18 holes. Tree-lined & open parkland. Gently undulating terrain - easy to walk (although some long green-to-tee walks).
Woodland, marshland and residential.
3 miles SE of Calabash
Travelling north from Myrtle Beach on US Hwy 17 : just before the South Carolina / North Carolina border, you will meet the junction of Hwy 17 and route 179 (Beach Drive SW to Calabash). Take the 179 to Calabash. After approx 3 miles, at traffic lights, turn right onto 179 Business (Beach Drive SW). After 1.5 miles turn left into Shoreline Drive SW (still on the 179 Business). After o.5 miles turn left into Lake Shore Drive and follow road to golf clubhouse.
Oyster Bay Golf Links, stunningly located beside the Calabash River and its expansive marshlands, is a layout that exudes maturity and style at every turn.
Both nine-hole loops, typically presented in excellent condition, take you on an impressive tour that embraces several wooded holes, where tall pines and oaks line the fairways, and then out onto the broad, open vistas of the riverside and lakeside tracts. With all these water features around, staying out of them is the key challenge designer Dan Maples throws down for golfers of all abilities.
On the back-nine for example, he allows you to gather your wits on the tightish tree-lined par-4 11th and 12th holes, before launching you into a magnificent closing stretch, which includes many great holes, and much water. The fabulously bunkered short par-4 13th, with a good-size lake on its right, is an absolute gem. Water surrounds the island greens of the par-3 15th and "oyster shell" par-3 17th holes. The long par-4 16th in particular, is as tough as they come.
Generally good-width fairways, large, well-paced and seriously undulating greens, and quite deep, high-lipped bunkering all reinforce the quality and enjoyment that Oyster Bay holds in abundance for the visiting golfer.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
