Tradition Golf Club
Tradition Club, a Ron Garl designed golf course in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, has been an award winner since its opening in 1995. Golf Digest called it “Best New Public Course” in 1996. Two years later, the Tradition Club, whose five sets of tees make it a very woman-friendly course, was awarded “Top Fairways” by Golf for Women. Many tournaments are held on this challenging layout including the World Amateur Handicap Championship. For more than 15 years Tradition Club has been home of the South Carolina Golf Association's “Tournament of Champions.” This beautiful tree-lined course nestled in a community built on a 16th century plantation is a traditionally inspired championship course.
Whether you have a low handicap or a high one you will enjoy the many challenges of Tradition Club. Every par three is uniquely challenging and rewarding to par! But, before tallying your score, you will be tested by the signature hole … Number 7, a 375-yard par four with an island green that will capture your attention and demand your concentration … a hole to remember at Tradition Club! The long par 4s can make or break your round of golf while the par 5s will test your management skills. The 405-yard 18th hole is one of those par fours that combines strategy with skill as it leads you back to the Tradition Clubhouse for refreshments on the patio.

Very nice course. Layout is tough, but has some scoring holes. Weather was perfect which made playing that much more enjoyable.
GilDate Played: 10/14/2020
Very fair layout, with nice fairways and greens, first time playing it, it seems to play a bit longer than the card indicates, but overall a definite winner of a golf course
WilliamDate Played: 09/18/2020
Even after all the rain we had received in the area recently the course was in great shape, very few wet spots. Greens are in fantastic condition, consistent and good speed. Tradition offers a variety of unique holes which makes it a fun layout to play.

Loved this place since I first played it. Always play it twice when I come down. Only thing I don’t like is the double tee. Cut two tee times off the back side to keep people moving. Waited 25 min to start our second nine. The new greens were slow but true

BrianDate Played: 02/10/2019
First time playing Tradition in the 15 years been coming to MB. Course is in Pawleys island area about 35 min from airport. Close to True blue, Caledonia, river club, founders. Customer service was very friendly from the bag drop attendant to the pro shop employee. Nice practice are for warming up. Good size practice green as well. played in February in 50 degree temps. course was relatively empty. there was three 4- somes that had the tee times in front of us and the pro shop let us know that if we wanted to go out in front of them that would be no problem. no pressure to but our option. that was appreciated and we did shorten our warmup a bit and went out earlier and played in 3 hour 15 min. Course conditions were great from tee to green. Layout was fabulous. Very spacious landing areas no tricked up holes. everything right in front of you. tree lined fairways from pine, oak, even moss covered willow trees. played the white tees 6300 yds 70.7/124, only one longer set, black, which stretches to almost 6900 73.1/135. only thing course might be lacking is a tee in between those two. for me the whites were fine. bigger hitters might not like that 2 of the par 5 under 500 yds and the other 2 are 510 & 520 from the whites. Love this track and will definitely be back

New Greens are awesome. Not overly fast but speedy enough. Tee Boxes & Fairways are also in excellent shape. Staff was very friendly & had a ranger bringing around cold water on the course ( nice touch ) It was very hot today. You can score on this course if you put your ball in the right position off the tees

Course in great condition and very enjoyable round. Most holes have everything right in front of you so no surprises. Trees in the fairway initially gave me pause, but they are good distances out from tee box and easily gotten round. Loved it!
TedDate Played: 06/27/2018
Course is in great shape. The greens were recently punched but putted ok. They should be in very good shape in another week. Fairways are some of the best on The Grand Strand right now. Pace of play was 3hrs 20 mins for my foursome. Very friendly staff

BorisDate Played: 04/06/2018

MarkDate Played: 01/15/2017
Great course and have played here multiple times before but got off late this last round and only got 16 holes in. Disappointing because they didn't have any carts ready for the 1 o'clock on tee times. Other than that one of the better courses in that area and with a nice online price from MBN.com.
MichaelDate Played: 11/29/2016
Very good overall.
IanDate Played: 11/26/2016
Loved playing this course, each hole was like being on the course by yourself, the starters were well organized and our group of 16 got off without a hitch. Lots of pride taken by staff in making this course an excellent venue.
JerryDate Played: 11/23/2016
We have played at Tradition Club for quite a few years now, and it has consistently been one of our favorites. The staff is always friendly and helpful, especially Bobby, who has become a very welcomed friend over the years. This most recent round of golf was played only about three weeks following Hurricane Matthew, and yet, the course was in great shape. I was told they had lost more than 100 trees on the course, but they had done a terrific job in cleaning things up, and quite frankly, the loss of the trees did not seem to adversely affect the course at all. I also want to commend the Pro Shop staff and the quality of their merchandise. Tradition Club always has an outstanding selection of golf wear, as good as any in the MB area.
MichaelDate Played: 11/09/2016
Overall a good experience. Would definitely play again. Excellent driving range.
BrianDate Played: 11/04/2016

ClintDate Played: 10/21/2016
Course was in ok shape. The course itself had a nice layout. Greens were nice and rolled nice, but very slow. My wife and I had a 5-1/2 hour round. Very disappointing how long it took as we had to wait on every shot. We didn't see a ranger on the course and if he was there, he didn't do his job. Decent course but hard to give a good rating after such slow play.
HeikoDate Played: 10/19/2016
Holes are very good to play for all players
MarkDate Played: 10/15/2016
Considering I played 4 days after Hurricane Matthew, the course was quite good. Lots of fallen trees and debris, but cleanup is underway. Only drawbacks were the amount of fallen leaves and branches made it hard to find your ball at times, especially in the waste bunkers. The sand traps were like concrete from all the rain. I just needed to stay out of them! Was still a great round. I'm sure in a few days the course will be in even better shape.
AnthonyDate Played: 10/04/2016
Due to rain cart path only-understandable but difficult to 18 holes under those conditions-not fun.
KenDate Played: 10/02/2016
Tradition is a good course and offers both challenge and scoring opportunities for any golfer. The staff is friendly, helpful and available all of the time. All of the courses in the area were wetter than anything related to average from the storm named Julia. After 4 days playing in the area under cart path only and wet feet, we were thrilled when Tradition was allowing carts everywhere except 3 holes. It is because the course drains really good because several other courses close by were not letting carts on fairways.
JohnDate Played: 09/27/2016
It was raining and greens were still fairly dry
RandyDate Played: 09/18/2016
Best value for the money of any course in South Myrtle or Pawleys area - played it on a really wet day but can't wait to go back on sunny day. Great shape and great layout go play it.
JeffDate Played: 09/17/2016
Great experience. Course was superb.
FrankDate Played: 09/05/2016
Course was in great shape. The greens were fast and were receptive to approach shots. We enjoyed the variety of challenges that the course offers. A solid mix of longer holes and shorter holes that require strategy from the golfers. Staff was very helpful and friendly from the pro shop to the cart guys and the snack bar staff. Will definitely be back to play this course again.
DauneDate Played: 08/30/2016
Excellent facilities, golf course was in great shape.
PhilipDate Played: 08/11/2016
The water holes were very challenging. The first cut of rough is different grass than they use up north that I'm used to. It's tough to hit through. The course was in great shape and I would play it again.
JasonDate Played: 08/03/2016
Great course very fair for the average golfer, greens good, fairways good. Pro shop attendant was very up beat and seem excited for me to be playing Tradition. Would play again.
DonDate Played: 07/22/2016
Beautiful course, fairways in great shape.
DonDate Played: 07/13/2016
Fun layout, fairways and tee boxes in really good shape. Service was fantastic, fairways and tee boxes were in great shape. Greens are horrible, many bare spots with no grass at all. Very difficult to get a put that was not affected by bare spots. Course needs to consider shutting down to fix their greens. Way too expensive for the condition of the greens. They made an otherwise great experience very disappointing. Will be a while before we play this course again and it is too bad because it is a fun and challenging layout.
MichaelDate Played: 07/07/2016
Greens were terrible worst greens I have ever played on.
TedDate Played: 06/24/2016
Unfortunately I have to post this review. I have played The Tradition Course many times & consider it one of the best tracks on The Strand. The Tees & Fairways are excellent but the Greens are a total disaster. They are currently unplayable & probably should be closed until they can recover ( if they can recover ) they are that bad.
ScottDate Played: 05/22/2016
I always play this course every year and will continue to do so. Course was in good condition. Greens were slowest I played all week so took some getting used to. Cart paths are a bit rough but no big deal...just be careful in a few places. Starter was great...helped me as a single pair up with some guys pretty quickly. Played round in just over 4 hours. See you in the fall!
NathanDate Played: 05/17/2016
Excellent course, the complexities of the greens are superb. Very hard to read, challenging I enjoyed playing here. My four-some all agreed that we will make the trip from Mt. Pleasant, SC to play Tradition again. Pro shop, club house excellent assortment of merchandise and Memorabilia. The staff are accommodating and polite, I enjoyed every second at Tradition!!
HerbertDate Played: 05/17/2016
Made the trip to Pawleys from Mt Pleasant. Nice Course. I'd like to play it again. Greens were soft and fast.
DavidDate Played: 05/08/2016
Front nine play exceptionally slow: approx. 3 hours. Problem was two foursomes who basically told course ranger to stick it. We called for ranger assistance 3 times on front nine.

RonaldDate Played: 04/06/2016
My playing partner had to rent clubs and the pro shop was outstanding on assisting him. Gave him free balls and didn't gouge on rental price. Only thing that would have made it better would be a quicker round of golf. I guess it is to be expected on Sundays :-)
TedDate Played: 03/27/2016
T-Storms were in the forecast so we only played 9 holes. Course is in excellent shape. Started on back nine & when we made the turn the weather was looking bad. Asked for a 9 hole rain check which was no problem from the staff. He apologized for the weather ( not his fault ) Staff very accommodating. Can't wait to go back
WilliamDate Played: 03/17/2016
Great course all around.
TimothyDate Played: 03/14/2016
We played it and had a great time. Staff is friendly and helpful. Some of the greens are struggling but the growing season hasn't really started yet. Great layout, easy holes and tough holes. I told them I enjoyed the day and I'd be back and sure enough 2 days later I was back.

Will never play the course again, if you are a serious golfer stay away. Nice layout, but staff and management are terrible. Waited 30 minutes to tee off on number 10. 4 groups waiting on the tee, two more groups in the fairway. Took over 3 hours to play the back nine, close to 6 hours total. Did not see a single marshall all day. Nice course, too bad so poorly managed.
LibbyDate Played: 11/06/2015
Course in very good condition, we had a great time and look forward to returning.
BenDate Played: 11/01/2015
Greens were different of what I play.
SharonDate Played: 11/01/2015
There had been rain the day before we played so it was cart path only. I think it was because they had overseeded and they did not want carts on the course. We should have been told that before we booked. The course was booked and they came around to tell people to speed up play, really, it was cart path only, they should have considered that when they were booking tee times. It was too costly for playing conditions.
ScottDate Played: 10/16/2015
I was really looking forward to paying the course. The course was in good shape but the pace of play was way too slow. We were 20 minutes late teeing off due to overbooking and the round took almost 6 hours. I would not play here again.

PhilDate Played: 08/21/2015
Tradition is certainly a Golf Club that everyone should select as part of their packages while visiting the Grand Strand area. It is always in great shape for all levels of player. The greens are perfect and usually run from 9.5 to 10.5 on the Stemp Meter. It's one of the last golf courses to go to cart path only as it handles rain very well. Never ponding on the greens. The golf course is manicured beautifully and inviting for every player. It has 5 sets of tees which accommodates every level of play men, women, and kids. All around great place. Try it ......you'll love it.
ClementDate Played: 08/16/2015
Our group plays here often, golf course is always in excellent condition and the staff treats you well.

TimothyDate Played: 07/29/2015
My wife and I played there on a Saturday at 2:30 tee time. The course was in great shape and it wasn't crowded, so pace of play was great. This was one of the nicest courses I have ever played. Well maintained and nice staff. Very helpful with advice from the start of our round. Will defiantly play this course again.

The course was very good. The staff was helpful and all had great attitudes. At the end of our round the cart attendant gave us towels soaked in ice cold water and what appeared to be lavender. It was most refreshing since the temps had topped 90 by the end of our round. This was a great touch!

Wonderful course! Great day for hot weather golfing -- course was in great shape considering the heat wave. The staff is amazing - friendly, helpful and always smiling. The lady in the pro shop was very knowledgeable and so very helpful. This is my favorite course in all of Myrtle Beach - thank you :)

Tradition is always a great club to visit and to play. The layout lives up to it's name and is always inviting. The layout embraces every type of player. The selection of tees are at very good increments and is not burdened with impossible pin placements or super undulating greens. In short, this is a fun golf course for all levels of play. The staff is professional and very helpful. Everything about Tradition deserves high marks. It's certainly one of the best golf facilities on the entire Strand.
MarkDate Played: 06/26/2015
Excellent day for golf, Nice hot weather - golf course was in great shape for this time of year. Glad to see course maintenance is on target. Staff was excellent as always - especially the woman in the pro shop. I love this course and always look forward to playing here.

Tradition is always a favorite. Course is in very good condition! Sale is going on in Pro Shop! Great golf AND shopping ... what could be better?
KristianDate Played: 06/22/2015
The first time I played here I was not impressed, but decided to give it a second chance. I had a very nice experience and the course is much better than last time I played. I also think that I enjoyed my round more because I played the Tournament Tees, it is a much better golf course for the low handicap player from back there. Pro Shop Staff was great. I will be back, nice recovery Tradition!
ThomasDate Played: 06/14/2015
Did not play Tradition because they had just aerated the greens. Golf shop called me two days ahead to let me know and cancel the reservation. Appreciate their doing this as we were driving over 400 miles to get there.
JimDate Played: 06/12/2015
Nice layout, but you have to avoid this course for awhile, as they have lost their greens. Aeration is obviously necessary, but not only did they not inform you when you booked your round that all greens were aerated, there were several bare spots throughout each & every green making it impossible to putt. Every putt bounced and hopped and could not be kept online. Many courses inform you when they aerate and offer special pricing, but Tradition did neither. It's a shame because our group has played, and enjoyed, this course in the past. Hopefully they can recover by the fall.
GeorgeDate Played: 06/07/2015
Course in excellent condition tee to green. Good mixture and variety of holes at Tradition. Lady in pro shop was very accommodating and helpful.

Very unorganized when getting cart. We arrived early in order to putt and warm up but were unable to do so because we waited so long to get the cart.
NateDate Played: 05/04/2015
I have been a grouper leader since 2001 and played many golf courses in the Myrtle Beach Area and The Tradition has topped them all in overall golf experience. We felt welcomed, informed and appreciated from the moment we stepped on the property. (I work at a private Country Club and the Tradition is top notch) The golf course playing condition and aesthetics were a beauty to behold. We enjoyed every aspect of playing golf on what I and the entire group was a must play (repeat) for our group on the next visit to Myrtle Beach. The Tradition Golf Course is ranked as our top pick of the more than 60 courses played. Thanks to an outstanding staff and course management team our experience was quite enjoyable!
DavidDate Played: 04/29/2015
People in golf shop excellent. Starter not there when we arrived and showed displeasure of us taking cart to driving range but no one there to tell us not to. Thought that was not necessary.
JoanDate Played: 04/29/2015
Our group played Tradition Club 2 times in the past month and it is in better condition than any of the other courses we've played in the last 6 months. Staff is very friendly and they also have new golf carts as well! GREAT experience each time we visit this course.
MarkDate Played: 04/29/2015
Golf course is in great shape. Starter was very friendly. Pro shop was very helpful in describing and making the round very enjoyable. He gave us options on ways to enjoy the day. Fine selection of apparel was there for the offering. Greens were in perfect condition and very fast and true. Need to have your A game when putting.
GeorgeDate Played: 04/25/2015
Tradition was in the best shape of any of the courses we played the third week of April. Will be adding this one to the annual list of must plays. Thanks for a great day!
KirkDate Played: 04/25/2015
Loved the course. Great condition even though there had been a lot of rain...course took the rain well. Was even allowed on the fairways. Best round of the week! What was interesting was when I got home I received an email that stated I missed my team time. I thought it was SPAM. However, a couple days later I received 4 rain checks for my groups rounds. I called the course and told them that there was a mistake because I played the rounds and should not have received rain checks. They thanked me for my honesty, and told me to keep the rain checks and come back again. The rain checks will not expire! Great customer service to say the least. I will go back again in October.

Tradition Club is the epitome of golf courses in the Myrtle Beach Area. Conditions of the tee boxes, fairways, and greens were superb! The contrast between the dormant rough and the green areas is a great sight to see. Staff members were professional and friendly. Wonderful experience!
DickDate Played: 02/17/2015
I had the opportunity to play the Tradition Club this past week with the Flounders group,a group of both locals and snowbirds. It was the largest turnout the group has ever had. The individual who runs the group has been able to get us on all the top rated golf courses over the last couple of months. None of those courses come close to the outstanding condition that Tradition is in. Most of them were not even overseeded,the greens on some were painted. The lies on the fairways were so tight it was like hitting off of dirt, or if they were wet mud. Tradition Club overseeded there tees, fairways and greens. The fairways were in such great shape the ball could have been played down with no problem. The day we played the greens were rolling at an 11. They rolled beautifully. Aesthetically the course looked great but more importantly it played great. Why this course is not rated in the top tier of courses in the Myrtle Beach area is a mystery to me. If you're looking to play an enjoyable round of golf on a great course definitely give Tradition a try. You will not be disappointed.
RobertDate Played: 02/15/2015
Great layout, very well conditioned for Winter. Greens were around 11, smooth rolled very true. Bunkers were fantastic, probably some of the best I've played in years. Tees were winter condition, but still very nice, 7 of 10. Fairways were over seeded rye, great conditions. A must play. Will add to the rotation.
TimothyDate Played: 02/13/2015
We had a great day at Tradition. The greens last year were not healthy but this year they are some of best on the Grand Strand. Great layout with varying holes. Not much water that comes into play. I would recommend this course as one of tops at the present time.
PhilDate Played: 02/10/2015
Tradition is always a great golf experience. The golf course is in great shape as usual. If anyone plans to play the Grand Strand courses, they should always include Tradition. Great merchandise in the Pro Shop, well appointed resturant and the staff is always professional and willing to make your experience a good one. Try Tradition, you'll love it !

Golf course is in excellent condition, best of any we played on the south end this trip! Comparable to Caledonia, great variety of holes and views.
EdDate Played: 10/31/2014
The big surprise, cart paths only due to overseeding...makes it real rough on the old timers in our group. Will probably have to eliminate this course on future trips. Other big issue: sand traps, raked with a machine producing flat, hard surface....very difficult to play particularly after they are watered at nite...
TedDate Played: 10/26/2014
The course is very good, but the management is pushy and rude. They expect the average golfer to finish their round in less then 4 hours or less. We were on about a 4 hr. 45 min. pace and they threatened to throw us off the course. The starter had an in your face attitude. His way or the highway. Their mowers were constantly in the way, would not move or stop to let you hit. Bad golf experience all around.
LarryDate Played: 10/26/2014
Golf course was in great shape with very nice greens. Cart path only for overseeding when we played but the staff was well informed and said that was only in effect for a few days. We will return.

I played as a single. Had no difficulty getting a tee time. The course is great. The maintenance crew is doing a great job. Well designed for all levels of players. Pro shop was filled with nice things and reasonably priced. I've played overpriced resort courses at swanky hotels that cost 4x as much or more. This course is an excellent value. Pace of play was fine. I'll come back next time I'm in this area .

Paul and Pat, 8/15/2014 - We enjoyed the course and the staff's attentiveness to our needs. Even though it was extremely HOT that day, there were plenty of opportunities to get hydrated around the course. Looking forward to playing course on our next trip to SC! The golf course is very playable for the average golfer. The layout of the golf course was enjoyable to play.
JimDate Played: 08/11/2014
I have played Tradition on several occasions from 2013 to 2014. I've also played other courses in the area. I love Tradition. The course is friendly as well as challenging. The fairways and greens are always in great shape. The staff is always pleasant and friendly. We enjoy talking to the beverage cart girls. They are friendly and polite. The food is quick and tasty. We always include Tradition when scheduling golf in the Litchfield/Pawleys area. It's a destination golf course. The pro shop is stocked with handsome golf shirts.
KathyDate Played: 08/11/2014
I played golf at Tradition on Sunday, August 10th. Despite the questionable weather, it was wonderful! The greens are in terrific shape, as is the rest of the course. The staff from the Pro Shop to the Grill and the Starter were friendly and helpful. This is my favorite place to play when I am in Pawleys Island. I recommend it to all!
AmyDate Played: 08/08/2014
The course is in great shape. The fairways are pristine and the greens are rolling great. Great lay out and plenty of challenges for any level of golfer. I have played this course multiple times and always enjoy it. The staff at Tradition Club are always great.
KarinDate Played: 07/29/2014
The greens are back! In early June the greens were transitioning from Spring rye grass back to Summer Bermuda grass. The Superintendent and his crew have done a great job conditioning the greens and Mother Nature gets the assist! Course is the best layout on the Grand Strand...challenging but fair.
DickDate Played: 07/29/2014
Played Tradition Club yesterday. The course was in excellent condition. tee boxes and fairways were full and lush. The greens have transitioned from the overseeding last fall to the Bermuda and were rolling great.

MattDate Played: 06/12/2014
Greens are in horrible shape. Not worth $10 to play this course in the condition right now. I've played here for 10 years every vacation and have never seen it in this bad of shape. You are better off playing on a mini golf green then the dirt called greens at this place.
DonDate Played: 06/12/2014
Green fees were too high for the condition of the greens.
RickDate Played: 06/09/2014
The course layout is fun but challenging. The greens are in poor shape - the rye grass seeded in the fall has died out but for some reason the Bermuda greens have not yet sprouted, leaving small clumps of grass separated by dirt. Staff was very helpful and pleasant.

Everyone involved in service were super nice and very efficient. The course was in superb shape compared to other comparable courses in the Litchfield and Myrtle Beach area. Exceptional value...
DickerDate Played: 06/05/2014
I can't say enough good things about this course. I'm a 12 handicap and found this to be a fairly easy course because of it's condition. They do the extra things that make the course a great golf experience, play moved along very well, the greens were amazing, the atmosphere made one feel like you were at Augusta. Everyone from the pro shop, to the starters, and the grounds crew were genuinely polite. The layout created many great holes, #1 a great starting hole, #7 probably the most challenging, and #14 is a great golf hole. A really nice golf experience. Dicker
KennethDate Played: 06/05/2014

MikeDate Played: 04/02/2014
The course was great. Very well taken care of. But what sets this course aside from many of the rest, and we have played them all, is the personal attention received from the staff. It doesn't take any extra time to be nice and our group of twelve was made to feel very welcome. In particular, Karen and John from the pro shop were great. And even more hospital, if that's possible, were Kathleen, Carla, and Kathy from the grill room. This course is lucky to have such a dedicated staff that really gets it relative to customer satisfaction. We will play this course every year when we return to Myrtle Beach.

Wow...this course is in great shape. We just returned home from a 4-day stay in the Pawley's/Litchfield area and this course put the other 3 that we played to shame. It has the best Fairways, Greens, and Staff around. I also really enjoyed the layout and cannot wait to get down there again soon to play it again. We had a bit of rain trouble and had no issues getting a 9-hole rain check. Thanks, Tradition Club for being everything we paid for and more!
JimDate Played: 03/18/2014
Our Flounders group played the Tradition yesterday and found the course to be in its normal, great condition. The greens ran true and fast (but not too fast). Fairways beautiful, waste areas and bunkers very well maintained (I was in several). I have always enjoyed the 18th, a par 4 that may play long, but is only a few steps away from food, beverages,and popcorn in the attractive grill/lounge.

Played with the Flounders Group at Tradition on 3/14/14 and it started out cold and windy but gradually it got warmer. The course was in great shape! We moved along at a good pace. All the staff that I met were very pleasant and helpful. The course was pretty much cleared of all the debris from the big ice storm. I play about three times a week in the area and this course is in the top ten for best conditioned. They even have popcorn in the grill to go along with an adult beverage. My favorite hole is 7, which is a peninsula green. Thanks Traditions, Bigroy
PeterDate Played: 03/18/2014
As a resident of Pawleys Island I recently played the Tradition Golf Club with the Flounders group. While the weather was cool, the course was in fantastic condition. The Fairways and greens were the best I have ever found them to be and the staff was as professional and friendly as always. The tees could have been a little beter but that could be attributed to the amount of play and the cold winter. To anyone planning on visiting the south end of the grand strand for some golf, make sure you book a round at the Tradition Club. Its a fun golfing experience and a great value.

Played Tradition on Saturday March 15th, we found the course in excellent condition and the greens were phenomenal!

This course is in outstanding shape and has a great layout. I played it with the Flounders group and found it to be very enjoyable. My only complaint is that some of the white tees played very long and too much advantage was given to the gold tees.

Great course challenging on almost every hole . Slope for that course from whites seem to be rated low . It plays more like a 134 from the white tees . But enjoyable .

Pro shop had nice offerings of good quality. Course is beautiful and in wonderful condition. Thoroughly enjoyed our play at Tradition and will share our experience with others.

Played The Tradition Club this past weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. The condition of the course was absolutely outstanding. The greens were rolling perfectly. I have been fortunate to play the club quite a bit over the last few weeks and even with the tree damage that occurred in the area the course never looked better. It is one of the best tracks on the Waccamaw Trail. The staff in the shop,at the bag drop,and on the course all do a great job. Look forward to the next opportunity to play this terrific layout.
PatrickDate Played: 03/07/2014
We really enjoyed playing Traditions. Played twice in early March. What I liked most was, as a high handicapper (20+), I found that the course offered me the opportunities to score well, but it also offered challenges for the better golfers in our group. I didn't find any holes that I thought were way beyond my capabilities even if I played well. COurse was in great shape, even in early spring. Staff was very helpful and friendly, both on the course and in the clubhouse. Pro shop had a nice selection of clothes for both men and women - bought a couple of things there. It was a fun and enjoyable day both times we played.

It's always a treat to play a layout like Tradition. It lives up to it's name by resembling the great traditonal golf courses like Winged Foot and Baltusrol. This golf course always in great shape and especially now after all the harsh weather this area has experienced. The greens were in great shape and running true at about 10 on the stemp meter. Played the round in 4 hours 10 mins. What a pleasure!

DickDate Played: 01/28/2014
Had the opportunity to play Tradition twice over the last few days. The course was in outstanding condition, the greens were putting beautifully. A feature of Tradition is that when most courses are cart path only with because of rain Tradition ,with the exception of two or three holes ,is usually drivable which is good for us seniors. Played with a fellow from the upstate yesterday who is here to play in the Tournament for Club Champions and he commented that this is his favorite layout in MB. I totally agree with him.

Played Tradition on Friday January 17th, course is in excellent condition. Beautiful greens rolling good, sneaky fast at times! Lunch in the grill was very timely considering how busy they were.
PhilDate Played: 01/15/2014
I've played Tradition many times and never get tired of this great layout. Always in good shape. One of the very best golf courses on the Strand...........Staff is friendly and helpful. Play well and you will be rewarded on this great track...........play poorly and it will offer up a much higher score in a very subtle way. One of the real gems in the Myrtle Beach area.
JonDate Played: 01/15/2014
Course was in great shape, extremely windy conditions on this day even though the course winds through a bunch of trees. Played difficult to say the least! Pace of play was smooth, played in 4 hours. Enjoyed our day.
TimothyDate Played: 01/10/2014
We played on 1/9/14 and had a good time. They got us out a little early but unfortunately behind a foursome of elderly woman who were quite slow. The staff is friendly and that starts you day of on a good note. The best part of this course is the variety of holes you play. Some are quite easy and some are extremely difficult so it evens out. We will return when we get a chance. The only drawback was the greens. They have been cut very high but apparently they get rolled in general they would just rate as playable.

A professional staff highlighted by an accommodating and pleasant personality named Karin helped to get our day off to the correct start. The course with its interesting fairways and true rolling greens made the golfing part of the day very satisfying. Back to the clubhouse and another friendly greeting from Karin as we entered was appreciated and lacking at most other clubs. The friendly staff and the great food at the restaurant finished off a warm, friendly, and enjoyable day for myself and my friends. Thanks Traditions.
BethDate Played: 12/02/2013
Absolutely gorgeous course, love the layout, lush fairways and fabulous greens. The staff is outstanding. From the moment you step foot in the pro shop you know you will have a wonderful overall experience. By far the pro shop has the best selection of women's golf clothes. I can't say enough about Karin, she is a wonderful representative of your course.

DickDate Played: 11/25/2013
Played The Tradition Club today. The course was in excellent condition both in the playability as well as aesthetically . The course has been over seeded and with the dormant rough it looks terrific. The greens are very receptive and the putting is true. I think Tradition is one of the best layouts on the Waccamaw Trail.
RichieDate Played: 11/22/2013
Course in very good shape, excellent fairways! Lady in pro shop was very helpful.

ScottDate Played: 11/12/2013
5 hour was of golf was the norm for the day. The 8 am tee time finished at 1 pm. The starter and the bag person were making jokes about it. We teed off at 1:04 and made it thru 16 before dark. 4.5 hours for 16 holes. No rangers on the course to speed up play. Their just happy they got your money. There was 1 group 2 holes behind and 1 group a full hole behind the group that was 2 holes behind. Talked to cart person after round, he seemed bothered by it, said to complain inside. There are many places around there to play. Visit them, youll be much happier. The pro shop prior to golf were very friendly and welcoming. Course was in great shape. Sadly to say we won't be back.
JamesDate Played: 11/12/2013

Fairways was great. Windy day to play, required sometimes additional two club on some shots. Only Negative Comment. was not seeing the cart girl more frequently. Seen her on the 2nd hole, and it wasn't until the 17th hole until seen her again.

This is just a great golf course. Lives up to it's name by being a traditional layout with very few surprises. The course is laid out in auch a way that the player can see all of his targets and areas to stay clear of. Interesting and well cared for each and every time I play here. The check in process is smooth and efficient. This club is a gem within all of the golf course facilities available in this golf mecca. First rate.!!!!
HesterferDate Played: 09/09/2013
Played recently! A great total golf experience. Course was in great shape with the back nine being one of the most beautiful in the area. With tee boxes for all abilities and fast greens our group had a perfect day! The Pro Shop offers an excellent selection for both men and women and the staff could not have been more helpful! New Jersey was never like this!

Great all round experience... I recommend Great course, facility and staff. I have played 95% of courses in the area and this is one of my favorites. I have brought 2 different groups of golfers to play here ranging from high handicappers to 8 handicappers to seniors (+70). They all liked the course and the golf experience overall. Plan on playing again.
MichaelDate Played: 09/02/2013
This is our second time playing Tradition. Service is always great, love the layout of the course and the challenges from the greens. The pace of play always seems to be slow at Tradition, but other than that enjoyed the course and will certainly return.
CharlesDate Played: 09/02/2013
Course in great shape tee to green, fairways were exceptional! Staff offers you iced mint towels at the end of round which is a very nice touch.

Always love to play this course. Challenging but fair and always beautiful surroundings.
EdDate Played: 08/20/2013
Tradition Club is my favorite course on the Grand Strand from North Myrtle Beach to Georgetown. The staff is top notch and the course is well maintained. The finishing three holes on both nines are very different but demanding....yet fair. Practice areas are well located and there is little wasted space from green to tee as you traverse the course. My wife is a good player and considers Tradition to be very lady golfer friendly.
PhilDate Played: 08/16/2013
This golf course lives up to it's name. It reminds me of the traditional layouts of Wingedfoot, Baltusrol and Ridgewood up in NJ. There are few surprises and virtually no blind shots on this course. This layout really reflects how well you played. There are no tricked up holes or greens. It's a what you see is what you get in grand fashion. The condition is as good or better than anything on the Strand. Wonderfully groomed........Has a great practice facility and the staff is ready to assist your needs. I just like the feeling of this place.........very very nice.....
TomDate Played: 08/15/2013
Greens were in great shape and they aerated just a week prior. Fairways was perfect as well as the rest of the course.

Tradition's tees, fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Very much enjoyed my day. Have played Tradition numerous times during the winter months and will return during my winter stay. Have always enjoyed the professionalism of the staff. The best breakfast sandwich around.
RobDate Played: 07/25/2013
A very fair test of golf, no tricks or gimmicks! What you see is what you get. Able to hit the driver on every par 4-5 except #9. Greens are in good shape with good speed, a good deal of grain that influences putts. Be prepared to watch putts break uphill. Very well maintained, friendly staff and would definitely come back!
KellyDate Played: 07/18/2013
Played on a very hot day, the iced mint towels available for golfer use is a nice touch and will cool you down. Course was in great shape.
MichaelDate Played: 07/09/2013
Great course layout. Was in great shape just a bit slow on the greens and a few burn spots. Ran out of water on the 12th hole and did not see the cart vendor after the 5th hole. Double teeing made the second tee time of the morning take 5 hours to play. Overall a good experience.
MiltDate Played: 07/04/2013

DarrellDate Played: 07/01/2013
Course was in great shape and drained well after the recent rains. Fairways were excellent, never had to move the ball! Food in clubhouse was better than most other area courses.
TomDate Played: 05/27/2013
The golf course was in terrific shape, some holes are narrow and some are wide. Good variety of holes here with no parallel fairways, we enjoyed this course the most. Excellent practice facility with large practice green for putting and chipping, we came back to the course late in the evening for a putting match after dinner at Quigleys just down the road.
JohnDate Played: 05/20/2013
Golf course was in excellent condition! The greens were quick and very true. This course had the best yardage marking system of any of the courses we've played. We look forward to returning soon! Thank you for a great day.

The course was a little wet, but with all the rain, I thought it was in great shape. Just a bit of winter burn on some of the greens, but still a great place to play!

A description or diagram of the holes would have been helpful. Also, the drop areas for the water hazards were marked with tiny signs that were not noticeable until you got to the green side of the hazard. They should put a sign on the fairway side of the hazard telling you the drop area is up next to the green.

TomDate Played: 04/22/2013
Played on the 18th, and course was in great shape. Greens were so smooth, had a great experience. The three of us were the first off, and actually had to slow down so we didn't catch up to the groups taking off on the other nine. Didn't golf that good, but had a great time.

JohnDate Played: 04/05/2013
I played golf on the course on a terrible rainy day, but I have to say that the course was in great shape and the rain drained off nicely so as not to impede play, too much. The staff could not have been friendlier and the experience was great, even in the rainy environment. I'll look forward towards playing this course on a nice sunny day.
DougDate Played: 04/01/2013
Course was in great shape for this time of year and has a good variety of holes. Tough par three's here from the championship tees!!! They were busy the day we played but the pace of play moved along pretty good considering the number of players on the course.
BarryDate Played: 03/27/2013
GREAT DAY AT TRADITION...Clay has just aerated the greens, and they were rolling the best ever. Despite the cold temperatures, the course always seems to play consistently. The tees, the fairways, and the greens are always in great whenever I have the chance to play here. Beauty and interest surround the course. I will NEVER tire of this first class course. My favorite holes remain #2, #12, and #14. I look forward in returning here next year.

To all at Tradition Golf Club, Our yearly return to Pawleys Island is made special with golfing days at Tradition. Thanks to Kevin and Clay and their committed staff who greet us like family. This marks our 9th year here. Our hats go off to Kevin Williamson who manages the inside workings of the club. His capable and friendly staff all remember us from year to year...Karens warmth and sincerity along with her buying talents for making the Tradition Pro Shop great for women players too, Jim, Frank, and the 2 John's...Then Bobby, Jim, Kevin, Wally, and Buzz plus all the other smiling men at the starter's station, Bob at #12, Clay and all his hardworking staff who work daily to make Tradition a memorable course to play, Charles, your highly committed teaching professional, and Deb in the Grille Room who always greets us with a smile...WOW! This is truly amazing. Yes, my favorite holes remain #6, #12, and #16! We have been fortunate to have watched Kevin Williamson perfect his people and managerial skill to this high level. Hoping the Tradition Golf Club will continue its superior success...Best, Jill Lieberman Saunderstown, Rhode Island

Traditions...Met by a friendly and informative Bag Drop Staff followed by an equally friendly Proshop Staff. Getting a great day of golf started with a quick course briefing from the bag drop staff and sent on our way. The grounds were in great condition with great markers all the way through the course, very easy to read the markers making the course very user friendly. The Grill is staffed with a great group of ladies that are experienced in providing great food with an attention to service. Our group had a mix of salads and burgers all prepared well. The manager Kathy was able to visit with our group asking how our experience was from the cart to the greens and our meals. The beverage cart made at least 5 stops at our group during our round of golf. Overall, I could not find any faults with the operations at Traditions. Thanks for a great round of golf!

Only comment was slow play. Couldn't find ranger, but heard he was taking care of a heart attack victim. Threesome in front of us was giving lessons and allowing the player to hit two of three balls without picking up. you do not give lessons on the course.

Had a chance to play the course last week. Great experience. Four hours for the round, greens and fairways in great shape. In particular I would like to thank the grill room staff, Cathy and ??. We came in late but they accomodated our request with smiles. The lunch was great. All in all the whole Tradition staff made us feel very appreciated. We will be back!
JimDate Played: 03/04/2013

KathyDate Played: 03/04/2013
This is a great very women friendly course! The course is in wonderful condition, despite the not so stellar weather. Our group travels to MB each year from New York and this is always on our top 5 list. The staff from the Pro Shop, Grill and outside attendants were friendly, knowledgeable, and obviously love their jobs and the course. This is a definite Must Play course! I would recommend it to both seasoned golfers and those just starting out. It has something for everyone.
JohnDate Played: 03/04/2013
Seeing we were rained out for Tuesday, Tradition Cub sparkled for us on Wednesday. Only 4 holes were cart path only. They have a well manicured and great draining course. It was number one on our list.

Course drains exceptionally well, played on 2/24 after the rains Friday and Saturday and with the exception of a few spots, the course was dry considering the past two days of wet weather. Greens were rolling good and in great shape too. Beverage cart girl was overly friendly and accommodating. Very woman friendly course, my husband and I play here often.
EricDate Played: 02/12/2013
Our group found the course to be in great shape and we loved the overseeding look with the dormant roughs. Greens were overseeded, rolled smooth, and had good speed, they were not as fast as some of the other courses we played that had painted greens. We enjoyed our day!
CathyDate Played: 02/04/2013

MaxDate Played: 01/31/2013
I played Tradition Club the last weekend of January 2013 in the SCGA Tournament of Champions event. The course was in excellent shape and I thought the fairways were superb. They were firm and allowed you to feel the nice thump when you connected properly with an iron shot. The course is an excellent venue for an event and is very playable for golfers of all skill levels. There were a few bumpy spots on the greens, but they rolled well and were fun to play. All staff members were helpful and friendly.
DarrenDate Played: 01/31/2013
Overseeded tees and fairways in tournament condition, greens were smooth with good speed. Clubhouse and surrounding area has a country club type feel with a well stocked pro shop for both men and women, the women really appreciated the selection available to them, as most golf shops do not cater to the ladies with a good enough variety to choose from. Very friendly ladies tees on this course as well. We look forward to returning to Tradition in the future.
JohnDate Played: 01/23/2013
Our group played the Tradition Club on Saturday, January 19th and had an excellent time. The greens were firm with a medium to light overseeding and had very good speed, not too fast and not too slow. Fairways were in excellent shape as well. Some par threes can play long! Everyone we encountered during our visit to Tradition made us feel like we were at our home club. Thanks for everything.

TimothyDate Played: 01/11/2013
I should have listened to the previous reviewer about the greens. I'm not sure if it's the time of year or if the greens are diseased but they are the worst that I have played in Myrtle for the last 5 years. It's a shame because the layout is great and the tees and fairways are wonderful. The staff was welcoming and friendly but the day gets ruined when you have to putt. The 13th green was layered with grass seed sitting on top and in my opinion was unplayable. This was always a favorite of mine but it's off the list now.
RickDate Played: 12/07/2012
Very nice place. I like the golf course it's always in great shape. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Always have a good time playing this golf course. Nice layout and is taken care of. Good course for all levels of play. If you enjoy a friendly atmosphere and good golf this is the place to play.
RogDate Played: 12/06/2012
This is one of the best golf facilities on the Strand. I've played all the good courses down here and this is definitely in the top 5, quite possibly the top 3. Place is well manicured and ready to play. They have now removed some trees to give some of the greens some breathing room. These people know what they are doing to set up a enjoyable and challenging track. I could play this place over and over. Never get tired of a place that obviously works hard to keep you coming back. Any one needing a fourth player at Tradition, don't hesitate to call me. I'll cancel whatever I have going to get there. The whole place is well run.
DanDate Played: 12/06/2012
I've gotten to play Tradition a few times and I'm never disappointed. Everything about this club and golf course is first rate. Course is always in great shape and its a fun place to play. Hit it good and it will reward you. Hit it bad and you will feel it and so will your score. It's fair but is tough if you don't think your way around the course. I like it a lot ... great golf and nice people who are very accommodating. Try it ... you'll love it.
LenneaDate Played: 12/03/2012
We always enjoy playing this course, as it is so player-friendly. My husband and I are average golfers, and are particularly pleased at the number of tee options available at Tradition. The pro-shop staff is always very friendly and helpful, and the course is always in great condition. We make it a point to play this course every time we visit Myrtle Beach.

WilliamDate Played: 11/14/2012
Prior to booking our tee time I asked if we could expect a round of golf to take less than four and a half hours. Who ever I spoke to said it will take about that time. When we arrived for out tee time there were already two other groups waiting to tee off and the round took over five hours since we had to wait on every hole. We enjoyed the course, but the wait and slow play was a real turn off.
GaryDate Played: 10/21/2012
Course was challenging without being brutal. Very picturesque with variable hole layouts. Long par 3 is fun.

The Tradition Club is a great layout. I fully enjoyed the condition of the course which was first rate. Played quite a bit of golf in Myrtle Beach and this club is one of the top 5. Good staff and well taken care of. Played well and that made it even better. Great condition. Will definitely put it on my schedule to play again. I really enjoyed Tradition.
DickDate Played: 10/19/2012
Since moving to the Myrtle Beach area 5 years ago I've been fortunate to play in a weekly golf group that plays many of the area courses. Of all the courses the one that I enjoy the most is The Tradition Club. It always is in superb condition, it is challenging but fair for players of all levels. It has a great layout. The par 3's are all good, each presenting itself with a distinct look and a great array of club selection. I also find the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The Pro Shop always has a great selection of merchandise and the staff is very knowledgeable. When my friends come down from MA. for there yearly visit they always request to play at Tradition, and I am only happy to set it up.
DanDate Played: 10/19/2012
Tradition has been one of my favorite golf courses for years. You can always depend on professional treatment and a great track of golf. It's a fair test for just about any level of player depending on tee choice. I really enjoy this well manicured place every time I get the chance to play it. One of the better places in the MB area.
VirginiaDate Played: 10/19/2012
Tradition is a lovely club. It is well appointed and the clubs staff was very professional and willing to see to all our needs. The bag drop and Pro Shop staff were very embracing and eager for us to have a good time. Nice people. The golf course is spectacular and I appreciated the position of the red tees which were located at competitive locations but played fairly. It was great to spend a beautiful day at this beautifully done golf club. I'm definitely looking forward to playing it again. Loved the place!
BobDate Played: 10/18/2012
A great course to play in South Carolina. The driving range and putting areas are top notch. A must play while on vacation. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. The course was well maintained and a challenge. The layout, tees, fairways and greens are excellent. Great merchandise selection in the pro shop. The food and beverage service in the snack bar was great as well. The whole clubhouse atmosphere is very enjoyable. I will play the Tradition again.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing Tradition. The conditions were wonderful. Best fairways and bunkers on The Strand. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Attn: Kevin Williamson, golf pro at Tradition. On Sept. 28, 2012, I had 8 golfers to play Tradition. This was the 7th or 8th time we played tradition in the past 10 years. We have been together for 29 years, always playing golf at the beach the last week of Sept. We typically play 5 rounds and determine the next year's courses based on the quality of the current years courses and how we are treated. I can say without any hesitation, all 8 golfers were highly impressed with the quality of the course and just as impressed with the pro shop staff, bag staff and pace of play. Congratulations on putting together a superior team that takes great pride in treating non members as if they were members. We look forward to future rounds at The Tradition.
FrankDate Played: 10/16/2012
The Tradition Golf course is in terrific condition. The fairways are lush and the greens are firm and fast. There are numerous challenging holes no matter which set of tees you choose to play. The staff members we met were very friendly and helpful in making the day an enjoyable experience for our group. We will definitely return to play here again.
P.Date Played: 10/16/2012
I've played the Tradition Club a number of times and always enjoy the superb condition of the tees, fairways, greens and bunkers. The golf course is a great layout for everyone who enjoys the game. The friendly and professional assistance of the club's staff is as good as any facility on the Strand. It's a club that you can depend upon for a quality experience. Very well done!

Interesting variety of holes.

BillDate Played: 10/08/2012
Nothing real special.
PeteDate Played: 09/27/2012
Played this course (and others) in July 2012 and it was spectacular. I would rate this course in the top 10% of the courses in the Myrtle area. Love the cool mint towel.
BillDate Played: 09/15/2012
I like the layout.
FredDate Played: 09/13/2012
Good course for first round ... It was more open and fair.
P.E.Date Played: 09/07/2012
A great course to play in South Carolina. The driving range and putting areas are top notch. The layout, greens, fairway and tees are excellent. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. The pro shop had great merchandise, prices and selection. The food and clubhouse are great. A must-play course for the price in South Carolina.
PhilDate Played: 07/24/2012
Loved the cold mint towels.
JohnDate Played: 07/23/2012
There was a great deal of course maintenance going on during my round. I was treated to the sound of chainsaws and machinery as trees were removed. Also, on several tees I had to wait while a mower completed its pass.
GeorgeDate Played: 07/23/2012
The staff was great. The course had a lot of waste bunkers which made it unique to me. The greens where slow compared to the course I played earlier in the week.
MaxDate Played: 07/17/2012
Have you played Tradition lately? What a nice place on the south side-Pawleys Island. The staff could not be better. I must give a special thanks & acknowledgement to the Pro Shop Staff and Karin. The outside staff Bobby and cart lady Kathy are always ready to serve. These folks made my experience in very hot conditions great. The cold towels are a great idea.
JonDate Played: 07/05/2012
A must-play while on vacation. From the time I arrived to the time I left my experience was outstanding. The staff was friendly and helpful, while the course was well maintained and a challenge.
DavidDate Played: 07/03/2012
Really enjoy playing Tradition. One of my favorite courses on the Grand Strand. Multiple holes on the course make it a real challenge. Holes such as 3, 4, 11, 12, 14, & 16 are just awesome. Starter really helpful as were the pro shop staff. No cart girl was evident. Didn't see one all day. I will play Tradition again and again. Thanks!!!
SteveDate Played: 06/25/2012
I would have liked to know that there were huge patches on the greens, to the point where you could not putt through them and accurately guess where the ball would come out. The patches had dried out and were in worse condition the the rest of the greens.
LarryDate Played: 06/13/2012
We have played here before and will be back. This year it had just been aerated and so was not in the best condition but that is to be expected. Would like to know ahead of time if a course is being aerated before booking online in advance if possible.
DrewDate Played: 06/10/2012
Would have liked to know that the greens were recently aerated and covered with sand and that the driving range was closed for maintenance. No refreshment cart was ever seen.
JamesDate Played: 05/18/2012
The greens are just plain awful. The layout is great and the majority of the rest of the course was in good shape but the greens are atrocious. Will not be returning.
JacquelineDate Played: 05/17/2012
We enjoyed our round.
KerryDate Played: 05/17/2012
Someone has apparently fallen asleep at the maintenance wheel. The greens are in poor condition and in need of a superintendent actually inspecting the course. This is not transition problems. Worst overall conditioned course I have played on in the Strand.
BillDate Played: 05/16/2012
Love the layout.
JamesDate Played: 05/15/2012
The greens were terrible and I would not go back because of their condition.
FredDate Played: 05/13/2012
Course was in great condition! Quiet setting! Holes were nicely spaced! Slow play lessened the experience but it happens!
GenieDate Played: 05/13/2012
Did not like the greens.
ToddDate Played: 05/13/2012
The pace of play was too slow. You shouldn't start groups off the back nine if it's going to cause a log jam for the groups making the turn. Greens are slow and in poor shape.
DominicDate Played: 05/09/2012
The greens were almost unplayable, areas of dirt and must have had a fungus - it was great last year and a nice course but not worth playing this year.
MarkDate Played: 05/08/2012
Good course, not great. Starters were rude. Greens were in pretty bad shape. However, the layout of the course was fun and the pace of play was excellent.
MarkDate Played: 05/07/2012
GaryDate Played: 04/29/2012
First played this course in 2011. It was great then and great in 2012. Choose AM tee times or you will be stuck with the local ladies in the PM.
VaughnDate Played: 04/26/2012
I liked the course layout. My favorite was the par 3 15th island green. The staff were very informative on the course layout and condition. Very fun day, happy birthday to me.
GeorgeDate Played: 04/26/2012
Staff was super friendly. Gorgeous track. Spectacular facility. What's not to love? Next trip down I plan to play Tradition and Willbrook more than once. Why play elsewhere?
JamesDate Played: 04/24/2012
We lost a club and we received a follow-up call informing us that Traditionshad the club and would hold for us. They were genuinely concerned about our loss.
JohnDate Played: 04/24/2012
The course was beautiful. Each hole was unique and memorable. My buddies and I are still talking about it. In fact, it was so good we went in the pro shop to buy something to remember the course and the folks behind the counter were great. We will return next year.
DarrenDate Played: 04/20/2012
Fun, very playable course. Greens were perfect & easy to read (a nice change after the severe greens at TPC & Heritage). Tees, fairways & staff were all very good. Ranger & starter were very personable & helpful. We will definitely play this on our next trip.
GerryDate Played: 04/19/2012
Very friendly staff. The course was in great shape the grounds staff is doing great work.
KathleenDate Played: 04/18/2012
The course was in great condition and the staff was very friendly. In fact, my friend lost her cell phone during the round and they found it and brought it to us before we were finished!
LyleDate Played: 04/17/2012
JasonDate Played: 04/17/2012
Great condition - best greens in Myrtle Beach area! Very rude ranger on front nine - pace was slow yet he jumped our case. He later gave half-hearted apology but it sort of ruined our experience.
RobDate Played: 04/15/2012
Back nine in worse condition than front, but overall greens were excellent.
Kent/TheresaDate Played: 04/03/2012
Spent entire 'golf' part of vacation week in Pawleys/Litchfield end ... played Tradition(2x), River Club(2x), Willbrook and Litchfield ... all were in very good shape (dormant rough).
MaryanneDate Played: 04/01/2012
Fun course, lots of sand and water. Staff and pro shop cordial and helpful.
DonDate Played: 03/30/2012
<p>Tradition topped our list of the three MB courses we played, over Willbrook by a small margin and Wachesaw East by a considerable amount. The service staff was courteous and friendly at the bag drop area. (Interestingly, at completion of play, no one offered to clean our clubs. Instead, we were waved through the staging area to our van in the parking lot.) The clubhouse was beautiful, and the greens huge with undulations that resulted in more than a few 3-putts. <p>Power carts are a must, as it would be a LONG walk with holes set so far apart. Buy the yardage book, as a few holes require you to position your tee shots accurately. It is a great layout (by Ron Garl). One unusual feature is the waste bunkers along the fairways which become regular bunkers near the green. Signs indicate where to drive your cart, and where to begin raking the sand. Be careful also of the island green par 3, especially if the pin is at the front of the green. Four-putting is embarrassing! <p>All in all, this is a course I'd enjoy playing every day. You will love it!
WilliamDate Played: 03/30/2012
Awesome course, love the bet on the par 3.
EddieDate Played: 03/30/2012
One of the best courses I have ever played. I did not feel rushed and the staff was very helpful. I will play here again!
JillDate Played: 03/28/2012
Not only did we enjoy a perfect round of golf on Sunday (3/25) at Tradition, but thanks to Karin Beaupre, I was also able to buy some great new golf outfits. Karin obviously has researched the most appropriate golf attire for women. She has filled the Tradition shop with an incredible array of golf clothing. This shop far surpasses any of the other area clubs. Karin carefully suggested certain styles that would be good for me. Thanks to her patience, I was able to buy the newest of golf clothes available. She definitely knows the up to date trends for men and women. I appreciated her help and honesty. Tradition Golf Club offers everyone South Carolina golf at its finest. An exceptional golfing experience in every way!
DonDate Played: 03/22/2012
As a winter resident of the area, I am constantly amazed at the extremely high level of course condition they maintain at Tradition. I am past president of a well-known Connecticut club (Tillinghast design), but I can say that Tradition is kept at a higher level of condition than my own club. My golfing guests always put it at the top of the requested clubs we play when they visit. It is an excellent course.
WilliamDate Played: 03/19/2012
All was good, our favorite course of the trip.
DanDate Played: 03/18/2012
Clubhouse staff was very helpful ... Starters were very polite & helpful. The greens and fairways were great for March.
EricDate Played: 03/16/2012
Everything was top-notch. Staff was friendly and helpful. Course was in great condition. Some of the holes really force you to have a smart strategy or pay for the result of not having one. Play was a bit slow in the early going on our morning round on Wednesday; a little more spacing between groups would have been helpful.
JillDate Played: 03/16/2012
The condition of this course can't be beat! We've been coming down to SC for 9 years and Tradition is our favorite track! You won't find a better golf course down here.
NancyDate Played: 03/16/2012
Nice course. Friendly.
CarlDate Played: 03/16/2012
I thought we had the first tee time, instead they let some locals go out before us. Because of that and the fact they started people on 10 - it was a slow round (5 hours) even starting at 7:30 a.m.!
BarryDate Played: 03/16/2012
Wow! This course is in great condition! We've been playing this course for the past 9 years and it's ALWAYS in great shape. The best down here!
JillDate Played: 03/16/2012
We sincerely wish to thank Kevin and Clay for continuing the high standards that make Tradition outstanding. The entire staff enjoy working there, and everyone treats us like family. Deb and Sue are always there with smiles and good food, too! The course has improved in its greens, fairways, and bunkers since we started playing it in 2002. And thanks to Clay, the beauty of the tee boxes is outstanding as well. Tradition has a park-like setting showing which makes it a cut above all the others. We love all of our rounds and our yearly visits.
ZacharyDate Played: 03/11/2012
Amazing golf course, no complaints about anything.
TimothyDate Played: 01/24/2012
We played 1/23/12. In general the course is in good shape. Some of the greens are suffering a bit. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course because it plays easy and has some unusual holes. I would play again.
F.J.Date Played: 01/09/2012
We (24 + golfers) didn't go back last visit because of the marshalls being so officious. Great course to grip it and rip it, which is what we play as a four ball. Apparently we're booked again to go back to The Tradition this spring ... all I have to say is ... oh boy!
KenDate Played: 12/02/2011
I played Tradition on the 29th of November, they'd had 2 inches of rain the night before. Very little pooling in the fairways and the greens were immaculate. The wide fairways allowed my errant fades (slices) to always find a playable area. I will come back.
DaveDate Played: 11/30/2011
Played here in early November 2011 and other than the fact four holes were cart path only because of wet conditions, I enjoyed my day. Not being able to walk long distances because of an upcoming knee replacement did not hinder the fun. Wished they would have made handicap cart available. Would love to play here again.
QuinnDate Played: 11/28/2011
Very helpful starters. Not crowded or rushed. Courses were littered with cigarette and cigar butts on the fairways! Would have liked to know that they charged for range balls.
DonnieDate Played: 11/25/2011
(Would like to have known prior to play) that greens had just been sanded.
JoeDate Played: 11/22/2011
Course not up to their standards. Has been better in past years.
JoeDate Played: 11/01/2011
Would be a nice course but they were overseeding last week. Was not mentioned when I called the day prior to our tee time that they were overseeding and that the course was cart-path only. Will give it another shot later.

JimDate Played: 10/11/2011
Loved this course. Site, service and the course were all excellent. We did the round with breakfast, lunch and two beers. Breakfast was a small but excellent buffet and lunch was any choice from their menu. Course was in excellent condition and we played in about 4 hours 15 minutes. One of the first courses I would return to play.
LisaDate Played: 09/24/2011
It was wet but I will be back ... great track.
MarkDate Played: 09/20/2011
The Tradition Club truly is a hidden gem on the Grand Strand. We played Tradition Club on 9/19/11. It was the second time we have played it on our annual golf week to Myrtle Beach, and to a person it is our favorite course. Surprisingly, the course was not crowded. The course was immaculately groomed and is challenging, while not being ridiculously difficult. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We are going to book it twice next year! I urge you to make the short drive to Pawleys Island and discover a truly great course in the MB area, you will not be disappointed.

IanDate Played: 09/08/2011
I played the course on Sept. 2 and liked it so much I brought a buddy to play again on the 3rd. The course is in great shape, the greens roll well and are fair. The staff was outstanding. It is a course that those of all handicap levels can enjoy.
JimDate Played: 09/07/2011
Excellent customer service from pro shop to starter. Course conditions were excellent. Greens were in fabulous shape and rolled great. Some very unique holes with bunkers from tee to green that you were allowed to drive the carts in.
ScottDate Played: 08/27/2011
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was in excellent shape. I found the course to be straightforward and very playable. I am a more experienced golfer than my father who played with me, but he found the course forgiving and easier to play than some of the other courses in the area. I definitely would play this course again.
MarcelDate Played: 08/27/2011
Interesting layout. Good condition. And I like the speed of the greens. I will come back again to Myrtle Beach.

Course in good shape, nice open fairways, but lots of sand to play around.
AndrewDate Played: 08/16/2011
This course is in excellent shape despite how hot it's been this summer. Not burned up at all. Greens in very good shape. Have played here before and will definitely return in the future.
RonDate Played: 08/08/2011
I liked the variety of holes. The use of strategic sand and water made shot placement important. I saw three whitetail deer on the course. There was a lot of sand on the greens which made putting a little difficult today.
BernardDate Played: 08/06/2011
It was a very hot day and the staff at Tradition took care of the little things such as cold, wet towels, made sure we had plenty of water - not to mention the course was in great shape. The layout is awesome for those who choose to play in the summer. We always seem to find plenty of shade driving from hole to hole and at every tee box - not to mention the layout is great for all handicaps.
DeonDate Played: 08/01/2011
Just a good overall time playing the course.
CDate Played: 07/29/2011
Was amazed the range was closed on a Wednesday morning for cutting. Very odd decision and very disappointing we could not warm up properly. Ever considered cutting mid-day on a not-so-busy day of the week?
JasonDate Played: 07/06/2011
Everything was very nice. Selection at grill could have been better and maybe a way to call in the order prior to getting to the grill. Tee boxes could have been a bit more level.

I would like to have known that the greens had been aerated the week before. But the good thing was we played in 3.5 hours because no one was on the course.

EdwardDate Played: 11/28/2010
The course was in good shape but some fairways retained a lot of water. Staff was very friendly. There was a log jam on the back nine which had a 15 minute wait on each hole that turned into almost a 5-hour round. They seemed to not enforce pace of play rule.
ChristinaDate Played: 11/22/2010

Our first Myrtle Beach experience. Most enjoyable. Very usable Nike rental clubs- LGC? Good briefing by starter.
GlenDate Played: 11/10/2010
Reseeding of fairways (cart path only); didn't have enough carts which caused a 40-min. delay for a 2 p.m. start time, which meant we couldn't complete our round before dark. Pace of play was very slow (5.5 hrs.); wasn't real happy with the experience.
PeteDate Played: 10/27/2010
Bermuda greens were cut way too high. There was no roll to any putts. Would have been better to putt with a wedge!
GerryDate Played: 10/25/2010
Puzzled by the recent comments about the greens. They look like they were just overseeded, and are rolling just fine. Course overall is in very good shape.
MattDate Played: 10/20/2010
I was misinformed by Litchfield staff when arranging for myself and my brother to arrive two nights earlier than the Scherr golf group (a golf group that comes to MB every year) on Oct 2. I requested tee times at Tradition Oct. 3 and was told they were going to be included in the total cost quoted me, which was $282. When I checked out I was charged for the green fees at Tradition. I was told by your staff that wasn't included in the price quoted. I remember repeating back to whoever it was the price and asked if the golf was included and was told it was indeed included. Too bad I didn't get his name, all I remember it was during the day and and was sometime two weeks before my arrival, Oct 2. This the 2nd year in a row we played Tradition, other than being charged twice for tee times, I love the course.
PolkDate Played: 09/27/2010
Challenging, but not punishing. It was a fun course to play. It was in great shape. The staff was very friendly.
JohnDate Played: 09/24/2010
Never having played the course before it was difficult to know the distances to hazards and other points of reference. Providing more info on course distances to players will improve the pace of play and improve golfer's experience.
RogerDate Played: 09/20/2010
Environmental conditions that a course cannot control, such as dry weather, and fall overseeding made course conditions on some fairways a little less desirable.
LarryDate Played: 09/20/2010
It took 5 1/2 hours to play ... course was crowded and slow!
SondraDate Played: 08/24/2010

KyleDate Played: 08/16/2010
The pro shop and starter were very pushy about us going out before our tee time, when we wanted to hit golf balls first.
RogerDate Played: 08/14/2010
Great design. Wide fairways. Very fair test of golf skill.
JasonDate Played: 08/10/2010
Excellent layout. Condition of the course was outstanding. Really enjoy the staff and the attention you receive when you play here. We talked about it, and decided one of the few things left for Tradition to do to improve the experience would be to add GPS to the carts. This is a favorite course for me to play in S.C.
FrankDate Played: 07/13/2010
Nice course, enjoyed it.

Payton34everDate Played: 05/21/2010
Great course layout and the fairways and greens in good condition. The tee boxes, espeically on front 9, need some major help. I enjoy playing this course and will be back.
CraigDate Played: 05/20/2010
Course was very enjoyable. Well manicured and a very nice mix of challenging holes while still being very playable. Was disappointed by the very slow pace of play. Otherwise would definitely return for another round.

Okay golf course & experience. Attendants appeared disorganized & gave a don't care attitude.

This is a great course, well worth the money, great feel and in great shape.
AngieDate Played: 05/11/2010
Loved the fairways. Very relaxed. Tee times spaced out so that we weren't rushed.
DanDate Played: 04/27/2010
We liked this course so much on Monday, we played it again on Thursday. The staff and course were excellent. If we had one complaint, it was that it's hard to find a flat area on the tees, but they were generally good otherwise.
AlanDate Played: 04/23/2010
The pro shop staff and starters were very cooperative about getting us out early because we had a plane to catch. They even waved us through on the turn. Course was very good condition considering time of year.
RichardDate Played: 03/31/2010
This turned out to be total drudgery. The front nine took three hours which was happily followed by only two and one half hours on the back. I asked for a refund or at least something to make up for the misery but to no avail. I didn't see how a thirty percent discount on merchandise was going to make up for it. Better off spending less at Golf Galaxy.
RichardDate Played: 03/15/2010
That you have split tee times, this is only a money make for you and not customer friendly!!! We had to wait 20 minutes to play the back nine, because we played the front nine to fast? Really!!! I have not found split tee time in any other state i have played, and will not come back t MB for this reason!
PaulDate Played: 03/07/2010
Excellent. Very courteous!
BenDate Played: 01/10/2010
The Tradition Club this year wasn't up to what I have played there in the past. The greens on one nine were not up to par with the overseed.
PhilDate Played: 12/07/2009
Another great course.

I liked the length, layout, and condition of the course. My wife is a beginner, and she was grateful for the forward tees.
