Located just a few miles west of North Myrtle Beach in Longs, South Carolina, Crown Park Golf Club has carved out a niche as being a home- and condo-free golf environment away from the slightly more hectic pace of the Grand Strand’s busiest areas.

Measuring at 6,477 yards from the back tees, Crown Park is going to overwhelm the majority of players with sheer distance. However, the Robbie Byers design implemented doglegs, mounding and streams to keep the challenge present. Because of that, brute power isn’t going to pay off. Water is present on 14 of the 18 holes. And while the hardest hole on the course – the par-4, 397-yard No. 3 – may not look like much, a tee shot brings water into the equation before funneling to the green throughout the final half of the hole. There’s also a dogleg left as tight as any on the Grand Strand on the par-4 No. 7, the need to hit over water twice on the par-4 No. 12 (which also includes a dogleg right) and then a different approach altogether on No. 15. That hole, a “true three-shot” par 5 measuring 549 yards, players are actually asked to go very long off the tee as to avoid having to lay up prior to a natural grass hazard that cuts the fairway in half. Just to make it more interesting, a narrow, 37-yard green awaits your approach shot.

Crown Park Golf Club recently received a rating of 7.6 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider. The course also drew higher marks in terms of pro shop and staff. The course is still in its relative infancy – it opened in 2002 – but already it has been recognized as the “Golf Course Maintenance Operation of the Year” by the Classic Golf Group, meaning the conditions on the par-72 track are at a premium.

Still recovering from Hurricane Matthew. Course is in OK shape but I have seen it much better. 4 Holes still cart path only

Great golf course for the price. Nice design, greens are speedy. Fairways were a little wet on the front nine because of seeding but overall really satisfying. I will play it again for sure.

Always consider this course a hidden gem but the I can only describe the course at present time as WET and of thin grass fairways. Recommend to wait and see for mow!

Excellent

Course is in GREAT SHAPE. Greens are some of the best on the Strand right now. Pace of play excellent & $29 to play. Are you kidding me????

Ted

Greens were just aerified about 4 weeks ago but have come back very nice. Tee Boxes & Fairways are in good shape. Pace of play was 4 hours. I highly recommend playing this golf. Local rate for greens fee with cart $29. Can't beat it.......

I had called the club before booking and was told the course was in excellent condition. The real facts are that the tee offs,fairways and sand traps were in real bad shape. The greens were in terrible condition and I would rate them -9 on a scale of 1 to 10. I would not recommend this course to anyone. Avis aux canadiens: évitez ce terrain.

Fairways still wet due to earlier rain. That causes the good rating above. Nothing they can do about that.

What a great and pleasant surprise. The course was in great shape. Greens superb. Our group of 24 will definitely return. The employees go out of their way to accommodate you.

What a great day at one of the best kept secrets in the Myrtle Beach area. Played from the back tees. The course was challenging and yet very fair. The course was in good condition considering the heat and the staff is amongst the friendliest in the area. Combine this with a great price and overall it was a very enjoyable day.

Bob

07/09/2015

The course was in great shape, with the greens putting very well. There were very few players on the course, so my threesome made the round in 3 hours. I would definitely play again.

We have been playing Crown Park for many years. We absolutely love this course and the staff. We are excited about the new ownership and the future plans for renovations. Ten greenside bunkers have already been fixed in 2014.

Rick (Pulaski, NY)

06/02/2014

Very nice people at Crown Park but the course had slipped since we played it in 2010. It is still a nice course and has a nice design to it. Overall, I enjoyed it but the greens were the place where neglect was the most evident.

Jeff (Hagerstown, MD)

Good

Clark

11/12/2013

We all went only one time. place was not well kept, staff was not helpful. Had to wait to be waited on for our already tee time. Grill was awful from staff to selection of food and drink. very warm busy day no beverage cart. The golf course was not kept up at all greens were horrible

William (Climax, NY)

11/05/2013

Reasonable course. Good starting course for your week. Not too long but it did have a lot of doglegs and short holes. Could only hit driver 2 times on the front nine and only 4 times on the back. The staff were very friendly and the superintendent gave us some good tips on the practice green.

Gregory (Ottawa, ON)

04/29/2013

Great

Mowers were a bit distracting at times.

Scott (Cascade, VA)

11/23/2012

The course was extremely wet. The tee boxes were very wet and hard to find dry spaces in Fairways. No rain in two days, but very heavy watering.

Deb (Orillia, ON)

11/13/2012

Starter rudely ignored us. Was it because we were women golfers??

Rich

10/30/2012

A well kept secret ... they just try to do the best thing for a fair price ... not well known but if you play there you will come back ... need to upgrade the grill.

Pete (Milledgeville, GA)

10/24/2012

Great course and people. Would play again.

George

Really enjoyed this course. Best shape of any I played this trip. Course in excellent condition overall. Good carts with GPS. No homes really make this a beautiful experience. Excellent staff and pro shop.

Ron (Charlottesville, VA)

10/01/2012

Greens had a BLUE/green liquid sprayed on them and made hands and clothing blue. Course was very fair and greens putted true. Great way to end the week and a jump start on heading home since out on Rt. 9.

John (South Boston, MA)

07/30/2012

Very nice course. The staff was very friendly and met our every need. I highly recommend this course.

Course layout was good. Great course for the money.

Stones

05/09/2012

Nice for the price and even came with GPS on the carts which was needed. Tricky layout with dog legs and hazards right in the driving alley. Would play from the tips next time to keep so driver isn't kept in the bag most of the day. Conditions were just OK.

Frank (Buena Vista, VA)

05/05/2012

Employees not very friendly.

Crown Park was our first visit on the way down from Pennsylvania and we were welcomed as if we were back at our home club in Altoona. Staff was courteous, and the course was superb. In fact, we played CP again on our way back and have added it to our schedule for many golf trips to come. Greens are great and the course is a true challenge for all golfers.

Anthony

03/14/2012

I tell you what, I have read a review from a guy complaining about the course and I KNOW this guy was at the wrong golf course. All the good golf is finding its way up to the north side of the island. There are modern designed and the technology in keeping them consistent ALL season long is in the North. Staff was impressive, food and beverage great and the course was a challenge. Greens are always in pristine condition while the fairways have the ball sitting up perfectly. Thank you for making my visit to MB a memorable one, Crown Park.

Played Crown Park as a recommendation by a fellow member in West Virginia and I was impressed as soon as I stepped on the property. The porch facing the course is similar to what you see at Pinehurst. Wooded fairways and undulating greens await golfers of all caliber. A great place to play - PERIOD!

Ralph

01/07/2012

Don't waste your time, gas and money on this pretender - terrible drainage, dirt pot holes on fairways, untidy perimeters, unfriendly staff.

Pleasant surprise, hidden gem, really liked the course layout, fun dog legs, heaters, covers, GPS all great

Scott (Dublin, Va.)

12/15/2011

Greens were horrible! Liked heaters and covers.

Robert (Boucherville, Quebec)

11/26/2011

I liked the large greens in perfect shape; couple of tricky holes; not too difficult of a course.

Timothy (Collinsville, Va.)

11/14/2011

Really liked the layout and will probably return in the spring. The only problem I had was they had apparently watered throughout the night and the fairways were saturated - made for a muddy day with some messed up pants at the end. Would still like to play again - on a drier day.

Jean-Paul (Valleyfield, Quebec)

11/09/2011

Everything was perfect.

Mark

11/05/2011

Heated carts, GPS, great layout. Excellent shape,no cart path for overseeding, what more could you ask? Oh - Fred the stater is the best!

Ted (Uniontown, Ohio)

09/21/2011

Friendly atmosphere - liked the playability of the course.

Tim/Stormie (Hodgenville, Ky.)

09/14/2011

Liked the just-golf atmosphere, would do it again.

Danny and Dalphia (Stanley, N.C.)

Crown Park has come a long way since its early days. It will be on our list to consider.

Charles (Rochelle Park, N.J.)

07/05/2011

Greens were aerated a day earlier but were not bad. The blue tee boxes were the worst I've ever played on. It appeared they chose not to care for those tees to restrict water usage. Would not consider returning here in the future.

Tom (Westminster, Md.)

05/10/2011

Great GPS, no houses, will play there next year.

James (Trenton, Ontario)

04/20/2011

The course was in good shape with a good variety of holes.

Vaughn (Logan, Ohio)

03/31/2011

Affordable.

Glenn (Beltsville, Md.)

03/12/2011

Great variety of holes. Very playable for lesser golfers. Very challenging for all levels. Shows you don't need length to make a good test of golf for any level.

Michael (Barnardsville, N.C.)

02/21/2011

I was disappointed by this course and the staff. We had a 12:20 tee time, and arrived an hour early to hit balls. We were told to take some clubs and WALK TO THE RANGE BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY CARTS AVAILABLE! My wife has problems walking long distances and this bothered us both. Once we finished hitting balls we still had 15 minutes until our tee time. The starter informed us there weren't any carts available and we would have to wait until someone came off 18. First of all, the parking lot was only about 1/3 full, and it was not what I would consider busy. We ended up starting 15 minutes late. Secondly, I had heard so many good things about Crown Park and I was excited about playing there as this was our first time at this course. Lastly, the greens hadn't been cut and were very fuzzy, plus there was a lot of debris on them; pine needles, twigs, etc. Needless to say, we won't be playing Crown Park again!

Rich (Toms River, N.J.)

11/01/2010

A well-kept secret. The day we played it was very wet, but otherwise was in perfect shape. The grill needs some expansion of the food selection, breakfast sandwiches are the only choice in the a.m. and are bad! Staff is excellent!

Andy (Elizabethtown, Ky.)

10/07/2010

Great course. Everything was in great shape after all the rain. The only problem we had was that they sent out a group of five in front of us and there was only two of us. We were there in plenty of time for us to be but ahead of them on the 1st tee. We did eventually play through them but not until the turn. Even with that the course was great and would definitely play there again.

Benoit (Gatineau, Quebec)

09/06/2010

It lacks a design rating on this scale. Very well conditioned day to day course, nothing great or nothing bad just a little easy or boring. Still can't beat the value fo the dollar for this course.

Ray

08/30/2010

Played on 8/9/10. Payed $35 and got free range balls and lunch to go along with golf. Carts have GPS in them. Course was in really good shape for this time of year down there. Greens were a bit slow for my liking but I do understand that they have to be careful during the summer months. Without a doubt the the best value on the beach.

Richard (Bedford, Va.)

08/10/2010

We played MB National, South and North the day before we played Crown Park. Now we wished we had played all three rounds at Crown Park. Great course, even with the rain the day before. The greens were the best we have seen all year at MB. It was a pleasure to play a course without homes everywhere you looked. We will be back again!

John (Louisburg, N.C.)

06/08/2010

I like not seeing buildings along the golf course. The greens were not in the best shape I've ever seen them.

James (Danville, Va.)

05/11/2010

The layout was a little odd but really enjoyed it!

Rick (Hartford, Wis.)

Kenneth (Saint Thomas, Penn.)

Excellent course and facility.

George (Riverview, Fla.)

09/21/2009

Very well conditioned. Nice, scenic layout; not real difficult but must hit the fairways in order to score well. Played with a large group and a few of us wanted to play more and the counter person said it was wide open, but the starter said it would be an hour. When we made a tee time somewhere else he wanted to change his tune (his bad). Other than that, it was a nice time.

Tonya (Myrtle Beach, S.C.)

08/25/2009

Take it from a local. This is one of the best conditioned courses you can play in Myrtle Beach for the money. They have an extremely friendly staff from golf shop to ranger. An all around great facility!

Bruce (Chesterfield, Va.)

08/05/2008

Played Nov. 14, 2008: Due to all the rain in area,the fairways were very wet with standing water. We only played 9 holes and got a rain check. We are looking forward to playing in the spring.

Herbert (N. Myrtle Beach, S.C.)

06/14/2008

Played April 24, 2008: Everyone was friendly and helpful. Course was in very good shape.

Golfer Bob

03/25/2017

Overall a fun course at a nice price. I would place it in the middle as to types of courses available in MB. Winter Greens and they are a bit rough. I am not sure if they had cut new holes in several days. Fairways nice. This course can be wet, but was fine when I played. We rode all the fairways. Traps had sand, but it could be raked to fluff it up again. Course can play slow due to the layout of the holes. We played in 4 1/2 hours. Staff is very friendly, and it is a pleasant experience. I would play here again.

What a pleasant surprise - peaceful layout with no homes or distractions...course was in really good shape...greens were as smooth as any on the Grand Strand...excellent service from bag drop, golf shop - professional staff (Rob), food & beverage, and beverage cart (Tiger)...golf course superintendent even stopped by during our round to check with us - play this one!!!

JOHN D

04/20/2017

I had not played CP for a while and the current condition of the course will only push my next replay for many more months. The fairways are thin and the greens have been hit with some type of disease (let's say that a leopard has less spots...). Furthermore the customer service at the course went from great to mediocre at best! Care to enjoy a golf outing do not have this one on the menu...

JOHNNY D

04/20/2017

Car path only, very wet and greens in poor shape!

JOHNNY D

04/21/2017

Stay away from this course if it rained prior you playing it and if you really want to play call to hear "it's cart path only". Comparable to any municipal course in your home state, thin fairways and a leopard has lest spots than the greens. Don't even get me started with staff...
