Pawleys Plantation's Jack Nicklaus-designed course has been named one of the best courses in South Carolina according to Golf Magazine's "first-ever" ranking of the best courses in each state. The rankings were determined by Golf Magazine's course-ranking panel, editorial staff, and "well traveled spies." The list appears in the September issue of Golf Magazine.

"We are proud to be on Golf Magazine's 'first ever' course listing by state," said Jann Walker, Director of Marketing at Pawleys Plantation. "Our staff has worked very hard to maintain Pawleys Plantation's reputation as one of the top courses in Myrtle Beach. So, it's especially exciting to be listed with prestigious courses like Kiawah's Ocean Course and Harbour Town as among the best in S.C."

As part of a five year plan, a significant investment has been made in all areas of the golf course to maintain the integrity, vision and character which has made this magnificent 18 hole layout by Jack Nicklaus one of the most awarded golf courses in South Carolina. "We are taking steps to ensure our Nicklaus Signature course maintains the status it has always had," said Jason Epstein, Director of Golf at Pawleys Plantation. "Pawleys Plantation delivers a round of golf that is sure to be memorable to golfers and where no attention to detail is overlooked."

"It is gratifying that all the hard work to keep Pawleys Plantation a top notch course has been recognized," said David Eure, CGCS, ValleyCrest Golf Course Maintenance Superintendent at Pawleys Plantation. "It has been a challenge to make the renovations without disturbing play. And, according to the feedback we have received, we have achieved our goal."
