Golf Trip with 4 of us. Very challenging and well kept. Greens are quick. Here’s a tip, if you read a break in your putt, beware, it’s not so much. Beautifully kept, great staff. Will be back.

We played this course after playing Litchfield Country Club that morning, which is, by the way under the same course superintendent. Breath takingly visually. Water is in play on 14 of 18 holes. The greens were fast and true. We look forward to playing again...More

Nicely laid out golf course with lots of water and bunkers. But very manageable. Well kept and groomed. Greens are tough but true. Would highly recommend this course

As nice as any golf course as I have played in Myrtle Beach. Great conditions from tees to greens. Very challenging. Lots of water and sand. Staff was very helpful and interactive. Pace was OK. Plenty of doglegs. Looking forward to playing again.

Friendly hard-working people make this golf course one that you will want to return to time and time again. The course is well-maintained, and it's fun to play since there aren't a lot of places to get into trouble. The signature island hole is especially...More
