Enjoyable

Course was in nice shape. Cart path only a lot of rain yesterday. Considering the rain bunkers were in excellent shape tees and fairways great. Greens were as good as any rolled great. A bit out of the way but worth it. Great price free range balls and very friendly I come down every winter and always enjoy it here. My thanks to the course management.

Good layout

Each hole seemed like an area that was carved for just 1 hole. No other holes can be seen. Lots of dog legs. Greens very good. Pin placements need to be considered as several on the top of a hump. Interesting layout. Staff seemed indifferent and not too welcoming.

A Diamond in the rough off the beaten path

A very good course for the money. I always rate a course by the greens first, fairways second and then tee boxes third. That is what you are paying for when you play. The greens where in excellent condition with consistent roll and speed. Fairways were cut and defined well. Tee boxes were also cut and had a good variation. The layout I really liked because it is just the course with a few houses on the outside edge of the course. Very good layout with a good mix of easy to difficult holes. Our foursome played in 3 hours and 50 mins despite the other 3 had never played the course. The course is in front of you with no tricks. I would recommend this course to any golfer.

Not a bad course for the money

I played this course because my home course (Meadowlands) was booked full. You can really tell the difference in the location of this course on a very hot day as it's 25+ miles inland from the beach so there's not much of a breeze. The temp was in the mid 90's the day I played. The no seeums' and nats were bad also. as far as toilets on the course... I saw one porta-potty. For a hacker like myself, it was a good deal overall.

Hidden Gem

This course is clearly "out-of-the-way" for the Myrtle Beach golf market. Probably only those who live near Loris, SC regularly play the course. For me, it's a 45-minute drive --- but well worth it. Holes #11 and #12 were difficult for me, and the others were very challenging. The course layout is excellent and condition of the greens couldn't be better! In spite of the distance, I'll still try to play this course a couple times a year.
