Crow Creek Golf Club
Crow Creek Golf Club is rated among the Top 50 golf courses in North Carolina by NC Magazine and was nominated by Golf Digest as a candidate for America’s top new public courses. Crow Creek features an artistic layout of lengthy holes with water and vast bunkers, undulating L-93 bentgrass greens, manicured Tifsport bermuda fairways, and a clubhouse that is fashionably designed for the golfer that enjoys an atmosphere of chic hospitality. Crow Creek fulfills every bit of its 4-star status (Golf Digest “Places to Play”). Straddling the NC/SC border, this is the course that golfers return to every year for its close proximity to Myrtle Beach, comprehensive course features, and tranquil environment that every golfer finds irresistible.
Crow Creek’s signature hole is #7, the colossal Par 5, yielding 574 yards. This hole has water running along both sides of its narrow fairway. Additionally, sand bunkers are present midway through the hole, presenting an additional challenge to reach the green for par. This is the hole that you want to maximize your distance, so don’t be afraid to crush your driver. Conversely, if you don’t care for the challenge of the lengthy #7, you will love Crow’s Creek #13 on the back side. This 169-yard, charming par 3 gives the golfer time to wipe the sweat of their brow and enjoy pristine nature of the land. Although water is present on this hole, most golfers find it easy to play and easy to birdie.

Love this course. Great condition. Pace of play was good, with a ranger keeping things moving.
NEALDate Played: 04/24/2019
Course was in excellent condition however the course was overbooked 3 groups on every holes! Too much wait time and no place to go course just Over booked by staff and no management of starter on times did not help the situation. Love the conditions but unless staff controls tee times better its going to be a long day at this track
BillyDate Played: 03/11/2019
Great track played my best round ever. Fairways were in great shape, greens were a little slow but true. This was the first time we played this course in over 30years we all agreed to add Crow Creek to our play again list.

Always a pleasure from bag drop on. Course is in front of you with few obstacles along the way. Greens are fun to play, they roll true and breaks doable.
JongDate Played: 04/26/2018
Course was in great shape. Greens were very firm so it was difficult to hold them on approach shots or chips. Course was in great shape. Lots of undulations and level changes on the the greens. Greens were average speed becasue they had not cut them down to their final cut but still rolled very nice. Tee box and fairways were also in great shape. Would definitely play here again.
TeddyDate Played: 02/27/2017
Played course 2/24/17. What a goat trail. Greens rough as a gravel parking lot. There was no green in fairways only dormant grass. Was told by employees the ownership was not spending any money until summer when course would be closed for 3 to 4 months for a make over. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!
DaveDate Played: 10/07/2016
The greens were in terrible shape. A mixture of bentgrass and Bermuda, they were very bumpy, with patches of sand in the middle and around the edges. They were slower than any we played anywhere. The fairways appeared to be coming back from disease or something, and although they played all right, there were still places with no grass. Course could be an excellent place to play, but not worth the money right now.
ChadDate Played: 10/05/2016
Would have liked to know that they are having problems with their greens and that they are supposed to replace them prior to the next golf season. All in all our foursome enjoys playing Crow Creek.
JimDate Played: 07/17/2016
Have played this course before and it's a great layout with excellent greens. I love the course. However the current conditions are horrendous! The fairways are almost completely ruined with at least 5/6 completely unplayable. The greens are thankfully Ok. This course should really be closed and allowed to recover it's way to nice a track to be played on right now. I fully understand the management wants to have the course open earning money but they're doing a disservice to a very good golf course right now.
CherylDate Played: 05/04/2016
Staff in grill were great, pro shop had nice specials....greens could have been in better shape
KenDate Played: 03/20/2016
Crow Creek, an excellent golf course. Jack in the pro shop, was very helpful, and friendly. The food in the restaurant, was great too. The greens, and fairways, are in good shape. The greens were, fast and rolled true. Visually, the golf course, is fair, bunkered well, in good shape. For a course in Myrtle, I really liked, the bent greens. Would definetely play again.
MikeDate Played: 10/31/2015
The pro shop reception was great. The guy raved about the course and was sorry that it was cart path only, he said that they overseeded, and that was the reason. Strange, as every other course is cart path because of all the rain. The course layout is nice. but, the tee blocks and fairways were in terrible shape, all burnt up. Frankly not the cost. The green were just ok, short, but fairly fast. There are much better courses, one is River Hills.

StompDate Played: 08/11/2015
Decent layout, but the greens SUCK!
JoeDate Played: 07/23/2015
This is a fair but challenging course with plenty water and sand. Conditions were good with the exception of the greens.
JohnDate Played: 07/09/2015
Green were punched some weeks earlier and have not recovered yet. Fairways have bare spots in prime locations. Need to work to improve fairway issue.
ScottDate Played: 07/07/2015
The staff was very friendly. The course lay out overall was nice but the greens were way to slow. Needed to be cut badly. And the fairway bunkers did not have any sand in them. I'm sure there is the excuse that they got rain but so did all the other courses I played and they had sand in the bunkers. If you don't want to maintain your bunkers then don't have them. Also our pace was great. No one behind us or in front of us the 1st 9. Then as we made the turn two groups were waiting for us to hit on 10. Why start them on the back. There was no one teeing off on one at the time.
TerryDate Played: 06/30/2015
Staff was outstanding, would have liked to know if my junior golfer was playing free prior to teeing off. I currently still don't know that we were reimbursed for our junior golfer. Have not gotten a revised receipt as we were instructed to receive.
SweeDate Played: 05/10/2015
Very well maintained course all around. What makes it stands out from the rest I played is that the real estate is set back far enough to give the course an openness that is lacking in the others. I rate Crow Creek as the best I played in Myrtle beach.
FrankDate Played: 04/25/2015
Crow Creek, over the years, has been our favorite course. But the fairways this year were not well mowed and cleaned up. There were rows of large clumps of mowed grass on just about every fairway.
HaroldDate Played: 04/10/2015
Holes were diverse and appropriately challenging from respective tees. The course was aesthetically pleasing from tee to green. Staff were friendly and accommodating throughout the experience.
ErnestDate Played: 04/06/2015
Everything was great for early spring. It was a complete experience. Liked the course and will play it again.

The staff were polite and helpful, the greens were in poor condition but still rolled true.

Bunkers were being repaired as we were playing and some were in need of new sand; greens were in rough shape.
MikeDate Played: 07/24/2014
This is a top notch golf course. room to get by with a few stray shots. good pace of play. played crows creek on june 30th 2014

Very enjoyable course. It was in great shape for March and I would recommend it to any level of golfer.
JeffDate Played: 03/07/2014
Favorite course in the Myrtle Beach / NC state line area golf courses.
TomDate Played: 11/21/2013
Fairways too wet-----traps too wet when playing early, like hitting off clay.
CodeyDate Played: 10/18/2013
Crow Creek is the total package of great golf and courtesy from the staff. The course is always in great shape and the layout is fun and challenging.
JimDate Played: 10/14/2013
DonaldDate Played: 09/30/2013
Very Nice Course. Greens putted excellent and fairways in very nice shape. Nice course for Ladies. Only complaint was pace of play on a Saturday afternoon was very slow(close to 5 hours) Would definitely play again.
DwainDate Played: 08/26/2013
With all the rain the course was very wet, with bunkers and fairways still holding significant water. Aside from wetness impacting all area courses, the round was very enjoyable and we will definitely add it to our future play list. Great layout.
RaefordDate Played: 07/09/2013
Course in fantastic shape just too wet and rainy.

RobertDate Played: 03/20/2013
WilsonDate Played: 03/20/2013
Just got back from a Myrtle Beach golf trip and Crow Creek was by far the nicest course we played while we were down there. Savannah Bruff at the bar was fantastic and friendly, she is awesome. I would highly recommend Crow Creek.
CraigDate Played: 03/13/2013
Course was in very nice condition, layout is fair and not tricked up. Greens are very good. People at the grill are great and a lot of fun.
EddieDate Played: 03/11/2013
Treat people the way they should be treated. Made the group feel appreciated. They always have a great course with superior service. Please pass this on to the course personnel.
PeterDate Played: 02/20/2013
We schedule Crow Creek every year..... Our FAVORITE Played Litchfield CC also but survey ended. Nice course
GordonDate Played: 01/23/2013
Every course I played was excellent. The staff was excellent and very professional. Will return next January for a week.
JimDate Played: 12/01/2012
I have played this course several times. It is always a favorite of our group and is always in good condition.
LeonDate Played: 11/14/2012
Great newer course at a reasonable price. Well maintained and pleasing to look at. Bunkers are very consistent and numerous. Pick the right tees to make it a fun or expect a long day.
JohnDate Played: 11/13/2012
Bad weather so played by myself. It was very windy and tee boxes were back so played very long. Greens were fast and very contoured which made putting a challenge. I liked the course and would play again. Cart path only made for a lot of walking.
RichDate Played: 10/30/2012
Tee boxes were burnt up, some fairways were in poor shape, greens were below par with damaged areas, pace of play 5 hours ... not good.
RyanDate Played: 10/10/2012
Wait staff / Cart girl were very friendly. The food was tasty. The course was in great shape, except for some greens which were lacking grass in some spots (spotty). But all in all, will definitely consider returning.
TimDate Played: 09/06/2012
I would have liked to know that the course was so wet. Made course conditions difficult.
RayDate Played: 08/23/2012
Very, very nice course, great layout no two holes look alike. Two of the nicest par 3's (8 & 13). Couple of the fairways were aerated that morning, bunker sand a little deeper than most MB courses, greens a little spotty (might be time to change away from Bent). Great course for mid to high handicappers and very woman-friendly.
GaryDate Played: 08/08/2012
Played Saturday 8/4, had a group of 24 in which we were running behind from playing that morning somewhere else. Called course and they worked with us to allow for later start, never any hassles. Staff was great, person working in snack/grill/bar was great but was only one back there so took a while to get an order placed. Course wise we were happy with exception of greens. There were quite a few greens where bermuda grass was growing in with the bent so greens did not roll as well as normal good bent grass greens would and they were pretty slow as well. Overall experience was average.
MattDate Played: 07/31/2012
Nice track, staff was friendly. Very fun to play for low and high handicappers, very fair, course is in great shape.
JoshDate Played: 07/29/2012
For the money I paid I was expecting a little more. The front nine I liked the layout better. Less houses when I go golfing I like to be in the country.
BrianDate Played: 07/24/2012
The course was in excellent shape. The greens were fast, smooth and receptive. Fairways and tees were great. Pace of play was good. No complaints on the golf side for Crow Creek. Grill was very slow and food average.
DavidDate Played: 07/21/2012
A few greens were starting to get a little rough and someone kept dragging their spikes a few groups in front of us. Other than that, this place is excellent.
CindyDate Played: 07/14/2012
Everything is perfect. The bent grass greens are the best on the beach. The fairways are immaculate. If you think this course is easy, try moving back a tee box or two.
K.Date Played: 07/11/2012
One of the least golfer-friendly places I have ever been. The staff is not very friendly, you are not allowed to take coolers, nothing but fried food in the grill. The atmosphere is just stiff. The course is not challenging in the least.
ScottDate Played: 07/03/2012
Best course I have ever played. Everything was in tip-top shape.
NormanDate Played: 06/16/2012
They just worked on the greens.
RobertDate Played: 06/03/2012
Well maintained, friendly personnel. Tourist friendly, if you can't score low here ... Greens are slow.

This course was in very good shape. We would play it again. Will tell other friends to play.
NickDate Played: 04/17/2012
Course is very nice. Good layout and fair to most handicaps. Would highly recommend Crow Creek.
TomDate Played: 04/03/2012
Great warm-up course. Open & forgiving with beautiful fairways and immaculate greens (rolled about a 9.5). Everyone was very nice. Played a leisurely 4-hour round with no one in front of us an no one pushing. The free hotdog & 2 draft beers weren't bad, either. Highly recommended.
GeorgeDate Played: 03/13/2012
Great course. Greens and fairways were outstanding. Attentive staff, beautiful course.
PaulDate Played: 02/28/2012
Overall high-class course.

Thought the course was great and no issues. Very pleased.
JohnDate Played: 11/28/2011
It was very wet which made it long, but we enjoyed playing and the challenges.
SurojitDate Played: 11/20/2011
Played Crow Creek on Friday, Nov 10, 2011. The course was one soggy mess. Almost every fairway were sloppy and wet. We were told they had overseeded. I played the course several times before and the course was always wet. Not sure why they need to water that much. Me and my friends do not plan to play here again!
ColinDate Played: 11/14/2011
Excellent, but it was so wet because of overseeding that it did somewhat spoil the experience. The free lunch was much appreciated. Will come again.
TimothyDate Played: 11/14/2011
Will be returning again next spring. Loved the course, especially the paved cart paths. Unfortunately, they had recently overseeded so we had to play cart path only but it was still very enjoyable.
KenDate Played: 10/12/2011
DennisDate Played: 10/11/2011
Good course to warm up. Not too difficult. Course was well maintained. Good, hardworking staff. Lunch included was a plus.
TomDate Played: 09/19/2011
Played 9/19/11; course was in great shape. My wife and I played and the starter let us go off early in front of a foursome. The course was in perfect shape from tee to green! The employees were first-class! We will definitely play here again.
RobDate Played: 08/25/2011
Challenging design with some great holes. Course was in very good shape. Greens had some Bermuda grass that had gotten a little out of control but they rolled true. Tee boxes and fairways were in excellent shape. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
BigDate Played: 08/24/2011
Fun course. If you are planning a trip down, you won't be sorry if you add this course to your playlist. I live in Brunswick County, N.C. and have the option of playing over 100 courses in the area, and I play Crow Creek quite often.
RichardDate Played: 08/14/2011
Good course - great shape. Well worth the money.
ShawnDate Played: 07/26/2011
Played Crow Creek on July 21st. The course was in excellent condition. Well irrigated compared to other courses in the area.
BrianDate Played: 07/04/2011
The course is in great shape. Tees, greens, fairways and traps were all in top condition. Good course for all handicap levels if you choose the correct tees. The par 5's are long from the Blues and the 4's are set up to allow you multiple club selections from the tees. Good Par 3's, with wide range of distances, making you play anything from a 9 to a hybrid, depending on the hole and wind. If you have the chance, put it in your package rotation.
RichardDate Played: 06/22/2011
Course was a great course to play.
PaulDate Played: 05/20/2011
Excellent golf course, top notch, too bad its all the ways up in NC.

Fairways were excellent. Lots of holes were similar.
JerryDate Played: 03/20/2011
Played here on 3/13/2011. Always has been in excellent condition and this year was no exception. Greens are fast and roll good.
TomDate Played: 03/15/2011
Played 3-9-11. Course was in good shape, people were friendly and we got to do a replay. Found the course a good fit for mid to high hdcps. Will return.
ClaytonDate Played: 03/06/2011
Overall experience was fun. Had been there before. Overseeding for winter was very good, tees needed cut, but other than that, all was good. Greens even held well for winter golf.
MichaelDate Played: 02/21/2011
Really enjoyed the layout and plan to play again. The attendants were a little bit rude but that was probably because they were busy. We arrived more than an hour before our tee time and had planned to hit the range. Check-in took longer than expected, and we weren't given a cart to go to the range even though there were several carts parked at the clubhouse. Someone shuttled us over and said they'd be back to pick us up. In 10 minutes they came back to get us, and I hadn't finished warming up. I had to leave almost half of my balls there. As you know, the range is located near the first tee. When we came back, someone else was hitting the balls that I had paid for. I was disappointed that although there were plenty of carts available, we weren't allowed to use one to go to the range. I take my game seriously (4.1 hdcp.) and I need the time to warm up before a round. I couldn't understand the need to rush us around. But once we were on the course I had forgotten all about our problem. It is a beautiful course, and we do plan on playing there again.
AndyDate Played: 02/11/2011
CC has always been a favorite of my group. Finally got to play in good weather. Course has always been in great condition for late January.
JustinDate Played: 02/09/2011
Best course by far of the three we played. Course had been well manicured. The only downfall to this day was that we were unable to get any food from the snack bar area because they had sent them home because of the weather conditions predicted for the day. But I think if you are letting people play the course there should be someone who can access the snack bar for at least a pack of crackers and a drink. This won't take away from my experience at Crow Creek as this is my third time playing the course and the conditions are always second to none.
DavidDate Played: 11/25/2010
The fairways were overseeded and it was cart paths only. However the back nine was extremely wet, like a swamp.
TomDate Played: 10/26/2010
We play this course on many occasions and we go back because it is such a great experience.
DavidDate Played: 10/19/2010
Very nice, well-manicured course. Layout is fine and probably a course I would play often if I lived in the area. Good value for money with a friendly country club atmosphere.
RonDate Played: 10/16/2010
Don't know what the reviewer below me was seeing, the greens are in terrible shape. They suffered some kind of trauma this summer, and we found them to be lumpy and not cut or rolled in days by the looks of them. Made the putting almost futile. Would avoid this course 'til next spring, maybe the greens will be reseeded by then.
SteenDate Played: 08/25/2010
Played on August 25th. Was greeted by a very friendly staff. We were the first off so no problem with pace of play. Good course with challenging holes and more water than I had imagined. Par 3's were a good challenge and looking good and a bit intimidating although very playable. The greens had a couple of spots with bermuda grass creeping on in spots, but in general rolled very nice and with good speed. Fairways didn't roll much, but were in great shape. All in all a very nice golfing experience, with good conditions and a fair challenge. Will play again.
ClintDate Played: 08/21/2010
Course brought fair play to the average golfer. Greens in poor condition.
MikeDate Played: 05/06/2010
Good course to start the trip on, very narrow fairways in parts, made fore a more challenge on the drive.
RickDate Played: 04/20/2010
Great deal, free sandwich and 2 drafts made for a very enjoyable after round!
LarryDate Played: 04/15/2010
Truly a first-class experience all the way around. Staff was friendly, course was in immaculate condition with some of the best fairways I have ever played upon, greens rolled true with appropriate speed for amount of slope, course layout is extremely fair allowing good shots to be rewarded and visually allows golfer to see shot shape required. Pace of play was slightly slow due to a large group immediately before tee time, but nothing to be overly concerned about. Would absolutely return and looking forward to doing so in the near future.
NealDate Played: 04/14/2010
Played course in April; awesome course - best that I have played in the Myrtle Beach area in a long time. Fairways great, greens rolled true, just a beautiful layout. Course crowded, but I can see why - this is a gem and a must-play for anyone visiting the area!
RobertDate Played: 04/03/2010
Great course and it was in awesome condition. We are planning to go back this summer and play again.
DaveDate Played: 03/23/2010

Always enjoy playing Crow Creek, just have never had a start on time. Course is well maintained and fun to play.
TeddyDate Played: 01/28/2010
Crow Creek is one of my group's favorites. Course was in great condition with overseeding. Greens were excellent. Only wish it were dry.
DonaldDate Played: 12/17/2009
OK; very wet - cart path only.
DaveDate Played: 12/16/2009
Too wet again. Course was in best condition of the five. All wanted to play again this year. They gave a rain check for this year because of the tornado that chased us off the course in '08.
LarryDate Played: 11/30/2009
Nice clubhouse. Course was over-watered and not maintained (long grass, leaves, wet), which forced cart path only. Very disappointing.
RonDate Played: 11/25/2009
Much the same as our first round; we liked the course, but it was very wet.
DennisDate Played: 11/19/2009
This course was a very enjoyable experience, great greens and a good layout.
MattDate Played: 11/09/2009
We enjoyed this course so much last year we played it again this year. We know we come when courses are overseeding, and that is the only downside to our round.
PaulDate Played: 11/09/2009
Just not up to par with the other courses (I played - Shaftesbury Glen & Caledonia).

AlanDate Played: 09/15/2009
Nice course, have played there before.
PeteDate Played: 08/19/2009
Very disappointed with quality of the golf course in August. Greens in poor shape, chewed up, ball marks, crabgrass on greens, brown spots on greens. Fairways soggy from too much watering. I know it's August and you have to water bermuda to keep it going, but it was very soggy in a lot of places.
DerekDate Played: 08/05/2009
Excellent, excellent, excellent course. No problems at all. Pretty forgiving and open. Similar to Long Bay in quality. Highly recommend this course. Tee boxes, fairway, greens in A+ shape. Cannot go wrong. Must play. Everyone was friendly, clubhouse is 5-star, top-notch. Really nice course.

DavidDate Played: 02/23/2009
Sopping wet and overseeded. Cart path only. Tees back at the worn edge. Pins upfront on greens. I won't play there again unless I confirm that it wasn't overseeded and soaked. Some in party couldn't finish. Ugly experience for an expensive course.
JohnDate Played: 02/23/2009
Nice conditions, will return. New clubhouse was not open yet, temporary was crowded due to a large group, which is why ratings on service were a little low, otherwise everything was fine.
FrankDate Played: 02/17/2009
Commented on September 12, 2008: Tough, yet fair. A good golf test with plenty of water. Currently worth the price of admission. Once all the housing in the area gets completed it may take a little away from it.

Played June 8, 2008: The starter at Crow Creek gave us a lecture because we got to the golf course 5 minutes before tee time. He said we were lucky he didn't bump us. It was our first time down and sometimes it takes you a little longer to find the golf course.
