Excellent conditions. The course was in amazing condition and the staff was outstanding.
ScottDate Played: 10/05/2020
Very tough unforgiving course. If you don’t hit the fairways you are in trouble. Grounds were in great shape. Staff friendly and accommodating
JohnDate Played: 02/05/2020
well manicured from tee box to green
CarlDate Played: 12/26/2019
The course was in perfect condition and the staff and starter were great. The layout of the course is its strength. Every hole is unique and memorable and not only challenging for a low handicapper, but very playable for the average player from the forward tees. Can’t believe I’d never played here before. I’ll definitely be back. Highly recommend this course.

Course was in great shape and was a nice track. The bag guys could have been a lot nicer; not even a “Good Morning” or “Welcome to Farmstead”

It was our groups 25th annual trip to the Myrtle Beach area and we booked the East Coast 4 package which included a $100 gift card to be uses for food/beverage or in the pro shop.This was our groups 4th time playing the course and as we remembered, it was in terrific shape. The one black mark for the course...They would not accept the gift card in the grill/lounge though they are a member of the East Coast 4 package group.
BillyDate Played: 03/12/2019
Great staff course was in great shape. Loved the greens well maintained course. Played this course the past 5years we were down. Highly recommend this course
HenryDate Played: 09/02/2018
Great shape feels, fairways and greeens. Bunkers thin in some places Good staff and food service. Lacks enough water on course, only one place on each side. Par6 finishing hole is a beast. Need more energy
MichelleDate Played: 06/12/2018
Course in good condition considering many courses in Brunswick county have issues with greens and rest of course. Bring balls as plenty of places to loose them.
RussDate Played: 05/27/2018
Haven't played here in several years. Got us on real quick ahead of a big group. Nice people, course in good shape , some winter burn on the greens but pin placements took them out of play
RDate Played: 03/21/2017
Had a nice time playing here. Greens great shape, but hard to read. Fairways nicely overseeded for winter, and the traps actually had sand in them. I have always felt this is the better course then the sister course at Meadowlands. Only thing I really don't care for is the par 6 finishing hole. Overall a good experience, and would play again.
DaveDate Played: 03/10/2017
Course was in good shape and fun to play. Pro shop reception was terrible. Took our money and barely said a word. Many area courses encourage players. Not Farmstead.
TimothyDate Played: 02/02/2017
We played on a very windy day, but the course is in great shape. No complaints at all. Staff was friendly and got us out on time.
JoelDate Played: 11/03/2016
I booked a tee time as a single this morning. I arrived 30 minutes early and went to the practice green. I was to be paired up with a twosome at 1:00. The course was very busy so I went with the expectation of playing a 5 hour round. While I was waiting the starter sent out 2 twosomes and a threesome. At 1:00 the twosome I was to play with had paid but they were no where to be found. At 1:05, after my tee time, the starter sent out a threesome. There is no excuse for the starter to make me wait 30 minutes and he made me wait after my tee time passed. He could have put me with at least 3 different groups. This is not the way to treat customers. You never know who that customer might be and what they may have to offer you. I recently relocated to North Myrtle Beach. I could have become a regular here but I won't return. There are plenty of other great courses to play on the Grand Strand. I can't tolerate bad customer service.
NickDate Played: 08/02/2016
By far the gem of the trip. Saw a lot of good reviews but when we got there it really exceeded my expectations. The greens were the best that we played all week 9.5 out of 10. Tee boxes 9.0 out of 10. The only thing I can really pick at were that the fairways were a little thin in some spots but that is really nitpicking 8.0 out of 10. Pro shop staff was excellent. Grill was very helpful. Outside staff was good. Overall a must play right now.
RonDate Played: 07/23/2016
1st time playing Farmstead. I will definitely play hear again. Great course!!
JakobDate Played: 06/28/2016
Course is very fun!
RobDate Played: 06/06/2016
Pretty open off the tee. When the wind kicks def makes a few holes real long.
JimDate Played: 05/01/2016
Very rude pro shop manager who would not honour $45 late afternoon rates posted on Web site and wanted $79 and finally settled for $55. To add insult to injury, the course was grossly overbooked with tee times running over an hour late, which he failed to tell us.
MandyDate Played: 05/01/2016
Good quality course but very busy was a slow round.
MorrisDate Played: 04/13/2016
The fairways are wide and forgiving. Would like to see a course map on the scorecard. There was a ranger but a very slow two couple foursome two groups ahead of us and he didn't seem to push them along.
JohnDate Played: 03/02/2016
Incredible conditions, great variety and challenge, top notch facilities, highly memorable. Looking forward to returning in the future.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. It helped make our day much more enjoyable!
DelDate Played: 05/19/2015
This is one great course the one could not ask for better fairways and greens. The course has something for every golfer and finishes up with a spectacular par 6 that is bordered by water on the left all the way to the green. Before and after the round, the staff were very friendly and easy to speak with. This course is a must play.
JamesDate Played: 05/17/2015
Fun course, good layout, enjoyed the par 6 hole. Best condition of the courses we played.
GlennDate Played: 05/07/2015
Enjoyed the links style. Course is very enjoyable for a high handicap. Greens rolled true. Would definitely play again.
Jean-MarcDate Played: 04/24/2015
Eccellent layout. Next time we will play again if the sunshine is there.
KeithDate Played: 04/23/2015
We were fine.
NickDate Played: 04/21/2015
Fun course ... no houses which is always enjoyable. Fairways and tees were excellent. Greens were spotting but still rolled true. Staff was not overly friendly but not rude by any means. Overall good experience, but with so many courses available just another one to knock off of the list.
SusanDate Played: 04/19/2015
This is a very nice, well-laid out course. It was interesting to play in two different states. The par 6 hole was just long; unusual but that doesn't make it all that interesting.
DavidDate Played: 04/13/2015
Course in great shape, staff very friendly and accommodating.
NicholasDate Played: 04/10/2015
Good shape ... fairways and tees excellent, greens spotty but still rolled true. Fun course, no houses.
DennisDate Played: 04/08/2015
Course is in great condition for early spring.
SteveDate Played: 04/03/2015
Course in good shape. Greens were fast but a little bumpy in areas (not unexpected for this time of year). Fairways are very wide. Lots of water but you really have to stray to find it. It was good starter course.
GaryDate Played: 04/03/2015
Narrow fairways with many sand bunkers. Fast greens.
SteveDate Played: 04/02/2015
Course was in good shape. Greens were fast. Fairways are very wide. Found course to be generally uninteresting. Par 6 finishing hold was fun. Great course to start your trip.
CharlesDate Played: 03/30/2015
Everything in shape despite rain. An enjoyable course to play. Of course, #18 you have to play from tips, unless it's busy. A solid golf course. just know what tees to play from.
GrahamDate Played: 03/24/2015
First time playing this course. A lot of water that did not come into play, making it a course that was visually pleasing. I think I will not play this course again. Greens were not very good.
DarwynDate Played: 03/12/2015
Well manicured, sand traps have great sand, greens fast.
TerryDate Played: 02/18/2015
Wet, cold day, highs in low 30's made for a round I'll never forget. I thought the entire course was in very good condition and greens rolled fast and smooth. I will be back to play when weather improves. Kudos to Farmstead Staff from pro shop to greenskeepers.
DavidDate Played: 02/08/2015
Total experience was great!
RussDate Played: 01/27/2015

The Par 6 is great!!!
RonDate Played: 12/30/2014
The course was in excellent condition for the time of year. The fairways and greens were in almost perfect condition. The layout makes for a fun experience. For the condition, layout and price Farmstead is one of the best kept secrets on the Strand.

Great course. Better then expected.
TullyDate Played: 11/14/2014
Fun course straddling the Carolinas. Par 6 is crazy finish!
MichaelDate Played: 11/13/2014
Overall a great time. Course was challenging yet playable. 18th was fun.
CarolynDate Played: 11/13/2014
Wet and soggy grass planted to late and trying to catch up, poor groundskeeping. Puddles and wet spot everywhere. Greens need attention but not being worked on. Overpriced compared to others we played with.
PeterDate Played: 11/03/2014
Distance away from Compass Cove. Too far out.
JohnDate Played: 11/02/2014
Nice shirts for sale, bought one. Chapstick over 2 bucks no thanks.
MarkDate Played: 11/01/2014
Starter seemed like we were bothering him being there. Ranger was rude advising that we needed to hurry up. The group behind us was not waiting and we stayed just behind group ahead having to wait a couple times to tee off. We were paired with a couple and used 3 different tee boxes. Ranger bad.
BartDate Played: 10/30/2014
Pace of play was excellent even with a full tee-sheet.
JohnDate Played: 10/29/2014
Just okay ... a lot of the holes were very similar.
BenDate Played: 10/27/2014
Fun and challenging course. #18 the par 6 is fun to play. Only complaint we had was that the course was very crowded and pace of play for the morning round was okay, but the afternoon replay was very slow. no rangers keeping the groups moving and we had to play 18 in the dark. Only other complaint is that they had no snack cart on the course. With it that slammed, seems like they would have had one running with the amount of play they had. The cart guy did apologize after the round about the slow play, but it was a little too late. I would definitely play here again.
JonathanDate Played: 10/26/2014
Overall player friendly!
DuncanDate Played: 10/26/2014
The course was in excellent shape. Greens rolled super nice.
DavidDate Played: 10/24/2014
This is the second time I played this course and again the rangers were so worried about keeping up with the being on schedule than they were about quality of your experience.

Course is in excellent condition. Greens roll well.
JoelDate Played: 10/15/2014
Although this was my least favourite I enjoyed playing the course. We had lengthy waits off the tees on the back nine which took some of the fun out of it. Got a little frustrated with the par 6 18th but all in all it was a good day.

Great course with super fast greens.
AlDate Played: 10/14/2014

TerriDate Played: 10/06/2014
It was raining the day I played so it's hard to judge but considering it's seemed like a very nice course. This is one course I will play when I come come back. I like you could play in the North and South. See you next year I hope.
CharlieDate Played: 10/05/2014
Very nice staff, all around.
BobDate Played: 09/30/2014
First time I've played here and who could forget the 18th hole!! Nice and easy golf course to play on if you play from the tees you should. Wide fairways and pretty big greens. Good fun course to play.
DaveDate Played: 09/23/2014
Very good course considering the greens were recently top dressed. They were still quick and putted true.
CharlesDate Played: 09/17/2014
Loved the par 6 finishing hole.
JohnDate Played: 09/17/2014
Excellent course! Very playable. The greens were in excellent condition, although a bit slow. The staff & starters were excellent.
CharlesDate Played: 09/07/2014
Fabulous course. Greens were so true. Made lengthy putts. Par 6 finish was fun. Crossing state line unique. But, the course was in such good shape those unique things were secondary in remembrance.
NickDate Played: 09/06/2014
1st time playing Farmstead. Great experience from check in to the 19th hole. Generous fairways, true and fast greens and an interesting track. Will play again.

SteveDate Played: 06/02/2014
All aspects of the course was very enjoyable. Our group was only able to play the front nine due to thunderstorms. We deffently plan on playing again and recommend to all to play this course. The 679 yard 18th hole you will tee off in South Carolins and finish in North Carolina
JosephDate Played: 06/02/2014

TonyDate Played: 04/25/2014
JamesDate Played: 04/17/2014
Love the course layout and the par 6. I did not like starting on the back 9 as it was the best holes on the course. They need to have at least 2 or 3 people in the grill room as we tried to order breakfast 40 minutes before our tee time and were told that they may not be able to get us our food before our tee time because they had 1 person working the whole room.
NickDate Played: 04/16/2014
Our group of 16 enjoyed Farmstead for the 2nd time in 3 years. The greens were not as a good as before but still at a high level. The course conditions are excellent and free of homes.
SteveDate Played: 04/08/2014
No. 18 is definitely unique and challenging at @ over 750 yrds & par of 6!
JeffDate Played: 04/02/2014
Was late for our tee time and starter was accomodating to get us out to our group on the second hole, then allowed us to play the 2 holes at the end of the round. Was very greatful.

VincentDate Played: 03/18/2014
The overall layout of the course was great. I enjoyed the 18th hole. First par 6 in my 30 years of playing. From the moment we arrived to the time we left the staff was incredible. We felt like members. We will be back next year.
MikeDate Played: 03/14/2014
Our favorite course in the Myrtle Beach area. My golf group of 36 want to play this every year. From the bag handlers' to the starter to the Pro Shop personnel, everyone is professional, courteous, and very accommodating to our group. We have no complaints whatsoever regarding this course. A true winner.

Overseeding and cart path only and wet fairways
JosephDate Played: 11/05/2013
Over seeded fairway, but we could ride rough and they had cross over paths so as not to slow play. Good fair course with true rolling greens.
AndrewDate Played: 11/05/2013
Started us late, then told us we were not keeping pace. fairways and tees uncut.

I played farmstead before and really enjoy playing there. I love the par 6 even though I shot a 8 . The course was just re-seeded and we had to drive the carts in the rough. Also a very wide course in case your drive goes astray.

MarkDate Played: 07/09/2013
Didn't play Farmstead because course was closed due to rain, Ambassador relocated me and my playing partner to Long Bay. Course was wet, but playable. Tough course for a bogey golfer, but enjoyed the day. Thanks
CharlesDate Played: 07/01/2013
I will never play at Farmstead again. There was one to two inches of water standing in all the fairways. They should have never allowed us to go out. They only said it was cart path only, not flooded. I will be sure to tell everyone I know not to consider Farmstead. To bad the layout looked interesting.
ToddDate Played: 06/19/2013
Farmstead was by far the best experience I have had in quite some time. From the captivating entrance to the thrilling par-6 finishing hole at the clubhouse, this course has made a lasting impression on me. I will be making this my go-to course so long as the course conditions remain near perfect when I played on 6/16. Thank you for the amazing round on a beautiful Sunday morning.
DavidDate Played: 06/13/2013
I have been coming the MB since 1989 and these were the best conditions I have played on, for a $50 green fee, worth more. Sand traps were in poor condition but that was due to the severe storms that hit the area a week earlier. Crews were working on traps. I will play again. One thing that would help is a course lay-out on score card or on tee box signs.
ToddDate Played: 06/10/2013
Nice course. Tees and fairways in very good shape. Greens were not terrible, but not the shape of the rest of the course. Would play again.
HenryDate Played: 06/03/2013

JohnDate Played: 05/30/2013
Played course on 5/24/2013. Greens, fairways and tees were really great. This was second time I played this course this year, the first being in the winter. This is a nice course and look forward to playing it again soon.
RobertDate Played: 05/23/2013
For my party is was a new course and we enjoyed the experience. The par 6 was a great challenge but we also enjoyed the entire course. we found it a little more forgiving which made it a good finishing round for our trip. They added a third with us who was an employee of the course. He was great and we really enjoyed playing along with him. Very friendly and helping by telling us best locations for shots to avoid hazards. Mike was the best.
PhilDate Played: 05/21/2013
This course was very pleasing to the eye. It played fair for an average golfer. The range was nice and the putting green was consistent with the course greens. I will return to this course.
JeffDate Played: 05/20/2013
Beautiful course. In great shape. FAST greens. Challenging par 6 hole to finish. Enjoyed the day.

MontyDate Played: 05/09/2013
We were connected with a couple from Canada, and they were a joy to be around and play with. We've been to Farmstead maybe 4-5 times, and each time has been good in terms of course conditions, people, staff, service, and most importantly weather! Hope to see you again this Summer.
LarryDate Played: 05/06/2013
Course was in better condition when I played here in 2011. Pace of play was very slow
BobDate Played: 05/03/2013
This was my 3rd year coming to Myrtle Beach and to me this is one of the best maintained courses we have played. The layout was good and the overall conditions of the tees, fairways and greens was excellent. We played the course on 4/28 and our group didn't have enough good things to say about the course. The only issue we had all day was with the guy working in the ProShop during the late afternoon. A few of us wanted to replay another 9 holes but were told we couldn't because groups were coming through on both nines. It was 4:30 in the afternoon - we didn't see anyone coming back around to play the front. It seemed like he wasn't interested in stick around so he just wouldn't let us play another nine. In addition as were leaving he made some rude comments to the lady working the grill about our group. Other than this individual we found the rest of the staff to be extremely friendly.
ChuckDate Played: 04/25/2013

I live in MB. My brother, his 2 boys, and several other friends come down for an annual spring golf outing. I personally love the Farmstead golf course. It's one of my favorites here on the Grand Strand. My brother and his two boys enjoyed it very much as well. It's always a pleasure to play Farmstead. Course it very well maintained and playable. Staff is very pleasant. Love your logo...the rooster with multi-colored feathers. Will be back again.
JohnDate Played: 03/11/2013
This is a nice course and will play this again. The fairways were, for the most part, excellent. The greens were almost great but not quite. Only problem I had, and this is not the staff's fault, was the twosome I was paired with to make a threesome didn't want anyone to join them. The starter was very nice about it and let me tee off on 10 but ended up a single sandwhiched between 4 somes. In over 50 years of playing I never had this happen before. Made for a long lonely day but it was so nice a course it was a good day.

BobbyDate Played: 11/01/2012
We played 13 rounds of golf this trip and Farmstead was one of the best. We are 8 to 18 handicappers and this course provided the opportunity for each of us to score well. Wide fairways, reasonably fast greens and a beautiful setting. We felt like we were the only players on a hidden gem of a course in the woods. Highly recommended. P.S. Love the southern cartgirl accents.

Good first hole for a weeklong trip. Wide landing zones, good sight line from tee to green.
JamesDate Played: 10/11/2012
The staff was good the starter was full of information that was helpful.
BobDate Played: 10/05/2012
Great course, good challenge.
RogerDate Played: 10/05/2012
(Liked) the layout, the staff who was able to change my tee time without a hassle.
DebsDate Played: 09/11/2012
Very nice conditions from tee, fairway and greens. Enjoyed play. A little slow pace of play. I did not like that you had a long walk to practice range and could not take your cart.
LeroyDate Played: 09/08/2012
Starters and rangers very friendly and helpful, greens were smooth, fun but challenging layout, awesome finishing hole!
WilliamDate Played: 09/07/2012
Fun course to play.
JosephDate Played: 08/27/2012
(Would like to have known prior to play) that there would be a half hour wait at the turn and would take 3 hours to play the back 9. All courses need to stop overbooking the morning double tees.
TimothyDate Played: 08/20/2012
I thought the greens were great. They rolled true.
RoyceDate Played: 08/20/2012
The course was open yet very challenging for any handicap golfer.
SteveDate Played: 08/14/2012
The last hole - par 6 was fun to play. The overall layout and course conditions were excellent. A fun course to play.
TimDate Played: 07/28/2012
Great course, nice people! I would play it again.
LauraDate Played: 07/23/2012
We LOVED this course! The greens were slick and rolled true. We loved the challenging layout, the beauty of the course and the friendly staff. Paul the Starter was very knowledgeable, and the bartender poured us a perfect martini afterwards. We will be back next year, and we have been telling anyone who will listen to play Farmstead! PS ... Dennis Rabon tipped us off to this great course.
PatsyDate Played: 07/22/2012
Farmstead may have been the nicest course we played during our stay; however, the experience just wasn't as good as River Hills and Myrtlewood - Palmetto. The staff wasn't as inviting as the aforementioned locations. The course was extremely busy. In fact, the course decided to double tee each hole. Finally, the greens were recently aerated. The greens/fringe combination made it a very difficult day chipping. The greens were extremely hard and lighting fast, but the fringe was very soft and plush. If a chip shot hit the fringe, it was stopping immediately. The course is very open with some extremely wide fairways.
ErskineDate Played: 07/15/2012
Would have liked to see how course or hole lays out. Either with scorecard, tee marker or range book.
RaymondDate Played: 07/03/2012
Great golf course at a great price.
ChrisDate Played: 07/02/2012
Very courteous service from bag boy to starter. We knew the greens had been punched a few weeks earlier but decided to play anyway since neither of us had played here. We were very surprised at the great course conditions, the excellent fairways, bunker conditions (for the most part) but were especially surprised at the condition of the greens. Very consistent, very smooth, not marked up at all and easy to repair ball markings. We will recommend your course to everyone we know. Thank you for making our day a memorable one. Only negative we had was the heat index that day, ugh. We'll be back.
TerryDate Played: 07/01/2012
No trees for shade. Would not go back.
RaefordDate Played: 07/01/2012
Loved the course but played in extremely windy conditions.
BobDate Played: 06/25/2012
Farmstead is our favorite Myrtle Beach area course. The staff is great and we have always found course conditions to be as good as any course in the area. Expect a 4 1/2 hour round unless you have an early tee time. If there was anything to improve, I would suggest figuring out how to have beverage cart service in both states.
MarkDate Played: 06/13/2012
Great layout, nice greens. Only complaint was POP ... about 5 hrs.
ToddDate Played: 06/12/2012
Greens were smooth and fast. Wide fairways. Hit to 150 stake and avoid trying to cut blind corners. Really enjoyed the course and will play again when visiting.
RobertDate Played: 05/28/2012
There was rain around us the day we were supposed to play and we were given rain checks with no problem, no hassle.
DavidDate Played: 05/20/2012
Nice layout. Enjoyed making shot decisions. Loved the Par 6.
MichaelDate Played: 05/07/2012
Played the first 9 holes (back) in 2 hours and the 2nd 9 in 3 hours (waiting on every shot). Overbooking the cause of the back 9 slowness. Starter stated this is normal everyday happening. Didn't seem to care.
DaveDate Played: 05/03/2012
We played this course last year and our group wanted to go back. This year, the consensus was that we would not be back. None of us liked the greens at all. They were cut short and were really fast. That would be OK, except there was sand all over them and every little grain made the putts roll off line. There were also 2 very slow groups in front of us. The marshall came by a couple of times but it never got any faster.
KeithDate Played: 05/03/2012
Great layout. No houses on course. Big fast greens.
MurielDate Played: 05/02/2012
This was a nice forgiving course and we enjoyed our time there. The weather was very windy and cold, which made the day a little longer. Bill, our golf mate, made the entire experience a wonderful one.
TravisDate Played: 05/01/2012
Nice layout and course conditions. Service could use improvement but that is not why our two groups go to courses. Would play again.
JamesDate Played: 04/28/2012
Very good conditioning.
TomDate Played: 04/24/2012
Great course, would tell everyone to go.
BobDate Played: 04/24/2012
It was nice. Our group is not a fan of links-type golf and prefer courses with more scenic appeal but did enjoy the round.
RobertDate Played: 04/22/2012
We enjoyed this course very much. If we come back to vacation we will be back to play.
BillDate Played: 04/19/2012
Picked this off your Web site - based on the player rating - and they were right.
LesDate Played: 04/12/2012
I tell everyone that Farmstead is a must-play.
AdrianDate Played: 03/25/2012
All staff we met were very courteous - we fully enjoyed our day.
GeorgeDate Played: 03/13/2012
Very enjoyable round of golf. Scenic, attentive staff, beautiful greens and fairways.
JohnDate Played: 03/11/2012
Wide open. of course number 18 is unique. Number 2 and 3 took an hour to play. I wish that congestion did not happen.
TedDate Played: 02/26/2012
Liked the course a lot and staff was nice. Got behind a foursome of very slow players which was disappointing.
PeterDate Played: 01/04/2012
Nice course, well kept for this time of the year, a nice value. Thanks.
DonnieDate Played: 01/03/2012
Great place to play and will try to play in 2012.
JerryDate Played: 12/09/2011
It would have been nice to know about the 90-man tournament that was there the day we played. Slow play is not fun.
BDate Played: 12/05/2011
PaulDate Played: 11/14/2011
Loved the par 6. Nice layout, good conditions. No complaints at all.
NeilDate Played: 10/28/2011
We were told we could play a replay, when we got there, when we finished they said we could not, we had to argue with pro shop to be allowed to go back out, by then we could only play 9 holes.
WayneDate Played: 10/20/2011
Was beautiful. Hole description on the tees would have been helpful.
RayDate Played: 10/20/2011
Par 6 was fun.
MarkDate Played: 10/11/2011
Good course, good conditions.
RonDate Played: 09/27/2011
Very windy cold and damp. Greens very fast for the conditions which made it hard to putt. Ha d a good time otherwise.
BillDate Played: 09/27/2011
Played through and after some fairly hard rain, course rebounded exceptionally well.
AllenDate Played: 09/24/2011
Fun course. The course was in great shape.
JohnDate Played: 08/22/2011
Our foursome was very impressed with the condition of the course. The course was in A+ shape. The par 6 was a lot of fun.
DonDate Played: 08/09/2011
This course is one of our favorites. The greens are always in good condition and fast. Played on a Sunday afternoon and since the course was essentially empty, no beverage cart. A few more places to get water on the course would be good. A fun place to play and we always enjoy the par 6!
KevinDate Played: 07/11/2011
Great course. Very enjoyable. Certainly would like to visit again.
GeraldDate Played: 05/19/2011
Good layout. Above average greens. The par 6 keeps me coming back.
EdDate Played: 05/13/2011
Sign me up for another tee time.
LukeDate Played: 05/11/2011
Course was awesome. Some of the fastest greens we've ever played.
FredDate Played: 05/11/2011
It was the best course that I played this trip. Greens fabulous, overall condition excellent & pace of play was super. I'm coming back here next year.
MikeDate Played: 05/04/2011
Loved the par 6. Great layout.
ThanDate Played: 04/22/2011
We enjoyed the course. Since it is early season, the fairways/greens were not yet up to expectation.
MarkDate Played: 04/13/2011
First time at Farmstead, will play again. Fairways some of the best I've ever played! Par 6 was a lot of fun too.
JimDate Played: 04/12/2011
Great layout and fairways. Greens are great on the front, but not so good on the back nine.
LonnieDate Played: 04/12/2011
We enjoyed playing the course. It was a favorite along with Myrtle Beach Nation South Creek course. The course was in great shape.
RonDate Played: 04/12/2011
Loved #18, never played a par 6 before. We will be back as we loved the course.
HenryDate Played: 04/07/2011
Restriction to cart-path-only though course appeared to have drained well. Would also like to know that there is no beverage cart service on the back nine. It was stated to us that the course did not have a South Sarolina license but isn't that part of doing business in 2 states?
JamesDate Played: 03/29/2011
Scorecards lacked course layout. Other than that, it was a great experience.
TomDate Played: 03/20/2011
Played on 3-10-11 before the rains came. We all thought it was a good layout and interesting. We loved the par 6. Pro shop could have been a little friendlier. I had that challenge coupon and wanted buy a sweatshirt but not allowed only shirt shirts. I would still come back.
ChrisDate Played: 03/16/2011
Always a great time at Farmstead, this was our 3rd or 4th year playing it in a row, and most likely will be back next year. The group likes it so much that we make it the day we all dress up in our knickers. Every fun course is a must-play!
LarryDate Played: 03/04/2011
Interesting 18th hole.
JeremyDate Played: 03/01/2011
Great place to start off the week. Always in great condition!
BrianDate Played: 02/09/2011
No tricks, good condition for winter. would play again. 9 hole replay rate too high.
JeanDate Played: 12/30/2010
Played on Dec. 30. Course was in good shape for this time of the year, greens were great (a bit slow). Staff was great except for the starter (rude, not friendly at all).

JoeDate Played: 11/03/2010
Fair course; I would play it again.
MichaelDate Played: 10/25/2010
The round took 5.5 hours; the marshals need to keep the pace of play up.
BenDate Played: 09/27/2010
Greens were great. They still have someone begging for money on a par three hole, which we don't care for. We have photos from two previous annual visits to Farmstead, but they did not offer that this year. Need more water on golf course!
SteenDate Played: 08/28/2010
Played this course on August 27. The best greens that I've seen this summer in the area. Very nice and super fast, can't get any better than that. Course layout is made for a good challenge, not too tough but you still have to play ball to score well. Staff was friendly, and all in all a good golfing experience worth more than the price paid.
PhilipDate Played: 08/25/2010
DanielDate Played: 08/08/2010
I needed a lesson amd the pro Jason was very, very good. Excellent!
DeWayneDate Played: 08/06/2010
The greens were in excellent condition. Better than most courses that I have played in a while.
GeorgeDate Played: 07/18/2010
Fairways and greens were great. Pro shop staff was great help, and got us squared away fast. We had a heavy rain just after starting the back nine, so we pulled off at the restroom building to wait it out. After the rain, we continued play, as we would at our home course. After about an hour, one of the marshals finally came around the course, and told us to pick up and leave. When we asked when the horn to close the course was blown, he was rude. We were playing with two locals who had played there several times before, and they were surprised at the way we were treated. They agreed that no horn was blown, or we would have all left the course. Turned an otherwise great course a little sour. We might play there again, but they need to do a better job of double teeing, they had someone teeing off on #1 when we made the turn for our back nine.
DaveDate Played: 05/05/2010
Did not feel pushed as tee times were spaced out! Great Time! The Par 6 hole was a great challenge and a neat experience!
RandyDate Played: 03/30/2010
I took a lesson there ... it helped me a lot ... will come back.
RickDate Played: 03/29/2010
Wow, The course was outstanding. Fairways are plush and the greens are like putting on a pool table. Staff was friendly and polite. Only issue was with the misleading charity thing they do on hole #3. Should have known better. Nothing comes for free. They ask you for $10 donation and you get coupons for stuff in and around MB, they tell you that you receive a FREE Wedge, not true, you have to pay $28 for shipping & handling. Only useful coupon was a free draft beer.
JeffDate Played: 03/21/2010
This course tested everyone in our group. The starter/staff was superior.
GaryDate Played: 03/20/2010
I would suggest you avoid this course unless you are fine with a 5 hour plus round. Our group played the course on 3/15/2010. Overall the course was in good condition other than the greens being very hard. Pitch and run golf is required. While playing the first nine, the marshall advised us we were playing too fast (2 hour 10 minute pace). Later in the round we started experiencing a wait on each hole. After playing 9 holes, we discovered that there were 5 groups lined up on the tee. We experienced a 36-minute delay before we could start our second nine. The second nine was very slow. Be advised that the course allows fivesomes and when we inquired we were told by the staff that fivesomes do not slow the pace of play. We saw little very little concern for customer satisfaction. An employee of the course informed us that as long as we keep having 230 golfers a day we won't change anything.
SteveDate Played: 03/20/2010
we had a 40 minute delay at the turn...... to many groups
ClintDate Played: 03/11/2010
On a couple of holes the drainage area was the sand.

Loved the 18th hole Par 6. A beautifully maintained course.
LiseDate Played: 10/08/2009
Very nice golf course but the marshal didn't go out on the golf course some times and it was so long to play.
BillDate Played: 10/02/2009
Good value for the price, which kept our overall package price down. Had played this course on previous trip and returned due to shape/price.
RobDate Played: 09/30/2009
Another course that has become a favorite. Great conditions and the greens were superb.
DonDate Played: 09/14/2009
Was familiar with the course. Still like it very much and hope to play it again soon. Considering the number of rounds it carries, it was in GREAT shape.
BrianDate Played: 08/23/2009
Great course. Greens were the fastest we played all week. Will play again.
BobDate Played: 08/17/2009

Slickest greens I have played this year. Great conditions; I had a great time challenging the course and myself. I would play it again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend this track.
JeremyDate Played: 06/19/2009
Course was great as always. People are friendly, conditioning is perfect, we will come back every year.
RichardDate Played: 06/05/2009
Had to tee of an hour late because they overbook the course. The wouldn't even load our clubs on a cart and let us take it to the range. Staff was rude. Took us 4 hours to play the first nine holes! Nice course but I would NOT repeat. Very poorly managed.
JeremyDate Played: 05/27/2009
Farmstead was in great shape as always. It sits to the North of some of the other courses, but you can always count on great conditions at both it and its sister course, Meadowlands. The price was reasonable and the pace of play ideal.
WilliamDate Played: 05/27/2009
Have played here before, but will not include in nextg year's rotation.
BillDate Played: 04/12/2009
Very nice course with a great finishing hole.

JoshuaDate Played: 03/17/2009
The golf course was in excellent shape and it was the first time I had played there. I was in love with everything till we made the turn. I will NEVER play this course again unless theylearn how to run a club. When we finished the front 9 we had played it in 2 and half hours. IT took us another 3 and half hours to play the back 9 because of the way they booked tee times. They had groups just starting their round on the back 9 while groups were getting ready to finish on the back nine. At one point we had 5 groups on a PAR 3 THAT IS RIDICULOUS. Again great shape nice course poorly ran.
RobDate Played: 03/10/2009
Wonderful course. The staff did a commendable job to get everyone out on the morning of 3/3/09 due to a significant overnight frost. They shotgun started everyone just after 10am.
MartyDate Played: 02/23/2009
sent people off 1 & 10 promoting slow play so they could put more golfers on golf course. for the first time in my life the starter told us we were playing to fast we needed to slow down. the grill room girl would not fix me a hot sandwich and we had to wait for 20 minutes to start on hole #1 which was our back nine I WILL NOT GO THERE AGAIN we played with 2 members and that was the only enjoyable aspect of the day. the 2 gentleman we played with told us that 2 weeks earlier they played with 2 other visiting golfers and it took 6 hours to play the round. never again
MichaelDate Played: 02/23/2009
Very slow, did not realize that this course averages over 5 hours. Love the par 6! This was the best conditioned course we played all week.
