West Course at Myrtle Beach National
Rated 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” Guide, the Arnold Palmer/Francis Duane designed West Course at Myrtle Beach National is carved through secluded Carolina pines that provide golfers with the backdrop of nature. Its traditional layout and design offers wide fairways and large Mini Verde Bermuda grass greens that make for an enjoyable golf experience for players of all abilities.
With no housing in sight, the course includes open fairways and greens that, while open in front, are sloped heavily from back to front. All the par-4s play under 400 yards from the middle-back tees, and par-5s are all possible to reach in two, all playing under 500 yards.
The West Course finishes uniquely with a lengthy par-3 that features water running down the entire left-hand side. This is the only water feature on the course.
