Pine Lakes Country Club “The Granddaddy”
Pine Lakes was Myrtle Beach’s first golf course, opening in 1927. Originally known as Ocean Forest Country Club, the course survived the Great Depression and was renamed Pine Lakes in 1946, helping jump-start the area’s emergence into the game’s most popular destination.
The storied layout was designed by Robert White, a native of St. Andrews, Scotland and the first president of the PGA of America, and its integrity remains intact today, particularly on a back nine that plays along land featuring considerable undulation. Located less than ½-mile from the Atlantic Ocean, the par 70 plays in the shadow of the area’s beachfront skyline and tests golfers with an unforgettable collection of par 4s.
Complementing the on-course experience is the club’s rich history, highlighted by a clubhouse that is part of the National Registry of Historic Places. Pine Lakes was the birthplace of Sports Illustrated and the club is home to the Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame, adding to the fun of a day at the Granddaddy.
PIne Lakes underwent a comprehensive greens and bunker restoration project in 2021, an effort that assured its place near the top of the Myrtle Beach market for years to come. Pine Lakes is part of the Prime Times Founders Collection, joining 20 other courses that represent the best of what Myrtle Beach has to offer.
