The back nine at Jack Nicklaus’ Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club showcases several dramatic approaches framed by marshland, perhaps none more challenging than at its par-4 16th hole. Join us for a dynamic aerial tour of this beauty!

This hole is a brute. On this long par 4, only a long tee shot will reach the corner of the dogleg.

The marsh runs down the right side of your approach, all the way to the back of the green.

A sand bunker runs parallel to the marsh, separating it from the putting surface. There’s also a bunker on the left.

This green needed to be large to accept a long-iron second shot.
