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.”

Golf course was great as always and the Benny at the bag drop was the best. I recommend to everyone.

I always enjoy Arrowhead but this year the course was a bit muddy and soft. You can run the fairways on most holes but be careful of the low spots which can make a mess. We got the first tee time of the day to get out as a twosome but they put a single with us again. I understand they want to group people but I still feel they force people on you whether you want another person or not. Pawley's Plantation gave us the option of adding someone or not. The fairways are quite wet but playable. The greens are in good shape and very puttable.

Everything was great except the breakfast sandwiches. Need to toast the english muffins, and not burn the eggs.

Very tight with lots of water. Tough but fair course.

GREAT Course! Immaculate condition other than VERY wet in a few places including two tee boxes virtually under water (which they couldn't do anything about). Some of the yardages got a little monotonous but we loved the lay-out and the condition other than wetness was exceptional.

Well manicured, nice setting, classic Carolina golf.

Played Cypress and Lakes. Cypress is more target golf with a small margin for error. Lakes is more forgiving and can be attacked for scoring. Both 9's in excellent shape with greens rolling smooth and quick.

Great track and staff. Will definitely play again and recommend
Sometimes, the name brand speaks for itself. While South Carolina’s Grand Strand is a vibrant collection of communities with individual identities and their own golf attractions, the centerpiece of it all has been and will always be Myrtle Beach.
Right here on South Carolina’s Grand Strand, several courses have made their mark with elevation changes of a variety of breeds. These are five of our favorites where paying a little extra attention to those changes - with your shots and driving the cart - will go a long way.
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.
