People love to live on golf courses and golfers prefer to play layouts that are devoid of housing, setting up a dilemma. Nearly every Myrtle Beach golf course that has housing is able to successfully thread the needle with any homes located on the perimeter, out of reach of all but the worst of shots.
Even with that acknowledged, a substantial number of Myrtle Beach golf courses are entirely without housing and here are our five favorites.
— King’s North is one of Myrtle Beach’s iconic layouts and it’s easier to eagle “The Gambler” (pictured above) than it is to find a house on this Arnold Palmer-designed classic. King’s North has no homes, increasing your enjoyment of what is already one the area’s most popular courses.
— People would pay a premium to live at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club (pictured below) but it will never happen. Mike Strantz designed one of America’s top 100 public courses on less than 120 acres of land and there is nary a homesite to be found. Golfers get to relish the Caledonia experience in solitude.
— Wild Wing (pictured below) was once home to four courses, two of which were purchased with the goal of developing real estate, but the Avocet Course remains open and free of housing. Highlighted by the 265-yard 14th hole, a legitimately drivable par 4, Avocet continues to delight with a peaceful round of golf.
— If you are playing at Barefoot Resort and want to enjoy a layout absent of residents, the Fazio Course awaits your arrival. The layout doesn’t turn at the clubhouse, bringing players out and back in without a home to be found. It only adds to the charm of a round at one of the area’s best layouts.
— The Heathland and Moorland courses at Legends both feature gargantuan fairways, large greens and a lack of homes. It certainly adds to the appeal at the Scottish-inspired facility that continues to be among the area’s most popular.
While that’s a list of one man’s favorite courses without homes, there is room for considerable debate. Here are additional Myrtle Beach area golf courses with little to no housing:
