World Tour - Comment on this Course!

Comments (12)

We played this course 2 years ago and it was in much nicer condition the first time around then this year. It was a colder than normal winter this year so I am writing it off as just one of those things. It was in the worst shape of all the other courses in our package.

what an improvement
It had been 4 yrs since I last played the World Tour and how it has changed. The greens roll perfect and the fairways are amazing. It is still a gimmicky course with some beautiful holes. If you haven't played it you need to try it.

ok to good
Played Aug 2012
Has 3 nines but Championship 9[Amen Corner holes] was closed for renovations.
Open 9 was recently renovated and bunkers and greens were in good shape with greens being fast.
International 9 is apparently next up to be renovated. Bunkers were full of water, and greens were ragged and slow.
I liked the lay-outs of the holes, and the video screen graphics of the holes, but the drastic differences in green speeds and bunker water between the two nines took away from the experience.

World Tour Golf Links in Myrtle Beach, Interesting Facts
The Hole Truth

Celebrating a game popularized in the 15th century, World Tour Golf Links sports its own interesting history and facts.

1. To play the courses which inspired World Tour Golf Links, you’d have to travel nearly 20,000 miles, through six times zones and five different countries.

2. Of the courses that inspired World Tour, 16 are so exclusive that the average golfer would not be able to play them at any price.

3. Greens fees for just one round at each of the six public courses featured at World Tour would total more than $1,000 – not including airfare and lodging.

4. The circular drive outside World Tour’s 25,000 square foot antebellum clubhouse flies the flags of our six represented countries – Australia, Canada, England, Scotland, Spain and the United States – and 10 states: California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

5. Six different countries with four different languages (English, French, Scottish and Spanish) inspired the holes at World Tour.

6. Over one million cubic yards of dirt were moved to authentically recreate the features and hazards of the 27 holes included on the World Tour.

7. During initial research for World Tour, owner Mel Graham traveled thousands of miles to visit each hole on a 150-hole “short-list” of potential layouts.

8. There are more than 2,000 azaleas planted around the four holes inspired by Augusta National.

9. Of the U.S. states represented at World Tour, Florida is the top “repeat contributor”. Bayhill, Doral, Jupiter Hills, TPC Sawgrass, and Seminole all made the World Tour cut.

10. For “Most Holes Inspired by a Single Course”, the title goes to Augusta National. Augusta’s 11th, 12th, and 13th (the trio that comprises the legendary “Amen Corner”) are on the Championship Nine; #16 is on the Open Nine.

11. Outside the United States, the United Kingdom is home to the most World Tour-inspiring courses with Royal Troon and St. Andrews in Scotland and Wentworth in England.

How much during April?
I see it says lowest price so I'm assuming that is during the fall. I was wondering how much it cost w/cart to play during April?
