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.

Beautiful clubhouse, practice areas, and course. All rough (nonexisstent) brown and dead. Greens seemed slow. Not in pristine condition, but cool to play the holes they tried their best to simulate. Overall a good experience, would recommend, but probably not go back with all the other options.

The staff made us feel extremely comfortable and were very welcoming. We would highly recommend this course and will definitely be back. Beat golf course and experience we've ever had!

excellent course..great shape..the most memorable of it all you ask? The cart girl...Kelley..a true asset to this business. She deserves to be in management. Super friendly, a killer smile, best southern accent(though she wont admit she has one) legs for miles..if shes not a "10" she's a 9.9..Oh, and she drives a pickup truck..enough said..

The course is in excellent shape for February and fun to enable yourself playing mirror image holes of some famous courses. Now with that being said...we all want to make believe that we can hit 300 yards but it isn't going to happen guys. Play the set of tees that will make it enjoyable to everyone or and if you really want to bring the spouse pick a later tee time. What happen to golf etiquette...as a twosome we had to follow this foursome "couples" the entire 9 holes with a 4 hole gap in front of them. The ranger did nothing even if he came around at least 3 times. I am a local so I can play anywhere and will do so, as I will leave this one for the "tourists" since this golf course made the decision to focus on the well being of these folks.

Course is in excellent shape. Staff was very friendly. Pace of play was slow today due to some groups playing from the wrong Tee Boxes. Play from a Tee Box that fits your handicap & it would be more enjoyable for everyone. Would recommend this course.

Liked recognizing all of the replicated holes and reading the signs at the tee boxes with descriptions of what famous course each hole was from.

I was treated professionally from the moment I arrived until the moment I departed

detailed rules of this course, like the pace of the 18-hole play, course starter very rude
The number of golf courses who declare their elevation changes in their bios along South Carolina’s Grand Strand is vast. A handful of options exist where the start, finish and everything in-between rolls as straight as possible without mounding or hills getting in the way.
There are so-called golf meccas in the United States that bill themselves as having a course for everyone. And even though reputations are earned and tastes differ, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that Myrtle Beach has lost more courses in the last 15 years than some of those other areas are still boasting.
Sometimes, the name brand speaks for itself. While South Carolina’s Grand Strand is a vibrant collection of communities with individual identities and their own golf attractions, the centerpiece of it all has been and will always be Myrtle Beach.
