Ive been reading reviews that TPC is in poor shape.  We're flying down to MB August 4 and playing TPC Aug 7.  Is this as simple as the course is still recovering from maintenance in June or should I be concerned about the conditions and change that date?  Also playing World Tour, Caledonia, Thistle, and Arrowhead. Thanks!

Sometimes a popular course doesn't get a report for a few months. 
The most recent TPC report I could find in MBGT is: 
https://myrtlebeachgolftalk.com/community/mb-course-talk/tpc-caledonia-true-blue/#post-15926  
 
TPC was great in May, but that is outdated now.   
 
Reading The Google reviews, it's good, bad, good, bad,......... so it hard to evaluate
when there is no consistency.

Yes it’s hard to get a feel for the “real” conditions without playing it. The draw of TPC is a tour quality course with impeccable conditions.  If the conditions are not as you hope to expect I’m not sure it’s worth it.  I’ve never played there and just want to make the most of our golf trip to Myrtle.

From what I read in a local Facebook group, they punched the greens on 6/21. By the time you get there in August, they'll be fully healed. 

I've played TPC a few times, and the conditions have never been anything short of spectacular. It's right there with Caledonia, True Blue, Tidewater, and the other top-tier courses in the area.

A lot of times, people actually WANT to complain about the nicer courses, so they take the slightest problem and exaggerate it, or they ignore the fact that the greens had been aerated recently and they still chose to play there.

@bnlongdriver we switched TPC to Wild Wing Avocet due to wanting something a little easier and possible concerns about condition with TPC
Schedule is:

08/04 World Tour

08/05 Caledonia 

08/06 Thistle

08/07 Wild Wing

08/08 Arrowhead
