$36 (cart included), played on Tuesday, May 2012 at 8am
Played here 5-29-12, as a single walk-on. Got paired up with a local and his guest, so that helped quite a bit: thanks, Ed.
Greens fees are highly negotiable: the course web site says $35 from 0700 to noon, but the walk-up price at the course was $68! Once I told the pro shop guy I'd seen the web price, he charged me that. Moral of that story: check in advance!
The course is relatively old by Myrtle Beach standards, but is a nice design, with plenty of mature trees, some water, and lots and lots of sand, some very creatively sculpted. If you can get through 18 holes without hitting a bunker, you have really done well.
Tee boxes were a little ragged, but fairways were very nice. Greens were not good: very, very slow and bumpy, and many had large burned spots, which I think is odd for this early in the season. By July, they will be unplayable.
Some very sneaky holes, esecially #7, with hidden water lurking behind a large fairway bunker on the right. Do not use the Driver on this hole!
Pace was a little slow for a weekday, and there was no sign of a ranger. No drink cart either. Clubhouse seems nice, but I did not linger. On course staff was very pleasant, and seemed truly interested in making the player welcome. Course was recently taken over by a new management firm, and the "word on the street" is that they plan to close it for a rehab sometime in the near future. This may explain the poor greens conditions today. Overall a nice course, but with the shabby greens, not competitive for the area.
