Carolina National Golf Club

This 27-hole facility designed by Masters Champion Fred Couples was opened in 1998 and has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of the finest courses on the eastern seaboard. An Audubon-Certified Sanctuary course, each nine is named for a bird that can be found on site - Egret, Heron, and Ibis.

The golf course boasts five sets of tees, which allow golfers of all skill levels to enjoy the course. Couples has integrated a “Masters Feel” to each nine, which is evident when you set foot on the first tee box. Set along the banks of the Lockwood Folly River in North Carolina, Carolina National Golf Club winds through scenic wetlands and maritime forest providing a variety of playing experiences.  The Heron nine features what has been labeled the course’s signature hole, a par three measuring 203 yards from the back tees. The green extends out in the marsh and provides breathtaking views of the Lockwood Folly River. This hole can be set to play from many different angles, as the tee boxes can be arranged to change the view of the hole.

Outstanding facilities contribute to a great golf experience as Carolina National has a large practice range along with a 14,000-square-foot putting green, and a spacious clubhouse which includes a large dining area to accommodate its membership.

My group played all 27 holes on a deal where you get 27 holes and lunch. We had a great time. The golf course was in excellent condition. Not complaints. The greens putted very true and were moderately fast for summertime conditions. Speed of play for a Saturday was good. We were held up on a few holes but still all in all good pace of play. The staff is very friendly and the food in the grill was excellent. I had a bacon cheeseburger and it was one of the best, cooked perfectly (medium-rare), that I have had. This was my 2nd timed playing Carolina National and I definiely would recommend playing it.

After 2 terrible experiences a few years ago, our group was glad to see Carolina National is back! The greens were nearly perfect and the rest of the course was fantastic. It's a beautiful facility and a great course. So happy to see the conditions are now up to par.

Hard greens with little or no grass. Pins on slopiest part of greens. Tees way back. Wouldn't think the average golfer would enjoy this. Used to love this course but the maintenance seems to be slipping. Cart attendant didn't seem to be interested in handling our bags even though you can't take carts into the parking lot.

Used to love this course but greens in terrible shape. They used the old dormant Bermuda excuse but it seemed that on the greens with the least grass the pins were placed on the slopiest portion of the green. Also most holes were cut poorly giving the volcano effect around the hole. The gold tees were all back as far as possible making them play almost as long as the black tees. Not much fun for the average golfer.

The new champions greens were very good, smooth and fast. Good conditions everywhere. CN had the best conditions I have ever seen there. This is again a great value. Lunch off the menu was included, but I can't say if that is ongoing or only a 2014 deal. The drive time from the hotel was 55 minutes, about the same as driving to Heritage/Cal. Its difficult to pick a best 9, as all 3 nines are interesting and blend together in any combination. I like the Heron 9 the best. Most holes are tree lined, interesting and different, thanks to Freddy. CN is a must play in this price range.

OUTSTANDING!!!! This is the first time we played the course. Trust me, it won't be the last. The course was in great shape from tee to green. I preferred the bent grass greens on the IBIS course, but can understand why they are making the change to the Bermuda greens.

My wife and I met a couple we know Sunday at Carolina National for an afternoon round of golf. What a disappointment, for a supposed 4 and 1/2 star golf course it really fell short. I have played the courses up and down the Grand Strand all winter and this one was in the worse condition of any we have played. The fairways were spotty and the greens very lumpy and inconsistent. We spent most of the time on the Ibsis nine with two or three groups backed up on every tee box. We made the turn at 2 hours and 45 minutes with two groups on the tee. We were looking at a 6 hour round with no player assistant people seen all day. We decided to leave. On the way out my friend went into the Pro Shop to register our complaint about the conditions and slow play. Only to be met with total disconcern from the young man behind the counter who's answer was No one else has complained. I will not travel the distance from Myrtle Beach to play this course again nor would I suggest it as a course to play to any of my friends or anyone who would ask.

Everyone, was friendly, knowledgeable, and respectful. I really enjoyed the course, but a little long for seniors, but I still shot under 100. Enjoyed the round and would come back.

Liked the entire layout of the course. The 5 choices of tee boxes make this course playable for all skill levels. I got paired with 2 gentlemen who knew the course and were an absolute blast to play golf with. Will definetely play this course again.

Me and my buddies from OH played there yesterday. The course was in great shape. I could have shot better, but oh well! The lunch and beers they included was outstanding. Couldn't ask for more. It took a while to get here, but that's ok. I will definitely be back next year!

Very pleased with this one. First round on the trip. Overnighted in Wilmington on my drive to MB. Wanted to play something on the way to MB today. Will do it again. Good range, good practice green. Very fair layout. Played Heron & Ibis nines. Ibis nine is more course management with a few blind tee shots. Yardage book really helped & leaving the driver in the bag for some tee shots is the smart play for the longer hitters on some holes. Green ran pretty quick & rolled very true. Little round, fairways cut nicely & in good shape. Staff were friendly as well & paired me up with another single & a couple of members. Thanks for a good day.

Clean, well maintained, friendly staff. Very challenging from the back tees particularly on a windy day. Not my favorite but a nice course to play occasionally.

Greens were slow, shaggy and on the back 9 most greens had sand patches on them. Nice layout, too bad greens leave a bad taste.

Nice layout and facilities, but if staying in MB, the 52-mile drive is a tough one. Be sure to ask about conditions of greens. Otherwise, beautiful course and friendly service.

If you don't mind the drive, this 27 holes is a great value. Beautiful facilities and 3 diverse 9 holes. Heron 9 are great. Greens rolling true and fairways are good. With a little more rain and heat the course will be perfect. Worth the drive.

A good hour drive from central MB, OK for a stop on the way back north. The course is in good condition but I had the feeling of walking in a members-only environment. Was paired with a member who is the type to throw his golf bag into the pond, that did not help my day. Will be back with a full foursome later. Did not serve full breakfast.

Myrtle Beach Golf Back on Track After Historic Rainfall

Tumbnail for: Myrtle Beach Golf Back on Track After Historic Rainfall By Wednesday morning, scores of visiting golfers were strolling the grounds at Grande Dunes Resort Club just as they would on your typical, ideal day for a round of fall golf on the Grand Strand. With temperatures in the low 70s paired with brilliant, clear-blue skies and a light breeze, this course – along with the vast majority of golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area – was back to business as usual.
