I have a 18 handicap and found the course to be just right for my skill level. Not too long not too short with just enough difficulty.

Nice driving range and clubhouse. Close to the Grand Strand.

Good course that presents a good challenge. You will be penalized for errant shots but rewarded for good ones. A very fair course for those who hit the ball straight.

Have played this course in the past and was surprised how poor the conditions were this time. Greens and fairways were terrible. Certainly not the course of the year this time.

The tee shot is key here off the tee box. I played the black tee and it brought several hazards in play that otherwise would not have come into play. Greens were aerated on the bear but they rolled great. Love the layout . Give it another couple of weeks and the greens should be perfect. Otherwise I had a great time!

There were three 9 hole courses called the Fox/Otter/Bear. We played the Fox/Otter and simply enjoyed the course layout. We were dodging rain all week to play, but even after a hard downpour this course held up good enough to play. Would go again!

The course had a fun layout. The conditions were a little dry and greens were in rough shape in some spots. Overall it was a decent value at $35. Probably wouldn't play it if they charged more.
