Burning Ridge first opened in 1980, when the Myrtle Beach area was emerging as a prominent golfing destination.

There are no parallel holes, creating the sense that you are alone on the course, and the layout and conditioning are always very good. The property has elevation changes that are unusual for a golf course, adding to its appeal to visit on a Myrtle Beach golf vacation. A four-star layout, according to Golf Digest, River Hills is the type of firm but fair challenge that enhances any Myrtle Beach golf trip.
With nearly as much sand as the nearby beach, Long Bay may tempt you to wear flip-flops. But stick to your spikes as you take on the challenging 10th, a par 4 with a fairway surrounded by waste bunker. Enough about the hazards – Long Bay also has some of the area’s fastest greens. Combine that with the fact that this is one of two courses in the Myrtle Beach area designed by Jack Nicklaus, and you’ve got more than enough to keep players returning year after year.
