|A Tom Fazio design, the TPC Myrtle Beach golf course hosted the end of season Senior Tour Championship in 2000. A decade later, the layout was upgraded when greens were replaced and greenside bunkers refurbished.|
TPC Myrtle Beach wasn't necessarily a memorable golf experience considering its a TPC course. There are so many options in this part of the country, which makes it hard for this one to stick out. Having said that, its still a nice track, probably a bit overpriced because of the TPC moniker. What stuck out for me on the course was the closing stretch. #16 is a par 4 with water early on up the right side and then tree lined thereafter. The green is also protected by bunker around the front. #17 is a par three protected by water on the right side (pretty hole). And finally #18 is a par 5 with a creek that runs up the right side (also a fun hole).
I'd play it again if I had the chance. A fun golf course that is also quite challenging. I would consider it just on the outside of the top tier courses in the area. The Barefoot resort probably offers a better value.
Nice course, lotta competition around the area though. Neat layout with some 200+ yard forced carries. Can be a problem if you don't hit that off the tee. Overall the greens and fairways are in decent condition. The price is a little steep however given the competition in the area. Would I play TPC again? Yes, but only if I didn't have to pay the full price.
