Starter was really nice as was the snack bar attendant. And that's where the good review ends. Thankfully I wasn't in the 100s of bunkers that they have, but ideally, you would want each bunker to have more than one rake per bunker. The fairways were somewhat bare and a few of the greens are not in shape. Spend a few extra $$ and play another course.

Played with my son in the morning. Staff load my bags up and got me right out to number one. The greens were a little slow but not bad for my son and I. It was a great course for my son to learn on. He enjoyed #13 signature hole. Also pro shop was having a 50% off sale on shirts.

I am part of a group that has been coming to Myrtle Beach for 38 years and have played Arcadian at least 20 times. I'm not sure what's happening here now but the conditions today were so bad that we told them we wouldn't be back.
We were told that they don't care about reviews these couple of weeks because they just airified their greens.
Let me tell you that for the money we paid it wasn't worth it. We've played Shaftesbury Glen twice already this week and it was amazing. As Usual. Don't waste your money playing Arcadian, we only played it because it's close to condo, that's not happening again.

I called to make a tee time and was told by the person over the phone that it would be $49 per person but when arrived it was $60, didn't mind paying the 11 dollars but the greens were not in good shape with dead spots and ground hog tunnels other than that the fairways and tee boxes were in great shape. My group of six was told to start on the tenth tee, and once we met the starter he instructed us that we could all play together which i found odd but went and started on the tenth tee anyway. when we finished our first hole a man named Dan approached us yelling and cursing about how we aren't suppose to play together. I approached Dan to try and talk to him and tell him the starter told us to go out but all he would say is, "I don't know where you guys are from but we don't do this sh*t here" and "We never send six or even five out at a time, i will have you guys kicked out if this sh*t happens again". He also said we were not keeping pace even though when we got to hole 11 we had to wait for the golfers in front of us to finish, If Dan would have simply came up up to us and said the starter made a mistake and i need you guys to split up I would have been OK with it because I thought it was strange anyway. I have been golfing for three years now and this is by far the worst I have ever been treated, I also had a first time golfer with me who said he will not be golfing anymore because he thinks this is how golf courses treat there guests. I'm in the Myrtle area very often with friends and will not be returning to this course and I will not recommend this place to anyone.

Enjoyed playing this course, especially signature holes #2 and #13. Fairways were awesome. While the greens were transitioning they were in good shape and putted true. Sand in bunkers was soft and fringe was full. Cart paths may need a little work, but not a deal breaker for me. Staff was great. Recommend you play this course.

Whilst the layout may be a little ordinary there was nothing ordinary about the greens. Some of the best we played on in our 2 week trip and should make other courses embarrassed when moaning about bad winters (Long Bay/True Blue).

Pro shop is out of date. Booked a package at 4 different course. Best greens we played while in Myrtle Beach. Staff was really friendly.

My first experience here was great but my second left much to be desired. The young man at the pro shop needs some much needed customer service help. We arrived on time for our tee time but had to use the facilities since we were just coming in from a 4-hour trip. He said I need you on the course now. He was so rude. I explained to him that of course, I was not the one playing considering I had on a dress and sandals. He proceeded to pick up the walkie talkie and tell the other guy that the party was here but he didn't know where the bodies where. I had just told him that they went to use the facility. How rude. That sealed it for me. My family will never play here again. I am not a child and I resent being talked to like I was ignorant. You all have lost a customer for life.

Not a bad course. Spoiled at 8:15 a.m. on hole #2 by the smartass ranger who asked if "I was color blind." Seriously, those were his first words as he stood over the fairway cart stake in the fairway as we finished putting. Apparently I exited the fairway in my cart behind the cart exit sign, but I traversed onto hardpan sand on the incorrect side of the green (20 yards from the nearest blade of grass). Had the course not been a goat track, I may have realized I was in an area where a cart should not be taken.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of a true Myrtle Beach golf original. Opened in 1974, the 6,800-yard, par-72 Arcadian Shores Golf Club has been a favorite of local and vacationing golfers alike, located almost directly at the midpoint of the 70-mile Grand Strand that spans parts of the North and South Carolina coasts and contains nearly 100 golf courses.
Located just a few miles north of Myrtle Beach, Arcadian Shores’ development is apparent – not just in the last four years, but the last 18 months. A handful of small renovations are making big differences.
