I bought our tee times from an online multi-course vendor. Booking the tee time in the afternoon the day before the tee time led to a lot of confusion. The list of golfers that the starters were working from that day were printed the day before and before I had made my reservation. Since our names were not on the starter's list, they kept us waiting 10 minutes while they figured out what happened and then additional time to work us in on the fly. During this time, I was like an unwelcome guest. As the person who made the tee time for my friends, it was embarrassing. No regret was expressed by the starter or anyone else. As to the course, it had some good holes but some of the maintenance has been deferred. The snack bar downstairs needs to be renovated.

This is a first rate track (27 holes) that provides generous fairways with a great layout. No gimmicks, but a very good test of golf. The conditioning was great and just a treat to play. The service was also very good, but for an overly aggressive cart guy. A great experience.

I played both the Egret 9 and also the Ibis 9 and both courses were in very good condition. We played in the summer so the price was around $50 but they also gave us a dozen of new golf balls. Tee shots have to placed or there is a price to pay. Overall very nice course and will play it again.

Nice course for $40 but I was staying in N Myrtle Beach and it was hardly worth the 40 minute drive up there. Too many better ones closer.

I played the Heron 9 and the Egret 9 in December 2008. I signed up for their email club and they sent me a coupon to play the course for $35. It was definitely worth that. The clubhouse was nice. The putting green was big. I wished they would have had free range balls though. When I got through, the bag gentleman cleaned my clubs. I thought that was a very nice gesture since most courses the public can play do not offer that service.

The Egret 9 is an inland 9. There are no holes along the Lockwood Folly River. It plays mostly through woodlands with minimal water that comes into play if you hit the ball relatively straight.

Conditions were very good with the exception of 1 of the greens had been patched. It wasn't as hard as the Heron in my opinion.
