Crown Park

Located just a few miles west of North Myrtle Beach in Longs, South Carolina, Crown Park Golf Club has carved out a niche as being a home- and condo-free golf environment away from the slightly more hectic pace of the Grand Strand’s busiest areas.

Measuring at 6,477 yards from the back tees, Crown Park is going to overwhelm the majority of players with sheer distance. However, the Robbie Byers design implemented doglegs, mounding and streams to keep the challenge present. Because of that, brute power isn’t going to pay off. Water is present on 14 of the 18 holes. And while the hardest hole on the course – the par-4, 397-yard No. 3 – may not look like much, a tee shot brings water into the equation before funneling to the green throughout the final half of the hole. There’s also a dogleg left as tight as any on the Grand Strand on the par-4 No. 7, the need to hit over water twice on the par-4 No. 12 (which also includes a dogleg right) and then a different approach altogether on No. 15. That hole, a “true three-shot” par 5 measuring 549 yards, players are actually asked to go very long off the tee as to avoid having to lay up prior to a natural grass hazard that cuts the fairway in half. Just to make it more interesting, a narrow, 37-yard green awaits your approach shot.

Crown Park Golf Club recently received a rating of 7.6 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider. The course also drew higher marks in terms of pro shop and staff. The course is still in its relative infancy – it opened in 2002 – but already it has been recognized as the “Golf Course Maintenance Operation of the Year” by the Classic Golf Group, meaning the conditions on the par-72 track are at a premium.

This is a good warm-up course that offers a manageable layout at a fair price. Fairways and tee boxes were in good condition, while the greens were recovering from recent aeration. I enjoyed Crown Park and would play it again.

I had not played CP for a while and the current condition of the course will only push my next replay for many more months. The fairways are thin and the greens have been hit with some type of disease (let's say that a leopard has less spots...). Furthermore the customer service at the course went from great to mediocre at best! Care to enjoy a golf outing do not have this one on the menu...

Overall a fun course at a nice price. I would place it in the middle as to types of courses available in MB. Winter Greens and they are a bit rough. I am not sure if they had cut new holes in several days. Fairways nice. This course can be wet, but was fine when I played. We rode all the fairways. Traps had sand, but it could be raked to fluff it up again. Course can play slow due to the layout of the holes. We played in 4 1/2 hours. Staff is very friendly, and it is a pleasant experience. I would play here again.

What a great day at one of the best kept secrets in the Myrtle Beach area. Played from the back tees. The course was challenging and yet very fair. The course was in good condition considering the heat and the staff is amongst the friendliest in the area. Combine this with a great price and overall it was a very enjoyable day.

The course was in great shape, with the greens putting very well. There were very few players on the course, so my threesome made the round in 3 hours. I would definitely play again.

Reasonable course. Good starting course for your week. Not too long but it did have a lot of doglegs and short holes. Could only hit driver 2 times on the front nine and only 4 times on the back. The staff were very friendly and the superintendent gave us some good tips on the practice green.

Nice for the price and even came with GPS on the carts which was needed. Tricky layout with dog legs and hazards right in the driving alley. Would play from the tips next time to keep so driver isn't kept in the bag most of the day. Conditions were just OK.

Crown Park was our first visit on the way down from Pennsylvania and we were welcomed as if we were back at our home club in Altoona. Staff was courteous, and the course was superb. In fact, we played CP again on our way back and have added it to our schedule for many golf trips to come. Greens are great and the course is a true challenge for all golfers.

Played Crown Park as a recommendation by a fellow member in West Virginia and I was impressed as soon as I stepped on the property. The porch facing the course is similar to what you see at Pinehurst. Wooded fairways and undulating greens await golfers of all caliber. A great place to play - PERIOD!

I tell you what, I have read a review from a guy complaining about the course and I KNOW this guy was at the wrong golf course. All the good golf is finding its way up to the north side of the island. There are modern designed and the technology in keeping them consistent ALL season long is in the North. Staff was impressive, food and beverage great and the course was a challenge. Greens are always in pristine condition while the fairways have the ball sitting up perfectly. Thank you for making my visit to MB a memorable one, Crown Park.

Don't waste your time, gas and money on this pretender - terrible drainage, dirt pot holes on fairways, untidy perimeters, unfriendly staff.

Greens were aerated a day earlier but were not bad. The blue tee boxes were the worst I've ever played on. It appeared they chose not to care for those tees to restrict water usage. Would not consider returning here in the future.

A well-kept secret. The day we played it was very wet, but otherwise was in perfect shape. The grill needs some expansion of the food selection, breakfast sandwiches are the only choice in the a.m. and are bad! Staff is excellent!

Great course. Everything was in great shape after all the rain. The only problem we had was that they sent out a group of five in front of us and there was only two of us. We were there in plenty of time for us to be but ahead of them on the 1st tee. We did eventually play through them but not until the turn. Even with that the course was great and would definitely play there again.

It lacks a design rating on this scale. Very well conditioned day to day course, nothing great or nothing bad just a little easy or boring. Still can't beat the value fo the dollar for this course.

Played on 8/9/10. Payed $35 and got free range balls and lunch to go along with golf. Carts have GPS in them. Course was in really good shape for this time of year down there. Greens were a bit slow for my liking but I do understand that they have to be careful during the summer months. Without a doubt the the best value on the beach.

We played MB National, South and North the day before we played Crown Park. Now we wished we had played all three rounds at Crown Park. Great course, even with the rain the day before. The greens were the best we have seen all year at MB. It was a pleasure to play a course without homes everywhere you looked. We will be back again!

Very well conditioned. Nice, scenic layout; not real difficult but must hit the fairways in order to score well. Played with a large group and a few of us wanted to play more and the counter person said it was wide open, but the starter said it would be an hour. When we made a tee time somewhere else he wanted to change his tune (his bad). Other than that, it was a nice time.

Take it from a local. This is one of the best conditioned courses you can play in Myrtle Beach for the money. They have an extremely friendly staff from golf shop to ranger. An all around great facility!
