Legends Resort has long been one of the Myrtle Beach area’s most popular properties and hopefully you’ve played at the Scottish-inspired facility.
Moorland carries the reputation as being one of the most difficult courses in America and Heathland has been ranked among South Carolina’s top 20 layouts, so where does that leave the Parkland Course?
The easy answer is it should be near the top of your play list.
A traditionally designed course, Parkland is a 4-star layout that features tree-lined fairways and more than 100 bunkers, including several of the cavernous variety.
Parkland keeps golfers on their toes with varied challenges, including one of Myrtle Beach’s best short par 4s, the 311-yard ninth hole. Playing just 267 yards from the most commonly played tees (Green), the ninth is reachable, but the decision isn’t without risk.
Water looms on the right, OB on the left and a 20-foot bunker fronts the green. Everything from eagle to double bogey is possible, and that’s what makes the hole and Parkland so much fun.
The course challenges golfers but, most importantly, rewards them for good play, and that’s what lies at the heart of its appeal.
