Selected as the Best New Public Course of 1990 by Golf Digest, this Myrtle Beach marvel, at 7,078 yards from the tips, is a true test of golf skills complete with gorgeous views of the surrounding marshland.

Described by many as a "thinking-man's" course, this is a test that provides ample rewards in the form of upgraded shotmaking opportunities to players who take a risk and succeed. In addition, the multiple landing-area design allows for players of all levels to pick the best possible route to the hole.

One hole that plays almost equal for everyone is No. 3, a wonderful short par 3 that takes full advantage of the surrounding marshland.
