"I rented clubs, but they did not give me complete set - No PW or SW - There were also no rescue clubs in the set. When I realized that I didn't have a sand wedge, I asked the starter if they could get me one - He proceeded to tell me that I didn't need a SW and started giving me a golf lesson on how to play without it. I didn't appreciate it - The course also has some very rough spots, Cart paths are in terrible shape. It has been many years since I last played your course - It is such a beautiful venue - It's a shame to set it go down hill like this. I assume tough economic times? "

"We quit after 14 holes because there were 5 groups on that hole after playing the previous 13 holes in 41/2 hours. You can tell they are getting all the play in area. Tha course we played was Oyster Bay. I've always loved the course previously!"

"Thought the entire experience was second to none. All staff seemed acted like there only job was to attend to us! Check in was a breeze, starter great and course was in perfect shape. Layout is outstanding with great water views and LOTS of gators!"

"Am Pro shop, bag attendents, and grill person (Jo) were A+. At the end of our round we pulled up on the path next to 18 green, saw a Marshall coming towards us so we pulled off the path. The Marshall stopped, said, Do me a favor...Keep all 4 wheels on the path. We replied, we moved over to let you pass. ( It was not cart path only.) He drove off. Unnecessary and rude. In the grill after the round, we saw there were 5 TV's, but none turned to the last round of the Fed Ex. We asked Beth if she would change the channel on the TV closest to us. She said, no...it's to hard to change the channel. We asked the Pro/person at the front desk if he knew what channel the Fed Ex was on,..didn't know, maybe NBC, didn't really care. The Good, Bad and the Ugly. Other than that, the course was in great shape, it's scenic, a good challenge and fun to play. I recommend it. "

"It is hard to compare other courses at this pricepoint to Oyster Bay. The course is stunningly beautiful, the wildlife is rampant, and free lunch, breakfast, and 2 drinks with each green fee is amazing. The fairways were in good shape, and the greens were still recovering from the recent aeration, but they rolled true. There was a bit of stagnant water in some bunkers, but it didn't come into play much. All in all I will be returning to this course on my next trip to Myrtle Beach."

"The course was in great shape and the scenery was awesome! We had played a 6 hour round at TPC the day before and the starter assured me that we wouldn't have another one at Oyster Bay. He didn't disappoint, and neither did the course. Loved the fox squirrels and gators!!! We will be back."

"I have played OB and this is the worst I have ever seen. The club house is an unmitigated disaster: shoddy, run down, dirty and poorly lite, Food items desired were not available. Rangers had no control of the course and it took 6.5 hours to play. It will not happen again and I will discourage others to avoid by all means. "

"Very good layout, but because of the free breakfast, lunch and two drink offer, entirely too many rounds being played at the expense of the course condition. Landing and approach areas have divots all over the place. Greens were ok, but marked up. Give the course a break."

"Sorry to say this has went from a must play at the beach to a course that is down the list. Been coming to the beach with family on a golf vacation for the better part of 20 years and we play this course each time. I will not play any time soon. 2nd year in a row of rude people in the club house and on the course. (ranger was great). Better places to spend my dollars."
