First off - many thanks to Brian for getting our trip rescheduled to August due to the China Virus.  We were originally scheduled in late May and that was a no go.  

We stayed at the Ellington Condos and played Blackmoor, Willbrook Plantation, Heritage, and River Club.

Condos - Most Grand Strand condos are disappointing and Ellington didn't disappoint there - Dated and dirty are two words that come to mind.  What's it going to take to have clean updated condos for golf groups? Barefoot Yacht sets the standard and as I get older I'm getting more fussy.  Condo owners - Clean them up and update the furnishings!! 

Courses - Blackmoor was in great shape even after the hurricane - CPO but we got around in a little over 4 hours.  Greens rolled true.

Willbrook - Love this course!!  If you haven't played it, put it on your list.  Gators, greens, fairways, and staff are all notable.

Heritage - Another must play - greens were fast, fairways plush!! - Breakfast, Lunch, & 2 beers thrown in top off a great day. Free replays for our group as well!

River Club - Something about this course I love!  Missed an eagle on #9 by an inch....Greens were great, fairways plush.  Friendly clubhouse staff!

We ate at the Dead dog Saloon, and a couple of other restaurants on the Marshwalk - Outdoor seating was perfect....and not near the crowds you'd expect due to the  China Virus!

Our group was smaller this year - many of our Active Duty guys are on travel restrictions.  Murrells / Pawleys area is much nicer then the NMB/MB area - less crowds & commercialization.

p.s. Akers Golf Shop on 17 has deals much better then the PGA Superstores - Check them out when down that way.  We also hit the VFW Lodge on 17 - Great bunch folks and CHEAP DRINKS - If your a member stop by!!

Fairways & Greens,

Just a comment about renting condos in MB.  I agree with you.  Our group has stayed at Crescent Shores condos in NMB for several years.  I can only rate them as decent.  Furniture is dated, carpets dirty, and a lot of time the TVs don't work properly.  We have complained to the company that rents out the condos and a few small things were fixed.  Still, most of them need some serious updating.

It's nice that you got your trip rescheduled.   The CV is probably no safer 
now than in the spring, but we know more about it.  
 
Thanks for a great report!

Thanks for your great report!

Just too bad lodging was an issue (and agree 100 % about BYCV as being THE standard)!

@artmbgolf - We know now that is much more of a political issue than a medical one!!

@undercover-golf-pro- When we are allowed guests in St James again I'll set something up for you and Brian to come on dawn and play.
