About Blackmoor Golf Club

Blackmoor Golf Club is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.

The Blackmoor Golf Course first opened for play in 1990. The course was designed by Gary Player.

This course was built on the historic Longwood Plantation, an antebellum rice plantation on Waccamaw River. The course features lakes, moss-draped oaks, pines, and cypress. Gary Player took advantage of the natural terrain and vistas with its undulations when designing this course. In 2001 Blackmoor Golf Course was named the Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year. In 2003 extensive renovations to the greens, bunkers, and clubhouse as well as tree removal were made.

Blackmoor is narrow in some areas and out of bounds, water hazards and trees can come into play. The best approach to scoring on this course is keeping your tee shots in play. If you consistently are in between the tree lines off the tee, then the golf course sets up very well for you. So lay back off the driver. Play for accuracy, and you will have a distinct advantage over everyone else in your group. Remember, the adage "the woods are full of big hitters!"

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,614 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 4,807 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 7, a par-5 that plays to 544 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 162 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 10, a 411 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Blackmoor Golf Club is # 2, a 182 yard par-3.

Gary Player has played and designed golf courses all around the world, but there's only one Gary Player Signature Course on the Grand Strand - Blackmoor Golf Club. Blackmoor Golf Club plays 6,614 yards from the back tees, with a course rating of 71.1 and a slope of 126. Blackmoor is also a favorite of female visitors to the Myrtle Beach area and plays 4,807 yards. Play from the yardage that best suits your game, and you're sure to have a good time.

This Gary Player signature course takes advantage of the natural terrain as well as beautiful vistas, producing a combination of shot varieties, which adds to your enjoyment no matter how good or bad you're playing. Marshes, wetlands and/or water come into play on about half the holes, and the green complexes are well protected with either sand or grass bunkers and swales. With all of the thought Player put into this course, he has made it challenging for low handicappers and enjoyable for high handicappers.

Easily the most memorable hole on the golf course is Number 8, a par 4 that plays 347 yards from the White tees %u2013 much shorter with Option B. %u201CA Tale of Two Fairways%u201D would be an appropriate name for this hole. The conventional, aka wider fairway, is to the left, making this a dogleg right. You can leave your driver in the bag with this route and hit a 3-wood or hybrid off the tee. That should leave a moderate chip shot into the green. Option B is for the gambler in you. Number 8 gives you an option to go directly at the green, up a narrow alleyway which plays about 270 yards. Be warned, hit it straight or pay the price. Either way, you end up at a gently undulating green protected by bunkers left - or behind the green - depending on your route. Executed correctly, Option B could help you pick up a shot on the field.

Even without the old slave cemetery that runs down the left side of this hole and dates back to the 1800's, Number 13 (478 yards from the White Tees) would still be a good hole. Add in the cemetery and good becomes memorable! Calling this a dogleg right doesn't do it justice; it's more like a 45 right turn. A long fade off the tee goes a long way in lessening the burden on your second shot, where, depending on your length off the tee, you'll have a decision to make. Anyone with a clear shot at the green needs to go for it; there's not a lot of trouble around the green other than a bunker on the right side and trees on the left if you're way off. The green slopes from back right to front left, so do your best to keep the ball below the hole.

Half of the holes at Blackmoor are doglegs and will require not only proper club selection but also good placement if you want to score well. Many greens are elevated and require you to fly it on the green as opposed to running it on. All of the greens roll fast and true.

Blackmoor also has an excellent practice area with a full-length driving range where you can hit every club in the bag to your heart%u2019s content and a putting green. The clubhouse features a well-stocked pro shop with all of your favorite logoed Blackmoor gear and a grill and bar that serves all of your favorite libations and clubhouse food. The burgers are unbelievable.

Not a bad course. No course Marshall, only saw drink cart once, and drinks were pricey. Only one hole that was really challenging, and fun to play, it has a split fairway, high risk, high reward. Too many other courses in the MB area.
