Pace of play was an issue. We had four groups ahead of us and two of those groups were fivesomes. At $29 for a six pack of beer$$$ The course it's self was great. One of the holes on the Open side, had an issue with it's green, some kind of fungus. It is a nice setup, and I would probably play again with friends who haven't played it before. Having to wait on every single shot because we had a fivesome in front of us was a little upsetting.

This is a great layout.The course is setup to resemble some of the most famous golf holes in the world. Some of the holews you can find out here for example are number 18 at St. Andrews as well as Amen corner from Augusta National. The condition is remarkable and the staff is very friendly. I would recommend this couse as one of the best vacation courses that i have ever been to..If you love golf you have to check this place out it is really cool

This was my favorite course that we played on our recent golf exodus to Myrtle Beach. The first and ninth holes were reminiscent of 1 and 18 at St Andrews. The par threes are fun and not overly long. Amen corner was fun. Staff were excellent. We did not have a problem with pace of play until we got to about the 14th hole when it got a little slow but not bad for a vacation course. Definitely would play on our next trip to MB.
