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.

The greens were nice the staff was very helpful fairways were in good shape.

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.
8 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.

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!
6 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.
8 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.
8 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.
7 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.
10 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

The course and especially the greens are in fantastic shape. Excellent quality golf. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
