This is a very nice course.This day it was cart path only.I was disappointed with that as in the afternoon it should have been carts on the course.I wish there was a way Golf Now could e mail us when this happens.Some of us can not do this but on a hot deal I don't think I can cancel. Let me know!!

Good layout set among trees and housing. Generouse landing areas. Fair layout for average golfer. Course still soft from rain 4 days ago so drainage not that good. Greens rolling quick and smooth.

Friendly staff. Nice clubhouse. The course meanders through a golf course community. Long rides between holes. Long, 6300 yds from whites, 130 slope. One of my favorites on the Grand Strand.

went on as a twosome and got bunched up with one player two groups ahead. ended up hooking up with another twosome and moved along at a better pace. rained the night before so it was cart path only which made for some long holes. course was in great shape not too wet. would go back for that price.

I have played many course in many countries to boot. For the money this was a steal. Sweet layout, a real test from 6900 yards. Don't think you'd be disappointed. Greens were as fast as I've played since Firestone in August.

Wife & I played 9 holes on an early afternoon tee-time and excellent GolfNow rate.

Pace of play was outstanding, as we started on the 10th hole and did not encounter any other golfers ahead of or behind us.

Cart path only due to very heavy rainfall the evening before. Despite the prior rain, the fairways & greens were dry and in great condition, and we encountered very little wetness.

Course was very user friendly for us high handicappers. Would definitely play again
