I guess i am spoiled by living in the Myrtle Beach area when it comes to golf courses. this was the only 18 hole course nearby. The greens were slow and rough. The course did not have a beverage cart out. The rough was "rough". Very nice staff and a great "box lunch" deal for us seniors. Would i go... More

Yes, it's fairly wide open off the tee, but don't miss a fairway or you may not find the ball. I don't have an issue with that from a playing standpoint, but the issue becomes pace of play as folks search endlessly for balls only a foot off the fairway--over and over again. The fairways are well conditioned and the... More

We booked this over a week and a half ago to play on Friday (11/27/15) 8:00 AM tee time. Admittingly we are not pro golfers. About the seventh hole, some older man from the Management tells us that we had to move it faster. After a brief exchange of opinions, he leaves not to return again. Out of kindness, we... More

With my three brothers, we ran a Captain's Choice round because bro #1 had shoulder surgery in early September, and frankly we other three stink. But we kept pace with the other groups and had a great time in a glorious fall day. This course has some water but is eminently playable for duffers. We'll maintained fairways and greens! The...

Have driven past this course on my way to the beach for over 10 years but never stopped to play. Will now become an annual event. Welcoming staff and a fun and forgiving course. A lot of holes provide the golfer with some risk / reward options. Course was well maintained an in good shape.

Really enjoyed this little gem of a golf course and the delcious meal we had after a morning round of golf. Had Reuben sandwich that would challenge any good deli Reuben any day. Lush greenery surrounds the dining area accented by vibrant floral displays that create a relaxing dining experience. The food was great and the golf entertaining.

Had a chance to play this course twice last weekend. A good course is always better the second time when you know what is around the corner. Course is in good shape. Greens are fair, tee boxes are clean. A big however is-- give us more yardage markings. The tee boxes rarely gave us a marker that we could count... More
