The Colonial Charters 18-hole, par 71 course is a friendly Myrtle Beach golf course and a pleasure for golfers of any skill level to play. It will challenge you while providing a relaxing, picturesque wooded backdrop.
The course is sufficiently challenging for everyone, and success depends upon your club choices. It is short enough and challenging enough for women, juniors, seniors, and beginners. Test your accuracy with our fairways, water hazards and bunkers; we have everything you need to challenge you and improve your game. All in all, our goal is to provide you with a quality experience that includes exceptional service and a comfortable atmosphere.
A “shotmaker’s course with options,” you don’t have to play the course a certain way. All but two holes feature a water hazard – two of them feature greenside waterfalls – and there’s four forced carry, holes #9, 11, 16 and 17 on the back side. Long hitters also enjoy the course, especially the high risk-reward holes
TifDwarf Bermuda greens ensure smooth-rolling putts. We also feature a chipping and putting green, plus a driving range. PGA staff members, including a locally legendary trick-shot artist, are available for lessons.
The front nine and the back nine offer two different golf experiences. The main challenge on the front side is the presence of out-of-bounds houses, but it’s still very playable. On the back, you’ll encounter woodland pine trees, and there are virtually no houses until you get to hole #16.
Hole # 1 is known as one of the most challenging holes in on the course. “It’s an intimidating hole,” Chris says. “You look at it and think you can’t play it, and it psyches you out off the first tee box.” Chris explains, “A big, tree obscures most of the green, and there’s water down the left side, which ends and then starts up again. Trees and houses line the right side, and the tee box placement makes it look like there’s no fairway whatsoever, but there’s actually plenty of room out there.” He concludes, “I actually love it. I’ve par’d or birdied that hole.” His advice is to stay down the right side; hit your approach shot left of the tee.
