DESCRIPTION
About Long Bay Club

Looks can be deceiving, and such is the case in Long Bay's beautiful but dangerous appeal. Hailed as “one of the Strand's most difficult” layouts, only truly valiant and patient golfers need apply at Long Bay.


Considered one of the most difficult golf courses on the Grand Strand, this Jack Nicklaus-designed masterpiece was built to challenge even the most adroit golfer. Formidable in every feature, Long Bay displays countless large man-made mounds, a demanding 137 slope from the championship tees (127 from the ladies), handsome but deceiving par-3 holes and bottomless bunkers.


This course also combines aesthetics and designs from East Coast and West Coast courses, but The Golden Bear kept many of the existing dogwoods, maples, and pines along the course to keep it close to its true nature.


Despite the natural beauty at hand, this difficult course presents players with a number of unique bunkers, shallow greens, several elevation changes, and tiered greens.


Long Bay is known quite well for some of the holes here. In fact, the par-10 4th is among the most photographed holes in Myrtle Beach. This hole features a fairway surrounded by waste bunkers as well as an elevated green. Also well-known is Long Bay’s par-3 13th which is a beautiful island green.


Home of the award winning “Hugh Royer Champions Golf Academy”, this is the perfect school for golfers of all abilities.  And, with five sets of tees at each hole, golfers of all skill-levels are sure to enjoy the masterpiece that is Long Bay.

"Played at Long Bay on 10/23/16. I was not happy at all with Long Bay and would not recommend playing it. We were scheduled to be the first group off the tee as we were departing back home at the end of the round. It started with the Ranger hooking us up with two individuals who hadn't golfed in a while. I had hoped to play in 3 hrs, but it took us 4 1/2 hours. The course is in average shape. The tees are not level and there were a couple holes where the holes are under repair. On a positive note, the fairways and greens were in good shape, but the layout of the course is only average. I would not recommend playing here."

"My husband and I played Long Bay for the first time. The staff, especially Jason Mitchell made our experience a terrific one. We rented clubs and joined with another two of the out of town golfers. The staff was very friendly and the course was very well maintained. No gators though. We'll be back."

"It was my first time playing Long Bay. My brother in law spoke very highly of the course and its GM Jason Mitchell and all the staff. He did not oversell. The course was in great condition even with all the heat. The Bermuda grass was tough for us northerners but that's on us. The green were well maintained and the pace of play was good. My wife and I will definitely be back."

"I really like this course. I play it every trip down to Myrtle Beach. a few of the greens (five of them) have been re-sodded, but they are playable. The rest of the greens are fine and putted very well. Played our round in 3hrs and 30 minutes."

"Great course. A must play. Played after a good deal of rain. Bunkers were good. course conditions great. Beautiful holes esp 7,10,18 and all 4 par 3's. Paid 48 hour rate of 49 and my son (11) played for free. 7:38 am tee time and course mostly empty finished in 3.5 hours. Staff friendly and cart lady thanked us for being out playing. With all the choices will be back to play this course soon."

"I wanted to just create a quick review to tell everyone that despite the previous reviews earlier this year this course was near perfect. Tee boxes, greens, fairways were all in pristine condition and I highly recommend this course. I played despite it raining .75 inches in the matter of 40 minutes, so wet conditions were to be expected. By the third hole any standing water was gone, and the course was easily playable. Please don't let the old reviews scare you, go out and play this course you will not be disappointed."

"Course was in great shape...not sure what happened a month or two ago based on some bad reviews but when I played the greens were in great shape. Fairways were in good shape, a little burnt out in spots but that was to be expected with a couple straight weeks near 100 degrees. Definitely was well worth the money which was very reasonable to start off with."

"Very nice Jack Nicklaus layout, challenging but fair course. The fairways and tee-boxes were very well maintained, the some of the greens had spots but nothing dramatic. We loved playing the course, especially some of the par 3's and definitely #14 are highlights. If you're in the area make sure to play it."

"Terrible condition. In 20 years of Myrtle Beach golf trips we have never played a course in such bad condition. Huge disappointment. Why can all the other courses we played be in such great condition and this course has some greens with only 50% grass? And this was in April.....not August after a long hot summer."

"Without doubt the worst experience of the 2 week trip. The WORST greens I have ever had the displeasure of playing on. The bad winter excuse didn't wash because if Arcadian Shores and Wild Wing can have excellent greens then so can Long Bay. Memories of the course are hazy except for the greens which is criminal. Greens this bad should afford a refund never mind a green fee."

"Long Bay was a big disappointment! We played 9 there in 2014 and had a rain check for the other 9 and the course was in great condition then. So we were looking forward to playing there again and even brought more people with us this year. Unfortunately, the greens were borderline unplayable, with bare (diseased?) spots on almost all of them and one was half under repair. There had been a lot of rain the previous few days due to Ana, but there were clumps of wet, cut grass all around the greens on a lot of holes and it was generally in poor condition. Compared to last year, it was night and day from great to gross. We played 4 other courses (one later the same day as Long Bay) and they were in great shape. So the weather could not be the blame. Very disappointing."

"Course in terrible condition. Greens by far the worst in Myrtle Beach. Staff unresponsive to concerns about condition of course, saying all courses in tough shape due to weather. We played 5 other courses in Myrtle Beach during week and found no other course in poor condition. This course will be taken off our list for next year's trip."
