Originally opened in 1968 and designed by Gene Hamm, the then-Quail Creek Golf Club became a particular favorite among local Myrtle Beach golfers. It has gained even further recognition since a renovation by local architect Craig Schreiner that saw the course reopen in 2011 with a fresh look. Schreiner updated the bunkering and the green complexes in particular, also adding a bit of length to the golf course and bringing it up to 6,897 yards from the back Black tee set. The course is a par 72, with the traditional configuration of ten par fours, four par threes and four par fives.

With smallish greens that are well protected by bunkers and water (which comes into play on six holes), The Hackler Course at Coastal Carolina University places a premium on accuracy, rather than brute force. This is especially true at one of the course’s signature holes, the 362-yard par four 18th. The tee shot may not need to be played with a driver, but it needs to hit the fairway in order for the player to navigate a bunker left of the green, water on the right and a tree that overhangs the green complex. Prudent play will yield a birdie putt and a potentially dramatic finish to the round.

Because The Hackler Course is owned and operated by Coastal Carolina University and played by many students, it has comprehensive facilities to serve the many people who visit. A grass driving range is complemented by a 3,000 square foot putting and chipping green, and there is a larger short game practice area on site as well. The clubhouse is quaint but functional, with a pro shop where visitors can buy Coastal Carolina-branded golf apparel as well as any other needs for a round.

We played this coarse when it was Quail Creek, I think it will be a great coarse soon. The day we played it was very wet, no over seeding made it muddy. It was not an enjoyable day, but I can see that when grounds keepers have a little more time the course will be better than ever. Will try again soon.

Young people as staff. The staff in the Pro Shop and those who load bags were very professional and easy to work with during our play. The course is a little rough and cart paths need a lot of work but we understand the reason for same. It is a long course and this affects older players. Overall a good course but just needs updating.
