Description of the Long Bay Golf Course

For those looking to play one of the elite courses in the Myrtle Beach area, they need look no further than the Long Bay Club. Designed by the legendary Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus, Long Bay is one of the most magical golf experiences imaginable.

This par-72 course has a lot to offer golfers. Since it is designed by Nicklaus, golfers can be assured of its excellence. However, the Long Bay Club is one of the most unique among those designed by Nicklaus. It relies much more on bunkers to challenge the golfer than the typical design. These bunkers are huge, deep, and all over the course.

The greens are very quick and challenging. Constructed from championship-caliber Bermuda grass, golfers really appreciate the consistency of this putting surface. The course is very well-maintained, and golfers will bask in the grandeur of this magnificent golf course.

This course is not one for beginners. There are many undulating hills on the course that make for some very challenging lies. Only experienced golfers will be able to post quality scores on this tough layout. Beginners will have a very long day at Long Bay, so be sure to be aware of the difficulty level of this course.

Book this course with our Prime Time Rewards Package.

Jack.....He loves his mounds and sand!

A VERY enjoyable course. Reasonably open ....not a lot of "driving down a hallway' holes thank you! However there is plenty of trouble to be found if your swing gets off. Challenging but fair. Always in great shape and a pleasure to play! HIGHLY Recommended!

Sand but....

Okay I was in 5 bunkers on the first 3 holes. That said the fairways were generous. I'd play again.

Great Course

Could not play this course on this trip because we got rained out. However, it is one of my favourite courses in MB. Always good condition and staff are great.

Must play

I haven't played this course in 15 years. I will go back every year.

Great track

Love this course. It's a fair test if you play from the correct tees. It played longer than normal because of wet conditions, but drained very well.

My son and I wanted to play a challenging course while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. The course was great and the staff was friendly. It was a good experience for both of us.

Good Course

Our group of 12 played Long Bay April 12 and the course was in great condition. The course is marked extremely well for distances to greens. Greens were sandy and a few didn't like that but overall it is worth the money.

over hyped

Such a course reveiving high reviews boggles my mind, one of the worst courses we played, it's almost like they stopped course maintenance 2 weeks before we played.

Reviewed by chris m on 01/13/2012

I found this course to be pretty enjoyable. The staff was extremely friendly and the greens were in excellent condition. As far as how challenging the course is, I found it to be pretty forgiving for the average golfer.Will definitely be playing this course again in the future.

Like playing at the beach

There are more sand traps on this course than you can imagine.If you are not a good golfer you will think you were at the beach all day.Great and challenging golf course.

Long Bay is a great course and is keep in pristine condition! Open off the tee and very tricky on second shots with most greens having two tiers. You may also want to check out the Hugh Royer Champions Golf Academy which is also at the Long Bay Club.

Killer course!

I played this one last week. Jack has a design all his own. A bit out of the way though, but not too bad. About 25 minutes from North Myrtle Beach. Well worth the drive.
