For $25, it met all expectations. Overall, the course was really fun, had very good variety in the holes. The conditions were a bit deteriorated, which is sad because with good conditions, the course would be outstanding. One knock...no logo golf balls...come on, how does a course in a tourist area not have logo balls? Yes, I know the course is low key and such, but balls don't exactly expire. Gotta have logo balls. That said, not a big deal, I'd play again for sure.

All the grandchildlren have gone home from the beach so I had to play my round at Azalea Sands as a single. The staff were friendly and the course was in great shape. I have played on some very pricey courses in Myrtle Beach that did not beat this course. I hit a perfect spot in the tee times and was able to finish my 18 ho;es in a personal best of less than 3 hours. I don't feel that my trip to the beach is complete until I have played Azalea Sands. It was a memorable round.

Other than the pro shop being out of commission and the greens being a little rough. The fairways were well cut and layout was good. Watch out for the hidden hazards that pop up in the fairways.

Greens were in bad shape. Very spotty.

WE played this course as a filler because everything else was booked up, and honestly, i wish we had just slept in! Tough to tell what was fairway, rough, and even greens. Clubhouse was closed, but don't worry they have some very stinky porta potty's! Not a drop of water in any of the coolers on the course, trash cans over flowing(this was first thing in the AM). We will never play again.

I have played Golf for 45 years. I grew up near Pinehurst and have lived in Myrtle Beach 26 years. This is one of the Top 10 worst cources I have ever been on. Dispite the Locals Fee I left feeling they owed me money. The cours conditions rimimic my back yard and the Club House has been condemed by flooding. This land is begging for a Condo Complex.

We played nine holes only, back nine. Course was ok, seemed dry though. The tenth green was a bit confusing from a distance with a red flag. Seemed like a temporary green but it would have been nice to know that. Had the book with course layout so found our way around ok. It is much easier though when there are signs indicating way to next tee. The day was perfect for golf and we did enjoy it.
