One Day, 36 Holes, Next To No Driving

Wild Wing Plantation Golf Club

Story by Ian Guerin

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. | It’s easy for some package providers to link you up with two rounds at different courses in the same day. We have 90 courses here on South Carolina’s Grand Strand, and something is always open. However, it’s not always so easy for you to get from one place to the next. Loading and unloading clubs, turning in a cart, snagging a bite to eat between rounds (who can play golf for eight hours without food?) and getting from one locale to the next adds up quicker than you may think. And if you’re feeling rushed, how much enjoyment are you really going to get from the end of the first round or the beginning of the second? We took all that into consideration when coming up for this 36-hole Myrtle Beach golf cheat sheet. With minimal planning and not even really knowing the lay of the land, we’ve put together five great options for a two-round day without using a single multi-course site.

 

WILD WING PLANTATION / BURNING RIDGE GOLF CLUB

Distance between courses: A really long putt. Seriously, the entrances across U.S. 501 from each other.

Lunch suggestion: Whether you’re starting or finishing at Wild Wing, the clubhouse’s expansive bar and grill is your best bet. The menu is pretty wide open, thanks in part to the venue also serving as a wedding spot.

Pro tip: If you want to max out your time and play your cards right, you could even add the nine-hole Hummingbird course at Wild Wing to make it a 45-hole day.

 

PINE LAKES COUNTRY CLUB / MYRTLEWOOD GOLF PINEHILLS COURSE

Distance between courses: 1.8 miles

Lunch suggestion: It would be difficult to not eat at Pine Lakes inside the remodeled dining room, but if you’re heading to Myrtlewood, the Intracoastal Waterway views are one heck of a backdrop.

Pro tip: Take a few moments and meander through the Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame at Pine Lakes. You can gain some knowledge that helped craft this golfing mecca.

 

PAWLEYS PLANTATION GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB / FOUNDERS CLUB

Distance between courses: 1.7 miles

Lunch suggestion: The pub at Pawleys Plantation is top notch and adept at the quick turnaround despite a wide-ranging menu.

Pro tip: These two courses are among the more difficult layouts on the south end of the Strand. Pace yourself if you’re going to try to tackle both on the same day.

 

RIVER HILLS GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB / EAGLE NEST GOLF CLUB

Distance between courses: 2.1 miles. It feels much shorter, given that most of that 2.1 is through the entryways of the two properties.

Lunch suggestion: If you’re going to eat off-site, we suggest Sunny Side Up Grill, located next to the entrance to River Hills. This is a true breakfast/lunch style diner, which means fast.

Pro tip: Keep the camera or smart phone ready on both of these tracks. There’s enough definition in the properties to inspire great shots throughout.

 

TPC OF MYRTLE BEACH / BLACKMOOR GOLF CLUB

Distance between courses: 2.1 miles

Lunch suggestion: The Champions Pub at TPC was touched up not all that long ago. It still feels brand new. A full menu is complemented by a beer list that includes plenty of craft beer choices.

Pro tip: Watch your footing on the 18th at TPC, where the pond stretching up the left side of the fairway up toward the green is a normal resting spot for a decent-sized gator.TPC Myrtle Beach 7th Hole
