Grand Strand dominates state golf course rankings

Hole 12

Golfweek has unveiled its annual list of the “Best Courses You Can Play” in each state, and Myrtle Beach again dominated the ranking of South Carolina’s best public courses.

Nine of the Palmetto State’s top 15 public layouts were located along the Grand Strand, according Golfweek, highlighting the depth and quality of the area’s offerings.

Myrtle Beach courses were led by the Dunes Golf & Beach Club and Caledonia Golf & Fish Club as Golfweek ranked both layouts among its “Top 100 Best Courses You Can Play,” a list of America’s best public layouts. Dunes Club is America’s 48th best public course and Caledonia is 60th on the list.

Golfweek ranked Kiawah’s Ocean Course, Harbor Town and May River as the top 3 courses in South Carolina before the floodgates opened for Myrtle Beach. The Dunes Club (No. 4) and Caledonia (No. 5), were followed by True Blue (No. 6), Tidewater (No. 7), Moorland (No. 9), Heritage (No. 10), TPC Myrtle Beach (No. 12), Dye Course at Barefoot Resort (No. 13) and King’s North at Myrtle Beach National (No. 14).

Further highlighting the strength of the Grand Strand golf market, Leopard’s Chase at Ocean Ridge Plantation was ranked the 11th best course in North Carolina.

Myrtle Beach, home to 90 courses, is golf’s most popular destination, attracting players with its unmatched combination of quality golf and legendary value.
