Everyone knows Myrtle Beach is crawling with golf courses. At last count there were over 100 to choose from. But let's be honest: Some of the Grand Strand's offerings are, to put it politely, grander than others. Barefoot Resort & Golf is a hidden gem.

Golf Digest decided to rank the Top 50 Courses of Myrtle Beach. Now, when booking a trip to Myrtle, you can be sure you're getting the best it has to offer.

These rankings are based on the opinions of the course-rating panelists, a group of 800-plus low-handicap golfers who produce, among other lists, rankings of America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses.

Note that often you can play for less if you buy your round as part of a package with lodging and breakfast included. Please check the accommodations part of this website for more information on packages.
