Pawleys Plantation

Pawleys Plantation Golf Club

Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club is one of those courses you can play over and over again and never have the same shot twice; that’s what makes it such an enjoyable course. Jack would have it no other way.

Pawley’s Plantation is a championship, par 72 course that measures 7,031 yards from the back tees, yet the most memorable hole on the course is a mere 115 yards long (#13). More on that later. From the back tees, the course carries a course rating of 75.7 and slope of 148. Most golfers will find that the White/Egret Tees (6,184/72.0/139) will give them as much golf course as they can handle. Five sets of tee boxes give golfers of all levels of ability the chance to enjoy this Lowcountry classic.

Pawleys Plantation Golf Club features several tough holes, the most difficult being #2, a 461-yard, par 4, featuring out-of-bounds stakes lining the right side of its elevated, narrow fairway. This hole is a good challenge for even a scratch player. On the back 9, there are two distinct par 3s connected by an isthmus through the marsh. #13 is short playing 115 yards from the White tees to a small peninsula green and the #17 hole plays 150 yards over the marsh to a good sized green with a nice bail out area to the right.
