    Love the write-up! Beachwood is indeed a hidden gem. Question ā€“ Iā€™m an intermediate player myself. Would you recommend starting off from the longest tees for a first-time player at Beachwood or should I stick to closer tees?

    1. Hey, there’s no harm in trying the longest tees but it could provide a bit more challenge. Maybe play a round from the closer tees first to get a feel of the course? Either way, enjoy your game!

  3. My wife and I have a tradition of visiting Myrtle Beach every summer, and Beachwood is always on our itinerary! From the immaculate condition of the course to the friendly faces in the Pro Shop, it truly is a treat every year. Besides, any place where I can birdie and spot a turtle in the same round is a winner for me!

    1. Sounds like a delightful tradition! The sights of nature at Beachwood are indeed a joy. Here’s to many more birdies and turtle sightings.

    I had the chance to play at Beachwood last year during a golf tourney ā€“ what a fantastic course! But I gotta say, that 18th hole ā€“ it got the best of me. I guess I need to work on my water shots. Looking forward to the rematch though! ?

    1. You’re right, that 18th hole is certainly a challenge. I find it’s all about the club selection and confidence. Give it your best swing next time, you’ll conquer it for sure! ?
