Staff was very friendly and met us at the car to deliver two carts and give us directions to where we needed to go. Rick in the pro shop was very accommodating when we had one person drop out due to illness. They are in the process of rebuilding a number of ladies tees, but that didn't inhibit the lady in our group. Only complaint was that the greens were slow and there was a lot of water still on the course(6 of the first 9 holes had standing water). I know there were two days of rain prior, but this isn't the first time I have played after days of rain. I would caution players if it had rained recently.

I have enjoyed playing this course in the past , but can't recommend it now . Wasn't informed before hand , that 9 holes were closed because of aeration. Tee boxes were in the 3" high grass fairways,while they were resodding the tee boxes. Fairway sprinklers were on the whole round. Took 5 hrs to play 18 holrs as a single. When I asked to cancel & get a refund before playing , I was told no refund because I booked it with GolfNow .

This is not elite golf. If you want that, pay three times as much and go to Barefoot Resort. But after six straight days of playing top-ranked courses and paying top dollar, this was a nice break for the last round of our vacation. The greens were in great shape; through the green needed a lot of work. Overall, a nice enough course, and well worth the money.

Greens were Top Dressed so putting was out. Traps need a bit more sand and tees are stressed from volume of play. Course is being upgraded with new tees and changes bring a positive look. After Top Dressing is rained in greens will be excellent and I would give this course a few weeks to mature and then would recommend it for play.

This golf course has a beautiful layout. Overall the course was in good condition and very playable. There are areas on the course being worked on, ( nothing that affected my play today, or that would affect playing here). Could be a fun challenge for anybody playing from the tee's suitable to their game. I also like the fact that it can test all aspects of my game from tee to green.. Definitely will be back.

We booked our trip with golf now and saved some money in doing so but when we go there we were told we needed to rent out another bag of clubs if we wanted to play. We forked out $20 for clubs I never even used because they said we weren't allowed to play out of one bag of clubs that we brought to the course. We told them all four of us had all ours clubs in one bag because we had drove from saint Louis Missouri to myrtle beach south Carolina and we didn't have room for all four bags so we put them in one bag. So overall the course wasn't too complicated. Pretty flat with hardly any water hazards or sand traps. The food there was overpriced and not very good at all. Gas station food is what I would call it. I don't think the staff appreciated the fact that we saved money by booking through golf now and we're looking for a reason to get more money out of us. But overall we all had a good day of golfing and that is what counted at the end of the day.

When we arrived there was a sign that we had to play the back 9 twice without a reasonable explanation. We later learned from a local that the front 9 gets closed all the time when it rains. We teed off VERY early and it was wet for the first 9 that we played. The greens were very slow and the course needed to be "cleaned" up. There was still trash from the day before, most bunkers not racked and a lot of debris from the storm out on the course. The staff was AWESOME, especially Rick. We enjoyed our round, the value was definitely there in the price. Rick lowered the price by $5 because we had to play the back 9 twice. I would go back with beginners or average golfers for a fun round. The layout was challenging at times. Keep the ball in the fairway and you will shoot an 80, like I did. Get it off the short grass and you're in trouble or behind trees. The final 3 holes (16,17,18) are fun, tough and meet their explanation on their ads. Thanks!

Play this course all the time. Not easy, it's a lot tougher than it appears. I'm a 14 handicap and have a hard time breaking 90. I can play more expensive courses in area and score better. The conditions are good year round and I really like the challenge. Great value, stay in play or pay!

The greens were just slit seeded and aerated within the last couple of weeks, so they didn't putt well at all and were puffy. Two holes had temp greens as they had been burnt. Also looked like a lot of irrigation was changed out recently. Pro shop said they hired a new superintendent recently. Tees and fairways were good, greens were pretty bad. I would say however that in a month all of the work they did will come around, so wait to play there until then. Layout was good, well maintained other than the above mentioned. I only paid $17 for the round, so it was worth it.

Good welcome, chap in pro shop apologised for cart path only and the course maintenance that was taking place meaning a couple of main greens not in play. Club already on a cart. Course quiet, a 2 ball a long way in front no-one behind. Some houses around the course but didn't interfere with play. An attractive course some water in play especially on the last three holes, the fairways had been sliced recently but give it a few days and they would be in good condition. I enjoyed my round here and would play the course again especially on a Hot Deal.

Starter was rude, pro shop staff nice. Course conditions were horrible. 3 or 4 bad temp greens and 3 greens had areas in the middle of the greens roped off they were so poor. Tee boxes and fairways were thin on grass. Do not waste your time or money playing there. The only thing good were the bunkers, great shape and nice sand with even depth.
