Nice Course

This is a very nice layout with a great staff. I really enjoyed the layout and the conditions were above average for this time of year in Myrtle Beach. I recommend this course.

Good course to play

Layout is very good, could be challenging, but fair if you play well. Bit odd routing around some holes. Conditions were not the best: some tee boxes and fairways were chewed up, greens were very slow and rough.

The central location and the lower green fees seem to attract many golfers (and non golfers). But the pace of play was excellent. May be we were lucky - our threesome finished the round in 3.5 hrs.

Good course to play if you haven’t played before, and it is a good value for the price. I will play again, especially if the course is in a better condition.

AZ Visitor

Wanted to play some golf in Myrtle Beach and this was the choice. Had a wonderful time playing with a local member and some guys from Alabama. Course was in good shape and was a good test. Had to rent clubs so this made the challege even more of a challenge. Loved the layout and playing thru the Pines was great...I'm always a fan of the beautiful looking golf courses. Weather was perfect and the lady in the golf shop was more than helpful, as was the starter. I will play here again and next time will bring my own sticks. Great day of golf.

Enjoyable day at Whispering Pine.

Perfect December weather day for golf. Staff is top notch, friendly and helpful. Shout outs to the ranger on duty that day for keeping things moving, Gene in the Pro shop and the Starter for being accommodating. Conditions on the back 9 were better and more consistent than the front 9. Some tee box were ripped up, and conditions on some greens were barely acceptable. Will play come again when in the area.

Chuck

We really like the course, however this course seems to have a sizable amount of non golfer clientele. Pace of play is horrible. If you are lucky and actually get behind someone who actually knows golf you will enjoy the course. However, your chances of this actually happening are small.
