Pine Lakes Country Club, AKA the Granddaddy, received a facelift in the spring of 2021 and the changes have elevated the experience at Myrtle Beach’s oldest golf course.
Architect Craig Schreiner led a greens and bunker restoration project that saw Pine Lakes receive new Sunday bermudagrass greens and an overhaul of every bunker on the course.
The greens were restored to their original size, adding more than 21,000 feet of putting surface, and the Sunday bermuda is nearly flawless, providing a fast, smooth surface.
While the new greens attract much of the attention, Schreiner’s bunker work was no less dramatic. Every greenside bunker on the course was renovated, an effort that included the installation of a new state-of-the-art drainage system.
New bunker faces feature traditional, native grasses that roll into the sand, giving the course a more natural look that provides an equally fair test for players of varying skill levels.
If you want to play Myrtle Beach golf course rich with history and good times, you need to tee it up at Pine Lakes Country Club.
