Beyond our Borders: Classic Golf Club Offers Myrtle Beach’s Best of the Best
Myrtle Beach’s Best of the Best
To say the Grand Strand of South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach has lots of great golf courses would, of course, be an understatement.
But Classic Golf Group is taking excellence to a new level. In business since 1986, Classic Golf Group arranges play at several of the area’s top rated courses, including the Founder’s Club at Pawley’s Island, which earned this year’s Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association Course of the Year honors.
“Classic Golf Group offers an exceptional experience on four award winning quality courses for a competitive price because of our commitment to the game, the product and to the customer,” says Sherri Crawford, director of marketing for the firm. “Our target audience varies based on the time of the year. Overall it consists of locals, hotel package play, walk-in guests and members at specific groups or courses.”
Other courses in the impressive Classic Golf Group portfolio include Indian Wells Golf Club, the 2004 winner of the MBGOA Course of the Year award, 2006 South Carolina Golf Course of the Year, Burning Ridge Golf Club, and Black Bear Golf Club, which has hosted major tournaments.
“Classic Golf Group would like to add new clubs in the future should the right opportunity arise and the golf industry has stabilized,” says Crawford.
The firm draws its clients from the Myrtle Beach area, all of South Carolina, North Carolina, New York, Canada, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Tennessee, Chicago, Atlanta and New Jersey.
The reason for Classic Golf Group’s success is really quite simple.
“We offer a quality product with excellent customer service at an affordable price,” says Crawford.
This year’s Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year, the Founder’s Club, is defined by waste bunkers that run alongside almost every fairway, providing visual contrast when set against the layout’s lush green fairways.
Classic Golf Group handles every aspect of a golf trip through its Classic Golf Getaways division. It also offers a Classic Player Card that entitles the holder to deep discounts and a free gift, and Classic Gift Certificates to any of the four courses.

A Great Golf Course at Woodloch
The Golf Course at Woodloch Springs isn’t overly long, 6,579 yards from the back tees, but it fits the true definition of a shot maker’s course. The holes on this eastern Pennsylvania gem meander past and over fern-carpeted forests, lush wetlands and broad upland meadows and there are a number of elevated tees and greens, all of which conspire to make for an aesthetically pleasing round. The course is one of the many amenities at Woodloch Pines Resort, nestled in the northeastern Poconos in Hawley, Pa.

Golf Amid the Mountains
Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, N.H. combines historic significance and Old World charm with sparkling new accommodations and modern amenities. The Resort is home to a completely refurbished and renovated Donald Ross-designed golf course that was lovingly given a new luster by renowned modern architect Brian Silva. The hotel’s 900-foot wraparound veranda was also restored and affords the perfect spot for guests to enjoy a cocktail while they gaze off into the mountains and valley.
