Ok, not great!

The course lay out was not bad, but the course needed to be mowed bad. It was not in very good shape and definitely not worth the price.

Great Golf Experience

Beautiful Course...challenging, but fair. A bit of everything, including water hazards and long fairways.
A bit wet in places.
Beware of the Gators...

Very challenging and well maintained

We had a Hot Deal which kept price reasonable. Great layout. Keep the ball left off tee on 18 and use an extra club on most approach shots. Enjoy.

Fair Test of Golf

Course was in very good shape considering the amount of rainfall here in the last 2 weeks. Getting zero roll so course played long. Greens were in great shape, putted very true at a 10 stimp pace. Nice straightforward Rees Jones design used every club in the bag.

Very nice course

Very good layout, course was very wet after a lot of rain but greens still rolled true and with decent speed. Wide fairways to make tee shots more forgiving with big greens to hit to. I was a single and was fortunate that 3 different groups let me play through very quickly. Will definitely play again.

This is a must-play in Myrtle Beach

Course (I played the Jones) has a great layout - plenty of challenges and plenty of scoring opportunities. It was in good condition for post-winter. Greens are excellent. Staff is great - kudos to the guys in the starter shed - they will take care of you! No doubt this belongs on your “must play” list for a golf trip to Myrtle Beach.

Must play

Played the Jones course and would highly recommend it. We purchased the round on GolfNow as a twosome and got paired up with another couple. The course was in excellent shape and played at a perfect pace. Greens were not too fast but played very true. We really enjoyed our day!

Excellent time

My wife and I showed up early and they offered us to play the Burd course if we wanted to. We said yes and played in 4 hours. Only one long forced carry over water for her. Red tees were very forgiving.
Greens were fast and true. Bermuda rough was short but very sticky. Lots of water on the back nine along the fairways but not too much to carry. Overall we enjoyed our day and would come again.

Straight forward layout.

The greens were in good shape and rolled good. Fairways were in great shape but very narrow. Rough was manageable to hit shots from. Was a little wet around greens but they held a shot well. Overall I enjoyed the course. I'm from Texas and would play here again.
