This is a good course for the average player with a mix of challenging and easy holes. Water comes in to play quite a bit, most of the fairways were tight so a straight tee shot is a welcome tool. Good experience and will return to Tupelo Bay on our next trip to Myrtle Beach.

This very relaxed executive course is still a challenge. There is water on most of the holes, including #12 where you hit over a small hill and, if you're lucky, over the pond hidden behind the hill before the green. The scorecard doesn't show this hidden pond, but it is fun to try to try to get over.

There are only par 3's and 4's, with most of the par 3 pretty short. Number #18, however, is a par 3 and 201 yards from the blue tees and you have to clear a patch of brush just off the tee. This would be a tough hole to par for most average golfers, I think.

The course is lined with mature trees which come into play if you are off on either side. The fairways are pretty narrow, too, so on the longer holes your drives need some pretty good direction to stay on the fairway.

There are few sand traps on the course. We played a day after a good rain so they were hard packed and none of the balls went into the sand at all. We tried to hit them right off the sand.

The grass on the greens is slower than in Illinois where we normally play but we used the putting green ahead of time so we knew how they rolled. You can also practice chipping onto the putting green which is also nice and not always the case.

While really good golfers probably would want to play longer, more challenging courses, I think most average golfers would be more than challenged by this one.
