– On the Championship 9, Plankers couldn’t pick a single hole, choosing instead the most popular series of holes at World Tour – Amen Corner. Holes four through six on the Championship 9 replicate 11-12-13 at Augusta National and people love it. The sixth hole duplicates the par 5 12th hole at Augusta, including “Rae’s Creek” cutting in front of the green, bringing the stretch to a stunning conclusion.
Playing holes that simulate the most popular stretch in golf is a highlight for everyone that plays World Tour on a Myrtle Beach golf trip.
– On the International 9, Plankers favors one of the most popular holes in Europe, the par 5, fourth hole at Valderrama Golf Club in Spain. The second hole on the International 9 duplicates the Valderrama classic and even includes the waterfall surrounding the green.
With ample length (520 yards) and a narrow, tiered green, it’s best to approach this beauty with caution.
“The smart money is to layup and hit a wedge shot in,” Plankers said. “If you can hit it that far you have a chance (to reach the green in two), but you have to hit a perfect shot.”
