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.

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.
