The Oldest Course in Myrtle Beach, Pine Lakes, Re-Opens

clubhouse-rear“The oldest golf course Myrtle Beach , Pine Lakes, reopened on March 14 after a two-year, $15 million renovation that included an overhaul of the course and the clubhouse. Craig Schreiner handled the course renovation and his work reinvigorated the venerable layout.”  “The Grandaddy” as it’s come to be known, has always been one of our favorite courses to include on our annual Myrtle trip.

It was originally built upon natural dunes less than a half mile from the ocean and but had started to become a little run down in the past years.  Designed by architect Robert White, the first president of the Professional Golf Association (PGA) of America and a co-founder of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, Pine Lakes shut down two years ago to begin the face lift and it’s now ready for play.  For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of playing this great course, be sure to put it on your list for your next Myrtle Beach golf trip.  During the on season, greens fees are around $120 including cart.  In the winter months the prices are much more reasonable.
