12 Feb Waccamaw Golf Trail: The top golf courses in the Waccamaw Neck
For Stonegate at Prince Creek residents who enjoy golf, you are literally surrounded by several championship courses. And among the 100-plus golf courses on the Grand Strand, you happen to be living at the head of the prestigious Waccamaw Golf Trail.
Featuring a dozen layouts in the Lowcountry section of the Grand Strand that runs from Murrells Inlet to Georgetown, the Waccamaw Golf Trail includes some of the top layouts in the area. In fact, three are listed in “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” and seven boast 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s list of “Best Places to Play in America.”
The trail starts within a 3-iron of Stonegate at TPC of Myrtle Beach, One of only three five-star rated courses in the Southeast. Home to the 2000 Senior Tour Championship, the TPC is joined by Blackmoor and Wachesaw Plantation East on the Trail. Both are built on former rice and indigo plantations on the banks of the scenic Waccamaw River.
Located farther south in Litchfield Beach is another group of Trail courses, including the famed River Club. Neighboring links include Litchfield Country Club, The Tradition Club and Willbrook Plantation – all featuring the natural beauty of the Lowcountry while presenting golfers with a true test of skill.
In Pawleys Island, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, the Heritage Club, True Blue Plantation and Wedgefield Plantation add four more classics to the Trail. Also built on former rice plantations, these courses are known for their history and Southern hospitality.
So put the Waccamaw Golf Trail on your to-do list and bring your A-game. You’re going to need it.
