It's been a few years since I've played Burning Ridge and it was good to be back.  There was a ridiculous amount of rain the day before so wet conditions were expected.  Conditions were:

Tees - Good.  Pretty flat too, which is appreciated.

Fairways - Good.

Rough - Very good.

Bunkers - Too much rain & lots of standing water.  Can't really say anything because of that.  Considering the rest of the course, I would imagine they are well maintained too when dry.

Greens - Very good.  Probably running 9.  A little better than Pine Hills which I played about two weeks ago.

Cart Paths - Could use some work.  Lots of standing water because of the rain.

I like Burning Ridge.  The par 3s are tough with some challenging forced carries.  Most of the holes homes are not in play.  Where you can see the homes, they are far enough off the rough where you'd really have to miss to hit into them.  

Big thumbs up to Burning Ridge based on current conditions.

Thanks for the update.  About ten years ago I playedBR and really liked it.  I'm playing it later in the summer.

I played BR many times. This golf course is under the radar. I like this course. A good value.

Thanks for the report. All what is important is there.

Thanks again @Polekat914!

Burning Ridge is a good bang for the buck kind of course!

We always enjoy playing Burning Ridge during the winter. Course is usually in very good condition.

Good report on Burning Ridge, a course we seem forget about over the winter time, maybe next year.

UPDATE 9.9.20

Wow, what a surprise. First time playing BR. Myrtle got drenched last night and we teed off in the rain so didnt expect ideal conditions. CPO was obvious before we hit the clubhouse. What a great course.

Yeah, you had to roll it a little in some spots in the fwy and greens but the turf was good-really good! Cant recall an MB course that so far exceeding my expectations.

I love how the green entrances/surrounds are so varied from hole to hole. Just a great/fun/playable course. Highly recommend.

P.S. the green on 13 may be the most beautiful green I've played in Myrtle Beach. I dont know how many pinnable spots there are but it looks like a rumpled blanket draped over your bed after a good night of sleep. Just frickin cool.

A solid tier three course with a couple of difficult holes - 1 is a tough starting par 5

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

Thanks Peter.

 

I , too,  agree about this course exceeding expectations.

 

FYI  : it is not a great layout and you can't expect a tier 1 or 2..... but for a mid tier, I agree.

It is worth playing for sure.

 

 If you never palyed it...you can expect a River Club or Litchfield type layout .

 

When I played it the conditions were outstanding and I think as good as River Club

Burning Ridge is fun to play. A lot of good holes on this golf course.
