How can you defend your greens? Here are pictures I took from of one of them. Again, I had read some poor reviews previous to my visit so I called to see if the course had improved and was told the greens were in near perfect condition. Does this look like near perfect greens? Your reply to my previous post did not even address the fact that you or your employee lied to me and thus stole money from me and the other members of my foursome. I understand several courses in the area have had troubles with their greens. It happens. However, I called Sandpiper Bay, where I had a tee time, to check their green conditions. They were honest with me and told me they were still in sub par condition. I did cancel the round but I will definitely go back there time and time again because of their honesty. I spoke with one of your employees after our disappointing experience and was told this wasn't the first time he had heard the same complaint about customers being lied to regarding course conditions. Stop lying to customers just to get their money. It will catch up with you in the long run!!!!

The course is really quite beautiful in terms of layout and I could see how it has the potential to be quite lovely, but on a recent trip to Myrtle Beach to play golf this month (May2018), two golf courses, The Legends and Carolina National, failed to inform us until we were ready to tee off that their greens had been largely destroyed over the winter. On most greens, we were putting on sand or dirt, or greens pocked with dead area. I don’t thing we saw a decent green on either course. I can’t believe the courses didn’t re-sod their greens for peak season and more importantly, I thought it was dishonest to charge out-of-state visitors peak season rates for courses in such poor condition. It was also dishonest letting us book these courses and not informing golfers us of the terrible green conditions until they we were ready to tee off. I travelled over 1300 miles from Nebraska to play here.
I understand why courses are reluctant to tell golfers when the course is in bad shape because people might cancel, or go elsewhere. As it is though, such dishonesty from these two major course in the Myrtle Beach area will likely lead us to choose other golf destinations in the future. It may be a long time before we return to Myrtle Beach for golf.

Carolina National Golf Club, located on the Winding River plantation, is home to three equally attractive out-and-back nine-hole loops: the Egret, Heron and Ibis. This is a big-dimension layout that roams its way over a wide area of modestly undulating, mainly wooded terrain. Plenty of small lakes, ponds and wetlands making their presence felt, while tall pines line several fairways, providing a screen behind which real estate often sits. There is much to applaud and enjoy in this challenging and scenic course.
If we had to pick a favourite nine, it would be the slightly tighter Ibis, with its more natural feel and containing some of the best of the 27-holes.
