The Legends Golf Resorts' Parkland Course in Myrtle Beach was built alongside its elder brother courses, the famed Heathland and Moorland, but it has quickly gained its own lofty reputation and is noted as the most exciting new golf course in Myrtle Beach.
Parkland quickly formed its own identity as one of the top layouts in Myrtle Beach, challenging golfers with narrow, pine-lined fairways, natural water hazards and gaping green-side bunkers. Parkland has also earned the award of 4.5 stars from Golf Digest.
Designed after the creative stylings of architects Alister MacKenzie (Augusta National) and George Thomas (Riviera Country Club), Parkland has become a popular, must-play among both visitors and locals.
Offering distinct contrasts to the first two Legends courses, Parkland demonstrates the diversity and beauty of the natural terrain with contoured, tree-lined fairways, vast natural areas, deep-faced bunkers and massive, multi-level greens and Tifeagle Bermuda grass.

One of Parkland's most striking features is the way the undulating course contours to the natural Lowcountry surroundings of forest and wetlands.
The signature hole is # 9 that always brings the best golfers a new challenge. The best advice from the pros is to play the appropriate tees and keep it in the center! They also suggest learning to hit the long irons and fairway woods more effectively so it will give you a greater chance of getting on the greens for a lower score.
