Myrtle Beach's Farmstead Course

The 18th Hole at Farmstead is the 4th Longest Hole EVER built, measuring 767 yards.

Myrtle Beach has its share of tough holes, long holes,  scenic holes,  holes you wish you never played, and holes you want to forget.  The 18th hole at Farmstead Golf Links is a combination of all of these, being that it’s a daunting 767-yard par 6 that is ranked 4th in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “longest golf hole in the world”.

FUN FACT: The actual longest hole in the world is located in the United States as well.  A short trip up the coast will take you to Locust Grove, Virginia, where you will find Meadow Farms.   The 12th hole there from the Championship tees measures 841 yards.

Farmstead is unique already due to the fact that it is situated in two different states.  Eight of the golf holes are in South Carolina and 14 holes are in North Carolina.  You may ask how is this possible 8 and 14 do not add up to 18.  Simple, four of Farmstead’s golf holes start in one state and end in another.  One of which being the signature #18 par 6.   Each golfer will tee off in South Carolina as the fairway doglegs left around a large pond and the round will end hopefully with par or better in North Carolina.
