Myrtle Beach’s “Hidden Gem” Golf Holes: Tradition Club No. 6

Assistant Head Golf Professional Kurtis Kuhn gives us the lowdown on one of Myrtle Beach golf’s true “Hidden Gem” holes: the par-4 6th hole at Tradition Golf Club – situated just a stone’s throw off Hwy. 17 in beautiful Pawleys Island.

As Kurtis tells us:

“Hole No. 6 at Tradition Club is a par 4 that provides many different options off the teeing ground. It plays to a length of 360 yards from the championship tees, and to 310 yards from the forward tees.

“You can choose your driver off the tee leaving you a short iron into the green, or lay up off the tee leaving a longer second shot into the green. The fairway is a double fairway guarded by beautiful tall mature trees down the left side, and out-of-bounds area down the right.

“If you choose to go for the left fairway, this is the riskier of the two options. You will be required to carry a pond to get there, but it is elevated so it gives you a better shot to the green.  If you bail out to the right away from the water you will end up in a lower fairway which is protected by a large bunker, and will leave you with a blind second shot.

“The second shot plays to a green that slopes from front to back and is guarded by bunkers to the left. It is a shot that requires a great deal of accuracy and distance control, as it is one of the more narrow greens on the course. For the longer hitters off the tee there is a severe downhill slope about 75 yards from the green; if you can get your tee shot to land on the downslope of the fairway it will shoot your ball up close to the green. We call this the “power alley,” but it brings into play the deep bunker down the right side of the fairway.

“This is a great risk-reward hole. Hit a good tee shot and you can be staring down a birdie, but don’t let this gem of a hole fool you. If you’re not careful, before you know you could walk off this green carding a bogey with all the trouble lurking.”
