is very wet and cart path only. Nice scenery. Staff was very nice.

Terry (Brantford, North Carolina)


Extremely wet. Cart paths only made it a VERY tiring day. Nice layout though. Somehow need to let people know conditions.

Bobby (Talbott, TN)


One of the most fun courses I’ve played in the area. Convenient location! Great staff. Good practice areas also

Andrew (Holbrook, NY)


Really good course, great service, really enjoyed both courses and the people.

Eddie (Marion, VA)


Couses in good shape for Jan gréens were slow

Mike (Oneida,NY)


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.



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!



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.



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.

Mike (Oneida,NY)


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.

Gerard (Commack, NY)


Very good.

Mike (Mississacqau, ON)


Really like this course.

Corey (Norfolk, VA)


Slow play because they don't turn you away if you don't have a tee time. Very nice course. Just didn't like waiting on every shot.

Sabrina (Fonthill, ON)


Great Course!



I am a 77 year young senior citizen with an 18 handicap. I enjoyed playing this course and plan on playing its sister course when I visit Myrtle Beach Next Year. The course was in very good shape for my November tee time.

Danny (Bonita Springs, FL)


Really enjoyed the digital caddie. Great staff in the pro-shop just as well as the cart attendants.

Robert (Leechburg, PA)



M/M (Wasaga, ON)


Very good.

Dan (Lenoir, NC)



Robert (Richmond, QC)


Those two courses were very clean .I'll recommend to my friends.

Jerry (Monticello, GA)


Course was in very good shape and greens were nice to putt on.

Nick (Mechanicsburg, PA)



Kevin (Kitchener, ON)



William (Bethany Beach, DE)



Karen (Arcade, NY)


Everyone was very helpful ... only problem we encountered was we were told snack bars on certain holes but they were not open.

Pat (Simpsonville, SC)


(Would like to have known prior to play about the) green condition.

Robert (Horseheads, NY)


(Would like to have known prior to play) that they were going to pair us with another couple.

Joseph (Murrells Inlet, SC)


All was good on the course.

Joyce (E. Stroudsburg, PA)



Brandon (Kernersville, NC)


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.



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 is twice the price.

Timothy (Aberdeen, NC)


I have played both the Palmetto and the Pines courses before but, I have never seen the Palmetto course in such great condition.

Robert (Tullahoma, TN)


Easy course, open enough for average golfer.

Richard (Downers Grove, IL)


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.

Ed (Marydel, DE)


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.

Timothy (Worcester, MA)


All was good value

Johnny (Cumberland, KY)



Aaron (Russellville, AL)


Had a great time.

Peter (Dorchester, MA)


Course conditions were very good. Good pace of play.

Kevin (Heath, OH)
