Going Low? These 4 Courses Offer the Best Chance on the North Strand

November 9, 2015

Beachwood Golf Club will give you a chance to scoreAll golfers have a bit of masochist in them, but we all like to post a low number on occasion. With that mind, here are the four golf courses located between North Myrtle Beach and Brunswick County that are most likely to yield the best round of your trip. 

Beachwood Golf Club’s primary appeal is its friendly nature, which includes a hospitable staff, a value price, and, most notably, a design that allows golfers every opportunity to play well. Beachwood is home to some of the widest fairways on the Myrtle Beach golf scene and greens that provide a true roll but don’t overwhelm players with undulation. 

— Playing from the 6,080-yard white tees, Meadowlands Golf Club only has one par 5 longer than 452 yards and one par 3 that extends beyond 150 yards. The course doesn’t require great length and the greens are always good. If you struggle here, the blame lies with the person swinging the club. 

— In addition to having a name no one forgets, Possum Trot Golf Club can send players home with a score they will always remember. The course is open, always in good shape and isn’t overly penal. Whether you go low or not, Possum Trot will provide a pleasant experience. 

— A former Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course of the Year, Sandpiper Bay Country Club is a 27-hole facility that (rightfully) takes pride in not overwhelming players. The fairways are open, as are the front of the greens complexes, allowing players to run the ball up. Sandpiper has been making proactive changes to the course in recent years, nearly all of them with the idea of making the layout more playable in mind. 

If you needed to go low, which course along the North Strand would you choose to play?
