Disappointed the 2nd time around

Played this course last year and it was outstanding. This year was a different story. Course was in rough shape. On the 3rd or 4th hole my brother and I were walking to the green and he said something about them only mowing the front of the green. Ended up having about 7 or 8 greens that way and it was because they had laid new turf off the majority of the green. Of course they won’t tell you anything like that before hand when your booking the tee times..

Nice course, slow pace of play

Played this course during my spring break. I enjoyed the layout and there were some challenging holes. However, pace of play was very slow at times and even after talking to the ranger, nothing changed. Maybe it was just crowded that day but overall it was a good course.

It was in similar condition to King's North, but not quite as well kept because it looks like it gets much more play. Greens not quite as quick. Traps had a different , firmer, darker type of sand. Much less trouble (water, sand, etc.) to get into.

A good course for higher handicappers. You'll get the feel of a high end, well manicured course without the forced carries and difficulties of the much, much, much more difficult King's North course on the same property.

Count on MB Natl for good conditions

Played all 3 MB Nat'l courses dozens of times over 20 years of going to Myrtle Beach. The west course was in excellent condition. Everything was in great shape. This course is wide open for the most part. The greens were excellent. Of the 4 courses I played this week this one was in the best shape. As it turns out this was the cheapest price that I played but it was in the best condition.

Great Shape

Tee Boxes & Fairways are in excellent shape. Greens recently aerified but putted true & FAST. Staff seemed concerned because of the heat & kept reminding us to drink plenty of fluids. Pace of play was very good. 4hrs 10mins with foursome & extreme heat.....

Fairly Wide Fairways

Bag Drop very busy with 3 course but enough people to move you thru. Counter staff not over friendly. Course was in excellent shape. Pace was fine on front nine but slowed down on back. Not a lot of trouble on the course but challenging enough for weekend golfers.

Good course

We have played this course each time we have visited Myrtle Beach. Course was in good condition. Good service. Women's tees are very fair. Carts now have GPS. Only drawback, GPS sometimes play ads that you cannot pause while player is taking their shot.

It was a great layout and well maintained

The weather was great and the afternoon tee gave us uncrowded golf. It was a nice pace game with a course with little trouble. Our threesome played in less than 4 hours.

Fun Track, Well-Maintained

Interesting lay-out with just enough sand and water to make it a challenge. Course was in great shape in spite of heavy rains the day before. Friendly staff. Overall an excellent value. I'll definitely go back.

Nice Course

I was able to play Myrtle Beach National West Course on 07-20-13. The course was well maintained, the greens were quick, and the staff was friendly. I was in town on vacation and read other good reviews of this course so I decided to try it out. I was not disappointed. The only down side was that we only saw the beverage cart girl on the first hole (naturally when we did not need anything). I realize that there are 3 courses at this complex, so you would think that they would have more than one beverage cart girl going around. Overall, a very good experience though. Definitely a nice course for the money.

Enjoyed the course

Loved the course, it's to bad the excessive rain spoiled the day. I would like to try the course again in better weather conditions. I would highly recommend this course.

Great Course, Great Price

We were hoping for King's North at Myrtle Beach National, and when that course was unavailable we selected the West Course. Not much water in play throughout. Pine trees are the main barriers between holes and OOB. Only downside for our day was aerated greens. Fairways and rough were in excellent condition. Would definitely recommend this course. I will be playing at Myrtle Beach National again!

Nice course for the price!

Definitely a nice course for the price. Course wasn't too hard and that was from the blue tees. There are hardly any water hazard but sand bunkers almost around every green. Grass was maintained pretty well. Green speeds were about average, not super fast. Only thing that could be better would be the beverage cart make more frequent visits. With a heat index of 105 degrees on the morning we played, it would have been nice to get more to drink. Overall, would definitely come again and try the other courses there.
