Played this course during my spring break. I enjoyed the layout and there were some challenging holes. However, pace of play was very slow at times and even after talking to the ranger, nothing changed. Maybe it was just crowded that day but overall it was a good course.

It was in similar condition to King's North, but not quite as well kept because it looks like it gets much more play. Greens not quite as quick. Traps had a different , firmer, darker type of sand. Much less trouble (water, sand, etc.) to get into.

A good course for higher handicappers. You'll get the feel of a high end, well manicured course without the forced carries and difficulties of the much, much, much more difficult King's North course on the same property.

Played all 3 MB Nat'l courses dozens of times over 20 years of going to Myrtle Beach. The west course was in excellent condition. Everything was in great shape. This course is wide open for the most part. The greens were excellent. Of the 4 courses I played this week this one was in the best shape. As it turns out this was the cheapest price that I played but it was in the best condition.

Bag Drop very busy with 3 course but enough people to move you thru. Counter staff not over friendly. Course was in excellent shape. Pace was fine on front nine but slowed down on back. Not a lot of trouble on the course but challenging enough for weekend golfers.

We have played this course each time we have visited Myrtle Beach. Course was in good condition. Good service. Women's tees are very fair. Carts now have GPS. Only drawback, GPS sometimes play ads that you cannot pause while player is taking their shot.

I was able to play Myrtle Beach National West Course on 07-20-13. The course was well maintained, the greens were quick, and the staff was friendly. I was in town on vacation and read other good reviews of this course so I decided to try it out. I was not disappointed.

The only down side was that we only saw the beverage cart girl on the first hole (naturally when we did not need anything). I realize that there are 3 courses at this complex, so you would think that they would have more than one beverage cart girl going around.

Overall, a very good experience though. Definitely a nice course for the money.

We were hoping for King's North at Myrtle Beach National, and when that course was unavailable we selected the West Course. Not much water in play throughout. Pine trees are the main barriers between holes and OOB.

Only downside for our day was aerated greens. Fairways and rough were in excellent condition. Would definitely recommend this course. I will be playing at Myrtle Beach National again!

Definitely a nice course for the price. Course wasn't too hard and that was from the blue tees. There are hardly any water hazard but sand bunkers almost around every green. Grass was maintained pretty well. Green speeds were about average, not super fast. Only thing that could be better would be the beverage cart make more frequent visits. With a heat index of 105 degrees on the morning we played, it would have been nice to get more to drink. Overall, would definitely come again and try the other courses there.

The course is well maintained. The fairways are wide enough to be fair and allows you to keep out of trouble. The fairway traps are thin, which makes it easy to get out of them, while the green side bunkers are somewhat "soft". Their are many doglegs, but you could hit 200-225 off the tee and be on the fairway. Greens in great shape and not too fast. Their are yardage markers every 25 yards, well marked and yardage to front, center and back of green. No GPS on the carts. Definitely a great value for the money, I paid $44, and I would play again.
