Just came back from my annual week of golf in Myrtle Beach and found a new favorite course that's actually affordable. This year we had to play courses that were a bit cheaper because of financial problems with a couple in our group, so we picked the average courses: Wild Wing Avocet, Waterway Hills, etc.
But playing these more affordable courses, we stumbled on a jewel. Aberdeen Country Club was a great course. Good fast greens, lush fairways, and the course was a challenge for everyone. The staff was very friendly as well. Pace of play was excellent, which is abnormal at Myrtle Beach. We actually played 36 holes there we liked it so much. In fact, the course was so empty on the 2nd round that we didn't see another golfer on the back 9 at all. It was a truly enjoyable experience and will go on my "must play" list for next year.
The most disappointing for the week was Man O' War. The water levels were really low, so it wasn't visually appealing at all. The greens weren't in great shape compared to the other courses, and the rough was PGA Tour style thick Bermuda, which made even finding a ball in the rough difficult.
