Colonial Charters Golf Club (formerly known as Palmetto Greens) is located in Longs, S.C. near Myrtle Beach. It has a laid-back atmosphere and is known for its consistently good conditions. The layout will test your accuracy with narrow, fairways and a variety of water hazards and sand traps. Golfers will encounter water on nearly every hole, two of them feature greenside waterfalls. There are also several strategically placed bunkers throughout the golf course and mature hardwoods line the fairways. There are a few challenging holes but overall it is player friendly enough for any skill level to approach with confidence. In addition to the golf course, Colonial Charters Golf Club has a practice facility with a driving range and chipping and putting areas. For those who are still learning, there are PGA Professionals available for lessons.

Signage

We were happy with the first 9 holes. Finding 10 was difficult. There are NO signs. We drove down the public road pulling over for traffic to pass and drove to the clubhouse. The starter gave me directions, back on the road through a residential area and turn into path past house #266. . After finishing 18, same problem. Back onto a road. A neighbour gave me directions to a path... the path had NO signage.
An easy fix ..... put a couple of signs.

Give it a try

So, heard a few negatives about the course but wanted to give it a shot.
First, it is on the shorter side but layout and narrow landing areas will make you work hard for a good score. Greens were slow which was good as they were small. Any faster and it would have been very tricky due to size. They were very consistent but a couple had a few rough spots that never came into play for me.
Second, the tee boxes were beat up in spots like other posters have said but don't let that get you down.
Third, pace of play was fantastic and the price was right.

Staff

The staff made this trip. The were absolutely phenomenal from the bag drop guys to the starter to the bartender. Absolutely amazing service. Had a great time playing the course got paired up with two of the nicest guys I have ever met. Then go in have a great lunch and conversation with the bartender which her and the manager helped me get onto another of their courses that afternoon at long bay which was equally as good and staff was also amazing. Awesome place with great service.

Fun. Cart paths bad

Super fun coarse. Tight fairways, lots of water. Cart paths are a mess. On cart path only days its impossible. Bumpy and some places deep mud and puddles. Surprising the coarse was still in pretty decent shape and putting was true for the post part.

isn't the same

I'm guessing they've rerouted the course to build homes. sad. i can't say I'll be back. not even for a cheap rate. I'd rather pay 20 or 40 bucks more to play something that resembles a nice golf course.

Easy to like

Came as a single & joined by one local golfer. The course was in overall good condition although there were a few fairways with some tight grass areas.The greens were good & rolled true. We were waved though by several groups so the pace was good. Will definitely return.

Long ride

Good course, will be better without all the construction and add some trash receptacles. Number 10 needs some signage. $7.50 for an egg salad sandwich quite unexpected, restraint too expensive.

This course will be sold and turned into houses within the next couple years

Good course, but could have gotten a better rate going with senior discount in person vs. T-time.

Surprisingly nice

First time at the course, and learned that 16 holes had water. But the course was fair, and we were able to play around the hazards.
