While much of Myrtle Beach's golf courses have been designed by well-known golf professionals, and golf architects who have designed dozens or even hundreds of courses, there are some courses that are more personal and special because they are all the designer built and envisioned. Such is the case with H.M. Brazeal, a real estate developer in Myrtle Beach.
His course, designed along with Dan Naples, is Brick Landing Plantation Golf Club, located along the beautiful rising and falling mounds of the landscape, with a small saltwater marsh ringing the golf course. Views of the Atlantic Ocean can be seen through the trees, and the entire course runs along the Intracoastal Waterway to add a bit more viewing pleasure for golfers in the area. This course has proven to be a challenge for all levels of golfers since it opened in 1988 thanks to its unique layout and the effects that the wind and water seem to have on shots.
The greens are designed with Bermuda grass to produce true rolls on every put and in all the course runs for 6,788 yards with a 72.1 course rating. Often called "The Brick", this golf course is sometimes thought of as one of the finest in the area. Wildlife love this golf course as well thanks to how close it is situated to the salt water marshes that seem to be a home for all sorts of wildlife.
While there are plenty of courses designed by the legends of the game and of golf architecture, including Arnold Palmer, Robert Trent Jones, Fred Couples and Jack Nicklaus, there are courses like this one, tucked away among the giants that everyone should experience. It is a personal course that leaves presumptions at the door and allows golfers of all backgrounds to come out and enjoy a friendly game of golf on a championship course. H.M. Brazeal may not have designed any more Myrtle Beach golf courses, but he didn't have to since he hit the mark with this course and helped create a lasting masterpiece of golf architecture that golfers of all disciplines can enjoy for years to come.
