Myrtlewood Pinehills Course
The Myrtlewood PineHills Golf Course been singled out by Golf Digest as one of the “Top Ten Courses” in Myrtle Beach. In addition, it also bears the distinction of being the first and only Grand Strand golf course designed by award-winning architect Arthur Hills.
Often called upon to redesign fine old venues for PGA and USGA events, Hills’ skillful use of mounding and strategic placement of water hazards transformed the venerable Pines course in 1993. He created PineHills, a modern masterpiece of beautifully contoured fairways and generous greens that delivers the best of the game to golfers of all levels. Its unique blend of superior Bermuda fairways and newly installed Sunday Bermuda grass greens provide a perfect playing surface. Also included are traditional architectural elements. Examples include rolling fairways, undulating greens, ubiquitous water hazards, and subtle elevation changes.
Two Great Onsite Layouts
From the back tees, low handicappers will find a challenge to their decision making more than their distance. From the forward markers, weekend, or vacationing golfers will enjoy a round that rewards a properly planned, well-hit shot. Though it measures out at just over 6,600 yards from the tips, PineHills gives out a stiff test of the sureness of your irons on almost every hole. There are no wide, generous landing areas that typify so many Myrtle Beach golf courses. From the tees, a 300-yard drive is often not as important as working your ball through a small window of opportunity to its optimum target.
For the golfer who enjoys the mental challenges of this grand game, PineHills is an excellent choice. The course requires you to use more of the clubs in your bag. From here, you’ll experience all of the obstacles that Hills has crafted. No matter how you choose to attack it though, PineHills is sure to send you and your partners to the clubhouse with plenty to discuss and debate.
