Possum Trot opened in 1968 with a mission to serve the common man and it's stayed that way all these years. They allow walking, which is nice because the course is known for its year-round conditioning. It was built to give the average gentleman or lady golfer a pleasantly challenging, but not threatening, morning or afternoon on well-kept fairways and manicured greens.

It's a Russell Breeden design, and he put in wide, mostly flat fairways and large, mostly flat greens. The course plays through Carolina pines, a few oaks, lakes and ponds. Look for the 200-yard, par-3 13th, which has water the length of the left side and five large bunkers backing the green. Hey, that's why you brought the cooler.

It's a public course and a traditional coastal Carolina layout, and they space the tee times so you can enjoy the beer you brought, although there is a size restriction on the coolers. Bring small beer. It's a very playable course, with a slope rating of 127, and the greens are TidDwarf Bermuda. A great bargain for the price. Improvements have been made in the last few years, including reshaping tees and fairways, improving additional mounding and irrigation and drainage improvements. Possum Trot also has the first complete indoor-outdoor practice and instructional facility in Myrtle Beach.

This was Possum Trot for generations of winter, spring, summer, and autumn visitors to the Myrtle Beach area and for resident golfers at special winter and summer rates.

Things have changed dramatically at Possum Trot in the last few years; the conditioning, the course appearance, and the friendliness of the staff are all still here. But many improvements have been made including reshaping tees and fairways, improving additional mounding and irrigation and drainage improvements.

Possum Trot has the first complete indoor-outdoor practice and instructional facility in Myrtle Beach.
