About Farmstead Golf Links (Calabash, NC)

Once an old tobacco farm, the 480-acre Farmstead Golf Course in Calabash (north of Myrtle Beach) now offers some of coastal Carolina’s finest golf in an expansive and private natural setting. A links-style course, the course features rolling terrain, native grasses to define fairways, and superb TifEagle greens. Designed by Willard Byrd, the 72-par course measures 7,242 yards from the back tees.

With wide fairways, straight shots are a key to a low score but can be tricky with coastal winds making the course play differently from day to day. Water is incorporated into a number of the holes, many of which are surrounded by tall and thick marsh grass. Straddling the state line, golfers get the unique experience of playing back and forth from North to South Carolina. The course is also known for its monstrous par-6 18th hole measuring 767 yards.

Opened in 2001, the course is a sister course of sorts to the Meadowlands less than a mile away. Both were developed by W.J. McLamb, whose family had farmed the land until the 1990s and offers five sets of tees for playability for golfers of all skill levels. The course offers a pro shop, snack bar, lounge, range and putting greens.

This course gets added every year. Always in excellent condition with amazing greens. The only difference I noticed in our am round the grass on the fairways greens and tee boxes was a bit long. By the afternoon round it had all been taken care of. A must play.

Farmstead was in very good shape and pace of play was excellent! The greens were kind of slow but that is understandable with the heat and not being able to cut the greens too short.
