This beautiful facility is located on 270 pristine acres at the North end of the Grand Strand. Blessed with a unique topography and large mature trees, the course meanders down to the inter-coastal waterway with scenic vistas to distract you at every turn.

This 6900 yard Clyde Johnston design is owned and managed by the same group that developed the fabled Heather Glen links and the service you have grown to expect from this organization is evident the moment you drive up to the clubhouse. Give this course a try the next time you vist the Myrtle Beach area. You won't be disappointed!

Tough course

Fairways and approached very wet so not much roll. Aesthetics were awesome being on waterway. Too many carries over marshes for senior players. Greens average but would hold a shot. Speed a lot slower than they looked. Senior players do not need a 515 yard par 5 or several 350 plus par 4’s.

Beautiful Views

Tough course, with some good holes on the waterway. Not too long, but you need to hit it straight. Overall greens in good condition, fairways and tees have some sparse areas but not bad. Very playable. There was some type of tournament in the morning which delayed start by 20 minutes but we moved around in a reasonable 4 hours. All and all a nice round.

Course was extremely wet. Several tee boxes were casual water. Grass was sparse on the boxes as well. Easy to hit fat shots with large divots in the fairways. Course claimed extremely hot weather as the reason. Such a thing as too much water!! Frustrating.

Be prepared to be challenged

Played this course for the first time, and found it to be in very good shape. Fairways and greens in good shape although a couple of greens were looking a little burnt out. They provide a yardage book, which was very helpful, but playing with someone who knows the course was very helpful. You can get into trouble very quickly if you don’t have course knowledge. It’s a fun, challenging course and I will try again I am sure. The views on the holes along the waterway are beautiful.

Tough

This course isn't for the faint at heart! It's a positional golfers dream with tree lined fairways and a bombers nightmare with waist areas within reach. Course was in pretty good shape. Tee boxes were somewhat high. Fairways were in good shape and greens rolled true. Probably the toughest 3 finishing holes at the beach but incredible views! Wouldn't recommend for beginners but it's a good, fair challenge for experienced players.

Poor customer service from the starter

My husband and I arrived 30 minutes prior to our tee time. 15 minutes before our tee time, we were told we were up next. The starter then decided to put 3 guys out in front of us. One of the guys said his tee time was 1 hour later and wanted to know if they had an earlier opening. We waited behind them all day!!
Very disappointed! Woman play good golf too!

Disappointed

The best thing about our round was the breakfast sandwich before we started. We were told the greens were punched on the 16th what was good to go when we played on July 6th. That was not the case. The greens were very bumpy. I am 50 years old and been coming with my family every year since I was 3. We play at least 3 times every week and this is one of the worst experiences. DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE! Our group has 3 single digit handicappers and not one of us played within 5 strokes of our handicap.

overpriced, should have offered aeration special

greens had large tine aeration recently and were very bumpy. Course staff mentioned it to us at check in but it was not noted on TeeOff.com when we booked in advance, and I would def not pay $68 for those conditions had we known.
