Aberdeen Country Club
Aberdeen Country Club Golf Course is a 27-hole Scottish links-style course. With par 36 on each nine, Aberdeen offers a combination of challenges to choose from, such as water hazards on 23 of the 27 holes. During peak season, this Myrtle Beach golf course keeps all three courses open.
Designed around the Aberdeen community by architect Tom Jackson, the three beautiful linked courses hug the Waccamaw riverfront preserve with only a minimal number of home sites in view, allowing players to enjoy the feel of classic golf in the Scottish tradition.
In keeping with a traditional Scottish links-style course, there are not as many trees outlining the courses as is usual on American golf courses. Instead, golfers have to deal with more bunkers and water hazards. Rolling hills along the side of the fairways and around the greens add to the beauty of Aberdeen’s courses. The nature preserve sports an abundance of wildlife, including turkeys, nesting osprey, bald eagles, and alligators.
In winter the tee boxes, fairways, and green surrounds are overseeded. The greens on this Myrtle Beach golf course are allowed to go dormant and are painted with a light application. Aberdeen’s special greens roller keeps the TifEagle Bermuda greens smooth and playable.
Behind the clubhouse, there is a large practice area which includes a sizable putting green with quite a few holes for putting practice, a full driving range, and a chipping green that features a sand trap for practicing getting out of trouble out on the course.
There are 4 sets of tees on each Aberdeen Country Club nine: Blue for Championship, White for Men’s Amateur, Gold for Seniors, and Red for Ladies.
During the peak season, all three courses are available.
