Legends - Mooreland

Murrels Inlet, SC
TPC Myrtle Beach

Considered one of the greatest challenges on the East Coast – a par 72 triumph – Moorland was designed by noted golf architect P. B. Dye and opened for play in 1990. Large expanses of natural growth, sand, water and waste areas combine with extraordinary undulations and bulkheads to present a course reminiscent of the PGA West Stadium Course.

Legends - Heathland

Murrels Inlet, SC
TPC Myrtle Beach

The par 71 Heathland Course, designed by Tom Doak, is a return to the grand “Old Country” traditions of the game. It has been distinctly molded in the image of the British Isles links courses, with holes reminiscent of familiar links like St. Andrews, and lesser known gems like Lahinch and Cruden Bay. Most of the holes are without high vegetation, providing a visual presentation like no other course in the area.
