Rainy Sunday

Snuck in a round during the only dry 2 hours of the day. Cart path only, still got around Piper Bay in less than 2 hours greens were quick! And in great shape. A few traps flooded, course saturated, but overall nice overseeding, and well maintained

Good value

Course was cart path only after some heavy rain the prior day. Course was also recently over seeded. Stick out feature was the long par threes, usually over water. 200 yards from the white tees.

sandpiper 11/16

Cold today the Cdn cold snap hit. Rained again, but not as much but the cold has taken charge.

The course was much better overall today. the over seeding has really taken over and just sucked off the water. Greens were fast and sneaky. Club house is great, staff are really great, helpful will be back next year to this all over again.

Fun course

Fairways still a little wet so cart path only. But fairways get better daily. Tee boxes very plush. Staff very friendly. With 27 holes every round is a little different. Love this course.

Slow Play and no Ranger

Course was in great shape and greens were very true. Round was completely spoiled by a male foursome that despite being pushed would not let anybody through and had no intention of playing under 5 hours. A course ranger would have been nice.

Excellent course conditions

The course was in excellent shape. The staff explained that the reconstruction had really improved the greens, which was definitely true. Greens rolled fast, true and smooth. Very challenging course, especially when the wind came up later in our round.

Pace was the only slight negative. There was a large, older group in front of us that played rather slowly. We still had a great time.

Very Good

The course was very good condition especially considering that they are recovering from the hurricane. The only problem was the 5hr round because they had a members tournament going. But even over that time it was very enjoyable.

Bay & Sand course

Excellent greens and great layout. Unbelievable value in Myrtle Beach area! Would play here every day if I could! Held up on the Bay but clear sailing on the Sands(back 9)

Fairways we're all well drained & bunkers had great sand. Water on many of the holes but do not come into play got the most part. Good scenic addition to help keep the fairways dry

Staff from the pro shop to the starters we're welcoming and courteous
