Good Value

Overall this course is a good value. The conditions were off due to the over seeding. It was very soggy. The staff was helpful and friendly. The layout is challenging but not severe.

Great Mixture of Classic Design & Target Holes

The course was fun to play with some beautiful, pine-lined holes mixed up with some target-water holes. Condition was a bit disappointing because they had just done the winter seeding and water was standing on a lot of holes. We even took casual water relief on many greens and collars. A few tee boxes are beat up. Fairways and greens were very nice. I would say this course is a little rough compared to the more manicured courses.

Staff was super-friendly.

I will go back but it won't be at the top of my play list.

Nice day

Nice enough course. Greens had a few brown spots, were a little grainy, and rolled oddly at times, but part of that is my not being used to bermuda. My biggest complaint is that a lot of the approaches, especially on the back 9, were really drenched and played so soft and soggy that it was inconsistent with the rest of the other course conditions. Last 2 holes are a very nice finish to the round.

The ranger needs to understand pace of play. He asked our group what our problem was because we weee a hole behind.. No problem because the 3 in front of us were playing red tees. The group behind us were never pushing us. We were on pace to complete our round under their 4.5 hour schedule and we did, 4 hrs 20 minutes. His tone was quite rude and didn’t appreciate the fact that we told him our pace was not the issue.

Extremely slow play

Had 11:52 tee time, actually teed off 12:15. Group in front obviously had 2 beginners who kept dropping another ball after a bad shot. After 9 holes they had two holes open in front. Ranger either didn't pick up on it or didn't care. After 15 holes picked up and called it a day!

Golf Course for a good time

The Palmetto at Myrtlewood Golf Club was a good experience for the price. Although the course was not in peak condition, the greens rolled somewhat slow but true to roll and line.

The course was an overall great experience but the staff did not want to stay late as our tee time was an afternoon tee time.

The course took the driver out of the hands a large portion of the course, this did not seem necessary or wanted at any point. It makes you play some unique shots but overall took your long clubs out of your hands on the tee a large number of times, due to water hazards.

Pro shop had great swag to buy and drinks were reasonably priced.

The 18th hole was a great experience with a canal to the ocean on the left of the fairway. We experienced large to small boats (yachts) passing the canal and jamming to music. This really added to the atmosphere of the course

Value Golf on the Grand Strand

The Palmetto Course at Myrtlewood is a older style Myrtle Beach Course along the Intercoastal Waterway. The layout features multiple water hazards, older pines and solid bunkering. At only $54 for weekend play, the Palmetto Course is an outstanding value on the Grand Strand.

The conditioning of the course is average, to slightly above average. The fairways were very wet, despite there not being significant rain before we played. The greens are on the slower side for Myrtle Beach, but they seem to roll true.

The out and back layout is unique, with 9 tee being about as far from the clubhouse as any point on the property. I liked the back 9 better than the front 9, with the 17th and the 18th being really great holes.

I definitely recommend the Palmetto Course at Myrtlewood for a fun, relaxing round at a strong value.

My favorite hole in the property is hole 18. With the intercoastal waterway down the left, it's a classic finisher.

Excellent course with terrible pace of play!

We played this course this past weekend. It was a very nice course with a good range. Clubhouse is right on the ICW, it's great to sit out there and watch the boats go by while having lunch. The course itself was in great shape, the greens rolled nice, fairways and tee boxes were plush. Layout was excellent The pace of play however, was flat out terrible. We were backed up every single hole from #2 on and it took 5:30 to play 18. In the hundreds of rounds i've played in my lifetime this was by far the slowest. Even the ranger admitted that they booked to many tee times, every 8 minutes from 7:30-3. Clean up the pace of play and this is an excellent course. Quit being greedy!
