Not all that guys

So first off you are located in a big tourist area and are a public course. You don’t have to act like you are a PGA Championship course; on the cartsmen driving the course like it’s Fort Knox and the starters loading the bags and acting like they are the local sheriff enforcing the rules and policies. Like I said it’s a tourist area not everyone travels with a set of clubs and a polo shirt. When threatened to just get a refund and go down the road a mile or two all the attitude changed. Funny thing is they were on our radar for a company travel of over 50 employees for a golfing vacation. This course is off the list because of the staff Lost out on some big money fellas. Definitely mistaken the book for its cover.

Lovely course

This course excels in offering challenges, cordial and accommodating staff, lovely fairways, and solid greens. The one restroom is well-located. There is water on the course, very helpful in view of the overwhelming heat. Don't be distracted by the nearby airplanes. It's my new favorite course.

A sweaty Sunday

Good round. I was paired with Kevin of Ellicott City, Maryland, my home state and Jimmy and Billy a father and son team that relocated to MB about 10 years ago. The course was wet in several places as the rains just continue on in July. Greens were well tended. Sand traps were water filled or hard pan or both, so we lifted out of them. Fairways were pristine and rough was reasonable in length. I almost never play on weekends, as I'm in 3 leagues/groups - M/ W/ F....but this was good. We were hot and tired and all wearing down after about 13 holes.

Booked on GN

Booked a hot deal for One at 1:32 pm rained earlier in the day but, had finally passed. Arrived at Course to find front gate closed. Tried calling phone # on sign and nobody answered. This was a horrible experience considering the traffic on 501 when driving there. A nice course with no guarantee of playing. Hopefully I get a refund.

Old Grouch! Good course..

Good reception at the beginning. Course in fairly good shape with nice greens. After our round at 5:40 my wife and I went in the clubhouse to change and possible have a drink. Everything was closed. We quickly changed and at 5:45 à very grouchy employee asked me were I was going?? I just ssid outside to wich he barked at us to use theback because he had locked the front door. I kept my composure but this was uncceptable . I havent s'en obtenir à proshop and clubhouse close at 5:45. Very disapointing ending.

Good course for the money

The layout is fantastic! But i would say the bunkers were almost unplayable and that the green on hole #3 needs replaced. Some greens were in immaculate shape. Would play again for the price. Very reasonable. My hot dog i ate at the turn was not edible but the people were very nice!

Higher expectations

Just average all around. Lots of work to be done to have the course reaching it's potential. A little disappointed.
Rough fairways and mud hard sand bunkers... One green totally scraped.
But the layout is pleasant and the stuff helpful and friendly.
I guess a reasonable deal after all.
Thanks

Forgiving course that needs some TLC

It’s been 20 years since I’ve played in Myrtle Beach and the course was very well laid out. I was concerned about airplane noise, but that wasn’t an issue. The biggest problem was the condition of several greens, with some literally having dirt spots within feet of the hole.
