Carolina Shores Golf & Country Club
Sad, sad, sad.
After reading many reviews I thought I would take a chance on this course at a discount rate. I played 2 days in a row. The course is like a swamp. There is casual water everywhere. Of course, it was cart path only and I understand that given the conditions, but there hasn't been THAT much rain around here to justify all the casual water. The tees were mushy and muddy. The fairways were mushy and muddy. The greens weren't bad except for several being overrun with poa annua grass. The bunkers were mostly mud. I can understand why several have listed the carts as junk. Given the condition of the cartpaths I wouldn't invest in new carts either. The cartpaths were a combination of broken asphalt, tree roots and mud puddles. I don't know what is going to become of this golf course, but it needs a lot.

was not pleased with the course at all. there was no grass on the tee boxes or even any signs that there ever was. the fairways were just so-so, the greens were good and quite fast, i felt the cost was on the high side for the condition. the bunkers were compacted down and you could walk on them and not leave a foot print.

Poor Way to Start a Vacation
Although we were extended the local green fee rate, that price was too high for this course. The cart paths need major maintenance work. The carts are old, the rain covers were ripped. The greens were barely playable as they have allowed tufts of grass to grow making putting like a game of shuffleboard. The layout was fine, it may have been a nice course years ago, but you can tell that they may have financial challenges.

Very bad shape
Would not play again both greens and fairways are terrible.

the course is not up to Myrtle Beach standards
The person at the desk when I checked in acted like I stole something when I asked for the lunch tickets. Course is in very poor shape. Some greens were un-puttable. Tee boxes need to be cut. Some tee boxes looked like they just put the makers in the first patch of grass they found. Will not be going there again.

Not as nice as I remembered
The course has a nice layout and the people were very friendly . However this course needs some money put in fixing it up. The pace was good because we didn't see too many other golfers . We enjoyed ourselves and the price was ok.

This course is a joke for playing and for golfnow.
Don't waste your time playing this course unless they make major changes to it quickly. Cart paths are ridiculous, dangerous and outright poor. Tee boxes are terrible and greens are even worse than some of the tee boxes. Practice range and putting greens are an embarrassment. The lady working in the pro shop should look for another job. Bottom line is don't play this course unless they have have made major changes and put something back into the course. Forgot the sand traps .... you wouldn't let your kids play in them they are that bad. WARNING STAY CLEAR OF THIS FACILITY ....

Deceivingly, very fast greens
Breaks generally readable. The greens were very fast, properly cut and even though still moist, they seemed soft enough to hold.
