Carolina Forest is a 9,000-acre community located between Myrtle Beach and Conway, S.C. Carolina Forest points with pride to its community high school, middle school and elementary school. Carolina Forest Elementary School opened in 1996, with the middle and high schools opening on the same campus two years later.

Waccamaw Elementary School and Palmetto Elementary School were later added to the Carolina Forest attendance area, a testament to the growth of this popular area. But Carolina Forest is more than outstanding schools.

Located just 10 miles from beautiful South Carolina beaches, this community boasts shopping, banks, churches, a U.S. Post Office, public golf course, a new Horry County Fire Station, and much more, all surrounded by the natural beauty that has been so diligently preserved.

Allen Moore and others at International Paper Company Realty nurtured the community master plan for more than 30 years before construction actually began. This area is “not a subdivision, but a township,” says the bulk marketing manager, Sumter L. Langston of Leonard Call & Associates. Until the 1990s, Carolina Forest was the exclusive home of bears, snakes, deer, Venus flytraps and Carolina bays and waterways. Just over a decade ago, IP Realty began selling blocks of land to developers and builders, a move that resulted in a mixture of home styles — something for just about everyone. But it remains, above all, a community where hundreds of acres of parks crisscrossed with hiking trails and the preservation of the environment continue paramount to the lifestyle.

By and large, the individual neighborhoods in Carolina Forest are designed for specific financial needs, family sizes and appropriate geography and landscaping. Each builder/developer has its own sales office and model on-site, but some real estate firms have set up businesses that advertise sales in more than one — and maybe several — Carolina Forest neighborhoods.

For those who love golf, you’re in luck at Carolina Forest. Man O’ War Golf Club plays over, above, through and around an attractive 100-acre lake. The lake features many islands, finger lagoons, inlets and tributaries, all lending to the challenge of the course. From the clubhouse, which is built on pilings over the water, there are pleasant views directly across the lake to The Wizard, one of Man O’ War’s sister courses. The third course in the Carolina Forest trio is The Witch. World-renowned architect, Dan Maples, designed all three courses.

For families that crave convenience, Carolina Forest fits the bill. At the south end of the community, commercial areas are already up and running to support the growing population. At the north end, land is being cleared for a new retail center called Towne Centre. Carolina Forest may even build its own hospital to make it more self-contained. In other words, a new city, albeit, an unincorporated one, has been created, and it is well on the way to taking its place among other carefully planned communities like Columbia, Md.
