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.

Always a great course with great views. I'd like to play here a little later in the spring to get a better appreciation of it.

One of the most scenic golf courses in MB. Some holes are truly one of a kind. Didn't like the cart path only , so walking to every shot with a few clubs lessened our enjoyment of the course.
Two negatives though, the greens had been heavily sanded and putting was frustrating at times. Also, the course official on a few holes asked us to speed up play...easy to do if you could cart to your ball. Besides , no one behind us for 1.5 holes. Go figure.
Would consider playing again, maybe ?
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.
