Burning Ridge Golf Club
Designed by Gene Hamm, the Burning Ridge 18-hole, par 72 course is what was formerly known as the East Course when the club opened as a 36-hole Myrtle Beach golf course in 1980. When the West course was closed in 2005 for for residential housing development, the East course went through extensive renovations making the course much more playable while remaining “challenging.”
Now, over 6700 yards from the tips, the course features elegantly mounded, pine tree-lined fairways. There are quite a few water hazards on the course but most of the water is lateral, with only a few forced carries. On the back side, you’ll probably face two forced carries, #12 and #17, to peninsula-type greens. Those are also among the most picturesque postcard-worthy holes on the course.
All of their greens are elevated and subtly challenging. Burning Ridge is also known as a woman-friendly course. The women’s tees were carefully placed to provide a fair challenge to the course’s extensive women membership and numerous ladies groups.
Burning Ridge’s popular all-grass practice facility includes a large putting green and a separate pitching and chipping area with a practice bunker, and a three-tier tee box out on the practice range.
