Myrtle Beach is America’s most popular golf destination, and courses like Crow Creek Golf Club are at the heart of the area’s success. It doesn’t garner the attention of the Grand Strand’s top 100 layouts, but it does deliver an outstanding round of golf and great value.
This Rick Robbins design is, arguably, the area’s most underrated course. The conditions are routinely outstanding and the layout, which stretches to more than 7,000 yards and has six sets of tees, has something for everyone.
Crow Creek underwent a bunker project in the summer of 2014, renovating every trap while installing new sand and drainage. It was the type of forward-looking project that has long made the course so popular with golfers.
Of course holes like the par 3 eighth attract players as well. Crow Creek’s signature hole, the eighth has a green fronted by a large pond, complete with cypress trees growing in the middle of it. The 193-yard hole is stunning visually and a treat to play.
Crow Creek doesn’t overwhelm players with difficulty, using more than 90 bunkers and water on nearly every hole to frame the course.
With it’s pristine bentgrass greens and creative design, Crow Creek needs to be on your must-play list.
