TPC Myrtle Beach, located on the southern half of the Grand Strand in South Carolina, is the area’s only design rated 5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” Guide. This Tom Fazio-designed, 18-hole championship golf course lives up to its billing from the entrance all the way to the 19th hole, and delivers an incredible experience for all golfers.
One of Golf Digest's “Top 100 Public Courses in America” and voted into the Top 10 golf courses of South Carolina by Golfweek, TPC Myrtle Beach is an absolute must-play. It tests golfers on every single shot while still greatly rewarding good swings with plenty of opportunities to score. Measuring 6,950 from the Tournament tees, TPC will keep you on your toes from start to finish. “Fair yet challenging” and “tough but playable” are just two of the common phrases used by visiting golfers who play TPC Myrtle Beach.
A fantastic example of what this design has to offer is its signature hole, the par-5 18th. Standing on the tee box of this 538-yard finishing hole, Fazio gives you an awesome view of the entire hole with the clubhouse as a great backdrop. A diabolical creek runs along the right hand side of the fairway, forcing golfers to steer their tee shot left where hearty live oaks and pines lie in wait. With a good drive you will be enticed into going for the green in two, but first-timers beware: the creek opens up into a large water hazard which surrounds 3 sides of the green. Laying up is probably your best option, but if you're feeling daring you may be able to hit the green in two.

The TPC is a wonderful design & layout. However, the fairways are the worst in all of the Grand Strand! They try to blame it on excessive rain but that is simply not true. The fairways were in terrible shape even before the rains set in. If excessive rain is the problem, then why are most of the other courses in the area in so much better shape? I live in the TPC area and on the day after new year I took my visiting nephew to play at the TPC. It was terribly embarrassing! The course was unplayable. Until and if they ever solve this problem I will not be playing this course. As of now, I would not play it if it were free!

I realize there is no easy answer to the problem but, leaves around and on the fairways were a bit of a problem on a few holes. I HATE losing a ball when it should have been easy to find. Again, I know this is a problem that has no real solution. I would say everything else should be kept as is! Well oiled machine!!!

I really enjoyed the game however was very disappointed with the condition of the fairways as they were still very wet from recent rains. I was offered a raincheck before I started but didn't realize how wet it really was and since I am traveling on holiday and did not have time to return later, I played on.
Most disappointment though stemmed because since we were started on the 10th after 1 p.m., which was more than half an hour late when we had a booking time for 12.28 p.m. and because of this we did not finish before dark.
I play off 7 and I had a good score going on the front 9 and was -1 after the 7th, I got on in regulation on the 8th after hitting off in the dark, and then 4 putted because i was rushing to get on the the 9th tee hoping I may still find my tee shot in the dark, I didn't find it and didn't finish which was disappointing because I had a chance to shoot under par for the 9 if we had been started on time.
All said though I still enjoyed the course and had a good day, but feel that our delayed tee time definitely left me feeling disappointed when I had a rare chance to post a good score on the front 9 which we played second.

It was a very bad experience...course was not In a playing condition....can not walk or hit the ball from fairway... Lost many balls in the middle of fairway...very bad.

Unfortunately I played the course a day after two full days of rain. That is the only reason I ranked it lower. It was extremely wet, if not for that it would have been in excellent shape all the way around.

Very nice course despite having a hurricane in October. Staff was awesome. Enjoyed my round even though I had to hurry to beat the sun going down.
