Something New? 5 Myrtle Beach Golf Courses That Will Offer a Fresh Look This Fall

Myrtle Beach’s fall golf season offers a chance for players to enjoy the area’s idyllic 75-degree afternoons and a final buddies trip before winter sets in. While that’s always an attractive combination, several area courses will be fresh off renovations, providing more incentive to visit the Golf Capital of the World.

If you want to play a layout that has something new to offer, here are five that need to be on your itinerary.

River Hills Golf Club, one of the area’s hidden gems, installed new greens in the summer of 2022 and completed a comprehensive bunker renovation project this year. The Tom Jackson design has never been better. The expanded greens are superb and the bunkers, which have a smaller footprint, enhance the layout’s playability.

Pawleys Plantation will reopen by October 1 and it will be the most sought-after tee time at the beach. The Jack Nicklaus design will have new greens, the bunkers will be renovated and in some cases dramatically reduced in size, and the clubhouse bar will offer an expansive view of the marsh. Pawleys is one of the area’s most dramatic layouts and after a summer facelift, it will be even better.

-The PineHills Course at Myrtlewood Golf Club will undergo a comprehensive bunker renovation project this fall, installing new Capillary Concrete Bunker Liners and premium sand while providing a more natural look to popular layout’s traps. The project will begin in October and be finished by the end of December without interrupting play. This is the next step in the evolution of PineHills, following an acclaimed 2018 greens restoration project

– The renovation of the Grande Dunes Resort Course in 2022 is still fresh, so if you haven’t teed it up on the Roger Rulewich layout in recent years, it needs to be at the top of your list. Those Intracoastal Waterway views are as stunning as ever and the greens complexes are among Myrtle Beach’s best.

– Golf course dining has taken a significant step forward in recent years, but Myrtlewood’s Palmetto Course has taken it to a different level with the opening of the Dog House in 2023. Located at the intersection of holes 5, 13 and 16, this themed quarter house serves hotdogs that reflect the regional preferences of Myrtle Beach golfers. From the Chicago Dog to the Coney, there is something for everyone. Here is a vote for Back 9 Dog, featuring homemade pimento cheese, chopped bacon and drizzled with sriracha.

If you are looking for something new this fall, these five courses will deliver.
