Larry Young has been called the mogul of Myrtle Beach for his developments, but he is also known as a golf architect who has created two of the best courses that Myrtle Beach has to offer. Larry Young founded Legends, Golf Trust of America Inc. which helped to build seven golf courses. Two of those courses are Heritage Club and Legends: Parkland in Myrtle Beach.
Heritage Club, which is a part of Heritage Plantation, is one of the finest golfing communities in the entire world. With a colonial clubhouse, views of the Waccamaw River, giant magnolias and centuries-old oaks, the course has been picked as one of the 50 best public courses in America by Golf Digest. Featuring wildflowers, beautiful shrubs and rolling fairways, this is a course to remember for many golfers who come out to Myrtle Beach. The course currently holds a ranking of four and a half stars from Golf Digest, making it one of only five courses in Myrtle Beach to have that designation. Built in 1986, it is a 7,040 yard course with a slope rating of 142.
The second of Young's courses in Myrtle Beach is Legends: Parkland, which is part of the Legends Trilogy of golf courses along with Heathland and Moorhead. It is one of the most beautiful golf courses in Myrtle Beach and a place that every golfer should check out if they are in the area. Designed with tree-lined fairways, deep bunkers and multi-level greens, strategy is what golfers need when they attempt to conquer this golf course. The course was opened in October of 1992 and was styled in the same method that golf architects Alister MacKenzie and George Thomas used with Augusta National and Riviera country Club. It has a challenging fairways that will test the best of golfers over the course of the par-72 playing field.
The Mogul of Myrtle Beach, Larry Young, has helped to create two legendary Myrtle Beach golf courses. These are two courses that are masterpieces of golf architecture and both are not for the faint of heart in golf. Those who play these courses know the game of golf and know exactly how to use strategy to win a round.
