Over the past four decades, Fazio has designed over 120 world class golf courses and has more courses ranking in the top 100 in the United States than anyone else. This includes TPC Myrtle Beach.

TPC of Myrtle Beach Golfer Reviews & Ratings
First played the TPC in 2012 and was a bit wary of returning as some of the reviews that I had come across seemed to indicate that the condition and upkeep had slipped a bit – well to me it was better than ever !! This was a great experience for our 4 ball from the well stocked pro shop to the driving range and to the starter, Richard, who was a real gent and kept us amused with his many Irish jokes !! The course was in supreme condition with only the 18th being non-cart (amazing for the recent rain fall). We had a great day and took advantage of the Taylormade demo day on the range. Again this is a course that we will return to play again as there isn't a weak hole to be found. The greens were the fastest that we played on all week and good shots were rewarded.
Really disappointed in this experience. Don't get me wrong, this is a great track. My group played it twice a few years ago and loved it. After this round, the consensus is that the course it has "slipped" and is resting on its laurels. When we pulled up, we had to unload our own clubs. The fairways were not up to a TPC standard. There are virtually no markers for distance. No one told us that bird houses marked the 150 – we figured that out after 7 holes. Again, these are all "minor and ancillary" issues – but if you want to claim you are a five star course, you need to treat the patron you are charging $175+ like a wanted guest. Bottom line is that I felt like the course was cutting corners on service and maintenance that you would not expect at a TPC facility.
Slowest round of golf I ever played. Ranger had no control. 6 hours for 17 holes. Had to stop due do darkness and 3 groups on 18 (tee, fairway and green).
