5 Great Stay & Play Options at Myrtle Beach Golf Course Properties

True Blue Villas

Myrtle Beach is home to nearly 90 golf courses and traveling the area to play them is part of the attraction, but let’s be honest, staying and playing in one place is appealing. Whether your group wants to play a round or two onsite or never wants to venture off property, here are five of Myrtle Beach’s premier stay-and-play options. 

Legends was the Grand Strand’s first resort property and it remains among the most popular. Legends is home to the Heathland, Moorland and Parkland courses, one of America’s premier practice facilities, and multiple onsite restaurants. The golf courses are outstanding – Heathland is one of Tom Doak’s early designs, while Moorland is a P.B. Dye layout – and the amenities are their equal. The multi-bedroom condos offer an abundance of options for groups, and did we mention the lighted driving range?

Barefoot Resort opened four courses – the Dye, Fazio, Love and Norman – simultaneously and the surrounding accommodations and amenities are outstanding, enhancing the resort’s considerable appeal. Group leaders have their choice of 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom condos. The quartet of courses playout of two clubhouse, both offering outstanding food, while Putter’s Pub, located at the entrance of the driving range, is always fun. Throw in Barefoot Landing and its host of dining and nightlife options and it’s easy to understand why groups flock to the property.

The Mystical Golf condos fly under the radar as a stay-and-play option, but take note. Just yards from Man O’ War and The Wizard, a pair of Dan Maples designs that players love, the multi-bedroom condos are an ideal base. The appeal of a Mystical stay-and-play is enhanced by its location in the heart of Carolina Forest, meaning your group is located less than a mile from a cluster of restaurants and sports bars.

Brunswick County is home to some of the area’s best (and most underrated) courses and Sea Trail Golf Resort, home to the Jones, Maples and Byrd layouts, is the area’s best stay-and-play option. With 54 holes, two clubhouse restaurants, and new ownership working tirelessly to improve every facet of the experience, Sea Trail is one of the area’s quiet stars.

Caledonia and True Blue are both ranked among Golfweek’s top 100 resort courses, and staying in the condos at True Blue is a no-brainer. Golfers can sleep just yards from the acclaimed Mike Strantz designs, both of which are ranked among South Carolina’s top 5 public courses. Both clubhouses serve outstanding food and the nearby restaurants will rival some of the best in the Palmetto State.

If your group prioritizes staying and playing at one site, Legends, Barefoot, the Mystical courses, Sea Trail and Caledonia and True Blue should be near the top of your 2024 wish list.
