The Gem of the Grand Strand

The Waccamaw Golf Trail is no ordinary golf trail. Located about twenty minutes south of Myrtle Beach, along a narrow 20-mile swath of land bordered on one side by the scenic Waccamaw River and on the other by the Atlantic Ocean, the Waccamaw Golf Trail is home to an incredible collection of courses, including several of the top-ranked courses in America. Among them are three of “America’s Top 100 Public Courses,” one of Golf for Women’s “Top 30 in America,” seven 41/2-star courses and one of only three 5-star courses in the entire Southeastern United States. Most are built upon the former sites of plantations, situated either on or near the scenic Waccamaw River.

The incredible golf along the Waccamaw Trail is complemented by some of America’s most beautiful beaches, along with an incredible array of restaurants, unique shops and a vast selection of accommodations, ranging from oceanside hotels, condominiums and cottages to well-appointed fairway villas to the quaint bed-and- breakfast establishments in historic Georgetown and Pawleys Island.
