Detailed description

Arcadian Shores Golf Club At Myrtle Beach Hilton is a Resort 18 hole golf course located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Arcadian Shores combines the best of mother nature with the best of modern golf layout. This was the very first golf course designed by world-renowned golf architect Rees Jones. The course first opened for play in 1974.

Arcadian Shores was selected as one of the top 100 golf courses in the nation just three years after it opened. Lush bermuda grass greens, with 64 creatively-placed sand bunkers and natural lakes woven in and out of fairways, make this course a challenge. In a 1998 judging, organized by Myrtle Beach Sun News, 24 golf experts voted two holes, #2 and #13 into the Dream 18, a compilation of the best 18 holes on the beach.

Arcadian Shores is a "traditional" layout with natural blend of beauty and challenge. It features big lakes, deviously placed bunkers, tree-lined fairways, Bermuda greens and distinctive contouring. The course sits on leased land and the lease expired a couple of years ago, so the operator, Kingston Plantation, has only been performing token and cosmetic conditioning, which has resulted in bumpy and spotty greens, tired bunkering and overall poorer conditions.

Arcadian Shores Golf Club plays to a par-72. From the back tees the course measures 6,857 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,113 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 16, a par-5 that plays to 557 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 17, a par-3 that plays to 169 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 13, a 408 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Arcadian Shores Golf Club is # 7, a 361 yard par-4.
