Two “Hidden Gem” Holes at Myrtlewood Golf Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

With 36 holes nestled between Hwy. 17 Bypass and the Intracoastal Waterway, Myrtlewood Golf Club’s Palmetto and PineHills courses offer two compelling course options for your next Myrtle Beach golf getaway. Given their close proximity to area lodging and attractions, these designs by Edmund Ault (Palmetto) and Arthur Hills (PineHills) have combined convenience and playability over the years to elevate Myrtlewood among the Grand Strand’s most frequented complexes.

With such popularity comes familiarity with Myrtlewood’s iconic holes, including the finishing holes on Palmetto that dramatically play into and along the Intracoastal. But two holes of lesser renown at Myrtlewood Golf Club are just as worthy of your attention, and qualify for “hidden gem” status that is sure to give you a lasting memory the next time you play them, as described below by Myrtlewood Head Golf Professional Ryan Ruddy.

Palmetto No. 14

“This par 4 is only 366 yards, but it plays longer.  With water running down the whole right side, players have two options.  They could choose to lay up off the tee, which will require a long iron approach to an elevated green; or to hit the ‘big dog’ and challenge the water side of the fairway, leaving a short club into the green.  Once players negotiate the first shot either way, they are left with a slightly uphill second shot to the largest and most undulated green on Palmetto.”

PineHills No. 18

“This is a perfect finishing hole to your round.  The par 4 plays a modest 374 yards from the white tees, and features everything a round-ending hole should offer.  It has a slight blind tee shot, with bunkers that protect the right side of the fairway from hitters who elect to cut off some yardage; to a postage stamp green guarded by water along the left side.”
