"Great Old Style Golf Course. Everything is right out in front of you. Overall conditions were good. Some fairways a little thin & some greens bumpy but putted true. This course gets so much play so I am not complaining. Very friendly staff & pace of play was 4 hours on a very busy day."

"Was there last week. Due to the 2 weeks of rain before our arrival it was hard to judge the course. The staff were great and the look of the fairways and greens that could be seen under the water look good.They allow our wife's to ride with us at NO COST The only negative thing was that the cart paths need a fair bit of work due to pot holes."

"Really enjoyed this course. Wide fairways and good greens.one of the strangest things I've ever seen on a golf course was this male golfer who was walking the course had 15 dogs walking with him. When he put down his bag to putt the dogs all laid down and waited for him. Once he was done putting off they went VERY well behaved.the course was in very good shape. From the tips (blue tees) it played long. I would highly recommend this course"

"I called the pro shop to see if I could walk the course. I was told I could. After getting there, and paying a young incompetent man behind the desk I went to the driving range. The individual in charge wasn't there, and had a sign up that said "Be Back In 2 Minutes". I waited 15 minutes! It was a elderly gentleman, and he didn't apologize for my wait. Afterwards, I hit my range balls, and then went to tee-off at hole number 1. Upon my way there the starter said "where is your partner"? I said, "I am a single, and I paid to walk"! He said, "Singles can't walk, and play until the afternoon". He also didn't have my name on his list. I showed him my receipt. He went inside, and another individual came outside, and said I was good to go. I said, "Well since I was charged for a cart I am taking one". He said, "I completely understand, it's all just a misunderstanding". I then continued to play golf. Through 14 holes I had a 10 minute wait time at each tee-box. Also, after paying $50 dollars I was very unhappy because the course was in terrible condition! Four of the greens where "burned up". After playing multiple courses in Myrtle Beach I have came to one "conclusion"! Golf is ridiculously expensive, and decent course is going to cost you $65 plus dollars!!! A good course $80+++!!!!! In Tennessee this course would be a $25 dollar course!!! Possibly not worth that much!"

"Course was in good shape, not great. Greens had just been punched, but still rolled well. Fairways were in good shape. Nice layout. I would rate the course as a 7.5. Would rate it a little higher if the grill was better. Only cold sandwiches and hot dogs. Nice middle of the road course for warm up. I have played it before because it is very close to where I was staying. Staff was very nice."

"The course was fine but I had the unhappy problem of losing my cell phone there. When a young lady at the desk went out to check with the cart crew she was loudly criticized by another man at the desk, saying "That's not her job! I left a number to reach me at the desk with the helpful young lady, as she did not find it ... luckily the phone was found by an honest man within 24 hours. But when he attempted to turn it in he was told at the desk to "just take it and sell it"!!! This kind man was able to contact another member of my group through my contact list and I got the phone back. He even refused my offer of cash for his trouble. Given my experience of the previous day there is no reason to doubt his description of events, I found the attitude of some of the staff to be simply stunning."
