Prestwick Country Club

Prestwick Country Club

Prestwick Country Club is one of the most unique courses in Myrtle Beach, presenting natural hazards like whispering creeks and small lakes. Surrounding the entire course are dense pine forests and man-made knolls that give the added challenge to reach these deep bulkhead greens in regulation. Prestwick has been a prestigious course that does not go without being recognized – including “5 Best Kept Secret Courses in America” by Golf Digest (2004) and 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” guide (2006), and the SC Golf Rating Panel’s designation as among the “30 Best Courses You Play” (2004). 1-866-694-2448 $$$$

No. 14 at Prestwick has been ranked in the top 18 on the Beach. This 409-yard par 4 proves to be extremely difficult with a water hazard in play and a very undulating landing area on the tee shot. The approach shot must be from the fairway to have a chance at the green with uphill slope that will require an extra club. The other featured hole is the par-5  No. 9, playing at 486-yards; golfers must favor the right side of the fairway while avoiding an errant shot into deep bunkers that surround the right side of the green.

Nice course. Challenging but plenty of tees to choose from for any level player. Will play here again. Staff was friendly and helpful. Got rained out after nine and got rain check for other nine. Honored it the next day without question.

Bob (Raleigh, NC)

Jason (Weymouth, MA)


Best conditioned course we played this week

Marco (Embrun, ON)


Course is in superb shape, pace was excellent, enjoy and Will play it again in the fall

Jay (Hanover, NH)


Greens are fun but difficult. Danger lurks just off many greens. Almost like island greens without the water and in some cases with water. Nice cousre

Len (Chicago, IL)


The greens are fantastic.

Brian (Bridgewater, MA)


One of my favorite courses right in MB between the 2 rte 17's. close to airport (10min) for arrival day round or getaway day round. $85 for round. unfortunately this day we played in some early morning rain, on top of the fact that 5 days prior they had significant rain so course was saturated and cart path only. really like the layout and great greens. rain had big impact on some of fairways to the point of some spots lacking grass. unusual for this place so chalk it up to recent weather as this is pretty flat course. played here about 3 times in past and conditions always fantastic so chalking it up to aberration of the weather.

Robert (Myrtle Beach, SC)


I have played this course many times and I never tire of playing it. Greens are the best and very quick. Conditions are superb. Make sure you play the tees that match you game or you will be frustrated. Staff makes you feel very welcome. If you haven't played this course give it a shot. You won't be dissapointed.



There isn't a nicer course in Myrtle Beach. There are only a couple of easy holes on the course. You have to bring your A game and pay attention every shot. It's in great condition, as usual.



Great layout! Every hole brings a new challenge. Fairways and greens are perfect. Slick surfaces make for great putting on undulating greens with a true roll. Staff is friendly and top notch! Will be back for sure!



Very nice course. In excellent condition. The greens were exceptionally fast in the wind. They had two sets of tees for the ladies which is nice and unusual. Thought the course was challenging, after all it is a Dye course, yet fair for ladies.



This course is a must play when in the Myrtle Beach area. This course is in phenomenal shape for February. The staff is extremly friendly and courteous and answered any questions my group had. Greens are extremely fast and makes your incoming shot very important. This course will be on our list when back in the area,



The course was in excellent condition and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The course is laid out very well with no parallel fairways. The first nine is tree lined while the back nine is more links style. The greens were fast, but putted true. It is a good test of your golf game. I would recommend that you move up a tee box from where your normally play because the course tends to play long.



Golf course was in great shape and me and my sister really enjoyed playing there



Beautiful layout, with phenomenal greens! Challenging, but fair. Very enjoyable outing.



Very fun and challenging course-the starter talked me into moving up a set of tees which was a great idea as I really enjoyed my round. the course was in great shape-fast greens



A very enjoyable course, atmosphere, and staff! I'm looking forward to playing Prestwick in the near future. It was fun playing a course that was very well maintained, with outstanding greens, and an overall happy environment.



Challenging course that makes you hit all the shots! Greens are the best I've played at the beach. Staff was very helpful and friendly with exceptional service. It was a busy day and we played in less than 4 hours!I will definitely be back!!



Course in great shape. Greens are really fast...good to know. More challenging because of that. Keep that in mind when the flag is on the back of the won't stay....

Steve (Swansea, MA)


A very demanding course. Great shape. The greens the best I've encountered down here. The course can humble you. Right when you think your playing some pretty good golf it says stop you're not THAT good.

Jim (Long Grove, IL)


Awesome course.



Golf course itself was in good but not great condition. Greens were nice and fast even though spraypainted. Tee boxes were in ok shape and fairways were in good shape. Still one of the better layouts we played and at the end of the day the greens, tee boxes and fairways were consistent. Staff great as well as very friendly.

Michael (Houston, TX)


Course was in great shape. Greens are very challenging and good shots are certainly rewarded. Would recommend this for golfers of all levels.



A gem. A mix of straightforward and challenging. Greens were excellent. #2, #9, #17 and #18 were a blast to play. The rest of the course didn't let up either. I would definitely come back and play again. Pete Dye's railroad ties are in full force. Memorable.

William (Jefferson, OH)


We showed up a half an hour early and they made us wait for our tee time even though there wasn't anyone in front of us. Other than that, the course was in great condition.

Carolyn (Toledo, OH)


Contour tough to putt, would have been better except for sand and rough grass on greens. Pretty course when the grass comes in.



We played this course in early January and the greens were painted and fast but nothing like yesterday. I'm not sure if they rolled them or what they did but they are almost unplayable because they are so firm and fast. Three times my putts rolled off the green because of the speed on downhill putts. After the rains, cart path only, you couldn't run a chip on because the area around the greens were wet and soft and if you chip on, the ball rolls forever. Really difficult to play. The course itself is a favorite of mine with a great layout and test of golf. The staff is excellent and friendly for a semi-private facility. I will return but not this year.

Harold (Ona, WV)


Great course. Staff excellent.

Don (Haslett, MI)



Thomas (East Bridgewater, MA)


Perfect course!! We'll be back.

Mike (Clarksville, TN)

Joe (Littleton, CO)


Excellent course.

Kevin (Burnsville, NC)


Everyting was great.

Jason (Whitby, ON)



Norman (Cranston, RI)


Challenging Pete Dye layout.
