Prestwick Country Club in Surfside Beach near Myrtle Beach, has recently earned an overall rating of 8.1 from the reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for course conditions, customer service, and overall experience.
This Pete and P.B. Dye designed golf course features many elements of a classic Scottish style course, with berms and undulating mounds that make up the entire course layout. The most intriguing aspect of Prestwick’s 18-hole layout is that the front and back nine feel like two totally different courses. The front nine takes you through forest covered with trees, water and swales in the middle of greens. As you proceed to the back nine, it gives way to a more open, links feel, with narrow fairways but does not punish golfers for going too long.
Golf Digest recognizes this course as “5 Best Kept Secret Courses in America.” The signature hole No. 14, a 451-yard, par 4, requires a shot over water to a narrow fairway guarded by a huge trench on its left side and a series of swales on the right.

One thing I didn't like about Prestwick was having the side bucket of sand and scoop on the side of the cart. Either was time consuming to go back to cart when one of the player's ball required walking or was messy to keep bringing full scoop to ball to play ready golf.

Of the four courses I played this trip, this was my favorite. Beautifully laid out with challenging holes and fun greens.
