Blackmoor Golf Club
Located along the banks of Prince Creek, Blackmoor Golf Club is Gary Player's only signature golf course on the Grand Strand and reflects his remarkable understanding and respect for the game. Known for his ability to meet international standards, Mr. Player traveled 12 million miles to design and build Blackmoor on the historic Longwood Plantation, an antebellum rice plantation located in Murrells Inlet, SC. The undulating 18-hole championship course takes advantage of the natural terrain and vistas inclusive of moss-laden oaks and abundant wildlife to create a rewarding experience that truly revitalizations the senses.
Blackmoor has been rated a top 100 Woman-Friendly Golf Course by Golf for Women Magazine, awarded 4 stars by Golf Digest’s “Places to Play,” and was voted the Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year in 2001. Blackmoor offers an exceptional practice facility with a large putting green, sand bunker, and generous driving range tee to warm up before hitting the course. The pro shop carries an extensive line of quality merchandise, equipment and accessories, and its grill room serves salads and sandwiches made fresh daily with a wide selection of beverages. From the moment you arrive, the staff is dedicated to assist you in any way and provide for the best golf experience possible.

This is our favorite course in the area. We play it every year. Rain led to cart path only conditions, but overall good experience.

RobertDate Played: 10/18/2019
Unfortunately didn't have my driver w me that day but decided to play the whites to make up the loss of yardage...worked out well. Course is fair yet challenging. Greens were still lil quick even though healing from last months aeration. Definitely coming back.

JamesDate Played: 08/18/2018
Course is not long, but you must place your ball in the right place in the fairways to score. I played with a golfer that knew the course well and that helped significantly.
TonyDate Played: 07/16/2018
I love playing this course. I'm not a long hitter and this course let's me consider different strategy's off the tee, mainly because a lot of the holes are dog legs. The course was in very good condition and the greens were fast and true. The staff has always been friendly and I have never had a bad experience here. I highly recommend it.
EarlDate Played: 06/24/2018

MarkDate Played: 02/27/2018
Not being an accomplished golfer, I appreciated the "fairness" of the course. I could enjoy my round without needing a ton of "local" knowledge. The Starter, course advisor, and club attendant were great. Also the young lady on the beverage cart was great too.
AlDate Played: 02/25/2018
Enjoyed course layout, challenging, you need to think twice about how to play each shot. Course was in great condition.
MichaelDate Played: 02/23/2018
Course was in very nice shape. People are always friendly. Pace of play was extremely slow
TimothyDate Played: 02/07/2018
We enjoyed Blackmoor. The greens were in good shape, in fact the course was in good shape for the time of the year, early February. It was gonna for both the men in the group and the woman. She had a reasonable advantage!
StacyDate Played: 11/25/2017
Played with my regular foursome in a Veteran's tournament at Blackmoor - conditions were terrific. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were well maintained. Plenty of doglegs. If you are playing here, take a look at the aerials to determine strategy.
JDDate Played: 11/13/2017
Played 11/13/2017 - The customer service was excellent, from the Golf Cart Staff, Course Advisors/Starter to the Beverage Cart Staff, all were upbeat and helpful. Overall the course was in great shape. The greens were clean and quick, the sand traps swept and level, and the tee boxes, fairways and rough, all in neat condition. Overall, an enjoyable day, all due to an exception course and the thoughtful staff. Thanks Trent, our group had a great experience.
DaveDate Played: 10/20/2017
We enjoyed our first time at Blackmoor. My threesome has been playing courses across the grand strand for 12 years, and we found Blackmoor to be a good course with a couple of notable holes among a bunch of others that are like the rest of the area. The conditioning was good, but the staff were the real value: great people who wanted us to have a great time. When you compare that with the attractive fees, we found Blackmoor a very good value.
TimothyDate Played: 10/17/2017
The greens are the best they have ever been. Course was a little wet because of heavy rain the day before but still playable. Nice staff who helped us get out early and quick turn on the back nine.
BryanDate Played: 03/03/2017
Thoroughly enjoyable day. From the moment we arrived at the bag drop we were made to feel welcome. The Pro shop, Grill and Starter took time out to talk to us and give us some background to the course and the lay out. A very tricky tight course and you had to make sure you were in the right position at the dog leg to get to the green. If I had one complaint it would be the lack of a 2nd ladies tee. My wife gave me a thorough beating off those forward tees and I ended up cooking the evening meal.
TimothyDate Played: 02/17/2017
Course is in the best shape it has been in over the last 10 years. Tees were good and greens are a little slow but very consistent. The staff was great and helpful. The only downside was the lack of water coolers on the back nine. Water can be helpful on hot days.
PaulDate Played: 02/12/2017
The course advisors were quite entertaining!
MarkDate Played: 12/24/2016
Nice layout, great condition and friendly staff. Will always make this a stop when I come to this part of Myrtle Beach.
BeausoleillouiseDate Played: 12/08/2016

Had played it years ago. Considering the hurricane a few weeks ago it was in very good condition
RobertDate Played: 11/01/2016
Several dog legs, several unique holes with greens hidden or even a split fairway. Greens were in great shape.
TedDate Played: 10/23/2016
Nice variety of holes. Some forced carries & a few water holes. Subtle breaks on the greens that makes them hard to read but rolled smooth. Staff was very nice.
NicholasDate Played: 10/19/2016
Once again, the superintendent got the course in playable shape after the hurricane. Some parts of holes under water due to flooding.
DerekDate Played: 10/19/2016
Great greens despite moisture from hurricane. Lots of doglegs. Staff was top-notch.
DenisDate Played: 10/16/2016
Surprising course. Ttime of play. 5:45 is simply too much. The Marshall did nothing to sanction the group In front of us.

Great course looking forward to playing it again.
CarolDate Played: 09/29/2016
Blackmoor is a great golf course. Today was our first time to play it and we were pleasantly surprised. Loved using the new golfboards. They really added to the experience. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to play again when we come back to Myrtle Beach next year.

DavidDate Played: 03/25/2016
Course was in great shape except for three or four greens that still haven't recovered from the heavy rains they experienced late last year. Enjoyed the course.
JohnDate Played: 03/22/2016
Received a rain check. The pro staff could not have been nicer.i will now play Blackmore every time I return to SC which is twice a year.
TomDate Played: 01/17/2016
The greens were nice the staff was very helpful fairways were in good shape.
JJDate Played: 12/27/2015
Played Blackmoor for the first time today and I would say it is a must play! Granted I would not play there after large amounts of rain but if dry the course has great character with each hole being its own. The staff was very friendly and asking if they could do anything to make your experience more enjoyable. Overall the price point is awesome and a great time.
JamesDate Played: 11/17/2015
The course was saturated with water and very close to unplayable. Grass in fairways was 3+ inches and balls plugged and difficult to locate. Three in our party of six after front nine and received rain-checks for nine holes each. Three of us played through 13 and quit due to playing conditions. Would LOVE to come back and play when conditions more favorable. Layout excellent.
KennethDate Played: 11/09/2015
Tee times too close together. Felt rushed and crowded. Also, fairway grass far too high. Can't find the ball after a nice tee shot in the middle of the fairway. Frustrating!
PennyDate Played: 10/17/2015
The course was really beautiful. But since it just got a lot of rain, it was wet and grass was thick so difficult to find your ball - even on really great shots so was very frustrating.
CharlesDate Played: 09/22/2015
The folks were great especially the starter, great guy made you feel at home. The course was in great shape, especially the greens. One par 4 was made into a par 3, not sure if permanent but I would state that on the web site.
KevinDate Played: 09/18/2015
Very friendly staff, course was in excellent condition. Road construction has one hole changed to temporary par 3.
PeterDate Played: 09/17/2015
I would like to have known that the rough had not been cut for several days as it was very frustrating when you could not find a golf ball even if it had gone off fairway by as much as a yard.
RobertDate Played: 09/10/2015
The staff was polite and efficient. The clubhouse is comparatively small but comfortable. Greens and fairways are exceptional. The grounds crew stopped what they were doing and pulled the mowers out of the fairways to let us go through, that is not something you see at all the MB courses. Of course we will be going back. Not sure why the bar slides turned red, either a bad design or lousy programming. They should be green
DonDate Played: 09/09/2015
The course and especially the greens are in fantastic shape. Excellent quality golf. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
MichaelDate Played: 08/25/2015
Greeted by friendly and helpful staff. Course was in great condition. The greens rolled fast and true and were still able to hold approach shots. The course is fair as the fairways are wide enough in most places to hold slightly errant shots. A very good golf experience I would recommend to all levels of players.
GaryDate Played: 08/11/2015
Blackmoor is always in great shape every year. They had the best greens we played all week and the friendliest and most welcoming staff. That's why we play here every year.
GeraldDate Played: 08/08/2015
Should have been told the course had been aerated recently and one hole had been changed along the main road. Fairways should have been cut, otherwise I enjoyed the layout very much.
SidDate Played: 07/29/2015
Blackmoor was a very good course in excellent shape w excellent staff in the pro shop.
WadeDate Played: 07/26/2015
The course was in good condition and we enjoyed it very much. We were confused by the cart guys. They loaded our clubs and we thought they would unload and clean the clubs. Our plans were to tip them at the end of the round but they didn't come to the cart so we unloaded ourselves. Sorry cart guys!!
JordanDate Played: 07/15/2015
Staff was friendly I just selected 2 golfers I would have like to have know that they were putting us with 2 other golfers I'm glad they did because they were very nice I would have just like to have known. Also they were cutting the tees and some of the fairways while we were playing it was okay because they would get out of our way but I still think they should have a couple of hours where the course is closed so they can get everything done.
ErvinDate Played: 06/25/2015
This course was the best experience of the week. It was so nice to play where you are appreciated. From the minute we got there until we left they made us feel special. The man taking water to golfers all over the course was a nice touch. Although one hole next to the road had to be changed to a par three it didn't make a difference. We will play this course whenever we come down. I cannot tell you how well we were treated. It was great.
JohnDate Played: 05/25/2015
Liked the playability of the course. The fairways were a bit tight.
PhillipDate Played: 05/21/2015
Reasonable course, got 37 Stableford points so fairly happy!
TimothyDate Played: 05/21/2015
Greens were spotty in a lot of places. intrusion of 707 into the course impacts experience in a negative way.
JamesDate Played: 05/15/2015
Unfortunately the course had been saturated with a huge storm. Layout was good.
SteveDate Played: 05/12/2015
Enjoy course layout very much. Greens were not in good shape this year.
TomDate Played: 05/06/2015
Course was in great shape. Great tee boxes and greens. No need for rangers in the middle of the fairway. Cart girl was great. Maybe a cooler on the side of the carts. Friendly staff.
BrianDate Played: 05/04/2015
Liked the course layout. Greens were in poor condition. Speed of play was slow with no intervention. Will probably play again.
JoshuaDate Played: 05/01/2015
Very challenging course, they had us start on the back which is much tougher than the front. Greens weren't in the best shape yet, but that will change soon I'm sure. Lots of blind 2nd shots and dogleg rights, if you're a draw player you may want to Look elsewhere. Overall pretty good, bring a decent game with you that day.
TimDate Played: 04/27/2015
Me and my friends play Blackmoor weekly and it is by far the best at the beach. The reason starts with the staff, just as friendly as they come. Paul the golf pro is simply the easiest to work with and always there to lend a helping hand. His leadership around the pro shop and bag drop spills over to the rest of the staff. The course is in excellent shape, fairways nice and plush and greens are just as nice. Lots of courses could take notes on how this course is managed. Simply the best.
RobertDate Played: 04/26/2015
Blackmoor was the first course that allowed carts on fairways this week. There was lots of rain the days prior. Tees and fairways were in good shape. Two greens were a little sparse. The other greens ran true. Lots of 90 degree holes made you think of where to put the ball for the next shot. I enjoyed the round for the price.
FrankDate Played: 04/20/2015
Kind of a quirky layout, but not bad to play. However, this year - their greens were not in good shape, in fact about 5 of them were very bad due to some black fungus or winter rot. That being said, pro shop staff was courteous, grill lady allowed us to watch the final round of the Masters. But overall, our group of 20 said not to schedule this place again.
BarryDate Played: 04/09/2015

Too many holes with short doglegs requiring target tee shots making it difficult if not played before.

Some quirky holes and pin locations. Felt the course was very gimmicky.
BarryDate Played: 11/07/2014
Double tees so the back nine was absurdly slow. When we asked the ranger he said that this was typical and we should get over it. The course is broken up and tricked out. The greens were very bumpy. Not a keeper.

As a recent transplant to the area, I have played here many times. The fairways and greens are always in great shape. The staff are friendly and professional. Recent short notice request for lesson from head pro Paul fixed a chronic problem and had me ready for next day tournament.
GregDate Played: 10/28/2014
They really let this course go down hill .. it used to be great ... what a mess.
BruceDate Played: 10/28/2014
I really enjoy this course. Too bad they had to change the par four to a par three where the new highway is being built. Can they save this hole? This was a challenging par four for me and losing it changes the character of this nine.
RickDate Played: 10/28/2014
Very disappointed with marshall pushing us when we were not slowing down anyone. In fact on the 18th hole we waited almost 15 minutes before watching our friends behind us arrive at the 18th hole. The marshall was not friendly at all. Enjoyed the golf course, hopefully the marshall cheers up.

KennethDate Played: 10/09/2014
Fairways needed to be cut - 6th Hole was changed to a Par 3 - NO ONE told us of the change - greens were poor.
RobDate Played: 10/04/2014
This has always been another favorite. The fairway and greens seemed to be a little shaggy. I attribute this to the course not being able to mow sufficiently due to all the rain which is why have rated the fairways and greens lower than I normally wood. I think this is a great golf course though and will play again.
PeterDate Played: 10/03/2014
No drainage here. Had not mowed in days but not sure what they had been working on. Bunkers were not even raked and it had no rained for a couple of days. Workers were out in the woods picking up debris an not working on the course. Workers driving around on cart paths constantly during the round. Grill room staff very friendly, one starter as well. Found the pro shop staff and other on-course staff unhappy and unfriendly.
GaryDate Played: 10/01/2014
It was too wet in fairways ... but with the rain nothing you could do.
MaryDate Played: 09/25/2014
Very women friendly. They do start on front and back nine in morning and we had a 20 min wait in going from 18 to 1 (started on 10). Rough was quite long even right next to fairway. Lost several balls even when you knew about where they were.

Blackmoor is #1 on my list of favorite courses to play because it is very woman-friendly. The man who is charge of keeping the golf course in such good condition should be complimented. The staff is always so warm and friendly. Look forward to playing here every time when we come back down to the Myrtle Beach area.

It's really a golf course good for woman. rank 4 for me. Not realy different than our golf course.
JerryDate Played: 06/05/2014
I spent my gift certificate here. Very poor selection. Also, the course allowed 16 golfers to butt into the schedule claiming a reservation error. My reservation called for no changes after a certain point. This delayed the round another half hour, taking away from family time.
JohnDate Played: 06/05/2014
Nothing! great course and facility. would play again
JohnDate Played: 06/05/2014
Tough greens, but fair. the overhead monitor was not working so it made it a bit more difficult to judge distance.
DianeDate Played: 06/03/2014
The course itself was very good. We had one beginning and three intermediate golfers playing so we were playing a scramble format to keep a fast pace. We were playing behind players we had to wait for which was fine. However the group in back of us complained about the pace of our play and we were asked to let them play through. This would have been fine however the ranger kept watching us for many holes after and made the whole experience very uncomfortable and intimidating for the players in our foursome. I was about the say something to the ranger about his harassment of us when he left. I would say this experience took away from a day that COULD have been quite enjoyable. I would rate the hospitality of this course poor.

DanDate Played: 06/02/2014
We were in group with everything pre-arranged. For the most part, I enjoyed playing the course. My major complaint was with the green. While they were in good condition (color and grass filled) they had too much grain which made them much slower to putt than my home course, which was not enjoyable. First experience with Blackmoor
GregDate Played: 06/02/2014
Played once before and had to deal with small bugs the entire day. this year no bugs on insects to deal with. a few odd holes where first timer would have no idea where to hit the ball. Not one of my top courses in myrtle beach.

Too much elevation on the tee boxes for a person with bad knees. Some of the greens were crusted.

Great Course and Courteous Staff definitely on our places to play again in 2015.

Course was in very good shape for this time of year.
DonDate Played: 03/17/2014
We played on a day that promised rain but never did, there were very few other golfers on the course, great for us! Played senior tees and scored well. Just enough bunkers and water to add interest without undue difficulty. Definitely will play again. Great staff, very friendly and helpful.
BobDate Played: 02/28/2014
BillDate Played: 02/25/2014
Course was understandly wet. Its too bad one of the holes is now a par 3 because of the road construction. Greens were tough to read.
TimDate Played: 01/15/2014
A big shout out and thank you to Paul, in the club house. Paul took my phone inquiry about a lost range finder and graciously located same in short order, while I held the line. Having put my mind at rest, that it had been found, he then went further to forward the range finder back to me at home in Michigan! Thanks Tons Paul! Will be sure to see you on my next visit to Myrtle.

Blackmoor is one of my favorite courses. It is well maintained and well managed and the people are very friendly.
JoanDate Played: 12/11/2013
Eight ladies in my group played and we found it very women friendly. We had lunch before playing and the two women in the grill did everything to make it an enjoyable experience. The ranger on the course made us feel very welcome.
ToddDate Played: 12/06/2013
Staff were very friendly, course was in really good shape. Ladies in the lounge were also friendly and welcoming. Made for an enjoyable round. Not the newest establishment by any means, but warm and familiar. Great track and challenging golf course.

Course is an odd design, but we had fun. Staff was friendly, especially Paul at the bag drop. We may come back again because it was a pretty good deal.
BillDate Played: 11/26/2013
We will play it again!
BarryDate Played: 11/19/2013
Great course except for two oddly designed holes which were difficult to figure out where the hole was.
JamesDate Played: 11/12/2013
Cpo but did accomodate handicap requests. Course did not need cpo, was dry enough to lift the restriction.
BobDate Played: 11/12/2013
Blackmoor is a course that should be included in every golf trip! Great course.
CliffordDate Played: 11/12/2013
Finished our 18 holes @ 2.00pm and wanted to play another nine,two of our group went in to pro shop to see if we could,attendent who unloads clubs and return carts too,first said not enough time,we questioned him why.Proshop was going to put us out and attendant lied saying groups going off both nines,and informed me he's not waiting for us to finish when there is football on.while unloading clubs at our car attendent came and took cart without saying a word,I didn't realize my glasses still in the cart.Went to ask attendant about my glasses and he said he didn't see any glasses and walked away.
FrankDate Played: 11/12/2013
Course is always in good shape with very helpful and friendly staff. Course one of our favorites
SandeDate Played: 11/05/2013
Without a doubt my all time favorite Myrtle Beach course. The layout is wonderful, its always in beautiful shape and the group working at the bag drop are the most fun group of people. Jim Potter is hilarious and gets your day started off with a laugh! I always play this course when I'm in town!! Can't wait to come back in April to see everyone and play. Hoping to retire in this community when the time comes!

Not terribly memorable for good or bad reasons

Great course all round, absolutely no complaints.
BarbaraDate Played: 10/29/2013
Course had been over seeded and was awfully wet. otherwise a good experience.
MarkDate Played: 10/25/2013
A course with strategy in mind, having to work the ball both ways. Not so long that an older player(me)that has lost length but still maintains accuracy makes this course very enjoyable.
BillDate Played: 10/23/2013
Wet! A guy from our group left his clubs and the pro=shop called the hotel and kept the clubs in the pro shop. everything there. super pro shop

JoeDate Played: 10/03/2013
Some very interesting holes.
DanielDate Played: 10/03/2013
Tees and Fairways were fantastic. The greens were well manicured and the ball was running true. No hops or bumps, just beautiful. Not too fast.

Great day at Blackmoor ! Very nice course. Staff is extremely friendly. A must play for anyone coming to Myrtle Beach.
PaulDate Played: 09/26/2013
Course was very nice. I had to hit a couple of blind shots due to the many doglegs that we were not sure about the extent of the dog leg.
GeorgeDate Played: 09/26/2013
Course was OK but the staff was terrible. Pace was slow and no one made an effort to speed up slow groups. Proshop didn't have anything to say about it. Won't be back
DougDate Played: 09/23/2013
Matchup with other twosome was awkward, we were gold tee, one of them played black, the other white tee. I'd rather played with another twosome who were gold tee players. I can play white tees but my partner is a gold so I play those tees when with him.
JonDate Played: 09/23/2013
Very enjoyable golf course. From the cart guy who greeted us on our arrival, to the Pro Shop, Grill, Starter, everyone was so accommodating. The course was in great shape and we had a wonderful time at Blackmoor.

JosephDate Played: 09/10/2013
Enjoyable layout with good fun being had by all. Course in excellent condition and staff helpful.
DonDate Played: 09/09/2013
Love the layout. Each hole seemed different. Even though I scored better on the back nine (42) than the front (52) I liked the front nine better. Through the trees with lots of interesting dog logs and character.
IsraelDate Played: 09/09/2013
Course is great condition, better than anyone we played so far. Staff is very friendly. Really enjoyed our day at Blackmoor.

Very nice golf course. The staff was one of the friendliest that we have ever had on our trips to Myrtle Beach.
StephaneDate Played: 09/02/2013
Staff super friendly, really helped making the round even more enjoyable. Course was well maintained, some holes needed a bit of repairs, but nothing major. Overall everything was in great shape. Greens were really nice but pretty fast. Blackmoor is definitely worth every penny.
ErikDate Played: 08/22/2013
The only downsize was all the rain and how wet it was. Course was in great shape all things considered. Having to stay cart paths only made it a lot longer of a round. Once again that was the weather. Overall a great time.
JacksonDate Played: 08/16/2013
Very nice golf course. We had a wonderful day at Blackmoor. Looking forward to coming back to Blackmoor in April.
RickDate Played: 08/12/2013

Great golf course. Very enjoyable to play. Their entire staff is so friendly and accommodating. We will play Blackmoor every time we come to Myrtle Beach.
RobertDate Played: 08/05/2013
Course was challenging and used all my clubs. The course was in spectacular condition.
CarlDate Played: 08/02/2013
Course was in great shape. This is a fantastic course for any right-handed golfer who has a tendency to fade or slice the ball (as I do). Basically all of the doglegs were to the right, so many of my shots that I thought were lost were actually still in play. Who doesn't love a course that will let you get away with a few mistakes?
ChrisDate Played: 07/25/2013
Blackmoor is a great course. While not as picturesque as some of the other courses in the area, it provides a challenge and is in fantastic condition. The greens are fast and well-manicured, the fairways are smooth and the tees aren't beat up. I would recommend this course to anyone in the area.
MarianneDate Played: 07/18/2013
We played Blackmoor today and had the most wonderful golfing experience that we could want. Your golf course is in fantastic condition and your staff is so courteous and caring about the golfers. It was very hot and humid and the Ranger made it a point to stop every time he passed us to offer ice cold water to us all day. That type of compassion and concern for the golfers is the reason that we will return to Blackmoor in the Fall and as many times as we can thereafter. Thank you for being so wonderful to us. You don't see that very often.
GeorgeDate Played: 07/09/2013
Very nice golf course. From the time we arrived until we left every staff member at Blackmoor was great. We enjoyed playing Blackmoor because of the great course conditions and the wonderful staff. Keep up the great work !
RonDate Played: 07/09/2013
Blackmoor was great.Loved seeing the gator.Due to an injury aquired on Tuesday,my golfing was not good, but the course was superb.
JeffDate Played: 07/04/2013
We loved Blackmoor. Fantastic bang for your buck. One player in our group said I'd play this every day of the week if I could.
BarryDate Played: 07/01/2013
Was a great day... met by a very personable attendant, and that friendliness continued with everyone we met... in the Pro Shop, Grill, Starter, everyone. The course was in great shape, even though we had a hard rain in the early morning before the round. Well maintained and beautiful surroundings... the cemetery on one of the holes was kinda cool. Was a great day with some good friends on a great course.
GrantDate Played: 06/28/2013
Excellent experience all around. Will definitely play here again.
AndyDate Played: 06/24/2013

Beautiful golf course with a very accommodating staff. We will definitely come back and play Blackmoor again and will recommend it to any of our friends who may come to the Myrtle Beach area in the future.
BillDate Played: 06/17/2013
From all the positive reviews I read on Blackmoor, I expected a impeccable experience. I was very disappointed with the conditions of the fairways. Had to roll the ball in the fairways many times to find grass to hit the ball on turf. The tee boxes were in terrible shape. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The course design was extremely favorable to someone who fades the ball. The greens were just aerated a week earlier, but rolled nicely. Would definately come back to enjoy the great layout and hopefully improved conditions.
TimDate Played: 06/13/2013
Really nice golf course with a very friendly staff
RogerDate Played: 06/10/2013
My wife and I played Blackmoor for the first time and I must say I was very impressed with everything about this very beautiful course. The course was in excellent condition and the entire staff that we came in contact with was so nice. My wife really enjoyed the course. Probably because she beat me by 4 shots. Blackmoor is going to be the first course we want to play when we come back to Myrtle Beach.
PeterDate Played: 06/06/2013
Absolutely love this course. I have always enjoyed playing at Blackmoor. Everytime I've have played it the course seems to be in great shape. The staff is so friendly and polite and treat you with the utmost respect. I would highly recommended this course to anyone!! A must play while visiting in Myrtle Beach.

Beautiful golf course....fun to play....great staff...definitely will play again.
StephenDate Played: 06/03/2013
My son and I are in Myrtle Beach for a week of golf. So far, Blackoor is our favorite course. Course is in great condition. We were paired up with a local couple (Glenn and Dianna) who were great to play with and informative. Play did start out slow (2.5 hours for the first 9) but picked up on the back. This course is on our repeat list.
TimothyDate Played: 06/03/2013
Liked the course and would play again.

MikeDate Played: 06/03/2013
Very good course. If you want a great course for the value, this is one of the best in Myrtle. Very playable but a lot of doglegs so if that is not for you, stay away but course is in great shape and a great value.
JeremyDate Played: 05/29/2013
We truly enjoyed playing Blackmoor. The course is in great condition although I wish the greens were a little more receptive..they seemed very hard. Blackmoor's staff is one of the most friendly staffs that we have ever encountered in our golf trips. Kudos to Blackmoor for giving us a very enjoyable golfing experience.
SusanneDate Played: 05/27/2013
Myself and a few other ladies came and played Blackmoor today. It was a great day for us, forgiving layout from the red tees and also the wildlife was spectacular. We took some great pictures of some alligators and birds. We will be back!
JerryDate Played: 05/21/2013
The course was in good shape, and I really can't complain about anything with the discount I got. I guess if there was anything I would be discouraged on was the 7-doglegs. I like to open the driver up a little more. I throttled back and played pretty good - as long as you know that coming into the course - it is all good. The greens were really smooth and I made a lot of putts.
MitchDate Played: 05/21/2013
The staff was exceptionally friendly and professional.
BillyDate Played: 05/20/2013
Great golf course and fun to play. The entire staff at Blackmoor is one of the best we have ever had on our trips to Myrtle Beach. We will play Blackmoor everytime we return to Blackmoor.
GeorgeDate Played: 05/20/2013
Very enjoyable course to play. The entire staff at Blackmoor made us feel so welcomed. From the Bag Drop to the Golf Shop to the Starter and the Ranger..everyone was wonderful and Lori in the grill was so nice. We truly enjoyed our round of golf at Blackmoor and we will be back many more times.
JamesDate Played: 05/20/2013
I was expecting a more upgrade course and Blackmoor played as an average one. All in all, I enjoyed my round of golf and the course was very good. The tee boxes were below par they were not level. The fairways could use more water. The Greens were in excellent shape. The sand traps were very poor, hard sand not ranked and wet. With that being said I would play this course again. I did enjoy the lay out of the course. The staff was fairly and helpful.
PaulDate Played: 05/20/2013
The fairways were in need of mowing. The overall condition was mediocre at best. Not a bad layout with proper grooming.
RogerDate Played: 05/20/2013
What a great golfing experience we had at Blackmoor. From the time we pulled up to the bag drop and were greeted so pleasantly to the end of round every employee that we came in contact with, the Pro Shop, the Snack Bar ladies, the Starter and Ranger made us feel so welcomed. Your staff is best that we have ever had in our golfing trips. Compliments to your superintendent and his staff for giving us a superbly conditioned golf course to play. Thank you all for a memorable experience and we will be back as soon as we can to Blackmoor again.

Its always a pleasure to play at Blackmoor, I play here often and the course is always in great condition. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone.
RichDate Played: 05/08/2013
Very disappointed in the shape the course was in for this time of the year, the fairways were 3 inches high.
MikeDate Played: 05/08/2013
One of the best courses we played in Myrtle Beach. Course is in oustanding condition and the entire staff is very friendly and accommadating.
MichaelDate Played: 05/06/2013
What we did not like about the course is they start tee times on the front and the back nine simultaneously, resulting in too many golfers on the course. This caused our round to last longer than five hours. Also, the course was still cart path two days after a down pour, while others in the vicinity were not. So the course does not drain well. My advice for folks seeking to play here would be make sure there has not been any rain for a few days, and try to catch them when they are not over booked for tee times. In addition, the grill food was poor quality. The day we were there a sign was prominintly displayed that indicated there was a BBQ buffet for $8.50. The person attending the grill at the time was unaware that this special existed, and when it was brought out to us all it was was chopped pork, coleslaw, beans and chips, with a 8 oz cup of tea.
LarryDate Played: 05/02/2013
I'm writing to let the management at Blackmoor Golf Club know what a professional, helpful, and caring staff you have working there. I was fortunate enough to meet Reed on April 7th. I explained to him that I left my coupons at the airport, he was concerned and told me that it was not a problem. He took the time to call the three other courses and relayed my story. Everything worked great, the Pro Shop Staff, Bag men, Cart girl were all very friendly and helpful. That's the third time I played and I will be playing there on Tuesday, also. Thanks again
ChristopherDate Played: 05/01/2013
I was excited about this course because your site gave it a good rating, and it was the most expensive course I played so I expected good things. I will say it was quite difficult. There were doglegs everywhere and some narrow fairways. Also thick woods lined almost every hole which made any bad shot a lost ball. And bad shots were quite common with their poorly conditioned fairways. They seemed very poorly drained. It hadn't rained in a several days and there were wet/muddy spots all over the course. I was very upset with my round there and will not play at Blackmoor again.
BobDate Played: 04/29/2013
Would pass on playing again.
MikeDate Played: 04/27/2013

Big disappointment, large clumps of mowed grass around the green, greens were rough, would not recommend is course. Staff is very friendly
MelDate Played: 04/26/2013
A very pleasant surprise course. On the easy side which makes it great for a large group. Some of the best greens we played, very fair and true. Some of the dog legs are a mystery when playing for the first time. A keeper when booking package for golf. Best to be played on last day when guys have to get to airport.
SamDate Played: 04/26/2013
Definitely the least liked course for our group of the package. It was non-descript in design and had some tricked up holes. Also happened to be an extremely windy day (15-30 mph) winds made it hard to get to greens from normal tees I would play.
RobertDate Played: 04/25/2013
A nice course, but no carts were available for us until almost tee time (they clearly need more carts). Carts were cart path only which really slowed down play.
DarrylDate Played: 04/25/2013
This is probably the best course I have played in a long time. Very well kept. The staff were super.
EdwardDate Played: 04/25/2013
Nothing specific. Thought that it was a nice course
DanielDate Played: 04/25/2013
Blackmoor was one of the best that we play in our package. Thank to Mr. Bogart that was one of his suggestion.
DaveDate Played: 04/24/2013
We last played Blackmoor in 2007 and were disappointed with the tee decks. We were all impressed this time around and will definitely play it again.Staff was very attentive and friendly.
BrianDate Played: 04/23/2013
Every year 16 guys from Canada make a trip to MB. We last played Blackmoor in 2007. We were very disappointed with the condition of the course and vowed never to go back. We decided last Friday to give your course a second chance. Wow!! Were we impressed. Talking with the starter he informed us that you took out thousands of trees in order to make the course better. Congratulations!! The course was one of the best conditioned courses we played last week. We definitely will return next year . Brian Cross(part of the Moulden group of 16)
WesleyDate Played: 04/23/2013
Gary likes the doglegs right. Seems every other hole was that way. Though the layout was a little cute on some holes. Not really friendly to the oldr golfer, particularly if you'd never played it before.
DannyDate Played: 04/23/2013
ENJOYED THE COURSE
JohnDate Played: 04/23/2013
All four of us liked the course the best of all the ones we played in MB. Super layout and the most well marked course (yardage) I've ever seen. Would definitely play it again!
ShelleyDate Played: 04/22/2013
Unfortunately we had to play Cart Path Only because of so much rain. The course did not drain too well and the fairways were not cut because they could not get to mowers on the wet course.

DaveDate Played: 04/03/2013
A great final day for golf with nice sunny warm skies. This course was the favorite of the group, with both easy shots and tricky testers. It was fun to play and made for an ideal finish to a wonderful week on the Grand Strand.

Played for 30 years now and my wife played for 6 months. First time to play in this beautiful, great Gary Player designed golf course with very challenging layout but not intimidating for first time players like my wife. Very private and peaceful scenery. Houses don't intrude on golf course. Very friendly staff that welcomed us warmly. The starter was very courteous. Enjoy different types of holes with well maintained greens and fairways. We will be playing here again.
RobertDate Played: 03/29/2013
The course was challenging, but friendly enough for my wife to enjoy playing. It is our favorite course here.
DonaldDate Played: 03/27/2013
The course needs local knowledge...so didn'appreciate having to buy the little booklet for 3.50 to learn the intricacies of a heavily dog legged course...also felt that ##14 was a gimmicky hole with no real redeeming features

MartinDate Played: 03/12/2013
I played Blackmoor today with friends from Canada. This is a great track and a great deal ($55.00)compared to other courses in Myrtle - much more expensive and not nearly as interesting as this great Gary Player design. The Pro Shop staff were great and friendly. The breakfast sandwiches were enjoyed by all. The Course works on a 1 / 10 split tee. We played the front nine in 2 hrs and the back nine with course full in 2.5 hrs. for a total of just under 4 and 1/2 hours. This one will be a course I will come back to again and again.

Best experience we've had in Myrtle Beach in years. Staff was friendly and helpful, course was in fine shape as well! Can't wait until next year, we will definitely be coming back!
TrentDate Played: 03/11/2013
First time out on the course and we had a great time. The young man in the pro shop was great to our group, and the course was in great condition(greens were a little too fast for me). We will be booking again next time!
StephenDate Played: 03/11/2013
Really enjoyed the course. Nice layout and fun holes. The staff was fantastic at accommodating us. Hope to be back soon.

RobertDate Played: 03/06/2013
Well conditioned, very playable despite cool day with steady 10/15 wind ... played back tees, course length shorter than typical however nice mix of holes, used every club in bag .... course designed so that everything is in front of you except hole ##15 (blind dogleg right, water long straight/ along leftside) ... staff was professional, pleasant and were very genuine during our interactions ... highly enjoyable day!

Really like the course.Played 27.
TimothyDate Played: 02/25/2013
We played on 2/24/13 and I was totally surprised with the course. We play it every year for last five years and I was never really pleased with the conditions. This year I have to say they have improved dramatically. Every part of the course was in great shape, from the friendly staff to the tees, fairways, and greens. I have played about 20 rounds of golf this winter on different courses and this is in better shape than most. If I wasn't heading home this week, I'd go back. We had two days of heavy rain so it was cart path only and there was some puddling in the fairways but the greens were great and consistent.

The course was very wet but not the courses problem. The starter was wonderful

DelDate Played: 01/17/2013
Exciting golf layout, with lots of generous landing areas off the tee. The back tees are challenging but not playing so long that most good golfers won't find too tough to play. Beautiful to the eye, fun to play... exacting what most golfers are looking for in Myrtle Beach.
CurtDate Played: 01/16/2013
Nice layout and challenging course. Only course in my life that ever came out to a group to tell me we were playing too fast and needed to slow up??
JamesDate Played: 01/14/2013
It had rained earlier in the week and several holes were carts on path. Can't fault Blackmoor. Overall great experience and fun course.

Good for the season.
JohnDate Played: 12/09/2012
Fun course to play!
BudDate Played: 12/05/2012
Little or no grass on the greens, extremely fast and didn't hold, won't be back if this the way the greens will be for fall golf!
SergioDate Played: 12/04/2012
We had the misfortune of having our golf clubs stolen on the Thursday night. Brian at the Blackmoor pro shop was extremely helpful and understanding of our situation. He was quite obliging, suiting us with some rental sets in order that we may enjoy the round of golf.
GaryDate Played: 12/04/2012
Interesting layout with lots of placement shots from the tee. The choice of grass for the greens was the one negative about the course. Although would play again because of the challenge.
UweDate Played: 12/03/2012
Had a nice round.

All the courses and staff at the courses & staff at the hotel were excellent, very friendly. Really enjoyed our stay and the golf courses we played.

It was LADY FRIENDLY! We enjoyed the course very much. Will book it again.
NelsonDate Played: 11/15/2012
This time of year you were overseeding. the fairways were very wet and that made iron play very difficult for us flatlanders in the mid-west.
AndyDate Played: 11/13/2012
Tough course, excellent playing ... type of course that you feel you could do better with another play.

BruceDate Played: 11/12/2012
Cart path only, in our group of 34 most are over 60 any about half over 70. We can't always keep up pace, don't be rude!!! Many have had hip or knee replacements and just can't move very fast. It's frustrating for me too, I play fast, you have to expect slow play with mature folks and cart path only. We limit to triple bogeys, play ready golf.
KennyDate Played: 11/12/2012
Not what we thought; not a play in 2013.

LloydDate Played: 11/07/2012
A great playable course. Greens were firm & fast. On #14 do not tee off with a club that can be hit more than 220 yds., if hit down the middle toward the flag marker at the water.

KevinDate Played: 11/06/2012
Beautiful course, will play it again next year.
JackieDate Played: 11/01/2012
We played five courses. When making our tee and times, I informed the agent that I would be having my friends make there own tee times for Wachesaw East and Blackmoor, since they live in Murrells Inlet. The agent told me he would inform the course that they would be playing with us and making their own call to confirm. For both courses, when they called up, the course we not aware to this information. The courses had already paired us up with 2 other people. We did get it settled, but we should not have had to do that. Also, we were not informed of the Wednesday night golf get-together at Long Bay.
RobertDate Played: 10/31/2012
Course was very wet presumably from watering the overseeding. We were not informed of the conditions prior to play.
GerryDate Played: 10/31/2012
We have always had trouble on this course. Usually rain delay or rain out. Last time it was cart path only. I voted with our team not to go there again. It doesn't seem to be our lucky course.
BillDate Played: 10/31/2012
We like playing here but some of the rangers are obnoxious. Course was in great shape but wet. Ladies in the grill are super.
DannyDate Played: 10/31/2012
We were disappointed that a foursome of women were put out in front of us on the replay. We waited every shot and just did get done by dark.
JimDate Played: 10/29/2012
Would have like to know course had been overseeded.
GeorgeDate Played: 10/29/2012
One of our favorite courses, very friendly people.
CarlDate Played: 10/28/2012
The fairways were extremely wet. The starters were pushy, telling us we were 7 min. behind and then 8 min. behind. When we were held up, waiting 20 minutes for the tee, they were not around!

DewayneDate Played: 10/23/2012

PaulDate Played: 10/23/2012
This is the weakest course we played. The condition of the course was fair to good. There are a lot nicer courses on the strand so it's hard to get excited about this one.
JamesDate Played: 10/18/2012
Did not like the many dogleg holes. It seemed like they did not have enough room to build the course, so they had to keep putting in a dogleg.

Played on 10/12/2012 with my wife and another couple. Course was in great shape and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the many doglegs. Just have to think off the tee. No need to Grip N Rip on every hole. We are looking forward to returning. We did see an alligator on the bank of the lake.

Ran behind because 23 people showed up to play.
FredDate Played: 10/14/2012

ThomasDate Played: 10/10/2012
Very beautiful, special feeling while playing, morning fog turning into partly cloudy sky. A placement course, where length is less important, many dog legs. Set in well to surroundings.

JamesDate Played: 10/09/2012
Very nice and enjoyable course. Greens were in great shape and rolled true. Would play here again, but so many courses in MB and so little time unfortunately.

A very nice course worth playing, but because of so many courses available, I would prefer a chance to play another.

The course was in good shape and the speed of play was great.
BarbaraDate Played: 10/03/2012
We loved the woman friendly course. We'll play it again.
RobertDate Played: 10/01/2012
This course was the most challenging but enjoyable at the same time. Fairways were reasonably wide but lots of doglegs made scoring low difficult. Only 4 tee selections make playing forward for elderly women a long course.
HarryDate Played: 10/01/2012
Enjoyed playing the course.
RandyDate Played: 09/27/2012
The course is in great shape but the real plus is the staff. Most courses are at least polite and respectful - Blackmoor's staff is sincerely friendly from the time you drop your clubs off at the bag drop all the way until you return your cart to leave. They make you feel that you are always welcome to spend some time with them.
TomDate Played: 09/25/2012
Blackmoor was in good shape. We enjoyed the experience and would play again.
JohnDate Played: 09/21/2012
Great course with nice routing. Areas in front of greens were very wet, more so than the rest of the course.
CDate Played: 09/20/2012
First time we played this course. We were very pleased. We liked everything EXCEPT the groomers that caused us a 15 min wait while he 'blew the fairway!! Didn't appreciate that at all.
SandyDate Played: 09/20/2012
OMG! What a great crew of people! On September 11, 2012 my husband and I arrived at Blackmoor for our tee time and from the time we got out of the taxi right through to getting back in, we felt and were treated like family. Bob Medros and his team were amazing. Our sincerest thanks to ALL at Blackmoor Golf Course. Our favorite on trip by far and not because I got my first hole in one on #2! Can't wait to see you all next year!
KerryDate Played: 09/18/2012
Fun to play, friendly staff.
JeffreyDate Played: 09/18/2012
Loved the layout of the course. The entire staff was awesome. Starter let us know exactly what to expect on the course. The course provided plenty of challenges and opportunities. Was a little disappointed at the general dryness of the course, but droughts will do that. Still, the greens, while firm and fast, should not have been as burned out as they were. Overall, an excellent experience. Hope to play there again.

Staff was great, course not in best condition, played other courses which were better.
JeromeDate Played: 09/11/2012
It was a great course. It was wet after the rain particularly on the fairways. Our only issue with Blackmoor was after we teed off at 12:10 pm later when my wife and I came into the clubhouse at the turn it was very humid and 95 degrees. We were rushed back out by a gentleman in the clubhouse near the grill and was told twice that if we didn't go back out in 5 minutes we might not play the back nine. Our plan was to grab a bite at the grill, regroup, let some people play thru and then attack the back 9. This is normal at courses we've played. We bought 2 bags of Doritos, rushed back out and eventually quit on the 16th hole and went to a restaurant on the boardwalk for lunch.
PhillipDate Played: 09/07/2012
Everything was great. Loved holes 7, 12 greens are fast.
BryanDate Played: 08/31/2012
Due to bad rain past few days course was wet but that's out of the control of you guys and understandable ... staff very friendly and offered rain check if we were unhappy with conditions ... can't wait to play here again hopefully it will be sunny and dry next time but again this was out of your control.
CraigDate Played: 08/31/2012
Course was a fair course with some unique holes. Worth playing of the 5 we played during the week but rain the previous day made the fairways terrible on several holes. Several areas before greens do not drain well. Pro shop staff very friendly. Had a tee time and teed off 20 minutes late because of backups and this was on a Monday.
DavidDate Played: 08/31/2012
We enjoyed the very interesting layout. Greens rolled very true but the course was EXTREMELY wet. Could certainly understand the cart path only rule today. Would play again for sure.
RichardDate Played: 08/30/2012
Nice layout and good challenge. Problem of saturated course due lots of previous rain. Staff helpful.
MarkDate Played: 08/27/2012
What we liked most was that even though it was a challenging course we were able to keep pace with better players - quality of the course was much better than we get to play on in our area - thanks for the good experience - everyone was very helpful.
DennisDate Played: 08/24/2012
The bag checking staff and starter were all very grumpy and acted as if they were doing you a favor to allow you to play on their course. Too bad because the course was in great shape.
JohnDate Played: 08/21/2012
Somehow the reservation was incorrect upon arrival. Therefore, I had to spend time in the pro shop clearing up the mistake. Then due to an afternoon tournament, my party was pushed along at least 10 times by the staff in order to make room for the tournament. This experience was irritating and made the entire round of golf a bad experience for the party playing. We played another round of golf at another venue the next day and enjoyed the round significantly more than Blackmoor. I will strongly consider never playing Blackmoor again.
JayDate Played: 08/21/2012
Very fair course, well maintained. Enjoyed all the holes!
BryanDate Played: 08/17/2012
Everyone very nice and helpful, good range, greens in good shape, fairways and tee boxes in great shape. Liked that both sides of the fairway weren't lined with pine trees like many courses. Lots of memorable holes. Only complaint was rough had been mowed and in a few spots they had waited way too long. But it's been extremely wet recently in the area so I imagine it's the first time in a while they could get it all. Overall great course and I'd go back for sure.
NeilDate Played: 08/16/2012
Liked the whole layout. Favorite hole: par 4 with the split fairway. I like all the flowers throughout the course. It was very slow for playing in the afternoon. I liked there was no cutting equipment going all over the place.
NanDate Played: 08/15/2012
Very friendly and helpful staff; lots of doglegs on the course for challenging play. Course was quite wet and did not drain as quickly as I expected given the heat.

DavidDate Played: 07/24/2012
Staff was exceptional throughout the experience. When I checked in, the Pro Shop realized that my son was young enough to qualify to play for free. I had booked online, so while I played, they contacted the company I made the reservation through. While still on the course, I received an email confirming the refund of my son's greens fees.
BarryDate Played: 07/22/2012
The starter and check-in person were very friendly. The course was in excellent condition. The ranger check in on us as it was hot and gave us a few pointers on the hole we were playing. We will definitely be back. Thank you.
RicoDate Played: 07/21/2012
Playing the double split fairway was interesting, the condition on how wet course and having no cart on fairways and more info on blind approach shots.
MikeDate Played: 07/20/2012
Very wet grass that was cut in fairway, the clippings were very long, left cut grass all over.
EugeneDate Played: 07/18/2012
The wet conditions are the reason for not having a higher rating. Will be looking forward to playing the course again when I return to the beach.
JamesDate Played: 07/17/2012
Course was good, unfortunately the course received about 2 of rain the day before so the fairways were very wet and the ball plugged a lot. Had to play lift n clean that day.
DonDate Played: 07/16/2012
Greens in great shape, putted smoothly. Course staff very friendly and stopped to discuss our round and our thoughts about the course. Will play the course again.

LarryDate Played: 06/29/2012
Nice layout, but get a yardage book the 1st time! Course in excellent condition for summer. Greens very true. Played with one of the starters on his off day; very courteous and was helpful in understanding the course.

LarryDate Played: 06/27/2012
Played this course as a single and was placed with 2 local, retired gentlemen who coached me through the layout. The course is very well designed and maintained. Fun to play! The staff was very accommodating. There are a lot of right doglegs, so it was a challenge to me since I hit a draw. Returning on Friday with my nephew and brother-in-law.
DwayneDate Played: 06/26/2012
Very good layout and course condition.
TimothyDate Played: 06/26/2012
Had avoided the course for years thinking the fairways may be too tight for some of my errant drives. Was really pleased with the layout and beautiful condition of fairways and roughs. There are quite a few doglegs to the right but only one to the left, but unless you really miss the ball it's hard to get in too much trouble. Will play again!
MichaelDate Played: 06/25/2012
Plenty of places to hit your driver as far as possible, but sometimes that gets you in trouble so you have to really think your way around this course.
RayDate Played: 06/20/2012
Have played the course several times & it's always a great course. Greens were recently punched but putts still rolled great. This course has the best staff in Myrtle & course is always in excellent condition.
A.J.Date Played: 06/19/2012
Have to say out of all the courses I have played in the area the service at Blackmoor was the best I have had. Right from the time we parked the car to the time we drove away it was outstanding. The course was in great shape!! The only reason why the greens were fair is due to being punched and they have not fully come back yet. I played with my girlfriend and sister and we all had a blast!! I would recommend this course to anyone that is looking for outstanding service and a super fun track!
RodneyDate Played: 06/17/2012
Greens were recently aerated so they were in marginal shape. Cart path only do to very recent heavy rains. Several women's tee boxes were under repair so it played a little shorter than what it already is. The starter gave good information and the attendant gave superior service.
JerryDate Played: 06/16/2012
Did not care for ALL the little flags marking distances. It takes one's ability to judge distance away. If one is that unsure of themselves get a distance finder. Otherwise had a good time and enjoyed the course again.
CharlesDate Played: 06/09/2012
Starter gave us great tips! It really is a unique course with each hole having its own challenges and personality. As average, older golfers, hitting from the gold tees was a fair approach. May be my favorite course of all time.
HaroldDate Played: 05/29/2012
Enjoyed the course, but wouldn't play again. All staff and pro shop were exceptionally nice and friendly!
GeorgeDate Played: 05/28/2012
This was my second time playing there and it was great! Very challenging and just fun to play.
SandraDate Played: 05/28/2012
Course was great, just did not play well but That's Golf.
MarkDate Played: 05/28/2012
Great course. Have played several times. Course is cutting the rough down too much. No real penalty for missed fairways.
JosephDate Played: 05/26/2012
The staff was wonderful, as were the regulars I was paired with. The experience was exceptional, and one I'd repeat the next time I'm in the area.
JohnDate Played: 05/25/2012
We were only able to play front nine as a thunderstorm moved in, but enjoyed the course otherwise. Everyone was called off the course and we sat in the clubhouse for 2 hours with no communication from the staff on what was happening. They could have communicated better with the players crammed into the lunch room on what the radar indicated.
RobertDate Played: 05/24/2012
Just a pleasure in every aspect of play.
GaryDate Played: 05/23/2012
Good, I would repeat.
JasonDate Played: 05/17/2012
It was nice for my wife to see other women present. It did get very slow mid round. The rangers were trying.

CatherineDate Played: 05/15/2012
The course was in fabulous shape and we played 4 of our 10 rounds on vacation at Blackmoor and love it.
DaveDate Played: 05/15/2012
Had I known in advance that there was an outing scheduled around the same time as we teed off, I would have played the course another day. We felt rushed and pushed during most of the front nine. We did a replay of the front nine later in the day and everything was much better.
ChrisDate Played: 05/14/2012
The starter was the best! He gave us a warm welcome and told us about the alligators. We actually met and photographed three of the alligators. What a great memory! Beautiful course. Would have liked directions to course in the golf package.
WayneDate Played: 05/14/2012
A little disorganized at the bag drop due to a large and undisciplined group but the course was magnificent!
JohnDate Played: 05/13/2012
Blackmoor is consistently a good experience.
CharlesDate Played: 05/12/2012
Course in good shape. Wide fairways. Very few bunkers. Very little water. Good course for all levels of players.
CharlesDate Played: 05/09/2012
Greens, fairways and tee boxes in great shape. Lush and green everywhere. Staff was very courteous and attentive to our needs.
AlanDate Played: 05/01/2012
Several holes provided minimal information regarding appropriate target lines especially those with severe doglegs. One hole had a plaque on the tee box but you had already left your golf cart and climbed several stairs to the elevated tee. That plaque should be down at cart level. I would have played many holes differently on a second trip around.
JDate Played: 05/01/2012
Shorter target course makes it a fun second 18 round.
JimDate Played: 04/30/2012
Loved the course layout ... course in great condition ... would definitly get the course guide for the first time playing ... definitely a 'must' play again course.
NathanDate Played: 04/30/2012
It was beautiful all the way around it. Very smooth and easy to navigate for a beginner like myself. Will definitely be coming back.
KurtDate Played: 04/29/2012
Everyone is friendly. Nice layout for mid and higher handicaps with tees at appropriate distance. (Can't say about low handicaps, but it seemed that back tee location added quite a bit of yardage on most holes, so there is added challenge for the single digit players). One of the better values in MB area. But, everyone seems to know that and the course is always full. We started past our tee time, and it took close to 5 hours to play. I play Blackmoor every time I am in MB, which is twice a year.
MarkDate Played: 04/27/2012
Playability was very good. Easy to get around and fair for golfers of all skill levels.
GaryDate Played: 04/25/2012
Very enjoyable rounds (we played an evening 9 and two morning 18's) ... Really enjoyed the pace and layout of course ... well run, even with a foggy morning and plenty of tee times backed up. Never felt pushed or rushed, even with a new golfer in our foursome. Never got a good read on the greens, but would return and play again and again. Nice layout, challenge for my skill set.
AliDate Played: 04/24/2012

For the price - this place is a must. Great layout - well maintained - excellent greens.

JasonDate Played: 04/20/2012
Lots of right doglegs on this course which is frustrating at times (especially if your a lefty). But the course was in good shape overall and there are a couple of gators swimming around the ponds!
RichardDate Played: 04/18/2012
My foursome contained some very experienced and knowledgeable golfers and we all came away very impressed with our round. This course is a definite repeat when in Myrtle Beach. Excellent course conditions and visually breathtaking!
RichardDate Played: 04/16/2012
Great experience. Enjoyed it all.
DanDate Played: 04/16/2012
Great short course. Loved every hole. A shot-makers course.
PeterDate Played: 04/15/2012
Course in great shape, my son and I had a fantastic experience.
AndrewDate Played: 04/13/2012
We loved playing next to gators. The fairways and greens were excellent.
JasonDate Played: 04/12/2012
Fun track ... very well conditioned, pace of play was great. Will come back.
DarrenDate Played: 04/11/2012
Pro shop staff was amazing. Grill & beer cart staff were good. Fairways, tees & greens were in excellent shape. Our issue with this course was the layout. 235 yards off the tee for the many doglegs took the driver out of our hands way to often for our liking. We like to be able to hit driver on most holes (we are all 7 handicap or better) & this layout took some of the fun away. As mentioned though, conditions & staff were GREAT. Good practice area as well.
TrevorDate Played: 04/11/2012
Slow start to morning at their course. The starter was not prepared and took it out on us. Course was just okay. I expected more from Gary Player's only course here. Pro shop said go and starter was nowhere to be found. Starter stormed down first fairway and dragged us back to tee for no real reason. Oh well, we all have those kind of days sometimes. We just didn't need to experience it.
GeorgeDate Played: 04/10/2012
Course was in great shape, saw 4 gators during round. Overall great experience!
LeeDate Played: 04/10/2012
Fairways are really tight and sometimes you have an awkward stance even though you hit into the middle of the fairway. LOTS of bugs. Got eaten alive by mosquitos. Practice putting and chipping greens were tiny and very crowded.
KennyDate Played: 04/09/2012
Very playable, challenging holes. Knowledgeable starter with tips about the course. Greens were very consistent.
StewartDate Played: 04/09/2012
Great experience! The course was in great condition. I hope to play here again. We even saw the course gator on hole number 9. Everyone was very helpful.
KevinDate Played: 04/07/2012
Excellent course and in beautiful condition. Greens are difficult to read. Groups start on the front and back at the same time. We played the front in 1 hour and 42 minutes, then waited to tee off on the back and it took 2 1/2 hours.
GregoryDate Played: 04/03/2012
Challenging and speed of play was excellent.
MarkDate Played: 04/02/2012
JohnDate Played: 04/01/2012
Good course. Many doglegs.
MilesDate Played: 03/31/2012
Overall, beautiful course, in great shape and very helpful staff. It's a very interesting course that makes you think. I would absolutely play here again. I got there late and couldn't take the time to see if they had yardage books for sale. This would be a must for first time. Web site basically has detailed yardage book for every hole.
YeeDate Played: 03/31/2012
Excellent course condition, good yardage markers, a lot of dogleg holes, ladies friendly course.
MichaelDate Played: 03/31/2012
This was a great experience. Good course and GREAT staff.
JimDate Played: 03/31/2012
The course is beautiful! A nice track between the towering pines. I really enjoyed seeing a gator sunning on the 16th fairway - the first time I've ever seen a wild gator! The greens weren't the fastest, but they rolled true (i.e. not a lot of spike or ball marks). Overall I really enjoyed the experience!
MichelDate Played: 03/30/2012
Well-maintained course; will return.
VinceDate Played: 03/30/2012
Course was in great shape and holes were very interesting. I had fun playing it and I do play a lot of courses.
RyanDate Played: 03/25/2012

DonaldDate Played: 03/24/2012
Very nice course; will definitely play again.
ChristopherDate Played: 03/21/2012
My group & I consider Blackmoor as one of our favorite courses to play. The first time we played this great course was in 1992. We make it a point to play every trip to MB.

PeterDate Played: 03/20/2012
MarkDate Played: 03/19/2012
Nice course. Ranger was tough, we were waiting almost all day but pace was good. On the back nine we had one guy lose a ball in the woods which slowed us a couple minutes and the ranger happened to go by and see a half hole gap in front of us so he told us to pick up the pace which was fine. However, when I tried to explain what happened he rejected it and said just hurry up. Real idiot!
KenDate Played: 03/19/2012
Very nice course. Have been coming to Myrtle for over 25 years and have never played it, big mistake. Loved the course. Great water holes greens in great shape fairways also. I'll be back.
SeanDate Played: 03/16/2012
Not helpful at all with pace of play and water cart person was very rude.
JasonDate Played: 03/14/2012
Nice course, friendly staff and abundant wildlife.
AllenDate Played: 03/09/2012
An OK course. Don't have a favorite hole.
MartyDate Played: 03/07/2012
Staff were very helpful and polite. Course layout and the gators made it a unique experience.
SeanDate Played: 03/06/2012
Last course we played and it was so fun. Great weather, greens were in good shape, a little slow, but for the time of year can't complain. Fairways and tees were in great shape as well. Always a joy to play. Would recommend.
BruceDate Played: 03/02/2012

(Would like to have known prior to play) if we were paired with others.
EdgarDate Played: 02/13/2012
Excellent layout and a great bag attendant. One unique feature was the choice of fairways on the one Par 4.
HaroldDate Played: 02/13/2012
Not as good as I had hoped. Would not play again.
RonDate Played: 02/10/2012
One of our favorite courses.
JosephDate Played: 02/06/2012
Nice course layout.
MichaelDate Played: 02/02/2012
It's a playable course.
KenDate Played: 02/02/2012
An average golf experience.
MichaelDate Played: 01/30/2012
Did not like so many cart path only holes ... overwatered some areas.
DaleDate Played: 01/08/2012
JulieDate Played: 01/07/2012
Great course - lots of doglegs. Glad I was playing with locals or I would have gone for some wrong pins. Maybe get a course book. The red tees played very true for my game and made it feel like golf should. I would come back next time I'm in Myrtle Beach.
TimothyDate Played: 01/07/2012
The course is in good shape but the layout is only okay. The greens are really hard to putt because of the grain. This is not a bad choice if you're trying to keep to a budget, but I would look elsewhere if you have limited rounds to play. The first tee times are 9 a.m. and they double tee, so the course was backing up before we started and got very slow on our back nine. Also, the starter was a little gruff.
RayDate Played: 01/05/2012
Course is in excellent condition. Greens rolled really good. Best staff in Myrtle.
PaulDate Played: 12/15/2011
The condition of the course made our last day.
StuartDate Played: 12/11/2011
Very glad I chose Blackmoor. Great staff. Course challenging and in great shape.
DianaDate Played: 12/05/2011
Loved the course and the guys we played with. Not too happy about marshall hounding us when we waited on players ahead, but saw a female and assumed.
ReneDate Played: 12/01/2011
Good course, #8 is a good challenge.
JohnDate Played: 11/30/2011
Fantastic course and people. Starter and pro shop personnel were fantastic.
MarioDate Played: 11/29/2011
Normal course; OK.
LeslieDate Played: 11/28/2011
Greens are great.
GrantDate Played: 11/26/2011
The staff at Blackmoor was helpful and very friendly. A few holes were a bit gimmicky and with only a scorecard it was hard to tell where to hit your drive. Did not use the grill facilities.
ThomasDate Played: 11/25/2011
Very nice course in excellent condition, friendly staff. A couple rangers were seen and heard more often than they should have been.
RickDate Played: 11/24/2011
Nice course, good condition.
KeithDate Played: 11/24/2011
Fun course, in great shape. Would play there again. Pro shop staff were the nicest we had while at the beach. Pace of play was about 4.5 hour round, good for MB.
FrankDate Played: 11/23/2011
All personnel were very friendly and golf course was super to play. Will play again next year.
AlexDate Played: 11/22/2011
All staff from pro shop, bag drop, and starters were very courteous and helpful.
MichaelDate Played: 11/22/2011
Greens were fairly fast, but consistent and the ball rolled well. I liked the dogleg right, with bunker on right corner the best. The yardage to water should be posted since I hit a drive over the bunker and was only a few feet from the water. My playing partner left a club at the course and they kept it in the pro shop for us until the next day. Staff was very friendly, course was fun to play. Would recommend course to anyone to play.
GregDate Played: 11/21/2011
Course was in great shape this year. I like all the par 3's and number 8, would be nice if senior tees could be set up to make the right fairway more accessible ... went that way anyhow and made par.
EdDate Played: 11/18/2011
This course was okay, but it did not make a great impression on us. I would consider it again in the future, but not until I tried many of the other courses. Did not like starting off both tees in the morning.
DonaldDate Played: 11/18/2011
Course was in excellent condition, and staff was very accommodating. Very much enjoyed our experience here and will be back in the spring.
MichaelDate Played: 11/18/2011
Good all-around course.

Yardage marked well. Grill personnel did well to recommend pork BBQ. Great course. Great greens.
RobertDate Played: 11/14/2011
Very enjoyable course for our group. We were paired up with a local and he made the round a lot of fun. Had some good stories and suggestions.
BruceDate Played: 11/14/2011
We played with a member and he was great. We enjoyed the course very much.
SeanDate Played: 11/13/2011
Everything was great. Thank you for an enjoyable round.

It was good.
DanDate Played: 11/12/2011
Fun course; liked it.
GordonDate Played: 11/10/2011
Like the layout, with some split fairways and multi-level greens. We really enjoyed Blackmoor.
RaymondDate Played: 11/08/2011
Would have been nice to have a course book. So many doglegs that we didn't know where to hit to prior to the turn. Not enough details as to how far to hit the ball on your first shot.
RayDate Played: 11/08/2011
The Monster - 8th hole - I went for it and was rewarded.
RickDate Played: 11/07/2011
I enjoyed the doglegs.
JimDate Played: 11/05/2011
One of the best conditioned courses with an outstanding staff, top to bottom. The greens are as good as any on the Beach.
TravisDate Played: 11/03/2011
One of my favorite courses. This is a must-go-to every time we come.
RayDate Played: 11/02/2011
The course in general was excellent, the only problem was the areas that had been over watered.
AndrewDate Played: 11/02/2011
Course was great. Overpriced drinks in the clubhouse.
EugeniaDate Played: 11/02/2011
It's a fun course to play. Greens were much faster than we're used to but had a good time.
MiltonDate Played: 11/01/2011
One of the best courses in Myrtle Beach. Another Gary Player masterpiece.
PeteDate Played: 11/01/2011
Excellent staff, good prices in clubhouse, fun course to play. Quick course to play, no waiting.
DavidDate Played: 10/31/2011
Nice course, good price.
RogerDate Played: 10/30/2011
Loved everything except the cart girl was very disinterested. She was more interested in talking on her cell phone than serving us!
ScottDate Played: 10/26/2011
Tees, fairways were shaggy in the morning round (played 36). Greens had lots of sand on them, slower than the rest of the courses we played. Lots of doglegs. Not sure why anyone would not take the shortcut on #8.
RandallDate Played: 10/25/2011
Very friendly to the female/senior golfer. Challenging but fair. Very friendly staff.
ArnoldDate Played: 10/22/2011
We enjoyed the views and the layout. We will play it again.
DavidDate Played: 10/21/2011
(Would like to have known prior to play) how tight the approach shot are and the waste areas. Too many waste areas come into play for the ladies in the group.
GillesDate Played: 10/20/2011

Enjoyed the course. Will play again.
TomDate Played: 10/16/2011
Although there was some confusion as to what date we had reservations to play, the staff was able to get us out without a problem. Course was great and we would definitely like to play Blackmoor again. Thanks.
NiklausDate Played: 10/15/2011
The course is fine and I played my best score here in Myrtle Beach 2 year ago and wanted to play again. My game today was really off.
RobertDate Played: 10/14/2011
BarryDate Played: 10/14/2011
played here on 10/4 and it took 5 1/2 hours. Been coming to Myrtle for 25 years and never encountered this. Ranger said it was due to staggered tee times ...

ThomasDate Played: 10/10/2011
Course was in good shape but greens were slow.
PierreDate Played: 10/09/2011
7 doglegs are a lot. Like the double tees on the par 4. Attendants and starter were very helpful and polite.
GeorgeDate Played: 10/06/2011
Good course, starter was great, everyone there seemed pleased we were there to play their course.
DickDate Played: 10/06/2011
Great experience! Wet fairways due to storm but overall a great time! Never knew Gary Player sliced so much to favor all those dogleg rights!
KatieDate Played: 10/05/2011
Course nice. Only problem was the rain had made the course very wet. Couldn't have been prevented because of the rain.
MikeDate Played: 10/04/2011
Great layout, fun round. Only negative was the course was still extremely wet, not as good drainage as other courses.
AllenDate Played: 10/01/2011
There were some unusual holes. The course was in great shape. The starters/ rangers were very helpful ... it was hot and they had ice and water about every 4 holes.
BillDate Played: 10/01/2011
Very nice course! We had a great time and Blackmoor was just one of our great choices.
JoeDate Played: 09/30/2011
Course was a swamp and the pace of play was awful. I had a talk with the starter about the group ahead of us but he said there was nothing he could do. It was an OK course but the group ahead of us just killed our day.
LarryDate Played: 09/29/2011
Fairways in good condition.
KevinDate Played: 09/22/2011
Nice course. Played a little short.
SandraDate Played: 09/20/2011
Short yardage was appreciated.
JeffDate Played: 09/19/2011
One of the top 3 courses I have played in Myrtle Beach. Course was in excellent shape, with the greens being perfect speed. I WILL play there again. Only complaint was the marshall asking us to pick up the pace of play, when we were the ones waiting on the groups ahead of us. I would've had to hit into the groups ahead of us to speed up!
RaymondDate Played: 09/19/2011
RogerDate Played: 09/19/2011
The course was in good condition, was not happy with the starter. We were supposed to tee off at 2 p.m. and they gave our tee time to a group that was supposed to tee off at 3 p.m. and wanted to move their time up. We had to wait about 20 minutes before we could tee off even though we were there 20 minutes early. They finally let us tee off the back as long as we met certain conditions (be done with certain holes by a certain time).
FredDate Played: 09/18/2011
Well-maintained course. Everything good. Just didn't excite me.
EdwardDate Played: 09/15/2011
Though recently aerated, the course was in great shape. Had an enjoyable round with 2 guys I had never met. Staff was pleasant and kept an unobtrusive eye on the pace of play which moved along very well considering the difficulty of some of the holes. Also, cold water was delivered on the 11th whole which was greatly appreciated.
RichardDate Played: 09/14/2011
Everything was very good - no problems, and I played my best game (80) that made my day!
RussellDate Played: 09/12/2011
Very well managed and maintained. I will play there again.
RickDate Played: 09/08/2011
The greens seemed rather flat, which helped my score considering it was my first time playing this course. The course as a hole was in first-rate condition. I intend on playing there again.
SylvieDate Played: 09/06/2011
It is not an overly difficult course (after playing TPC) and enjoyable for everyone.
RichardDate Played: 09/06/2011
The course did not punish you for slight mistakes.
LouiseDate Played: 09/03/2011
This course is in great condition. Not too difficult but challenging enough with different hole set ups and doglegs. Must think before hitting on tee box. Mainly flat. Nice course. Warm attitude from the player assistant. A course that we will play again.
ChrisDate Played: 09/01/2011
Fun layout. Staff was great.
JerryDate Played: 08/31/2011

WayneDate Played: 08/30/2011
The course was in great shape. The greens were not bad, looks like they were aerated not long ago.
SteveDate Played: 08/30/2011
Played 8-28 @7:30 a.m. Too foggy for 1st 4 holes but they sent us out anyhow. Friendly staff from bag man to starter and snack bar and check-in. Course in great shape, greens were terrific. Very pleasant experience once fog lifted and we could see the holes.
NicDate Played: 08/28/2011
One of the toughest courses I've ever played. The Bermuda greens had me fooled all morning long. I will play again for sure now that I know how to play this gem in the woods.
RegDate Played: 08/28/2011
Willingness of staff to accommodate our requests because of young junior golfers (my grandchildren - ages 6 & 9). This meant very much to me as this was the very early stages of their golfing experience. The course will present a unique challenge from tee to green and the junior tees made a fun, memorable time for the grandkids. Thanks, Lindsey and Brian, for great day of golf! We'll be back!
KevinDate Played: 08/23/2011
Bermuda greens in good shape, great value, first to tee off that morning. Several interesting dog legs ... Would definitely recommend trying it out.
MichaelDate Played: 08/23/2011
Excellent service and pace of play. One of the quickest rounds I have played in Myrtle Beach.
JoeDate Played: 08/23/2011
Very nice course. Played after heavy rain which affected the course. Still enjoyed the round.
TomDate Played: 08/23/2011
Best staff anywhere. I recently played this course with my 8-year-old son. The staff went out of their way to make sure that it would be a day he will remember. The course was in great shape and it was an awesome experience for both of us. I will play this course every time I visit Myrtle Beach.
SteveDate Played: 08/22/2011
Booked tee time online and found out when I arrived at the course that the greens had just been aerated so they were playable but not great. Several tee boxes had lots of sand on them also. I did like the layout and might try this course again but will call first to check conditions.
RichardDate Played: 08/21/2011
(Would like to have had) a layout of the course in a book form.
ThomasDate Played: 08/20/2011
Great place to play, thanks to Gary Player.
RickDate Played: 08/20/2011
No one told us the greens had been aerated the weekend before. Otherwise, course was in good shape.
RodneyDate Played: 08/19/2011
Greens were just aerated so that was a major disappointment. Other than that the course was nice. Only real problem was the number of houses that were close to the holes.
PhillipDate Played: 08/17/2011
The assistant pro was great!
DaltonDate Played: 08/15/2011
A challenging course that offers something for every type of golfer. The starters and rangers stress a fast, ready golf pace of play. I thought it was a bit excessive and seemed more like hurry up and wait. I would suggest going in the afternoon or after the morning flights for a more enjoyable and comfortable round of golf.
GregoryDate Played: 08/15/2011
Course was in excellent condition, all of the staff as always are so nice, friendly and knowledgeable. Fairways were great and free of alligators and snakes!
DwightDate Played: 08/14/2011
We liked the course, the drive was a bit far from where we were staying, but overall a good value.
PrestonDate Played: 08/13/2011
Greens were in excellent condition, as were the fairways.
JamesDate Played: 08/12/2011
Very nice condition.
MichaelDate Played: 08/11/2011
Love this course! I make sure I play it whenever company from Pennsylvania comes to visit us in Surfside! Hole #8 is great!
RichardDate Played: 08/11/2011
Liked the condition of the course, the design.
ChristopherDate Played: 08/09/2011
Did not timeout the crossover for split tee. Played behind a fivesome which the course knew about. Will not return!
BruceDate Played: 08/07/2011
Blackmoor was a good course in good condition and a good deal. Greens were is good condition in early August. I would play here again.
JohnDate Played: 08/03/2011
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Everything was in great condition considering the heat and dryness that MB had been going through. Went up on the first tee time and played the front in 1 1/2 hours. Slowed a little on the back but nothing to cause any problems. Neat layout from Gary Player.
AdrianDate Played: 07/30/2011
We played on Friday, July 22nd. The course was in excellent condition, especially considering the extreme heat and lack of rain recently. The course was billed as women-friendly and certainly lived up to that reputation. We will definitely play Blackmoor again.
DonaldDate Played: 07/26/2011
Nice course, very playable.
JamesDate Played: 07/24/2011
Great shape for the season. The greens where a little hard but that is the way it is in July.
MarkDate Played: 07/18/2011
There was a tourney going on when we played so a little delay but the course was fantastic.
MichaelDate Played: 07/18/2011
Course was in excellent condition, plush fairways, decent greens. What was terrible was the service during our play. We were constantly being rushed and told we were 10-15 minutes behind, even though there was no one directly behind us and there were groups right ahead of us. At the turn, we couldn't even finish eating a hot dog because we were told we only had 5 minutes inside and had to immediately begin play again. If I ever play golf in Myrtle Beach again, I will not be returning to this course. I like to have an enjoyable golf experience, and this was not one.
ToddDate Played: 07/16/2011
Very nice staff. Good overall course conditions. Ball placement very important at this course. Would definitely play again.
WayneDate Played: 07/16/2011
I thought the overall condition of the facility was awesome, would definitely play the course again. Would of been helpful to know the course layout a little better before playing.
SamDate Played: 07/14/2011
We liked the course and the design, particularly the driving choice on certain holes. We arrived a little early and the staff let us tee of early which was great. Greens were a little hard due to the heat but staff was great. It would be nice to get something from the grill when we finished our round but the grill was closed. We finished our round about 6 p.m. Overall we enjoyed the experience.
MichaelDate Played: 07/11/2011
I'm an amateur golfer and had a great time. The course was challenging but not overwhelming. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would love to play it again.
CharlesDate Played: 07/11/2011
RobertDate Played: 07/11/2011
Tight fairways made for smart club selection.
LeeDate Played: 07/11/2011
Blackmoor is one of the nicest courses I have played - the staff is so nice and friendly, the best staff I have ever seen at any golf course. Course in excellent shape.
BrianDate Played: 07/11/2011
Course was in good condition considering the drought. Greens a bit hard and rolled slow, but excellent service provided by all staff. Overall the course is shorter than most, but requires accurate placement of every shot.
JayDate Played: 07/07/2011
I would like to have known that the course was overbooked and it was going to take almost 5 hours to play. We would have gone someplace else. Late off the first tee and had to wait 30 minutes on number 10 to even tee off. Course ranger could not keep pace of play going. The group in front of us had a hole open in front of them after 2 holes. They never got caught up.
JoshuaDate Played: 07/05/2011
Great course, good staff.
TomDate Played: 07/04/2011
Course was in great shape. My wife and I would come back again.
MikeDate Played: 07/02/2011
When it is that hot, it would be nice to see the cart girl more than at the 2nd and 11th holes.
StacyDate Played: 06/29/2011
Great course and staff!

Course getting a little dry; still a very nice course.
RayDate Played: 06/21/2011
Course was in excellent condition, and the greens rolled great. Staff is very friendly and professional. My favorite course to play.
KennethDate Played: 06/15/2011

JackDate Played: 06/13/2011
Very nice course in excellent shape. Lots of doglegs.
RobertDate Played: 06/07/2011
Great pace of play, great staff and grill area very friendly. Course is fun and challenging.
ScottDate Played: 06/07/2011
Course in good shape. Like the layout, not extremely long for short hitter like me.
JohnDate Played: 06/07/2011
Nice course. Narrow fairways.

Our second time playing this course. It was in great shape and we always enjoy this course.
JohnDate Played: 05/30/2011
A lot of doglegs, definitely different.

Enjoyed golfing with your course marshal Jim.
MikeDate Played: 05/25/2011
PaulDate Played: 05/25/2011
Blackmoor is a course that's fun to play for all golfers.
DennisDate Played: 05/24/2011
Unique holes - split fairway, hidden green behind mound.
GaryDate Played: 05/23/2011
Great course. Lots of doglegs and even had one hole with a split fairway. Overall it was in great shape and we would play there again.
GerardDate Played: 05/21/2011
Should have senior prices and discounts for owners.
BillDate Played: 05/13/2011
Nice course. Course was booked solid and pace of play was excellent. Foursome had no complaints.
LarryDate Played: 05/11/2011
Playable and people are nice.
ScottDate Played: 05/11/2011
Course is in excellent shape, which is why it is one of our favorites. On-site personnel so friendly and make you feel welcome ... starters!! Only one dogleg left? LOL. Need a gold tee box on #8 split fairway ...
JamesDate Played: 05/11/2011
Course was in excellent shape.

It's just fun to play!
JohnDate Played: 05/07/2011
Very professional staff. Overall, the best total experience of the 4 courses we played.
LouDate Played: 05/06/2011
Golf carts were best I've seen.
GeoffreyDate Played: 05/03/2011
Great course with extremely true rolling greens. A pleasure to play.
MikeDate Played: 04/27/2011
Very interesting and fun to play. Staff was very friendly and noticeable on course. Would recommend for an earlier round for a vacation.
ScottDate Played: 04/25/2011
All around good course, specially for the money. My only complaint would be why the greens were top dressed this time of year, being it is M.B.'s prime season?
MarcusDate Played: 04/25/2011
Great golf and experience. Enjoyed sitting on the front porch after the round.
WilliamDate Played: 04/23/2011
Greens were slower than I am used to, but were in good shape. Course is beautiful and in good shape overall.
TomDate Played: 04/20/2011
The course was in great condition and tested your golfing ability.
RonDate Played: 04/20/2011
We had a cold wet week which affected conditions and playability dramatically.
DavidDate Played: 04/19/2011
In general very nice; cannot remember specifics.
RobertDate Played: 04/19/2011
Course was in excellent condition. Staff was very friendly.
VinceDate Played: 04/18/2011
Blackmoor was a very challenging course that did not rely on pure power and distance but more on course management and short game. My son and I loved it. You could feel the Gary Player influence. Would recommend to everyone. Prices inside the grill were very reasonable. Thanks.
JerryDate Played: 04/17/2011
I lost a Taylor Made Burner 7 Iron oversize.
DaleDate Played: 04/14/2011
The ONLY thing I did not like about this course was the fact it was a residential course, with houses in close proximity. I was not aware this was the case. I still would have played it, I was just surprised.
DanDate Played: 04/14/2011
Too challenging for me; if I knew I would have passed.
TimDate Played: 04/14/2011
We have played this course before and we will play it again.
RichardDate Played: 04/14/2011
We had an issue with the number of players booked due to an error by our booking agent. We had 5 and the course had only been booked for 4. I showed the manager my paperwork, He looked it over, agreed with me and let us play. He told me to stop by the pro shop when we were done and he would have the issue resolved by the time we got back. Sure enough everything was resolved and the staff was very pleasant about it. Everything on the course was in great shape and we ended up having a great time playing Blackmoor.
StephanDate Played: 04/14/2011
I enjoyed the layout of the course, along with how certain holes really made you think. The staff was also extremely friendly.
KipDate Played: 04/13/2011
Some of the greens were patchy.
StephenDate Played: 04/10/2011
GerryDate Played: 04/09/2011
Really like this course and would love to play it again. One thing unique about this course is the design and layout. Love to play the split fairways and blind shots.
JeffDate Played: 04/07/2011
Have now play 71 courses at the beach and this was in my top 5 courses; in great shape.
PaulDate Played: 04/05/2011
Greens were exceptional.
MarkDate Played: 04/05/2011
A lot of doglegs and a lot of gators.
RayDate Played: 04/04/2011
Course was in fantastic condition. Greens and fairways looked great and greens had a really good roll. It was cart path only and the pace of play was still right on time. The entire staff at this course is first-class.
NickDate Played: 03/31/2011
Playing the course a second time will be even a better experience.
BillDate Played: 03/30/2011
Blackmoor was great; not too hard and in good condition for the first of the season.
BobDate Played: 03/23/2011
Would have liked to know about the severe right-to-left slope of the fairway on the second hole we played. I'm not sure if it was #2 or #11.
ThomasDate Played: 03/22/2011
Wide open fairways.
RonaldDate Played: 03/21/2011
Good layout and in good condition.
EdwardDate Played: 03/18/2011
This was tied for second best course we played during our 7 days playing at 8 different courses.
TimDate Played: 03/14/2011
Enjoyed this course enough to play a replay 18 after our first 18.
DouglasDate Played: 03/13/2011
Played in early March. The grass was still pretty much dormant from the winter months. Loved the layout. Starter was super friendly and helpful. I'm going to play again in warmer months.
WorthenDate Played: 03/10/2011
Enjoyed the alligator.
GillDate Played: 03/08/2011
Excellent course, need to warn about live alligators?
DanielDate Played: 03/01/2011
Fun layout, good overall condition. Nice facility and they provide an excellent experience.
MikeDate Played: 02/24/2011
It was close to the airport for my getaway day but it is an inferior course.
GlennDate Played: 02/22/2011
Middle line of course, fun to play.
PhilipDate Played: 02/10/2011
I think this place would have been tremendous if not for the terrible weather. All things considered I had a great time; I just wish I could have played it in better weather.
ChuckDate Played: 02/03/2011
Nice course, not to many gimmick holes or unneeded long par 4's or 5's. Will play again.
JohnDate Played: 01/31/2011
Very nice staff but not a very exciting course.
DanielDate Played: 01/21/2011
JasonDate Played: 01/07/2011
I thought Blackmoor was a very fun course to play. Loved the double fairway hole and also the 18th.
RichardDate Played: 01/07/2011
I liked the layout; greens were not as good as the other courses we played.
JohnDate Played: 01/05/2011
Great course for our group of four couples.
RobertDate Played: 12/06/2010
Nice course, some challenging holes. Greens are very good.
TedDate Played: 11/29/2010
Played previously, nothing to add.
DonDate Played: 11/26/2010
Great classic golf course - a true test of ability without resorting to gimmicky design features. Staff was excellent.
BillDate Played: 11/23/2010
Greens were slow.
WilliamDate Played: 11/22/2010
Starter made every effort to get us back on the course for a reround. The starter was outstanding. He was very appreciative of us playing the course and gave us tons of tips to play the course.
PaulDate Played: 11/22/2010
Typical Gary Player design, too many sharp doglegs and blind shots. I only hit my driver on five holes. Conditions were very nice.
JoeDate Played: 11/17/2010
I like the challenge that Blackmoor provides with the variety of dogleg holes. I am a lefty, and the number of dogleg right holes made club selection and course management tough.
ClementDate Played: 11/16/2010
Everything was OK.
MichaelDate Played: 11/16/2010
Very nice course; would play again in future.
RichardDate Played: 11/14/2010
Good course with tight fairways. Makes a better day 2 or 3 course than day 1.
MarkDate Played: 11/12/2010
It was a good experience!
BruceDate Played: 11/12/2010
Cart paths only makes it tough to give a better grade.
JoeDate Played: 11/11/2010
Time in pro shop was pleasing. The attendants were very polite and cordial.
KennethDate Played: 11/10/2010
(Would like to have known prior to play the) replay cost and times.
BarryDate Played: 11/08/2010
Great shape. Fun to play.
ChuckDate Played: 11/07/2010
When a fairway is carts only, put up signage or hand out a printed sheet. Man's mere mortal brain cannot handle such detail for more than 1-2 swings of the club. A marshall yelled at us and said we were told. Okay. No need to yell at the kids. Just write down. Happy to cooperate.
WayneDate Played: 11/02/2010
Tees (were good).
RobertDate Played: 11/02/2010
Liked the speed of the greens.
TimDate Played: 10/29/2010

VinnieDate Played: 10/29/2010
Nice, nice course with great, helpful people!
DeliaDate Played: 10/27/2010
We love the layout of the course but have played this course a number of years ago when the course was in better shape.
Patricia/JohnDate Played: 10/27/2010
Starters were great, very helpful.
ChristophDate Played: 10/26/2010
(Liked the) course condition.
MarcDate Played: 10/24/2010
I like the layout and doglegs. It's possible to cut the corner on the hole 14 ... because you have more chance to reach the rough ... big rough and, advise to keep right on the hole 10 or get a book.
DarrellDate Played: 10/23/2010
Liked the layout, lots of excellent holes. We used the Internet and had the entire course layout by hole and our own GPS for yardage, we would play it again, had fun!!
NancyDate Played: 10/20/2010
Great course in great condition. Starters were friendly but members seemed to be allotted extra tolerance with regards to slow play. Pays to be a member at Blackmoor.
KevinDate Played: 10/19/2010
Excellent shape; friendly for women.
MarkDate Played: 10/19/2010
All the doglegs make it a very unique course. The starter did an nice job in providing some tips on how to play some of the holes but did go on a little long with his stories.
ChrisDate Played: 10/14/2010
Played on 09/12/10. Staff was great, and made you feel welcome which is a big deal for me, maybe not for others. Course was OK condition-wise, maybe I expected too much, but I still enjoyed the round very much. Liked the back nine better than the front nine ... some great holes (8,14,15,16 come to mind). Overall a nice experience.
CoachCDate Played: 10/12/2010
This is the second year that our fall group has played Blackmoor. Both years, we have had a good experience. The pro shop is OK, and the staff is helpful. The grill, although small, is adequate and nice. The course itself is a nice test of golf. Not too hard, not too easy. The greens are a little slow for my taste, but they rolled true. Grain-reading skills are a must here. The fairways were fine, although there were a few spots where you would have found grass to be sparse. Tee boxes were in good shape and well kept. Overall, this is a good course for the money. Unless your are extremely picky about what you play, you should be happy with this choice.
WilliamDate Played: 10/09/2010
Did not know you could not have personal cooler.
RogerDate Played: 10/03/2010
Good course, play affected by recent rains.
AllenDate Played: 09/29/2010
I like this course, have played 5 times, removal of some tress on #10 opened the hole up nicely and makes it more enjoyable.
TomDate Played: 09/29/2010
All 14 of my players loved their Blackmoor experience. We also played Willbrook which we loved also.
ClaudeDate Played: 09/28/2010
Interesting course. We really enjoyed it!
DavidDate Played: 09/28/2010
Love the split fairway on #8 - watch out! Greens fast and deceiving - very subtle. Play my best round here each year!
DonDate Played: 09/27/2010
Played 9/23/2010. A great course to play but was very disappointed in the starter and the ranger. Starter was a grump and rude. The ranger was also a grump and rude. Don't know why they acted the way they did! A fun course to play, but will move it way down our list of favorite courses because of the staff!
ThomasDate Played: 09/27/2010
One of our favorite courses. Good track and in good shape.
KenDate Played: 09/25/2010
Course was in good shape, greens were slower than expected.
RobertDate Played: 09/24/2010
CharlesDate Played: 09/20/2010
We play Blackmoor every year and by far the course was in the best condition ever. The staff their is the best. Always nice and accommodating.
StanleyDate Played: 09/17/2010
A challenging course that was still very playable for a high handicapper like me. The course was in excellent shape, and the staff was very friendly. By far the most enjoyable golf experience I have had in Myrtle Beach.
SteveDate Played: 09/14/2010
Course was in good shape and fun to play.
HenryDate Played: 08/30/2010
(Like the) layout. Had to use imagination on shots when not in middle of fairways.
GuyDate Played: 08/29/2010
Interesting layout, but without course knowledge it was difficult trying to determine what shot to hit off the tees. I think I would enjoy the course the second time around.
GordonDate Played: 08/24/2010
DavidDate Played: 08/16/2010
The course played great and was a challenge, but not over demanding for a medium-handicap golfer.
MattDate Played: 08/16/2010
Great place to play, fun layout, small challenging greens.
SidDate Played: 08/14/2010
Several unique dogleg holes made it somewhat unique. Starter suggestion to look at white tees for dogleg info was great.
JuanDate Played: 08/13/2010
Lindsay was a WONDERFUL ambassador for this course. She was very helpful!
JohnDate Played: 08/03/2010
Challenging course for an intermediate player such as myself. Enjoyed the numerous doglegs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Tee boxes were in great shape with helpful yardage markers. Course was very wet, but 3.5 inches of rain in two days will do that. I will be back next year and look forward to playing Blackmoor again.
JonDate Played: 08/01/2010
Everyone was friendly and helpful.
JasonDate Played: 07/27/2010
Staff was great. I really enjoyed the two tiered fairways. Doglegs made the course fun to play as well. My wife who is a high handicapper played with me on this day ... and she loved it. The course was very woman friendly. This was my second time at Blackmoor. Something that I cannot say for other Myrtle Beach courses. After playing several of the courses in the area over the last several years ... It's time for me to start going back to my favorites ... and Blackmoor is definitely one of them.
JamesDate Played: 07/23/2010
We enjoyed the course. However, the biting flies were almost intolerable. Everyone was extremely nice. The course was in good shape. Nothing stood out as great but still a nice track to play. I will be back!!!
KennethDate Played: 07/21/2010
Played the back tees. Doglegs were surprising and distances marked on tees would have helped. Par 3's were excellent and fun to play.
RichardDate Played: 07/19/2010
Good condition/very good golf pair up/love the variety of golf holes.
GwangDate Played: 07/17/2010
I don't recall anything particularly impressing on me of the course itself. But I did enjoy.
JamesDate Played: 07/14/2010
Great course for anyone to play. I enjoyed every hole on the course.
MarcDate Played: 07/12/2010
The quality of the round is the speed of greens - it was very good; experience was excellent.
MelindaDate Played: 07/10/2010
Liked the fact that it was women-friendly.
WardDate Played: 06/27/2010
This was our third time playing Blackmoor and it did not disappoint. Some tees were a little rough, but not sure what weather preceeded our visit. A small snafu with our tee time, but Matt and (entire) staff did right by us! Treated like royalty upon our return. Remains our must-play each visit.
MarkDate Played: 06/26/2010
Interesting features, rewards for risks.
RandyDate Played: 06/23/2010
The course was great. My younger son has a 7 hdcp., and this course really tested him with the doglegs and narrow fairways. The greens were fast and smooth, and the fairways were beautiful. This course will be on our top 5 when we come back next year.
RayDate Played: 06/22/2010
Play this course every year, and it gets better every year. The greens were punched the week before I played, and the putts rolled great. Greens rolled every bit as good as Caledonia. All the staff are first-class. Just a lot of neat looking holes & the entire course was in great condition.
SteveDate Played: 06/11/2010
I have played Blackmoor once before, more than 10 years ago, and was pleased to find not only that it had not deteriorated, but had matured and gotten better. The recent removal of lots of trees has made it made it less aggravating, but no less challenging. The course was in beautiful condition and the staff members we dealt with were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.
JackieDate Played: 06/08/2010
It was my first time to play at Blackmoor. We were told it was a Female Friendly Course ... it beat me up and I loved it!!!! Thanks.
JavierDate Played: 06/08/2010
A little wet from the previous night thunderstorms; had to stay on cart paths throughout play. Very well maintained course.
SteveDate Played: 06/07/2010
Course was in excellent condition, every hole - staff was friendly, pace of play dead on. Was totally pleased with one exception: on days as hot as when we played, there needs to be more (heck, SOME) water stations on the course.
TonyDate Played: 06/07/2010
Had to deal with rain, so cart path only was tough.
ThomasDate Played: 06/06/2010
Get rid of the horse flies and you guys would be great.
StevenDate Played: 06/02/2010
We love to play this course. Best condition in a long time. Unfortunately, pace of play on the back nine was slow. No marshalls on the course to maintain speed of play.
JamesDate Played: 06/01/2010
I like some of those mysterious holes where you have to search for the green.
GaryDate Played: 06/01/2010
A good value.
SteveDate Played: 06/01/2010
Good cousre in good shape, very nice staff.
BrettDate Played: 05/26/2010
The layout is OK, nothing spectacular. The par 4 on the back 9 with the split fairway is by far the best hole on the course. Perfect course for the second round of the day. Please fog the course because we were attacked violently by black flies on the back 9.
JimmyDate Played: 05/25/2010
(Liked the) gator I saw on 9th tee, several different types of holes.
CharlesDate Played: 05/24/2010
All in all my experience was very nice. i hope to play there again.

JudyDate Played: 05/16/2010
Appreciated the book we were given that showed distances on each hole and how it played.
KevinDate Played: 05/14/2010
Course was in great shape! Met some great people that were very helpful. Would play this course again anytime.
MariaDate Played: 05/12/2010

DenisDate Played: 05/12/2010
Been there, will not go back - not my kind of golf course.
LouDate Played: 05/07/2010
Overall very good, will play next year for sure!
PaulDate Played: 05/06/2010
Course seems tired compared with the first time I played it several years ago.
ChrisDate Played: 05/05/2010
Won't go back. 6 hour round was ridiculous ... no bad weather to even use as an excuse.
RobDate Played: 05/05/2010
(I liked the) $1.75 beer special.
JeffDate Played: 05/04/2010
One of the better conditioned courses we played all week.
ScottDate Played: 05/03/2010

RickDate Played: 04/28/2010
Very tough greens.
DaleDate Played: 04/27/2010
No logo balls AGAIN! Ladies working grill gave me a sour look when I asked for a cup of ice. I would have paid for it and could do w/out the sour look I got. Attd. at drop (girl) in too big a hurry. Rushed us as soon as we arrived and we were early.
JamesDate Played: 04/26/2010
Backmoor was the worst course I played (on this trip); in need of renovation.
JoshDate Played: 04/23/2010
Played many times prior. Very friendly staff. Great barbecue sandwich at the turn. Wonderful course. Consistently one of our favorites.
ChuckDate Played: 04/22/2010
I played good starter was great
WilliamDate Played: 04/22/2010
Played this course 20 years ago and had memories of having difficulty reaching the corners of all the doglegs. Didn't have that problem this time!
TobyDate Played: 04/21/2010
Always a favorite stop for our group.
AlanDate Played: 04/20/2010
Liked the traditional layout and the greens.
KeithDate Played: 04/19/2010
Blackmoor is one of our favorite courses in Myrtle Beach. It is very well kept and has a peacefulness to it. The finishing hole is scenic and challenging. A great risk and reward hole (I believe 12 or 13) is dogleg right, par 4. A good drive make it approachable for a good birdie chance but a poor drive can make it very tough.
HansDate Played: 04/19/2010
Our foursome had different feelings regarding all the dog legs. although we had an 8 a.m. tee time and it was really busy, things were handled well to get us going. The staff was great. Really a good experience!
MichaelDate Played: 04/18/2010
LoriDate Played: 04/16/2010
I like a challenge - dog legs are great. Water a little too challenging at times. **** a friend who has golfed down at Myrtle told me that there are alligators. I did see one up on the shore - I think that there should be more alerts. But as far as the course is concerned the greens were in excellent condition.
GeorgeDate Played: 04/10/2010
Need GPS on carts! Why charge 4 dollars for a stupid course book if you don't have GPS? It's either one or the other. Kind of cheap!
DonDate Played: 04/06/2010
Wet, canceled AM tee time, but accommodated us in PM.
MikeDate Played: 04/03/2010
Good layout and play was good; greens could have been faster.
LanceDate Played: 04/02/2010
Some interesting, tricky holes. Fun to play in general, and the price is certainly right. Only problem was that the starter seemed confused and unsure about his role. Had to reassign a group of three back to their original group on #10 after telling them they would have to start on #1. We were to be paired up, but then he sent us out as a twosome.
HankDate Played: 04/01/2010
Conditions were wet in some areas otherwise everything was excellent.
JamesDate Played: 03/30/2010
Jim the starter was terrific. It's great to meet someone who really loves his job and makes sure visitors like us get off to such a positive start.
PaulDate Played: 03/30/2010
Good playable course. Good condition. I know we are in peak season but almost too pricey.
PaulDate Played: 03/23/2010
Great place. Will come again.
JerryDate Played: 03/21/2010
The hole layout provided a variety of shots and a variety of challenges. Personnel were outstanding, so very friendly. It was a great experience.
ChristinaDate Played: 03/19/2010
Extent of lumber activity!
RyanDate Played: 03/19/2010
Looks like they have cut many trees down to make the course more player friendly, marshals kept a good pace going. The greens were the best I saw all week

We've played Blackmoor every year for the last 18 to 20 yrs. It's in the best shape ever.

Prices in the pro shop were a bit higher than expected.
GerryDate Played: 03/08/2010
Excellent, traditional golf course. Very appealing to the eye. Excellent greens.
PatrickDate Played: 03/08/2010
We played Blackmoor two days after a heavy rain and played cart paths only. We have a member of our foursome that has Parkinson's Disease and when we asked for a special flag for him to go on the course, we were told absolutely not. The fairways were rather wet making it that much more difficult to play. Not very satisfied.
JackDate Played: 03/07/2010
PatDate Played: 03/06/2010
Blackmoor is a good course for golfers of our ability (15-19 hdcp.).
TomDate Played: 03/03/2010
Starter told us that if we stopped play on the 5th hole (due to heavy rain) that we would receive 18 hole re-play. Pro shop would only honor a 9 hole re-play. We felt as a group that if the starter told us 18 hole re-play they should have honored.
WilliamDate Played: 03/02/2010
A lot of doglegs!
JeffreyDate Played: 02/28/2010
Liked the many doglegs. Lots of interesting holes. One suggestion would be a restroom shack midway through front and back nines. Felt like I was about to explode by the end of each nine.
RandyDate Played: 02/24/2010

DickDate Played: 02/19/2010
Wet and cart paths only - should receive discount on carts - this applies to all five courses we played.
DennisDate Played: 02/16/2010

RobertDate Played: 02/16/2010
Cutting of trees on course was somewhat distracting.
WoonDate Played: 02/11/2010
It is a fair course.
BobDate Played: 02/05/2010
Lots of tree removal, noisy due to chainsaws and tractors, mushy fairways ... would have liked to have known about re-vamping ... 1st time playing the course ... will not play again until conditions improve.
GlennDate Played: 02/04/2010
It rained for 18 holes. Fairways were sloppy.
HosoonDate Played: 01/26/2010

Superior Service,from bag drop to Pro Shop to TeesPlayed with members who showed me the course.Length of Course is perfect for my game.Lee Horton even recommended a great place to dine out. Other members were very helpful in showing the course. Just a Great Place to be. Will be playing there again in Feb 2010 with my brother.
JohnDate Played: 12/10/2009
Great golf course and good weather.
KenDate Played: 12/08/2009
Despite being relatively quiet, Blackmoor decided not to double tee (1st & 10th) which resulted in a long wait at the 1st until the short early holes cleared. Whilst a lovely layout, the inability of this course to drain late in the year, hence limiting carts to paths, is undesirable and leads to long walks and a slow round.
DennisDate Played: 12/08/2009
This was my first time in Myrtle Beach so I was pleased with the golf facilities.
FrankDate Played: 12/02/2009
A yardage book would be valuable to players given the number of blind holes and unique layout. Great course and will definitely be coming back to play it again.
DougDate Played: 12/01/2009
Good start off course because it does not demand you be long off the tee. It is a shot makers course of the first magnitude. Keeping it in the short grass is at a premium. Knowing where the sun sets is also a must. I have played Blackmoor several times and its design gets better with each passing year.
TyDate Played: 12/01/2009
Overall very enjoyable time
RobertDate Played: 11/29/2009
DavidDate Played: 11/29/2009
Beautiful playing conditions for this time of year. There were a lot of leaves on the fairways and greens, but with the wind that was blowing, that was to be expected.
JimDate Played: 11/24/2009
Rained most of the day. Course was in good shape.
LucDate Played: 11/24/2009
Fairways were wet. Cart path only with carts. That makes the game more challenging but nonetheless still very enjoyable. It would be nice if there were more restrooms along the course.
Rene'Date Played: 11/16/2009

First day it quit raining - cart path only golf. Golf course was beautiful and would love to play it again when not as soggy.
MarkDate Played: 10/28/2009
Great layout, prefer Bent greens.
RockyDate Played: 10/28/2009
Overseeding, carts not allowed on fairways. We have 12 members of our 24 over the age of 60, very hard for them on wet fairways where one can't drive the cart.

ChrisDate Played: 10/27/2009

KevinDate Played: 10/27/2009
The course was a great experience. It's nice to have a choice at a hole(8th). Will definitely play the course again.
ChrisDate Played: 10/27/2009
Great track. A little mud on the greens though...
HansDate Played: 10/26/2009
Very wet due to the rain earlier, cart path only did not enjoy that fact.
RobDate Played: 10/21/2009
Unfortunately we had to play our round in the rain which took the fun out of playing. The course was wet, ball would plug in the wherever it would land. I'm sure that if we had played on a dry summer day our experience would have been much more enjoyable.
AlbertDate Played: 10/19/2009
Always a good time at Blackmoor. The people are professional. Just as TPC we were forced to play cart path only due to the recent heavy rains which made some fairways in poor condition. When we are playing for that much money I would prefer to drive out to my ball.
KeithDate Played: 10/19/2009
Fine course and the doglegs are fun to play.
KenDate Played: 10/14/2009
Excellent course, price made the choice very easy. Will definitly play here again. Course attendant we met up with on several holes was very pleasant and helped with blind tee shots. Gave good advice for other holes. very friendly people
MaxDate Played: 10/10/2009
Great golf. Really appreciated them letting us play a fivesome, and we did our best to not hold up anybody behind us. In fact we were waiting on the group ahead of us on our first nine.

Wonderful traditional golf course. Design emphasizes shot making and accuracy. Challenging but not demoralizing for average golfer.

CliffDate Played: 09/22/2009
It was smooth and enjoyable.
TimDate Played: 09/19/2009
OK course - I think it needed more markers in the fairway as most other courses have. It took time to determine yardages. A GPS/SkyCaddy would be recommended.
JamesDate Played: 09/18/2009
Too many extreme doglegs.
ThomasDate Played: 09/08/2009
Course was in excellent condition. Rough was a little too high, difficult getting out of it for average golfers.
PaulDate Played: 09/07/2009
I enjoyed Blackmoor. There were a couple of holes (don't remember the #'s) where there was a blind second shot (on a par 5) that if you didn't lay up you went into a swampy grassy area, the problem was it was marked on the card.
EdwardDate Played: 09/02/2009
it had rained. not a fan of cart path only. people i played with were trying to teach their son had to play golf @ 7:30 in the morning. WRONG time to do that.
DanielDate Played: 09/02/2009
Green speed was inconsistent from hole to hole.
ShannonDate Played: 08/20/2009
It was a very nice course with interesting holes. I liked that it wasn't overly difficult and a high handicapper can enjoy playing it and play well - which I didn't, but I enjoyed the round nonetheless.
DannyDate Played: 08/18/2009
Excellent layout. Sand traps were all washed out with little or no sand in them.
DonaldDate Played: 08/12/2009
Yardage markers hard to find (GPS in carts needed).
DanielDate Played: 08/07/2009
Great hospitality from pro shop staff. Loved the par 4 option to either drive on the left side or take a risk and drive on the right side. Wish the Black Knight had designed other courses in Myrtle Beach as I loved the course design.
BobDate Played: 08/04/2009
The last time I played Blackmoor was shortly after the course opened. I truly was suprised how well it has matured over the years. My only complaint ... paths only for that day. Love those doglegs and the greens putted as true as any bermuda I've ever seen. The staff was most friendly of any course on the Strand! Great return to nostalgia!
BobDate Played: 08/03/2009
Blackmoor deserves a re-look by golfers. The staff was top-notch (great improvement!); the fairways were in good condition; and the greens putted true.
DonDate Played: 08/02/2009
Worst course of the three we played on this trip. Very poor design/layout, with too many severe doglegs and one blind approach shot. Will not play this course again.
TimothyDate Played: 07/28/2009
This golf experience was absolute first-class. The attendant at the pro shop was very informative, the gentleman at the bag drop was very friendly and the starter was helpful in explaining the course to a group of first-time players of this course. Condition of the course was just perfect. My family has been staying in Myrtle since 1978, this was my 5th year of golfing down here and we will now play Blackmoor each and every year. Thank you so much and keep up the great first-class work!
JeremyDate Played: 07/21/2009
Very nice course ... good condition.
JohnDate Played: 07/20/2009
The routing was great, there was more than one option off the tee which makes it fun. We had some rain the night before, making the greens very receptive, nothing rolled off. It was hot and muggy (imagine that, hot and muggy in July at Myrtle Beach), beside the cart girl, the rangers checked on us 3 times to make sure we were drinking and had plenty of water. Finding yardage markers was a challenge sometimes, this did slow us a bit in places. The staff were all wonderful, the greens true, and the holes unique. I'll be back.
AnthonyDate Played: 07/20/2009
Had a great round. Got put with a real poor sport. He was freaking out for the whole 9 holes he stayed for. Not fun for my son.

DaveDate Played: 07/10/2009
Was initially hesitant to play Blackmoor because of reports on conditions but was tremendously impressed. Best greens we played this trip and the service was fantastic.
EricDate Played: 07/10/2009
Several people mentioned the greens weren't in great shape but I thought they were better than the ones we played at the day before at Waterway Hills. We breezed through the first 9 (back 9) in less than 2 hrs. but were then slowed when we caught up with the first wave of groups that were starting on the front 9.
KeithDate Played: 07/08/2009
I can see how it could be a fun course, but the tees and greens were in terrible shape. Pro Matt Daly very helpful.
MattDate Played: 07/01/2009
From the bag drop attendant to the course starter, the service was excellent. They made my twin boys feel special and they went above and beyond at every turn. The golf was a great value and the course was not full, which made for an enjoyable round. Thanks, Blackmoor!
KenDate Played: 06/26/2009
greens were really bad - plugging diseased spots was not a good idea. also, the apron around the green was dead on most holes. no attention to the details either (i.e. steps in disrepair on some tees
ThomasDate Played: 06/24/2009
Very interesting and fun course. Tees and greens had just ben aerated which was a downer, but staff went out of their way to make up for it as best they could. The two-fairway hole (8) was great!
TomDate Played: 06/17/2009
Greens were in poor shape due to recent aeration, but I was contacted via phone 2 weeks ahead of date of play and offered alternatives. I chose to stay at Blackmoor and enjoyed my round. Pro shop staff, including intern could not have been nicer.

NicholasDate Played: 02/23/2009
Heavy rain so could not give appropriate rating. You starter stopped us at the turn and said we played too fast. We would have to wait, this should have been explained by the person taking the money before we went out.

Commented Feb. 11, 2009: My wife and I played this course on 2/11/09. The greens weren't in very good shape yet but it is early in the year. I thought the course was a little short but fair. A little pricey for what the course is, I would probably look for a better deal.

<i>Dec. 15, 2008: A person in our group hit an errant shot breaking a window. The house owner was belligerant, rude and threatened to have the police come to the course and arrest the person. The golf shop sent the ranger out and pertinent information was provided for restitution. The staff was cooperative and understanding despite the behavior of the house owner.</i> <p>The home owner you encountered does not represent all of the home owners at Blackmoor. Not all of us home owners are that way (as long as you fix the problem). As a homeowner on the course, I understand the risk of owning a home on a golf course. Broken windows and dented gutters come with the territory, as long as the golfer understands he or she is responsible for their errant shots. Sorry you had a bad experience ...

It appears that the management is in the process of adding much needed drainage and also installing additional irrigation around the greens. On a lighter note, they have some of the best Bloody Marys around!
