There are nearly 100 Myrtle Beach golf courses, and Farmstead Golf Links needs to be one of the them you play. Farmstead is best known for having one of America's few par 6s and playing across the North Carolina – South Carolina state line.
(Farmstead Facts to Impress Your Friends: The layout zigzags across the border four times on the back nine and 22 percent of the course is located in South Carolina!)
Make no mistake, the 767-yard 18th hole is a memorable finish, but it’s only part of what makes Farmstead so enjoyable. Whispy grasses line the fairways, providing contrast and a links style experience, and the tif-eagle greens are consistently among the best conditioned putting surfaces in the region.
Farmstead enjoys a quiet setting, meaning you rarely see other golfers, much less housing. The fifth and 12th holes are the course’s most photographed, particularly the par 3 12th, which features seven tee boxes and a carry across water.
Based on the combination of quality and value, Farmstead is tough to beat.
What You Will Remember: No one forgets the 18th, which Golf Digest ranked as one of America’s most fun holes to play, but beyond the par 6, Farmstead brings people back with the quality and creativity of its design.
