When golfers think of the traditional and classic golf courses in Myrtle Beach they have to think Arcadian Shores. Opened in 1974 Arcadian is the first golf course designed by legendary course designer and architect Rees Jones. Stretching out to just over 6800 yards from the back tees with a rating of 73.2 and a slope of 137, Arcadian Shores Golf can give low handicappers all the challenge they could want from a golf course. But from the appropriate tee boxes, this low country beauty offers golfers of all ages and skill levels a great combination of challenge and fun.
The uniquely contoured fairways and green complexes hold the classic look even still today. With an abundance of live oaks and well-placed lakes, Arcadian Shores has a personality all its own. Located in the heart of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, it is a quick drive from anywhere along the Grand Strand. The convenience of location makes this course a regular choice for visiting golfers as well as a local’s favorite.
The installation of new Sunday Ultradwarf Bermuda greens highlights what players have to look forward as they come to Arcadian Shores. Bunkers have been re-faced, cart paths have been re-built and trees have been removed all around the golf course. It is almost as if Arcadian Shores is a brand new golf course. It certainly is a must-play golf course for first-timers as well as golfers coming back to be re-introduced to this classic layout.
In addition to the on-course improvements a brand new clubhouse was built and it provides a wonderful greeting to golfers as they arrive to the property. Much bigger than its predecessor, this clubhouse features a large dining area complete with flat-screen TVs and full-service bar and grill. The best part of the new building is the back porch. Overlooking both the driving range and the 18th green the porch gives golfers a great place to hang out after a round and enjoy food and drink from the grill and take in an amazing atmosphere.
