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.

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.
Closed for the previous three weeks because of the torrential rain and flooding that hit Myrtle Beach in early October, Aberdeen Country Club reopened to the public on Friday, October 30. Eighteen of the course’s 27 holes will be open, including the Highlands Nine and Meadows Nine. The Woodlands Nine is currently still being prepared by workers, and is expected to open in the coming days.
No matter how great the first 17 holes of a round might be, the memory of a course is often tied to the finisher. A jaw-dropping No. 18 can put you in an emotional state that leaves you craving more. Up and down South Carolina’s Grand Strand, five of the area’s courses are home to some fantastic finishers.
The northern end of the Grand Strand is the perfect place to tee off on a one-of-a-kind Myrtle Beach golf vacation, with five award-winning Prime Times Signature golf courses in this area to greet you as part of The Gateway Collection.
Aberdeen Country Club recently earned an overall rating of 8.2 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering particular recent praise for the quality of its greens and overall course conditions.
