The Oldest Golf Course in Myrtle Beach

Pine Lakes Country Club

After two years and a $15 million renovation to the course and the clubhouse, Pine Lakes Country Club reopened in March 2009.

Craig Schreiner was contracted to bring the "Granddaddy" of all Myrtle Beach golf courses back to the spirit of the 1920s. Schreiner preserved 16 of Pine Lakes’ original 18 holes. To make the turf more environmentally friendly, SeaDwarf Seashore Paspalum grass was planted.

The original course was designed by architect Robert White and opened in 1927. White was the first president of the PGA of America and co-founder of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. Pine Lakes golf course opened as a complement to Myrtle Beach’s first seaside resort, The Ocean Forest Hotel. Pine Lakes is on the National Registry of Historical Places.
