Lion’s Paw Golf Links

Lions Paw Hole 14

Lions Paw

Lions Paw Golf Links, awarded 3 1/2 STARS in Golf Digest’s “Places To Play” is described as the eminent Willard Byrd’s finest work. Wild and untamed, rustic, and quiet, this magnificent golf course presents a lion’s share of adventure and challenge accompanied by nature’s best scenery. The finishing hole plays open from the tee and then flows through the trees to the green. Golf Digest also declared Lion’s Paw “The best golf in the Myrtle Beach area.”

Distinguished by towering hardwoods, bold contoured MiniVerde greens, spectacular water shots, and mounds of sugar-white sand marking deep bunkers and high embankments, this 18-hole layout is one of the Grand Strand’s most popular courses.
