The Town of Southport is ideally located for a golf vacation. Here golfers can stay closest to some of Myrtle Beach’s most requested courses. Courses such as Oyster Bay, Sea Trail, Panther’s Run, Heather Glenn and many more are within a fifteen minute drive. There are over 100 courses within a forty mile radius!
The golf course at the Bald Head Island Club is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful in the Southeast. The George Cobb-designed course winds through the forest, under the eye of Old Baldy, and out onto the dune ridge where a 180 view of the ocean greets you for the final holes.
The course was renovated by Tim Cate, and includes redesigned bunkers, expanded fairways and the widespread use of native plants in the landscaping. Can’t miss holes include Nos. 6 and 7, where Old Baldy watches over the course, and 16, a par three set high on the dune ridge with sweeping ocean views.
An on-site practice facility provides a space where golfers can warm up, and PGA professionals on staff can give lessons to youth and adults of all skill levels. A clubhouse that offers men’s and women’s golf apparel, golf equipment and shoes, as well as club fitting and regripping services, is open year-round. Club rentals are also available for a fee.
Golfers must have a temporary or full membership in the Bald Head Island Club or be the guest of a member to enjoy golf privileges.
