Myrtlewood’s Palmetto Course a Favorite for Locals and Visitors

By:Bob Gillespie


Writer Ian Guerin, a longtime reporter for Myrtle Beach’s Sun News newspaper, knows golf on the Grand Strand. And not just the high-end, nationally ranked courses such as Caledonia, True Blue, Tidewater and Myrtle Beach National’s King’s North. With nearly 100 layouts to choose from, there are courses to suit every budget, time frame and even location.

Location, in fact, is one of the selling points for Myrtlewood Golf Club, situated right in the middle of the 50-mile stretch of South Carolina coastline. As Guerin points out in an online review, location has made Myrtlewood’s two 18-hole layouts a favorite destination for regular visitors to the golf Mecca.

“There are plenty of tracks on South Carolina’s Grand Strand golfing hub that would trade locations with Myrtlewood Golf Club’s Palmetto Course in a heartbeat,” he writes. “Easily accessible via one of the area’s biggest thoroughfares (US 17), Palmetto continues to draw player after player after player to the heart of Myrtle Beach’s golfing center.”

But location isn’t the only attraction, Guerin writes. Myrtlewood “can also boast … some high-quality fairways, playable roughs, fair-yet-challenging approach shots based around protected greens and consistent putting surfaces.”
