Prestwick Country Club is one of the most unique courses in Myrtle Beach, presenting natural hazards like whispering creeks and small lakes. Surrounding the entire course are dense pine forests and man-made knolls that give the added challenge to reach these deep bulkhead greens in regulation. Prestwick has been a prestigious course that does not go without being recognized – including “5 Best Kept Secret Courses in America” by Golf Digest (2004) and 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” guide (2006), and the SC Golf Rating Panel’s designation as among the “30 Best Courses You Play” (2004).

No. 14 at Prestwick has been ranked in the top 18 on the Beach. This 409-yard par 4 proves to be extremely difficult with a water hazard in play and a very undulating landing area on the tee shot. The approach shot must be from the fairway to have a chance at the green with uphill slope that will require an extra club. The other featured hole is the par-5  No. 9, playing at 486-yards; golfers must favor the right side of the fairway while avoiding an errant shot into deep bunkers that surround the right side of the green.

There isn't a nicer course in Myrtle Beach. There are only a couple of easy holes on the course. You have to bring your A game and pay attention every shot. It's in great condition, as usual.

ok course average conditions compared to other courses.

Great layout! Every hole brings a new challenge. Fairways and greens are perfect. Slick surfaces make for great putting on undulating greens with a true roll. Staff is friendly and top notch! Will be back for sure!

This is a great golf course, very challenging, but fair. Typical Pete Dye design with a lot of problems if your not hitting the ball straight. Greens were fantastic and quite fast. Much friendlier atmosphere now compared to when it was a private club. Worth the money.

Maggie Mereand

02/11/2017

Very nice course. In excellent condition. The greens were exceptionally fast in the wind. They had two sets of tees for the ladies which is nice and unusual. Thought the course was challenging, after all it is a Dye course, yet fair for ladies.

Danny

This course is a must play when in the Myrtle Beach area. This course is in phenomenal shape for February. The staff is extremly friendly and courteous and answered any questions my group had. Greens are extremely fast and makes your incoming shot very important. This course will be on our list when back in the area,

Lee

The course was in excellent condition and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The course is laid out very well with no parallel fairways. The first nine is tree lined while the back nine is more links style. The greens were fast, but putted true. It is a good test of your golf game. I would recommend that you move up a tee box from where your normally play because the course tends to play long.

Jason

Challenging course that makes you hit all the shots! Greens are the best I've played at the beach. Staff was very helpful and friendly with exceptional service. It was a busy day and we played in less than 4 hours!I will definitely be back!!

Mikey

A very enjoyable course, atmosphere, and staff! I'm looking forward to playing Prestwick in the near future. It was fun playing a course that was very well maintained, with outstanding greens, and an overall happy environment.

James

Very fun and challenging course-the starter talked me into moving up a set of tees which was a great idea as I really enjoyed my round. the course was in great shape-fast greens

Course in great shape. Greens are really fast...good to know. More challenging because of that. Keep that in mind when the flag is on the back of the greens...you won't stay....

Played Prestwick on Day 1 of the 2016 Myrtle Beach World Am. I have played Prestwick a number of times and it always is a pleasure to play. For a Dye course (Pete and PB) it is definitely playable. The greens were absolutely perfect and for summertime in MB were not slow. They putted true and rolled well. The fairways were in very good shape and most all of the tee boxes were in very good shape. Really no complaints about the course. The staff there is very friendly. Always enjoyable golf at Prestwick.

Steve (Swansea, MA)

09/10/2016

A very demanding course. Great shape. The greens the best I've encountered down here. The course can humble you. Right when you think your playing some pretty good golf it says stop you're not THAT good.

Tobin

06/13/2016

Good layout, but very demanding. Greens were thin but true. Probably too difficult for the average player, even from the forward tees. Staff was very good and helpful.

Jim (Long Grove, IL)

06/11/2016

Awesome course.

Craig

Maintenance budget must have been cut. Very disappointed. Greens were in horrible shape and very slow. Had played before and was always very pleased.

Pat H

02/29/2016

Golf course itself was in good but not great condition. Greens were nice and fast even though spraypainted. Tee boxes were in ok shape and fairways were in good shape. Still one of the better layouts we played and at the end of the day the greens, tee boxes and fairways were consistent. Staff great as well as very friendly.

Mike (Oneida,NY)

01/29/2016

Enjoy the golf course. Not a fan of the painted greens, don't seem to roll true. Also, almost every cup is crowned. We had 3 foursomes and everybody experienced putts rolling off to right or left if they reached the cup slowly. They should use a board with a hole in it to cut the cups to prevent crowning. Overall nice course though.

Timothy

01/06/2016

Prestwick is one of the best in Myrtle. The greens are painted up a bit but very playable. It's one of my favorites. We played after a few days of rain but only 5 holes were cart restricted because it drains very well. The staff was very friendly which helps makes the day pleasant. Some easy holes and some you really need to pay attention. We will be return soon for another round.

Michael (Houston, TX)

10/22/2015

Course was in great shape. Greens are very challenging and good shots are certainly rewarded. Would recommend this for golfers of all levels.

John

07/06/2015

Great track, super condition. Greens had been aerated a couple of weeks ago, but recovered nicely and ran fast. The green spray coloring wasn't aesthetically pleasing but frankly didn't affect the experience. Pete Dye is known for his difficult layouts but I didn't think this was as tough as I was led to believe. Facility was very nice as well. Definitely country club caliber. I will return.

Allan

07/02/2015

A gem. A mix of straightforward and challenging. Greens were excellent. #2, #9, #17 and #18 were a blast to play. The rest of the course didn't let up either. I would definitely come back and play again. Pete Dye's railroad ties are in full force. Memorable.

William (Jefferson, OH)

06/18/2015

We showed up a half an hour early and they made us wait for our tee time even though there wasn't anyone in front of us. Other than that, the course was in great condition.

Ron

05/26/2015

Mid handicappers from the UK. What a fantastic course in great condition. The layout is very challenging with some great par 3's and impressive 9th and 18th finishing holes around the lake. I could not fault anything about the course, staff or facilities. In an area that has an abundance of great courses I would not hesitate in recommending this course.

Alan (The Woodlands, TX)

05/13/2015

Excellent course in fantastic conditions despite the rain. Tees had been spiked and sanded so hard to rate.

Chuck (Orlando, FL)

05/09/2015

Paired up with locals. This was very helpful in avoiding hidden trouble Mr. Dye is known for.

Carolyn (Toledo, OH)

03/22/2015

Contour tough to putt, would have been better except for sand and rough grass on greens. Pretty course when the grass comes in.

Timothy

03/03/2015

We played this course in early January and the greens were painted and fast but nothing like yesterday. I'm not sure if they rolled them or what they did but they are almost unplayable because they are so firm and fast. Three times my putts rolled off the green because of the speed on downhill putts. After the rains, cart path only, you couldn't run a chip on because the area around the greens were wet and soft and if you chip on, the ball rolls forever. Really difficult to play. The course itself is a favorite of mine with a great layout and test of golf. The staff is excellent and friendly for a semi-private facility. I will return but not this year.

No problems here, a very good course in all aspects. Don't go long right on the shot to #15 green as it is a steep slope and difficult to chip back up to.

M/M John (Wasaga, ON)

11/16/2014

Very good.

Michael (Revere, MA)

11/15/2014

No complaints. However, wish we had known about difficulty of course. Would have played green tees instead of white tees. In fact, we switched after to green after first nine. Staff was first rate.

Don (Chambersburg, PA)

Tough course for mid to high handicapper. 15 - 20 mph wind gusts made things a little more tougher. Would like to play there again on calmer day.

Robert (Cleveland, OH)

Mike (Broomfield, CO)

10/03/2014

A great course layout and nice greens. Unfortunately because of all the rain in the area over previous days we were relegated to cart path only and all of the waste bunkers were virtually unplayable, but that still did not detract from the overall appeal of the course since the fairways and greens played just fine. The starter at #10 was very pleasant and you could tell he was genuinely enthusiastic about the golf course...not just a guy standing there going over his routine. Unfortunately 1 of the 2 bag attendants was just the opposite. He was only interested in helping the members that were coming in and acted very disinterested in assisting our group as a whole. The woman working the grill was very nice and got stuff out to our group very quickly as we came in.

Scott (Brooklyn, NY)

06/02/2014

One thing I didn't like about Prestwick was having the side bucket of sand and scoop on the side of the cart. Either was time consuming to go back to cart when one of the player's ball required walking or was messy to keep bringing full scoop to ball to play ready golf.

Jason (Whitby, ON)

Tim (Chatham, VA)

Tough course, with undulating greens that made putting difficult. A number of flag positions were in very difficult positions. Starters was very patient with us and treated us better than we deserved. Was behind slow groups, who caused us to play a 5 hour plus round. Nice course, but group did not say they wanted to come back.

Timothy

01/23/2014

We played 1/17/14 and had a long frost delay but that's what this winter is all about. The course was in good shape but the painted greens were a little difficult. The paint can hide some of the bald area so the pace is very hard to figure. Overall it was a great day.

Stephen (Lewes, DE)

11/12/2013

Much too difficult a course for even the better-than-average player. Greens were entirely too difficult...like putting on linoleum and pin placement was unreasonably difficult. Even if you were on in regulation, 3 and 4 putts were commonplace. The staff, however, was extremely friendly and helpful.

Michael (Douglasville, GA)

11/05/2013

Outstanding layout especially on the back nine with the holes around the marsh. Course in excellent condition. The pace pf play was good (but not great, they were busy).

Jim H

11/05/2013

One of nicest courses in Myrtle great closing holes on both sides, impeccable green! Great Staff, Jay Smith has been more than accommodating answering many emails and providing advice on local courses with similar standards. Playable yet fantastic holes!!

Terry and Pam (Greencastle, PA)

10/24/2013

Course was excellent as usual, cart attendants were very helpful, as a large group with 30% women we tend to play a bit slower, we were told twice about the back up we were causing. Most of the people on the course was our group. We were told once that we were a hole behind, the group in front of us was on the green, and we were teeing off. That hole was a par 5 so we were at most 2 shots behind. I agree we were behind but no open holes in front of us. We still love the course and will be back.

A very nice layout and challenge. Great shape. Two of us were able to play though a foursome in front of us on the second hole and played in 3 hours without rushing. Only bad experience was the attendant at the end of the round. We were unloading our clubs and he jumps in our cart and rudely admonishes us for not parking in the right spot. Otherwise a good second experience.

Randy (Olathe, KS)

09/13/2013

It had been since 2007 since we had played Preswick and had forgotten what a fun course it is. The layout is challenging but fair and the undulation changes in the fairways and bunker complexes are unique. They were holding their member-guest tournament so they had the course in great condition and they told us the greens were running a 14. They were fast and hard to hold, but fun. It is a course that everyone should play at least once.

Phillip (Williamston, NC)

09/02/2013

Should not play here unless your are 10 handicap or less, course is too difficult.

Dennis (Boaz, KY)

07/29/2013

Everything was in great condition and everyone was friendly and helpful. Recommend getting a yardage card so you can more easily see location of bunkers and hazards. Some bunkers and waste areas are difficult to get out of (physically).

Lawrence (Rensselear, NY)

03/25/2013

Very disappointing. Have played in past years at same time of year and course always in great conditions. This year greens were bare and only treated with something to make them green. Like hitting onto asphalt and impossible to hold shots on greens. Fairways also very patchy with brown spots everywhere. To pay $110 for round here was outrageous. Staff also not very accommodating.

Chris

03/25/2013

Just played the course last week and where do I start?The course had a freeze delay which delayed our tee time by 20-25minutes which was ok however the starter failed to tell us we needed to be done with back 9 by 12:20 as they had now loaded up afternoon tee times.We finished on time but were told to go to the tee.I had not eaten or gone to the bathroom.I did get a boxed lunch and go to bathroom however upon getting to the tee there were 4 foursomes waiting for us I did not tee off but choose to eat along with my partner while my playing partners played the hole out.This did help us as we gained a good time gap between us and the groups behind us BUT I didnt play that first hole.The other BIG issue was the greens or lack of greens they were painted sand.I played here 2 years ago and loved the course after this time not sure if I will come back.

Timothy

02/12/2013

Prestwick is always on the list to play. We played on 2/9/13 and had a great time. The greens have been painted but they still putt true. They have a solid sand base which helps to check up coming into the greens. Fairways were okay and tees were good. I will look forward to playing again if I get a chance. They have a number of tees to choose from so pick the right one according to the scorecard and you'll find the course a fair test of golf. The staff was excellent and got us out a little early because the course was not full. Thanks.

Very difficult course...typical Pete Dye...greens were hard as a rock and wouldn't hold shots..consequently a good approach shot ended in swale area...marshalls treated you like herding cattle...kept badgering to pick up play but we waited on every shot for entire 18 holes.

Randy (Alexandria, VA)

11/10/2012

Greens were new and still hard, not holding shots. Pin placement on hole number 4 was absurd and unfair. It was placed on the very top of a mound and several well struck putts resulted in 4 putts.

Don (San Antonio, TX)

11/09/2012

Beautiful course.

Art (Wilmington, DE)

11/06/2012

This Pete and PB Dye design has a Country club atmosphere, with a mix of wide and narrow fairways. The primary challenge is around the small to medium sized greens, surrounded by pot bunkers, waste areas, mounds, chipping areas and railroad ties. It has a links flavor with trees. Pete and PB Dye did not pull out all their weapons here, as a few holes don't even look like Dye holes, but overall it is still challenging. Holes 9 and 18 play around a big lake, heading into the clubhouse. The conditions were good. The new in 2012 tifeagle greens were excellent, firm, smooth and very fast. Most if not all holes have new larger tees. Many bunkers were rebuilt with new sand.

Scott (Davenport, IA)

Security to get into the course was cold when going through the gate. Same has to be said for the pro shop attendant. Great starter but again we had the first tee time of the day only to find that when you come around in 1 1/2 hr front nine and you're told you have to wait due to starting the seniors off the back. The just over 3 hour round turned into 4 1/2 hours. Just frustrating when you book the first tee time and end up waiting on the back.

Played just after their re-opening. New greens were excellent and rolled great. Changes they made on 2, 4, 5, and 17 were great. Still rough around the edges with weeds still present sporadically about. Overall it it was in great shape and played like the bear it's been known to be. Changes to the main level of the clubhouse were impressive as well.

Paul (Bybee, TN)

05/17/2012

Very good.

Jeff (Woodbridge, VA)

05/16/2012

Excellent experience.

Shawn (Knoxville, TN)

05/12/2012

Very good.

Robert (Getzville, NY)

05/11/2012

Beautiful course but may be too much of a challenge for the average golfer. Typical Pete Dye course in that it places high emphasis on straightness, especially off the tee. Not very forgiving and too many side hill lie situations - too many hills, especially back nine. Would not choose to play there unless I am at top of my game or I decide that I like to score at least 10-15 strokes higher than usual. Very humbling to say the least, even if the overall experience is still good. One of the toughest I've ever played.

William (Philadelphia, PA)

05/02/2012

Excellent.

Dave (Concord, OH)

05/02/2012

Very good.

Barry (Linesville, PA)

05/02/2012

Excellent.

Chris (Stratham, NH)

05/01/2012

Great course and layout, love 9 and 18, tough into the wind.

Cong (Markham, ON)

05/01/2012

This is my favorite course during this trip. The course design was unique and some holes are spectacular. I am wondering why a course like that would not add a few things to make playing experience even better such as GPS, cooler, ball and club cleaner, free range balls ... I guess they want to keep the cost down to make it more affordable to play. I really enjoyed my experience there especially with the starter with his cool sense of humor.

James (Munster, IN)

04/24/2012

Very good experience.

Bob (Ponte Vedra Beach, FL)

04/24/2012

We had a great experience here. Jay treated us very well, the course was in great shape and pace of play was kept on track for a 4:25 round. We will play here again.

Joseph (Sayville, N.Y.)

04/23/2012

Great experience.

Doug (Kingsville, Md.)

04/19/2012

Had a good experience.

Christine (Endicott, N.Y.)

03/11/2012

Interesting course. Played this the 2nd out of 4 days of golf. Narrow fairways, lots of waste bunkers. Some greens had a broccoli appearance. Definitely the most complex course that kept us challenged all day ... but in a good way! Will come back.

Paul

03/09/2012

I must have played a different Prestwick. Fast play 3 hours and 20 minutes. Best box lunch on the beach. Course was in great condition and it has two of the best finishing holes on the beach.

Mary (Strathroy, Ontario)

03/01/2012

Good day.

Paul (Pickering, Ontario)

02/25/2012

Like being a member at a private course ... great experience and course.

Terry

02/12/2012

First time our foursome played Prestwick. Central location, outside staff excellent, pro shop staff a little bland. Excellent variety of holes and shots required. Play the correct tees that suits your handicap. Based on the choppers in front of us they should have played the ladies tees! Prestwick is changing their greens come June to TifDwarf bermuda. Current greens are slow and grainy, tees and fairways good for the time of year (2/8/12). I would go back to Prestwick any time, especially with better greens in the future! Free beer when done, that's a first for me in Myrtle. Go play Prestwick!

Jimmy (Iron Station, N.C.)

01/19/2012

Would not go back.

Brian (Wilmington, Del.)

01/17/2012

Clubhouse staff a little snotty. It had rained slightly but carts were out 90 degrees. Then suddenly on the 5th hole they decided cart path only even though no additional rain and course was still driveable.

Timothy

01/06/2012

This a very good course and in very good condition for January. The greens are cut a little high but are still in great shape.

Paul

12/06/2011

After a weekend and 5 rounds in Myrtle, our last round at Prestwick really made it seem underrated as a course. Each one of us really enjoyed the golf course, and while there were some spots where the conditioning was so-so, the staff was great, and we had the course to ourselves. Plus the 24-hour advance rate gave a break on the price. We waited to set up our Sunday round, and then we were thrilled when it was here. A great end to the trip.

Gary (Simpsonville, S.C.)

12/06/2011

Nice design. My group had players in their 60's, 70's and 80's. We played white, silver and a combo of silver and red for the 80's players. This was based on published yardage. Having experienced it, I would have moved the entire group one set of tees forward to maximize our playing enjoyment.

B Bush

12/05/2011

Fun course to play this time of year. Played in wet conditions from rain the day before. Casual water in fairways. Would like to play when greens are a little faster. They were fun. Condition of course was still in great shape. Would play again.

Kevin (Westfield, N.J.)

11/25/2011

Very good.

John (Thorold, Ontario)

11/23/2011

Excellant course, will play again.

Phil (Kingston, Ontario)

11/23/2011

Very pleasant surprise, nice layout, well worth the money.

Richard (Mercier, Quebec)

11/17/2011

Started on the back nine that is much more spectacular than the front nine. Next time I would like to start on the front nine.

Anthony (Laval, Quebec)

11/16/2011

Very good.

Chip (Powell, Ohio)

11/12/2011

Good Dye Course; variety of holes.

Kevin (Gambrills, Md.)

11/10/2011

I wish I would have known the greens were overseeded before I booked my golf trip.

Claude (Quebec City, Quebec)

11/09/2011

Our 2nd best out of 10 played in Myrtle Beach.

John (Clinton, Mass.)

11/07/2011

Not in good shape; transitioning seasons.

Edgar

11/05/2011

Loved the course! Will come back again. Make sure you play the correct tees. Scenic layout. Played on 11/1/11 and greens were coming back nicely. Quick. Fairways were excellent.

Drew (Broadview Heights, Ohio)

11/03/2011

Played early morning on 10/28/11. We were putting our shoes on and there were explosions going off. Even the bag person didn't know what it was. He drove off in a cart and came back and said it was mole control? No one knew about this? They had also done top dressing to the greens and the sand was soaking wet from the dew. It made it very unpleasant.

Bob (Rochester, Minn.)

11/02/2011

Unquestionably the toughest course we played, but still fun. Starter's help on tees to play was greatly appreciated. Did have an issue with one group, that thought the ranger was very rude in telling them to move along. Seemed it could have been handled better. Overall rating is great except for that one issue.

Jack (Georgetown, Mass.)

11/01/2011

All the staff was very accommodating as we were running late because some people in my group got stuck in traffic behind a road race.

Rene (Pinttenra, Quebec)

10/29/2011

We will come back.

Ray and Sue (Campbell Hall, N.Y.)

10/20/2011

Back nine very challenging.

Paul (Grand Falls, Neb.)

10/19/2011

Very challenging course. Found the atmosphere cold. Would not return immediately.

William (Fitchburg, Mass.)

10/18/2011

Very good.

Kent (Champaign, Ill.)

10/15/2011

Fun course to play!

Joe (Punta Gorda, Fla.)

10/12/2011

Excellent condition.

Richard (Bridgewater, N.J.)

10/04/2011

First time we played here. The greens rolled true, layout was fun. We were welcomed as a group.

Brad (Appleton, Wis.)

09/30/2011

Greens were slow.

Paul (Austin, Tex.)

09/29/2011

Green areas were too tricked up - rough way too deep around green. Greens also way too slow.

Bill (East Brunswick, N.J.)

09/27/2011

Great golf experience.

William (Canonsburg, Penn.)

09/25/2011

Grill personnel were very unattentive. When we said after the 18 that we have lunch tickets, it changed the waitress' whole attitude and she did not wait on us but we had to ask the bar person to give us the box lunches which were poor in quality. Cart-path-only was a detriment when using common sense (the course) could have been available to go 90 degrees. Made for a long 18.

Allen (Orange, Calif.)

09/24/2011

Overall, good experience. Golf course was in good shape.

Terry (Mechanicsburg, Penn.)

09/24/2011

Nice time.

Mark

09/20/2011

We had a great time at Prestwick in early September, 2011. We were the first off as a twosome, and the only person we saw on the course for the front nine was the greenskeeper that was cutting and moving the hole location. The greens were impeccable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And it was clear that the course was slow when they gave us a free beer ticket to use in the grill after our round. Nice touch, and gladly accepted. The one complaint that I would have is the 18th hole – it doesn’t do the course justice and it’s a weak finishing hole. All in all, I would highly recommend the course.

Adam (Myrtle Beach, S.C.)

09/19/2011

Nice.

Kevin & Sue (Morrisville, N.C.)

09/15/2011

This is a very unique course. I didn't like the lightning-fast greens.

Jane (Plainfield, Ill.)

09/09/2011

Very challenging.

George

09/07/2011

Tough track, fast greens.

David (Ellicott City, Md.)

08/08/2011

Excellent.

Mike (Baldwin, N.Y.)

07/16/2011

Nice course, greens had been sanded so putting was a bit off.

Katie (Groveport, Ohio)

06/27/2011

The entire experience at this course was great! We were greeted by helpful and happy staff members. The course was in wonderful shape and my entire group would like to play this course again.

Scott (Cumming, Ga.)

06/27/2011

Loved the layout. Condition not good at that time.

Robert (Montreal, Quebec)

06/03/2011

Fair course.

Edward

05/26/2011

One of my favorites in the MB area. Country club feel makes it super nice post round, and the course itself is a beast.

David (Arlington, Va.)

05/22/2011

1st time I've ever played there (5/21). This is one of the hardest golf courses on the beach. You must have your A game to score well, but you can have any type of game to enjoy it. The fairways are forgiving but the greens are small. I had heard that the greens had been rolling slow, but they are not ... there rolling just as fast as any other bermuda green in MB (about a 10 on the stimpmeter). Anyone that wants the challenge there game must bring it to Prestwick without a doubt.

David

05/21/2011

Outstanding course; not a course for the medium to high handicap.

Mark (Cary, N.C.)

05/20/2011

Greens in nice shape but slow. Could stand to be cut.

Donald (Dublin, Ohio)

05/17/2011

Country club atmosphere. Carts in fairways, good pace of play. Greens faster than Arcadian but still on the slow side. Yard markers and sprinkler heads marked. Took my own towel. Colored pin flags to give you the hole location. Excellent course layout and design.

Walter (Laval, Quebec)

05/17/2011

We enjoyed this course and the conditions were great.

Ed (Tiltonsville, Ohio)

05/13/2011

Cross me off this list not worth the price.

Michael (Phoenixville, Penn.)

05/10/2011

This course is the best-kept secret of the Grand Strand.

Russ (Huntersville, N.C.)

05/07/2011

Nice course.

Tom (Glasgow, U.K.)

05/07/2011

The 9th and 18th towards the large clubhouse are always appealing.

Ted (Depew, N.Y.)

04/22/2011

One of my favorites. Great course and staff.

Shawn (Weirton, W. Va.)

04/19/2011

This is the best golf course I have played in Myrtle Beach! The service and staff were excellent and the course was fantastic! Even with rain, I enjoyed my day at Prestwick!

Bill (Midlothian, Va.)

04/18/2011

Nice course.

Susan (Jamaica Plain, Mass.)

04/16/2011

The course is fabulous - would be nice to have cart GPS.

D.J. (Matawan, N.J.)

04/15/2011

Our worst experience in 13 years. The guys at the bag drop are miserable. The ranger on the front nine is the most obnoxious and rude person we've come across on a golf course. Our whole group is talking about going to Florida for our next trip. We wait all year to go on vacation and it seems some people at the courses are out to break chops. We'll never play or recommend Prestwick to anyone. We're wondering if Myrtle Beach has lost its Southern Hospitality.

Mark (Rocklin, Calif.)

04/13/2011

Loved this Pete Dye course, very challenging, but great to play. Green were a little slow on this day.

Rich (Everett, Mass.)

04/08/2011

Found the club staffing very demeaning. Starter telling you to stay on white tees if your not good enough. Felt rushed, was pushed to speed up play with no one behind us. Over all a very unfriendly experience; will not be back. Too bad because the course is nice and very challenging.

Tommy (Hardy, Va.)

03/11/2011

Very challenging course ... would have loved to see it when it is peak condition! Has some long par-4's that make it difficult to play par golf here.

Bruce (Pipersville, Penn.)

03/06/2011

First time playing here. I will go back.

Mick (Dover, Del.)

03/04/2011

What a beautiful layout!! Even in February, this is a gorgeous course. We will have this as a must-play next year as well. A little wet in areas, but very fair.

Steve (Claremont, N.C.)

03/03/2011

Loved the course; greens were nice to putt on - rolled good.

Justin (Kernersville, N.C.)

02/09/2011

This course was also in great shape. Greens were a little bumpy but I'm sure that was because of all the rain they had soaked up in a two-day span. The course layout was one of the prettiest in Myrtle Beach.

Timothy (Upton, Mass.)

01/19/2011

Played on 1/18/11 and enjoyed it very much. The weather was a little difficult but the course was in very good shape. The staff was excellent, and we will return.

Ray (Covington, Ky.)

11/27/2010

Conditions were good for this time of year.

Joe (Oshawa, Ontario)

11/17/2010

Excellent experience.

Neil (Barry's Bay, Ontario)

11/16/2010

Enjoyable.

Glenn (Spartanburg, S.C.)

11/14/2010

This course was by far the best course we played the entire trip. Everything was superb. The course, the staff, the beverages. A great deal for the money! Highly recommended.

Jose (Darien, Ill.)

11/10/2010

Great course. Also one of my favorites.

Eric (Union County, Ohio)

10/11/2010

It was cart path only which made it difficult. It probably did not need to be cart path only.

Rich (Toms River, N.J.)

09/26/2010

Tough course! Watch out for hole #2. It is a Dye layout which speaks for itself. The shape of the some of the greens is a problem. They also need to upgrade the grill/bar area. Need more stuff in pro shop!

Sean (Ladson, S.C.)

09/23/2010

Nice course with a very good price! Will have to come back and play it again!

Coleen (Glenshaw, Penn.)

09/22/2010

Bag attendants not overly friendly, starter was very nice. Course in great condition, enjoyed the round even though score wasn't so great.

Glenn (Spartanburg, S.C.)

09/21/2010

Well worth the Moola to play this course ... good value.

Steven (Nottingham, Md.)

09/18/2010

Course was in great shape and love the 9th and 18th holes. Staff was very friendly and overall experience was exceptional.

Horace (Crestwood, Ky.)

09/13/2010

Very nice course and well maintained. Overall the nicest course we played.

Alex (Oakwood, Va.)

07/28/2010

The course was in great shape. It is the typical Dye design with huge mounds and tiny bunkers scattered around the greens. This was an enjoyable course that will definitely be on the return list.

Scott (Chantilly, Va.)

07/11/2010

Enjoyed the elevation changes and the finishing holes.

Mark (Fletcher, N.C.)

07/05/2010

I played Prestwick on the 4th of July 2010, and this was my 1st time at this course. I have to say that I was very impressed. The bermuda greens were faster than expected and in great shape. The fairways were also in great shape. The staff did a great job as well. This is a great course for the money. I'll be back on my next trip down.Thanks.

Jim (Lithia Springs, Ga.)

06/01/2010

Oh, the mounds! Great way (not to break) a hundred.

Will (Niagara On The Lake, Ontario)

05/11/2010

Challenging layout - nice layout.

Eric (Pierrefonds, Quebec)

05/09/2010

My favorite course.

Ray (Linthicum Heights, Md.)

05/08/2010

Course played a little long. We also encountered a group of 60 players, which made us play 18 holes in 5 hrs. 40 mins. The marshalls apologized numerous times and when we finished we stopped in the pro shop. Even though we played our round, they gave us a rain check to be used at a later date.

David (Fairless Hills, Penn.)

05/08/2010

Very enjoyable course, we've played it before and probably will again sometime.

Ben (Rock Hill, S.C.)

05/07/2010

Nothing remarkable about this course.

John (Titusville, N.J.)

05/04/2010

Great use of the large lake behind the clubhouse, makes 9 and 18 very challenging. Anything not in the fairway is trouble!

Dennis (Sea Girt, N.J.)

04/29/2010

Nice condition! Good experience.

Joe (Middletown, N.J.)

04/29/2010

Could have been in better shape.

Donald (Gibsonia, Penn.)

04/28/2010

Wow. What a visual treat, especially in late April with the azaleas in bloom. Great challenges, so bring your A game, as you will need it.

Anthony (Belford, N.J.)

04/27/2010

Simply the BEST!

Patrick (Ashburn, Va.)

04/23/2010

Course was decent ... but not nearly as nice as the staff thought it was. Acted like they were doing us a favor by letting us play there. Tried to rush us around when there were only 15 cars in the parking lot. Played 36 holes there, had a break in between 18's of an hour, but was told that was not long enough to grab any food besides a hot dog. Course gets a B ... Staff gets an F. We won't ever go back.

Larry (Jewett City, Conn.)

04/23/2010

Friendly, nice course.

Jim (Dover, Del.)

04/18/2010

Great course, always in good condition; a pleasure to play.

Jack (Marlton, N.J.)

04/17/2010

The golf course was in good shape; however, the Bermuda greens were a little slow.

David (Montgomery, Tex.)

04/16/2010

First 8 holes fairly plain, then it gets exciting and difficult from 9 to 18. Not crazy about PB Dye designs in general. Too many very punitive features that don't make the course any better, or more fair, just weirder. Would like to see what the course grass quality would be like after some better growing conditions.

Larry (Sault Ste Marie, Ontario)

04/03/2010

My most favorite course in my last three vacations.

Lazaros (Toronto, Ontario)

04/01/2010

Good course.

Rick (Hartford, Wis.)

03/27/2010

Overall good experience.

Paul (Lehighton, Penn.)

03/26/2010

Does the course play longer than the distance shows?

Brendan (Sterling, Va.)

03/24/2010

Tough course, greens were almost unputtable. Very bumpy.

Ryan (Gainesville, Va.)

03/19/2010

Very welcoming for a semi-private club. Tough layout had a few patchy greens but in overall good shape.

Tom (Garland, Tex.)

03/19/2010

course was in bad shape... would like to know condtion of course prior to booking but that is hard to do.. you have had bad weather this year although the weather was good for our visit

Wayne

01/29/2010

Another really nice clubhouse.

Michael (Winston-Salem, N.C.)

01/26/2010

Enjoyed the course. They had improved the tees and greens. Love the 9th and 18th holes. Bothe are a good test of your golfing ability.

Billy

12/05/2009

Linda (McDonald, Penn.)

11/18/2009

We only played 9 holes, due to rain. Received a rain check for our next visit.

Willard (Stafford, Va.)

11/16/2009

The course layout is very nice, but the conditions at the time of play were less than ideal. Rain saturated the course and the course played longer and harder than expected.

Bill

11/04/2009

Fine.

Richard

10/22/2009

Prestwick was great and the staff was friendly and the course was in good shape.

Laird (Canton, Conn.)

10/13/2009

The greens were way too slow. They needed to be rolled and cut. They played about half the speed of Caledonia or Tigers Eye. Nice layout. Tee Boxes were a little beat up.

Rob (Laurel, Md.)

09/30/2009

Great golf course. Challenging but fair. Greens were in good shape but it would have been nice if they were faster.

Coleen (Glenshaw, Penn.)

09/23/2009

This is the first time we played Prestwick and we liked the course very much, will play it again for sure. Enjoyed the perk of a free beer (given to us by the starter) at the bar after the round.

James (Bennettsville, S.C.)

09/18/2009

Excellent course.

Dyrck (Lumberton, N.C.)

09/03/2009

Greens could be quicker.

Mark (Hopatcong, N.J.)

08/31/2009

One of the best courses on the strand- Challenging and tough, but beautiful: After reading previous reviews kind of apprehensive about playing, but early problems with greens are fixed and they are rolling great. Can't waitto play again in January- Restaurant has greatfood and service- Overall great experience. Don't usually write reviews, but this one neededto be written-

Phil (Bridgewater, Mass.)

08/02/2009

Loved it.

Charles (Greenwood, S.C.)

06/29/2009

I have been playing golf for 50 years; played all over the USA and have never experienced greens as bad as these. They have totally lost the greens. This course WAS a great layout, but, I'm guessing, the economy is preventing them from keeping up the required maintenance.

Al (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

05/23/2009

Staff was extremely apologetic & offered free greens fees, but the greens were still unplayable.

Scott

05/04/2009

Good round for first time out this year. Pretty nice course.

Paul

04/27/2009

very interesting course, loved it

Greg

04/10/2009

The layout is great. The course was in poor condition and no way justified fees of $92.00

Lawrence

03/13/2009

Worst conditions of the four courses we played. Some greens were atrocious. I played here numerous times in the winter and the conditions were better then. They should be embarrassed.

John

03/12/2009

Pro Shop was aloof and short. Maybe having a bad morning. Back nine was a much different layout than the front. Felt it was a little disjointed. Overall, still a fine track.

James

02/23/2009

excellent
