Another Gene Hamm gem is Azalea Sands. Opened in 1972, this course remains one of the only in the area with no homes on the course.
It’s for that reason that a round out here is so peaceful.
Even though the layout is fairly open, the course isn’t entirely there for the taking. Smalls greens are well-protected and closely mown runoffs make getting the ball up and down tricky.
If you’re thinking about playing multiple rounds in the Myrtle Beach area, be sure to inquire about the Myrtle Beach Golf Pass which gives you discounted green fees here as well as other facilities.
