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.

Being from Maine, I hadn't ever experienced such a nice golf course with fantastic attendants before. Everyone was very polite and personable. It was a really hot day (hot compared to what I'm used to in the north) so the cold peppermint cloths at the end was just about the most refreshing experience ever!

Each hole is unique. Wish they still had the 3rd 9 holes open.

Had the best "driving" day of my life there! I'd like to think your course brought out the best in me!

Course is in great shape. Excellent staff, cold towels at end of round is a nice touch being very warm. Greens putted fast & true. Pace of play was a little slow but OK....

After returning to Myrtle Beach after fifteen years and playing World Tour when I was last there, I would definitely play again
