International Club is a beautiful tree-lined course that has rolling terrain with bits of marshland and crystal clear finger lakes. The greens are traditionally smooth rolling and true. The #11th hole is a par 3 island green signature hole. In GolfMaster Jim’s opinion this is the best course that Williard Byrd has designed. Some narrow some wide fairways make you think what club to hit especially if you are not constantly straight down the middle. A new GPS system was installed to help you play your way around the course. Holes #9 and #18 are excellent par 5s to finish on.
Carolina National is a 4.5 star rated Freddie Couples jewel. 5 tees to choose from on each of the 27 magnificent holes…135 tees so you can play; different tee shot from each tee. Each tee presents a different look for every skill level. The three nines are named for the native waterbirds that make the course their home…Egret, Heron and Ibis. Carolina National is recognized and certified as an Audubon Sanctuary. The course winds through low country marshes and by the Lockwood Folly River. 400-year-old majestic oaks, large waste bunkers and manicured undulating large greens await your challenge. All 3 9s are equal in the challenge so you’ll want to pre-book a replay allowing you to attach 18 in the morning, grab some lunch and head back out to play the rest of the course. After your golf head for the superb 19th hole pub…dine inside or out on the porch.
Blackmoor Golf Club
Blackmoor is located just south of Myrtle Beach in Murrells Inlet on S.C. Hwy 707.Wild turkeys, gators and deer can be seen on the course as you are in a pristine natural area. “Hit every shot in your bag” is Gary Players idea of how to play golf…and Blackmoor fits that description to a tee. Many challenging holes of risk and reward. Cut the dogleg and be on the green…fall short and you’re in the marsh. Moderate undulating and average to large greens and plenty of greenside bunkers. Several holes have dual fairways. Some of the shorter holes are the most challenging as you have?to decide to “go for it” or lay back. This is a thinking man’s course. Go brain dead and record a snowman. Most fairways are average in width with few fairway bunkers. 400 year old oaks and majestic pines border most of the fairways.
