This week, we’re taking a look at the legendary Oyster Bay Golf Links.
Situated just a short drive north of Myrtle Beach, in the idyllic seaside town of Sunset Beach, NC, Oyster Bay Golf Links is a breathtaking, 18-hole links-style golf course. Since 1983, Oyster Bay has been a fixture of the Grand Strand golf community for nearly three decades. Throughout its illustrious history, Oyster Bay Golf Links has received an almost endless litany of accolades and awards—starting the year it opened, when it was named Golf Digest’s “Resort Course of the Year.” Today, this Par 70 gem remains a favorite among both visitors and locals alike.
Oyster Bay Golf Links is a rare, harmonious blend of penal, heroic, and strategic architecture. Built as a collaboration between renowned course architect—Dan Maples and course developer—Larry Young, this award-winning Myrtle Beach incorporates a myriad of coastal landscapes into its design. Holes are set like gems in a crown along beautiful saltwater marshes, pristine freshwater lakes, and picturesque lagoons.
Variety and innovation is the name of the game at this low country jewel. Cavernous bunkers, wickedly undulating greens, and lengthy par 4’s make this course the ultimate test of any golfer’s mettle. The course’s two most iconic holes—#15 and #17—feature treacherous island greens that threaten to swallow up any errant shot. This course is the consummate combination of shot making requirements: guaranteed to keep you and your golf group on your toes.
In addition to immaculately manicured grounds, Oyster Bay Golf Links also boasts a 30 tee driving range and fully stocked pro-shop. Their friendly and knowledgeable full-time staff are always ready to help make every golfer’s experience at Oyster Bay, a pleasurable one. Trust us; this is a must-play course!
