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.”
When some of the biggest names in professional golf began venturing into course design, owners had high hopes of where those side projects would lead. Roughly one in nine courses along South Carolina’s Grand Strand were designed by someone who won multiple PGA Tour majors and who has already been elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame.
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.
