this is a low budget operation and that quickly becomes evident when you step out of your vehicle after parking in the lot. I stayed on the north end of Myrtle so I had about 1.5 hour drive to get to this course. Played it in a tournament or I would not have made the trip. The setting is beutilful as it is located on an old plantatin with some of the origingal (I beleive) buildings still there. The old oaks are fascinating. The course layout itself is OK and the greens - while cut and putts ran somewhat true - were pretty furry so speed was impossible to guage and short putts could easily slide offline. The fairways were in questionable shape in many places and the tee boxes were a disaster. Drop zones (for the tourney) were not marked so you made your best guess. The yardage books ($2 or $3) were simply hand drawings run off on a copy machine. God thing I still had my old one from 2003 when I last played this course. The parking lot was pretty much gravel and the pro shop (such as it is) and clubhouse were functional at best. One big positive - in my opinion - was the friendliness of the staff that day. While I certainly will ot make any effort to drive down to play this course again, it serves as a low cost option ($25 was the rate, I believe) for the locals. One extra benefit was the drive through Georgetown. The is the most perfect feeling when you are driving down a .5 - 1.0 mile oak tree lined roadway. Picture worthy!

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
