The photos don't lie - this is a pretty good course and clubhouse, BUT a disappointing experience overall for our annual buddies trip. Negatives include: can't take your cart to the range which is a hike from the clubhouse; you pay a deposit on the bag for your range balls and you have to return the bag to the shop to get your deposit back (!), numerous holes with unmarked water that nabbed us during our first round here, and very inconsistent greens, with a fast one followed by a slow one, etc..The staff seemed nice, but there were too few of them and they were overwhelmed by a full tee sheet. We won't be back because there are too many better options on the Grand Strand.

Overall it was a great experience!

I have played this course when it was in much better shape. Very wet fairways, Tee Boxes shaggy greens ok but very shaggy around the edges. It is a nice course but it needs to dry out & get some maintenance going. There are many course's in the area that are in excellent shape & better priced.

Very wet conditions.

Course seems to hold water longer than it should. Good course for all levels. Fair layout. Nice quick greens.
by Andy - 11/24/2015
Course was fun to play. A little wet with all the rain, but still in good shape. Greens rolled nicely. Unfortunately, the golf club staff was not trained in customer service. Pretty poor attitudes. Good thing we didn't have to see them again after we teed off! I'd go back to play the course, not to see the staff.
by Glenn (Charleston, SC) - 11/13/2015
Range was too wet and should have been closed. Course was very wet as well, but still playable in most areas, and was cart path only. Made for a long day, but I'm sure the course would be very nice if we had not seen so much rain lately. BL - not the staff's fault or an indication of the normal course conditions. We've just had too much rain in the last 30 days in SC. We liked the course layout.
by Joe P. - 10/15/2015
I was pleasantly surprised that the course was so dry after all the rain lately. I thoroughly enjoyed putting on greens that gave me a chance to make every putt if I hit them on line. The course was challenging enough to test all of my skills. The staff was very friendly, and the girl in the grill told me they had just started a new menu. I had one of their specialty burgers and it was great (I think it was called the Canadian prime minister). Highly recommend.

(Would like to have known prior to play about) GPS in carts or not.

The greens were wonderful, fun to putt on and the roll was great. Played the front in an hour and a half, the back took 2 hrs and 45 min because they double tee. That sucks when you go early to get done early.
by Allan - 07/02/2015
Lightning fast, and true greens. Fun! Straightforward track that is hard to score on because of these excellent greens. Keep it straight. You don't need to bomb it here. A nice variety of holes. In very good condition right now. $7.50 for a bag of range balls is a bit steep. Staff very nice.

This course has to be one of the best-kept secrets in the Myrtle Beach area. Not affiliated with the big conglomerates like MBN, it works hard to please its players. Found the greens to be some of the best we played on all week. Great fairways, and enjoyed the challenge of the holes. Saw grounds staff raking bunkers by hand. They were also good. Good practice range, houses nearby at times, but seldom really came into play. Played in warm, dry conditions, and loved the bounce and roll. (I live in the damp, rainy Northeast) We plan to return to this course for our annual spring trip.
by James (Slidell, LA) - 06/29/2015
Average player friendly design, priced right.
by Timothy - 01/28/2015
Staff was friendly and helpful. We played a day after heavy rain so it was cart path only. The course layout is nice but it holds the water and doesn't drain very well. The greens were good but the wet fairways made for long holes. Overall, I enjoyed the day and will return. No grill on Sundays in January.
by Alan (Woodbridge, VA) - 10/16/2014
This course seemed to be slightly below average compared to other courses that we have played in Myrtle Beach. Pro Shop coupons were not used by anyone in our party due to purchase limitations and lack of real value.
by Rich - 10/12/2014
This course is actually trying to attract golfers. They give you a solid lunch and an excellent golf track. If you like fast greens you haven't at International Club. The layout is interesting however homes/condo come into play. The bang for your block with the passport discount card is exceptional. I was also impressed with the pace of play. The Pro shop could use more merchandise and higher-quality clothing.

Pro shop had trouble finding my tee time. Took about 5 minutes to verify. There was a frost delay in morning. My tee time was12:08. Starter was thoroughly confused. He even said he was to the golfers waiting to tee off, about 15 in number at 12:15. He skipped over our group. We had to remind him we were still waiting. He asked our names and times at least 3 times. We finally teed off. Course was not in good shape. More dirt than grass. Only green on the course were tee boxes. Cart paths only. Not a good experience. Will not play there again.

We played this on 1/12/14 and it was a swamp. Nothing the course could do because of heavy rain the day before. There is no place to drain the water. Staff was excellent and we got out a little early. Layout can be tough so choose the proper tees for your game.

by Jeff - 11/12/2013
Played 11/2 and course was in great shape. It was extremely wet due to a heavy overnight rain. I played a bigger name course the day before and this course more than holds its own. I loved the layout and pace of play. Starters and the marshals were courteous. I did not utilize the grill so I cant truly grade it. I will definitely play again.
by Gregory (Chambersburg, PA) - 08/05/2013
Nice course layout. Enjoyed playing it. Wish it wasn't cart path only when we played.
by Dale (Decatur, IL) - 07/30/2013
Fair course and very playable. Didn't like to have to walk and carry your clubs to and from range from pro shop. Would certainly play again.
by Steve - 05/20/2013
Terrible experience. The guy running the proshop (old bald dude)is worthless. He was talking on the phone while several people were waiting to pay. He did not make an effort to get off of a personal call (I think he was talking to his boyfriend). I heard him speak to the ladies before me. He is very rude to women and should not be allowed to interact with the public. Just a terrible experience. Course was in ok shape but very wet. I asked for a rain check at the turn since the course was so wet. I could see that it was being damaged with play. I was told by the same ass that rain checks were not allowed unless it was a thunder storm.

Not one of the top courses we played. Good course but not tops.
by Philip (Farmington, CT) - 04/22/2013
I would have liked to know what the course normally charges. It appears MBG overcharged me about $25. I could have called there and played for $64. Unlikely, I'll use MBG again.

Played in the wind and rain and still enjoyed it ! Great layout and greens rolled great. Solid 3/5 Star course and very affordable. Definitely will play again

Great fast greens. Fairways too dry.
by Michael (Charlotte, NC) - 09/18/2012
Course plays very tight, definitely a placement shot course. Greens were fast!
by Joe (Smithfield, NC) - 09/02/2012
The course was saturated due to excessive rain and was simply not playable. Water was standing in the fairways and on the tee boxes. But because it was not raining at our tee time, we could not get a rain check. We did get a rain check for 9 holes as it started raining when we were on hole #11.
by Jeffery (Surfside Beach, SC) - 07/11/2012
Greens were perfect and consistent, tee boxes and fairways were very good. It's an all-around great course that's difficult but fair. I wish I'd have known there is a local discount before I made tee time online.
by David (Charleston, WV) - 07/03/2012
Nice course with several challenging holes. Well maintained with a nice clubhouse. Nice round ... Blackmoor had several more memorable holes but certainly a good value course to add to your list.
by Gary (Coraopolis, Penn.) - 04/19/2012
by Jack - 03/10/2012
Not good, all traps need a lot of work, not raked and hard as a rock. Greens weren't the best, but staff was nice ... not a replay.
by Art - 02/08/2012
This is a hidden gem. Fairways and greens are in excellent condition. Played it 2/2/2012 with a local for $29.00. I've played 15 to 20 courses in the area. This is a do-over.
by Doug (Huntington, W. Va.) - 09/06/2011
Course was in great shape. It was late in the afternoon and there was no cart attendant or starter. Had to ask the pro shop attendant when and where to start. She didn't know. Said she would find someone to help us. Took 15 minutes for someone to come out and take our ticket and start our group.
by Louise (Quebec, Canada) - 08/26/2011
Nice course. Good conditions. Excellent service from staff.
by John (Pawleys Island, S.C.) - 08/21/2011
Not a bad course, just check that it didn't rain the night before you play! Didn't tell us cart paths only on all 18 until after we paid and starter sent us out. Should have offered us swim fins, or a pull cart. Every trap had 6 of water, fairways like swamps, forget the rough. When I complained staff got argumentative. Got to be the worst drainage on MB.
by Kimberly (Romney, W. Va.) - 08/06/2011
Golf course was awesome and all the employees were fantastic. Here is the issue I have, and I should have checked with the golf course first. Call the golf course first instead of getting tee times on a Web site like this. The rate would have been $27 instead of $42 had I called the course first. It would have also included lunch. Always call the course first for better rates than going on an Internet site and booking. You will pay higher rates for this.
by Joseph (Massapequa Park, N.Y.) - 08/05/2011
One of the best courses I have played in MB. Greens were consistent and rolled true. Course was in great shape and service was great. A must-play in MB area.
by JB - 07/08/2011
Played 7/3/11. Course was in great shape. Greens rolled true. Tight fairways but fair. Clubhouse was great. Will play again definitely.
by Keith - 06/29/2011
Excellent value for your hard-earned money. Course is in very good shape right now. Greens are fast and rolling well. Don't be afraid to put the driver away on some holes, especially 4th. But most holes, you can let it fly. I play here every year and it's always a challenge.
by Susan (Jamaica Plain, Mass.) - 04/16/2011
I would like to have known that the course is lined with houses.
by Leonard (Walton, N.Y.) - 04/14/2011
Very enjoyable layout and good conditioning ... might have been in better shape last year.

The International is a tight course, but very playable; trouble is found easily and if you are at all wild with tee shots, you will most likely be hitting into someone's yard or onto their roof. My overall impression is favorable for the $$ paid. The greens were fast but splotchy, and the fairways were in good shape. Thanks.
by Tony (Fairless Hills, Penn.) - 06/10/2010
We chose to play the International Club due to ratings that were provided on this online service. I found the course to be very playable from all tees as my father is 83 and now plays from the forward tees, and it allowed him to play the course comfortably. I found the GPS on the cart to be very helpful in determining distances although the lack of a hole layout would have been a nice touch. I wish I had purchased a course layout to assist on a couple of holes.
Most importantly was the fact that the course was laid out to allow all players to enjoy the course. I found several holes challenging, and also a few that seem to be repeat holes from a design standpoint. Bunkering was sufficient, and although only in one I did notice that several of the bunkers did not have enough new, soft sand in them. For players who struggle with this part of the game that would have given them a more difficult time than needed and should be improved.
The practice range was good and providing free balls was certainly a plus. The practice green was more than ample, allowing for several players to practice without stepping on each other.
IF there was any complaint other than the sand it would be a few of the tees had very uneven areas, making it necessary to tee with the ball above or below one's feet. Hey, the game is hard enough as it is.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone. It would provide a very nice, memorable day out.

Decent price for the type of course.
by Kevin (Holbrook, N.Y.) - 03/06/2010
Cart path only is always an issue due to some old injuries but it could not be helped due to the prior heavy rain.
by Timothy (Upton, Mass.) - 02/19/2010
Nice course but slow because of a frost delay. They did a shotgun start but they have a regular league which we got behind and their play was like a death march. No ranger to move them along. It was the slowest round I've ever played down here.
by Patricia (Greenville, S.C.) - 12/05/2009
Are the greens always that color?
by David (Harrogate, Tenn.) - 11/26/2009

Played Nov. 15, 2008: My wife and I played the International Club. We were paired with two gentlemen from Canada who had similar handicaps to ours. The grill staff was very friendly and helpful. We had lunch after our round and the food preparation was excellent.
by Timothy Spillane - 02/18/2009
Commented on February 11, 2009: My wife and I played this course on 2/9/09. Staff was nice but we were a little late getting out because of the slow play with the double booking. The greens had been painted but putted true and played well. I would definitely return.

Played May 6, 2008: International Club used their GPS to alert us that the cart-path-only rule had been lifted.
