One devilish of a design from P.B. Dye, son of legendary golf course architect Pete Dye, the Legends Moorland Golf Course carries among its not inconsiderable list of honors Golf Digest’s selection as one of the “most diabolical” golf courses in the country.

That’s what golf digest says! Of course, that’s just one of many honors the course has been awarded since being named one of the magazine’s Top 10 new courses when opening in 1990. The course features plenty of water, sand, waste areas and large stretches of natural growth along with incredible undulations and Dye’s signature bulkheads.

Then there’s the par-4 16th known as “Hell’ Half Acre” for its extremely deep and unforgiving bunker area that fronts the green. Houses are virtually non-existent on the course as is noise from traffic, a rarity for Myrtle Beach golf courses. While Dye uses tall pines to outline wide, rolling fairways, those wide fairways are one of the few breaks he gives golfers.

And the challenge of this “target course” is also its beauty, leaving golfers to take chances and shots they might rarely get a chance to try, like blasting from a bunker on a steep hill or trying to pitch an approach shot over a crested green and then make it stop. Golfers can avail themselves of the impressive 42,000-square-foot clubhouse with a restaurant, snack bar and pro shop. An enormous putting green takes up a full acre of the course’s practice area of 36 acres
