Long Bay Golf Club

Long Bay Golf Club is outside the central zone of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina’s golf hub. But one name typically outweighs the short driving distance to the Longs course.

“A lot of people who come here mention Jack,” head professional Jason Mitchell said. “They want to take their picture with the statue out front.”

In this case, he’s talking about Jack Nicklaus. One of the true legends of the game was really just coming into his architectural element when he and his company laid out Long Bay in 1988. In the nearly three decades since it opened, the course has proved its mettle, both in terms of a rigid design that makes players think and the ability to provide varying opinions as to which should be considered the signature hole.

There’s the par-four No. 10, of course, where an oversized waste bunker hugs both sides of the fairway before coming together in front of an offset green. A few holes later, the island green par three is just as visually stunning. It’s about the best problem a course can have, and something that more than offsets the bit of distance from the heart of the area to another of Nicklaus’ gem.

We enjoyed the course and the challenges it provided. Unfortunately it was a little wet with all the rain the area has received.

Played there for first time yesterday. Challenging but not impossible for high handicap like me. Good courses start with friendly staff meeting and greeting you and they excelled. One recommendation- no course guide (and I'm not a tech guy with all the gadgets) so if you don't know the course you're doing some guessing.

Play November 25, 2017. All conditions were excellent tee to green. Traps were soft and raked. Greens were difficult because they looked faster then they were. A great challenge and as a local we took advantage of great rates.

Played at Long Bay on 10/23/16. I was not happy at all with Long Bay and would not recommend playing it. We were scheduled to be the first group off the tee as we were departing back home at the end of the round. It started with the Ranger hooking us up with two individuals who hadn't golfed in a while. I had hoped to play in 3 hrs, but it took us 4 1/2 hours. The course is in average shape. The tees are not level and there were a couple holes where the holes are under repair. On a positive note, the fairways and greens were in good shape, but the layout of the course is only average. I would not recommend playing here.

It was my first time playing Long Bay. My brother in law spoke very highly of the course and its GM Jason Mitchell and all the staff. He did not oversell. The course was in great condition even with all the heat. The Bermuda grass was tough for us northerners but that's on us. The green were well maintained and the pace of play was good. My wife and I will definitely be back.

My husband and I played Long Bay for the first time. The staff, especially Jason Mitchell made our experience a terrific one. We rented clubs and joined with another two of the out of town golfers. The staff was very friendly and the course was very well maintained. No gators though. We'll be back.

Played the course in mid June and the greens were in rough shape but played about a month later and WHAT A TURN Around!! Greens are in great shape...a couple were sodded but are in good shape now. Tee to green everything is lush.

The greens on the front nine are in repair. Some have only 5-10 feet of putting surface the rest of the green is fill in turf. Probably good to pass this one up for now.

Great course. A must play. Played after a good deal of rain. Bunkers were good. course conditions great. Beautiful holes esp 7,10,18 and all 4 par 3's. Paid 48 hour rate of 49 and my son (11) played for free. 7:38 am tee time and course mostly empty finished in 3.5 hours. Staff friendly and cart lady thanked us for being out playing. With all the choices will be back to play this course soon.

I wanted to just create a quick review to tell everyone that despite the previous reviews earlier this year this course was near perfect. Tee boxes, greens, fairways were all in pristine condition and I highly recommend this course. I played despite it raining .75 inches in the matter of 40 minutes, so wet conditions were to be expected. By the third hole any standing water was gone, and the course was easily playable. Please don't let the old reviews scare you, go out and play this course you will not be disappointed.

Course was in great shape...not sure what happened a month or two ago based on some bad reviews but when I played the greens were in great shape. Fairways were in good shape, a little burnt out in spots but that was to be expected with a couple straight weeks near 100 degrees. Definitely was well worth the money which was very reasonable to start off with.

Terrible condition. In 20 years of Myrtle Beach golf trips we have never played a course in such bad condition. Huge disappointment. Why can all the other courses we played be in such great condition and this course has some greens with only 50% grass? And this was in April.....not August after a long hot summer.

Long Bay was a big disappointment! We played 9 there in 2014 and had a rain check for the other 9 and the course was in great condition then. So we were looking forward to playing there again and even brought more people with us this year. Unfortunately, the greens were borderline unplayable, with bare (diseased?) spots on almost all of them and one was half under repair. There had been a lot of rain the previous few days due to Ana, but there were clumps of wet, cut grass all around the greens on a lot of holes and it was generally in poor condition. Compared to last year, it was night and day from great to gross. We played 4 other courses (one later the same day as Long Bay) and they were in great shape. So the weather could not be the blame. Very disappointing.

Course in terrible condition. Greens by far the worst in Myrtle Beach. Staff unresponsive to concerns about condition of course, saying all courses in tough shape due to weather. We played 5 other courses in Myrtle Beach during week and found no other course in poor condition. This course will be taken off our list for next year's trip.

The staff was great, but that was about it. This course was probably in the worst shape I've seen a course in years. There was no need to even putt on most holes because the greens were so bad. I will not be back.

Played this course before, good condition and still a challenge, however, they neglected to mention that an excursion of 60 lady golfers from Canada was playing ahead of us and they were very slow, we normally finish a round in 3 1/2 hrs, it took us 5 1/4 hrs to finish. Never got into a rhythm.

Would not play again seems like the course never drains and you never get to actually get off the cart paths only which makes the day long and carrying you clubs on your back would be easier due to the layout.

This was my first Jack Nicholas course and it was everything I could have ever wished for. Challenging but fair course. I'm a 9 handicap and played from the white tees which were the right tees. There is no need to punish yourself by making it any harder than needed, this course is plenty challenging. This is definitely a second shot course. You must hit the greens in the correct places or be prepared to be punished. These greens undulate, twist and turn with good speed. The greens roll true. The fairways are generous but make sure to hit them and stay out of the waste bunkers that are plentiful. If you hit it the waste bunkers just take your medicine and get back in play. I would play this course again for sure and plan on it. You cannot go wrong with this course. Just book it and play it!!!

Arrived and checked in with the Pro Shop for my 8:06 tee time. The attendant did not have my name on his list nor did the starter. I told both of them that I had an 8:06 tee time which I arrived for more than a half hour early for. The starter said he would fit me in, I can't understand why because I had an 8:06 reservation made online. I teed off at 8:39 and was not very happy as I booked an early time so that I could finish just after noon, as it was I finished my round just after 1:15. I have booked quite a few rounds on MBN.com over the last couple of years and this was the first time I had an issue

Very nice course, fair, greens and fairways in excellent condition. Liked the country club feel verses the resort dynamics of some other courses. Friendly staff, easy in and out. Easy to navigate with good flow between driving range, putting green, pro shop, and 1st tee box. Played 1st round of three in 2 days. I have played 33 of the top 50 courses in MB, Not as great as Caledonia, but nice, enjoyable course that I would not hesitate to play again. A little out of the way. We drove in from the north so we played it on our way to the central part of MB.
