Azalea Sands Golf Club

Located in the heart of North Myrtle Beach, one might think that this Gene Hamm design would have an effervescent feel. However, this golf course provides a secluded and natural environment as no homes or condominiums can be found on the course.  Opened in 1972 and renovated in 2009, Azalea Sands Golf Club is proud to offer great course conditions along with affordable pricing for its many returning guests.

Measuring 6,902 yards from the back tees, Azalea Sands boasts a course rating of 72.5 and slope of 123. Despite the modest course rating from the tips, Azalea Sands can provide a challenge for the good player. The par-5 11th hole, considered the course’s signature hole, is an example of true risk-reward.  A reachable par 5 measuring 515 yards from the back tees, the second shot needs to be precise as two bunkers and a pond closely guard the green and will collect an errant shot. With challenging par 3s, Azalea Sands will more than likely make you use every club in your bag. With the addition of the Kilted Caddy Club and 8 inch cups Azalea Sands offers a fun and unique golf experience for golfers of every skill level.

Not very nice facility. Cart battery gave out.
by James (Pennsylvania Furnace, PA) - 04/12/2016
I thought the course was nice. Forgiving, considering the wind.
by Frank (Marlboro, NJ) - 04/04/2016
It was in good condition. Much better than last year.
by Bruce (Massillon, OH) - 03/27/2016
Is a course to play when you go through a long winter
by Jay (Silver Spring, MD) - 03/06/2016
Intersting old style course - with a few hidden water hazards. Fun to play.
by Bob (Elizabeth, PA) - 09/04/2015
The fairways were a little thin otherwise the course was pretty decent.
by Joseph (Sterling, VA) - 08/30/2015
Everything about the course and staff was great.

The greens are rough, a lot of tree being cut down. The cups on ll of the greens are ten inches round, I don't what that was about. If I would have known I would not have scheduled this course.
by Tom (Gloucester, MA) - 03/26/2015
This is the WORST course I have ever seen. I have gone to Myrtle Beach for 15 years played many dozens of rounds. I have always had a good experience and played on decent to superb conditions. The conditions were by far the worst I have ever seen anywhere. The fairways were a combination of bare dirt, mud and puddles. The greens were little better at least there were no puddles. I know that this is one of the oldest courses in the area but I didn't realize that it was built before the invention of drainage. I never had a shot were there was no mud on the ball. Even the cart paths were bad they were covered over in spots with pine cones and pine needles that haven't been disturbed in months or even years. There is a lot of neglect going on here. When I made the online reservation the course was priced similarly to others in the area. When I got there I felt like I had been swindled. This probably explains why the staff was so surly and didn't make much eye contact. The fact that they mentioned Oh by the way it's cart path only as I stepped on the gas to go to the first tee made things even worse. But the real icing on the cake was the 12 inch cups that they had on all the greens. This is something I may never get over. No one will be posting a round from here in the handicap computer. The course also offers young women caddies for $100 a round and the atmosphere in the bar is that of a Gentlemen's Club not a grillroom. Not a comfortable situation for a lot of people. The best thing they could do with this course is to sell it for condos or a shopping mall and use the money to send out refund checks to everyone who has played there lately. If this course has the last tee time left when you go online now you know why. Go for a walk instead.

This was the worst course we played all week by far! It should not even have been open. No re-seeding had taken place. The dead summer grass had been dyed green. It appeared to be a low class second rate operation! A disgrace to a great golf location like Myrtle Beach.
by Stacey (Highland, NY) - 06/06/2014
Nice layout but very slow and poor playing conditions but very cheap. I still had fun.

Okay but not up to expectations
by Laura (Duncan, SC) - 09/05/2013
The rough on this course was so thick we spent alot of time looking for our ball. The course itself was nice.
by Chad (Arlington, VA) - 05/30/2013
A nice course to play as an opening round. A player friendly course, great for young kids learning the game or older players that do not like to be pushed through a round.
by Joseph (Sayville, NY) - 05/13/2013
by Ken - 05/08/2013
Rates are different for everybody, coupons are a joke. there was hardly no grass or it was so short it wasnt playable. sand traps were ok and greens putted ok but had weeds growing. unless you get on here cheap, dont bother.
by Robert (Peckville, PA) - 05/01/2013
Not good
by Joe (Sarnia, ON) - 04/26/2013
Better courses are available for the money.
by Tim (Asheville, NC) - 04/08/2013

For the price a very good quality.
by Phillip (East Bend, NC) - 09/17/2012
Course was nice. Excellent value for the money. Pro shop was great. Starter didn't seem to really care much. Would have liked to have known there was no beverage cart so that I could have stocked up before leaving clubhouse. Course layout was kind of ho-hum, but again, you get what you pay for and I think it was well worth the price.
by Dustin (Mount Airy, NC) - 09/16/2012
Never played here before. Price was great!!! However the course was not in the best of condition. Greens were very slow, fuzzy and inconsistent. Some had a lot of dead patches. Fairways were in good shape. The rough looked as though it had not been touched in weeks. It was at least 5 inches thick. I lost a couple of shots just by hitting it thorough the fairway in the rough. Overall it was a decent course to play If you don't want to spend a lot of money.
by Janice (Hyattsville, MD) - 08/25/2012
My original tee time was cancelled due to rain. The next day there was a weekly group but management let me play first since I was leaving town next day. Much appreciated. Thanks.
by David (Uniontown, OH) - 08/21/2012
Great course. Challenging but not enough variety to make it excellent.
by William (New Castle, PA) - 08/21/2012
Friendly staff.
by Phillip (Columbus, OH) - 08/05/2012
Greens were in great shape and the bunkers were excellent. The starter had no personality, but the girls in the grill more than made up for that. Overall, it was a great golf experience and a super value at $26.00 for green fees and cart!
by Gary (Clayton, NC) - 08/04/2012
Simple course, not a lot to it.
by Stephen (Cedar Hill, MO) - 08/01/2012
We all enjoyed the course until it rained. My son-in-law and I really enjoyed it because we were 4 up making the turn.
by Mark - 06/23/2012
The worst conditioned course that I have played in over 250+ rounds in Myrtle Beach. The only good point was the price.
by Ron (Macon, GA) - 06/17/2012
The course design is very good but the greens were very bumpy and the grass was not full but in rows or line as if planted by a machine. I still enjoyed.
by Matthew (Concord, NC) - 06/05/2012
I would love to have known that the greens had just been punched. That made my experience there a very unmemorable one. I do not plan on playing there again anytime soon.
by Jody (Chicago, IL) - 05/31/2012
Did not know, was not informed, the entire course - fairways & greens - had been aerated. Course is older and not in great shape anyway, this made it pretty bad. Would not return to this course.
by Frank (Lady Lake, FL) - 05/22/2012
Rain in the Myrtle Beach area caused the course to be cart path only on all holes. Played with 81-year-old neighbor who was extremely uncomfortable walking. No fault of the course.
by John (Columbia, SC) - 05/22/2012
A lot of weeds in rough. Some dead spots in some fairways. A lot of large cut trees still lying around course. Tee/greens real nice. Ball rolls smooth. Price range should be around $30-35.
by Joseph (Memphis, TN) - 05/17/2012
Tees & greens were good.

Good, fair course, greens a little slow. Overall a good playing experience. I played with some well matched, quality playing partners.
by Jesse (Bronxville, NY) - 04/25/2012
It was cheap but good.
by Waylon (Greenville, S.C.) - 04/07/2012
Had a great outing with my 9-year-old daughter and with the wide-open fairways she felt confident in teeing off. I found the holes to be challenging enough for my style of play and the greens to be in great shape. The staff was polite from the moment we arrived and rivals that of more expensive courses that I have played. I am looking forward to visiting again and playing this course.
by Mark - 04/05/2012
Wow. What a pleasant surprise. We have played golf (in Myrtle Beach) for years but never played (at this course). The staff was great. The greens, fairways and tees were great. The rough needed a little more water but the layout was fabulous. For my game, this course was great. We really enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We are going back later this week. Well worth the money.
by Rick (Toccoa, Ga.) - 04/03/2012
I enjoyed the golf. Was disappointed there was no driving range. Starter was a bit grumpy and impatient but there were a lot of people going off at the same time. This also made play somewhat slow. But for $42 in a resort town at the start of spring, I can't complain too much. I would play it again. And if you are going to stay awhile there is a $50 membership that ties to several area courses for $30 to $40 plus some free play. Budget golf at its best!
by Jack - 03/24/2012
Driven by this course 100 times, finally gave it a try with couple women who don't golf much, and was pleasantly surprised. Fairways and greens were in decent shape, a few water holes made it interesting, too.
by Matthew (Polk, Ohio) - 03/12/2012
Very poor course, especially in light of the options available in Myrtle Beach.
by Frederick (McLeansville, N.C.) - 03/08/2012
Great weather, course was in good shape.
by Kenneth (Hedgesville, W. Va.) - 03/07/2012
Fun course.
by Nathaniel (Sicklerville, N.J.) - 02/28/2012
Most local and snow birds walk the course. Unless I missed it, that is not an option when booking online. Water hazards are well marked, and along with sand traps adds a degree of complexity to an otherwise easy course. Nice sand traps!
by Frank - 02/25/2012
No grass, no range, dirty clubhouse - old golf course - play it for free - wouldn't pay a dime more.
by Patrick (Columbia, S.C.) - 02/19/2012
Old course with an old attitude. Dog track for a low price and that is all. Play only if you need to fill a couple of hours.
by Mike (Graham, N.C.) - 02/10/2012
Our foursome enjoyed our entire experience. It was a great day made by your staff. Thanks.
by C. Philip (Elkton, Md.) - 12/05/2011
Nice course, good shape.
by Susan (Atlantic Beach, N.C.) - 12/02/2011
Odd design. Par fives very short and par threes very long. Hazards on fairways were ugly. One par three bunkered so majority of golfers cannot get a greenie.
by Joe (Guilford, N.Y.) - 11/08/2011
OK - not as good as other two we played.
by Ray (Eden, N.Y.) - 11/06/2011
Greens were too slow. Rough was too tough to hit out of.
by Dane (Saline, Mich.) - 11/04/2011
Course wasn't in as good a condition as we'd hoped. Not as good as the other courses we've played this trip. Not bad, but somewhat mediocre. Would pass playing again as there are just too many other courses in better shape.
by Frank (Honea Path, S.C.) - 11/01/2011
First time back in years and found the course to be as nice as remembered. Great service from the staff and a lot of fun on a course with hidden challenges.
by Ron (Youngstown, Ohio) - 10/23/2011
Played the back nine first ... A no-no for me.
by Charlie & Ellen - 09/19/2011
My wife and I visited Myrtle Beach to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, we decided to play this course and we were glad we did. The staff was very friendly and so are the other golfers. We met and played with two other golfers, Ed and John and they were very helpful to us on the course. This course is easy to play and it is well-maintained. We will be back and hoping to see Ed and John again.
by Todd - 09/04/2011
It's a good course for the price. Tees, fairways and greens were in good shape. A lot of the bunkers did not have rakes. I would go back.
by David (Landisville, Penn.) - 08/27/2011
Greens were slow compared to the other courses we played this week.
by Brian (Lima, Ohio) - 08/20/2011
Good course ... staff and conditions made the round very enjoyable. Great round at a great price!
by Joe - 08/08/2011
Beach golf, will not include in a golf trip, but OK for an afternoon round close to hotel, greens were good, fairways were OK, staff is very friendly especially the young girl from Buffalo at the restaurant who loves her job and the people.
by fltlnder - 08/08/2011
Played in the afternoon on August 4th. Pace of play was slow due to several groups in front of us with kids. Course in decent condition - except the greens which were very shaggy and slow. It was hot and humid and there was no water on the first (back) 9. Several traps without rakes - which meant lots of footprints. Some yardages were way off - Par 5 11th - says 515 from blues - more like 440. Course layout was OK.
by Robert (Ruby, S.C.) - 07/29/2011
Course was way too crowded - had to wait 5 to 15 minutes between every shot. Took two of us 4 hrs. 30 minutes to play 18 holes. It usually takes around 2 hrs. to play 18.
by Jim (Tonawanda, N.Y.) - 07/01/2011
Was not real happy with the fire they had burning on the back 9. Had to tee off with lots of smoke blowing in our eyes.
by Charles (Durham, N.C.) - 06/27/2011
Very slow play; even with 7:30 tee time. Challenging course. Staff was friendly. Course in good condition even after storm from previous evening.
by Ken (Jackson, Mo.) - 06/06/2011
I wish I would have known that the greens had been recently aerated. They were a turn-off for our group.
by Neil (Kingston, Ontario) - 04/12/2011
Good straightforward course, excellent warm up for the week's play. Very pleasant staff, couldn't have been more helpful with early morning inclement weather.
by Don (N. Royalton, Ohio) - 04/06/2011
Greens were bumpy.
by Sue (Whippleville, N.Y.) - 03/23/2011
Don't waste your time. No marshals, letting out groups of 5 at busy times. Very unfortunate.
by Carl (Canal Fulton, Ohio) - 03/15/2011
10 years ago it was our first course played in Myrtle and it is always nice to revisit an old friend. Just wish I could putt better.
by Nick (Ironton, Ohio) - 02/08/2011
The staff was excellent. The course is okay for being the oldest course in Myrtle Beach. We will most likely not play again on our future trips mainly because we like to play different courses each year. I would recommend to first-time MB golfers.
by Glenn (Wilson, N.C.) - 04/27/2010
Played before, fairly familiar with the course. Staff is very friendly, accommodating and helpful. Course is a good layout, challenging without being frustrating. Always a very pleasant experience.
by Rick - 03/27/2010
Poor playing conditions - heard the excuses about bad winter weather but other courses we played were nowhere near this poor. Did have great service in clubhouse following round though, believe the gals name was Kelly.
