Played this on the last day very cheaply and at the very last minute when I wasn't sure the weather was going to get warm enough to play. It's not much of a course, so I wouldn't recommend it. Very easy and boring front 9. Fairways were okay, rate them a 6. Greens were very small, in pretty poor condition, with lots of ball marks and missing patches of grass, rate them a 3. Traps rate a 5. Tees weren't too bad, but grass was very long and needed cutting bad. It's a very short course, even from the tips. Many of the holes play considerably shorter than scorecard says they do. Back 9 is considerably better than the front inasfar as design, but condition notsomuch. Just can't recommend playing here unless a last resort. Lots of condos around the course and lots of new construction going in also. Very nice clubhouse and decent practice green, but no driving range. The clubhouse belongs at a course waaaay better than what's there. Course has a cheap muni feel to it.

Cons: The turf quality really hurts this course. You want to know that you'll be rewarded by hitting the fairways with a cleaner shot, but the turf is not much different than the rough. Some of the greens are in very bad shape also. Not as big of a deal, but still detracting from the looks, is the debris all over the place on parts of the course. On one of the long par 3s, the yardage was off as much as 20 yards from the marking. I would highly recommend going out with a range finder.

Pros: The staff were nice, the play was quick, and the course was quite challenging.

This course has really come into it's own. What a change from 2 years ago. The golf is challenging and the value is unbeatable. Mark this one down as one of your "must play" courses when in the area.

I was a little worried when I booked this course, based on what other people I had talked to had said. We found the course to be in great shape and I loved the designs of some the holes. I did not play it as well as I could have, but all that was operator error. We will play this course on every trip to Myrtle Beach. The staff was so friendly and courteous. I would recommend this course to my friends.

I am member here! I would like to say they are trying to turn the corner here at Colonial Charters. The condition are much better than they were at the beginning of May . Right now all but 5 greens are back . Weeds are gone. The traps and fairways are maintained better. Jim Brown and Staff are working hard to get this course back. There was a time that I didn't think it was going to happen. But you would be pleasantly surprised! Keep up the good work...

I've played here a few times in recent years. This was the worst condition I've seen the course. Fairways, tee boxes, bunkers were tolerable but the greens were horrible. Maybe they will turn it around but it gives the appearance of a course that's on the way out.

Whave plyed here many times in the past. The course is under new management and was more crowded than previously. We really like the layout with many interesting holes, but the course conditions leave a lot to be desired, and cart paths are in major need of repair.

I played this course because I had never been there before and GolfNow had a tee time available for $12.00 per player. First off, the staff was great and the two gentlemen we were paired with were great guys. However, the course was in pretty rough condition. It was cart path only due to soggy conditions. Under any conditions the greens were terrible. More dirt showing than grass. Bunkers were OK. This course is very short. Approximately 6000 yds from the white tees and 6500 from the tips. I guess it would play well for ladies and seniors. Not a very scenic course. #7, 8 and 9 have had all the trees cut out for some reason. Lot of nicer courses in the vicinity.

Nothing much exciting here I would imagine the course would benifit with the summer months,the greens looked poor but rolled pretty well. The men's tees were ok but the ladies tees were poor. Lack of directions indicators between holes,where to go next.There were no indications of what hole you where playing the tees.. In fact it was all pretty basic.Thankfully we got a deal on the green fees.Would not have liked to have payed the full price here!

Will definitely play it again Enjoyed the course overall. Conditions were very wet but not their fault. Staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. One big issue was the four ladies playing ahead of me. Wouldn't let me pass them and average wait was 12 to 15 min per hole as obviously were not experienced. Perhaps having a Marshall travelling around would have helped greatly. But will definitely return. Love the challenge of the course's narrow fairways. Thanks<br/> Phil Cousuneau

Almost cancelled my reservation but glad I didn't. If you can hit the ball straight on every shot you won't have a problem. There is water on EVERY hole except #2, never played a course like this that I can remember anyway. The course is well maintained & it has a nice pro shop. The greens are a little difficult to read and also fast.
