I honestly wasn't expecting much of this course, but it was a lot of fun to play. Greens had nice speed and rolled true. Lots of meandering through the residential streets but that's nitpicking. Play here if you get a chance.

The course is nice, tough play on many holes. It has waste bunkers and traps. You must avoid the sand. My brother is 7 handicap and he was in the sand several times. I avoided most of the sand as my handicap is 20+ BY...More

This is a poor choice for a golf outing. Waste bunkers give the course a dry, dirty feel. Twosome sent out directly after our foursome... terrible course management. With so many fantastic courses available in MB this one can easily be crossed of your list....More

Course was in good shape, especially considering it's March. Lots of waste bunkers lining nearly every hole. Staff was accommodating and let us move back our tee time the day of our round (the course we played in the morning had a frost delay).

Very good greens, grass in the fairways, scenic holes, excellent bunker style, drive through the waste bunkers, and great weather, what a great day of golf. If you haven't played this course, it is well worth the drive from Myrtle Beach. About a 50 min....More

This course is great fun for seasoned players. Course management is a must if you are to stay out of the waste bunkers. I play here often as course drains well after rain and play moves along well. Love these greens.

Keep it in the fairway. I can't putt on Bermuda but it's all good. Lots of waste bunkers so be ready to pick it clean. Not a lot of golfers on a hot day. Need club cleaners on the carts.

I have played this course many times over the years, making the drive from Charleston to do so. This time may be the last time I drive here for THIS COURSE. I was to disappointed to see the greens in such bad shape, no grass...More
