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.

Great course. Long. Artistically and esthetically beautiful. Unfortunately, we played on a day following 2 days of rain, but still a great course.

A great course layout and nice greens. Unfortunately because of all the rain in the area over previous days we were relegated to cart path only and all of the waste bunkers were virtually unplayable, but that still did not detract from the overall appeal of the course since the fairways and greens played just fine. The starter at #10 was very pleasant and you could tell he was genuinely enthusiastic about the golf course...not just a guy standing there going over his routine. Unfortunately 1 of the 2 bag attendants was just the opposite. He was only interested in helping the members that were coming in and acted very disinterested in assisting our group as a whole. The woman working the grill was very nice and got stuff out to our group very quickly as we came in.
