Just a short drive past the Intracoastal Waterway from Myrtle Beach’s famous sandy beaches sits Burning Ridge Golf Club, a Myrtle Beach golf experience created in the spirit of the game’s finest traditions. Join us on a video journey through this popular design, and check out the hole-by-hole photo gallery below.
This stellar Gene Hamm design plays to a par 72 and highlights the most common yet popular elements that have made the Grand Strand “The Golf Capital of the World”: mature long-leaf pines, thoughtful hole construction, a seamless design that blends perfectly with its natural surroundings and superb course conditions on a year-round basis.
Burning Ridge presents a challenging yet fair test of your game from each set of tees it offers, with an emphasis on keeping shots in the fairway. Attempting to overpower this course is not your best play on most holes.
The big hitters in your group will find the par fives reachable in two should they find the fairway off the tee with a long drive. Their challenge, though, will come on the par 3s – particularly holes No. 12 and 17, with water surrounding each of these peninsula greens.
Hamm has his own way of camouflaging fairways with bunkers and strategically placed trees, but don’t let that fool you as golfers will find plenty of room in the landing areas to place your shot.
Burning Ridge rewards patience off the tee, and offers a distinct advantage to strong shotmakers. TifEagle Bermuda greens offer steady, smooth putting surfaces whose speed is manageable when paired with the notable undulation found on many of them.
With a centralized location convenient to many area attractions and amenities, Burning Ridge Golf Club continues to be a most popular option for golf vacationers and local residents alike. We invite you to come enjoy the experience!
