Myrtle Beach - Mid April - Course Evaluation?

Recommended Posts

Been getting some quotes on various packages, one that seemed to have a decent price was for a round at the following 4 courses.  Can anyone with first hand experience give me a quick review?

Indigo Creek
Pearl West
Pearl East


International Club

The two Pearl Courses are pretty good. I haven't played the other two, but from everything I've read and reviews of friends who have played them they are not anywhere near the top courses in Myrtle Beach. There are seevral threads here about MB courses. The best "bang for the buck is to get a package from the legends group. They have 5 courses to choose from and include breakfast, lunch and two beers. All 5 of their courses are very good and the green fees are quite reasonable. For rveiews of MB golf courses check out Myrtle Beach Golf Talk at this link. http://www.myrtlebeachgolftalk.com/tabid/111/aff/3/Default.aspx Then get a quote from Brian Noblin who runs that site.

I played the International club last year. i won't be in any hurry to go back. if was fine and you will not have a bad round but it is pretty much uninspiring...the only i remember about it is 3 putting on 17 and 18 to shoot an 80...WTF.

there are many better options if you keep looking.

I just booked a package for Master's weekend....

We are playing:

April 7 : Carolina National (27 Holes)

April 8 : The Pearl West & East

April 9 : Rivers Edge

81 holes in 3 days!

Packaged with a condo at Oyster Bay, worked out to $280 per person, for four of us.  I thought this was a hell of a deal.  Let me know if you would like me to refer you to the package company.

I'll take you up on the offer to share the company you got that package from, please.  I'm planning a fall trip with a friend.  Would it be more expensive in the fall (Sept or Oct) than the spring in MB?  Just curious.  Thanks for sharing and have a great trip in April.

^ Sure thing.  I worked with Jordan @ Fore-Travel.  www.fore-travel.com  She was a great help to us in answering questions and making sure we got the most for our money.  I would heartily reccommend using her to book your trip.  To be fair, another good person to use is Brian Noblin at www.golfdesk.com   There are plenty of other packagers out there, but I would definitely start with Jordan or Brian.  If they can't do it, no one can.

As for trip timing, Mid March thru Early May and Mid Sept. thru October are the peak seasons for MB golf.  Peak meaning most expensive, however you will be rewarded with the best conditions.  September is on the fence.  Early Sept. is more summer like, so it is cheaper, but you'll still deal with 90 degree days.  Late Setember is better weather wise, but starts to become more expensive.  I believe over all, the spring is most expensive.

Outside of timing, it obviously depends on the package you choose.... courses, lodging, meals, etc all can drastically change the pricing regardless of the time you actually go.

To start exploring, go check out www.golfholiday.com  This will give you a taste.  I love MB, I lived there for a few years and got to know it well.  Let me know if I can help anymore!

Thanks, SeaWolf.  Much appreciated.  I tried to relocate our family down to MB in 2003.  That didn't work out.  Long story........

    • When I am feverish and have the flu or flu like symptoms my concentration level and patience goes as close to zero as possible.  However, a head cold with no muscle aches and I can make it through.  About 20 years back I hurt my right knee over swinging on the range (turned out to be a torn meniscus) but I was determined to play.  I could put very little weight on my right side and my follow through had a step forward like Gary Player.  I played an excellent round (for me) and although I did not crush the ball I stayed in the fairway on almost every shot.  Needless to say I played no golf for the next 8 weeks to let the tear heal. Great round by the way!
    • So just wondering......do ALL sets of tees have slope and Course ratings? Or would you still keep that to a select few tees?
    • Being a member somewhere?  I'd hate that, variety is what makes this game so much more satisfying.  That said, if I have the chance to just get in a quick weekday round, or am stuck at home and suddenly feel like I want to play, I tend to go to one of 5 courses between 20 and 30 minutes away. I've decided on and driven on the same day even as much as 4 hours there and 4 hours back just to get a round in somewhere I'm interested in.
    • There only one course (Cascades, a full-length 9 hole course that is part of Crystal Springs) in my area that has "green" tees which are for juniors, novices, or people that just cannot drive the ball more than 160-170. The LongLeaf system sounds great and I believe it could be done with a minimum of investment but I do not see it happening with the exception of resort courses (which is where the green tees are in my region).  Why?  My guess is that course operators look at it as more on-going maintenance in addition to an initial investment.  I believe it would be worth it by bringing out more golfers while keeping up with the pace of play. 
    • Congrats on a great round, especially when suffering with the flu. I am on day 6 with the flu (diagnosed), and now know that death is probably not a bad thing.  I put down a 40' X 80' yard full of sod by myself. I was spent. Putting it down was not too bad, but I had to carry each piece from the font yard. I was maybe 35 at the time.  I had just sat down to admire my work with my favorite beverage in hand. My phone rang, and it was a good friend calling saying they needed a short stop for their men's soft ball team. I tried every excuse I could muster to not go. His friendship finaly got me to the field, which is when I found it was double header.  Long story short, l played as perfect a two games as one could ask for. No errors. Turned several double plays. Went 10 for 10 batting, with  4 of those going over the LF fence.  Spent the next couple of days in major muscle pain.
