Nice course but could use some work

We have played here several times over our years visiting North Myrtle Beach and really like this course. The fairways, rough, and tee boxes were in fairly good shape. Unfortunately the greens had a lot of bad patches that look pretty bad. They rolled relatively true, but the bare patches left lots or pitch and ball marks. We played as two couples and had a threesome in front of us that was slow and there was no ranger to speed things up so the round took 4 1/2 hrs.

Fun layout

Since Farmstead closed down, I am looking for a new go to course when in the Calabash area. Decided to give Crow Creek a try today. First, it had rained very heavily the last two days, so it was cart path only. This is no fault of the course, it needed to be cart path only bc the fairways were pretty soggy. I will try not to reflect that in this review. Generally the course is very open. There is water on nearly every hole, but is usually well off to one side of the hole, and you have to hit a really bad shot for it to come into play. I think they are going for the links feel, and want it to play firm and fast, but it didnt today with all the rain. The greens are pretty big and undulating, and almost all of them have a huge ridge or sometimes two that divide the green in half. Also, some holes had small shelves on which the pin was located, and you have to be in the section of the green the pin is in to have a chance to make the putt. If you were on the proper level it was a fairly straight putt, not on the proper level well, it was like a putt putt course. You weren't going to make that putt. The par 4s, were generally short from the white tees, only 2 were more than 360 yards. All the par 3s were over 150 and 3 of them had a substantial amount of water and a forced carry in play. The par 5s were extremely long, especially in the wet conditions, and 3 of them were over 500 yards. Most people would not be able to reach any of those 3 in two shots.
Although wet, the tees and fairways appeared to be in good shape. They had grass, it was green, it had been cut before all the rain you could tell. There were a few bare spots in the fairways here and there and I dont remember any bad spots on a tee box. The bunkers were unplayable due to the rain. But again, thats understandable. The biggest problem is they have Bent Grass greens which is a cooler weather grass. They are probably great from Oct thru May. However, bent grass doesnt do great in the heat and humidity of the summer, and we have had a hot humid summer. So they had some bad spots, and were generally beat up some. I will say they didnt roll terrible considering how beat up they were. If the greens had been in better shape I would have had no problems with the price point I paid. However, with the condition of the greens, this isnt a $74 course right now. It probably will be in Oct. and I would play it again, but I would try to play it in the spring or fall.

Great Course and great staff!

Played here in the past and loved it. Unfortunately this round got cut short by thunderstorms. Still had a blast. The pro shop staff were great. Got a great deal on a putter! The bar was excellent! I highly recommend Crow Creek! Fun place and they take care of you! Golf carts were state of the art!

Good course, great value

Good challenging course. Greens, fairways, tee boxes in good condition.

Enjoyed the layout and playing conditions.

Only reason I gave only 4 stars was the slow pace of play.

Great value for the rate I paid!

very nice compared to several other area courses

Played in under 4 hours. I liked the the combo selection that was on score card, where you play some holes from white tees & some from gold tees because it shortens more difficult holes.

Great course and layout, but

Great course and layout, but the fairways were not cut at all and the greens were much slower than the practice green.

practice range

nothing says we dont care' like a practice range with no real grass and almost completely SANDED. ropes are 4 ft apart and dont look like they have been moved in a while. pretty bad when you are there strictly to practice (as i have 100 timies prior), you mention it to someone and they Laugh heartily.
there are lots of other places to practice in this area. i'll be sure to make use of them in the future.
ps
no warning of any kind what i would find. just took my money and ran.
color me not happy

Very Disappointed

Crow Creek is normally one of our group’s favorite courses. We played there today and the course was virtually unplayable. The course was very wet due to the recent rain. There is nothing that can be done about that. My issue is that the fairways were recently over seeded and the winter ryegrass is coming up. The grass on the fairways was over 2 inches high. It was like having rough in the middle of the fairway. Balls did not roll out at all and even perfect shots in the fairway lost considerable yardage and were nearly impossible to get a clean club on. We should have been warned about these conditions before we teed off so that we could have made an informed decision about wether to play or not. It is simply unfair to send golfers out with those conditions. We really should have been given a rain check or refund.

Golf trip

This is a very fair layout on this course. Conditions this time were tough but that was due to the rain over the weekend. Course is usually in top shape.

Not a good time to play Bent Grass Greens

Crow Creek is a very nice course. Nothing overly challenging and mostly flat. The greens are nice during the Winter and Spring and late Fall, but if you come to play during June through September, you will be disappointed. We who live in the area, still do not understand why they persist to use bent grass for the greens. When it starts getting hot and humid here, bent grass greens just basically suck. In the heat and humidity, the green keepers need to let them grow and they become crazy slow and they have bare spots and divots that don’t replenish themselves for months. There are always divot marks and bare spots, because the grass is basically just trying to survive. There are many other local courses that use the newer strains of Bermuda that love the heat and humidity and can be cut low all year to maintain a consistent face pace, receptive green type. Play one of them, you will be happier. I’m a 6 handicapper and play Crow Creek multiple times per year, but would play more during the warmer months if the greens were something other than bent.

A great day for golf!

It was our first time at Crow Creek, but certainly not our last. The course was in fairly good shape, which is surprising based on their recent hurricane. The fairways are relatively open and in good shape. While there is a decent amount of water, it is not intimidating at all. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Try it – you’ll like it!

Discrimination

Tried several days to play 9 holes early morning. Denied. “We wouldn’t want to play behind a 4 some—would be boring. Yet, people came about the same time and got on. The course schedulers are prejudice and do as they feel— pro men players. I overheard them giving 2 ladies about a First Tee time and price. Too many other places as nice to play. Won’t but a house there!

Great track on North End

I play numerous rounds in the Myrtle Beach area and have not visited Crow Creek in about two years. Since that time they have redone their greens. The re-do makes this a must play for any friends trip down on the Grand Strand. The course is wide open and not extremely long but do not let that fool you. The challenge is the greens. They are fast, pure, and fair,. They have tiers on all most all holes and if you are looking for a flat straight putt then look elsewhere. Bring your green reading expertise and enjoy the challenge. I also believe they have some of the best par 3's down here and water can come into play if you are not careful.. The fairways are great the course is great and the facility is top notch. Even the food is great. Do not make the mistake I did and wait two years to play this gem. . I will be back as soon as I can .
