Oyster Bay Golf Links has recently earned an overall rating of 8.3 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for overall experience, course condition, course layout, and friendly staff. Click here to see Oyster Bay’s most recent reviews.
Opening in 1983, course designer Dan Maples built this magnificent golf course in Sunset Beach, N.C. which offers a combination of natural terrain and ingenious design to Bay present golfers with a true test of golf on a beautiful setting. This course features two island greens and other risk-reward opportunities that require a steady hand and rugged nerves. All handicaps are in for a treat on this links-style course that’s as lovely as it is challenging.
Receiving recognition from Golf Digest as “Best Places to Play” in 2005 and “5 Stars” in 2003, this will be worth the extra mile. The signature hole will be the 17th, at only 165 yards from the back tees, features a tiny green enclosed by trees and lined by the course’s trademark oyster shells. Another recognized hole is the 9th, a monster par 5, playing at 560 yards, with the marshy waters of the Calabash River running from tee to green on the left and out of bounds on the right, it presents a daunting challenge. Not to mention the green is only 29 yards deep and 25 yards wide. Head Pro, Tim Jackson, says to “play it cautious” and claims “it’s an outstanding par 5.”

Oyster Bay is always a fun place to play, the course has its challenging holes and nice scenery. Very few holes look the same and the par 4's played long. Conditions weren't as good as some of the others, but we would play it again.

Very nice course with an awesome layout. Highly recommended. However, the staff was continuously pushing us to move along. We ended up finishing our round in under 4 hours, and were still pressured by staffing. This was the worst experience of our trip.

For this course to be a part of the Legends group I was expecting it to be of comparable quality. Legends group should be embarrassed. The only thing about the conditions that was OK was the greens. The fairways, tee boxes, rough, bunkers, cart paths were horrible. They look as if they were a result of total neglect. The restrooms on the course were nasty and run down. It would have been a vast improvement to have port-a-johns. I ate lunch in the club house. Only one table had patrons. There was three workers. I had to ask for a refill on my drink. I will never go back to this place. Sad because it has the reputation for being a premium course. They charge premium prices.

VERY SURPRISED. I USE TO PLAY THIS COURSE 25 YEARS AGO AND IT WAS ALWAYS IN TOP CONDITION AND ONE OF MY FAVORITES. DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE SPENT ANY MONEY ON THE COURSE SINCE THEN. HORRIBLE SHAPE. I WAS EMBARRASSED TO HAVE RECOMMENDED IT FOR THIS TRIP.
