"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.
Attempted to play this course in the early afternoon. The rate was much higher than any of the other courses in the area, $58.00. But what's worse is the treatment outsiders receive from the staff in the pro shop. Very rude very pompous and obvious they don't want outsiders playing their course. It's to bad because up until a couple years ago my kids and I would sink several hundreds of dollars into playing the course while staying at Myrtle Wood for a couple weeks. Not anymore. After the 2nd year being treated like garbage by the pro shop staff we will no longer spend any money there. There are too many options close by.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Staff very good. Course in great shape.
Great day of golf. Ended our trip with this wonderful course. We will be returning to play its sister course on our next golf trip.
The bag drop staff were some of the worst ever. There were two on duty and in the hour that I was there they didn't speak to one another once.
Course plays longer than you are led to believe, would be nice to know. Course has very deep bunkers around and before holes, another feature it would have been nice to know.
Greens too long really crusty not smooth.
Pro shop is excellent and the assistants are VERY helpful.
We also played Myrtle Beach National West and South Creek. It rained that day so we had a rough time with weather.
This was my first visit to Myrtle Beach and I loved this course. I found it to be a good mixture of easy/challenging.
This course is the best we played.
Actually my favorite course we played this trip. Will go back. For sure!
Average course in myrtle beach but fair tees and greens
For the time of the year the course was in good shape, the greens were a little slow, but overall in great shape
Overall its very good place to play
Same as above
It would of been nice to know about the slow pace of play, way to many golfers on the course at the same time. Especially having members drive anywhere they want with the carts, even on the greens..... that is just not right, I don't care if your a member or not... we don't do this on our courses.
Scored the fairways and the greens low on the survey due to the fact the course was extremely wet. Nothing that could be controlled. I walked about 700 miles that day as well due to the entire course being cart path only, again due to excessive rain.
Really like this course all around. Played Palmetto last year and loved that too.
Every thing great
Lush..great course to start ..nothing bad to say..always playable
Liked the GPS on carts.
We will not play this course again!
A nice, tight course... not overly difficult.
We had a great time
Poorly marked. You never knew what was around the corner. Schematic on the card was so small as to not be helpful.
Most holes seemed similar. Not impressed with layout.
Over seeding schedule, speed of the greens
We had one guy loose his $100 gift card and the pro shop Guy spent a great deal of his time fixing it. Great guy. Greens slow and fuzzy.
Slow play: 5+ hours. Too many holes with same dog-leg right layouts.
First time playing but enjoyed it enough to definitely come back
This course was a little harder than we thought it would be but it was a beautiful course, well taken care of and we had a great time.
Greens and fairways had been top dressed and made play less enjoyable. By far the worst conditioned course of the three weekend courses we played
Myrtlewood does a nice job handling golfing groups such as outs
Always in great condition and always fun to play.
Played 8-2-13. 7:56 am tee time. Great course and layout. Loved the course and would go back. Challenging but not too hard. Bunkers were not in best shape but rained hard the day before. Greens nice. Fairways in good shape. Fun to play and we got done in 4 hours and 10 minutes and it was packed. Did not get anything in grill but grabbed a beer from cart girl. A couple fun holes. Enjoyed the par 5 on the back where you could cut the dogleg right with drive over tall tree and go for it in 2. Must say it is only course I have played where bag attendants don't unload clubs. Didn't mind it, but found it odd. Maybe because they are so busy. I can't wait to play the Palmetto course on next trip
Convenient and hadn't been there, will play there again.
Always love playing here!
Great staff, including grill. Course is good condition. Very enjoyable time. Water was a challenge for me (lost 4 balls due to my slice). Thanks for participation in Prime Time.
The course was in excellent condition.
Walking distance from where we stayed. Very friendly people and well conditioned course.
Greens recently aerified very slow, over all pretty nice
Overall very nice course. From tees to green all was well maintained and cared for. Amazed at how quickly the course drained even in the event of a tropical storm.
You have no Marshall I have never taken that long to play a game in my life 5 1/2 hours for 18 hole s that is wrong. You apparently over book your course won't play there again
The tees, greens, fairways and ROUGH were all green and nice. Most course do NOT manicure the rough, but Myrtlewood does! It's a little slow but who cares, very good time!
The course was relatively open which made it quite forgiving, but with plenty of water to lose your ball in. The course was well marked out with distances to the pin up until 75 yards.
We had a great time and would definitely come back again
All around perfect for the course I was their at 7:15 no staff the help with the clubs doing other things.
Great Course, if you are not hitting it straight you are going to have a long day. The key to this course is not to try to over power it. Just take out a club that will get you to the 150 yard marker and take it from there.
Absolutely beautiful course. Will play again.
I think that the overall experience with your club was awesome. We were treated like members.
Great Staff that was polite, knowledgeable and eager to help make the overall golf experience wonderful. Have visited both courses many times with the top conditions. Would recommend for all levels of playing ability.
Very disrepectful. My party had 10 golfers and it appeared they were not happy with the 10 of players , that they wanted to split the group up. I explained that one of the golfers had court and was unable to come and the golfer who had started the package had passed away from cancer. I also explained that one of my party had made a hole in one two years ago on their other course. Of my years of coming done and playing , I would have to say this was my worst exprerence with a course.
Course in good shape, but play too slow.
Course was well manicured. Maybe the restauranat area could use a facelift ?
Challenging and enjoyable
Always one of my favorites including Palmetto. Just a great complex.
Overall the course was in good shape and playing it was a little easier than other courses that I played.
Always a Great selection
Overall enjoyable experience
Pine Hills was in excellent condition and the employees were exceptionally nice and helpful.
Busy course we only played nine holes because we arrived late after long drive from michigan.
Level the tees. rule 16-3: don't put cups in severe slopes. don't put cup liners at top of cup.
Beautiful considering the time of the year. Interesting layouts with a few terrific holes. Most woman friendly courses I've seen in Myrtle Beach. New sand in bunkers was excellent.
Second time playing this course and it is one that I would come back and play again.
Second time playing this course and it is one that I would come back and play again.
Course was great.
Good course to start begin with. Everyone friendly and helpful. Tees, fairways, and greens in great shape for January.
I didn't enjoy playing this course. The abundance of sand traps and water on the course made for a difficult round. Although I shot only a couple of strokes worse than the others, I did not have fun. I would not play this course again if I didn't have to.
Pin placements were not for recreational play but more for tournament play. Too many sand traps.
Only got an afternoon nine in but man this course is a gem.
Have played both Myrtlewood courses and both times the experience was a very good one. I expect I will be back in the near future.
Nice golf course. Have played it a number of times. They just got new golf carts. Greens were slow and bumpy (due to the over-seeding). I'm sure they will be back to normal shortly.
I really like this course, it is always in good shape. Pro shop staff and starters are very good.
The fairways were in excellent shape.
Very nice course - will be back!
A good starter course for the group.
Good course, superior greens.
Pace of play was very good.
Though not a long course, the bunkering and presence of water provided plenty of challenge for my level of play.
I prefer Palmetto, but it is a good golf course.
Played South course of Myrtle Beach course. Good for seniors.
Greens were not up to par because of seeding.
Always like these courses, make you feel at home, comfortable, great start of the week courses.
This is our favorite at Myrtlewood. Shorter than Palmetto, we had many more chances at hitting the greens in reg. Just beautiful!
Play moved along. Open airways very forgiving if you didn't hit is straight.
A fun, but challenging course. Well kept, with an excellent staff. They do it right!
Greens could be healthier.
Course was in great shape, played in 4 1/2 hours on a Sunday holiday weekend.
Loved everything about the course, except tees too long.
Great course in excellent condition. Lots of bunkers of which I found most. Wide fairways made the course playable for all. My only complaint is the greens were very slow!!!
Good golf course, great condition.
Good positions for ladies tees.
I had called and made a starting time at Myrtlewood. When I questioned the price, he referred me back to the online reservation. When I made a reservation through you and called back, he politely canceled the prior reservation I had made. It was a pleasant, no-hassle day.
I felt I had to write a review after hearing via word of mouth the day before we were golfing about how bad of shape this course was in and reading one of the reviews. This course was in good shape, everyone was friendly and we had no bad experiences (other than the one player would have liked a better score :)). We were going to play Palmetto in the afternoon and we had over an hour to wait after done at Pine Hills so the guys called over to Pine Lakes and got us in there. It was very much appreciated. Great customer service!
Great course and friendly staff, was a pretty good back up at the start, it was Labor Day though.
(Would like to have known prior to play) that if we came with 2 golfers that we would be paired with someone else.
The course is short but lots of fun!
Unfortunately, the course was very wet. Otherwise, it was nice.
Rained after 4 holes.
A late add-on course before I left because of the price and proximity to where I was staying. What a pleasant surprise, a lot of really nice holes, I was very impressed with the greens and traps. Didn't play well today but that was my fault. Very nice course,I would recommend it.
Liked the placement of bunkers - enjoyed the risk reward of the holes. Very fun to play.
The condition of the course was poor.
Had a great time will definitely return and will certainly use Ambassador Golf again.
Very happy with the course - enjoyed playing there and plan to play in the future.
I will put this on my favorites lists. Even though it rained me out after the 9th hole. Great course!
Greens were not in great condition. Older course with sand base greens and most of them has been recently aerated. Waited way to long to cut grass on the course ... clumps everywhere. Tee boxes a little rough to other courses in the area. I would rate it a 7 out of 10, mostly because of the price.
Really well laid out course and nicely manicured. Would definitely recommend to others and plan to play again in the future.
Enjoyed the round and the course layout. Great placement of ponds and traps. Course is sets up fair and there is ample fairway.
The course was in excellent shape, really enjoyed the group that they put me with, would have been nice if greens would've represented the practice greens.
Great all around experience. Would recommend to friends.
Greens were slow due to verticut and sanding.
Play every year when on vacation. Love this course.
Solid, fun course, nothing spectacular but good for what I paid, especially in a resort area. Smooth check-in, round a bit long at about 5 hours.
Nice layout. Enjoyed our round. Staff was very friendly.
I have played golf many times over the years and I have to say this course was one of the best maintained courses I have EVER played. The grounds crew keeps it in BEAUTIFUL shape. I would recommend this course to anyone.
(Would like to have known prior to play) that this course was really challenging!
Very nice course.
The course was in amazing shape, I can't begin to tell how impressed I was with everything, I will be back.
The course was in great shape. We enjoy being able to practice on the putting green.
Nice course, open fairways, plenty of water and sand traps for the average golfer. Ambassador Golf gave my family a great value for an above average Myrtle Beach golf course. Staff was very professional.
Great range, and chipping area to get you ready to start the round. Not a long course, but a great design that makes you think it through. Pars are a good score on most holes, but birdie chances definitely exist. Water and bunkers strategically placed make shaping shots a must. Had a great experience and would definitely come back, just to try the Palmetto Course.
Friendly and well staffed facility. Greens were fantastic. Fairways and overall golf course layout was excellent. Price was unbeatable. Would play here again.
OK, first time @ this course. Will not be the last! Very nice, water in play on a number of holes but not a real problem. Course uses in-ground yardage markers. This will slow you down if you do not have GPS or range finder. Green were FIRM but not as fast as they looked. Need to carry clubs to range as bags are not but on cart until 10 minutes before tee time. Why I don't know. Bottom line this is a nice course to play. Enjoy.
Enjoyed the layout, staff very helpful, very nice clubhouse.
(Liked the) layout.
Great shape and good challenge!
The course was very challenging, tons of sand to play in. It appeared that the greens were recently aerated which made the greens terribly slow and hard, hard to get in the hang of.
Nice course, rate of $42 was competitive, will play there again.
Lucky to get a game in every year before they aerate it. Feels like home. Played it for 42 years. Good enough for a higher handicapper.
(Would like to have had) golf lessons and tips on how to play better.
Just a great place to play on both courses. Manicured very well. Straight up and down fairways. Not a lot of hazards. Highly recommend for your first round of golf to get warmed up.
Staff was outstanding.
Fairways were in great shape, but very wet due to an excessive amount of rain the two previous days.
Good condition, lots of sand, easy course if you are playing well.
Pleasant surprise, course was in great shape. Will come back - played extra nine no problem.
Play was fast for first 9 but got slow with an inexperienced foursome in front of us on back 9. Nice course and a good value for the money. Will play again.
Great course. Definitely would play again.
Excellent experience all around, as usual. Myrtlewood has always been the most favorite course to play for both my wife and I.
An excruciatingly slow pace of play; round took well over 5 hours. Course was (or so it appeared) putting as many people out as they could whether they had a tee time or not to the detriment of all. On top a that, a truly unremarkable golf course.
We tried to play a second time on Sat., April 28th before we left for home. The first 9 went quick but the second nine we left after finishing 2 holes because we spent 20 minutes waiting at each hole and the 3rd hole there was still 2 groups at the tee off. The marshall should have found out what was holding all the groups up.
Did not know they were double booking tee times which we had to wait for after the first nine played.
Enjoyed the course a lot. They had an outstanding replay rate.
Very playable course. Greens in great shape but on the slow side. Many opportunities for penalties with an errant shot. Played in under 4 hours but course not crowded.
Great course - open, easy to play but some greens which were very tough.
Nice layout, in good shape, not overly difficult. A little upset that Golf Now tee time wouldn't function, and ended up paying an extra 8 bucks to play. Played in a little over 4 hours, which was a refreshing change at this time of year.
(Would like to have seen) beverage cart more frequently.
Course was OK. What made the day was our early arrival and being able to go out early.
Great course for our skill level.
Don't like their greens.
Overall, course was in good condition.
Greens overseeded, slow and bumpy; were able to ride much more enjoyable River Hills (excellent course).
PineHills was in great shape, with Palmetto just a little soggy in several of the fairways. Very friendly, and would certainly recommend playing this course.
Fast play, well-placed bunkers, tricky greens.
Challenging but forgiving course.
Greens were great!
We enjoyed our round ... we were a little stiff after traveling 4+ hours riding ... have played the course several times in the past and have always enjoyed the layout and hospitality the course gives.
(Liked the) hole layout; semi-difficult.
Everything was in great shape. The only drawback was the green were way too fast.
I had an excellent time there from the bag drop to the people I was paired up with. The greens and the fairways were in excellent shape, all of your par threes were moderately tough. Was shooting a great round, somehow lost my concentration on the 18th hole. However, it was a great experience.
Good course, have played many times.
Everyone was very nice, they put fathers and sons together. Course in good shape. Just a very good golf experience.
It's just another great course, like Palmetto or any other I've played over the years.
Golfer-friendly course that was in excellent shape. Friendly staff.
Great food in the grill.
Very pleasant surprise, course was in great condition especially the greens.
The people in the pro shop were most helpful. We had a great experience there and look forward to our next trip east.
Found the course very enjoyable.
Beautiful course. The greens were not extremely complex, but ran very nicely.
Very good course.
The front nine is all of the course, the back nine is the place to make up for all your front problems, but would love to play it every year.
Very nice course. good condition. Had an 8:22 tee time. Teed off 15 minutes late. Quit after 15 holes and 4:30 on the course. Was going to be a 5:30 round. Marshall was polite and tried to move people along but did not work.
Wide open, nice course.
Very good condition, have played in past and was in the best shape ever. Highly recommend playing.
4/20/10 Excellent conditions on the fairways. The greens were a little more furry than I am used to. However, I usually play on bent grass and am not familiar with bermuda greens. Generally the course was in very good condition and I would recommend it. Plus, I got a hole-in-one on 17. Arthur Hills makes an interesting but demanding course. You better be good with your sand iron on this course.
We always play Myrtlewood. It's usually our 1st course.
We really enjoyed our round. Spend the $3 and get the Yardage Book - it was our first time playing Myrtlewood and it really helped!
Easy to find.
Holes were too similar and flat. Greens were in very bad condition. Attendants left something to be desired. A friendly attitude always helps. Would not play this course again.
The greens where not as good this year as they were in years past. I undertsand that you have had alot or rain and I assume that is part of the reason.
Great but cart path only.
Greens were extremely slow, just overseeded. Was not expecting the greens to have been just overseeded. Should have been done 4-6 weeks ago which was what I was expecting. None of our 8 people enjoyed this round. Wish we could have gotten our money back and played somewhere else. Miserable.
We did not like the greens. They were very fast.
Pinehills is a bit less fun than Myrtlewood's Palmetto course but it will still keep the golfer interested throughout all 18 holes. A lot of doglegs, but never really a blind shot where you won't see the target. A lot of holes present the golfer with a risk/reward decision to make on the tee box, which is always fun. Greens, fairways, and tees are in decent shape. Hard to find trouble other than water hazards. Overall a very solid course, but try and play the Palmetto course if you can.
Starting area not very organized on the day we played, 9/17/09. Greens not in best condition. This was just an OK course for me.
Every time I play here the course is in excellent condition.
Excellent golf course, we enjoyed it.
Good Starter Course
