Rating 71.5
Type Public
Colonial Charters Golf Club (formerly known as Palmetto Greens) is located in Longs, S.C. near Myrtle Beach. It has a laid-back atmosphere and is known for its consistently good conditions. The layout will test your accuracy with narrow, fairways and a variety of water hazards and sand traps. Golfers will encounter water on nearly every hole, two of them feature greenside waterfalls. There are also several strategically placed bunkers throughout the golf course and mature hardwoods line the fairways. There are a few challenging holes but overall it is player friendly enough for any skill level to approach with confidence. In addition to the golf course, Colonial Charters Golf Club has a practice facility with a driving range and chipping and putting areas. For those who are still learning, there are PGA Professionals available for lessons.

Pull cart friendly

My wife and I are constantly searching for golf courses in the. Myrtle Beach area that allow you to walk the course. Colonial Charters allows you to walk in the afternoon after 1:30 which is a great feature. Be advised that this is a lengthy course. The course is in great shape, the greens were fast and well maintained. Friendly and accommodating staff. Will definitely go back.

First time @Colonial Charter Golf Club

This review is good & not so good. First of all let me say the Manager was friendly & helpful. The course has some very good & some poor holes. The #1 handicap hole is a bad design with no place to play your tee shot. A few holes I felt like the course was in the way of their subdivision building projects. I would play this course again, if I got a great deal

Not much of a golf course...

Played this on the last day very cheaply and at the very last minute when I wasn't sure the weather was going to get warm enough to play. It's not much of a course, so I wouldn't recommend it. Very easy and boring front 9. Fairways were okay, rate them a 6. Greens were very small, in pretty poor condition, with lots of ball marks and missing patches of grass, rate them a 3. Traps rate a 5. Tees weren't too bad, but grass was very long and needed cutting bad. It's a very short course, even from the tips. Many of the holes play considerably shorter than scorecard says they do. Back 9 is considerably better than the front inasfar as design, but condition notsomuch. Just can't recommend playing here unless a last resort. Lots of condos around the course and lots of new construction going in also. Very nice clubhouse and decent practice green, but no driving range. The clubhouse belongs at a course waaaay better than what's there. Course has a cheap muni feel to it.

Turf Quality

Cons: The turf quality really hurts this course. You want to know that you'll be rewarded by hitting the fairways with a cleaner shot, but the turf is not much different than the rough. Some of the greens are in very bad shape also. Not as big of a deal, but still detracting from the looks, is the debris all over the place on parts of the course. On one of the long par 3s, the yardage was off as much as 20 yards from the marking. I would highly recommend going out with a range finder. Pros: The staff were nice, the play was quick, and the course was quite challenging.

Big Surprise

This course has really come into it's own. What a change from 2 years ago. The golf is challenging and the value is unbeatable. Mark this one down as one of your "must play" courses when in the area.

Had some great holes

I was a little worried when I booked this course, based on what other people I had talked to had said. We found the course to be in great shape and I loved the designs of some the holes. I did not play it as well as I could have, but all that was operator error. We will play this course on every trip to Myrtle Beach. The staff was so friendly and courteous. I would recommend this course to my friends.

Great time, friendly staff

Had a good time even though only made it through 9 holes due to T-storms. Played with one of the members he was friendly and very helpful. The staff was great also. Nice to go to a course and get treated well even if you are an outsider. Couldn't ask for anything better.

Worst course in Myrtle Beach

Only played 4 holes and left. Course was in horrible condition and greens had big bare spots. Cart paths were terrible. Stay away from this place. If it were free I wouldn't play there!

Colonial Charters in Very Good Shape

The staff is working hard to bring this course up to 4/5 condition. The course is nicely manicured, clean, and very playable. Overall, the course is in the best condition I have see it in several years. I would highly recommend this course as it will challenge the best players!
