Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club

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.

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

This was the 2nd course we played on our 2 week trip and was certainly one of the toughest tests. Great set up, some great holes let down only by a few poor greens. The best staff encountered all trip bar Kiawah Island and a thoroughly enjoyable if tough round of golf. Afternoon was spent at the equally excellent Mel Sole Golf School.

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.
