clearly a lack of $ and upkeep impacted this decent layout. Greens were terribly slow and bare in spots, tee boxes mostly bare & the course doesn't get watered anywhere close to what's needed - and there was no ranger to tell a group of guys to pick up the pace. (they seemed more interested in drinking beers at 11am, making lots of noise and then playing as a 6-8some the last 3-4 holes?)

the only thing that made it decent was the $19 GN hot deal - would not have been worth $25 unless you were desperate and a beginner

The greens and fairways were in terrible condition. There was no fairway to rough cut line. It was all intermediate height grass. There were dead grass patches throughout the 18 holes. The clubhouse was acceptable but old. I won't go back.

This was by far the worse maintained course I've ever played in SC. You could not tell the difference between fairway and rough grass. Weeds growing through the sand is a sure sign of a course that isn't maintained! Unless the owner spends money for some drastic updates and maintenance, this course should be closed.

The course was well worth the money. The hot deal made it even better. The only issue was that the greens were in poor shape. This may have been due to maintenance.

this course design was good but greens bumpy, many with bare spots...little to no yardage marker on the fairways, I got a great deal thru golf now but this course is just not well maintained. Lots of neglect. Would only play hear at reduced pricing

Greens were thin and brown in places very rough to putt. Cart paths were so bad it was hard to ride on them. Even though it was cheaper it wasn't worth playing. Would not go back

Worst course conditions that I have played in many years. Greens were bare, brown and bumpy. Fairways were weeds, not grass. Bunkers had grass growing in them. Had I known I would never had booked it. Not worth $20 little less the $38 plus that I paid. Will never go back. They have let the course go completely.

First time playing Carolina Shores. Nice enough course. The Pro was extremely welcoming and grouped me with a regular Friday men's group that were very nice. With so many great courses in the Myrtle Beach area, I may not make the 30-40 minute drive back to Carolina Shores to play again.
