Best golf courses to play in Myrtle Beach

By Connor Brown

Myrtle Beach is one of the best spots for an all inclusive destination golf trip. It's not only great for golf, but an amazing spot to dine, shop, and stay. Myrtle Beach also has one of the best stretches of sand on the east coast!

If you’re like me and center your trips around your golf rounds, Myrtle Beach offers amazing courses at unbeatable prices. The next time you are planning your trip to the Myrtle Beach area, make sure to add these courses to your llist.

1) Legends Golf Resort

The Legends Golf Resort is a top notch facility in Myrtle Beach. Known for their fantastic course conditions and all inclusive rates, which always include breakfast, lunch and 2 free beverages, Legends is an absolute must play when visiting Myrtle Beach. Having three 18 hole courses right on site and 2 more just a short drive away, Legends offers everything from their Parkland course which features tree-lined fairways and water hazards to the Moorland course which features “Hell's Half Acre” on the 245 yard par-4 16th and plenty of elevation changes and natural waste area.

Nextgengolf chose the resort to host the 2018 Spring Break Open, with over 100 golfers descending upon Legends back to back weekends in March. We are looking forward to returning in 2019!

True blue Golf Club

2) True Blue and Caledonia

True Blue and Caledonia are amazing courses in their own right, but having two world class golf courses right across the street from each other is simply amazing. True Blue with it’s massive waste and natural areas that line many fairways juxtaposes amazingly with the charm and quaintness of Caledonia. When entering Caledonia through it’s gorgeous driveway, the calming and relaxing feeling of the quaint near silence reveals one of the most beautiful golf courses in Myrtle Beach. Both challenging in their own right, Caledonia and True Blue both offer much different challenges. While True Blue shows it’s teeth right away with a 600 yard par 5, Caledonia challenges you to hit the ball straight but baits you to hit the perfect shot.

Barefoot Resort - Dye Course

3) Barefoot Resort

With 4 courses on property, you can expect nothing less than perfection when going to Barefoot Resort. Having a Love, Fazio, Dye, and Norman course, each layout and design will prompt a multitude of shots and create the necessity to use every club in your bag. From the water filled but playable Norman to the white sanded bunkers in the Dye course, these golf courses will leave an everlasting image in your mind, synonymous with the fantastic golf Myrtle Beach has to offer. Seeing that Golf Digest once ranked the Dye course in the top 100 courses you can play, the Dye course is an absolute must on your trip to Barefoot. The NCCGA hosted Nationals here back in 2013 and is still regarded as one of the best Nationals host sites.
