Played Panthers Run yesterday. The course layout is good with some great, challenging holes but, right now, it is in very poor condition. Lots of weeds on the fairways and fringes. I was less than 2 yards off the 18th green in the fringe and my ball was between two large clumps of grass which meant I was unable to... More

I read a lot of reviews about this. Terms like "rude staff" and "terrible conditions" were written. Totally false. The staff was great. I was looking for someone to be rude. It never happened. Everyone was polite, friendly and made us feel welcomed. My group had a great time. I would recommend.

Not worth the full fare - prob $35 at best with very poor conditions from tee to green, bad customer service and slow play.

Been several years since we have played at this facility. We have noticed a trend in the area of declining conditions of the courses in the myrtle beach area. The concern seems to get as many people out on the course as possible. Our round was just over 5 hrs. Too long. Conditions were fair at best. Greens are challenging... More

Hard to express how disappointed we were at the course conditions and the low level of customer service. We played Lion's Paw and Tiger's Eye many years ago and they were then top level courses. Panther's Run is simply run-down. None of the Par 3 tees had been mown in the past several days. Some other tees were simply not... More

Friendly, helpful staff. Relatively fast greens compared to other courses this week. It's clear they are used to moving a lot of people through this course.

I found Panthers Run to be one of the more enjoyable courses I played in the area. The course condition was very good. For my game, the landing areas were generous but also well protected by the placement of bunkers. The greens were in good shape and rolled true. I found the staff to be very friendly. The only thing... More

The greens are smooth and fast. The course condition is very well maintained. We encountered a croc on the 17th hole and two broods of off spring, made an interesting diversion.
