Legends Resort is one of the area’s most popular destinations for golfers. This golf course community truly has it all, offering guests the ability to access any of the many on-site amenities, including a full-service clubhouse with pro shop, restaurant, and bar. Legends Golf Resort is within a 20-minute drive to the beach and all of the attractions and restaurants that Myrtle Beach has to offer.
When the favorite bumper sticker of a golf course designer is “My other car is a bulldozer,” you’re assured at least an interesting round of play. And in the case of The Moorlands course at Legends Golf & Resort in Myrtle Beach, it’s a devilishly interesting round. If a fellow golfer tells you to go to hell here, for instance, he’s likely referring to the par-4 16th hole known as Hell’s Half Acre.
Designed by P.B. Dye, youngest son of legendary golf architect Pete Dye, Moorland’s changing elevation and extreme undulations are a testament to the earthmoving genes that run in the Dye family. Rated by Golf Digest as one of the country’s toughest 50 courses, Moorland is one of five outstanding courses in the Legends Package, along with Heathland and Parkland in Myrtle Beach, Heritage Club in Pawleys Island and Oyster Bay just up the road in Sunset Beach, NC. And as a hint of the interesting play found on the other courses, it’s worth noting that the only out of bounds on Oyster Bay is a road on the 18th.
The Legends Golf & Resort offers a 36-acre practice facility with driving range and a 1¼-acre putting green. A massive 42,000-square-foot clubhouse inspired by Scottish castles offers all the amenities any golfer could want, including the Alisa Pub, named by Golf Digest as one of the Top 50 19th holes in the country. The Classic Swing Golf School is also regarded as one of the country’s best. The large Southern colonial clubhouse at Heritage is also particularly noteworthy for its beauty.
