My next chance for the elusive hole-in-one will be in Myrtle Beach! Hey Rocky! Watch me pull and ace out of my sleeve!!

Looking at River Club, Pine Lakes, Arrowhead, & Wild Wing. All had good reviews, decent pricing, and are about 10 minutes from the place we're staying. Not renting a car this time, Lyft only! See how this goes..

Thought about just playing the same courses on the NGT schedule and give a preview! This sounds easier, don't feel like chasing all up and down the strand if I don't need to.

If your in the neighborhood next week and see a guy with magnificent facial hair yelling "FORE!!" I suggest ya'll duck your head...

Can't speak for all of those courses but River Club is great and Arrowhead is a top 5 in my Myrtle Beach book. Arrowhead is 27 holes and I'm pretty sure you can play the final 9 for free if there's availability.

One of the courses site said it was formerly a 27 and was converted to 18. Thought it was this one but I'll have to look again. Wild Wing is supposed to be nice, I know I've heard of it before. Don't know if I'll play all 4 depending on weather and how my body holds up.

All the courses for the NGT are south of MB in Pawleys Island so it really depends where you're staying. Lots of construction right now on the main drag so jumping all over for courses could be an adventure each day. You could easily spend close to an hour in travel going from one end to the other. Pine Lakes and Arrowhead are close to the center, Wild Wing is inland in Conway. River Club is at the South end of courses in Pawleys Island.

I was just clicking on the map tags, all of them were pretty much next door neighbors. I'll have to look again.

I wouldn’t know. I wasn’t consulted, therefore I am unable to attend.

At least Don will be there though...

I have played Pine Lakes, "The Grandfather Course", and really enjoyed it.

Do they still serve that low country chowder at a certain hole? Last time I played it was before they redid the course and it was fun then.

River Club is you biggest outlier. There's quite a bit of road construction between central MB and Pawleys Island. If you're staying at the North end near the SC/NC border you're looking at over an hour to get to River Club. Even of youre staying in central MB it will be about 40 mins to River Club, probably more after about 8-9am when traffic builds.

They do at Caledonia.

Yeah, is that one on the NGT list? I may have bookmarked it earlier when I was looking at that. I have played a few courses down that end before. Probably because we stayed at Litchfield both times. I did notice Wild Wing was a little farther out but wanted to play it anyway.

Probably switch out Myrtlewood for River Club. Also close by and decent reviews. River Oaks is super cheap but had a bunch of sketchy reviews, Whispering Pines is even closer but I'm sure you can hear the pines whispering as it's right up against the airports fence line.

Yes, River Club is on the NGT list. Myrtlewood-Palmetto course is a very nice choice and you are spot on with River Oaks and Whispering Pines.

I don't recall that. I played a few months after the renovation and it was in really good shape.

Do they call it that or is it a local nickname?

I believe they call and market it as "The Gandddaddy", the original Myrtle Beach course.
