Designed by 18-time major champion Jack Nicklaus, Pawleys is one of the most attractive and best public courses in all of South Carolina. Lined with trees and majestic lakes, the front 9 holds its own in both scenery and challenges; however, it’s the closing stretch that attracts attention. The majority of the back 9 is woven within natural waterways and vast, open views. The course’s iconic 13th hole plays to a peninsula green that is exposed to a salt marsh and the wind off the nearby Atlantic Ocean. It’s a challenge golfers don’t forget.
