Arrowhead Country Club is a unique Myrtle Beach golf course. Being located along the Intracoastal, my first thought was flat and boring, however Arrowhead is anything but.
In fact, Arrowhead provides some of the most aesthetically pleasing golf holes in the Myrtle Beach area; not to mention some of the best greens and manicured fairways and hazards. You’ll encounter several elevation changes, hardwood forests of pine and live oak and wetlands – lots of wetlands.
Arrowhead will also have you thinking more about each shot and how to execute it rather than just bombing away. The emphasis here is on shot making and hitting your shot – whether it’s a drive or approach shot – to a particular spot in order to get the ball close. Longball hitters will find some of the par 4 holes drivable while the rest of us will just have to rely on a good short game to score well.
Should you feel the need to warm up before your round, Arrowhead has a full-length driving range as well as separate chipping and putting areas. Inside the clubhouse, you’ll find a full service bar and grill that serves all of your favorite club food and libations as well as a fully stocked pro-shop complete with all of the logoed gear you could ever want.
Actually, either of the par 5s on this nine could easily make the list, but this short par 4 is the poster child of target golf. Hit the tee shot left of the double bunkers on the right side; 200 yards is all you need. Then it’s a 100-yard pitch shot, slightly downhill and over water to a green protected on all sides by sand. This hole can yield a low score with two well executed shots. Of course, big numbers are possible as well, depending on your execution.
When you combine these things with a well-conditioned golf course, reasonable greens fees and free range balls you can understand why Arrowhead is a popular repeat-play Myrtle Beach golf course for visiting golfers and locals alike.
