Travellers talk about
“waste areas”(7 reviews)
“tee boxes”(3 reviews)
One of the oldest courses on the Southern Strand, this club offers large greens, and no parallel holes; two characteristics that tend to be absent from many of the modern courses at Myrtle Beach.

lousy practice facility, hit into a net off mats. Difficult to distinguish fairway from the rough. Ended up rolling the ball in the fairway as it was rare to get a decent lie. Bunkers unkept. Greens looked to have been recently verticut and very slow....More

Brought 16 people to the club and they did not have the promised pin markers available. We've played here before and after each play our members feel that the course is poorly designed. Good shots are punished by either running through the fairway or into...More

I will say that after a couple of big downpours we were still able to ride the fairways which was definitely a plus. But.... the fairways cant toward the waste areas. There are several holes where you have no idea where to hit the ball....More

Lots of waste bunkers but the course was in pretty good shape. Nice layout. Challenging enough, will be back.
