Such a great course... no doubt about it !

Have played this course numerous times on my way to Myrtle Beach and everytime, it's been an enjoyable experience from the beginning to end. It's a very forgiving course, wide fairways, large greens. The greens are true and fast. Fairways and tee boxes are well maintained.

They have a driving range and putting green if you need to warm up before your round.

We got there much earlier than our tee time, and the starter was able to fit us in with another twosome, and we were able to save ourselves extra time for our travels afterwards.

Hats off to all staff for making our day.

I totally recommend this course.

I use golf now reviews to look for really nice golf courses. Belmont has a 4+ rating. My fee was $50 and this was not a $50 golf course. Positives:Pace of play was great and the greens were in decent shape.(no bare spots) Layout is wide and everything is in front of you. Did enjoy the young growth pine trees on a few holes. Negatives:Bunkers were inconsistent, Bermuda fairways had weeds in them, course went out and did not come home until 18, saw beverage girl once on hole 13, bathrooms on course where awful, cart was gas powered and struggled to start every time and some cups were cut wonke with slices on grass on the edge. Would pay $30 for this course.

Excellent track. Most holes with a turn are set up for a right-handed draw. Fluffy fairways and good, consistent green speed. Rough was also generous.

Course conditions

We have played this course several times and really like it. We booked a hot deal through GolfNow a few days ahead, but on the day of our reserved tee time the course was unbelievably wet, almost to the point of being unplayable. It was pouring rain off and on for our entire round. We requested a rain check, but the management said that it wasn’t possible because we booked on line. We won’t make this mistake again. We were one of only 2 twosomes playing because it was so miserable out. Only got 16 holes in before we had to quit.

Wonderful Course

Beautiful facility, great layout that is very well maintained. Still a bit dormant on the fairways but not far from waking up for the season

Hope to play again!

Great Semi Private Club for the area

Been playing Belmont as my home course since moving back to the area last year
The staff is great and always works me in as I'm typically a single not knowing a lot of golfers in the area
Course is well maintained even though we had a difficult winter
Restaurant is great for lunch or dinner after your round
Definitely a must play if you're in the area
Course is challenging but fair, 3 of the par 3's are long for the more average weekend golfer as they require a long iron or wood
All in all a great challenge with a great staff

Hidden Gem

This was the 2nd time playing here and it again was great! Course is still wet in areas and soft around the greens but no fault to them. We’ve had a lot of rain. Greens are fast and in excellent shape. Staff is so nice and friendly. Being from VA, they treat me like a member. The 1.5 hour drive for me is worth it. Thanks again for a great time and look forward to the next.

Pretty nice course

Booked at a I-95 highway rest area as I got tired of driving, did not expect anything and just visit the course. 1st hole was just average, but move on to other holes, amazed by the layout and well maintained course condition. Wow! I suddenly feel like visiting this course again. Definitely, would recommend to anybody.

Sooooo nice !

This is the second time I play this course while driving in or out of Myrtle beach, and it is a very nice and rewarding course. Beautiful and large fairways, fast greens, nice sand traps, well maintained course and it will always be on my list of must play courses when driving by in the area. Loved every minute of it !

If I had tbe money, I'd buy it !

We met some members (Ron and Bob) on tbe course and had a nice chat too.

Keep up the good work Belmont Lake Golf and Country Club !

Super Amazing Course/Staff

From the minute I checked in to the minute I left I was impressed with the course, facility and staff.

I showed up about 40 minutes ahead of my tee time as I wanted to putt and chip a few before my tee off. I walked into the pro shop and was met by extremely friendly staff. He gave me a detailed description of the course and the greens which paid off during my round.

The speed of the practice greens were consistent with the course greens which is always a bonus. The greens are 1 year old Bermuda grass. The greens were fast and rolled very true; it was pointed out to me by a member to only take half the break you see. Doing this improved by putting but you still need the right speed.

The fairways are generously wide and there is very little rough before you enter thick trees which I was told hold a variety of snake species not conducive to a good round of golf. I entered the bunker a couple of times and the soft sand was nice getting out of. There was some staff on the course and they are very friendly and helpful should you choose to speak with them. I played the black tees just for the sake of doing it and it provided an additional challenge to my round and a few extra strokes.

If you are ever in the area this course is a must, you will not regret it. Like I said, from start to finish this course is a pleasure to play and all the staff were absolutely amazing.

Nice Course worth playing

The conditions were excellent. Greens rolled nice,fairways and teeboxes nice. The tees and fairways were just a smidgen long for my liking but not an issue. The staff in the pro shop was nice. 3 hour round. No complaints. Highly recommend. For a hot deal rate its a steal.
