Have you ever wondered which Myrtle Beach golf course presents the biggest challenge to your personal game? Local golfers were asked this question and they answered. Barefoot Resort & Golf’s Dave Genevro, Seaside Golf Vacations’ Mark Rosenberg, Chase McGraw of Coastal Golfaway, Ryan Hart of Golf Tourism Solutions, and Scott Thrailkill of MyrtleBeachGolf.com each weigh in on the one area design that pushes their game to the limit.
This week’s question for the Play Golf Myrtle Beach Ambassadors is, which Grand Strand golf course is the most challenging to your personal game? My vote goes to The Dunes Golf & Beach Club, a wonderful design with great conditions all the time. And the challenge for me not playing much golf anymore is the greens, they’re firm and fast, and I have a tendency to quit going through the putts because of the speed. And I’m missing on the short side all the time, leading to three-putts during my round. Great course. Steve Hamilton and his staff, and the maintenance staff do a wonderful job on a daily basis. If you’ve never played the track, try it out. You won’t be disappointed.
Mark Rosenberg:The one that is most challenging for me is Prestwick Country Club. It requires me to hit a lot of long precision irons into those greens, and that’s not my strong suit. They could put the pins in some tricky positions because of the undulations, and the greens are fast. If you’re in Myrtle Beach, test your game at Prestwick Country Club. You won’t be disappointed. You’ll love it. See you here soon!
I’m a younger guy. I hit it a little ways and I can hit it somewhat straight, but definitely the hardest part for me is putting. And The Heritage Club, with their huge, huge greens, makes it very difficult. You can hit it on one front of the green and have a mile to the back of those greens, and I just end up three-putting a bunch. It’s a beautiful golf course, don’t get me wrong. And I actually love it. It’s been in my top 10 in Myrtle Beach. But for me personally, those greens make that golf course so difficult day in and day out, because they keep them in excellent condition, they’re super-fast with a lot of undulation. And it’s just, it is fun, but it is a tough golf course. So for me, I would say Heritage Club is probably the toughest for my game personally.
Well, I’m sure if you ask that question to a bunch of different people, you’ll get a bunch of different answers. But for me, it’s quick, it’s easy, it’s not really comparable to me: Pawleys Plantation. Outside of being one of the best courses in the area, for me it’s by far the toughest. It’schallenging off the tee in the fact that it has length. It’s extremely narrow, it’s one of the more narrow courses on the beach. It’s a Nicklaus design. The greens are extremely small. When you miss the green, after it being really small, it’s tough to get up and down. They’ve got deep bunkers. And it’s cool that the front nine and the back nine are completely different, because you get that inland look and feel on the front nine, then you go to the back nine, you’re out there on the marsh hitting balls on the island greens in the wind and stuff like that. So yeah, for me, the most challenging course along the Grand Strand is Pawleys Plantation.
Well, surprisingly enough, I’ve played all the hard ones: True Blue, Dunes Club. Yes, they give me my struggle. One surprising one is Willbrook Plantation Golf Club, located just a half a mile away from the resort. I don’t know what it is about the golf course: 18 beautiful holes, they’ve got bunkers, they’ve got water, they’ve got the nice mossy oak trees. But for some reason, personally, I just cannot get over this golf course. I can’t. I play so many good holes, but I’ve got to have my four or five bad ones that leave me coming back for more. So, play Willbrook Plantation, be surprised like I am, but hopefully, your scores are much better!

PAWLEYS ISLAND, SC
Picturesque Low Country Charm…. The true feel of the South.
Pawleys Island and its surrounding areas along the Grand Strand’s southern shores are well known for their Lowcountry charm, sweeping vistas of salt marshland, warm hospitality and seasonably warm weather for enjoying the outdoors on a year-round basis.
Founders Club at Pawleys Island contributes greatly to this region’s charm, with a rich local history going back more than five decades as one of the first four golf courses to come to life in the Myrtle Beach area.
As with most classic designs, Founders Club at Pawleys Island has evolve over the years, including a 2008 redesign and renovation by noted golf course architect Thomas Walker. His efforts brought back natural sandy areas throughout the course that are indigenous to the Southeast coastal region, helping to frame beautiful visuals against a dramatic backdrop of tall, long-leaf pines and centuries-old oaks.
Dramatic shadowing throughout this design is produced by strategic mounding amid the property’s natural setting, and it’s at its most notable during early-morning and late-afternoon rounds. Nowhere at Founders Club is this more evident than at Holes No. 14 and 15. The 14th plays as a dogleg right that produces a steady climb from the fairway to an elevated, narrow green protected by surrounding sandy waste area. The tee shot at No. 15 must steer clear of a long, encroaching finger bunker that longer players may try to carry for a short-iron approach to a small green.
Founders Club at Pawleys Island was touted by the Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association as its 2011 Golf Course of the Year, and provides a memorable coastal-feel playing experience. Come see it for yourself, in a short drive just 15 minutes south of Myrtle Beach in Pawleys Island, South Carolina!

Peter Alliss 1931 – 2020
Alliss was a commentator for the Masters Tournament that took place in Augusta, GA just last month. One of his most memorable moments was when he gave golf lessons to the former ‘James Bond’ Actor Sean Connery to prepare him for a scene he had to do in the movie ‘Goldfinger’, where Bond had to play golf against his enemy. Those lessons Connery had with Alliss created a lifelong love of playing golf for Sean Connery.
Peter Alliss first appeared on the golf scene as a child. At the tender age of 15, he joined his father on the course. In 1947 he turn professional. Then in 1961 began his commentator career. He spent more than 50 years broadcasting for the BBC. Peter Allis was inducted into the Golf Hall of Fame in 2012 and won more than 31 tournaments before he retired in 1975. He continued on to be the witty commentator he had become famous for today.
The Alliss family made a statement Sunday saying: “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of golfing and broadcast legend Peter Alliss.” They described his death as “unexpected but peaceful.” The family also said “Peter was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. The family asks for privacy at this difficult time.”
He once referred to himself as “The Cheaky Chap, who went where Angels feared to tread”.
Peter has now joined those Angels.
