If only they did some maintenance....

Tee boxes were poor, fariways were a cow pasture, greens burnt and slow.. the only redeeming qualities is the pace of play, (very limited amount of players there) and the layout is actually beautiful. Unfortunately other than one guy cutting grass, there is little to no maintenance done. This at one time was a beauty, but no more.

Don’t waste your money

This is the worst course conditions I’ve ever play. The only reason pace of play was a 5 was because there was no else playing in front or behind us. Tee boxes were terrible. You couldn’t tell the difference between the fairway and ruff greens were terrible. The course is a great layout but that can’t makeup for the conditions.

It rained on us

By the time we finished 6 holes it started to rain! We stopped after 9 and they gave us a rain check! The people were super nice!
The course could use some work but it has a great layout and really nice carts!
We are looking forward to going back!

Good Value

Caught a Hot Deal and played early as a single. Check in was very friendly and helpful. Four or five groups waved me right through. While the course is a little rough around the edges compared to some others in Myrtle Beach it was well worth it.

Good value for the money. But it needs work. Fairways needs improvements. Very slow greens will add 5 strokes to you score

OK for Beginners

Not the typical Beach area course, more like the cheaper course at home.....great for beginners, but if you play much at the beach you will be disappointed...course is like backyard grass on the fairways and greens are in rough condition......Staff is friendly and great

Great Senior tee boxes

While the greens were in poor condition from bad weather. overall the course itself was not bad,
Also as senior players we appreciated tee placement that allowed us to enjoy a playable length for our abilities

Decent course

Old style course. Moderately difficult. Staff was very friendly. I understand course had been through times. Conditions were not great, but I have seen worse. It's not a high end course, but with a little more TLC, it could be an enjoyable place to play.

Worth the price

I played 18 with 2 of my boys. I am an okay golfer and my sons are relatively new to the game. The personnel could not have been more friendly. The course was a bit rough. Everything needs some work. For a golfer looking to hit the ball for great price, this is the course for you. If you are looking for the manicured course, you may want to find another course. We had fun playing today.

Needs TLC

Great layout, but needs a lot of TLC.
No such thing as fairways, bunkers are grass and water, balls are buried -and rough greens.

Would love to play after a make over.

Was good for the money

I played for less than 26 bucks is how I will start the review. The course needed grass cutting which was underway as I played. The sand traps have not been maintained for some time and some had grass growing in them. I was advised because of covid 19 is why However, I believe a course should maintain their traps. The greens were slow but most were O K. I like the layout and played this a few years ago when in better shape. I would recommend this course as a $25 course but would have been very disappointed had I paid more.

All you need.

Course is in rough shape, mainly the crab grass, greens and bunkers. This could be an amazing course with some TLC as the design is fine.

Would play here for under $30 but don’t know if I could justify more. Staff is super friendly

Lack of maintaining

Course was not mowed . was told at desk rain prior wks put them behind but tees had 4" trees starting to grow. I think that takes more than one wks. Tees and fairways made finding ball tough and made for slow play. Greens slower than molasses. Overall I was very disappointed. Will probably never return.

Relaxing and accommodating Course

Friendly staff relaxed atmosphere. Good value for price T times most always available. They had let the rough grow this day which made drive accuracy even more important. Mature Trees line the fairways and can easily add a stroke. Course allowed me to stay under my handicap after making adjustments for slower putting speeds on greens. Whatever break you see cut It in half and long putts will drop in cup. I will be coming back.

Don’t waste your money, time or effort no matter the price. Hit several drives straight down the middle of the fairway and the balls were lost. Not worth it.
