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.

Play November 25, 2017. All conditions were excellent tee to green. Traps were soft and raked. Greens were difficult because they looked faster then they were. A great challenge and as a local we took advantage of great rates.

Played LBGC before. Its challenging for sure but the conditions could have been better. It was ok but not exceptional.
by Laurie R - 10/22/2017
Great course and very nice staff can't wait to go back!

Played at Long Bay on 10/23/16. I was not happy at all with Long Bay and would not recommend playing it. We were scheduled to be the first group off the tee as we were departing back home at the end of the round. It started with the Ranger hooking us up with two individuals who hadn't golfed in a while. I had hoped to play in 3 hrs, but it took us 4 1/2 hours. The course is in average shape. The tees are not level and there were a couple holes where the holes are under repair. On a positive note, the fairways and greens were in good shape, but the layout of the course is only average. I would not recommend playing here.

It was my first time playing Long Bay. My brother in law spoke very highly of the course and its GM Jason Mitchell and all the staff. He did not oversell. The course was in great condition even with all the heat. The Bermuda grass was tough for us northerners but that's on us. The green were well maintained and the pace of play was good. My wife and I will definitely be back.
by Sheila - 08/22/2016
My husband and I played Long Bay for the first time. The staff, especially Jason Mitchell made our experience a terrific one. We rented clubs and joined with another two of the out of town golfers. The staff was very friendly and the course was very well maintained. No gators though. We'll be back.
by Henry - 07/21/2016
Played the course in mid June and the greens were in rough shape but played about a month later and WHAT A TURN Around!! Greens are in great shape...a couple were sodded but are in good shape now. Tee to green everything is lush.
by Keith - 07/05/2016
The greens on the front nine are in repair. Some have only 5-10 feet of putting surface the rest of the green is fill in turf. Probably good to pass this one up for now.
by Doug - 03/28/2016
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.
by Kim - 02/16/2016
Long Bay greens and entire course is in excellent shape heading into the spring.
by Seth - 08/11/2015
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.
by Aaron - 08/03/2015
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.
by John - 07/02/2015
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.
by Tom - 05/21/2015
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.
by Tony - 05/17/2015
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.
by Brad - 05/08/2015
Course in terrible condition. Greens by far the worst in Myrtle Beach. Staff unresponsive to concerns about condition of course, saying all courses in tough shape due to weather. We played 5 other courses in Myrtle Beach during week and found no other course in poor condition. This course will be taken off our list for next year's trip.
by Craig - 05/07/2015
Greens were HORRIBLE! Hardly grass on almost all of them and fertilzer pellets on all of them. VERY dissapointing!!
by Jim - 05/06/2015
The staff was great, but that was about it. This course was probably in the worst shape I've seen a course in years. There was no need to even putt on most holes because the greens were so bad. I will not be back.
by Nick - 04/21/2015
Great staff, really took care of our group. Course was in good shape. This is in a housing development. Pretty par 3's ... Island green was memorable, as was 18th hole.
by Paul (Arnold, MD) - 11/12/2014
by William (Fredericksburg, VA) - 11/10/2014
Good course but too far from hotel. Will not play again because of location. There are too many quality courses closer in.
by Jim (Menasha, WI) - 10/29/2014
Great course; interesting layout!
by Antonio (Valhalla, NY) - 10/25/2014
Played this course before, good condition and still a challenge, however, they neglected to mention that an excursion of 60 lady golfers from Canada was playing ahead of us and they were very slow, we normally finish a round in 3 1/2 hrs, it took us 5 1/4 hrs to finish. Never got into a rhythm.
by Kenneth Monteavaro - 10/25/2014
by Tom (Depew, NY) - 10/20/2014
Only really remember it was in good condition and the staff was very friendly. Did not go in the pro shop or restaurant.
by John (Fitchburg, MA) - 10/19/2014
Would not play again seems like the course never drains and you never get to actually get off the cart paths only which makes the day long and carrying you clubs on your back would be easier due to the layout.
by Chris (Cambridge, Ontario) - 10/14/2014
Very good.

Great place!!! Greens were perfect speed.
by Scott (Matthews, NC) - 09/30/2014
Excellent course. Fairways and tees were too wet. Not the fault of the maintenance staff. I would definitely play here again, but not after all that rain!
by Derek - 09/18/2014
This was my first Jack Nicholas course and it was everything I could have ever wished for. Challenging but fair course. I'm a 9 handicap and played from the white tees which were the right tees. There is no need to punish yourself by making it any harder than needed, this course is plenty challenging. This is definitely a second shot course. You must hit the greens in the correct places or be prepared to be punished. These greens undulate, twist and turn with good speed. The greens roll true. The fairways are generous but make sure to hit them and stay out of the waste bunkers that are plentiful. If you hit it the waste bunkers just take your medicine and get back in play. I would play this course again for sure and plan on it. You cannot go wrong with this course. Just book it and play it!!!

by David (Kunkletown, PA) - 02/20/2014
Fairways were very wet, had a lot of standing water. I think this took away from the various challenges for the course. It would be nice to play this course when it dries out. The greens were easy to read and putting was good.
by Dan (Hampton, IL) - 02/20/2014
Love the course. I have to play it every time I'm in the area.
by Ellen (Westford, MA) - 11/21/2013
People were ok, not overly friendly. It was busy and staff did not have an abundance of time to socialize The course was good but I would not be in a hurry to replay
by Carol (Manotick, ON) - 11/19/2013
Work going on the signature hole was a disappointment as they kept going whilst we tried to play around them....not the experience we expected.

This is my favorite golf course ever. The employees were all very friendly, professional and efficient. I love the layout and challenge of all the holes on the course. The club house is beautiful. The speed of the greens is superior to the other courses we played during our visit. Looking forward to going back next year.

Very nice golf to play. Staff professional and helpful. Enjoyed being here and playing this wonderful golf course.
by Kevin (Brooklin, ON) - 09/16/2013
Arrived and checked in with the Pro Shop for my 8:06 tee time. The attendant did not have my name on his list nor did the starter. I told both of them that I had an 8:06 tee time which I arrived for more than a half hour early for. The starter said he would fit me in, I can't understand why because I had an 8:06 reservation made online. I teed off at 8:39 and was not very happy as I booked an early time so that I could finish just after noon, as it was I finished my round just after 1:15. I have booked quite a few rounds on over the last couple of years and this was the first time I had an issue
by John (Reidsville, NC) - 09/12/2013
Course was in excellent shape, starter (Larry) was very friendly and helpful. plenty of yardage markers on the course. Course plays long and difficult, but i had my worst ball striking round of the year so hard to say just how difficult the course is.
by Fred (Monsey, NY) - 09/05/2013
Course was in outstanding condition and is a beautiful layout. It is challenging but very fair. This was my second time playing and will likely play again in the future.

by Ronald (Carolina Shores, NC) - 08/23/2013
Course was very wet, not favorable for car path only. tee boxes set up too far from where you have to park your cart.
by Jeff - 08/14/2013
The course is in great shape! Fairways give some nice roll after your drive. Greens were recently aerified but still roll o.k.
by Mij - 08/12/2013
Recently aerified greens but putted ok. Course was in great shape. Tight fairways and tees are a plus.

by Edward (Columbus, NJ) - 05/15/2013
Course was tough in windy conditions . Make sure you play from tees you can handle .
by Ron (Norfolk, VA) - 05/14/2013

by Tim (Allen, TX) - 05/14/2013

The course was in excellent condition, and the staff there were very friendly and helpful. I can think of no negative comments to say.
by Randy (West End, NC) - 05/03/2013
Great course and layout. Compares with the best in Myrtle Beach.
by Jake (Grand Rapids, MI) - 04/19/2013
Tee boxes did not look mowed and greens were relatively slow. Pace of play was great and everyone was very friendly, except for the older gentleman that loaded clubs on carts.
by Darrell (New Bern, NC) - 04/16/2013
Very nice course, fair, greens and fairways in excellent condition. Liked the country club feel verses the resort dynamics of some other courses. Friendly staff, easy in and out. Easy to navigate with good flow between driving range, putting green, pro shop, and 1st tee box. Played 1st round of three in 2 days. I have played 33 of the top 50 courses in MB, Not as great as Caledonia, but nice, enjoyable course that I would not hesitate to play again. A little out of the way. We drove in from the north so we played it on our way to the central part of MB.

Outside of rain, there has been no watering so nothing is growing. Yes, it was cool but come on, the place is as hard as a rock. Nothing holds to the green. Sand is everywhere so it is very penal. Might be fun to play in the summer but not before May.
by Bob (Cape May Court House, NJ) - 03/27/2013
Got rained out but very accommodating with the rain checks and getting us on the course the next day so we could get in our round
by Matt (Bedford, TX) - 03/26/2013
Nice course and price was good that I booked off
by Vern (Cambridge, WI) - 03/26/2013
Would play again. We all enjoyed the course
by Daniel (Whitesboro, NY) - 03/26/2013
I have played this course in the past and I felt the greens and tees weren't as nice as they have been in the past!!
by John (Wilmington, DE) - 03/25/2013
by Jinwoo - 03/25/2013
It was good managed course and very challenging course but there has no information about course for first time player. I wish they will provide GPS system on a cart or give us a course map
by Alan (Fort Dodge, IA) - 03/22/2013
Beautiful course, we enjoyed our rounds very much.
