Magnolia Greens Golf Plantation is a 27-hole course that is conveniently situated just minutes from the scenic beaches of the North Carolina coast. The holes are divided into three nines: Magnolia, Camellia, and Azalea, which are named after the colorful varieties of flowers that grow in the area. The Magnolia and Camellia nines are played as a combination, the championship course, while the Azalea nine provides a quick nine that appeals to all skill levels. It can also be combined with the other two nines for a variety of golfing options. The championship course is the most challenging of the three layouts, offering a combination strategically placed trees and bunkers. The plentiful water features play a prominent role as well. Golfers will face a water hazard on nearly every hole.

Soggy Mess

Lots of recent rain including while playing this day left this course virtually under water. Heavy recent rain would be a good reason to avoid this course but it is probably a better experience when dry. The layout is good and everything is green and well maintained . Play seemed to consist of mostly regulars and pace wasn’t great if behind any of these golfers. The cost for the quality was very much in line and a pretty good value. I’d recommend the course on a dry sunny day.

Great all around course

Everything about the course was great except my score. Ate before round. Had a very good breakfast of biscuits and gravy.Hit some balls at the driving range,some chipping,ang putting. Teed off on time.staff at bag drop asked if we wanted ice and water in our cooler on the cart.great touch on a hot August day.the course was in good shape.Some of the greens on the Magnolia course where a little rough from aeration. But still playable..I spent to much time in the sand.

WAY over priced!!

Been playing this course for 10+ years and used to be reasonably priced and always in good shape, but today, not good! Grass in fairways was brown and old mowed grass laying everywhere! Tee boxes need lots of work, but the worst part was the amount I paid. I called and they wanted $65 so I booked online for $51.75. Not worth the money and what I don’t get it used to be $45, which isn’t bad for a sub par course. Don’t plan to play there again anytime soon. I’ll stick to CF National.

Good course

First time playing the course. I hit range balls here quite a bit, but have never played due to high prices. Course was in really good condition. Greens rolled decent, but slow with little break. Layout is very challenging, but enjoyable. Overall really good experience, but wouldn’t pay the money outside of the GolfNow price. The course is short, so be prepared to lots of wedges.

Great course with a friendly touch

Played for the first time today. Staff from the pro shop to the starter was excellent and very welcoming. The course conditions were excellent given the time of year... greens were smooth and fast. My rating would have been straight 5’s had the course design not brought so many homes so close to the course. The combination of cart paths next to OB on every hole was a bit much.....all because of the proximity of the homes. Would definitely play again given the conditions and the people.

Course in Good Shape

Course was in good shape and it was a nice, quick (sub 4-hour) round. Nothing flashy here, but it's a good course, and at $30, it's a pretty good deal in the afternoon. Friendly staff and nice practice facilities.
