But before you pick the courses in your package, get the latest intel on local courses by the people who know best – the ones who most recently paid to play the layout. Here’s a look at the top course reviews from Fairway Insider:
Aberdeen Country Club: This North Strand layout received rave reviews this spring, including one golfer who was “absolutely floored by the immaculate course conditions. … Greens smooth & true, fairways and tees straight pure. Absolute steal for the rates they charge, and the staff was phenomenal as well. A++ experience.”
Arrowhead Country Club: This 27-hole facility was cited by one reviewer for being “exceptionally well manicured” and “a fair test, allowing the golfer to use most of his clubs.” He added that Arrowhead “should be added to anyone’s list looking for a good golfing experience.”
Caledonia Golf & Fish Club: This popular Pawleys Island plantation course is at the top of almost everyone’s list, including the Top 100 lists of Golf Week and Golf Magazine. But one reviewer let us know that the course is in tip-top shape heading into spring. “Course was in great condition considering time of year.”
Crow Creek: This North Carolina layout recently received five stars for playability. “This course is in GREAT condition. Tee, fairways and greens are really good. The ball really rolls on these new greens. Best course in the area at this stage of the season.”
Founders Club: This Pawleys Island course is as well-maintained as it is well-designed, according to one reviewer. “The conditions were spot on. Any negative reviews you hear about this course come from high handicappers who can’t hit a sand shot. … Anyone who knows a lick about golf and golf course design will appreciate this track.”
Grande Dunes Resort Club: One recent reviewer gave the Grande Dunes five stars, but cautioned to brush up on your putting. “Better have your putting game in shape cause these greens are beautiful and fast. Fairways and tee boxes were excellent.”
Litchfield Country Club: One rookie reviewer gave an honest assessment of this South Strand course. “First time playing Litchfield. The golf course was in excellent condition and the staff (members) were A1. Not my favorite layout for me, (too many doglegs) but all in all a hell of a deal for the course quality.”
Man O’ War Golf Club: Like the horse that serves as the course’s namesake, it’s all about the pace to one recent five-star review. “The greens were smooth and running at a nice medium pace, but were very firm … full iron shots were leaving only small dents and taking big first hops.”
Pine Lakes International Country Club: “The Granddaddy” made a true believer out of one recent visitors from Arizona. “This course can compete with the clubs I played out in the Eastern side of Phoenix. Well manicured greens and the fairways were like playing off a plush carpet.
TPC Myrtle Beach: One recent reviewer had high praise for TPC. “Save for Caledonia, this is the top course in the Myrtle Beach area. Immaculate conditioning for a course that sees so many rounds played. … Best greens I have played in MB area.”
