Architect Dennis Griffiths designed this track as a finesse course. He did not produce the typical beach layout when he created this 18-hole design, built in 1988. It has narrow bermudagrass fairways and large bentgrass greens and is bordered on the east by the Intracoastal Waterway.

Holes No. 1 through 15 are short, and the course lulls you up to this point. Then, the last three holes are uncharacteristically difficult.The course is mostly flat, with occasional uneven lies. Some tree-lined fairways have doglegs. The course is always fun to play and an especially fun round of golf for couples.

I tried to play this course but on the 2nd hole it started raining. We sat under a tree until it stopped. Then played hole 3 and it started raining again. Everyone got rained out. We were given a rain for 9 holes. When ask why it wasn’t for 18, the pro club staff said we started the round and had been on the course for an hour. 30 mins of the 3 holes we played were spent sitting under a tree waiting for the rain to stop. The course overall looked nice and was in good shape, just make sure there is no chance of rain or you will lose your money!!

Without being very long this course is a good challenge to all levels of golfers. The layout is unique and at times very tight. There are two areas that I feel were inadequate. There needs to be more water available on the course for the golfers, especially on hot humid days. My other complaint would be concerning the condition of the greens. They were very rough and obviously had been reduced in size. I have played this course a couple of times before and this was the worst condition overall. It's a shame because overall this is a fun challenging course to play.

Because not familiar with tons of choices in Mrytle Beach area I researched courses where my girlfriend and I could play 9 holes early on a weekday morning. I am glad we found this course. She is a beginner and starter immediately sent us to the back nine. No traffic, fun, excellent layout. Greens recently punched but we knew that before play, Ithey should be back to normal by July 1. In the end try this public course, it is worth the value compared to all of the other choices in this area where there are a lot of them.

First time playing here, a few greens weren't in the best of shape, but comparable to others in this area due to the rough winter. Great course layout, staff was friendly and price was very reasonable. Course was wide open when we played and the beer was extra cold. Anyone who complains about this course is a spoiled snob. 100% would play again and am very satisfied with my round. Will be booking here again next time I'm in Myrtle Beach. Thank you for a great day of golf. We hit up Sonic after, and that combined with the round made for a day I will never forget.

Rained alot the day before so cart path only as expected, not bad unless you're on the opposite side of fairway. Course in pretty good shape. Only downside, flys on 4 holes almosr ate us alive and the crows attacked the cart on 17 green and 18 tee box, acrually took the scorecard.

Nice layout but the greens were completely destroyed . I was really surprised by the condition and then found out that many courses in Myrtle and north Myrtle had a horrible winter and it ruined the greens. I just wish the courses were considerate enough to inform you of the actual conditions. Warning!!! Make sure if you’re coming down to Myrtle make sure to check condition of course.

Course was in great shape for the weather conditions this spring, i.e. horrible. I played here and at TPC Myrtle Beach in February and both courses were in comparable condition. East Port has different green grass that appears bumpy/rough but putts fast and true. The par 5s are some of the most difficult I have played and I've been playing 51 years. It's not long, but very challenging and the staff is very courteous and accommodating. I recommend The Valley to all my friends..
