Myrtle Beach resorts have some of the best golf in the world. These are the picturesque links along the Atlantic Ocean - made famous by the Ryder Cup and the Worldcom Classic on the PGA Tour, and they attract golfers from all over the world.

The best part about Myrtle Beach is that most of the golf courses in the region are public all year, even resort courses. Thanks to this very open policy, Myrtle Beach and nearby areas like Charleston and Hilton Head Island see over a million golfing tourists hit their shores every year. These are courses designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Pete Dye, Tom Fazio and the infamous Robert Trent Jones.

To find more about a few of the best Myrtle Beach resorts that offer incredible golfing opportunities, read on.

Harbor Town Golf Club

Any list of South Carolina courses has to begin with this classic Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus collaboration. Bring plenty of golf balls and even more money for the near $200 green fee. Harbor Town is tight and tree-lined with water hazards guarding several of the fairways and tiny, bentgrass greens. Ocean breezes are always a factor too. Most of the resorts in the surrounding Hilton Head area offer golf packages that include this fantastic course.

Kiawah Island Resort and Golf Course

Pete Dye was given prime oceanfront land and told to build the toughest, most spectacular course he could to test the world's finest players at the 1991 Ryder Cup. He did exactly that. Half of the Ocean Course's holes butt up against the beach. The wind can be brutal and peril awaits every shot. But somehow, the course is great fun.

Golfers can stay at the beautiful Kiawah Island Resort that's connected to the course. Accommodations are luxurious, but also pricey, so be prepared. The resort is a bit further from Myrtle Beach than the other courses listed here, but it's definitely worth the travel time.

Pawleys Plantation

Built along wetlands in lightly populated Pawleys Island south of Myrtle Beach, Pawleys Plantation is far different than most resort courses. Originally a country club, Pawleys Plantation is somewhat secluded in a tranquil location dissected by a huge wetlands area that's part of a wildlife preserve.

Out of all the listed Myrtle beach resorts, Pawleys Plantation provides guests with the most traditional southern experience. Visitors are treated to historic architecture, southern hospitality and manners, and golf that's both challenging and away from the crowds.
