With all of the great Myrtle Beach golf courses as part of the Myrtle Beach’s Best golf package, there are a lot of great golf holes. From the 18th at Caledonia to the 15th at the Dye Course at Barefoot, the opportunities to experience them are plentiful – and one of the best holes on any golf course in this package, or anywhere along the Grand Strand golf scene, comes in the form of the par-five 9th hole at Prestwick Country Club.
The 9th hole measures 507 yards from the blue tees, and that is plenty of distance for any skilled player. This slight dogleg left wraps around the lake which also borders the par-four 18th hole. Ranked as the third-hardest hole on the golf course, the 9th gives the players all they can handle.
The left side of the hole is obviously trouble, but the right side hazards are plentiful here as well. With large mounds on one side of the cart path and out of bounds on the right side of it, keeping the ball in play is key. If you do find the fairway, you are left with the choice of laying up or going for the green in two. Players opting for the “risk” portion of this risk/reward scenario will have to avoid some of the deepest bunkers on the entire golf course – and the lake that borders the entire fairway and green.
If you lay up on this hole, make sure you leave yourself a good, comfortable number for you third shot. With a small bunker just short of the green, and steep runoffs on the front left and right side of the green, there is no room to miss. This green is one of the bigger ones on the golf course and slopes every direction possible. A par on this hole will make players very happy.
