Nice layout, beautiful setting. Tee boxes need attention. The course needs more irrigation. Otherwise, it was in good condition. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

For starters, I used to love this track, it was one of my favorites for many years.

First, I checked golf now and saw tee times available in the afternoon at Brunswick Plantation.

Let's start with the first exchange I had with one of the older gentleman (2 were working at the time). I called the pro shop to check on a local rate around 12 pm. I was told the rate and when I asked about booking a tee time in the afternoon I was told there were none available for the remainder of the day. The gentleman I spoke with was not friendly or accomodating and before I could question the validity of his tee sheet (since I saw available tee times on golf now) I was hung up on. I didn't call back and went ahead and booked a tee time I found available through golf now.

When I arrived and checked in I spoke with the gentleman I spoke with on the phone and explained to him I called, asked about a tee time, was told there were none available and was hung up on. I told him he was wrong about availablility since I booked a tee time right after speaking with him through golf now. He couldn't have cared less. He's probably pushing 75-80 and has the personality of a mothball. I then asked him why he misinformed me and his response was "there must have been a cancellation." I said, "There were at least 10 tee times to choose from so I can assure you the time i booked wasn't a cancellation." He didn't apologize or offer to accommodate my inconvenience. He just kept focused on the computer screen. He isn't a reflection on the entire staff though. We went into the restaurant and were greeted by two smiling faces. The two ladies working bar were awesome. Friendly, polite and quick! The food was solid too.

As for the course. The greens were fair, I've seen worse but have seen a lot better. The greens had some bad spots and were bumpy due to high play. The tee boxes and rough looked as if they hadn't been mowed in a week, not good at all. Fairways were good, didn't have a bad lie all day. Bunkers were raked but soft. Overall course conditions- 6 out of 10.

In summary, I would not recommend Brunswick Plantation. Ive played municipal courses in similar condition for half the price. As busy as they seemed to be, one would think they could afford to keep the course in better shape. It's the middle of April and the height golf season, is hate to see what it will look like mid summer. Go spend your money somewhere else, the pro shop staff didn't seem to want it anyway.

The day started out poorly with a very rude employee at the bag drop. Continuing into the clubhouse, the pro-shop employees were rude as well. The course itself offered some challenging holes, but the conditions of the course weren't great. Many of the greens needed some TLC.

Got a very good rate from Golf Now. The fairways were as expected for this time of year. Greens were a mixed bag -- had occasional non-bermuda tuft that would affect the roll of the putt. there is a fair amount of water, but the FW's are reasonably generous.

The course was not in good shape. Greens had very little grass on them making it like putting on glass. No grass no friction..

We were 10 minute s late getting briefed and getting sent to the first tee. Sand bunkers need more sand to be able to use a wedge and pick up the ball. No sand depth. Never going back

I've played 43 courses in the Myrtle Beach area since Dec 1 and by far these greens were the worst i've played on. They were terrible along with the fairways. Save your money and go elsewhere. Trust me you don't want to play here.

Azalea course the greens were a disaster. It was like putting on cement. 4 foot putts rolled 25 feet past the cup. I'm not that bad of a putter. Magnolia course fairways were dead, yellow. Greens were a little better though. Not recommended. First terrible course I've played in 5 years.

Course was in fine condition. Pace of play was almost 6 hours. We still had 2 holes to play and we were out there 5 and a half hours already. I think they should have someone moving people along. Waited on every shot.

Enjoyed the course totally. It was very windy I did not have my best game but I still cannot say anything negative. For March the conditions were better than I expected. The course has a very nice design and layout. Staff was very friendly. Greens were true and fast. I definitely recommend this track.
