Featured Course


Barefoot Resort - Norman Course

Greg Norman's newest design at Barefoot Resort is unique in many ways. With only 60 acres of mowable grass existing on all 18 holes, Greg uses stunning waste areas and the site's natural vegetation to frame each hole. The course resembles one found in the deserts of the southwest, without the desert. The course also features several holes along the scenic Intracoastal Waterway.

Course Review: TPC of Myrtle Beach

Tournament Players Club of Myrtle Beach

By Bob Washburn

 

            Everything about the TPC course at Pawleys Island is memorable.   Ample practice facilities greet you as you drive onto the property.  A massive driving range, putting green and bunker area accommodate practice for any part of your game. 

 

An attractive low country clubhouse houses a spacious grill and complete golf shop that has garnered national recognition.  Attentive staff greets you and gets you situated on a golf cart with a smile and encouragement.  Golf shop personnel anticipate your needs and offer solutions to any equipment or apparel need that you might have.  All of this sets the tone for a pleasant links experience. 

 

            TPC was designed by Tom Fazio, with input from touring pro Lanny Wadkins, to test touring professionals and give amateurs of all skills a sense of how professionals play the game.  Senior Tour Players contested the Tour Championship at TPC in 2000.  They teed it up at 6950 yards.  Tom Watson captured the championship that year. 

 

                        The course is sculpted from a forest and accented by strategically placed sand bunkers and natural marshes.  There arent many courses along the Grand Strand that feature as much elevation change as the TPC.  Fairways and landing areas welcome well struck balls.  The challenge of TPCs large greens is heightened by subtle and not so subtle slopes and valleys.  The greens were originally constructed with bent grass which demands more care in the warmer Southern temperatures.  Like many Grand Strand courses, TPC has redone the greens with Mine-Verde Ultra-dwarf Bermuda. 

 

Water comes into play on nine of the carefully crafted holes.  Three of the four par three holes require carries over water and the17th green has water on three sides.  Coincidentally, the 17th was chosen by the Sun News as one of the Grand Strands Dream 18.  Sugar-white sand fills  abundant and intimidating bunkers. 

 

Finishing holes on both nines are challenging.  Number Nine is a 472 yard test from the black tees.  Its a monster no matter which tees you play.  The landing area is flanked by 80-foot rough.  For golfers like me, the strategy is to play the par four like a par five and try to birdie.  The green is elevated and contoured.  A creek borders the right side of the landing area for the par five18th.  The creek crosses the fairway at about 200 yards from the green and empties into a lake that parallels the fairway to the green.  A good drive allows you to lay up and approach the green with a mid-iron.  Maintenance crews keep the course in tournament condition year round. 

 

The Myrtle Beach Golf Talk annual fall outing competed at TPC in last October.  I always enjoy teeing up on Number 12.  Its one of those holes I remember watching on television during the Tour Championship.  The pros played it from 333 yards.  Many of their drives reached the surface.  During our round in October one of the long knockers in our group foursome drove the green.

Playing the Tournament Players Club of Myrtle Beach was an experience Ill treasure and hope to repeat on my next trip to the Grand Strand.
