The golf course is in very good condition with the tee grounds and fairways very well maintained. If you hit a good tee shot you will get a good lie. The greens are in perfect condition running true and with good pace for the middle of summer, Great front nine but the back nine starts with a par 5 then a 4 but being a par 70 six if the next seven holes are par 4 and it got a little monotonous. The two par fives are nice but hit the same club into three of the par 3's. Great clubhouse with excellent service. The is NO RANGE but with two practice greens.

Played Pine Lakes as our first round of a golf trip and enjoyed it very much. The course layout and conditioning were great. The 6,700 yard track was plenty long with the par 70 card. Our whole group found plenty of trouble when we mishit shots, but certainly nothing unfairly punishing. The greatest challenge was the consistently long par 4s and the few birdie opportunities, since there are only two par 5s. Overall, Pine Lakes is a great course worth giving a try.

Course is very wide open.. If you tend to spray off the tee box this is your course.. Not much to complain about in great condition.. We decided to play this as the opening course for our trip since it's very open..

With such a regal name I figured the course should be okay. It was more than OK. From tee to green it was in the best shape of any I played down here so far. The tee boxes were better than my carpet at home. There wasn't a bad lie in the fairway. The greens while quite slow(they leave them high to withstand the heat down here) were pristine also. A fair but challenging test of golf.On of the best I've played. Get out here.

This Course was originally just 9 holes, and really doesn't have the room for 18. I enjoyed this course simply for the history and it was refreshing to play a golf course located in the heart of the city. A few stand out holes that are still some of my favourites on the strand. But there is a lot of filler in between. As I remember this club had decent conditions although greens were on the slow side.

This course was in great shape and the layout was fun. The fairways were wide and the greens spacious. This course is a must play for anyone looking for a great day of golf at beach. The fairness and condition are the main reasons I enjoyed playing here.

Pine Lakes was a course that was always on my list of places to play while in Myrtle Beach on vacation...However, it is not what it used to be! The redesign of the course has removed some of what made Pine Lakes a must, the newly developed holes are not up to par with the old layout and the reorganization of the course is not as fun as I remember. Overall the course is still maintained well, but the removal of the cart paths is terrible especially with the amount of rain that Myrtle Beach gets in the summer. At times while I was playing I still got the feeling of the old Pine Lakes Country Club, but then it would quickly change the second I got to a hole that had been changed. I will return in play in a few years to see how it develops after the redesign, but for now it is off the trip list.

Beautiful golf course, with a nice clubhouse. The only problem is there's no driving range. The pace of play wasn't a problem, and we were a group of three. The guy at the pro shop also booked us a replay at another golf course at a great price. Very good staff.

My son and I played Pine Lakes on a recent trip to Myrtle Beach. We found the course in fantastic condition and a real joy to play. Fairways and greens were well maintained and clean. The staff and service was also fantastic. I appreciated the extra grace they provided me even though I was late to my tee time. Will play again.

I made the mistake of playing this course again on this trip to Myrtle Beach. Forgot I played it last time.<br/> Same ol issue here, lots of help at the club house and a beautiful course but no one on the course monitoring play. We played along quickly on the front nine but when we got to the back nine, the 2nd group in front of us was 3 holes behind.<br/> They had lost so many balls they were looking for balls in the grass and pulling them out of the lakes.<br/> Last time had same issue., plenty of friendly help at the club house wanting the tip for taking your bag and cleaning your clubs and a beautiful course but no one monitoring the course play.<br/> One other item, can't get into the course unless you drive to the north, when you can get the course right off of business 17 but they won't let you through the gate.

The greens were recently aerated with 3/4 inch long grass and sand all over. This was not listed on the website, nor did they tell me when I called to get a later tee time, nor for $77 did I expect to see that. My group was almost the only group out there, except for a guy by himself and another two-some. Six people total. We should have rainchecked and went somewhere else, because the course was unplayable. I cannot give an accurate review of the course because of the conditions.

By the 4th hole, there were 4 groups stacked at same hole. It was clear they put monies in the cash register ahead of the golf experience for the paying customers. Never saw a Marshall/Ranger trying to improve the pace. Nearly 6 hours for 18 holes. They need not worry about disappointing my group in the future. We won't play there again.
