Our friendly staff and experienced golf-packaging managers are ready and waiting to help you plan your ultimate Myrtle Beach golf adventure. Check out these three courses close to Paradise that come highly recommended as a quick golf getaway during your vacation:


  • Arrowhead Country Club
    What’s better than 18 engaging holes of golf with scenic views of the Intracoastal Waterway? Try 27 holes, a trait that makes Arrowhead one of the Grand Strand’s courses groups love playing multiple times – sometimes on the same trip! Its Waterway, Cypress and Lakes nines were designed by Tom Jackson in consultation with Raymond Floyd, and given Floyd’s reputation as one of the fiercest Ryder Cup competitors in golf history, Arrowhead is the perfect venue for a friendly match. Great putters will particularly love Arrowhead’s fast, beautifully maintained putting surfaces.
  • Burning Ridge Golf Club
    A past Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year and South Carolina Golf Course of the Year winner, Burning Ridge Golf Club is located in the center of the Grand Strand, just off highway 501 between Myrtle Beach and the town of Conway. It is a pleasant, traditional Southern parkland golf course that is also popular among women and senior players due to relatively few forced water carries and many greens where one can run the ball up, rather than carry it all the way on. That does not leave Burning Ridge without its challenges, however. The 12th hole is a stout par three that can play as long as 250 yards to a green guarded by both a bunker and water hazard. One-shot holes that require a full wood shot are rare, and Burning Ridge’s version is an excellent one.
  • Legends Resort – Parkland Course
    If 27 holes are better than 18, then 54 holes is a veritable golfer’s wonderland. Such is Legends Resort, with three excellent layouts: Heathland, Moorland and Parkland. The Parkland Course is perhaps Legends’ most eclectic 18, with holes routed over open land and through forests, around lakes, wetlands and artistic bunkering. The Parkland course really hits its stride on the back nine, especially with the long par-3 16th, which stretches to a whopping 235 yards from the back Blue tees.
