"I thought the course was challenging. Enjoyed the picturesque layout and design. I did not enjoy being rushed by the group behind us. I feel that when you come to a course on vacation that you should be able to relax and enjoy without feeling pressured by the group behind you."

"Pace of play was dumb. First tee time at 7am. Last group off other tee at 9:40? Give me a break. Do the math. Guarantees a 5+ hour round. "

"The greens were incredibly slow making the uphill putts almost impossible. The pace of play was our biggest complaint. 5 1/2 hours is simply too long to be enjoyable. The club simply puts too many people on the course. We will not be back."

"If you appreciate amazing design and creativity in a golf course then you must play here. Many blind approaches on the best placed balls in the fairway. Supports the "thinking man's game" quote. The course is in great shape from tee to green and all the other things that will creep up if you find your ball going astray."

"What a fun day I had. I enjoyed it so much that I cancelled my next tee times and came back to Moorland. It takes a few rounds to plan out your game, but wow. It is one of my favorites. I had a hard time getting use to the greens. Grain affected the putts more than I am use to. "

"Unless your just looking for a score at an easy course, you will love this one as a fun testing course. I have played it once before and had a 110. the difference was almost entirely on hole #16. This year a 16-18 foot eagle putt,(Missed the eagle, had a tap in birdie) to last years 14. Tip of the day, if the flag is in the front, DON'T go at it, go to the back of the green and putt !!!!! "

"Despite the reputation of this course being extremely difficult I find it very playable. Large fairways and large greens give you a chance to score. But when you miss a shot on this golf course it usually kicks you in the teeth."

"Whatever your handicap is you'll not come close to shooting it at Moorland . It is a difficult course, with elevated greens, sand, water and forced carries. It is not a day quotes at the beach. I would put it in the top three toughest tracks in the grand Strand. If you are a high handicap golfer or are playing with high handicap golfers in the Myrtle Beach area put this course at the back of your list"

"We played it on 1/24/13. We all really enjoyed the day. Tees and fairways were in great shape and the greens were good for a course that gets a lot of play. We will return. Side note: our front 9 was calm and sunny and our back 9 the sun disappeared and the winds howled which makes playing very difficult but I love the challenge."
