Ok for the price

Not going to beat this course up. Greens are not good and the paths are rough, but if you want to get out and hit the ball a little, this course is fine. You get what you are willing to pay. Enjoyed a nice round with a visitor from PA.

WORST COURSE EVER

I and some family were down for vacation and decided to play this course. Man at front desk was very friendly. Man responsible for carts was not. He is the guy wearing earrings. He was very rude and disrespectful to us. Course was in the worst shape I have ever observed out of all the courses I have golfed. I would not recommend this course to anyone! I also told people at our condos in Ocean Isle about this course and advised them to stay away from it due to the unfriendly staff and poor playing conditions that greens keepers should be responsible for.

Very Poorly Maintained

Other than the very friendly staff, the course condition was inexcusably horrible. Fairways were like long rough, tee boxes were not mowed, traps were full of weeds, and their was lettle course maintenance in general.

The worst review you read here isn’t bad enough to explain the conditions here. We left after 4 holes.

Thanks for informing your fellow golfers. It helps a lot. I'm coming down on a trip next week. Any idea of maybe the top 3 courses that are in good shape right now or the worst 3 that are unexpectedly in bad shape right now?

This course saved or day.

After booking a different course and becoming so disappointed with the conditions and walking off after the 4th hole we called Sea Trail from the parking lot and booked a Tee time within an hour and the day was saved. Both courses we’ve played here are in very good shape and the staff is very friendly.

Wait Until June

This course has been adversely effected by winter and spring rains. The fairways are spotty and not cut. The tee boxes are sometimes non-existent. The greens were just barely starting to grow in. When asked the staff reported that conditions should improve later in the year as the Bermuda grasses grow. The course could be a fun track to play, but needs lots of tlc to improve.

I have played over 200 courses in over 40 states and 3 countries. This is the worst course I have ever played! Fairways have not been cut and are mostly weeds. Traps are mud and gravel. Greens 80 % dirt 20% weeds. Do yourself a favor and never play it

Carolina Shores

I have played golf for over 50 years. I have played some bad courses, this was the worst ever. Every green was in very bad shape, no grass or clumps of grass here and there. Could not roll the ball only bumpy all the way. Fairways mostly weeds. Should get our money back. Thanks Jim Colomb

Great Course

Great Local course at the Best Prices . Not far from Little River. Any level Golfer will enjoy this course . Fun for a guys weekend or locals. If your a local stay away from The Valley at Eastport. You may be retired but you will not be happy. Eagles Nest is another great course in Little River .

The staff were very gracious. The course, however is in very poor condition. The greens are basically dirt with weeds. It appears this was once a beautiful golf course.

First time at Carolina Shores G. C.

The course layout is good, however the conditions of the Greens were very poor. The cart paths were for the most part very rough and in bad shape. The staff however were really friendly and accommodating. I played alone and two groups of 4 and 2 let me play through without asking. The people who play here are really nice and understand the etiquette of golf. My compliments.
