Summer is in full swing, and that can only mean one thing. It’s time to start planning your next Myrtle Beach Golf Vacation. With over 100 golf courses engineered by the biggest names in the sport and tailored towards every playing level, Myrtle Beach is a golfer’s paradise. With so many amazing courses, however, it might be a little difficult to decide where your golf group might want to play first. No worries, the Myrtle Beach Golf Authority is here to make your decision a little easier with in-depth analyses of a few of Myrtle Beach’s premier courses.
This week we will be taking a look at Whispering Pines Golf Club. The most striking feature about this gorgeous, 6771-yard behemoth is its tranquility. Despite its proximity to the Myrtle Beach Airport and the Downtown Promenade, Whispering Pines maintains a peaceful, parkland atmosphere.
Whispering Pines Golf Club was designed in 1987 by the legendary trio of Finger, Dye and Spahn. The course was carved out of 200 acres of towering pines and mature hardwoods, giving the course its serene, forest-like feel. The architects incorporated the now rarely seen native landscape into their design to create an utterly unique experience that all golfers would love. Tree-lined fairways, carefully placed lakes and undulating greens add to the overall beauty and difficulty of the course. With a course rating of 70.9 and a 126 slope, this traditional parkland course is guaranteed to offer an incredibly satisfying round to golfers of all ages and handicaps at a reasonable rate.
In 1998, Whispering Pines was designated a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” by Audubon International for their commitment to environmental protection. Whispering Pines is the 3rd course in South Carolina and the only course in the Myrtle Beach area to earn this honor.
Whether Whispering Pines is the first stop of your Myrtle Beach golf vacation or your last stop before flying out, this is a must play course for any committed golfer. Book your tee time today when you include Whispering Pines Golf Club in your golf package with the Myrtle Beach Golf Authority.
Keep Calm and Golf On Carolina!
