MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (April 27, 2007) - Tom Fazio must have took some tranquilizers before designing Tournament Players Club Myrtle Beach
This golf course sure seems like it came from the mind of a much more relaxed than usual Fazio. It\'s almost leisurely in the way it plays out, invoking visions of sitting on an old Charleston veranda while sipping lemonade. It\'s easy to picture older golfers loving this trip through the pines, red oaks and marshes of the Lowcountry.
How often can you say that about a Tom Fazio golf course?
It\'s probably no coincidence that Senior, err Champions, Tour player Lanny Wadkins was the PGA consultant on TPC Myrtle Beach. Wadkins wasn\'t just some token name, either. He obviously championed the ever-flashing right blinker crowd.
TPC Myrtle Beach is a Fazio-modest 6,950 yards from the back black tees. It\'s also much more natural than most Fazio designs. The baron of the bulldozer in celebrity golf course architects moved a measly 300,000 cubic yards of dirt.
The result is a course that\'s much more flat than most Fazio designs - though it does have a host of elevated tees. TPC Myrtle Beach plays out on the ground, making the towering pines appear even taller. There\'s water on 10 of the 18 holes and a sense of nature on them all.
