    Probably anywhere but TPC. MBN, Wildwing, any Barefoot course should be pretty short from the lady tees.

    Barefoot courses are good, I'll second that. Though I would stay away from the Dye, that can get out of hand. The Byrd course at Sea Trail, just inside the NC border, has forward tees at 4600 yards. The Jones course at Sea Trail is 4900 yards, Norman and Fazio at Barefoot are about 4900; the Love course, unexpectedly, only drops to 5300 yards. TPC goes down to 5100 yards. Tidewater goes to 4600 and has really awesome views down on the waterway; partially obscured ocean views on a few holes.

    I believe Willbrook Plantation, down on Pawleys Island, has been recognized as a ladies friendly course.

    The Tradition Club in Pawleys Island has five sets of tees. The blues are just over 4000 yards. Many senior ladies use them.

    Thanks, Mitch. Great suggestion. I suspect the forward blues are meant for juniors. But, perfect for a sr lady. The Sr men's are 5,700 - which is nice for the 60+ crowd.

    If you’re looking at Pawleys Island Caledonia is always a nice choice. 4 sets of tees starting at 6526, 6121, 5710, and ladies at 4957.

    My wife and I have found that yardage off the tee isn't the biggest factor in playability. She doesn't enjoy courses with many forced carries, water hazards, or heavily-bunkered areas around the greens. It takes away the running up of her ball in case she doesn't happen to make great contact. We try to do a Google map search looking at green complexes for their difficulty before we book a course while on vacation...

    Most MB courses are short from the front tees, but there may be some that haven't thought about it.
    I think you should pick the courses that interest you, based on cost, location, scenic, etc, then look to see if the yardage are OK. MBN West, Beachwood, Sandpiper, Possum Trot, Crow Creek are fairly forgiving. The high end courses tend to have more water, bunkers, etc.
