Explore Waccamaw Golf Trail for Best Myrtle Beach Golf!

August 24, 2009


For special Myrtle Beach golf packages, follow along the Historic Waccamaw River as you enjoy a great round or two of golf along the Waccamaw Golf Trail!

Waccamaw, after the Waccamaw Indians is a name long familar to the Carolinas. The Waccamaw River (perhaps better known as the Intracoastal Waterway in that area) flows from North Carolina to Winyah Bay, in Georgetown, South Carolina and now instead of old rice fields and former plantations, the river meanders past some of the finest Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island Golf.

Wild life abounds along this river trail and you might sight an American Black Bear, a Pileated Woodpecker or two, Black Swallowtail Butterflies as well at other unusual flora and fauna. The area stands on its own, but you’re only 15 minutes from Myrtle Beach proper activities as well.

Unlike the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama, which offers golf courses strung out along many miles, this is a concentration of 12 great golf courses all within minutes of each other. Located on former rice plantations you’ll find this array of golf courses hard to beat. Golf awards are many among this group of golf courses. Golf Digest has issued “America’s Top 100 Public Courses to four of them. Willbrook is a favorite for the ladies and the list goes on.

Can you imagine access to three of the Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” list as well one of the only three 5 Star courses in the Southeast all within 15 minutes of each other? Don’t worry about traffic, convenience is what we’re talking about here.

Play TPC of Myrtle Beach, Blackmoor or Wachesaw Plantation East at the northern end of the trail in Murrells Inlet. Just a few miles south, you’ll find great Pawleys Island Golf, Litchfield, Tradition Golf and River Club, just 3 great golf courses in Litchfield area. Just a few miles beyond that you can play Caledonia, True Blue, Pawleys Plantation and the new Founder’s Club.

What a golfing experience…some of the best golf courses you may ever play! 

Beautiful Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, has enviable views of the old rice fields from it’s club house and sometimes the comments from the porch that overlooks the 18thhole will hassle you, but never doubt you are playing one of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses” as named by Golf Digest. It’s also considered one of the most beautiful courses in the area due to old plantings, a welcoming avenue of Oaks and other scenery. Built on the original site of “Waverly Plantation”, the grounds date back to 1750 and before the golf course was built in the mid ’90s was home to “Ducks Unlimited” and other fantastic parties. Doc Lachicotte & Wilson Springs, the founders of Caledonia can be spotted many times at the little “fish camp” just before you make the turn into the road leading to the clubhouse. True Blue Golf Course and sister to Caledonia was ranked in Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” in 2003.

We believe you’ll enjoy these golf courses more than most other courses you have played. Their proximinty adds to the fun. Or enjoy a golf-a-rama and play all Twelve! These golf courses are a glimpse into an unhurried life with beautiful surroundings, try them if you want to experience true Southern hospitality.
