Blackmoor Golf Club

Less than midway through a round at Blackmoor Golf Club, a good number of players ask themselves why they didn’t try the other approach to No. 8.

Standing on the tee box of arguably the most distinctive hole, a straight-line shot toward the green creates an internal battle against the secondary option, where the fairway is wider and extremely accessible even with an off-center shot. The first option shaves upwards of 100 yards off the total distance but requires a trek through deep grass and a narrow corridor.

The second leads to a dogleg with a full 90-degree turn.

Consider this the highlight of Gary Player’s lone Grand Strand signature course. Also consider it part of one major reason golfers keep coming back.

“It’s fair to all skill levels,” head professional Paul Fastenau said. “We do grab a good bit of that local play because it doesn’t beat them up too bad.”

The relatively shorter course has earned nods from various senior and women’s groups in the past, as Blackmoor measures 5,700 yards for the forward tees and approximately 4,800 for the ladies. But much like No. 8, even lower handicappers and longer hitters will find a challenge.

Played with my regular foursome in a Veteran's tournament at Blackmoor - conditions were terrific. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were well maintained. Plenty of doglegs. If you are playing here, take a look at the aerials to determine strategy.

We enjoyed our first time at Blackmoor. My threesome has been playing courses across the grand strand for 12 years, and we found Blackmoor to be a good course with a couple of notable holes among a bunch of others that are like the rest of the area. The conditioning was good, but the staff were the real value: great people who wanted us to have a great time. When you compare that with the attractive fees, we found Blackmoor a very good value.
by Timothy - 10/18/2017
The greens are the best they have ever been. Course was a little wet because of heavy rain the day before but still playable. Nice staff who helped us get out early and quick turn on the back nine.
by Bryan Powell - 03/03/2017
Thoroughly enjoyable day. From the moment we arrived at the bag drop we were made to feel welcome. The Pro shop, Grill and Starter took time out to talk to us and give us some background to the course and the lay out. A very tricky tight course and you had to make sure you were in the right position at the dog leg to get to the green. If I had one complaint it would be the lack of a 2nd ladies tee. My wife gave me a thorough beating off those forward tees and I ended up cooking the evening meal.
by Timothy - 02/17/2017
Course is in the best shape it has been in over the last 10 years. Tees were good and greens are a little slow but very consistent. The staff was great and helpful. The only downside was the lack of water coolers on the back nine. Water can be helpful on hot days.
by Paul Moncman - 02/12/2017
The course advisors were quite entertaining!
by Mark - 12/24/2016
Nice layout, great condition and friendly staff. Will always make this a stop when I come to this part of Myrtle Beach.
by beausoleillouise - 12/08/2016
This course is great shape. Since hurricane we have played many...none of them were as in good condition than Blackmoor. Greens perfects...all of them! A must play...nice design...Friendly staff. Marshall on the course to avoid slow play.
by Tim (Zanesville, OH) - 11/18/2016
Course was in great shape and staff could not have been more friendly.
by Art (Mountain Top, PA) - 11/15/2016
Unfortunately it rained but the course was in good shape.
by Scott (Schaumburg, IL) - 11/02/2016
Had played it years ago. Considering the hurricane a few weeks ago it was in very good condition
by Robert (Louisburg, NC) - 11/01/2016
Several dog legs, several unique holes with greens hidden or even a split fairway. Greens were in great shape.
by Ted - 10/23/2016
Nice variety of holes. Some forced carries & a few water holes. Subtle breaks on the greens that makes them hard to read but rolled smooth. Staff was very nice.
by Derek (Davidson, NC) - 10/19/2016
Great greens despite moisture from hurricane. Lots of doglegs. Staff was top-notch.
by Nicholas (Cortland, NY) - 10/19/2016
Once again, the superintendent got the course in playable shape after the hurricane. Some parts of holes under water due to flooding.
by Denis (Saint Bruno, QC) - 10/16/2016
Surprising course. Ttime of play. 5:45 is simply too much. The Marshall did nothing to sanction the group In front of us.
by Keith (Lawrenceville, PA) - 10/12/2016
Great course looking forward to playing it again.
by Carol - 09/29/2016
Blackmoor is a great golf course. Today was our first time to play it and we were pleasantly surprised. Loved using the new golfboards. They really added to the experience. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to play again when we come back to Myrtle Beach next year.
by Gary (Englewood, NJ) - 09/17/2016
Nice staff, wonderful course set up.
by Gerald (Burtonsville, MD) - 09/16/2016
Nothing too memorable either good or bad.
by Michael (Staunton, VA) - 08/13/2016
Great staff and great layout. Greens very good for being punched recently.
by Roger (Arlington Heights, VA) - 06/10/2016
Terrible condition. Fairways were more dirt than grass. Extremely poor drainage.
by Claude - 05/23/2016
This course was in great shape and the staff is great. I love the layout. It is worth to put on your golf holiday. Will play it again this week.
by John (Chesapeake, VA) - 05/11/2016
Excellent golf experience; great service; course in excellent condition; full course but no waiting - nice pace of play.
by Ronald (Carolina Shores, NC) - 05/09/2016
Nice condition, greens much better than expected. Really enjoyed the course.
by Gary (Ravena, NY) - 05/04/2016
Great all around experience.
by Don (Brimfield, MA) - 04/22/2016
5 dog leg right, open play.
by Al (Stoney Creek, ON) - 04/06/2016
Course was in good condition and the staff very helpful and friendly.
by David (Auburn, ME) - 03/28/2016
Great condition. Greens were a little thin. Ball rolled good.
by David (Manchester, CT) - 03/25/2016
Course was in great shape except for three or four greens that still haven't recovered from the heavy rains they experienced late last year. Enjoyed the course.
by John (Cabot, VT) - 03/22/2016
Received a rain check. The pro staff could not have been nicer.i will now play Blackmore every time I return to SC which is twice a year.
by Tom (Plainville, CT) - 01/17/2016
The greens were nice the staff was very helpful fairways were in good shape.
by JJ - 12/27/2015
Played Blackmoor for the first time today and I would say it is a must play! Granted I would not play there after large amounts of rain but if dry the course has great character with each hole being its own. The staff was very friendly and asking if they could do anything to make your experience more enjoyable. Overall the price point is awesome and a great time.
by James (Fredericksburg, VA) - 11/17/2015
The course was saturated with water and very close to unplayable. Grass in fairways was 3+ inches and balls plugged and difficult to locate. Three in our party of six after front nine and received rain-checks for nine holes each. Three of us played through 13 and quit due to playing conditions. Would LOVE to come back and play when conditions more favorable. Layout excellent.
by Kenneth (Lynbrook, NY) - 11/09/2015
Tee times too close together. Felt rushed and crowded. Also, fairway grass far too high. Can't find the ball after a nice tee shot in the middle of the fairway. Frustrating!
by Penny (Las Vegas, NV) - 10/17/2015
The course was really beautiful. But since it just got a lot of rain, it was wet and grass was thick so difficult to find your ball - even on really great shots so was very frustrating.
by Charles (West Greenwich, RI) - 09/22/2015
The folks were great especially the starter, great guy made you feel at home. The course was in great shape, especially the greens. One par 4 was made into a par 3, not sure if permanent but I would state that on the web site.
by Kevin (Suwanee, GA) - 09/18/2015
Very friendly staff, course was in excellent condition. Road construction has one hole changed to temporary par 3.
by Peter (St. Catharines, ON) - 09/17/2015
I would like to have known that the rough had not been cut for several days as it was very frustrating when you could not find a golf ball even if it had gone off fairway by as much as a yard.
by Robert - 09/10/2015
The staff was polite and efficient. The clubhouse is comparatively small but comfortable. Greens and fairways are exceptional. The grounds crew stopped what they were doing and pulled the mowers out of the fairways to let us go through, that is not something you see at all the MB courses. Of course we will be going back. Not sure why the bar slides turned red, either a bad design or lousy programming. They should be green
by Don - 09/09/2015
The course and especially the greens are in fantastic shape. Excellent quality golf. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
by Michael (Manahawkin, NJ) - 08/25/2015
Greeted by friendly and helpful staff. Course was in great condition. The greens rolled fast and true and were still able to hold approach shots. The course is fair as the fairways are wide enough in most places to hold slightly errant shots. A very good golf experience I would recommend to all levels of players.
by Gary - 08/11/2015
Blackmoor is always in great shape every year. They had the best greens we played all week and the friendliest and most welcoming staff. That's why we play here every year.
by Gerald (Farmingdale, NY) - 08/08/2015
Should have been told the course had been aerated recently and one hole had been changed along the main road. Fairways should have been cut, otherwise I enjoyed the layout very much.
by Sid (Greensboro, NC) - 07/29/2015
Blackmoor was a very good course in excellent shape w excellent staff in the pro shop.
by Wade (Okatie, SC) - 07/26/2015
The course was in good condition and we enjoyed it very much. We were confused by the cart guys. They loaded our clubs and we thought they would unload and clean the clubs. Our plans were to tip them at the end of the round but they didn't come to the cart so we unloaded ourselves. Sorry cart guys!!
by Jordan (Rutherfordton, NC) - 07/15/2015
Staff was friendly I just selected 2 golfers I would have like to have know that they were putting us with 2 other golfers I'm glad they did because they were very nice I would have just like to have known. Also they were cutting the tees and some of the fairways while we were playing it was okay because they would get out of our way but I still think they should have a couple of hours where the course is closed so they can get everything done.
by Ervin (Rock Hill, SC) - 06/25/2015
This course was the best experience of the week. It was so nice to play where you are appreciated. From the minute we got there until we left they made us feel special. The man taking water to golfers all over the course was a nice touch. Although one hole next to the road had to be changed to a par three it didn't make a difference. We will play this course whenever we come down. I cannot tell you how well we were treated. It was great.
by John (Goose Creek, SC) - 05/25/2015
Liked the playability of the course. The fairways were a bit tight.
by Timothy (Wexford, PA) - 05/21/2015
Greens were spotty in a lot of places. intrusion of 707 into the course impacts experience in a negative way.
by Phillip (Southampton, UK) - 05/21/2015
Reasonable course, got 37 Stableford points so fairly happy!
by James (Fort Myers, FL) - 05/15/2015
Unfortunately the course had been saturated with a huge storm. Layout was good.
by Steve (Bluff City, TN) - 05/12/2015
Enjoy course layout very much. Greens were not in good shape this year.
by Tom (Myrtle Beach, SC) - 05/06/2015
Course was in great shape. Great tee boxes and greens. No need for rangers in the middle of the fairway. Cart girl was great. Maybe a cooler on the side of the carts. Friendly staff.
by Brian (Pawleys Island, SC) - 05/04/2015
Liked the course layout. Greens were in poor condition. Speed of play was slow with no intervention. Will probably play again.
by Joshua (Windsor Locks, CT) - 05/01/2015
Very challenging course, they had us start on the back which is much tougher than the front. Greens weren't in the best shape yet, but that will change soon I'm sure. Lots of blind 2nd shots and dogleg rights, if you're a draw player you may want to Look elsewhere. Overall pretty good, bring a decent game with you that day.
by Tim (Myrtle Beach, SC) - 04/27/2015
Me and my friends play Blackmoor weekly and it is by far the best at the beach. The reason starts with the staff, just as friendly as they come. Paul the golf pro is simply the easiest to work with and always there to lend a helping hand. His leadership around the pro shop and bag drop spills over to the rest of the staff. The course is in excellent shape, fairways nice and plush and greens are just as nice. Lots of courses could take notes on how this course is managed. Simply the best.
by Robert (Philadelphia, PA) - 04/26/2015
Blackmoor was the first course that allowed carts on fairways this week. There was lots of rain the days prior. Tees and fairways were in good shape. Two greens were a little sparse. The other greens ran true. Lots of 90 degree holes made you think of where to put the ball for the next shot. I enjoyed the round for the price.
by Frank - 04/20/2015
Kind of a quirky layout, but not bad to play. However, this year - their greens were not in good shape, in fact about 5 of them were very bad due to some black fungus or winter rot. That being said, pro shop staff was courteous, grill lady allowed us to watch the final round of the Masters. But overall, our group of 20 said not to schedule this place again.
by Barry (Bradenton, FL) - 04/09/2015
Lovely course. Player assistant made no effort to be friendly.
by Matt (Liverpool, NY) - 04/09/2015
Very friendly staff.
by Nicholas (Cortland, NY) - 04/06/2015
Course in great shape. Very friendly course, but have to be accurate. Other golfers were nasty.
by Michael (Charlotte, NC) - 04/02/2015
Course has doglegs right which match my shot shape.
by Brian (Columbia, PA) - 03/28/2015
Terrific starter, staff very accommodating & friendly.
by Leo (Perth, ON) - 03/18/2015

(Would like to have known prior to play) that it was going to be so cold!! LOL.
by David (Grove City, OH) - 11/25/2014
by Gary (WI) - 11/24/2014
Nice layout, a shot maker's kind of course, very playable.
by Tom (Arden, NC) - 11/21/2014
Too many holes with short doglegs requiring target tee shots making it difficult if not played before.
by Mike (Cincinnati, OH) - 11/19/2014
For those who have never played this course before, I think the pamphlet showing hole configurations and distances should be provided at no extra charge.
by Terry (North Olmsted, OH) - 11/19/2014
Very good.
by Harold (Windsor, ON) - 11/17/2014
Very good.
by Rob (Hampton, ON) - 11/17/2014
by Ben (Chantilly, VA) - 11/15/2014
The fairways were very wet making the course play longer for us old folks too proud to move to the forward tees. :)
by Pierre (Tecumseh, ON) - 11/15/2014
Good service.
by Michael (Maryville, TN) - 11/12/2014
Very good.

by Hank (Bethany Beach, DE) - 11/11/2014

Some quirky holes and pin locations. Felt the course was very gimmicky.
by David (Lebanon, PA) - 11/08/2014
by Barry (Southport, NC) - 11/07/2014
Double tees so the back nine was absurdly slow. When we asked the ranger he said that this was typical and we should get over it. The course is broken up and tricked out. The greens were very bumpy. Not a keeper.
by Mark (Endicott, NY) - 11/06/2014
Consistent course qualities throughout.
by Bill (Gallipolis, OH) - 11/05/2014
I think this course is always wet but my group loves it.
by Roger (Yonkers, NY) - 11/05/2014
Played it many times, only problem was the drainage on bad weather days.
by Brian (Newcastle, ON) - 11/04/2014
Loved this course, the attendants and starter were a lot of fun and kept us entertained.
by Peter (Laconia, NH) - 11/03/2014
by Angie (St. Augustine, FL) - 11/03/2014
It was so much fun to play.
by Cook (Laconia, NH) - 11/03/2014
Very good.
by William (Cranford, NJ) - 11/02/2014
A forgiving course. Not too difficult to find your ball if it is out of the fairway.
by Gary (Hagersville, ON) - 11/01/2014
Great course.
by Dave - 10/31/2014
As a recent transplant to the area, I have played here many times. The fairways and greens are always in great shape. The staff are friendly and professional. Recent short notice request for lesson from head pro Paul fixed a chronic problem and had me ready for next day tournament.
by Bruce (Richmond Hill, ON) - 10/28/2014
I really enjoy this course. Too bad they had to change the par four to a par three where the new highway is being built. Can they save this hole? This was a challenging par four for me and losing it changes the character of this nine.
by Rick (Dundas, ON) - 10/28/2014
Very disappointed with marshall pushing us when we were not slowing down anyone. In fact on the 18th hole we waited almost 15 minutes before watching our friends behind us arrive at the 18th hole. The marshall was not friendly at all. Enjoyed the golf course, hopefully the marshall cheers up.
by Greg (Raleigh, NC) - 10/28/2014
They really let this course go down hill .. it used to be great ... what a mess.
