South Carolina’s Waccamaw Golf Trail HOME TO SOME OF AMERICA’S BEST GOLF
The southern shores of the Myrtle Beach Grand Strand, from Murrells Inlet to Georgetown, are known locally as the Hammock Coast, a name derived from the locally hand-crafted Pawleys Island rope hammocks. But hammocks are not the only things swinging in this region. More and more golfers are swinging down to the Hammock Coast and the Waccamaw Golf Trail to savor the incredible collection of award-winning courses, including some of the top-ranked courses in America.
The Waccamaw Golf Trail features eleven exceptional courses.  Included among them are Blackmoor, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, Heritage Club, Litchfield Country Club, Pawleys Plantation, River Club, TPC Myrtle Beach, Tradition Club, True Blue Plantation, Wachesaw Plantation East, and Willbrook Plantation. Most were built upon the sites of 18th and 19th century rice and indigo plantations. Ancient moss-draped oaks, flowering azaleas, camellias and magnolias hug the fairways and the banks of the scenic tidal rivers, creating the backdrop for some of the most picturesque courses you’ll ever experience.
    The award-winning golf is complemented with outstanding restaurants and accommodations, so more and more golfers are opting for Waccamaw Trail stay-and-play packages. The selection of accommodations ranges from golf villas overlooking the fairways of Pawleys Plantation and True Blue Plantation, to the deluxe hotel suites and oceanfront condominiums at Litchfield Resort and Inlet Sports Lodge, to quaint beach houses and bed-n-breakfast establishments sprinkled throughout the region, including along the historic streets of one of America’s oldest waterfront towns.
Included among the region’s popular dining establishments are Frank’s and Frank’s Outback, Quigley’s Pint and Plate, Bistro 217, and many more along Murrells Inlet’s scenic Marshwalk, including Drunken Jack’s, Hot Fish Club and Wicked Tuna. There’s also a treasure trove of unique shops and restaurants at the Hammock Shops in Pawleys Island. Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington Beach State Park are among the region’s year-round natural attractions.
