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.

Played these 3 course complex several times this is the best of the 3.
This time ,and playing my last round. I came to the conclusion ,that
these courses have gone for resort to more of a golf factory.
the greens are not true and the has to do with the amount of play the are subjected to.and when was the last time they replaced the chairs at the grill bar , my guess is never. But you get what you pay for . next time I will spend a little more. I will not be going back to the 3 factory courses anytime soon. To bad when I 1st played the course 13 years ago they were some of the the finest in myrtle.

Tough course for an average player. Severe traps (height) and difficult to recover from.

Second round replay, and the Parkland is a nice course. It rained on the front nine, literally pouring on ##9 so we were thinking about quitting; however, we continued on and finished quickly as everyone else stopped and we had the back 9 to ourselves. The Parkland is in excellent shape...fairways and greens excellent. Because of the rain, it was cart path only, so the mounding created a lot of stress on the calves! Great exercise, though. The Legends does an exceptional job in keeping all three courses in great shape given the amount of play. Kudos to the Superintendent and staff! Parkland has wide fairways and is fair, with a nice balance of challenge and chances for success. The greens are also large. Easier than the Moorland, so you might want to start on this one if you want something a little easier to start.
