Aberdeen Country Club recently earned an overall rating of 8.2 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering particular recent praise for the quality of its greens and overall course conditions.
Aberdeen gives the golfer a unique opportunity to try their golfing skills on three different 9-hole courses. The Highlands nine offers slight ties to the old Scottish courses, with rolling and generous fairways off the tee and undulations that make those on the Highlands nine some of the most severe on the Grand Strand. Its next nine, Meadows, starts off narrow and demands precision. After the first hole it begins to open up and gives the golfer an opportunity to “grip it and rip it.”
Aberdeen’s third nine, Woodlands, is known as one of the more challenging courses on the Grand Strand. The Woodlands course offers an excellent mixture of tree-lined fairways and penalizing water hazards that will test your game. Great scenery and wildlife surround this nine-hole layout, where you won't find a home anywhere in sight. Only a 20-minute ride from the heart of the Grand Strand, you will truly test your game on this “hidden gem” off Highway 9.

This is a nice layout but the greens were horrible. Some not even half covered in grass. The course is very tight with plenty of OB. Need accuracy of the tee but who knows what you'll get once you are on the green. This was not even worth the $32 price with the MB Passport.

Greens were in terrible shape. I was shocked. Normally TifEagle greens are excellent. The fairways on Highland need to be cut it was like playing all shots from rough. Everything else was fine. Good pace of play and employees are great.

Putting on dirt on number of holes.

Easily the worst greens I have ever played on. Half of the greens were mud. Most of the greens covered in rotting grass. Can't believe they are changing $70+ to play there. I'm not even a picky golfer, but I will never play there again. Wouldn't even play there if it was free. I'd rather pay to play somewhere else. Starter was incompetent too. We were a twosome, he made us wait for an hour to tee off because he said another twosome was showing up soon. We could have teed off ahead of 7 foursomes and played the course in record time but instead he ended up telling us that the group wasn't showing up and sent us out after all 7 foursomes.

Loved the layout of course however the greens were like putting on glass. We did not mind that but the pin locations were not in friendly locations for amateur golfers. Worse scores all week.

Looked like a good course to play except that all of the fairways were very wet of flooded.

Did not like the greens, pin on the 8 hole was awful, you could stop the ball around the hole.
No matter how great the first 17 holes of a round might be, the memory of a course is often tied to the finisher. A jaw-dropping No. 18 can put you in an emotional state that leaves you craving more. Up and down South Carolina’s Grand Strand, five of the area’s courses are home to some fantastic finishers.
It’s easy to spend your time at Aberdeen Country Club concentrating on all the water. With ponds of varying degree touching 24 of the 27 holes here, keeping your golf ball dry should be a priority. However, all that water, for as great as its overall impact on the course via playability and wildlife, is actually only one more part of Tom Jackson’s fantastic design.
For as much as the Grand Strand’s golf scene is a niche all its own, there’s only so many hours in the day where a round is possible. Plus, if those 18 or 36 holes weren’t so kind, finding a way to improve your day on the links after the fact never hurts, either. Below are some favorite watering holes worthy of your coin. Without catering specifically to golfers, they’ve already earned more than their fair share. And for good reason.
