Bill Satterfield's Take on TPC Myrtle Beach

What to Expect:  Adorned in memorabilia dedicated to local PGA star Dustin Johnson, the TPC Myrtle Beach course is designed with tournament play in mind. Laid out through mature trees with oodles of bunkers and water hazards coming into play, the course delivers a PGA Tour worthy challenge and facilities. You can fully expect to see an abundance of wildlife during your round at TPC Myrtle Beach, most commonly gray squirrels, wild turkeys, and alligators. I have limited exposure to the courses in South Carolina and Myrtle Beach, but with TPC’s current ranking outside the Top 10 in the state, I need to spend more time in the south because this course is really good!

    Played here on 12/27/15. It was not my favorite TPC layout that I’ve played, but in full transparency, I believe the conditions may have been mostly to blame for this opinion. The Myrtle Beach area had been plagued with heavy rain for the better part of a week before we played. The fairways had not been mown in I’m guessing a week because they couldn’t get a mower on them due to the extremely soggy fairways. So, not only did you not receive any roll off the tee (most plugged), but it was akin to hitting out of the rough because of the grass height. This made for a difficult second-shot day. One thing I feel like the superintendent could have done to neutralize this would be to move the tees up. That would have made for a better experience. However, we played some par 4s and 5s at distances greater than those reflected on the scorecard. The greens were very good. They were of medium speed and pretty grainy. I felt like the collection of par 3s were this track’s strength. Overall, the greens fees were very reasonable compared to others in the area. Paid $62 and juniors are free with paying adult, which is quite a deal.
