Myrtlewood Golf Club - PineHills Course

Time has not forgotten the PineHills Course at Myrtlewood Golf Club.

One of the four oldest courses on South Carolina’s Grand Strand, the track was originally opened in 1966 as the Pines before an Arthur Hills overhaul in 1993 led to its new moniker. The refresher kept PineHills current, requiring a touch more skill than its previous inhabitant.

“PineHills is more of a strategic placement,” head professional Ryan Ruddy said. “It’s got the rolling hills. It goes through both sides of the property. It’s a fun, challenging golf course. It’s more thought process than just going out there and smashing the driver.”

Nearly 400 yards shorter than its sister course, the Palmetto, first timers and regulars alike agree that PineHills is the bigger challenge. Aside from a rolling terrain, water is visible on 17 of the 18 holes, with nine of them directly affecting strategy.

Take the par-five No. 3, for example. It is on the course’s signature hole where players must angle their tee shot away from an elongated pond up the right side in order to not only stay dry, but to also set up a second shot where the bending hazard doesn’t rear its head once more.

I have played here many times and it's always enjoyable.
by Lee - 11/11/2017
One of my favorite Myrtle Beach courses, I could play this course every day and never be disappointed. A minor amount of fungus on a couple of greens can be expected this time of year. All in all an outstanding value and great to play.

Was told that they had just over seeded and could not tell.
by Jim - 08/10/2016
Attempted to play this course in the early afternoon. The rate was much higher than any of the other courses in the area, $58.00. But what's worse is the treatment outsiders receive from the staff in the pro shop. Very rude very pompous and obvious they don't want outsiders playing their course. It's to bad because up until a couple years ago my kids and I would sink several hundreds of dollars into playing the course while staying at Myrtle Wood for a couple weeks. Not anymore. After the 2nd year being treated like garbage by the pro shop staff we will no longer spend any money there. There are too many options close by.

Called pro shop for tee time on Palmetto course. Shop said greens 80% heeled after maintenance. Very disappointed after we loaded carts and were sent to Pine Hills course. I tried to politely voice my concern, but was totally ignored. Would have never played Pine Hills with so many other choices for less money and better layout. Greens in horrible condition. Fairways and tee boxes very nice, but greens not even close to 80% heeled.
by Timothy - 02/03/2016
The course was wet, so cart path only. The staff were pleasant to deal with which makes for a nice day. It's very wet so it plays long. The greens were a little sluggish but playable. The only thing that was negative was the guy SMOKING in the crowd at the bag drop, I don't think that the staff should allow smoking near the customers.

I had a tee time booked for 9 a.m. on New Year's Day. The practice range was closed which was understandable and expected. My 9 a.m. tee time was given to a huge group outing on this course. To be flexible and understanding I told the attendant that my party would be happy to move our tee time to the Myrtlewood Palmetto Course. The starter was very nice and explained the rules and restrictions completely. On the third hole, a group of golfers were behind us. The group behind us yelled and were rude to our group as we approached to hit our balls. Mind you that the course was under water and was cart path only, also understandable and great decision by the greens staff. So we let the inconsiderate group play through. On the eight hole on our second shots the ranger told us we needed to keep up with the group on front of us. I even carried my bag on several holes so that we could stay within the pace of play. We were only maybe five minutes slower than we should have been. I told him we let them play through he said he didn't care we needed to keep up with their pace. They were running through the water soaked fairways to get to their balls. It would seem to me that the ranger would know that the play was going to be a little slower than usual because of the course conditions and restriction. The reason I know this is because I work a golf club and know how things work. My group paid $54 each to play. Our decision to do so, is it to much to ask that a ranger know the conditions and restrictions and be a little considerate to guests of the club. The cart we were assigned to was dirty, it had burnt matches and cigar wrappers in the cubbies of the cart. I would not recommend this course or courses to anyone ever. They seem to be just in the business to get the money and have no clue about customer service. If anyone chooses to play at either of these courses, just know not to expect to much from the staff. We left and didn't finish our round of golf.

by David (Candler, NC) - 03/14/2014
Scored the fairways and the greens low on the survey due to the fact the course was extremely wet. Nothing that could be controlled. I walked about 700 miles that day as well due to the entire course being cart path only, again due to excessive rain.

First time playing but enjoyed it enough to definitely come back
by John (Providence Forge, VA) - 10/14/2013
Slow play: 5+ hours. Too many holes with same dog-leg right layouts.
by Judy and James (Weatherford, TX) - 09/27/2013
This course was a little harder than we thought it would be but it was a beautiful course, well taken care of and we had a great time.
by Eb (Asheville, NC) - 08/20/2013
Myrtlewood does a nice job handling golfing groups such as outs
by Seth - 08/09/2013
Played 8-2-13. 7:56 am tee time. Great course and layout. Loved the course and would go back. Challenging but not too hard. Bunkers were not in best shape but rained hard the day before. Greens nice. Fairways in good shape. Fun to play and we got done in 4 hours and 10 minutes and it was packed. Did not get anything in grill but grabbed a beer from cart girl. A couple fun holes. Enjoyed the par 5 on the back where you could cut the dogleg right with drive over tall tree and go for it in 2. Must say it is only course I have played where bag attendants don't unload clubs. Didn't mind it, but found it odd. Maybe because they are so busy. I can't wait to play the Palmetto course on next trip
by Lane (Greensboro, NC) - 07/29/2013
Great staff, including grill. Course is good condition. Very enjoyable time. Water was a challenge for me (lost 4 balls due to my slice). Thanks for participation in Prime Time.
by Joseph (Lexington, NC) - 07/01/2013
The course was in excellent condition.
by Scott (Davidson, NC) - 05/20/2013
You have no Marshall I have never taken that long to play a game in my life 5 1/2 hours for 18 hole s that is wrong. You apparently over book your course won't play there again

I think that the overall experience with your club was awesome. We were treated like members.
by Gary (Langhorne, PA) - 04/11/2013
Great Staff that was polite, knowledgeable and eager to help make the overall golf experience wonderful. Have visited both courses many times with the top conditions. Would recommend for all levels of playing ability.
by Frank (Middletown, NJ) - 04/01/2013
Course was well manicured. Maybe the restauranat area could use a facelift ?
by Chet (Telford, PA) - 04/01/2013
Course in good shape, but play too slow.
by Paul (Oakville, ON) - 02/26/2013
Overall enjoyable experience
by Keith Grass Lake, MI) - 02/19/2013
Busy course we only played nine holes because we arrived late after long drive from michigan.
by Kenny (Waynesboro, VA) - 01/26/2013
Second time playing this course and it is one that I would come back and play again.

Second time playing this course and it is one that I would come back and play again.
by Walter (Atkinson, NC) - 01/13/2013
Have played both Myrtlewood courses and both times the experience was a very good one. I expect I will be back in the near future.
by Doug (Deseronto, ON) - 12/04/2012
I really like this course, it is always in good shape. Pro shop staff and starters are very good.
by Robert (Dade City, FL) - 11/11/2012
Very nice course - will be back!
by Douglas (Hillsdale, NJ) - 11/04/2012
Though not a long course, the bunkering and presence of water provided plenty of challenge for my level of play.
by Kevin (Janesville, WI) - 10/22/2012
This is our favorite at Myrtlewood. Shorter than Palmetto, we had many more chances at hitting the greens in reg. Just beautiful!
by Ben (Charlottesville, VA) - 10/13/2012
A fun, but challenging course. Well kept, with an excellent staff. They do it right!
by David (Shelton, CT) - 10/13/2012
Play moved along. Open airways very forgiving if you didn't hit is straight.
by George (Bernville, PA) - 10/09/2012
Greens could be healthier.
by John (West Des Moines, IA) - 10/05/2012
Great course in excellent condition. Lots of bunkers of which I found most. Wide fairways made the course playable for all. My only complaint is the greens were very slow!!!
by John (Vestal, NY) - 09/26/2012
I had called and made a starting time at Myrtlewood. When I questioned the price, he referred me back to the online reservation. When I made a reservation through you and called back, he politely canceled the prior reservation I had made. It was a pleasant, no-hassle day.
by Thomas (Georgetown, SC) - 09/07/2012
The course is short but lots of fun!
by Jimmy (Johnson City, TN) - 09/07/2012
(Would like to have known prior to play) that if we came with 2 golfers that we would be paired with someone else.
by Steve (Eagleville, PA) - 09/04/2012
Unfortunately, the course was very wet. Otherwise, it was nice.
by Tony (Etobicoke, ON) - 08/31/2012
Very affordable.
by Donald (East Haven, CT) - 08/23/2012
A late add-on course before I left because of the price and proximity to where I was staying. What a pleasant surprise, a lot of really nice holes, I was very impressed with the greens and traps. Didn't play well today but that was my fault. Very nice course,I would recommend it.
by Mark (Rochester, MI) - 08/22/2012
Too easy.
by Randy (Akron, OH) - 08/14/2012
Very happy with the course - enjoyed playing there and plan to play in the future.
by Bob (Sykesville, MD) - 08/14/2012
Had a great time will definitely return and will certainly use Ambassador Golf again.
by Aaron (Pittsburgh, PA) - 08/14/2012
The condition of the course was poor.
by Donnie (Gastonia, NC) - 08/12/2012
I will put this on my favorites lists. Even though it rained me out after the 9th hole. Great course!
by Matt (Charleston, WV) - 08/11/2012
Greens were not in great condition. Older course with sand base greens and most of them has been recently aerated. Waited way to long to cut grass on the course ... clumps everywhere. Tee boxes a little rough to other courses in the area. I would rate it a 7 out of 10, mostly because of the price.
by Brad (Rural Hall, NC) - 07/28/2012
Really well laid out course and nicely manicured. Would definitely recommend to others and plan to play again in the future.
by Robert (Hopatcong, NJ) - 07/19/2012
Great all around experience. Would recommend to friends.
by Ronnie (Strawberry Plains, TN) - 07/15/2012
Greens were slow due to verticut and sanding.
by Darren (Berrien Springs, MI) - 07/07/2012
Solid, fun course, nothing spectacular but good for what I paid, especially in a resort area. Smooth check-in, round a bit long at about 5 hours.
by Harold (Moore, SC) - 07/06/2012
Nice layout. Enjoyed our round. Staff was very friendly.
by Gene (Mickleton, NJ) - 07/03/2012
I have played golf many times over the years and I have to say this course was one of the best maintained courses I have EVER played. The grounds crew keeps it in BEAUTIFUL shape. I would recommend this course to anyone.
by Henry (Walnut Cove, NC) - 06/24/2012
The course was in amazing shape, I can't begin to tell how impressed I was with everything, I will be back.
by John (Rice Lake, WI) - 06/22/2012
Nice course, open fairways, plenty of water and sand traps for the average golfer. Ambassador Golf gave my family a great value for an above average Myrtle Beach golf course. Staff was very professional.
by Dennis (Macon, GA) - 06/21/2012
Friendly and well staffed facility. Greens were fantastic. Fairways and overall golf course layout was excellent. Price was unbeatable. Would play here again.
by James (Harlanlan, KY) - 06/21/2012
Great range, and chipping area to get you ready to start the round. Not a long course, but a great design that makes you think it through. Pars are a good score on most holes, but birdie chances definitely exist. Water and bunkers strategically placed make shaping shots a must. Had a great experience and would definitely come back, just to try the Palmetto Course.
by Pete (Johnson City, TN) - 06/11/2012
(Liked the) layout.
by Brian (Raleigh, NC) - 06/06/2012
Great shape and good challenge!
by Colton (Bristol, TN) - 06/05/2012
The course was very challenging, tons of sand to play in. It appeared that the greens were recently aerated which made the greens terribly slow and hard, hard to get in the hang of.
by Alan (Marietta, GA) - 06/04/2012
Enjoyable round.
by Mike (Raleigh, N.C.) - 06/02/2012
Nice course, rate of $42 was competitive, will play there again.
by Walter (Maple, ON) - 05/29/2012
Lucky to get a game in every year before they aerate it. Feels like home. Played it for 42 years. Good enough for a higher handicapper.
by Michael (Rochester, NY) - 05/28/2012
(Would like to have had) golf lessons and tips on how to play better.
by Douglas (Branford, CT) - 05/22/2012
Staff was outstanding.
by Gary (Aurora, OH) - 05/20/2012
Good condition, lots of sand, easy course if you are playing well.
by Richard (Raleigh, NC) - 05/20/2012
Fairways were in great shape, but very wet due to an excessive amount of rain the two previous days.
by Ron (Cape Canaveral, FL) - 05/11/2012
Play was fast for first 9 but got slow with an inexperienced foursome in front of us on back 9. Nice course and a good value for the money. Will play again.
by Guy (Quebec, QC) - 05/10/2012
by Henry (Waterdown, ON) - 05/01/2012
Excellent experience all around, as usual. Myrtlewood has always been the most favorite course to play for both my wife and I.
by Edward (Chapin, SC) - 04/30/2012
An excruciatingly slow pace of play; round took well over 5 hours. Course was (or so it appeared) putting as many people out as they could whether they had a tee time or not to the detriment of all. On top a that, a truly unremarkable golf course.
by Mike (Wake Forest, NC) - 04/28/2012
Did not know they were double booking tee times which we had to wait for after the first nine played.
by Jack (Harwich Port, MA) - 04/24/2012
Very playable course. Greens in great shape but on the slow side. Many opportunities for penalties with an errant shot. Played in under 4 hours but course not crowded.
by Joseph (Sayville, N.Y.) - 04/23/2012
by Randall (New Castle, Penn.) - 04/22/2012
by Ian (Marlborough, Mass.) - 04/03/2012
Great course - open, easy to play but some greens which were very tough.
by Jack - 03/29/2012
Nice layout, in good shape, not overly difficult. A little upset that Golf Now tee time wouldn't function, and ended up paying an extra 8 bucks to play. Played in a little over 4 hours, which was a refreshing change at this time of year.
by Dan (Cumberland, Md.) - 03/01/2012
by Joseph (Troy, Ill.) - 02/12/2012
Course was OK. What made the day was our early arrival and being able to go out early.
by Kevin & Sue (Morrisville, N.C.) - 09/15/2011
Everything was in great shape. The only drawback was the green were way too fast.
by Gene (Raleigh, N.C.) - 05/11/2011
Very good.
by Thomas (Albany, N.Y.) - 03/20/2011
Beautiful course. The greens were not extremely complex, but ran very nicely.
by Larry (Danville, Calif.) - 07/19/2010
Very nice course. good condition. Had an 8:22 tee time. Teed off 15 minutes late. Quit after 15 holes and 4:30 on the course. Was going to be a 5:30 round. Marshall was polite and tried to move people along but did not work.
by Gary (Carrollton, Tex.) - 06/21/2010
Nice course.
by John (Frankfort, Ill.) - 04/21/2010
Great greens.
by Phil (Herndon, Va.) - 03/31/2010
We really enjoyed our round. Spend the $3 and get the Yardage Book - it was our first time playing Myrtlewood and it really helped!
