Sure to get a mention anytime there’s the talk of the Grand Strand’s toughest courses, most folks would naturally assume Long Bay Club Golf Course’s name comes up because of its length. That, however, is not the case.
Instead, it’s the greens in this Jack Nicklaus design, with some dramatically falling to pot bunkers and grassy swells and others with what are essentially valleys running through them. Still, others are more rollercoaster in design.
Of course, getting to the greens here can be challenging as well. Long Bay offers solid evidence of an imaginative mind at work with water carries an occasional bit of visual trickery from the tee, an island green or two, double fairways, and more.
Nicklaus has also put natural sand to good use with waste areas that are at the same time both cart path and hazard. Fairways are generally flat although to their sides you’ll often find an explosion of small mounds and hills. And while landing areas can be a bit on the tricky side, it’s near the greens where things really get interesting with pot bunkers, water, expansive waste areas, and the aforementioned bumps and hills standing guard. Amenities include a pro shop, putting green, driving range, lounge, snack bar, and more.

Complete gem. The layout was great. Greens were the best of the week. Range / putting green was easily accessible. The hot dogs were massive and the waitstaff was very kind. Clubhouse was fantastic. Definitely on the list in my return. Highly recommend!
Very disappointed. We had heard that greens were in bad shape and nothing we could do as the greens were diseased in February. However, the people working said the rest of the course was in great shape but that was not the case at all. Nobody in group complained because we all played under the same conditions but wasn't the same course as we played in the past.
This course is under repair so very hard for us to gauge. Once work is done to repair greens i expect it is very nice.
i understand they are closing for renovations, but it was a crime to charge people to golf there. it was embarrassing for me to take my group there.
Raining and didn't play
Admittedly had a lot of burnout from frost, especially greens. Bad conditions. Cool layout. Hoping the course can recover.
greens are completely unplayable, waste of time. when your traveling to play and you arrive to that definitely leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
I love the links layout. The greens were in horrible condition, but I was told beforehand.
THE WORST, THEY SHOULDVE TOLD US THAT IT WAS IN SUCH POOR CONDITION BEFORE WE ARRIVED..
You’ll have to take my word that I did this comment last. Miserable 5+ hours spent at Long Bay. From the moment we got there and were told greens were unplayable which was an understatement to say the least. $20 gift cards given out to appease us?? I bought 4 ball markers to leave on the unplayable greens. A shady way to make money if you ask me. Nothing is $20. First tee a cranky old player “assistant” starts barking at the leader of our group(Spera) about what we still don’t know. TERRIBLE customer service. Too bad it doesn’t end there. Halfway thru the round the same “assistant” comes flying across the fairway just as I’m about to hit a shot yelling HEY HEY HEY! He pulls up to me yelling that we can’t play with 6 on the hole. I said what the hell are you talking about? He pointed to a couple in one of their golf carts(no bags on it by the way). Told him I had no idea who they were and being that he was the player assistant go find out himself who they were. He just drove off in their direction without apologizing. I have enough trouble hitting the ball straight without some old ass curmudgeon yelling in my backswing. Now you know why I saved this for last. If I could give less than 1 for these 5 hours I would. Only blemish of a great week.
The greens were painted & in terrible shape. The starter was an old curmudgeon with a nasty attitude toward our group leader.
If there is a zero for this I would put it we should been notified about the shape of this course, the green where painted green there was no grass on them at all. We should be refunded for this course
Fun course, but greens were so bad the course should have been closes.
The greens were horrible and un-puttable.
Greens were literally unplayable…no grass, had not been rolled, holes not changed out for quite some time…no sand in traps… $20 gift card for concession not nearly enough.. this course was in obvious decline for quite some time…. unacceptable that a replacement course could not have been found.
Great layout. Looks like fun, but greens were in bad shape.
ZERO! Greens were completely lost!!!! No grass - just painted dirt. We were NOT warned ahead of time or given the choice to reschedule or go elsewhere to play our round of golf. Horrible management and poor customer service by Golf Trek for this. Demand a refund on this round or some other credit-type compensation.
Their greens were horrible. The rangers were disrespectful curmudgeons. The only good thing I can say is that the staff at the pro shop were very nice and the food was delicious. We should have been notified prior to playing or given an option to play elsewhere. Since we weren't, we should be given a full refund for this course.
