Tired

This is a golf course community course that is past it’s time. The fairways are rough and bare in spots. The cart paths are so rough that anyone with back issues should not drive on them. There are much better courses in the area. I have been playing golf for over 40 years and I have never observed what happened when I played this course. The starter let 2 gentlemen out ahead of me that had 10 dogs walking around with them. I still am having a hard time getting my head around this.

OK, All Things Considered

Like many Eastern NC courses, Carolina Shores appears to face some money difficulties that affect the course upkeep. The staff was great and the layout a fair challenge. The weather here has been wet and it affects play. The greens are slow, but true, and the fairways are in need of some attention. The sand traps are treated as ground under repair which probably should be the case at other courses in the area given the current weather situation. Price is quite reasonable and I will play again.

Not so hot

hate to be a downer but this course was awful.........greens were horrible and the fairways not much better.......was an iffy day for the weather and we got 15 holes in before some rain hit us........so for the price itwas not a disaster and we had the course allllllll to our self as we did not see anyone till the end.......not worth it if you are a good golfer but bcause it was cheap and quick it was still ok

Worst course in NC

I have played this course several times; unfortunately this place seems to be deteriorating rapidly. Fairways are like a cow pasture, bunkers are mud, tee boxes are terrible, and greens are are great for feeding rabbits NOT putting. In addition drainage on the course doesn't exist. I asked the front desk about course conditions and was told course was in good condition, greens were a little slow Ha Ha

If only they did some maintenance....

Tee boxes were poor, fariways were a cow pasture, greens burnt and slow.. the only redeeming qualities is the pace of play, (very limited amount of players there) and the layout is actually beautiful. Unfortunately other than one guy cutting grass, there is little to no maintenance done. This at one time was a beauty, but no more.

Don’t waste your money

This is the worst course conditions I’ve ever play. The only reason pace of play was a 5 was because there was no else playing in front or behind us. Tee boxes were terrible. You couldn’t tell the difference between the fairway and ruff greens were terrible. The course is a great layout but that can’t makeup for the conditions.

It rained on us

By the time we finished 6 holes it started to rain! We stopped after 9 and they gave us a rain check! The people were super nice!
The course could use some work but it has a great layout and really nice carts!
We are looking forward to going back!

Good Value

Caught a Hot Deal and played early as a single. Check in was very friendly and helpful. Four or five groups waved me right through. While the course is a little rough around the edges compared to some others in Myrtle Beach it was well worth it.

Need work

Good value for the money. But it needs work. Fairways needs improvements. Very slow greens will add 5 strokes to you score

OK for Beginners

Not the typical Beach area course, more like the cheaper course at home.....great for beginners, but if you play much at the beach you will be disappointed...course is like backyard grass on the fairways and greens are in rough condition......Staff is friendly and great

Great Senior tee boxes

While the greens were in poor condition from bad weather. overall the course itself was not bad,
Also as senior players we appreciated tee placement that allowed us to enjoy a playable length for our abilities
