Over charge vacationers be careful if u try golf there...best thing is to go elsewhere
We have been coming to myrtle beach for the last 5 years for vacation to play golf. Yesterday I sent my boy who is 20 and he's friend who is 24 to play whispering pines that I have played over the years. When they came back they said that they only played 9 nines and was charged $44.00 per person. $25.00 for green fees and cart another $15.00 because they took their wives along to just ride and to set it all off another $4.00 each because they were not locals. Unbelievable!!!! Not locals .that's how these places make it on vacationers golfing then they charge extra. The pro shop was rude to them mustt not want the vacationers business. No problem won't be back. Been golfing all week here have hadno problems with any other courses but WHISPERING PINES. Not sure if it's under new management or what but gold elsewhere if you want fair rates and a good time.
Talking to local people convinced me to try it. Much nicer than course I played in Conway at higher price. Greens in excellent shape. Course layout was excellent requiring some planning and good shot placement. I will definitely play this course again when I'm in town.
Course was in good condition, great value
Whispering Pines is close to where we stay while in Myrtle Beach, so I decided to give the course a shot. It was HOT(over 90*) at 1:15 when I teed off and I only ran into one other group during my round. I got around in just over 2.5 hours. Despite the high temps, I found the course in good shape. The layout is not overly long, so the course challenges you with small greens. The greens were rolling quite fast. I loved the red, white, and blue pin placement system they use there. More courses should do something similar.
I didn't find the proximity to the airport to be an issue. If you're the type of golfer who is easily distracted by the helicopters buzzing by, maybe look elsewhere. There are no houses on the course, which is not typical for many Myrtle Beach courses.
I enjoyed my round at Whispering Pines and I would certainly play there again.
New owners need to step up.
This course was apparently taken over by Vargo earlier this year, and it shows. The greens are terrible. It seems like every green rolls a different speed. The rough can be anywhere from an inch tall to 5 inches tall. The tees don't match up to the scorecards. It's pretty rough. It looks like Vargo is making cuts in all the wrong places.
This reviewer is incorrect. I believe he meant this as a review of another like names course. We are not managed by that company (I never heard of it), our greens are absolutely perfect and in the time he mentioned it was winter here and we would have zero rough... I hope he notices and deletes his comments. They are not accurate hence not fair. Thanks
Best Conditions on The Strand
Best Conditioned Course on The Strand right now. Fairways & Greens are excellent. Tee Boxes need some work but not bad. Very friendly staff. Great Value.
Mytrle Beach's Hidden Gem
20 Minute Frost Delay.. But pace of play was 3hrs 45mins with a foursome. Course is in EXCELLENT SHAPE Tee to Green. Staff as always very friendly & helpful. Course is very playable but has a few holes that can reach up & bite you. Great Value.....
Course is in excellent shape tee to green. Greens putted a little slow but very true. Staff is great & pace of play for a Saturday am was good.
Better than expected
After leaving Hilton Head and driving up to Myrtle Beach, we stopped for a late afternoon round at Whispering Pines. I had lowered my expectations after seeing their website, their carts, and their old school clubhouse.
The driving range is huge, 400 yards wide huge (it seems), and they had new(ish) TaylorMade range balls.
I was pleasantly surprised by the condition of the golf course. It was so hot that afternoon, but everything was nice and green. The greens were firm and Fast! A lot faster than the courses I played later in the week in North Myrtle.
After playing it once, I'd like another shot at it. Fun course!
Best Value in MB
Course is still in excellent condition considering many courses in the area are suffering right now, Greens are very nice & fast. Tee Boxes & Fairways are in good shape. Ranger came around several times to offer us water which was nice because it was very hot. BEST VALUE in MB
