Good course, but...

This was a nice course but it's in bad shape, especially the greens. Staff was friendly but were backed up on every hole..

Unfortunate

Sad this well designed course is in such horrible condition. Greens are unplayable. No fairways to speak of. 80% crabgrass. Course has great potential but apparently there is no $ to fix it up. Not worth $26.00. But we had fun.

Fun course

The course has a fun layout and we enjoyed the round. There were some good challenges but not excessively difficult - a good mix. However, the course is in need of some serious maintenance. The tee boxes are mostly not in good shape, very loose and sandy. The fairways are way too tall - you can literally lose a ball in the middle of the fairway! And the greens are not in good shape or consistent. Some are very hard and fast and dry while others are tall cut and very slow - in the same round! And some greens have dried-out sandy and dirt patches - some with multiple patches.

The course is a good layout

The course needs a bunch of work. The greens were very bumpy and the bunkers were not playable. The staff was very friendly and the 19th hole was good.

Friendly Home Course Feel

What a great place to relax and have a nice round of golf. You can tell that the staff really care and are putting time and energy into this place. You can tell it is in a bit transition between winter and summer grasses. But still a good course. Give it a go.

Not well maintained

Fairways were crabgrass, weeds and Bermuda. Bunkers were just washed out hard packed sand or filled with water. Only $25 to play so got what we paid for.

A once good course

This course was probably nice at one time, but now it is in need of alot of work.
Cart paths are black top craters.
Bunkers are fiull of water and some weeds.
Greens are patchy.
I would only play here if I had a discounted rate.
However the lady in the pro shop was wonderful.

Not worth $36

Worst course I’ve ever played in myrtle beach by far. Greens were longer than the fairways. Tee boxes are dirt and sand. Bunkers are either dried up on puddles throughout. By home (Cincinnati) this would be a $15-$20 course.

Rough ride

Don’t start at an early tee time. This course could be nice later in the day but at 8:15 it was soaking.

Great Welcome!

Love the way the staff treats you. Although this course may no be the most challenging, the overall experience was top notch for both my wife and myself. Coming from the northern climes, Carolina Shores was our first round of the season. Fairways are wide to soak up the errant drives. Conditions although somewhat wet are very good. I;m sure the sand trips will improve once the weather gets better. We will be back.

Dandelion Haven

The course looked great from the road but the conditions of the course from tees to greens were sub par. Nothing mowed, no grass on the tee boxes and dandelions growing everywhere. The course was busy and had a great rating but I think we were playing on a course still not recovered from last years hurricane, that would probably be their excuse. Anyhow my brother who has a 7 handicap had his worse round in years because he was so disappointed with the conditions. We also get stuck behind a 3 some with no groups in front of them to be seen from the first hole. They would not let us through and there were no rangers to help us out. I think the course has promise but I would not play there again. This is my first negative review that I can remember. The good point of this course was the Pro shop manager and the starter. Sometimes taking the bargain round does backfire.
