We were visiting friends in Bolivia and had the opportunity to play golf at Carolina National Golf Club. It was a great time, the course was in wonderful condition. A very fun course! Staff was all very friendly and helpful!

Having 3 9-hole layouts, the pace-of-play flows well. The staff and the starter are very hospitable. Playing in July, the course is in great condition. The greens are great and roll extremely well. Their website say Bermuda greens yet they must be a hybrid Bermuda as they roll true and fast yet are very fair and playable. Teeing off at... More

Thank you for your positive review. We are glad you enjoyed playing Carolina National. Summer always brings high heat and low prices. Our greens are Champion bermuda. We replaced bent grass a few years back. The bermuda grass LOVES the heat. Our maintenance staff does a great job keeping the greens smooth. We hope to see you again soon. More

Playing on a hot afternoon, it was great as we played without delay. Course is in good shape considering little rain the last week. Great layout and forgiving if a shot goes where not planned. No drink cart but they let you use their coolers and provide ice to stock up on your own waters to stay hydrated. Played here... More

Thank you for your positive review. We have had a hot summer so far, but hopefully experiencing this heat early will set us up for an early fall. The golf course loves the heat. Much more than the golfers do! Stay cool. More

I vacation near this course every year and after years of avoiding it due to questionable conditions, a local friend convinced me to take another look. I was very surprised by how the place has been restored. It is now one of the best values on the north end of the Strand. I'll definitely play it again on next year's... More

Thank you for the compliment. Last spring was unusually harsh for many of us in the Myrtle Beach area. Winter held on for longer than all of us had hoped. The grass simply would not "wake up". We are very happy with the current state of the golf course. We are anticipating a great fall season. More

This course is a dream for someone who like to play at a beautiful course. The course is not too challenging and has some extremely pretty holes. The course is in great condition, except that the greens have been sanded for the last two weeks now. After 4pm the course is pretty much open and the landscapes and natural look... More

Golf course in great shape. Just enough challenge. The Pro Shop was very accommodating for 18 golfers with a Pasta Bar for dinner following play. Staff friendly and helpful.

We take a group of 12 up to the North Myrtle beach area each year, and this year Carolina National was our first course out. We were met with a pleasant good morning at the bag drop and from the time we arrived, rangers were nice, helpful and informative. The pace for our 3 groups was perfect all day long... More
