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.”

Most unique selection of holes in MB. 27 holes and I would say that only two or three are your run of the mill holes that you would find on the average golf course. Five of the six par 5's are as fun, challenging and different than most par 5s you'll ever play. The par 3's are as picturesque as there is in MB as well as most courses elsewhere. Caledonia is my favorite course in MB but I would put Arrowhead right there with Grande Dunes, Tidewater and Prestwick. Always in great condition, staff awesome and always free range balls. If you have never played Arrowhead it is a must on your next trip. I have played 71 courses in MB and this will always be in my top 3/4. If you like golf as well as the course layout, routing and easy on the eye you will LOVE Arrowhead, I guarantee it!

Always a great stop. Greens were in good shape, fairways a little thin but all the courses are struggling a bit with all the rain for the last 3 months. I would recommend a round here as it is one of the better layouts at Myrtle.

A frost delay is a pain but the staff did their best to get things going and we had a good day. The fairways were a little thin in spots because of all the rain the area has suffered but they were playable. Arrowhead is always a good time. The greens were in great shape.

Beautiful Intracoastal Waterway holes. Greens were in great shape for this time of year.

Premium on accuracy off the tee with course playing even a little shorter than tees would indicate otherwise. One of the few Myrtle area courses where I would suggest backing up a set of tees versus driving through the fairway on doglegs routinely.
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.
