The Parkland Course at Legends Golf and Resort has been named one of “America’s Top Golf Courses” by Zagat (2003 and 2009) and has earned at least four starts in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” five different times (1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2009).
Measuring as far as 7,108 yards from the back tees, Parkland is a perfect storm of distance and hazards. Of the 18 holes here, 12 are affected by some type of water, and every hole includes at least two sand traps that come into play. Many of those can be compared to the deep pot bunkers PGA players typically contend with. There are also plenty of waste bunkers, tree-lined fairways and multi-level greens to contend with. All of those elements are evident from the get-go, as the 380-yard, par-4 No. 1 has 10 separate bunkers, about half of which affect the approach the green. The reward for manipulating the opener is the second-toughest hole on the course, a par-4 460-yarder that also serves as the longest par 4 at Parkland. Still, it is advised to avoid the driver, as a split bunker on the left side comes into the line of sight for the target area. Other holes of note are the sand-loaded No. 7 – a mid-range par 4 with 10 individual bunkers – and the double doglegged No. 14, the hardest hole on the course that that gives players the feel of two different holes.
Regardless of season, Parkland is assured of being in top condition, a reason for repeat plays from locals and tourists. The course is located just off U.S. 501, a major thoroughfare in and out of the heart of Myrtle Beach.

The starter at the first tee really got upset at the tees we chose to play (white) he suggested that we move up a tee box. When we denied to, he seemed to become agitated with our entire group (12). This was our 17th annual trip to Myrtle Beach to play golf, and most of our group had played here at least twice before, but he didn't want to listen to us. Thank goodness that the starter from the prior day was the ranger later on in this round and he was more than pleasant, and apologized for his counterparts demeanor. Will still put this course on our playlist again!

A good course but as others have said, pick the correct tees for your game. The whites play long with some difficult carries. Getting breakfast before you play and lunch afterwards is a great end to the round. We will return. We played it on 1/27/14 and it was in good shape although some of the fairways and greens have been painted, the greens still ran true. Enjoyed the day and will go back.

All in all a very nice course, but sadly we played it the day after playing Kings North and no greens in the MB area can compare to those. Not as scenic of a course as the other 2 at The Legends as it is built around the villas. A good test of golf, greens has a lot of grain making then tough to read. Some tough forced carries for the higher handicap guys in our group, but all in all still a very nice track.
