America's Most Awarded Golf Trail
One of the true hidden gems of golf lies 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach, SC and just over an hour north of Charleston. South Carolina’s historic Hammock Coast is one of the oldest vacation destinations in America, comprised of the townships of Murrells Inlet, Litchfield, Pawleys Island and Georgetown. Its bounty includes beautiful beaches, superb restaurants and shops, an outstanding selection of accommodations and some of the top-ranked golf courses in America, known collectively as The Waccamaw Golf Trail.
The Waccamaw Golf Trail features nearly a dozen award-winning courses, most built upon the sites of 18th and 19th century rice and indigo plantations, set amid ancient moss-draped oaks and gently flowing tidal rivers. Among the noted designers are Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Tom Fazio, Dan Maples and the late, great Mike Strantz. Included among the numerous accolades awarded the Waccamaw Golf Trail courses are GOLF Magazine’s “America’s Top 100”, Golf for Women’s “Top 25 in America”, six 4½ -Star courses and one of only three 5-Star courses in the Southeast as rated by Golf Digest. We invite you to explore the opportunities along this historic trail, where you’re sure to enjoy the journey.
