Shadowmoss is the epitome of a reliable neighborhood public track that caters to die-hard local golfers.

The clubhouse, while neither posh nor pretentious, offers all the amenities of a working man's country club. I arrived early for my 11:15 tee time and decided to get something to eat in the grill. I can safely say the $5.65 breakfast plate was the best breakfast I've had in a while.

The grill/bar area was alive and bustling every time I walked in. There was an energy that was infectious.

The practice range was a bit sketchy, almost as if it had been closed for repairs but people ignored it and hit out there anyway. The grass was knee-high in places and the yardage signs were leaning to one side or another. Very Stephen King-esque.

The course itself was pretty good. There were a few holes that seemed a bit awkward, but otherwise it was a pleasant round. The short par 4 finishing hole left me wanting something a bit more robust, as most players will hit iron off the tee to avoid the pond fronting the green. I must also say that many of the tee boxes had no grass, and in fact were unstable to the footing. I don't know if they were diseased or what happened, but they need to be completely re-sodded.

If I were a local I'd probably play this course frequently just to manage my budget, but it won't make my golf buddies trip list. It just doesn't have the quality or memorability.

I play at 'The Moss' every week. The course is fun, conditions are good for the amount of play and cost, the men's group is fun, the staff is welcoming and enjoyable, and competition is available for all levels. I consider the Moss my second home.

Course was in decent shape. Bunkers are inconsistent and greens were fair. The layout is mediocre and some holes are very narrow. Pace of play is typically slow. The range is in bad shape and the clubhouse needs to be renovated. There are much better courses in the area.

Fourth time on this course. Best conditions I have ever seen. Fairways best shape of any course in the Low Country I have played in last six weeks (of course I only play public courses) Only criticism is that the senior tees are a bit neglected compared to the regular tees. Fun day and good test of golf for a bogey golfer.

We have been to the Charleston area many times but never played Shadowmoss. This time we checked golfnow.com along with my son's recommendation, found this course, booked it, played it, and totally enjoyed it. We will definitely be returning and bringing friends since we only live in the North Myrtle Beach area and it's not a long trip. Lots of interesting holes, great conditions, great greens. We didn't eat there so I can't rate the food but everything else was excellent to us.

Made reservations for afternoon so we could play as twosome.That didn't happen.Didn't know which cart to take,so we took one that wasn't clean.When we came of number 9th hole there were no signs for tenth tee.Had to be careful not to get hit by range balls on tenth tee.Could not find ball on tenth fairway,to many range balls.Didn't want to slow play down searching for ball.Fairways were in pretty good shape.Greens are a little on the poor side.Sand traps were ok.Season is early.
