Recently named “Best of the Beach” among North-end golf courses by The Myrtle Beach Sun News and a past recipient of a four-star ranking from Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play”, Aberdeen Country Club is finding its third decade just as notable as its first two.
Split between the Highlands, Meadows and Woodlands nines, Aberdeen takes advantage of the slightly differing landscapes on each. And since most players are mixing and matching nines, it gives Aberdeen Country Club the ability to morph rounds from one day to the next.
“I think it’s a benefit that we have that,” head professional Steve Shaffer said. “We have the flexibility to move them around.”
What that also means is extra diversity for those packaging all three at the same time. Each nine comes with its own signature hole, too. Meadows and Woodlands each feature a par-3 No. 8, complete with water, trees and sand in your line of sight. The opener on Highlands is a par 5 that plays just shy of 500 yards from the whites. A slender fairway someone slims even more after the opening shots. If nothing else, it makes the rest of that side seem a bit more open.

Just got down to Myrtle on Sunday and have played Diamondback, Aberdeen, and Long Bay. Aberdeen had the best greens (8/10) just above Long Bay and Diamondback had terrible greens (2/10). Aberdeen was the overall best round so far as the course is in nice shape and I had a solid 4hr round. Long Bay was a great course but we had a 6hr round from 1:30 to after 7.

This is a nice layout but the greens were horrible. Some not even half covered in grass. The course is very tight with plenty of OB. Need accuracy of the tee but who knows what you'll get once you are on the green. This was not even worth the $32 price with the MB Passport.

Greens were in terrible shape. I was shocked. Normally TifEagle greens are excellent. The fairways on Highland need to be cut it was like playing all shots from rough. Everything else was fine. Good pace of play and employees are great.

Putting on dirt on number of holes.

Easily the worst greens I have ever played on. Half of the greens were mud. Most of the greens covered in rotting grass. Can't believe they are changing $70+ to play there. I'm not even a picky golfer, but I will never play there again. Wouldn't even play there if it was free. I'd rather pay to play somewhere else. Starter was incompetent too. We were a twosome, he made us wait for an hour to tee off because he said another twosome was showing up soon. We could have teed off ahead of 7 foursomes and played the course in record time but instead he ended up telling us that the group wasn't showing up and sent us out after all 7 foursomes.

Loved the layout of course however the greens were like putting on glass. We did not mind that but the pin locations were not in friendly locations for amateur golfers. Worse scores all week.

Looked like a good course to play except that all of the fairways were very wet of flooded.

There’s a reason fall golf in Myrtle Beach is so popular. Weather, availability, diversity of playability and off-course entertainment all factor in here. But with all those ringing true, some courses have distinguished themselves among the flock as being more than capable of handling the heaviest times of the year while minimizing hitches.
There are so-called golf meccas in the United States that bill themselves as having a course for everyone. And even though reputations are earned and tastes differ, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that Myrtle Beach has lost more courses in the last 15 years than some of those other areas are still boasting.
While not every track is built for children, more than a fair share of those located on South Carolina’s Grand Strand hold all the necessary components for a day with your budding youngster golfer. Influenced by architecture, environment and personality, some are just better than others.
When the golf course at Aberdeen reopens March 29, you'll be able to enjoy a renovated 4,000 square foot clubhouse that has been redesigned as a sports-bar style restaurant with four large television screens. The new restaurant will offer a full-service menu, along with daily drink specials.
Back-to-back rounds aren’t for everyone. For those electing a jam-packed day of golf, South Carolina’s course-loaded Grand Strand has options galore for a morning-afternoon combination. Sure, several locations host multiple golf courses. But we’ve got something else in mind.
