This course is one of three beauties at this 54-hole golf resort. It is rated with 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest’s “Places to Play.” Parkland contains a unique course layout with large TifEagle Bermuda greens, well-manicured fairways and deep, soft sand bunkers. Parkland is different than the other courses at Legends in that the holes are all tree lined giving it more of a park-like feel. There are four tee boxes that provide a challenge for any golfer's skill level.
One of the more popular holes at Parkland is the par 5 #11. It is a long hole with bunkers that come into play off the tee. The green is protected by bunkers with water in front providing an opportunity to take a gamble for a good score. This hole along with the rest of the course makes every golfer think their way around the course. It is a course that allows you use every club in your bag.
Second day on Parkland and overbooking splits makes for 5 plus hour rounds. Really ruins the experience, 2 hour fronts and three plus hour backs.
ok course. greens were slick and inconsistent. cart path only the day we played club house was good practice facilities are outstanding
#11 thru #14 good stretch of golf... Closing hole and opening holes not much.
Course was great.
Will play here again.
The starters and marshals are so friendly and helpful.
Started in downpour, came in after 3 holes following second cloudburst. VERY disappointed that rain check only good for 9 holes when the couple we were to play with rec. full rain check when they walked off the first tee and we gritted it out for the 4th day in a row until totally drenched! The course was really unplayable by then - puddle next to hole on no. 11 green (started on ten) and small stream running through!
DISAPPOINTED! We played the Moorland 2 weeks ago and it was excellent and we had a great time. BUT the Parkland course is a total disappointment today. The tees and greens were okay but the greens are the worst of any course that I have played this year. They haven't run a mower or rolled these in weeks. Go elsewhere to play. The traps are in desperate need of attention as well some are rock hard without any sand and some are loaded with a soft sand but also FOOTPRINTS that have been there for weeks. It appears nobody is working the traps. I try to give an honest review without any hard feelings so believe this review and play the Moorland, it is very playable, but I will not return to the Parkland until I see some serious reviews showing improvements to the course.
This course was more playable than the other two Legends courses, but the greens are just as unplayable as the Heathland and Moorland.
My comments about Parkland echo those about Heathland. My group is familiar with the three courses at the main Legends complex. In fact, we also played the first hole on Moorland the next day after Heathland and Parkland; but we were then greeted by a torrent of rain. Rain checks (that never expire) were issued promptly and cheerfully. We highly recommend all of the Legends group golf courses.
Long, after playing Heathland, you better have your long irons dialed in.
Course was in excellent shape. Large greens were in excellent shape especially for this time of year and the amount of play the complex receives. The attendants at the bag drop and starters at each course were polite and helpful. I cannot say the same thing about the gentlemen behind the desk in the pro shop. Some of them were rude and acted as though they were put out that they had to deal with our group in assisting us for a replay. Ladies in the grill however, were wonderful.
We played Parkland and Moorland ... courses were nice, we played the green tees because of our handicaps ... the course could be better marked at the tee areas, we passed a couple without knowing it and was confused on the last hole which flag to hit to ... golf buddy showed us...
Course was over seeded, and was very wet in the fairways and around the greens. The cups had plastic rings on top of the cup, which tended to raise up as the day went on.
Had not played a Legends course in 20 years due to rude rangers. Decided to try again. Course was in good shape, greens very good. I liked the layout of Parkland. Now the bad. Tee time for 12:52 pm. Teed off at 1:30 pm and we were the first tee time of the afternoon. First nine took 3 hours and 15 minutes. At one time on a par three there was one group on the green, one on the tee and two foursomes waiting. The only time we saw a ranger was going to the 18th tee (we started on the back, they double tee) and he only asked if we were the first group in the afternoon. Started the second nine and a twosome came up behind us. We recognized the two from behind us on the first nine. We told them to play thru as the other twosome left because play was so bad on the first nine. By the third hole another two some appeared. We were going to let them play thru but notice another twosome behind them. My point is people were leaving the course because of such slow play. Never saw a ranger on our back nine and saw nobody when we turned the cart in. Went to use our lunch ticket and they said it was only 11:00 - 5 and it was after 6. Oh well, slow play, late start but the grill staff goes home early. Will never play a Legends course again for at least 20 years.
Had a bit of trouble finding next tee. If you are not familiar with courses.
Legends does an excellent job of moving golfers through the chaotic bag drop. Parkland was in excellent shape, but the greens were very inconsistent, and slow for a 1:00 round. Overall, a great experience. A great value, as the round included lunch and 2 drinks.
Enjoyed course and round. Staff very good but loading area much too much of a hassle due to three loading areas plus with double teeing, groups aren't sent to tees as a complete group. Its nice to have your entire group go the 1st tee.
The inside staff is getting better every day from Wednesday to Friday.
Played these 3 course complex several times this is the best of the 3. This time ,and playing my last round. I came to the conclusion ,that these courses have gone for resort to more of a golf factory. the greens are not true and the has to do with the amount of play the are subjected to.and when was the last time they replaced the chairs at the grill bar , my guess is never. But you get what you pay for . next time I will spend a little more. I will not be going back to the 3 factory courses anytime soon. To bad when I 1st played the course 13 years ago they were some of the the finest in myrtle.
Tough course for an average player. Severe traps (height) and difficult to recover from.
Not in as good a condition as previous vists
Second round replay, and the Parkland is a nice course. It rained on the front nine, literally pouring on ##9 so we were thinking about quitting; however, we continued on and finished quickly as everyone else stopped and we had the back 9 to ourselves. The Parkland is in excellent shape...fairways and greens excellent. Because of the rain, it was cart path only, so the mounding created a lot of stress on the calves! Great exercise, though. The Legends does an exceptional job in keeping all three courses in great shape given the amount of play. Kudos to the Superintendent and staff! Parkland has wide fairways and is fair, with a nice balance of challenge and chances for success. The greens are also large. Easier than the Moorland, so you might want to start on this one if you want something a little easier to start.
Late on T Times, 5 1/2 hour rounds,
Really good golf course
The starter at the first tee really got upset at the tees we chose to play (white) he suggested that we move up a tee box. When we denied to, he seemed to become agitated with our entire group (12). This was our 17th annual trip to Myrtle Beach to play golf, and most of our group had played here at least twice before, but he didn't want to listen to us. Thank goodness that the starter from the prior day was the ranger later on in this round and he was more than pleasant, and apologized for his counterparts demeanor. Will still put this course on our playlist again!
A good course but as others have said, pick the correct tees for your game. The whites play long with some difficult carries. Getting breakfast before you play and lunch afterwards is a great end to the round. We will return. We played it on 1/27/14 and it was in good shape although some of the fairways and greens have been painted, the greens still ran true. Enjoyed the day and will go back.
All in all a very nice course, but sadly we played it the day after playing Kings North and no greens in the MB area can compare to those. Not as scenic of a course as the other 2 at The Legends as it is built around the villas. A good test of golf, greens has a lot of grain making then tough to read. Some tough forced carries for the higher handicap guys in our group, but all in all still a very nice track.
Nice course, rained prior to playing and course was very playable, one would think with such a nice clubhouse that the roof wouldn't leak like a seive
Would not play any of the Legends courses again too may golfers think courses are over booked People in pro shop are rude.
Our group was forced to wait over 30 minutes past our tee time before starting. this caused some of your group to finish golfing in near dark conditions
Overgrown tees and fairways. Cart paths only for overseas, wasn't needed
Played 9/28/13. Tee,fairways,greens in great conditon. Staff was fantastic. Pace of play was great. Sometimes it can be slow here, but not today. Love the layout. I always enjoy playing here. Never been disappointed.
Great conditions and helpful staff. Yardage books waiting in our carts was a nice touch as were the lunch and drink coupons. Reachable par 4 was fun to go for. Fair test of golf. Don't be afraid to tee from the green tees for an enjoyable round.
Parkland was a fun and fair course, the conditions were great and the pace of play good.
Loved the layout, it was a mix of traditional and links style. you could tell the greens had been aerated, but out of all the legends courses it was easily the most grown in loved the greens.
Played 6/1. Course was in great shape. Plays really long from white tees. Especially long par 4s into the wind. Great shape tee to green. Beautiful layout. Staff was very nice. Grill and wait staff were excellent. Always like playing this course.
We (eight couples) did not like much about our experience at your golf factory. Very little info was provided and we had to ask repeated questions. Once on the course the starter hassled us to play faster. We are not slow players. I will not be back nor will I recommend your golf factory.
Great course will play again in future.
Very nice course but the starting tees were not where they should of been. The length was not was it was written on the scorecard. We were often at the same tee box with the ladies. Should of played a further teebox. Little bit disappointed.
Cold, windy, and wet day for golf. The course was in great shape but the greens were quite unfair. There was always a difficult break at every pin position.
Third time I've played this course, it will be the last. Nice course but the staff was something to be desired, most unfriendly bunch I've run into down there, if you don't like your job, go somewhere else. I know it was raining and it was cold......get over it, I did and played 18, no need to be nasty to the golfers on the course OR at check in! Free lunch ticket we tried to use after golf..........but they neglected to tell us they CLOSED the clubhouse at 3pm! Could have let us know at the turn but nooooooooooo.
Tee time was was 1:56 PM. Did not get off until 2:30. Extremely slow play(3+ hours front nine). Was only able to play 9 holes before having to quit due to darkness. Very poor tee time scheduling by course. Will not play at Legends complex again. Course itself was nice.
As always great condition great facility. Legends always on my list to play each year.
Enjoyed the day, much easier on the eyes than Moorland.
Nice course. Seemed easiest of the week, but that might be because I played much better. Ranger upset my group by pushing us to pick up the pace after we had been waiting for 6 holes because they allowed a slow fivesome to play. They should have split them up!!!
Good course - never play well on it.
Love this course even tho every time I play it, it's blowing 20 mph! Had a great time!
The more I play this complex the more I like it. Everything seems to always go well and run smoothly and no matter which course you play there it always seems to be in great shape. Kudos to everyone working in the grill. The lunches that we ordered were all delicious and the staff was some of the most polite and gracious I've encountered at the beach and they seemed to enjoy having us there. Wonderful!
Nice layout. Enjoy playing the course.
I like the conditions, but did not love the layout. Specifically the bunkers in the middle of fairways. Also, so many houses close to the course.
Course was in great shape. I didn't like it as much as Moorland but still a great course to play.
Too many, too close together. Takes forever to play. Never going back, ever. Lousy round. Nice track, course, but not worth the frustration of waiting on every shot.
Good course but pace of play is terrible. 8 minute tee times, they are interested in volume not quality of play. Will not be back.
Course marshal needed an attitude adjustment, telling us to speed up because we were 10 min. behind. In fact, there was a huge open course in front of us when we went off. he came back later and gave our group of 4 (grief) for letting a group of 2 play through. We had no business doing that. Sorry, did not get his name but what a piece of work. Kind of through us off our game for the day.
Our 2 groups were held up by an extremely slow 4-some in front of us and although the ranger said early in the round he would get them to hurry up he didn't. We were thus not able to complete our round as we had an afternoon flight to catch.
RIP OFF! Played Parkland today, 10/15/12. Course was over seeded over a week ago and fairways had not been cut since. Add to this the fact that they have watered extensively to promote grass growth and it was a horrible experience. Wet, soggy and the fairways were like playing out of deep rough. AND THEY HAD THE NERVE to charge premium rates. Go somewhere else ... Everywhere else I have played (Hilton head, Mexico, etc) - they know the overseeding schedule and discount the rates or at least warn you when you book your tee time. Parkland just took the money and said it's not our fault ...
Parkland was also a great golf experience, although we had to take a rain check on the back nine due to weather conditions. It's only flaw was not being named Moorland.
Liked: All the experience. Unliked: Pro shop staff's hospitality.
You need to get your pro shop and bag guys and starters and marshalls all on the same page. The large groups you could not control, made our golfing experience a poor one.
Fun and challenging course. Love the atmosphere of the whole Legends complex. Staff was great, our GPS took us to the far side of the course, completely opposite to the entrance and when we called the course they were very accommodating to give us a later tee time. Great service in the bar/dining room, got us fed and out to our first tee in ample time.
Beautiful course from tee to green and challenging course.
Great course, great layout. Greens were a little slow, but in wonderful shape.
Great course, great layout. Greens were a little slow, but in wonderful shape.
Really soft greens, deep bunkers though the sand could use some work. There were a few thin spots on fairways and tee boxes but really pretty good shape overall considering the heat.
The course was in great shape and we have nothing to say about that but what we did have an issue with was the 5 1/2-hour round. The marshall informed us on the 3rd hole that a group was tying up the course and he was going to either speed them up or kick them off. Neither happened and to make matters worst when we did finally finish and were looking for a replay but we had missed the opportunity as there were no tee times available on the other two courses. Pro shop staff was not very accommodating and, to make matters even worse, who did we see got to do a replay were the clowns that tied us up all day. And by this time they were good and juiced up but they were going to let them go again regardless. Shame on you, Legends, for allowing this to happen, these would be the last people I would allow back on the course after watching them all day bring everyone to a grinding halt. I feel sorry for the groups that were scheduled to go behind them for their second round, I can only imagine how long that would have taken. Won't see us at the Legends again, great courses but bad management of time. If the almighty $$$ is what you want keep running it like this, you will soon see it fade away.
On a hot day some shade would have been nice.
Outstanding layout, haven't been here in quite a few years and disappointed that I left it for awhile. Conditions were fantastic from tee to green.
Very nice course! Liked the layout, and the variety of the holes, challenge of the greens. The starter told us to go faster on the front nine when we were falling behind the group ahead of us (even though we were keeping a good time). To help groups play faster, I think the starter/pro shop should talk to groups at the start and encourage people to play tees appropriate to their handicap.
Excellent condition. Greens ran true and were responsive. Great practice facilities and clubhouse. Free sandwich and beer vouchers are and great addition. Keep it up...
The layout is challenging but fair. Fairways and tees are in great shape. Pace of play is dreadful. We played a 3-hour front nine after starting at 2 p.m. and being told that the course doesn't tolerate slow play. Starters allowed us to switch course to different back nine. The 8 a.m. start took 4 hours 50 minutes.
Great complex - very busy.
My second favorite at Legends. This place is a factory, but pace of play was good this year - 4.25 hrs .
My second favorite at Legends. This place is a factory, but pace of play was good this year - 4.25 hrs.
Everything was outstanding.
Great shape; would like to do it again.
Only thing is pairing us up with another; we come down to talk business and play a little golf; we'd like to know more about this beforehand.
Somewhat more difficult for the average golfer. Started almost 45 minutes late. Not on the list for next year.
An awesome course - would highly recommend for any golfer; difficult but fair long!
Just a great layout day in and day out. Condition excellent. Tees were not in proper places on some holes. We had a couple seniors ... good golfers and green tees on a few holes were set in the fairway. Put the green tees where they should be. The deal at Legends is second to none with breakfast, lunch, and two drinks.
The course was in great shape. The greens were as the starter told us ... FAST. Everyone of our group told me, as we were sitting in the pub after our round, Legends has to be on our list for next year. Only complaint ... need a ladder to get in some of the pot bunkers. J/K. Had a great time and will play the other Legends courses in the near future.
Just way too long for women - many holes could be shortened so that you did not have to lay up 80 yards to go over something with a 100-yard carry.
Love the style of this course.
We were able to do the front 9 in 1 hour and 45 mins. When we got to the back 9 we had to wait for people teeing off and it took over 3 hours to play the back 9 alone. This did not make us very happy.
Conditions were good, but the rain and overseeding led to CPO. Parkland is a challenge. Play your comfortable yardage, not the tee color, because the white tees are 6500 and the green tees are 6100. The fairways are wide and the undulating greens are huge, but stay out of the deep bunkers, especially the bunker in front of #9. These greens provide some fun putts and 3-putt opportunities.
I'm a local. Courses themselves are awesome layouts. Usually in good condition. Staff not the nicest. Rounds take forever. They normally overbook. 2-2hr 15min. front, 20-30 min. wait at the turn, due to overbooking, 3-3 1/2 hr. back 9. Can't remember last time we finished in under 5 1/2 hrs. Same at all 3 courses. Lunch was the best part.
Played at Parkland two days ago. The course is in pretty good condition, but it was a 5-hour round of golf. There was a ranger on the course, I wonder what he was doing.
Service in the pro shop and grill was superior. The course was cart path only due to seeding & watering and it made for a very, very long day. We were pared with another group that was about 78 years old and it was hard for them to keep up. We never fell behind but on 4 separate occasions we were told to pick up the place of play. How can you fall behind when you have to wait on every shot for the group in front to clear the landing area? When the course is cart path only due to overseeded in the fall and wet or just wet, the tee times need to be adjusted to allow for a slower pace of play. I was told the place had become a bit of a golf course factory, but I chose to play their anyway. That's a mistake I won't make again.
My lower back was demolished by the time we got to Parkland, but I had my lowest score of the week. This alone makes it my favorite course of the trip.
Best of the three (courses I played) - greens in better shape.
Best of our vacation.
Did not like cart path only.
Course very wet - can't help the weather but very difficult to play from cart-path-only. 5+ hour round and long, long day.
Really well-manicured and actually wet in many parts of the fairway.
Course was in great shape, I just wish I would have known the greens were just aerated.
Nice course to start the holiday. unfortunately it took a long time to play ... well over 5 hours.
I recommend you tell future players to avoid this place. Was good in past, but they are overbooking and round took 6 hours. Very bad experience.
All Legends courses in great condition, the staff was great and the free lunches were very good. We played this one first since it was supposed to be 'easier'. Not easy, but in fantastic condition.
Played many times in past years at Parkland because it's one of my favorite MB courses. But this time, the golf experience itself was bad because they packed and I mean packed the course and it took 5h 15 to play our round. Many times on par 3's where we would be 3 foursomes at a time ...
Overall, a very good experience. The only drawback was the greens. They were very slow and our entire foursome didn't make any distance putts all day because there was never any extra roll. The ball would most often veer left or right at the hole. Fairways and tee boxes were all in excellent condition. All staff were friendly and most accommodating.
We played a doubleheader at Parkland and Heathland. The staff at the Parkland was efficient and helpful both in the pro shop and the loading area. Quite enjoyed the heavy bunkering on the course. The hole layouts were challenging and you simply had to hit good shots to score well. If you screwed up you paid for it on the scorecard. This course was good value. The greens were a bit slow but the speeds were consistent.
Course was in great shape and was a fair test for mid-range handicappers. Sand in bunkers was consistent, but some are quite a challenge.
Great waitresses, stale Bass ale.
The course was in excellent condition and had a good mix of challenging holes.
Course was in great shape.
Saw more beaver damage than birdies!
Not aware of food and beverage inclusion prior to arrival.
Overbooked and slow to get players on course. Had to finish last few holes in the dark. Poor customer service and total lack of concern for making things right. Will not play here again.
I played this in the afternoon as my second round of the day. I paid for 18 holes but managed to finish 9 holes in 3 hours. This is the worst experience I have had in Myrtle Beach in the 5 years I've been coming. I will make sure everyone who asks knows of the slow play and overbooking done at the Legends courses. I know I will not be a return customer.
The clubhouse and the service at Legends are awesome.
Played Parkland on Oct. 21 as our third Legends course. The easiest of the 3 even though there are more trees and housing. The staff was friendly and even though it was quite busy (5-hr. round) we were able to get a replay on Moorland.
Lunch menu has changed for the worse. Otherwise, a great golfing experience.
Legends Parkland was in good shape; however the pace of play was very long.
Had not originally planned to play here but did as an afternoon replay. Glad I did, very nice course and quite different layout than other 2 Legends courses. Slightly narrower fairways and many holes have nice trees. Only odd thing was wheeling our way between so many holes and houses.
Played on 10/11/10, course was very busy thus causing a 5+ hour round ... however, I didn't seem to care because I loved the course, layout, scenery, greens, etc. - were all great. This course is not easy, especially the first time you play it, but I still would recommend it.
No complaints here. Course was in good shape.
Beautiful course yet not easy at all. Choose the right set of tees as it is long and narrow from the back.
Great course. Had something to offer everyone.
(Would like to have known prior to play) how deep the bunkers were, but I played the bunkers fairly well. Enjoyed the course.
Good experience, enjoyed the course.
Love the clubhouse and driving range, very nice and large. Have stayed on the property before and loved the housing and the pub/restaurants.
Very well organized. We started right on time. The waitresses during breakfast and lunch were very attentive. Overall staff very friendly and made the foursome feel really comfortable.
Legends (Parkland) was a good course, very challenging holes and the yardage book helped a lot. We did not get a chance to play a second round, but, the pro shop did call around to other courses to see if we could play somewhere else. The pro shop was able to get us out at Arrowhead, which was another beautiful course.
I liked the $15 pro shop certificate and the complimentary food and drink.
Nice course, in good condition, worth the price to play.
Greens again were slow. The grill for lunch was very crowded and we could not get a server to serve us.
Played all three (Legends) courses, and loved them all. Great experience.
Overall very good experience - played Moorland last year.
Course was in great condition! Challenging, yet fair. Everyone was very polite and helpful. Definitely recommended as a MUST play in MB.
Very friendly staff; had an excellent time.
Best of the three courses we played.
This time of the year, green tuned golden color. It was totally different experience from green fairway, but it was good.
First crack at the Parkland course, and I was impressed with the layout. Longest of 3 at Legends, and in cold, soggy conditions, you certainly notice it. Some very difficult par 3's and a few long par 4's make for a challenging round. Greens were a little rough and bumpy all week, but that was the only disappointment. Through the green was in excellent condition. Starters were fantastic with our group all week long and very attentitive. Best practice area I've found at the beach, and pro shop and grill are fantastic.
They had too many tees moved up (a lot too). We should have been told about this on the 1st tee because it would have changed our minds about which tees to play.
Great course, great staff. A little long considering the wind and there did not seem to be enough fairway distance markers.
Pace of play was terrible. Had to wait on every shot, cart-path only slowed play significantly
Fairways and greens were in good shape except for one green. Tee boxes were in bad shape.
Hard course for women; will be back to try the other two.
Played April 1, 2008: Legends Parkland was great. Very well maintained.
