Long Bay Golf Club

Long Bay Golf Club is outside the central zone of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina’s golf hub. But one name typically outweighs the short driving distance to the Longs course.

“A lot of people who come here mention Jack,” head professional Jason Mitchell said. “They want to take their picture with the statue out front.”

In this case, he’s talking about Jack Nicklaus. One of the true legends of the game was really just coming into his architectural element when he and his company laid out Long Bay in 1988. In the nearly three decades since it opened, the course has proved its mettle, both in terms of a rigid design that makes players think and the ability to provide varying opinions as to which should be considered the signature hole.

There’s the par-four No. 10, of course, where an oversized waste bunker hugs both sides of the fairway before coming together in front of an offset green. A few holes later, the island green par three is just as visually stunning. It’s about the best problem a course can have, and something that more than offsets the bit of distance from the heart of the area to another of Nicklaus’ gem.

Had a great time playing Long Bay Club. The greens and fairways were in great shape. The pro and staff were very friendly and accommodating. I look forward to coming back on my next trip.

Great Course bring your "A" game. Staff was very good and pace of play moved along, but not rushed.

Great course. A must play. Played after a good deal of rain. Bunkers were good. course conditions great. Beautiful holes esp 7,10,18 and all 4 par 3's. Paid 48 hour rate of 49 and my son (11) played for free. 7:38 am tee time and course mostly empty finished in 3.5 hours. Staff friendly and cart lady thanked us for being out playing. With all the choices will be back to play this course soon.

I wanted to just create a quick review to tell everyone that despite the previous reviews earlier this year this course was near perfect. Tee boxes, greens, fairways were all in pristine condition and I highly recommend this course. I played despite it raining .75 inches in the matter of 40 minutes, so wet conditions were to be expected. By the third hole any standing water was gone, and the course was easily playable. Please don't let the old reviews scare you, go out and play this course you will not be disappointed.

Course was in great shape...not sure what happened a month or two ago based on some bad reviews but when I played the greens were in great shape. Fairways were in good shape, a little burnt out in spots but that was to be expected with a couple straight weeks near 100 degrees. Definitely was well worth the money which was very reasonable to start off with.

Very nice Jack Nicklaus layout, challenging but fair course. The fairways and tee-boxes were very well maintained, the some of the greens had spots but nothing dramatic. We loved playing the course, especially some of the par 3's and definitely #14 are highlights. If you're in the area make sure to play it.

Terrible condition. In 20 years of Myrtle Beach golf trips we have never played a course in such bad condition. Huge disappointment. Why can all the other courses we played be in such great condition and this course has some greens with only 50% grass? And this was in April.....not August after a long hot summer.

Without doubt the worst experience of the 2 week trip. The WORST greens I have ever had the displeasure of playing on. The bad winter excuse didn't wash because if Arcadian Shores and Wild Wing can have excellent greens then so can Long Bay. Memories of the course are hazy except for the greens which is criminal. Greens this bad should afford a refund never mind a green fee.

Long Bay was a big disappointment! We played 9 there in 2014 and had a rain check for the other 9 and the course was in great condition then. So we were looking forward to playing there again and even brought more people with us this year. Unfortunately, the greens were borderline unplayable, with bare (diseased?) spots on almost all of them and one was half under repair. There had been a lot of rain the previous few days due to Ana, but there were clumps of wet, cut grass all around the greens on a lot of holes and it was generally in poor condition. Compared to last year, it was night and day from great to gross. We played 4 other courses (one later the same day as Long Bay) and they were in great shape. So the weather could not be the blame. Very disappointing.
