Pawleys Plantation is ranked among some of the finest courses in the Carolinas. It has been named one of “”America’s Top Courses” by Zagat Survey” and it is among the top 30 of South Carolina’s more than 300 golf courses according to Golf World (2009, 2010) and Fodor’s Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play 4 STARS- 2006.”

This Jack Nicklaus Signature course is a classic Lowcountry design that you can play many times and never have the same shot twice. With subtle greens enveloped by sand bunkers, challenging fairways dotted with water and unique obstacles evident on every hole, this is a player’s course that demands strategy, ingenuity and above all, concentration. “You’ll have to think your way around this course,” Nicklaus advises. But the Golden Bear is quick to add, “as for beauty, on a scale from one to 10, it’s pretty close to a 10.”

    Overall, a pleasant experience. As a twosome, my playing partner and I flew around the first 9 in less than 90 minutes, which was great. As we approached the 10th tee, we were notified by the Player Assistant that we would have to wait on the 10th tee for two foursomes to tee off. It felt as though we were penalized for playing too fast, which is a rarity in the game of golf nowadays. I understand that tee times are to be respected, however I believe that common sense could have prevailed to know that a twosome could tee off and be out of the way of the two foursomes in less than five minutes and that it would not cause disruption to let us continue our round. As a result, we sat on the 10th tee for over 20 minutes which killed our momentum and rhythm and lead to a slower and worse playing performance on the second nine. We greatly enjoyed the front nine, but were irritated with our pace of play on the back.

    We have been vacationing here for a dozen years or so and try to play new courses each year. With so many courses, we have usually kept to the under $50 range, so Pawleys never quite fit. We got a pre-aeration $42 rate, so my Fathers Day was made. This course is all you can ask for. Staff is super. Course is challenging, but fair. The front nine will lull you into thinking you are having a good day, then the back nine will bring you back to earth. We had a beginner, a good player and then me (a good hacker) and all of us enjoyed the day. The beginner bought balls in the pro shop and was asked if he wanted quality or quantity, so a 24 pack of Noodles fit. As usual, playing a course for the first time will add strokes, so I recommend using an app or buying a yardage book. The recommended tee box comes with a 140 slope, but the next forward tees results in only 5,500 yards, OK for seniors and high handicaps, but too short for average play. Overall, very fun. We will play again, even if it costs a little more than our normal round.

    Good looking golf course, well taken care of and the back 9 gets tougher.
