Pawleys Plantation is an award winning Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, which according to Golf Digest is "an 18-hole championship layout that ranks among his finest." Pawleys Plantation is recognized as one of the top layouts in all of the Grand Strand area and is considered a "must play" on any trip to the area. Nicklaus designed Pawleys Plantation "to capture the natural terrain and complement and enhance the beauty of the salt marsh and Lowcountry.”
The par 72 layout winds through hardwood and pine forests and along the saltwater marsh dividing Pawleys Island from the mainland. While landing areas and greens are generous, the course does require golfers to think their way around all 18 holes, remaining true to Nicklaus' belief that golf "is a game of precision as well as power." The front nine features tree-lined fairways and beautiful lakes, while the back nine delivers spectacular views of the salt marsh from six different holes, including the signature 13th hole. The TifEagle hybrid Bermuda grass greens offer subtle contours and run-offs typical to a Jack Nicklaus design. The golf course stretches to 7,026 yards from the "Golden Bear" tees and boasts a course rating of 75.7 and slope of 148. However with five sets of tee boxes there is a course available and suitable to challenge all levels of golfers of any age or gender.

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.

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.

A very hard course to play.
The seven remaining competitors left their familiar surroundings at Barefoot Resort & Golf for a road trip down the South Strand - to Pawleys Plantation, where Jack Nicklaus' compelling design offered plenty of drama in Episode 7. Ian Guerin has the details.
After six compelling episodes, Golf Channel’s hit reality series “Big Break Myrtle Beach” takes a road trip down the South Strand on Tuesday, Nov. 18, to Jack Nicklaus’ masterpiece, Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club. The seven remaining competitors are ready to gamble - including Christian Heavens, who attempts an unthinkable shot in his effort to stay alive for the grand prize.
Just two episodes back Carolin Pinegger looked like one of the favorites. Instead, she was eliminated from Tuesday’s “Big Break Myrtle Beach” after what amounted to two poor shots in the final challenge.
Charlie Harrison made sure his return to the Grand Strand golf scene started with a bang. The former Wake Forest player opened Golf Channel’s Big Break Myrtle Beach by earning what could be an all-important asset moving forward. Harrison won the Super Immunity Challenge, which now gives him the ability to forgo one of the show’s later tests and automatically advance to the ensuing round.
In this Golf Channel video feature, contestants Christian Heavens and Carolin Pinegger sit down with Kelly Tilghman to discuss the upcoming series Big Break Myrtle Beach – premiering Tuesday, Oct. 7 on Golf Channel, and showcasing Barefoot Resort & Golf and Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club.
