Tough, Tough Greens
Had never played this course, so wanted to try it. It was a real test...especially the greens! I have played a lot of courses around the country, and this course had some of the fastest greens on which I've ever played! They were extremely tough--very fast, subtle undulations, and easily 3-putt territory. My first round was so bad, I played a second round to help boost my ego. Was able to shave 8 strokes off, but still not to my expectations score wise. The course is very nicely manicure, a nice variety of hole designs, in great shape, and the staff is extremely accommodating. I will try it again to see if I can "master" the challenge.
Nice layout, course in good shape, starters, rangers, nice. Restaurant, service and food good. Tough, challenging greens, rolling hills, a tough test of golf. Jason, in the pro shop, very friendly. Was windy, the day our group played, making the course play tough.
Hidden Gem in MB
Great Pete Dye layout. Need to think you way around the course. Conditions very good. Greens were some of the best I have played in Myrtle Beach area. Highly recommend playing here.
Very challenging course, large greens
This is a very challenging course, your must pick correct tees or you will have a long tough day. Layout will take you through your bag with most all of your clubs, several par 4's over 400 yards from the white tees! Rough is penal in many areas around course, driving it in the fairways will serve you well. Pace of play was very good, less than 4 hours.
Favorite Course in Myrtle Beach
This is a great course with lots of challenging holes but opportunities to score. It has holes that are pretty open and others that are narrow. Staff is very friendly and seem to enjoy having you on the course. Recommend this course as a must for those traveling to Myrtle Beach for golf.
A true test
Prestwick is a Dye special. There is plenty of trouble around the greens. The course offers many different sets of tee's. Prestwick is a challenging course, but when it dry's out it can be one of the toughest courses in the area. A top 5 pick on the grand strand.
Great course very challenging in great shape greens run fast and true. Great service!
Nice course..not one of Pete Dyes best.
Played for the first time and was not overly impressed with the staff or the club house. The course was very nice and a playable layout when played from the proper tees. Rough was dried out after the frost from the week before. Greens were slow. I would like to return under better conditions but hope the staff are more accommodating and friendly considering it is a public facility.
Nice course painfully slow play
It was a cold day there had been a frost delay and our noon tee time was pushed back to 12:30..No big deal. But 5:15 to play was painful.....
Pro shop Staff was indifferent they certainly didn't make you feel at home or even welcome.
Layout was nice fairways were generous, rough was dormant so not really a factor, sand was way too fluffy, greens were true, but slow I guess due to the frost and not being cut that day.
Number 9 was a beast playing into a major crosswind (towards the water) ands stay out of the bunkers around that green or you could easily be faced with an impossible shot. Lots of railroad ties. I'm not a huge fan of linksy course but this one was enjoyable.
Very challenging green complexes...
Another top shelf course. I was surprised with the difficulty of the design, particularly around the greens. Plays 3 or 4 shots harder than the TPC of Myrtle Beach, which is quite a challenge. Green complexes are very punishing if you don't hit proper approaches. The greenside grass and sand bunkers can get brutal. Pete Dye is a genius, though sadistic, course architect. Fairways rate an 8, greens an 8 rolling at probably a 8.5 on stimp. I say this is a must play, but do yourself a favor and schedule it later in your trip. I made the mistake of playing this early and on a cold, windy day I struck the ball average and paid big prices numerous times around the greens for missing by just a few yards or mis judging the wind. Don't shoot at pins here unless you're on. Conservative approach shot play with avoid way more doubles than shooting at the pins will yield in birdies here.
