R (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Had a nice time playing here. Greens great shape, but hard to read. Fairways nicely overseeded for winter, and the traps actually had sand in them. I have always felt this is the better course then the sister course at Meadowlands. Only thing I really don't care for is the par 6 finishing hole. Overall a good experience, and would play again.



Course was in good shape and fun to play. Pro shop reception was terrible. Took our money and barely said a word. Many area courses encourage players. Not Farmstead.



We played on a very windy day, but the course is in great shape. No complaints at all. Staff was friendly and got us out on time.



I booked a tee time as a single this morning. I arrived 30 minutes early and went to the practice green. I was to be paired up with a twosome at 1:00. The course was very busy so I went with the expectation of playing a 5 hour round. While I was waiting the starter sent out 2 twosomes and a threesome. At 1:00 the twosome I was to play with had paid but they were no where to be found. At 1:05, after my tee time, the starter sent out a threesome. There is no excuse for the starter to make me wait 30 minutes and he made me wait after my tee time passed. He could have put me with at least 3 different groups. This is not the way to treat customers. You never know who that customer might be and what they may have to offer you. I recently relocated to North Myrtle Beach. I could have become a regular here but I won't return. There are plenty of other great courses to play on the Grand Strand. I can't tolerate bad customer service.



By far the gem of the trip. Saw a lot of good reviews but when we got there it really exceeded my expectations. The greens were the best that we played all week 9.5 out of 10. Tee boxes 9.0 out of 10. The only thing I can really pick at were that the fairways were a little thin in some spots but that is really nitpicking 8.0 out of 10. Pro shop staff was excellent. Grill was very helpful. Outside staff was good. Overall a must play right now.

Ron (Baden, PA)


1st time playing Farmstead. I will definitely play hear again. Great course!!



Course is very fun!

Rob (E. Patchogue, NY)


Pretty open off the tee. When the wind kicks def makes a few holes real long.



Very rude pro shop manager who would not honour $45 late afternoon rates posted on Web site and wanted $79 and finally settled for $55. To add insult to injury, the course was grossly overbooked with tee times running over an hour late, which he failed to tell us.

Mandy (Lewes, UK)


Good quality course but very busy was a slow round.

Morris (Meriden, CT)


The fairways are wide and forgiving. Would like to see a course map on the scorecard. There was a ranger but a very slow two couple foursome two groups ahead of us and he didn't seem to push them along.

John (Enola, PA)


Incredible conditions, great variety and challenge, top notch facilities, highly memorable. Looking forward to returning in the future.



Very good.



We play here often and is one of my favorite courses.



Nice course. Will come back again. Enjoyed the round.









Excellent course.



Pro Shop was fully stocked and tons of discounts. Bag Drop and Pro shop staff were very nice and helpful. The course is fun and challenging, and the greens were in great shape. great day of golf.

Larnold (Merced, CA)


Everything was great especially the par six and going from one state to the other.



The course was great from tee to green. Staff very nice.

Keith (Lexington, NC)


Staff was very friendly and helpful. It helped make our day much more enjoyable!



This is one great course the one could not ask for better fairways and greens. The course has something for every golfer and finishes up with a spectacular par 6 that is bordered by water on the left all the way to the green. Before and after the round, the staff were very friendly and easy to speak with. This course is a must play.

James (Fort Myers, FL)


Fun course, good layout, enjoyed the par 6 hole. Best condition of the courses we played.

Glenn (South Plainfield, NJ)


Enjoyed the links style. Course is very enjoyable for a high handicap. Greens rolled true. Would definitely play again.

Jean-Marc (Quebec, Canada)


Eccellent layout. Next time we will play again if the sunshine is there.

Keith (Leland, NC)


We were fine.



Fun course ... no houses which is always enjoyable. Fairways and tees were excellent. Greens were spotting but still rolled true. Staff was not overly friendly but not rude by any means. Overall good experience, but with so many courses available just another one to knock off of the list.

Susan (Portland, OR)


This is a very nice, well-laid out course. It was interesting to play in two different states. The par 6 hole was just long; unusual but that doesn't make it all that interesting.

David (West Haven, CT)


Course in great shape, staff very friendly and accommodating.

Nicholas (Auburn, NY)


Good shape ... fairways and tees excellent, greens spotty but still rolled true. Fun course, no houses.

Dennis (Beamsville, ON)


Course is in great condition for early spring.



Course in good shape. Greens were fast but a little bumpy in areas (not unexpected for this time of year). Fairways are very wide. Lots of water but you really have to stray to find it. It was good starter course.

Gary (Cary, NC)


Narrow fairways with many sand bunkers. Fast greens.



Course was in good shape. Greens were fast. Fairways are very wide. Found course to be generally uninteresting. Par 6 finishing hold was fun. Great course to start your trip.

Charles (Columbus, OH)


Everything in shape despite rain. An enjoyable course to play. Of course, #18 you have to play from tips, unless it's busy. A solid golf course. just know what tees to play from.

Graham (Saint Sauveur, QC)


First time playing this course. A lot of water that did not come into play, making it a course that was visually pleasing. I think I will not play this course again. Greens were not very good.

Darwyn (Espanola, ON)


Well manicured, sand traps have great sand, greens fast.



Wet, cold day, highs in low 30's made for a round I'll never forget. I thought the entire course was in very good condition and greens rolled fast and smooth. I will be back to play when weather improves. Kudos to Farmstead Staff from pro shop to greenskeepers.

David (Charlotte, NC)


Total experience was great!

Russ (Lima, OH)


Nice course and worth the drive.

Jason (Snow Hill, NC)


The Par 6 is great!!!



The course was in excellent condition for the time of year. The fairways and greens were in almost perfect condition. The layout makes for a fun experience. For the condition, layout and price Farmstead is one of the best kept secrets on the Strand.

Scott (Fredericton, NB)


Great course. Better then expected.

Keith (Charleston, WV)



Richard (Bucyrus, OH)


Course in great shape. Only complaint was the ranger said we were a 1/2 hole behind on #8 when in fact we teed off at our 8:10 time and the group ahead was already on the 2nd hole. Also on the Par 6 9th hole, one of the course workers was just setting in his cart in the middle of the fairway about 250 yds out and wouldn’t move. One of the guys hit the cart on his 2nd shot. Played both 9's in 2:10.

Tully (Delaplane, VA)


Fun course straddling the Carolinas. Par 6 is crazy finish!

Michael (Cranford, NJ)


Overall a great time. Course was challenging yet playable. 18th was fun.

Carolyn (Toledo, OH)


Wet and soggy grass planted to late and trying to catch up, poor groundskeeping. Puddles and wet spot everywhere. Greens need attention but not being worked on. Overpriced compared to others we played with.
