Golfers are always wanting to play the best courses for the best price. We always see rankings for the “Best Myrtle Beach Golf Courses”, “Top Myrtle Beach Golf Courses” but one list that you never see is the Worst Golf Courses in Myrtle Beach. Well, it’s time to change that. I did a blog back in the Summer of 2009, titled the Top 5 Worst Courses in Myrtle Beach. That blog was about my own ranking system. Since then, we have implemented a golfer voting system that allows golfers to vote for their favorite (and least favorite) courses on a 1-5 basis.
In this case, I know these courses get a lot of play, however, no one is voting for them. Does that mean they are bad golf courses? Nope! I have never played a bad golf course anywhere.
What I have played are golf courses with bad conditions.
However even when a golf course is in bad condition, your opponent is playing the same conditions. Remember, the ol saying goes, “A bad day at the course, is better than a Good Day at the office.”
The Top Worst Myrtle Beach Courses, aka. “The Weakest Links”
- Palmetto Greens – coming in as the 94th ranked golf course for Spring 2012 with a 1.80 out of a possible 5.0, leads them to the #1 position as the overall winner of the Worst Myrtle Beach course.
- Cypress Bay – Ranked as the 93rd course in Myrtle Beach, Cypress Bay has recently gone under renovations to the entire facility. There is a new day at Cypress Bay but it still ranks at the bottom of the list with a 2.07 out of a possible 5.0
- Island Green – Reopened under new management, the 92nd ranked worst course in Myrtle Beach will need to do a lot after the former Signature Golf Group closed the golf course in late 2011. 2.13 out of a possible 5.0
- Brierwood Golf Club – located over the state line in Shallotte, North Carolina, Brierwood is mostly played by locals just wanting to get out and hit it around. 2.33 out of a possible 5.0
- River Oaks – Im actually shocked to see River Oaks here in this position, the course has had major renovations. If you have not been out to River Oaks in a while it is a value course, that challenges the mid to high handicapper. 2.38 out of a possible 5.0
