Winding its way throughout a pristine nature preserve, this magnificent Tim Cate design is one of The Grand Strand's all-time favorite layouts. Now featuring new MiniVerde greens, this gorgeous Big Cat is groomed to perfection and ready to help you go on the hunt for some birdies!

It was better in that it wasn't as busy and difficult and we played alone. Or thought for looking somewhere else was that they were looking to get golf groups (like Myrtle Beach does) and it would be difficult to get a tee time for members at certain times of the year.

When we arrived the parking lot was very full, which had us a bit nervous. After registering in the pro shop we and talking to the starter, they said they weren't busy, yet we were surprised to be waiting at the first 4 holes. The starter was new and didn't have any info on the course, other than where hole #1 was. The front nine although it was very lovely the greens had been aerated recently and weren't very smooth, impossible to read the greens. This was a fact left out when we called to make a tee time. They told us the greens were fast a 9 out of 10, a bit deceiving. However when we made the turn we found the course to ourselves, nobody in front or behind, and the greens in a much better shape. Had this been the case on the front 9 I would have rated this course higher. I will say it is probably better to call the pro shop for a tee time, as booking on the internet we would've paid $56 or something like that, by calling the pro shop we got a rate of $30 with a donation of 3 canned food items for a local food bank. Also we never saw a beverage cart on the course for refreshments. It wasn't a bad course, but since we had to drive 2 1/2 hours to get there it was kind of a let down. If I was to stay in Myrtle Beach I would consider playing again.

Teed off Friday, May 25 at 8:50.
Played here with a group in town for a wedding.
First - I used to play golf, I am now a duffer. High expectations, inconsistent results.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, actually cheerful.
Cart was in good shape. I appreciated the club and ball cleaner on the cart.
Awning to keep rain off clubs was a nice touch as it rained pretty hard for a few minutes.
Course turns a lot. So knowledege of layout helps. Scorecard map not always accurate.
Hazards are well placed for average golfers.
If you can hit it long it helps on most holes. Hurts you on some. This is not a factor in my game.
Cart paths are horrible. Very broken and rough. Rattled the cart pretty good. (brother in law rated them worse.
Fairways are in decent shape. Roll was ok and an appropriate number of bunkers was interesting.
Rough is cut pretty short.
Mowing crew was sensitive to our play.
That said they also left enormous piles of clippings in their wake everywhere they mowed.
Greens were not particularly interesting. Not much variety in pitch.
Greens were very different in condition. Some soft. Some hard. Some slow. Some fast.
Grass length on greens was varied. Most were pretty rough and you got a lot of ball bounce putting.
Greens were in good condition around the cup which made it easier to make that third putt.
Fringe area around many grees was rough. Transition was not smooth.
Tee boxes were very rough. Not a lot of flat. Your feet were often above or below your ball.

All that said I did have fun and enjoyed the course. I think that it is hard to manage a course at the coast. Especially one that gets a fair amount of play.
