Farmstead Golf Links

Farmstead Golf Links   Farmstead Golf Course is just across the Stateline in North Carolina, and only a few minutes away from North Myrtle Beach, SC. With so many golf courses along the Grand Strand to choose from, Farmstead's Willard Byrd and David Johnson design provides the ultimate golfing experience. The monsterous 18th-hole begins in South Carolina and ends in North Carolina classifying it as a dual-state hole. This hole attracts golfers from all over the country and makes the golf course stand out amongst others. However, it is not just the 18th hole that draws in golfers around the country, the other 17 holes also have their own classic appeal and offer five sets of tees.

The Southern elegance of Farmstead's 8,000 square foot clubhouse is inspired by Georgian Style. Here, players soak-in the excitement of the 18th-hole while viewing from the clubhouse verandas. It is the perfect place to wind down after finishing a round of golf. Other amenities at Farmstead include a full-service pro shop, grill area, and lounge. Be sure to pick up a shirt or hat before heading back to the house!

Played February 23, 2021. Weather has been unseasonably cool and wetter than usual. Loved the layout! Nice variety throughout. Greens rolled nicely though there is a bit of grain. Uphill puts stalled out quickly. Tees and fairways over seeded nicely. Staff was friendly. Our twosome was put out the back nine at 830 and we finished in 1:20. Made the turn right on the heels of the last group off one. By the time we finished hole four they were already a hole and a half behind the group in front. No ranger. Turned out to be a 2:45 front nine. Ugh! Cart part only is the norm on all the courses we’ve played in the area and justifiably so. Soft conditions to say the least. I would love to play here when course dries out. In spite of well placed sub surface drainage this course was borderline unplayable in the fairways. Not their fault.

The course was almost perfect. The fairways and greens were cut very short and were very smooth. All of my issues with this course are related to management and the way they run the course. First off, the starter on the first tee was extremely condescending and rude to us. We were not allowed to bring our own personal coolers, which should provide plenty of opportunity to get water on a hot day.... NOPE! It was 95 degrees with no cooler, no water on the course, and no cart girl driving around. They are seemingly trying to kill people on the course because they want you to buy water from the bar. When I was finished and dropped my clubs off at my car, I ran into the rude starter at the beginning of my round and told me I had to return the cart myself. ...isn’t that his job??? Yes the course is nice, but I would go spend my money somewhere else. (I was able to sneak out my own cooler, so luckily I didn’t dehydrate to death)

Was looking for a friendly experience both on the course and in the club house for my self and two teenagers boys to play and we absolutely found it at Farmstead. The conditions were just great from Tee to green and the quietness and natural surroundings allows the player to feel at ease while focusing on low scores. The non pretentious staff, from the starter (Gene) to the pro shop could not have been more friendly and helpful offering us tips for the course and casual interactions. The snack shop was also relaxing with very friendly staff. We played the Norman course at Barefoot, and needless to say, will not be back to that thing, as Farmstead and others like it are, as I indicated, every bit of what other courses should emulate. Driving the ball back and forth across the state line was a first and my birdie on the Par six 18th was very rewarding and a nice finish to wonderful day. Include this on your short list of course to play, I know I'll be back and we plan on trying the sister Meadow course with our next visit.

Course's fairways were some of the greenest and fullest we've ever seen, greens played nice and were above average for winter time. Course's scenery was a break from the norm, kind of Mid-western ish looking, very wide open, not a lot of OB areas. Very cool that #10 hole you tee off in NC but ball ends up in SC plus the Par 6 #18 and the three par 3's on the back nine is unique and fun. Will definitely be back. Only complaint I have is that they closed down the shop & kitchen early so we couldn't grab anything after our round but I understand since it was Jan. later in the day and dead.

Fantastic Course! Recommend you play it if you are on a MB Golf Trip. The real star of the show is Gary in the Clubhouse. He handles business like a Boss! All golf clubs should be so lucky to have someone like Gary. He is the oil that keeps everything running smoothly!

This course is a treat to play. Greens and fairways in great shape and the layout is interesting to play. The par 6 18th is fun and gives you a chance to go over the water for chance at birdie. What may be even better than the course is the staff. Friendly welcome when you arrive and pleasant checkin and food service. Our group unanimously recommend and will be back next year.

I played a round here on Feb 1, and had a great time on this well maintained course. Super staff, from the bag drop through to the cart return. I accidentally left a sleeve of balls in the men's room prior to teeing off, When I inquired as to whether they were turned in when I passed the turn, the pro shop attendant not only diligently searched for them but replaced them with three Farmstead logo balls. That's performance above and beyond. I will be playing here again in the future.

Great course. Disappointed that we couldn’t take a personal cooler and the back 9 water coolers were empty on a 90 degree day.. I was informed that the beverage cart was sent out with water but we never saw them the entire 18.

Great course. Condition of the greens were fantastic. Fairways very forgiving and rough wasn’t as penal as some of the other courses with razor grass. Very nice layout. Par 6 was unique and enjoyable.

Course is in great shape. I don't like that they are keeping the Bermuda rough around most fairway and greenside bunkers 6- 8 inches high. They have done the same around and in front of the tee boxes. I think they are trying to create the "links" look, but it slows down play.
