We talk non-stop about Myrtle Beach golf and much of the discussion centers around the best the area has to offer, but what has long made the Grand Strand so popular is the value it provides.
Playing good golf courses at bargain prices is appealing to all players and with that in mind, here is a look at Myrtle Beach’s top 5 courses that can be played for less than $60 (all prices were pulled from MyrtleBeachGolfTrips.com and based on mid-October rates, meaning the cost could actually fall in non-peak times, rates subject to change up or down by day, time and availability).
1. I’m going to hedge right off the top, listing the Palmetto and PineHills (top photo) courses at Myrtlewood as one entry. Both layouts can be played for $59, a steal given that each recently installed new greens and the Palmetto underwent a significant 2019 renovation. At the threat of someone breaking my driver, I’d play Palmetto first but you can’t go wrong either way.
2. Playing through a Cypress Swamp on the front nine and land with unusual, natural contours on the back, The Witch for $56 is a steal. The Dan Maples design is one of the area’s underrated layouts and one you will be happy to play at this rate.
3. King’s North attracts all the attention at Myrtle Beach National, but the West Course and SouthCreek (pictured right) can both be played for $49, making them another dual entry. Your group will be delighted to play either course, though the West is a little easier, maximizing your chances to score well.
4. Some of Myrtle Beach’s best courses are clustered along the South Strand and as a result, Tradition Club flies under the radar. For just $58, don’t let this Ron Garl design go undiscovered by your golf group.
5. Burning Ridge delivers a stern challenge, outstanding conditions and great value. Located just west of the beach on Highway 501, Burning Ridge is just $45, making it a deal that is hard to pass up. This is a good golf course, one you and your buddies would be happy to play.
