Join us for a spectacular video tour of a Fred Couples-designed masterpiece along the Grand Strand’s northern shores: Carolina National, a 27-hole masterpiece with three 9-hole layouts that each offer distinctly different challenges. A hole-by-hole photo gallery of the Ibis and Heron nines appears below.
Set alongside the banks of the Lockwood Folly River sits a coveted 27-hole facility that continues to amaze golfers everyday: Carolina National Golf Club, the Fred Couples signature design that stands out as a one-of-a-kind Lowcountry experience.
With three nines (Egret, Ibis and Heron), players will always have a unique combination for their round and little concern of pace of play. Opened in 1998, Carolina National celebrates its 20th year anniversary in 2018 and has earned accolades from Golf Digest as one of the best places to play on the eastern seaboard.
As an Audubon-Certified Sanctuary Golf Course, incredible wildlife feels right at home that players will see throughout their entire time at Carolina National. With superb Bermuda grass playing surfaces all year round, Freddie Couples brought the “Augusta feel” to Carolina National with beautifully framed tee shots, strategic bunkering and memorable holes that draw members and guest back again and again.
Two unforgettable par-threes front the Lockwood Folly River: the 5th on Ibis, and the 5th on Heron, each with breathtaking water vistas. Another signature hole is the finishing ninth par-four on the Ibis nine, a picturesque hole with a double fairway split by an oak-filled bunker and a green protected by water on the approach.
The Carolina National experience is complemented by its signature Lowcountry hospitality and a beautiful clubhouse overlooking the ninth hole of the Heron nine. Come see how this signature Fred Couples design has become a must-play destination for every Myrtle Beach golf trip. Carolina National is golf at its best, and well worth the drive.
