Despite routine nods for customer service, and even with a pair of high-profile Golf Course of the Year awards (Golf Digest, Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association), the draw of Myrtle Beach'sWorld Tour Golf Links is the feelings the replica holes here can recreate for everyone.
The course, patterned off some of the most infamous holes from around the globe, provides two nines or raw emotion tied to golf’s greatest memories.
The Open 9 honors the sites of various U.S. and British Opens, as well as the National Golf Club of Canada. The Championship 9 is then inspired by the Grand Slam. Together, they have something no other course can all on its own.
“It’s just the uniqueness,” head professional Casey Cook said. “It gives people who can’t afford the chance to play those golf courses an opportunity to hit the island green or play Amen Corner. Maybe one percent can play [the originals].”
Arguably the best of the best at World Tour is the third hole on the Open 9. Mimicking TPC Sawgrass No. 17, players on the par 3 are no more than 132 yards from an island green that tends to swallow up tee shots much like the hole it celebrates.

Very good golf course. Need to play it once as it is fun. Course was wet from all the rain, but still played nicely. Staff was A+++++. Really knew how to make the player have a nice experience and treated us first class.

This was my first experience playing in Myrtle Beach and your course was the only one that I played. We were visiting our son and your course was awesome!

It was unique in that the holes were modeled after famous holes around the world. The course was challenging, but there was definitely some residual water from the recent storms. There were many times when we expected the ball to bounce, but it stuck in the mud instead.
Based on the reviews and feedback received at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider throughout a busy spring season, here are five courses that are riding a “hot” streak – and that are worthy of your consideration for teeing it up this summer!
No matter how great the first 17 holes of a round might be, the memory of a course is often tied to the finisher. A jaw-dropping No. 18 can put you in an emotional state that leaves you craving more. Up and down South Carolina’s Grand Strand, five of the area’s courses are home to some fantastic finishers.
Since 1996, eight Myrtle Beach-area golf courses have been honored by the South Carolina Golf Course Owners Association (SCGCOA) as its Golf Course of the Year – while two courses have ascended to elite status as the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) Golf Course of the Year.
