Myrtlewood Golf Club - PineHills Course

  • Overall: - 8.20

"The Pines" course at Myrtlewood was originated in 1966, until it was revamped and redesigned by famous architect Arthur Hills and simply renamed PineHills. After its facelift, PineHills was nominated by Golf Digest in 1994 as "best new resort course."  One of the best parts of PineHills is its central location.  Located off of 48th Ave. North and Hwy. 17 Bypass, PineHills is right in the heart of Myrtle Beach, thus making it very attractive to most tourists who don't have the desire to travel long distances. Offering the best bang for your buck, the PineHills course at Myrtlewood Golf Club is very reasonably priced for the type of golf course you get in return.

PineHills is very well maintained with its Tiff Dwarf Bermuda greens and fairways and measures 6,600 yards from the back tees. The length of the course makes PineHills great for the ladies while also challenging the men with the strategically placed trees and bunkers.  Holes #7 and #18 truly are great holes and offer up some great risk-reward shots.  #7 stretches all of 365 yards from the back tees but with a slight dogleg right, rough and water lining the left side and bunkers all down the right center this hole makes for a strategic tee shot, if you hit driver you may find yourself in the water that isn't visible from the tee box. #18 is very similar to #7.  The finishing hole at PineHills is a 403 yard par 4 that is also a slight dogleg right. Your tee shot if struck well will clear the bunkers that line the right center of the fairway and the ball should roll down into a gully leaving you a little wedge shot into a water and bunker protected green.

  • Reid - Called pro shop for tee time on Palmetto course. Shop said greens 80% heeled after maintenance. Very disappointed after we loaded carts and were sent to Pine Hills course. I tried to politely voice my concern, but was totally ignored. Would have never played Pine Hills with so many other choices for less money and better layout. Greens in horrible condition. Fairways and tee boxes very nice, but greens not even close to 80% heeled. - 06/23/2016 - 6

  • Jeff - Well maintained course, nice place to play early on in your golf trip. Great view off the deck for lunch. Pro shop friendly and well stocked. - 04/04/2016 - 9

  • Timothy - The course was wet, so cart path only. The staff were pleasant to deal with which makes for a nice day. It's very wet so it plays long. The greens were a little sluggish but playable. The only thing that was negative was the guy SMOKING in the crowd at the bag drop, I don't think that the staff should allow smoking near the customers. - 02/03/2016 - 9

  • Eddie - I had a tee time booked for 9 a.m. on New Year's Day. The practice range was closed which was understandable and expected. My 9 a.m. tee time was given to a huge group outing on this course. To be flexible and understanding I told the attendant that my party would be happy to move our tee time to the Myrtlewood Palmetto Course. The starter was very nice and explained the rules and restrictions completely. On the third hole, a group of golfers were behind us. The group behind us yelled and were rude to our group as we approached to hit our balls. Mind you that the course was under water and was cart path only, also understandable and great decision by the greens staff. So we let the inconsiderate group play through. On the eight hole on our second shots the ranger told us we needed to keep up with the group on front of us. I even carried my bag on several holes so that we could stay within the pace of play. We were only maybe five minutes slower than we should have been. I told him we let them play through he said he didn't care we needed to keep up with their pace. They were running through the water soaked fairways to get to their balls. It would seem to me that the ranger would know that the play was going to be a little slower than usual because of the course conditions and restriction. The reason I know this is because I work a golf club and know how things work. My group paid $54 each to play. Our decision to do so, is it to much to ask that a ranger know the conditions and restrictions and be a little considerate to guests of the club. The cart we were assigned to was dirty, it had burnt matches and cigar wrappers in the cubbies of the cart. I would not recommend this course or courses to anyone ever. They seem to be just in the business to get the money and have no clue about customer service. If anyone chooses to play at either of these courses, just know not to expect to much from the staff. We left and didn't finish our round of golf. - 01/02/2016 - 4

  • Peter - One of my favorite courses in Myrtle Beach. Have played it on my last two trips and will continue to include it every year. Excellent layout and a good challenge for every type of golfer. All staff very friendly and helpful with local info on the course. - 10/11/2015 - 10
