7 steps to plan a Myrtle Beach golf getaway in 2021
Something to look forward to.
That’s often all we need to get through those cold winter months, with tiny temps, big flurries, short days, and early sundowns. We can look forward to grilling again, wearing shorts and flip flops, baseball spring training – and our Myrtle Beach spring golf trips.
There are so many beautiful courses on the Grand Strand – how do you even start to choose where to stay and play, where to eat, and all the other great parts of a beach getaway?
We’ve put together some resources to help. Here are suggestions for which courses you should play, and what to do when you’re not on the links. Myrtle Beach has plenty of fun in the sun, but also shops and restaurants you’ll want to visit while you’re here.

Which Courses to play (and what to do afterward)
Arrowhead Country Club
This unique Raymond Floyd design is one of the better courses in Myrtle Beach. Course conditions are usually favorable and incredibly maintained. Attentive bag guys and the entire staff make you feel at home. The greens are immaculate.
Off the course and nearby: For the best crispy fried shrimp around, head to The Landing at The Boathouse, also open for takeout. Sam Snead’s Oak Grill & Tavern Restaurant has an unforgettable oak-grilled angus ribeye, a delicious crabcake sandwich, and more.
Tidewater Golf Club
Great conditions, great food, and a great pro shop make for one of the best golf experiences you’ll have on the Grand Strand. It’s a nice layout with awesome greens, and the scenery can’t be topped. It starts with a bang: a challenging and scenic par-3 No. 1!
Off the course nearby: Captain Archie’s is a waterfront seafood and sandwiches spot with an awesome view and can’t miss happy hour. Get the best of southern family dining with the seafood platter (or order it to go) from The Shack.
Caledonia Golf & Fish Club
What a great, scenic place to play. Many golfers rate this course among the finest they’ve ever experienced. Caledonia is a favorite not only in Myrtle Beach but also in the entire state because it’s well-maintained and unparalleled for design, conditions, and staff.
Off the course nearby: Pawleys Island Tavern serves up awesome home-cooked food (try the crab cakes) and features live music. Hit up Habaneros Mexican Cantina for a margarita.
Barefoot Landing Dye Course
Up for a challenge? This is the course for you. Don’t be fooled by the scenic nature and impeccable upkeep of the course – it will test you at every turn. The staff and starter team will take good care of you, too.
Off the course nearby: For a craft beer, appetizers (try Bully’s own spicy cheese dip), and burgers, head to Bully’s Pub & Grill at Barefoot Landing. Rockefellers Raw Bar has a fun, dive-bar vibe and mussels, scallops, shrimp and more, deliciously steamed in steam kettles.
The Long Bay Golf Club
It’s a Jack Nicklaus course you’ll want to play again and again. You’ll find excellent fairways and smooth greens, and more than a few challenging holes. This well-kept, long-playing track is 5-star in every way.
Off the course nearby: Eddie’s Italian Café is open for drive-up and takeout for all your Italian favorites. For top-notch New York-style pizza (and a Clarksburg pizza worth trying!), head to Chris’ Pizza and Pub.
Tradition Golf Club
Players love the simple yet unique design, forgiving greens, and the mega practice complex, which helps you get loose before taking on this formidable course. It’s a fair course that will require your A-game but won’t break your spirit.
Off the course nearby: For Lowcountry comfort food and house-made ales, visit Quigley’s Pint & Plate. What if your foursome wants chicken livers, po’boys, and smashburgers? Head to Rustic Table — for outstanding brunch, too.
Wizard Golf Club
It’s an excellent open course with a handful of water holes. No. 17 is a challenging island green. Play fast greens, and enjoy service from a top-notch staff, from cart personnel to pro shop. It’s a challenging track without feeling impossible.
Off the course nearby: Handleys Pub & Grub has a vast selection of new brews and pub mixers to go with jalapeno pretzels or a steak quesadilla. For a joint you can kick back in and keep the drinks and appetizers coming, check out The Grumpy Monk North Myrtle Beach.
