Welcome to Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club.
What a great example of a Nicklaus signature golf course in a secluded and protected natural setting in the Lowcountry of the southern tip of the Grand Strand.
Pawleys Plantation is a player's course. This course is a rare design where extraordinary beauty combines with his masterful architecture to deliver an exceptional golf experience. Wide green fairways lead to subtle greens guarded by natural hazards like the Pawleys Island salt marsh and the barrier island beyond.
Opened in 1988, the 18-hole regulation course plays to par 72 and ranges from 5029 to 7026 yards. Golfers say they loved the interesting mix of holes in two distinct natural settings. Starting slowly with a relatively easy par 5 of 511 yards (484 from the whites), the front 9 meanders in a westerly direction through hardwood and pine forests. The back 9 beginning at #12 winds east out around the salt marsh.
Pawleys Plantation has a quiet southern-style charm that continues a tradition established earlier on this site. The property was once used as a hunting and fishing preserve featuring a cozy lodge. The property also once encompassed a lumber plantation but all that has changed. Pawleys Plantation is on one of the most unspoiled tracts on the Grand Strand.
Make sure to make a tee time with Pawley’s Island Golf Course the next time you are visiting the Myrtle Beach area.
