I am going on a family trip to MB in April, and am looking for some suggestions. Will probably only get to play a couple of days while there and am looking for courses in the North Myrtle, Cherry Grove, Little River, Calabash areas. It will be myself and my dad playing and looking for courses that are nice, but not too expensive. It has been several years since I played at Myrtle and the last time I played Heather Glen and Possum Trot. They were OK, but looking for something different. Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi- some very nice courses in that area are - The farmstead , Crows creek, Any of the Cats courses Tigers Eye-Lions Paw-
Aberdeen and two ocean cources Oyster Bay and the Pearl.
You said no too expensive and all these are mid price courses. Price does depend alot on the time of year and if you play in the afternooon it is cheaper.
I have played the ones you played and all these are nicer then them, although i do like possum trot for a fun round.
Give these a try and i think you will enjoy them
My top five in the North end of MB including Brunswick County, NC are
Rivers Edge and Oyster Bay have some pretty marshland scenery so would be the most different in style from Heather Glen and Possum Trot. They are also the best bargains, so those 2 would be good choices.
After that my next five are
Bald Head Island
The Pearl courses have pretty low green fees.
Other lower priced choices would be
Sea Trail Jones
I haven't played too much north, but Thistle is always a great course. As long as it's not cart path only. Played there once and it was cart path only, which made it a miserable, hot round. I would have been better off grabbing my push cart out of the trunk, but they wouldn't allow that.
