Wild Wing Plantation
Nice course if you have 6 hours to play 18 Holes
The course itself is lovely. Challenging holes and longer than I am used to from the ladies' tees. The starter was very friendly. We are locals and we like to support golf clubs other than our own, by playing different courses on the weekends. There were 11 in our group on this day. We all had rain checks from a previous visit when, after 3 hours and we had only arrived at the 9th tee box, we ended our play. On that previous visit, we assumed the slow play was due to the group in front of us using "caddy girls" which dramatically slows down the pace of play. However, we have realized that maybe the caddy girls weren't the only problem. On yesterday's visit, the group in front of our first foursome was as slow as could be. They would hit multiple balls each off the tee, if they weren't happy with their first shot. Also in the fairway, if they weren't happy with a shot, they would pull another ball out of their pocket and keep hitting until they liked the result. On one tee our ladies inadvertently hit into them...surprised that the tee shot went as far as it did. It trickled close to where they were standing, and they actually drove their carts BACK to our group and told them to go back to THE home! When the ranger finally came by to check, I don't think they did anything to move the group in front of us since it never got any faster. At one point all three of our groups were waiting to tee off, with the twosome behind us joining us just as our first group finally got to hit. Our round took over 5 1/2 hours, and the course was not very crowded. After we finished, one of our group went in to the pro shop to express our displeasure. They did not seem too concerned over the pace of play except to offer us another rain check. Maybe instead of being so generous in passing out rain checks to us for slow play, they might try to figure out how to speed up the play! Our group of 12 locals will likely support other courses in the area. Too bad, since it is a pretty and interesting course. You can tell I am upset, but there really isn't any excuse for such slow pace of play. I feel the rangers primary job is to make sure the pace of play is met, by moving the slower players along. Maybe for this course, this is not a priority.

Course was great for this time of year. . Now that is all I can say that's positive. Had a1:2
0 tee time pushed back to 1:45 /2 because they had no carts?????? Now for pace of play - playing in two groups of three, after three hrs we were only on the12th hole looking at another two hrs minimum??? Now about staff showing compassion, sorry just doesn't seem to cover It.I can see why they went from 72 holes to their current 27. Would I recommend playing there, only off you have about 7 hrs to spare

Good course, slow play
Challenging course. Conditions were a bit dry and 4 holes were being overseeded and were cart path only. Played the front nine in good time but then play slowed on back nine (played holes 10 and 11 in 40 minutes). Had to wait for cart on check in (cart guy did not seem too organized) but starter was very friendly and helpful and offered advice on course. No GPS on cart. Would play again but for the money, thought other courses we played were better value (e.g. Long Bay). Women's tees were fair.

this has been one of my favorites in the area for 20 years
The Wild Wing complex is one of my favorite places to play whenever I am in Myrtle Beach. With the Legends complex also on Hwy 501, you don't even have to leave that area and have 5 great courses to play. The layout at The Hummingbird is one of the best in the area with water and well placed bunkers to make it a true test of golf. The staff is great and will help with everything, even directions to anyplace you're heading in the area.

The course was in great condtion. Plays long and greens can be frustrating depending on pin placement.
Excellent value and nice scenery.

I played this course after heavy overnight rain,it was very wet,even tee boxes bringing up water ,after a couple of heavy down pours,fairways flooded ,bunkers also flooded.greens held up well.at 52 dollars it was not worth it. Price should have been reduced to suit conditions..feel they just wanted the money.

This course is a hidden jewel.
My wife and I found this course suited for both high and low handicap golfers. Tee choice is key. Soft fairways reduced distance but kept more tee shots in play. Traps were well maintained and fair. Greens recently verticut confirming good maintenance. Staff very helpful and GolfNow Tee times arrangements were accurrate. Watch out for the squirrels and raccoons....they are very clever food scavengers when you are away from the cart on some holes!
