Ever wanted to get into the minds of golf’s greatest players? Now is your chance to take on Myrtle Beach designs by golf’s King and Golden Bear. We’re offering affordable rates on five top-notch courses by two of golf’s most beloved players. There’s Arnold Palmer’s King’s North, SouthCreek and West Course at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, and Jack Nicklaus’ Long Bay Club and Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club.
Golfers can book two rounds on any of the five courses and pay greens fees starting at just $80 per golfer for both rounds. That’s a savings of nearly 50 percent below customary fall rates.
“We’re offering these iconic courses at a special rate at a popular time for golf so that more players have a chance to experience these great courses,” said Steve Mays, director of marketing and sales for Myrtle Beach Golf Trips. “These are highly-awarded and recognized courses, each with their own exceptional challenges and terrain. This is a great opportunity to play top courses designed by golf royalty at greens fees far below the norm for this quality of course.”
Arnold Palmer’s King’s North offers several of the Grand Strand’s most memorable holes, including the par 5 hole, “The Gambler.” Golfers can choose to hit the driver long over an expansive water hazard onto an island fairway for a good chance of getting to the green in two, or take the safe layup and a short approach over water for the regulation three shots. The course also delivers a dramatic ending with the par-4 18th, which features an array of 40 bunkers. Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” has awarded King’s North 4.5 stars.
SouthCreek features waste bunkers, dogleg fairways and undulating greens that challenge golfers to focus on accuracy, not distance. You can find some good scoring opportunities throughout the round at several memorable holes.
The West Course is carved through secluded Carolina pines. It has a traditional layout with wide fairways and large greens, making it enjoyable for players of all abilities. It finishes with a lengthy par 3 that features water running down the entire left-hand side.
At Jack Nicklaus’ Long Bay Club, players have to navigate a variety of bunker styles, elevations and some shallow greens. Crystal-blue streams that cut through several holes add to the beauty and difficulty. Long Bay Golf Club received 4.5 stars from Golf Digest’s “Places to Play.”
Bordered by a 600-acre nature preserve, Pawleys Plantation is a course where Nicklaus carved out formidable par 4s, beautiful par 3s and memorable par 5s along the marsh and creek that divide Pawleys Island from the mainland. Laid out among 200-year old moss-draped oaks, it is a Lowcountry favorite that has received numerous accolades from Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and other national media. This year, the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel ranked Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club among the top 50 golf courses in South Carolina.
