Myrtlewood Golf Club – PineHills Course
”The Pines” course at Myrtlewood was originated in 1966, until it was revamped and redesigned by famous architect Arthur Hills and simply renamed PineHills. After its facelift, PineHills was nominated by Golf Digest in 1994 as “best new resort course.” One of the best parts of PineHills is its central location. Located off of 48th Ave. North and Hwy. 17 Bypass, PineHills is right in the heart of Myrtle Beach, thus making it very attractive to most tourists who don't have the desire to travel long distances. Offering the best bang for your buck, the PineHills course at Myrtlewood Golf Club is very reasonably priced for the type of golf course you get in return.
PineHills is very well maintained with its Tiff Dwarf Bermuda greens and fairways and measures 6,600 yards from the back tees. The length of the course makes PineHills great for the ladies while also challenging the men with the strategically placed trees and bunkers. Holes #7 and #18 truly are great holes and offer up some great risk-reward shots. #7 stretches all of 365 yards from the back tees but with a slight dogleg right, rough and water lining the left side and bunkers all down the right center this hole makes for a strategic tee shot, if you hit driver you may find yourself in the water that isn't visible from the tee box. #18 is very similar to #7. The finishing hole at PineHills is a 403 yard par 4 that is also a slight dogleg right. Your tee shot if struck well will clear the bunkers that line the right center of the fairway and the ball should roll down into a gully leaving you a little wedge shot into a water and bunker protected green.

Very crowded, we got a late start. Driving range is a little shoddy. Greens were good.
PaulDate Played: 04/29/2020
Course in great shape, greens rolled true--made quite a few putts so it was a great day-- playing the Palmetto Course this weekend

I’ve played about 80% of courses in the Myrtle Beach/Calabash area and the staff at Myrtlewood was the most friendliest I’ve experienced. The course was in great condition. I would come back just because I was welcomed with very friendly people.
JimDate Played: 11/06/2019
the course is long and it was made even longer by restricting the use of carts to cart paths only. I understand the reasoning behind the rule but I was disappointed that we weren't told about it until we arrived at the first tee
MikeDate Played: 11/05/2019
We only played 10 holes because it poured on us. The course was nice though. I was very unhappy bc although I was told we would be able to use rain checks the next day bc they double booked Pine Hills in afternoon and the rangers did not speed the group up in front of us on the Palmetto course we played a 5 hour round and did not get to use our rain check the next day.

A very playable layout with great spring conditions. The greens were firm and true, the fairways were generous and in great condition. A great place to play.
JustinDate Played: 03/06/2019
This is as good as it gets when it comes to golf in Myrtle Beach. This course was probably in the best shape of any course in all of Myrtle Beach. Beautiful club house with great food and the staff was awesome. I would play here everyday if I could.
KevinDate Played: 02/23/2019
Love this course!
DerekDate Played: 02/23/2019
Course layout is a bit confusing for first time players and not as intriguing as pine hills but still a fun course.
RogerDate Played: 02/16/2019
Good Course for average golfer

I play for the high school golf team and i thought that this was an amazing course and the guy who helped us out (Anthony) was an amazing person and really nice and the service there was really nice as was the course was beautiful.
MikeDate Played: 11/11/2017
I have played here many times and it's always enjoyable.
LeeDate Played: 11/11/2017
One of my favorite Myrtle Beach courses, I could play this course every day and never be disappointed. A minor amount of fungus on a couple of greens can be expected this time of year. All in all an outstanding value and great to play.
BrianDate Played: 11/04/2017
Was told that they had just over seeded and could not tell.
JimDate Played: 08/10/2016
Attempted to play this course in the early afternoon. The rate was much higher than any of the other courses in the area, $58.00. But what's worse is the treatment outsiders receive from the staff in the pro shop. Very rude very pompous and obvious they don't want outsiders playing their course. It's to bad because up until a couple years ago my kids and I would sink several hundreds of dollars into playing the course while staying at Myrtle Wood for a couple weeks. Not anymore. After the 2nd year being treated like garbage by the pro shop staff we will no longer spend any money there. There are too many options close by.
ReidDate Played: 06/23/2016
Called pro shop for tee time on Palmetto course. Shop said greens 80% heeled after maintenance. Very disappointed after we loaded carts and were sent to Pine Hills course. I tried to politely voice my concern, but was totally ignored. Would have never played Pine Hills with so many other choices for less money and better layout. Greens in horrible condition. Fairways and tee boxes very nice, but greens not even close to 80% heeled.
TimothyDate Played: 02/03/2016
The course was wet, so cart path only. The staff were pleasant to deal with which makes for a nice day. It's very wet so it plays long. The greens were a little sluggish but playable. The only thing that was negative was the guy SMOKING in the crowd at the bag drop, I don't think that the staff should allow smoking near the customers.
EddieDate Played: 01/02/2016
I had a tee time booked for 9 a.m. on New Year's Day. The practice range was closed which was understandable and expected. My 9 a.m. tee time was given to a huge group outing on this course. To be flexible and understanding I told the attendant that my party would be happy to move our tee time to the Myrtlewood Palmetto Course. The starter was very nice and explained the rules and restrictions completely. On the third hole, a group of golfers were behind us. The group behind us yelled and were rude to our group as we approached to hit our balls. Mind you that the course was under water and was cart path only, also understandable and great decision by the greens staff. So we let the inconsiderate group play through. On the eight hole on our second shots the ranger told us we needed to keep up with the group on front of us. I even carried my bag on several holes so that we could stay within the pace of play. We were only maybe five minutes slower than we should have been. I told him we let them play through he said he didn't care we needed to keep up with their pace. They were running through the water soaked fairways to get to their balls. It would seem to me that the ranger would know that the play was going to be a little slower than usual because of the course conditions and restriction. The reason I know this is because I work a golf club and know how things work. My group paid $54 each to play. Our decision to do so, is it to much to ask that a ranger know the conditions and restrictions and be a little considerate to guests of the club. The cart we were assigned to was dirty, it had burnt matches and cigar wrappers in the cubbies of the cart. I would not recommend this course or courses to anyone ever. They seem to be just in the business to get the money and have no clue about customer service. If anyone chooses to play at either of these courses, just know not to expect to much from the staff. We left and didn't finish our round of golf.

RonDate Played: 04/17/2014
Same as above
DavidDate Played: 03/14/2014
Scored the fairways and the greens low on the survey due to the fact the course was extremely wet. Nothing that could be controlled. I walked about 700 miles that day as well due to the entire course being cart path only, again due to excessive rain.
CharlesDate Played: 12/04/2013
JoeDate Played: 10/14/2013
First time playing but enjoyed it enough to definitely come back
JohnDate Played: 10/14/2013
Slow play: 5+ hours. Too many holes with same dog-leg right layouts.
JudyDate Played: 09/27/2013
This course was a little harder than we thought it would be but it was a beautiful course, well taken care of and we had a great time.
EbDate Played: 08/20/2013
Myrtlewood does a nice job handling golfing groups such as outs
SethDate Played: 08/09/2013
Played 8-2-13. 7:56 am tee time. Great course and layout. Loved the course and would go back. Challenging but not too hard. Bunkers were not in best shape but rained hard the day before. Greens nice. Fairways in good shape. Fun to play and we got done in 4 hours and 10 minutes and it was packed. Did not get anything in grill but grabbed a beer from cart girl. A couple fun holes. Enjoyed the par 5 on the back where you could cut the dogleg right with drive over tall tree and go for it in 2. Must say it is only course I have played where bag attendants don't unload clubs. Didn't mind it, but found it odd. Maybe because they are so busy. I can't wait to play the Palmetto course on next trip
LaneDate Played: 07/29/2013
Great staff, including grill. Course is good condition. Very enjoyable time. Water was a challenge for me (lost 4 balls due to my slice). Thanks for participation in Prime Time.
JosephDate Played: 07/01/2013
The course was in excellent condition.
ScottDate Played: 05/20/2013
You have no Marshall I have never taken that long to play a game in my life 5 1/2 hours for 18 hole s that is wrong. You apparently over book your course won't play there again
DaveDate Played: 04/29/2013
All around perfect for the course I was their at 7:15 no staff the help with the clubs doing other things.

I think that the overall experience with your club was awesome. We were treated like members.

Great Staff that was polite, knowledgeable and eager to help make the overall golf experience wonderful. Have visited both courses many times with the top conditions. Would recommend for all levels of playing ability.
FrankDate Played: 04/01/2013
Course was well manicured. Maybe the restauranat area could use a facelift ?

Busy course we only played nine holes because we arrived late after long drive from michigan.
KennyDate Played: 01/26/2013
Second time playing this course and it is one that I would come back and play again.
WalterDate Played: 01/13/2013
Have played both Myrtlewood courses and both times the experience was a very good one. I expect I will be back in the near future.
DougDate Played: 12/04/2012
I really like this course, it is always in good shape. Pro shop staff and starters are very good.
RobertDate Played: 11/11/2012
Very nice course - will be back!
DouglasDate Played: 11/04/2012
Though not a long course, the bunkering and presence of water provided plenty of challenge for my level of play.
KevinDate Played: 10/22/2012
This is our favorite at Myrtlewood. Shorter than Palmetto, we had many more chances at hitting the greens in reg. Just beautiful!
BenDate Played: 10/13/2012
A fun, but challenging course. Well kept, with an excellent staff. They do it right!
DavidDate Played: 10/13/2012
Play moved along. Open airways very forgiving if you didn't hit is straight.
GeorgeDate Played: 10/09/2012
Greens could be healthier.
JohnDate Played: 10/05/2012
Great course in excellent condition. Lots of bunkers of which I found most. Wide fairways made the course playable for all. My only complaint is the greens were very slow!!!
JohnDate Played: 09/26/2012
I had called and made a starting time at Myrtlewood. When I questioned the price, he referred me back to the online reservation. When I made a reservation through you and called back, he politely canceled the prior reservation I had made. It was a pleasant, no-hassle day.
ThomasDate Played: 09/07/2012
The course is short but lots of fun!
JimmyDate Played: 09/07/2012
(Would like to have known prior to play) that if we came with 2 golfers that we would be paired with someone else.

Unfortunately, the course was very wet. Otherwise, it was nice.
TonyDate Played: 08/31/2012
DonaldDate Played: 08/23/2012
A late add-on course before I left because of the price and proximity to where I was staying. What a pleasant surprise, a lot of really nice holes, I was very impressed with the greens and traps. Didn't play well today but that was my fault. Very nice course,I would recommend it.
MarkDate Played: 08/22/2012

DonnieDate Played: 08/12/2012
I will put this on my favorites lists. Even though it rained me out after the 9th hole. Great course!
MattDate Played: 08/11/2012
Greens were not in great condition. Older course with sand base greens and most of them has been recently aerated. Waited way to long to cut grass on the course ... clumps everywhere. Tee boxes a little rough to other courses in the area. I would rate it a 7 out of 10, mostly because of the price.
BradDate Played: 07/28/2012
Really well laid out course and nicely manicured. Would definitely recommend to others and plan to play again in the future.
RobertDate Played: 07/19/2012
Great all around experience. Would recommend to friends.
RonnieDate Played: 07/15/2012
Greens were slow due to verticut and sanding.
DarrenDate Played: 07/07/2012
Solid, fun course, nothing spectacular but good for what I paid, especially in a resort area. Smooth check-in, round a bit long at about 5 hours.

Nice layout. Enjoyed our round. Staff was very friendly.
GeneDate Played: 07/03/2012
I have played golf many times over the years and I have to say this course was one of the best maintained courses I have EVER played. The grounds crew keeps it in BEAUTIFUL shape. I would recommend this course to anyone.
HenryDate Played: 06/24/2012
The course was in amazing shape, I can't begin to tell how impressed I was with everything, I will be back.
JohnDate Played: 06/22/2012
Nice course, open fairways, plenty of water and sand traps for the average golfer. Ambassador Golf gave my family a great value for an above average Myrtle Beach golf course. Staff was very professional.
DennisDate Played: 06/21/2012
Friendly and well staffed facility. Greens were fantastic. Fairways and overall golf course layout was excellent. Price was unbeatable. Would play here again.
JamesDate Played: 06/21/2012
Great range, and chipping area to get you ready to start the round. Not a long course, but a great design that makes you think it through. Pars are a good score on most holes, but birdie chances definitely exist. Water and bunkers strategically placed make shaping shots a must. Had a great experience and would definitely come back, just to try the Palmetto Course.
PeteDate Played: 06/11/2012
(Liked the) layout.
BrianDate Played: 06/06/2012
Great shape and good challenge!
ColtonDate Played: 06/05/2012
The course was very challenging, tons of sand to play in. It appeared that the greens were recently aerated which made the greens terribly slow and hard, hard to get in the hang of.
AlanDate Played: 06/04/2012
MikeDate Played: 06/02/2012
Nice course, rate of $42 was competitive, will play there again.
WalterDate Played: 05/29/2012
Lucky to get a game in every year before they aerate it. Feels like home. Played it for 42 years. Good enough for a higher handicapper.

Good condition, lots of sand, easy course if you are playing well.
RonDate Played: 05/11/2012
Play was fast for first 9 but got slow with an inexperienced foursome in front of us on back 9. Nice course and a good value for the money. Will play again.

Excellent experience all around, as usual. Myrtlewood has always been the most favorite course to play for both my wife and I.
EdwardDate Played: 04/30/2012
An excruciatingly slow pace of play; round took well over 5 hours. Course was (or so it appeared) putting as many people out as they could whether they had a tee time or not to the detriment of all. On top a that, a truly unremarkable golf course.
MikeDate Played: 04/28/2012
Did not know they were double booking tee times which we had to wait for after the first nine played.
JackDate Played: 04/24/2012
Very playable course. Greens in great shape but on the slow side. Many opportunities for penalties with an errant shot. Played in under 4 hours but course not crowded.
RandallDate Played: 04/22/2012
IanDate Played: 04/03/2012
Great course - open, easy to play but some greens which were very tough.
JackDate Played: 03/29/2012
Nice layout, in good shape, not overly difficult. A little upset that Golf Now tee time wouldn't function, and ended up paying an extra 8 bucks to play. Played in a little over 4 hours, which was a refreshing change at this time of year.

Very nice course. good condition. Had an 8:22 tee time. Teed off 15 minutes late. Quit after 15 holes and 4:30 on the course. Was going to be a 5:30 round. Marshall was polite and tried to move people along but did not work.
