The course was well laid out, clear, but tricky in places. Greens were nice and smooth. Great day for an afternoon game. Visit Myrtle often and will make sure we play here again.

Myrtle beach. You expect all sorts of nonsense when booking. However, members driving up to the greens, without any indicators that they're allowed, double stacking tees when obviously you can't handle it. Just about an hour and forty five for the front. Almost 3 for the back. Would not recommend

Greens were in poor condition. Dead spots covered with a coloring to camouflage the issue. Would not play this course again.

The pace of play would have been okay if not for twosome behind us. We had to search for balls in rough. Wet conditions after much rain caused slow play. Some balls needed cleaning before hitting but course really looked nice! Greens putted well too!

Played in the late afternoon and pace of play was excellent. The course is in very good condition with well manicured tees and fairways. The greens where a bit on the slow side but that is expected this time of the year. Has a good range with a very friendly staff. The layout is very good with a really nice mix of different holes. Although located in a residential neighborhood. You barely see any houses and very little out of bounds comes into play although there are plenty of other hazards.

Played many courses around the Murrells Inlet area. First time at the East Plantation course. Conditions were pretty good. Greens rolled true. Slower than I expected but fair. Nice fairways and tee boxes. Layout made you think before you teed off. Staff was awesome from pro shop to the cart girl. Shot one of my lowest rounds so far this year. Cant wait to go back

Really enjoyed the course, the aminities, the staff and as the pace of play was fantastic.

Great, challenging layout from the Blues. Plenty of water placed in the correct places to challenge you without making it impossible to clear. Some long par 5's and really nice par 3's - including the 185 yard number 15.

Stepped up with my handy 6 iron (which, a few holes before had shanked into the woods!) so, you know I had a few thoughts running through my head. But, took a long breath, stepped up and put an excellent swing together - "well struck" I said to myself and my lovely wife who was riding along and sort of passively watching between turning pages on the kindle. She looked up only to see the ball coming down, straight on line and wondering why I was getting so excited. It landed just short of the pin and disappeared out of site from the tee box, so there was a few moments of hesitation while we rode up the the green. The elevated green from the cart path didn't make the view any easier, so I sent her up to look. Sure enough, it was in the hole, resting gently against the bottom of the pin! Success! An Ace on the 185 yard 15.

So, yes. I have a new favorite course!
