Slip on your spikes and take in some of the best golf at the beach just minutes after hopping off the plane or stepping out of the car with a round at Arrowhead Country Club. Despite being located just five miles from Myrtle Beach International Airport and minutes from major highways leading into the city, these award-winning 27 holes feel a world away from the bright lights and busy streets.

Designed by the team of Tom Jackson and Raymond Floyd, each of the three nine-hole courses at Arrowhead features pristine conditions and unique layouts.

Although all 27 holes are spectacular, we’re here to give you an inside look at the par-4 5th Hole on The Waterway Course. This memorable par-4 is considered by many to be Arrowhead’s signature hole. With scenic tee-to-green views of the Intracoastal Waterway, it’s hard to be entirely focused on the challenges this hole presents.



Measuring just 407 yards from the tips and 297 from the forwards, distance is not the primary concern on this hole. You must focus on precision. Any wayward tee shot to the right or left and you may be leaving the 5th Hole a few more strokes over par.

Water is very much in play for any right-handed player with a case of the hooks. But the right side of the fairway isn’t entirely safe, either. Beware of the small pond (often unseen from certain parts of the fairway) guarding the right side of the green that will come into play on your approach shot. However, water isn’t the biggest concern on this hole.

Seven bunkers present an even greater challenge on this hole. Lining both sides of the fairway and guarding the green, it’s crucial to keep the ball in the short grass on this hole.

Precision is key on the 5th Hole at The Waterway Course, but don’t forget to take a moment to enjoy the scenic views. They’re some of the best at the beach.
