Multiple Reports are saying that the greens are dead, all sand.
Switch to another course!

Beautiful piece of property. course did not winter well maybe due to its location. 8 greens were bad but you can tell the staff were working hard on them to bring them back! this is a top tier course but was a disappointment. management knowing this did their best in offering compensation with gift cards and pro v 1 s. clubhouse staff extremely apologetic for the conditions,very classy yet not their fault. as an annual visitor, i would have preferred that management notify golf directors about the conditions so that golfers could make an alternate choice.

Greens were not in good condition due to hard winter but this is such a good layout we still enjoyed it. The holes around the intercostal are superb (3,4,12,13) and others not far behind. A must play for anyone playing golf in Myrtle and hope the greens get back to their best

Love the course, they had issues with the greens, which were in very poor shape. We were made aware of this a few days before we played. The staff was very accommodating with us, let us start on the back, and we finished in less than 4 hours. Great staff there.

Stay away!!! greens that bad. if you have to play, don't pay more than 30 dollars for greens like these. they said it was because the weather. than why does other courses(farmstead)with the same greens not have this problem????? too bad because this is one of my favorites.

I found that the green fees with our golf package was to costly.

I'm not sure what the previous commenters were thinking. The greens are the worst in the southeast. As far as I'm concerned, you can't call them greens as it's a 50/50 combination of dirt and sand. Will never come back. Staff is sympathetic, but no grass on greens will lead to a beautiful layout to fail eventually. A joke and a shame.
The moveable feast that is Myrtle Beach golf appeals to all sorts of players for all sorts of reasons throughout the calendar year. Some like it hot, some like it upscale, some seek out less expensive months, some like it for at least 36 holes a day, some prefer to set aside ample pool and beach time.
Golf’s first major of the year, the Masters, arrives at majestic Augusta National each April and with it the dawning of a new golf season. For years, prior to heading to Augusta to cover the Masters, the national golf media took advantage of the similarly gorgeous spring weather in Myrtle Beach — the largest city along South Carolina’s coastal “Grand Strand” — where they annually held their season-opening Golf Writer’s Association of America tournament.
