Prestwick Country Club

Prestwick Country Club is one of the most unique courses in Myrtle Beach, presenting natural hazards like whispering creeks and small lakes. Surrounding the entire course are dense pine forests and man-made knolls that give the added challenge to reach these deep bulkhead greens in regulation. Prestwick has been a prestigious course that does not go without being recognized – including “5 Best Kept Secret Courses in America” by Golf Digest (2004) and 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” guide (2006), and the SC Golf Rating Panel’s designation as among the “30 Best Courses You Play” (2004).

No. 14 at Prestwick has been ranked in the top 18 on the Beach. This 409-yard par 4 proves to be extremely difficult with a water hazard in play and a very undulating landing area on the tee shot. The approach shot must be from the fairway to have a chance at the green with uphill slope that will require an extra club. The other featured hole is the par-5  No. 9, playing at 486-yards; golfers must favor the right side of the fairway while avoiding an errant shot into deep bunkers that surround the right side of the green.

Very impressed with the quality of the course, the design and the people. The course is playable for all - tough but fair, and not too tricky (as other Dye courses can be). The people all were were happy and friendly, and were focused on enabling a fun and easy outing - something forgotten at some other courses on The Strand.

One of my favorite courses right in MB between the 2 rte 17's. close to airport (10min) for arrival day round or getaway day round. $85 for round. unfortunately this day we played in some early morning rain, on top of the fact that 5 days prior they had significant rain so course was saturated and cart path only. really like the layout and great greens. rain had big impact on some of fairways to the point of some spots lacking grass. unusual for this place so chalk it up to recent weather as this is pretty flat course. played here about 3 times in past and conditions always fantastic so chalking it up to aberration of the weather.

The course was in excellent condition and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The course is laid out very well with no parallel fairways. The first nine is tree lined while the back nine is more links style. The greens were fast, but putted true. It is a good test of your golf game. I would recommend that you move up a tee box from where your normally play because the course tends to play long.

We played this course in early January and the greens were painted and fast but nothing like yesterday. I'm not sure if they rolled them or what they did but they are almost unplayable because they are so firm and fast. Three times my putts rolled off the green because of the speed on downhill putts. After the rains, cart path only, you couldn't run a chip on because the area around the greens were wet and soft and if you chip on, the ball rolls forever. Really difficult to play. The course itself is a favorite of mine with a great layout and test of golf. The staff is excellent and friendly for a semi-private facility. I will return but not this year.

Like hitting onto asphalt and impossible to hold shots on greens. Fairways also very patchy with brown spots everywhere. To pay $110 for round here was outrageous. Staff also not very accommodating.

Just played the course last week and where do I start?The course had a freeze delay which delayed our tee time by 20-25minutes which was ok however the starter failed to tell us we needed to be done with back 9 by 12:20 as they had now loaded up afternoon tee times.We finished on time but were told to go to the tee.I had not eaten or gone to the bathroom.I did get a boxed lunch and go to bathroom however upon getting to the tee there were 4 foursomes waiting for us I did not tee off but choose to eat along with my partner while my playing partners played the hole out.This did help us as we gained a good time gap between us and the groups behind us BUT I didnt play that first hole.The other BIG issue was the greens or lack of greens they were painted sand.I played here 2 years ago and loved the course after this time not sure if I will come back.

Prestwick is always on the list to play. We played on 2/9/13 and had a great time. The greens have been painted but they still putt true. They have a solid sand base which helps to check up coming into the greens. Fairways were okay and tees were good. I will look forward to playing again if I get a chance. They have a number of tees to choose from so pick the right one according to the scorecard and you'll find the course a fair test of golf. The staff was excellent and got us out a little early because the course was not full. Thanks.

He drove off in a cart and came back and said it was mole control? No one knew about this? They had also done top dressing to the greens and the sand was soaking wet from the dew.
