Tee boxes - fairways and greens were all kept well. Fairways slightly lacking behind the greens and tees. A little wet at the time, but didn't effect play. Wide fairways to hit and forgive when not hit.

We were a group of four, first time in Myrtle Beach and we are average golfers. The staff went out of their way to help us. We enjoyed everything about the day. To us it was perfect, fairways were nice, greens gave us some thought....to a good golfer used to pristine conditions may not agree. But to a newer golfer...fantastic.

And again the staff was fantastic.

I have played Beachwood numerous times over the last year and have always found it to be in decent condition. This is why I was so surprised to find this course in terrible shape. The ruff was all dead grass, the fairways were ever so sparse and the greens were not well manicured. I know that this spring has made it challenging to get the grasses in good condition but if they want people to come back they should be upfront when someone books. If I had known I would of opted for another course until Beachwood was ready for play.

Great basic course, wide enough to be friendly to new golfers BUT we spent 3 hours playing the front nine because it was over booked. Disappointing for 1:20 in the afternoon. Edges of fairways still rather dormant, but that is pretty common for this time of year. Great place to warm up for the rest of the week.

After reading many reviews I thought I would give this course a try. I found that the course was in poor shape with no rough but just dirt, and the greens some wet and some patchy. I was sent off on the back nine which took more than 2 1/2 hours so I left. I have coming to MB For many years I would not play this course again.

The pace of play and conditions were disappointing to say the least. We had heard the course had improved from a couple years ago, not the case! The fairways are thin and Bermuda still was fully dormant and very thin. The greens were not consistent and loaded with poana. At times there were four groups on one hole with no ranger. We had a foursome in front of us sharing clubs and giving lessons.....not the thing to do on the course...

Good value here. Course lay out is forgiving and user friendly. Fairways and greens are OK but traps and area around greens need more work. Starter is efficient and helpful. Give it a try.

Interesting layout with tree lined fairways and long parallel waste bunkers. Water comes into play on a few holes but well placed shots are rewarded. Greens are very nice and are equal to those of $100+ courses that I have played recently.

Understand that it's early in the season and like many other courses they're trying with the course conditions, but it was rough. There were only a couple holes that stood out in my mind, the rest were ok. Got a good deal on GolfNow so it was ok for the price and gave us a chance to swing the club (came down from Canada). Unlikely I'll return given the other choices in the area.
