Splinter City Disc Golf Course grand opening
Horry County and the City of Myrtle Beach held the grand opening for the Splinter City Disc Golf Course, this morning. The 18-hole, par-58 course is across the street from Warbird Park off Farrow Parkway at 3383 Splinter City Street. It’s free to play, but you must bring your own discs. The county owns the land and prepared the course, while the city provided the equipment and signage.
The Myrtle Beach Disc Golf Club offered its expertise to bring the course to fruition. The course is named after part of the original Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. During World War II, a “splinter city” of wooden structures was hastily built on the site to serve the fledgling military base.
