When the world-famous Gary Player designed Blackmoor Golf Club prior to its 1990 opening, even he couldn’t have seen how strong it would be midway through its third decade of operation. This Murrells Inlet golf course has remained one of the Grand Strand’s most player-friendly rounds. The design is one that stretches the imagination – almost begging for the untraditional at times. That has been packaged with a surface that can only be described as upper-echelon. It leaves those who set foot on this 18-hole masterpiece in awe of what they’ve just experienced.
Measuring at a maximum of 6,614 yards, this isn’t a grip-it-and-rip-it course. Then again, that’s not what Player had in mind. Doglegs are a part of nearly half of the holes, so proper club selection could be the biggest influence toward an impressive scorecard.
