One of only a handful of 27-hole layouts, Arrowhead Country Club sets itself apart from the rest with an award-winning design from the renowned Tom Jackson and World Golf Hall of Fame member Raymond Floyd. A popular repeat-play venue of vacationing golfers and locals alike, Arrowhead offers a masterful blend of Bermudagrass fairways and MiniVerde Bermuda greens, with several holes majestically set along the Intracoastal Waterway.
This complex offers three distinctly unique 9-hole designs (Waterway, Lakes and Cypress and Lakes) that showcase surprising elevation changes and some of the most meticulously groomed holes you’ll find anywhere. Arrowhead’s most notable holes are nestled along the Intracoastal Waterway. The par-4, 387-yard 5th on Waterway embodies its course’s name, as water runs the length of the hole’s left side. The par-4, 355-yard 4th hole on Cypress features a creek fed by the Intracoastal that dissects the hole both in front of the tee box, and in front of a green protected by multiple bunkers.
The National Golf Course Owners Association honored Arrowhead Country Club in 1998 as the “South Carolina Golf Course of the Year,” and the course has been repeatedly honored by readers of the Myrtle Beach Sun News as one of their “Best of the Beach.”

Lakes 9 greens were meh. A little bumpy as they must have been aerated somewhat recently. Some burned out and thin in spots. Cypress 9 was in better shape. More lush and the greens were smooth.

Outstanding!! Staff was friendly and course was great. Had one 9 closed due to aeration but the other 18 were in immaculate shape. I usually try to play something different each time I'm here but this one just might become a regular for me and my daughter!!

Arrowhead is my favorite course in Myrtle Beach. They always take care of us. We have a tournament every year and they are the most friendly course, the rangers always are friendly and helpful. Most of the others are a pain !!!

Terrific all around golf facility. Has everything; fine practice area, very nice clubhouse and staff, and three terrific different nine holes which are in nice condition with interesting design and lots of variety. Can't go wrong with this place. Mid range pricing is appropriate.

Great condition. Average play speed. Challenging and very scenic.
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.
By Wednesday morning, scores of visiting golfers were strolling the grounds at Grande Dunes Resort Club just as they would on your typical, ideal day for a round of fall golf on the Grand Strand. With temperatures in the low 70s paired with brilliant, clear-blue skies and a light breeze, this course – along with the vast majority of golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area – was back to business as usual.
For as many courses as the Myrtle Beach area has to offer, there are actually only a select few that can claim direct contact with the Intracoastal Waterway. Some dip and dive around the jutting marshland connected to it. Others used the elevated land next to the Waterway as the perfect setting for a picturesque hole. Either way, these six courses have something special to offer.
The moveable feast that is Myrtle Beach golf appeals to all sorts of players for all sorts of reasons throughout the calendar year. Some like it hot, some like it upscale, some seek out less expensive months, some like it for at least 36 holes a day, some prefer to set aside ample pool and beach time.
Recently, SiriusXM Radio’s Brian Katrek and John Maginnes, hosts of “Katrek & Maginnes On Tap” airing weekdays from 5-7 p.m., took time out to speak with Nick Giordano, tournament director for the Myrtle Beach Never Forgets Memorial Golf Outing being held May 18-21, 2014.
