Tidewater Golf Club

This course has earned our number one spot.  Tidewater Golf has been recognized as one of the premier North Myrtle Beach golf courses. Golf Digest named it one of America’s top 100 greatest public courses. This is something you truly need to see for yourself. Why wait?  Book your tee time now.

Grande Dunes

Called “one of the great golf clubs in the world” by PGA Magazine, Grande Dunes Resort Club was recently named the “National Golf Course of the Year” by the NGCOA. With a fantastic view of the Intracoastal Waterway, Marina Inn, and Grande Dunes Marina, this course is known for its links-style design and offers Bermuda grass fairways and contoured greens.

Tournament Players Club of Myrtle Beach

TPC  Myrtle Beach is the only course in the Grand Strand to be awarded five stars by Golf Digest magazine and was the host of the Senior PGA Tour Championship in 2000. TPC also has a large pro shop that offers a great view of the 18th hole. After enjoying the pro shop, you can also check out the TPC Grille for food and drinks while continuing to enjoy the view of the last hole.

Legends Golf Resort

Legends Golf Resort offers not just one but five courses in Myrtle Beach! This resort also boasts a breakfast buffet for those who are looking to eat before an early tee time. Golfers can also stop at one of three club houses, depending on their course.

Barefoot Golf Resort
