Possum Trot Golf Club
Home to one of the top 3 golf practice facilities in Myrtle Beach and a world-class golf academy led by acclaimed PGA teaching professional Hugh Royer III, Possum Trot Golf Club is the ideal warm-up to any Grand Strand golf getaway. Play golf on spacious fairways, fantastic Par 5s and enjoy full-on access to the area’s most complete golf training center create a Myrtle Beach golf experience like no other.
Designed for the novice golfer up to the single digit handicapper, Possum Trot is particularly suited to diverse levels of play and lives up to its rating as “Friendliest Course on the Strand”. A traditional, straightforward design with tree-lined fairways, rolling terrain, ponds, fairways, and greenside bunkers flanking large undulating greens pose a wide range of skills challenges and shot opportunities.
Paying homage to its course title, each hole is uniquely named to provide additional enjoyment as you progress through your round. “Analysis is Paralysis”, “Little Possum” and “Big Possum”, and “T’aint Easy” are just a few that are sure to spark a bit of laughter, even if your game doesn’t. For the rest, strategy is crucial in deciding your layup and the approach over the water may have you gripping that club a bit tighter than usual.
Possum Trot’s finishing hole, #18 (a.k.a. “Oh, No”), is a great way to finish your round. This par 5 closes within view of the clubhouse and the fountain pond. Long hitters have to work against the prevailing ocean breeze, an uphill fairway and guardian water hazard water to get on in two.
Once you’ve played your last shot, visit the on site pro shop and restock on a number of essential items featuring the one-of-a-kind Possum Trot logo — a possum sporting a bag of golf clubs – and give your friends and family a whole new take on what it means to “play Possum”.
