Long Bay Golf Club

  • Overall: - 9.55

Upon arrival at Long Bay Golf Club, the majestic statue of “The Golden Bear,” Jack Nicklaus, is first to greet you – and serve notice that you’re in for an unparalleled, one-of-a-kind golfing experience.

Designed and opened in 1989, Long Bay boasts a series of undulating and elevated greens that have set this design apart in the Grand Strand golf scene. Its iconic par-4 10th hole is no exception, and also features a stunning arrangement of waste bunkering and moguls that’s prevalent on several holes throughout the course.

Long Bay’s series of par 3 holes showcases a stunning island green at No. 13. Its finishing hole is a sweeping par 4 that plays left to right around a lake and toward a well-guarded green – all with a stately clubhouse as part of a magnificent backdrop.

Long Bay joins Aberdeen Country Club, Colonial Charters Golf Club and River Hills Golf & Country Club as among the award-winning Founders Collection options that are conveniently located along the Myrtle Beach area’s northern “gateway.” Be sure to include it on your next golfing itinerary!

  • Sheila - My husband and I played Long Bay for the first time. The staff, especially Jason Mitchell made our experience a terrific one. We rented clubs and joined with another two of the out of town golfers. The staff was very friendly and the course was very well maintained. No gators though. We'll be back. - 08/22/2016 - 9

  • Vince - It was my first time playing Long Bay. My brother in law spoke very highly of the course and its GM Jason Mitchell and all the staff. He did not oversell. The course was in great condition even with all the heat. The Bermuda grass was tough for us northerners but that's on us. The green were well maintained and the pace of play was good. My wife and I will definitely be back. - 08/22/2016 - 10

  • Henry - Played the course in mid June and the greens were in rough shape but played about a month later and WHAT A TURN Around!! Greens are in great shape...a couple were sodded but are in good shape now. Tee to green everything is lush. - 07/21/2016 - 10

  • Joshua - I really like this course. I play it every trip down to Myrtle Beach. a few of the greens (five of them) have been re-sodded, but they are playable. The rest of the greens are fine and putted very well. Played our round in 3hrs and 30 minutes. - 07/13/2016 - 10

  • Keith - The greens on the front nine are in repair. Some have only 5-10 feet of putting surface the rest of the green is fill in turf. Probably good to pass this one up for now. - 07/05/2016 - 9
