Golf Course at Arcadian Shores Golf Club
One of the older courses in Myrtle Beach, Arcadian Shores combines 10 acres of natural lakes with tree-lined fairways and 64 bunkers. A par-72 and measuring just over 6800 yards off the tips, with a rating of 73.2 and slope of 137, it is a tough but fair challenge to all levels of golfer. Seven holes play alongside the lakes and experts from The Sun News voted holes #2 and #13 as part of the ‘Dream 18’ best holes on the beach.
The 13th has been named by the PGA as one of the best holes in South Carolina. Par-4 and 408-yards off the back tees. Starts with an up-and-down tee shot that hides an oversized pond in front of the green. Anything short and you are wet, and anything long will end up in a backside bunker.
