Fall Golf in Pawleys Island

Myrtle Beach / Pawleys Island area has been known as the “Golfer’s Mecca or Paradise” for many years. It has grown in fame to become the “Golf Capital of the World”. What helps make the golf courses in the area so famous?  There are over 100 courses throughout the Grand Strand, many designed by world- renowned architects. The mild, Mediterranean climate that Pawleys Island experiences with excellent turf management, combine to provide an area that sees more rounds of golf played each year than any other in the world.

Good turf management is one the main keys to the success of any golf course. In an area that sees high temperature, high amounts of salt water and high traffic makes finding the right species of grass to use on throughout the course is a must. Traditional bentgrasses have been used in Myrtle Beach / Pawleys Island until recently. Hybrid grasses have been made available that produce a wonderfully smooth green. Two that have become popular around the area are a hybrid Bermuda grass and SeaDwarf Paspalum, both are resistant to heat, tolerant of salt water and provide golfers with smooth play. These require less irrigation and fertilizer making the area courses more environmentally friendly.

Litchfield by the Sea is a great place to stay.  Great golf packages are available this fall.    Fall is a spectacular time to come and see for yourself the care and dedication that all the local managers give to their courses.
