Possum Trot is often referred to as the friendliest course in Myrtle Beach, but there is a lot more to the experience than great customer service and an unforgettable name.
The course opened in 1968 and Possum Trot is heavy on old-school charm. Housing is virtually nonexistent and the layout, with sweeping fairways and outstanding greens, will provide the opportunity to score.
The course has four sets of tees, including three between 5,153 and 6,343 yards, making it ideal for mid to high handicap men and women. If you are a low handicapper, don’t despair as Possum Trot stretches to 6,966 yards, providing a significant test for even the best of players.
Speaking of challenges, the 11th hole, known as the Big Possum, is the layout’s toughest. The hole plays 430 yards from the white tees, making it one of just two par 4s that exceed 400 yards from the white tees.
The signature hole is the par 3 13th, which plays 163 yards and requires a carry over a lake, one of the course’s few forced carries. It’s Possum Trot’s most photographed hole and a joy to play.
