The 18-hole Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club in Pawleys Island, S.C. is a semi-private golf course that opened in 1988. With subtle greens enveloped by sand bunkers, challenging fairways dotted with water and unique obstacles evident on every hole, Pawleys Plantation is a player's course that demands strategy, ingenuity and above all, concentration. "You'll have to think your way around this course," said course designer Jack Nicklaus. But he's quick to add, "as for beauty, on a scale from one to 10, it's pretty close to a 10." A few of the course highlights include: the par-3, third hole requiring a forced carry over water from tee to green; the par-5, 14th hole where you must negotiate the marsh off the tee shot to a split fairway just before the green; or the tremendous par-4, 18th hole that permits only a well placed drive down a narrow fairway bordered by marsh, sprawling oaks and pines.

    This course was challenging with beautiful views on each hole, especially the back nine. It was in excellent shape, considering it was February. The par 3's on 13 and 17 can be very intimidating. Add a little breeze and they can be knee-knockers. I can't wait to see this course in the Spring time. I played it on a chilly day, which made it play longer. It is just a notch or 2 below Pebble Beach! I would highly recommend taking on the challenge. The key is to don't try to kill it off the tee with the driver. Dial it back and keep it playable is the way to approach Pawleys Plantation. I'm a 20 handicap and when I used a little course management, I was more successful. Should be right at the top of your list when planning a golf vacation in the Myrtle Beach area. The level of service was what I would expect for a venue with the reputation of Pawleys Plantation. You will not be disappointed with your experience.
