Arrowhead Country Club
World Golf Hall of Famer Raymond Floyd and course architect Tom Jackson teamed up to create this 27-hole gem, located near the heart of Myrtle Beach. Each of the three nines – Cypress, Lakes and Waterway -- has it’s own personality taking a lot of its character from what nature provided.
Although each nine is different and no two holes are the same, each of the three course shares one distinct characteristic. It’s a shot makers delight. Arrowhead Country Club is well bunkered and water comes into play on more than 20 of the 27 holes. Thankfully, the course is void of difficult forced carries. Doglegs are prevalent throughout the course and there’s an abundance of elevated tees. Visually very appealing, the course wanders through a developed neighborhood, but the homes never come into play.
The layout is not particularly long, allowing the average handicapper an opportunity to hit some greens in regulation. The Lakes/Waterway combination plays to 6612 yards from the Blue tees with a Rating/Slope of 71.6/140. The White tees are a reasonable 6379 yards and 69.4/140. The Green Tees measure 5560 yards at 66.7/114. The Red tees are very lady friendly at 4698 yards and 67.8/117. The Cypress/Waterway combination has a similar Rating/Slope and plays 6640 yards from the Blues, 6183 from the Whites, and 5559 from the Greens and 4624 from the Red tees.
Arrowhead is situated fairly close to the Myrtle Beach International Airport, so a lot of golfers like to make it the first and/or final round of their visit.
