Carolina National Golf Club – Egret / Heron
Carolina National Golf Club is a 27-hole Fred Couples signature golf course, set along the Banks of the Lockwood Folly River. Winding through rich low country terrain, the course offers an endless variety of playing experiences, and has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of the finest courses on the eastern seaboard.
With three nine’s – each with it’s own distinct personality – the course was designed to accommodate all skill levels through its innovative design and multiple tee placements.
Farmstead Golf Links
Farmstead Golf Links is truly a cut above the typical Grand Strand course. Considering the extraordinary golf experience it offers to players of all levels, this is arguably the best deal in town. Nestled in a natural setting while comfortably removed from developed areas, the course affords golfers the luxury of playing in almost perfect privacy. Set on a level stretch of land that was once a tobacco farm, its windswept 480 acres have been fashioned into a spectacular set of challenges by designer Willard Byrd.
Wide, links-style fairways gently follow the lay of the land to create a collection of shot-making opportunities that reward superior play from golfers of many styles. Whether the flags are noisily flapping or eerily still, hitting it straight is the key to scoring well at Farmstead. It may be wide-open with generous landing areas, but scoot one off a fairway and you are stuck in the love grass, where your next move is to drop a provisional.
Pearl Golf Links – East Course
Since opening in 1987, The Pearl Golf Links has been one of the fixtures on the Myrtle Beach golf scene, especially on the north end, located as the facility is in the quaint seaside town of Calabash, North Carolina. It contains 36 holes designed by Dan Maples—the East and West Courses—that wind throughout coastal forest and out onto expansive, scenic marshland. Both locals and visiting golfers benefit from the enjoyable, well-conditioned courses.
