Brian (myrtle beach, South Carolina)


Fantastic. Great layout, great conditions. Plenty of room off the tees/driving. Premium on approach shots. Very nice course down in Pawleys island in the same general area as Caledonia, River Club, True blue. good practice area. well layed out. friendly staff.

Brian (Pittsboro, North Carolina)


Beautiful course.

Bill (Sanatoga, Pennsylvania)


Wonderful Staff. The Pro, Thomas Matthews was more than helpful. Approaches to most greens were very soft but understandable considering all the rain. Greens were fine.

Mark (Baldwinsville, New York)


challenging and beautiful

Anthony (Nellysford, Virginia)


Even the 4 inches of rain that fell just before we arrived couldn't ruin our overall experience. Courses were still in remarkably good shape and the staff made us feel like regulars. We can't wait to move down to the area.

Skip (Chaska, Minnesota)


Good course that would be much better if the rain stops and lets it dry out.

Carl (Murrells Inlet, South Carolina)


Course was playable and in good condition, but as with every course here in past 3 months, cart path only.

Gary (New York, NY)


Great place with beautiful views but too much water :-)

John (Hanahan, SC)


Conditions were good It should have been cart path all around due to weather course was soggy but still in good shape to play pulled up to drop bags off the attendant was awesome starter was great even after I passed him and he had to chase me down overall Staff great and helpful and friendly

George (Surfside Beach, SC)


Nice course to play! Carry more than one ball, lol...tricky course!

Richard (St. Petersburg , FL)


Great staff. Although it had rained the night before and it was cart path only, it was still an enjoyable round.

Ian (Highland, NY)


Beautiful layout of holes around lake on back nine. So many course's this is a gem.

Keith (Exton, PA)


A lot of Water

Samuel (Medford, NJ)


The staff was great! From the bag drop attendant,the Starter, the Grill, everyone was helpful and friendly. The course was I. Great shape although the greens were a little slow

Jesse (Morgantown, WV)


The course was in pretty good shape. The greens were a little slow.

Jeff (Rockville , MD)


Good variety of distances off the tee.

Brent (Clearfield , PA)


Wet, but playable

Jason (Jamestown, NY)


The course was beautiful, it was wet due to a major rain and feel like it would have been better if it weren’t so wet.

John (Duncan, SC)


The course was in great shape--especially considering we had several inches of rain less than 48 hours prior to our round. Kudos to the grounds crews!!

Jim (Murrells Inlet, SC)


Nice layout. Fairways and greens were good. A few greens still need some work from last winters damage. We played after 1:00 pm and thought the fees were very reasonable for the venue.

Bob (Pittsburgh, PA)


Very friendly staff and course was in pretty good shape

Virgil (Sebring, FL)


Beautiful course. Ranger was friendly and very helpful.

James (Lexington, NC)


Great layout

Albert (Philadelphia, PA)


Interesting track. Greens were recovering from aeration, but still were playable. Have played here many times and it always has been a challenge , yet fun.

Gary (Livonia, MI)


Very playable golf course. Usually course is in great condition, however, major rainfall for a couple of days. Course was very wet and had to play cart path only. Also, greens were just aeriated.

William (Greensburg, PA)


Fun course to play - challenging but forgiving...

Danie (Holly Springs, NC)


The main issue was the pace of play. it was nearly 5 hours.

Timothy (Bristol, TN)


Really like the layout. Also, when we've played it hasn't been too crowded in the afternoon and it just made for a real pleasant experience

Cecil (Lancaster, SC)


Love that place always played there for many years great staff and awesome course I go all the way back to the golf pro Steve Hamrick days!

Samuel (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Nice course and very friendly staff. Hard to judge the conditions of the course due to rain but we still enjoyed the outing.

Gregg (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Gentleman at carts feel. Camden nj was the nicest man I have met on a golf course in a long time. I would rate your course higher if the cart paths weren’t so bad. But everything else was great!!

William (Jamesport, NY)


Cart paths need to be re-done

Edward (Moosup, CT)


Good shape for the time of year

John (Suffield, CT)


Really enjoyed the course - everyone was very friendly - enjoyable experience - will play again

Fred (Leicester, NC)


Great shape

Danny (Easley, SC)


Very nice course despite heavy play. Start delayed due to slow play earlier in the day but starters were very nice and professional. Would definitely play this course again.

Jim (Aiken, SC)


Course was in good condition overall.

Gerald (Manhattan Beach , CA)


Very friendly staff. Course was backed-up for the first few holes, but opened-up after 3. I really enjoyed the back-9.

Collin (Davenport, FL)


Beautiful course

Gideon (Proctor, VT)


Course was very fun to play. Not long, but each hole had a challenge to work through. Greens were well done and overall the course was in great shape. Very playable for all hdcps. Would def play again!

George (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Really enjoyed the day, greens in great shape for this time of year and played in 4 hours.

Brian (Hanover, PA)


Course in great shape

Dave (Roswell, GA)


Ok golf course with a funky layout. I’d consider it a middle quality MB course-cart paths were crumbling, Club House was tired. Staff was very nice, and turf conditions were fine. It’s ok for locals but definitely not a destination course.

Brian (Effingham, SC)


Good beverage selection on cart

Gail (Ayr, ON)


Rate of play was extremely slow

Wendy (Little Britain , ON)


Course was in great condition. Starter was great and it was nice to know the Marshall was doing his job. Slow foursome ahead of us was told to speed up play!! Course is challenging (lots of water) and pretty!

Vincent (Midlothian , VA)


The greens were good as well as the fairways. Pro shop was fully engaged in providing a great experience. Grill staff made a great sandwich.

Drew (Nunda, NY)


This place is amazing so well taken care of. The staff is amazing and so friendly. I will be going be here for sure

Mark (Lancaster, OH)


First time playing this course. Looking forward to playing it again. Staff went out of their way to make sure we had a good time.

Bill (Windber, PA)


Awesome conditions for February. Water in play on 14 of 18 holes. She’s no pushover
