Nice course. It's in great shape. Some bunkers have overhanging lips so it's hard to hit long irons out of them but enjoyed the day.

Very well maintained Golf Course in a perfect location right across the street from the airport. Most of the time in perfect condition except when the weather turns. The course drains very well. Great staff. This is a public course so the facilities are small and not really equipped. But, if you have some clubs and you want to play a quick round with no hassle for a low price this is a good place to go.

If you’re a golfer who has ever dreamed about stepping off the plane and right on to the golf course, Whispering Pines Golf Course in Myrtle Beach, SC can come as close as any club in America at making your dream come true. In fact course owner Chip Smith has pictures of golfers lugging their golf bags and luggage across the street to play a round golf course. The golf course at Whispering Pines is a challenging as it is beautiful to look at. The course has been carved out of over 200 acres of mature hardwood and towering pine trees. The course originally opened in 1963 and was redesigned by Texas architects Finger, Dye and Spann in1983. If you like to see mother nature at her best, this is the place for you! In 1998, Whispering Pines was designated a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” by Audubon International. At the time, they were only the 3rd course in South Carolina to achieve this honor. For several years, conditions at Whispering Pines deteriorated and the course lost many of their regular players. In 2015, Atlantic Golf Management – who was the previous operators of TPC Myrtle Beach – stepped up and assumed management of the course. Atlantic has made many improvements, including better conditioning of the course, and have plans for many more. You’ll find tree-lined fairways, strategically placed lakes, and well undulated TifEagle greens await your arrival at Whispering Pines. Although it’s located across the street from the airport less than five minutes from the heartbeat of the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, Whispering Pines offers golfers tranquility. There are no homes on the course; so no backyards or windows to worry about. It’s just you, mother nature and the occasional fighter jet buzzing overhead! Whispering Pines has some impressive practice facilities including a full-length driving range; a chipping area and practice putting green. You can hit a few balls to get loose before your round or hit a few buckets and work on different aspects of your game so you’ll be ready for your next round. In case you can’t figure things out on your own, golf lessons for all skill levels at the Whispering Pines Golf Academy. Unlike many green grass golf pro shops that have given in to the big box golf retailers, the pro shop at Whispering Pines carries a good selection of golf apparel from such well-known companies as Antigua, Callaway, Divots and more. They also have the latest shoes from Nike and Callaway and the prices on the equipment they stock will match or many cases beat the big box outlets. Whispering Pines pro shop also stacks a wide selection of balls, gloves and accessories. Equipment and accessory brands include Adams, Titleist, Callaway, Cleveland, Nike, Wilson, and more. One thing you’ll notice at Whispering Pines is the size of the greens; for the most part they are small and elevated; a double whammy for many! This places a premium on accuracy on your approach shot. During your round, it’s not uncommon to see military jets doing some practice runs or flying over information. After all, the Myrtle Beach airport was once an Air Force base and the golf course was previously known as Myrtle Beach AFB Golf Club. With an above average course rating of 70.9 and a slope of 128 from the White Tees, Whispering Pines offers most golfers a good challenge, with no gimmicks. As you stand on the tee, what you see is what you get, all you have to do is hit the shots and make the putts! It’s a great place to get in the first or last round of your Myrtle Beach golf vacation.

This course was much better than I expected. There's a ton of water making it challenging enough but if you keep the ball in play it's fairly easy. For the price it can't be beat. I did happen to lose my silver frame black lenses Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 XL sunglasses. If you happen to have picked up them and kept them, I don't blame you but I won't be mad if they're returned. ;)

You absolutely get bang for your buck at this golf course. This course used to be owned and operated by the military on a former Air Force base and has a fantastic layout. I played in early October and the conditions were absolutely perfect, lush and green. The front nine is pretty simple, but does force you to hit fairways. The back nine has some teeth to it and is definitely a challenge. You can't beat the prices and friendly people here! I'd highly recommend this place to any golfer looking for a good deal.

While it may be a Muni and not a "top course," I'd play here in a regular basis. We got around on a Monday morning in just under four hours! The staff was friendly and courteous. The course was in good shape. While we didn't think they needed to go full cart part only after the rain overnight, they get to make the call and I respect that overall. The price is right and it's a solid course. Challenging and interesting hike layout. If you're a military person or like history there's some cool bios on each bike about former commanders of the base locafed at each hole as a marker.

I rate this course a one star , simple because I golf at this course on 8/29/19, a 11:00 am tee time, when I was finish golfing, I left my Bushnell rangefinder in the cart . And the cart guy was there cleaning up the carts and I spoke to him telling him to have a nice day, "and he said to me, thanks for coming there". I call back to this golf course two times , and I left them my phone number, to check with their lost and found. No one has called me back in finding them. And I told them that I was from New Jersey and they was sentimental value, because my father purchase them for me before he had died. I know the cart person kept it for himself. That's why I rate this course one star. For not being honest. I can still be reach @ 856-236-3908 if anyone cares to help.

Course is challenging. Greens & fairways are well maintained. Getting out of the ruff can be a ??. Goes without saying, best to stay in the fairways. Fair amount of sand traps and water. Par 3's tend to play longer than posted. Although course is not comparable to top courses in Myrtle Beach, for the price, definitely worth playing.

Whispering Pines is not the same as most Myrtle Beach courses. Found it to be in very good condition and the layout makes it different than other area courses. Greens were true and fairly fast. Fairways were cut a shade longer making it a bit more playable for average players. Staff was accomadating and helpful. Nice clubhouse and restaurant facility. Give this course a try!!

The very nice course layout was made hard to appreciate by a staff that seemed annoyed to have golfers play it. I arrived in town on Saturday June 1st, 2019 just in time to get a nice relaxing 9 holes in. I called ahead and was told to head out and play. The course was wide open. I arrived at 6. Sunset was set for 8:30, so I was excited to play a laid back 9 holes. The pro shop attendant soon told me “the snack bar person already left and the starter is gonna be upset to see a golfer so late”. I had called 15 minutes earlier to make sure it was good to come out. The starter proceeded to beg me to play my 9 holes in “record time” because he told his wife he would be able to leave at 7. I was dumbfounded, as I have worked at courses my whole life and we would never ask a player to try to finish 1.5 hours before sunset so staff could get home. Very unprofessional. He then pressured me 2 more times (even with a weird and firm pat on the shoulder) before I tee’d off making sure I knows how important it was to get done fast. Two days passed and I came back for another 9 with my wife and dad since it was the closest course to where we were staying. We tee’d off at 2:30 on Tuesday June 4. The snack bar person eventually was torn away from her phone to come serve us and was generally unpleasant, telling us she was leaving soon and was doing us a favor to not hold our license for a cooler. We were greeted outside by the same starter from a few days earlier, who immediately told me to make sure to throw any trash out on the course, because he had already emptied the trash cans by the starting tees and didn’t want to have to do it again! What!!! How lazy is that. It was 2:30 in the afternoon. That is a terrible thing to ask any time, but the mid afternoon time frame made it even more odd. Overall, I will just say that a pretty nice course is only as good as the staff that welcomes you to it. Do better, Whispering Pines.

Oh don't get me wrong, golf was great. We had a rain check from the previous year that was figured into our 5 days of golf and when we tried to present them the attendant at the pro shop said we didn't need to turn them in, that it seems that that round was part of our package. Now, over a month later, they're saying we owe them money. Who keeps a rain check after it's been refused. Bad form Whispering Pines.

Don’t come here unless you’re a local that knows the course and can keep up. We played here before a wedding expecting a relaxing day. Without giving us any warning, a man came up on a cart and forced us to essentially skip a hole because the locals behind our group started too early (were basically shooting par) and were complaining that we weren’t keeping up with their pace. Keep in mind, our group paid over $700 to golf that day. I have never had this happen at any other course in any state. If you’re visiting, I suggest looking for another course for a fun time.

I only spent time here because of the convenience of the location. Not in very good shape for a "Myrtle Beach" golf course. Also, the staff could stand to be a little more welcoming to visitors. I walk into the pro shop. Gene is friendly with the local in front of him. Charges him $30 plus tax. I get to the counter. Straight faced without much enthusiasm he says,"forty dollars plus tax". They discriminate against travelling golfers! So much for southern hospitality.
