With a special invite to play the Bald Head Island Club last week, the Bald Head Island experience is a special treat for a special few. Many golfers that visit the area have never even heard of this exclusive private club located in the Atlantic Ocean and about one hour north of North Myrtle Beach, SC. Accessible only by passenger ferry or private boat. With no cars allowed on the Island only golf carts, Bald Head Island preserves the natural beauty with 14 miles of pristine beaches, thousands of acres of protected salt marshes, and a spectacular expanse of maritime forest. Myrtle Beach golf at its best! These qualities make Bald Head Island a one-of-a-kind destination. With a slope rating of 137 from the men’s tees and 113 from the women’s, the George Cobb design which opened in 1974, wraps around freshwater lagoons, through a maritime forest with wild life of all kinds, and across dunes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The modern clubhouse and golf shop feature a variety of men’s and women’s apparel and equipment, swimming, tennis, and croquet are just a few of the amenities.
