In this case, beauty is in the eye of the beholder of the golf club, and there’s no shortage of lovely local links to choose from.  Your list might look very different, but that’s the beauty of ranking them. They’re all beautiful, so pick away:

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club

369 Caledonia Dr., Pawleys Island, Array 29585
from 728 reviews

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club in Pawleys Island is a jewel among jewels on the South Strand. Driving through the rows of towering live oak trees to the entrance to the plantation-style clubhouse, you know you’ve arrived someplace special. Then marvel at the salt marshes and lowcountry woodlands while you play 18 holes and one starts to wonder if they’re playing golf or taking a nature walk.

Located in the northern section of Myrtle Beach, this seaside course has history on its side. Opened in 1949 as the second oldest course on the Strand, The Dunes was built with old Southern charm in mind. The holes weave through a myriad of Lowcountry settings – the ocean, marshes and pine forests – giving golfers a real feel for local geography as well as a true test of golf.

Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus said he wanted to build this course so that it stood out in a crowd. Mission accomplished.

The marshes and live oaks that were there long before golf balls surround more than 7,000 yards of golf course.

The Pearl East & West Courses

from 117 reviews

Nothing’s more beautiful than a lovely set of twins, and that’s exactly what you get in the Pearl’s sister courses. Located just over the North Carolina border in Sunset Beach, the Pearl Course are built upon a former preserve of wetlands and salt marshes. The proximity to the ocean also allows for nice views of the beach and the courses also meander through maritime forests for a real feel of the Carolina Lowcountry experience.

River's Edge

2000 Arnold Palmer Dr., Shallotte, Array 28470
from 125 reviews

Two of the biggest names teamed up to make this course the spectacle that it is — Arnold Palmer and God, not necessarily in that order. It took God to make the beautiful landscape along the banks of the Shallotte River in southeast North Carolina, but it took Palmer to carve a wonderful course around the piece of land. With a combination of lowlands and river bluffs, this course is a looker from top to bottom.
