The greenside bunker at Palmetto's par-4 14th complicates the angle after a safe tee shot away from the water, bringing a nice strategic component to the hole.

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!

Great Myrtle Beach course

Played here with a friend and my junior golfer daughter. Love that the courses let juniors play for free. Beautiful and challenging course. Greens played nice. Played the Pinehills course 3 years ago. Loved playing the Palmetto course this time. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Great family course. Highly recommend.

Excellent renovation

You know how stars of home improvement shows love to renovate houses with "good bones"? That was the case of the Palmetto Course. The original course had a functional layout with one memorable hole (the 18th, along the Intracoastal Waterway), but it was always middling at best in the competitive Myrtle Beach market.

Architect Dan Schlegel's renovation last year may not have turned the course into a sensation, but it is now a couple significant notches higher on the Myrtle Beach golf pecking order. He made the bunkering more relevant and interesting and, more crucially, expanded both the greens and the fairways in order to make the course more playable. This means it is more enjoyable for every caliber of player, all of whom will also appreciate that the course is in tip-top condition, too. It was a successful project for the Founders Group International ownership.

Quality

First the course was in GREAT SHAPE with super nice fairways and greens and good tee boxes. The staff was nice and the layout was good. This course was in the best shape of the five we played even beating out TPC, and Grande Dunes Resort Course. I havent played Pine Hills yet but WILL on next trip down. GREAT JOB MYRTLEWOOD as you show how a course should be maintained.

Pleasantly surprised.

Course was in excellent condition. A few holes offer a very nice view of the Intracoastal Waterway. Good sand in the bunkers. Greens have many subtle breaks. The course is not overly difficult, although offering a decent challenge. It has a fair number of water holes, but it doesn't beat you up -' very enjoyable.

Walked

Walker Friendly Layout

Friendly and efficient staff, handy range and short game practice facility, walker friendly. The layout was challenging enough and mostly what you see is what you get, not many or any blind shots...and water penalty areas were marked with checkered flags. Still damp from recent heavy rains so we played lift clean and place. Greens were good and true. Played in 4 hours, only waited on last 3 holes. Want to try the sister course Palmetto next!

Perfect day

My son and I played here on a Monday morning. I am a high handicapper and my son is just starting out so we’re slow, but honestly the group in front of us was so slow that we fit right in and were waiting on them at every tee. The course layout is very easy for my level of ability. The greens and fairways were awesome. The only negative thing I can think to say is that the bunkers were in very poor condition. Every one I saw was waterlogged and basically unplayable. Luckily I didn’t hit into any of them anyway, but my son did twice and so he just picked up his ball each time and dropped it on the green. I’ll definitely be coming back to this beautiful place.

Nice round

The course was in good shape and pace of play was good for this time of year. Not the prettiest of courses except for hole 18. Good mid range course, we would play again.

Really enjoyable

This isn't the toughest course you will ever play but it is really enjoyable. Staff are really good and after you get past the first few holes near the road, the course is very pretty. Good value and defdefinitely worth a play.

Stay and Play here.....Good value!

With our Golf Package provider, we have stayed in the Myrtlewood Villas the last 6years. the condos are clean, perfectly located for golf courses, shopping and bars and restaurants.
We have chosen to start our annual boys trip at Myrtlewood and have alternated the courses each year. They have a great practice facility we utilize to shake off the 15 hour drive the day before, and have enjoy these courses as the start of our week.
This course has a good layout, with challenging holes. This course works well for all the guys in our group, with a range of skill levels. We really like the way the course finishes with a nice par 4 running along the intracoastal waterway! The Course is well looked after, as well as the range and putting area. Never had a problem with any of the staff, we have always found them friendly.
The breakfast "buffet" could use some work, and I don't recommend that, but the food off the menu has always been good with no complaints from our group!
Overall great golf course facility, and a great location to stay for your boys trip!

Ok, not spectacular.

Staff was great. Starter really enjoyed his job and it showed. Course is okay. Nothing bad, nothing amazing about it. Worth about $30. Not challenging. Would be good for an afternoon just wanting to get some shots in.

Good Course nice layout

played while on vacation March 22nd, 2018.
Course was in good shape for this time of year considering the weather recently. Played as a Single at 8am. Played Pine hills started on the back. Nice layout pretty straight forward holes a couple of holes where shot from tee need to be accurate. Greens were running slow, however they havent came in all the way.
Cart girl runs around the course the whole time not much of a selection. driving range, putting area.
i guess my only complaint really is as playing as a single when you make the turn they make you wait until everyone is already gone. Had to wait 45 minutes to start back up since they use split tee times. then play really slowed down, took 1 hour as a single to play the back nine. took 3 hours 15 minutes to play the front.
overall good course will play again.
