Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club

Consistently rated as a top course in South Carolina and with honors from Golf Digest and national outlets in its back pocket, Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club has combined Jack Nicklaus’ design with a perfect Lowcountry setting unlike anywhere else along the coast. 

From the tree-lined fairways on the front to the marsh-laden back nine, Nicklaus’ reach extends further than “Jack’s Tree,” an oak in the middle of the fairway near his old house on No. 14. 

“It is a fantastic golf course,” head professional Ryan Mooney said. “I’ve worked at a few facilities throughout the years. It’s constantly in impeccable shape. It’s one of those courses where people can shoot 100 and they’re still happy when they leave.”

No hole here may be as consistently challenging as the “Shortest Par 5 on the Grand Strand” - a par-three No. 13 that has been giving players fits for years. Just 145 yards from the back tees, the green lies offset of the strip of tees that line the initial portion of the inlet. The shared rolling green (with No. 16) is surrounded on three sides by marshland. In other words, Jack wasn’t gonna let you off too easy.

What a fantastic place! The course was awesome, and to top it off, it is a Jack Nicklaus Signature. Jack didn't disappoint with this layout. Challenging, fun, and extremely beautiful. The staff is super courteous and helpful. Snack bar and restaurant were wonderful. On my list to play every year.
by Cory M - 10/23/2017
Beautiful day, beautiful course! A must play when you are here
by Ed H - 09/29/2017
Great Jack Nicklaus design, course in very good shape. Enjoyed the holes on the marsh very much. May be my new favorite course in Myrtle Beach
by Aaron H - 08/23/2017
Played Pawleys Plantation during the Eclipse and had a great time. Course in great shape and thought the marsh holes were awesome, what a view. Look forward to playing here again.
by Miguel P - 06/26/2017
Course and conditions were nice. However, lots of sand on this course that had not been groomed in days. Overzealous marshals pushed us 4 due to a twosome and threesome behind us. Nice course but play in the afternoon if you want to play at a regular pace. Otherwise they intend to rush you through your round. Oh, and don't stop to use the bathroom either...Also, It may be women friendly but not kid friendly....
by Mike Dreyer, PGA - 04/17/2017
Great Layout, Staff, Course Conditions, Pace of Play! Couldn't be better. Visiting from MD.
by Bill - 03/10/2017
Love this course! Probably one of my top three courses to recommend to people coming in from out of town. Beautiful low country setting with established lush layout. Has both challenging holes for avid golfers, and playable holes for people just picking up the game. I've played here many times in the three years I've lived in the area and I can honestly say the course is never in bad condition. The groundskeepers do a great job all year round making it an enjoyable round. The staff is friendly from the bag drop/pro shop to the snack bar/restaurant. They make you feel welcome.
by Jim - 03/05/2017
The layout is fantastic, the course conditions were great. The staff treated us very well. It is a course I will definitely play again and put on y Myrtle Beach rotation. My favorite hole is 16, a very demanding b UT beautiful part with the marsh and the actual Pawleys Island in the background. I wish I had my camera with me. The pictures I n the website are better than I could take because of the use of a drone, very picturesque. The food in t g e was very good and the O rices were reasonable. All of the staff from the proshop, bag drop, rangers who helped me find my ball, and the wait staff were kind, friendly, very helpful. I give this a very high rating
by Brennen - 03/01/2017
Course is in the best shape I have seen. Greens are in excellent condition. Any past issues have been resolved. Hats off to the greens keeper. All around great club. A must play!
by Jennifer - 03/01/2017
Beautiful club. Course is great! Back 9 is one of the most scenic in Myrtle Beach. Will be back.
by John - 03/01/2017
This place is fantastic! From tee to green (especially the greens) the course is in superb condition. I would recommend this for any golfer. Can be challenging, but it is fun and fair. Staff takes care of you from bag drop, starter, course ranger, and golf shop. The pub is great for post round drinks and the food is excellent. These folks know what they are doing.
by Norm - 11/15/2016
Despite the recent previous reviews the back nine continues to suffer from the hurricane. Debris on the fairways and many areas saturated. Parts of fairway have been designated as ground under repair. Very disappointed in the conditions. Greens were slow and grass long, however they did roll well and true. Would not play this course until after the spring. Front nine was better condition.
by Tom - 11/07/2016
This is a fine course. Everything on the golf course at least 8 out or 10 condition. The pub area was very nice, and the people there are all very nice.
by David - 09/26/2016
Greens and fairways were in great shape. Back nine views are incredible as the course takes you twice through the marsh. Don't need your driver if you play from the white tees due to many dogleg fairways. Great course and will definitely play again.
by Paul - 09/02/2016
Slightly different from the other courses in the area as it goes out into the marsh for several holes which makes it a bit special. It demands accuracy rather than length and my driving was wayward so I spent a lot of time in trouble. Staff were very friendly and helpful as with all the courses we played on this trip. We did not eat there so cannot comment on the grill. Course was in good condition (Caledonia is my benchmark). My wife found the proximity of the houses to the fairways intimidating. I personally would want to play again if my game was in better shape.
by Jordan (Mt. Pleasant, SC) - 06/13/2016
Greens have recovered quite well from their spring conditions. It's worth a return trip!
by Jong - 05/02/2016
Nice course layout. Tough but fair. Back nine reminds me of Tidewater with nice views of the marsh. Conditions were pretty good except for the greens. Very slow and lots of rough patches due to some type of fungus that has killed the grass. Local couple that I played with said that greens should be healed in a month or so. Hopefully the greens will be back soon. Will play again once the greens are back. Staff was very nice especially bag guys who got me started early in front of a large group. Thanks.
by Mike - 05/01/2016
Course is not in good shape. Rough is dirt and greens are in very bad shape - bumpy with fungus. Asked before the round how the greens were and was told by the starter that 3 greens had fungus problems...It was more like over half were bad. Would not play there again until conditions improve.
by thescupper - 04/21/2016
Course is not in good shape. Thin fairways, rough is dirt and greens are in very bad shape - bumpy and looks like a fungus. Would not play there again until conditions improve.
by scupper - 04/21/2016
Course is not is good shape. Fairways are thin and rough is dirt. Greens are terrible. Save your money.
by JimV - 09/05/2015
Wonderful play with a great layout. The back 9 is a true challenge. Unfortunately, caught up to a fivesome (yes, I said fivesome) on the back nine which created quite a backup. Guess no Rangers are on duty in the afternoon. Anyway, highly recommend as a must play when in the area
by Oscar (Overland Park, KS) - 11/20/2014
I am a Senior Citizen over age 70 with an 18 handicap.. I loved this course. However, my shoulders stiffened up on the back nine and caused me all kind of trouble. If I get to play this course again, I will go to the RED tees to tee off. The course is very beautiful and I enjoyed it immensely. The fairways were in excellent shape and the golf ball rolled true on the greens even it was in November. This was my dream course to play in the Myrtle Beach area.
by Jeff (York, PA) - 11/10/2014
We had 10 golfers. So we had open spots, and they were going to put another golfer with us, (which was no problem). But I wanted to get information from them so I could organize my own group, and they didn't communicate very well. Acted like I was bothering them. In the end it all worked out.
by Robert (Fairfax Station, VA) - 10/16/2014
Greens had too much slope and runoff.
by Bob (Port Moody, BC) - 10/11/2014
by Gary (Bernville, PA) - 09/29/2014
by Bill (Sanford, NC) - 09/18/2014
Course was extremely wet but all comments in our group were favorable. Definitely a good test of golf. Premium on accuracy and distance control. We played the gold tees and are glad we did!
by Brian (Miller Place, NY) - 09/17/2014
by Chris - 08/26/2014
by Bill (Trumbull, CT) - 06/18/2014
Really good
by Scott (Springfield, IL) - 06/09/2014
Nice layout.It got a little confusing for a three or for hole stretch on yhe back nine.Two real short par threes that you really needed local wind and club selection knowledge on
by Chris (Woodbury, NJ) - 06/06/2014
Very unique course in very good condition and a good challenge. The par 3 island holes were unlike anything I've ever played or seen.
by Austin (Winty, ON) - 06/02/2014
by Dennis (Morganton, NC) - 05/23/2014
The course was in real good shape, just not a great fan of the layout. I know that this is a Nicklaus course, but am not a fan of trees in the fairway to have to hit over or around.
by Bill (Raleigh, NC) - 04/30/2014
Do not like this course very much. Too tricked up with water, sand, and marsh.
by Mel (Cary, NC) - 04/30/2014
We played the white tees which made the course too hard for some in our group (handicaps over 25). Suggest making hybrid course selection possible (mixing the tees to make course 300-400 yards shorter for seniors).
by Robbie (North Wilkesboro, NC) - 04/30/2014
Slightly over rated course
by Chris - 04/08/2014
We played the course for the first on our yearly golf trip. I did not care for the tee boxes as they were crowned and not level.The fairways were not in the best shape which may have been due to the harsh winter the south endured. However my beef was as we finished our first 9 holes and started on hole 1 what do we come upon?Why a SINGLE walker Chuck who must be a member and was carted out to fairway after he teed off.We were told we would never see him again.Wrong we saw chuck for 7 holes.I realize that walking is a great part of the game but to put a walker out on the course on an afternoon on a Friday? I am a member of a private club in PA and walking is only allowed at certain times during the week.The course was challenging and would come back to try it again.

by Bill (Beavercreek, OH) - 03/12/2014
Beautiful course. Very scenic with the marshlands. Probably not wise on starting with this course after taking the winter off. I lost 11 balls in the water and marsh. My favorite course of the week though.

Pawleys Plantation is always a great time. We played it on 1/20/14. The overall course is in very good shape for January. I have to say the staff was GREAT because they gave me the CHOICE to get paired up with another twosome or just play with my wife. I chose just us because my wife is not a strong golfer and can feel uncomfortable with being paired up. I can't emphasize how nice it was that we had the choice.
by Dan - 01/15/2014
Greens were in good shape for being dormant. Rough was playable for all skill levels. Tee boxes were in good shape. I like the contrast between the overseeded fairways and the dormant rough. Helps for aiming purposes and is visually stimulating. I've played here many times before, once they finish the construction on 11 the par 5 will open up and be more accessible for players of all skill levels. The views are a most see and I recommend this course to all golfers visiting the Myrtle Beach area.
by Walter (Columbia, SC) - 01/10/2014
The staff, course are always top notch even in January the course is in great shape.
by George - 12/02/2013
I have played golf in 42 states and Pawley's Plantation is one of the most beautiful places I have been. The layout and care taken of the course are second to none. George L
by Lin (Hawkinsville, GA) - 11/15/2013
Great facility!!
by Paul (Warner Robins, GA) - 11/15/2013
Loved the course. It is just the right distance for senior golfers and provides a great test of golf. Greens were outstanding.
by Harold - 11/15/2013
This is a beautiful challenging course. I have played it 2 times and it was in great shape both times. This course is a must play in the grandstrand area.
by Roger - 11/12/2013
This was a great course to play. We (my group) think it is one of the best of the southern courses. We played Nov. 2013
by Gary (Columbus, OH) - 11/12/2013
Great course, everything was great. Pro shop staff very helpful to find a 9 hole replay in pm at another course (Willbrook) because there was no room in pm
by Michael (Douglasville, GA) - 11/05/2013
The course was in very good condition. The layout was good, although not as interesting as Pawley's with the marsh holes. The only downside was that I was a single put with a slow group. The Marshall's tried to keep us on pace, but it was a tough battle with those 3.

Enjoyed playing it although we will probably do so earlier in the trip (it was the last course, afternoon, and you don't want to be tired playing this track!). The grill was excellent.
by Bryan (Belle Vernon, PA) - 09/13/2013
As a single, i was told i would be in about four differet groups of golfers none of which was my tee time
by Jim - 09/05/2013
I had the pleasure of playing PAWLEYS PLANTATION yesterday. The course is in EXCELLENT condition !! ... Greens are outstanding. The resources that MBN has poured into this great Nicklaus design make it a must play. The views/vistas on the back nine overlooking salt water marsh and Pawleys Island are compelling.
by Don (Chandler, AZ) - 08/23/2013
The course was in good shape. Fairways are tight and need shot placement. Greens still sandy from aeration, not consistent. We weren't happy to start on the back nine without being told that when we booked time. It was very busy with regulars that played casual golf...all about speed and not about the rules. We played with a very nice regular player. He helped us with many of the must knows. Pretty views, but not our favorite course.
by Robert (Knoxville, TN) - 06/18/2013
by Karl (Bloomfield Hills, MI) - 06/06/2013
Holes set-up beautifully. The course has a great geography, the trees and planting are awesome, and the near ocean marsh holes are fantastic. The staff treatment was top notch. I would definitely return.
by Richard - 05/28/2013
by Stephen (Boerne, TX) - 05/27/2013
Disappointed in the course condition and staff outside. We were clearly treated as outsiders. We will not choose to play here again.
by Emil (Rock Hill, SC) - 05/20/2013
Great course I would like to try again in future
by Dennis (Reading. PA) - 05/10/2013
A contstant favorite of our group, the holes on the back 9 are beautiful both to the golfer and to the eye of any human that loves nature.
by Patty - 05/10/2013
This Course is by Far one Of Top 10 on grand strand. Pawleys sits Right Up there with Tidewater and Caledonia. The Course Is women friendly and in EXCELLENT condition.... The golf Course is beautiful! Worth playing At least once a year.
by Tom (Kernersville, NC) - 05/08/2013
Nice course but did not fit my eye or game
by Mike (Whitsett, NC) - 05/08/2013
by Dave (Hamilton, CN) - 05/07/2013
Very enjoyable course great greens
by Michael (West Farmington, OH) - 04/30/2013
Good course, could have had a little more help at the start of round. Only problem was the over dressing of sand on the greens. Golfers that book packages need to know when any over seeding or top dressing occurs. What dates this has happened and when the greens will be fine. A must. Will play again.
by Tom (Hoschton, GA) - 04/29/2013
The majority of our group didn't care for the course lay-out and found it rather boring. Also, one of our players had his first hole-in-one at age 70. The Pro Shop was unwilling to do anything for him or offer him anything to remember his accomplishment. In my opinion, this is just terrible for a group of 20 guys who chose this course to play!
by Don (Hoschton, GA) - 04/29/2013
The 13th hole should be relegated to a goofy golf layout. Looks as though the course designer laid out 17 holes and then had to plug an 18th hole in somewhere.

Windy and cold that but still had a great time.
by Ralph (Moundsville, WV) - 04/26/2013
Great staff, beautiful course, some of the trees in the middle of the fairways where annoying,
by Dudley (St Michaels, MD) - 04/23/2013
by Herb - 04/16/2013
Course was very busy when our group played that day. Greens were not in the best of shape & very, very slow. Nice layout, but thought some of the large trees in the middle of fairways were a bit unfair.
by Ray - 03/25/2013
Greens were slow and furry
by Patrick (Kingston, ON) - 03/18/2013
Great starters and proshop attendants. The course was great but had a lot of houses around it. Would definitely play here again.
by L (Ada, MI) - 03/13/2013
Layout was interesting, course was in OK shape. Pace was tolerable in the morning, but very slow in the afternoon. I played three separate balls on each hole, and still was held up by the group in front of us.
by Domonic (Simpsonville, SC) - 03/12/2013
Beautiful course always a great golf experience, especially the back nine!
by Dave (Utica, MI) - 03/12/2013
by Mike (Benton, LA) - 03/07/2013
by Timothy - 02/18/2013
Played on 2/16/13. A few of the greens were roughed up from play but for February they were acceptable. The layout is nice and the scenery can't be beat. I would recommend a day at Pawley's. Just beware the 2nd hole which is the number 1 handicap, it plays a lot harder than it looks.
by Charles (North Myrtle, SC) - 02/14/2013
by Sandra (Pawleys Island, SC) - 02/14/2013
Level ladies tee boxes
by Shawn (Mount Pleasant, SC) - 01/31/2013
Nice course. Would play again.
by Steve - 01/30/2013
Great experience
by Scott (Clark, NJ) - 01/07/2013
Great layout, we had a lot of fun. (Even though we accidentally snapped our buddy's driver in half).
by Lloys (Lake Lure, NC) - 01/02/2013
You have a great course. From its reputation, I thought it would be harder than it was. My biggest problem was being distracted by the beauty of the course. Be proud!
by Matthew (Arlington, VA) - 12/25/2012
Excellent experience.
by Joshua (Mount Joy, PA) - 12/04/2012
I would say this a great overall course. The unique set up of the course, the friend and accommodating staff made this course a pleasure to play, would definitely play there again. For the 6 rounds I've now played in Myrtle Beach, this is definitely tied for 1 of the favorites.
by Damon (Mount Pleasant, SC) - 11/26/2012
Course was in great shape. Greens were quick.
by P. (Virginia Beach, VA) - 11/22/2012
Relatively tight fairways, trees and tee box placement make this course an inviting challenge! Well-maintained.
by A. (Levittown, PA) - 11/21/2012
Very good.
by Dan (Maineville, OH) - 10/30/2012
Unique holes out in the marsh. Nice people in the grill.
by Stan (Indianapoils, IN) - 10/29/2012
Causeway par 3's were spectacular.
