The no mow zone!

It was a beautiful Sunday morning… we arrived early hit a few balls..

Course layout is challenging, but friendly… greens were mowed, but were extremely slow and bumpy. On the jones course they have lost most of 7 and 16 green.. a big portion is just black dirt.

Fairways were not mowed and nor were tees… now I am not saying not mowed in a day or two.. I am saying you couldn’t tell the difference between fairway and rough. On multiple tees it was like teeing up driver in your front yard..

SO-SO

Played the Jones course. Nice layout. Fairways are in good shape. Front 9 conditions where better than the back 9. Poor trap maintenance. Tee boxes on the back 9 where wet, sloppy. Greens on back where stressed out. Paid $ 40.00 for green fee which is adequate for the course/conditions.

Nice course but unfriendly staff

The course was in good condition even though very wet. Greens were a little burned but still putted smoothly. However, I will probably not return due to the unfriendly and unwelcoming bag drop/starter staff, especially towards this solo female golfer!

Great staff on the phone and pro shop ! Starter is a Great guy.

Had an issue with the day that was listed. Called the course and the lady was very gracious and friendly. Fixed the issue immediately. Starter let me know where everything was and got me to the first tee early. The area had heavy rain overnight and had just stopped. Cart path only of course and standing water in the fairways. Greens looked to have a few spots but overall it’s nice. Can’t state enough how friendly everyone is here.

Nice designed but poorly maintained.

This Rees Jones layout is a challenge. Probably was great years ago. The greens were very bumpy and slow for Bermuda. Hazards were poor. Hadn’t been maintained and made course look like a cheap muni. Practice area was embarrassing. I always look forward to golf in the Myrtle Beach area and try to play different courses. I can’t recommend this course as a must play. It’s a good design but needs some TLC to make it a must play. I also played World Tour , Avocet, The Surf Club, and Eagle Nest. Of all of those, Avocet is a must play and best maintained.

Over priced based on the name

The course is over priced for what you get. Fairways are in good shape but kept flooded with water. Three holes were cart path only because of the water. Greens are in rough shape and a couple look like they may not make the season. Driving range did not open until 9am so no warmup and the chipping green had not been mowed all summer. Save your money and try somewhere else.
