Gary Player has played and designed golf courses all around the world, but there’s only one Gary Player Signature Course on the Grand Strand - Blackmoor Golf Club. Blackmoor Golf Club plays 6,614 yards from the back tees, with a course rating of 71.1 and a slope of 126. Blackmoor is also a favorite of female visitors to the Myrtle Beach area and plays 4,807 yards. Play from the yardage that best suits your game and you’re sure to have a good time.

This Gary Player signature course takes advantage of the natural terrain as well as beautiful vistas, producing a combination of shot varieties, which adds to your enjoyment no matter how good or bad you’re playing. Marshes, wetlands and/or water come into play on about half the holes and the green complexes are well protected with either sand or grass bunkers and swales. With all of the thought Player put into this course, he has made it challenging for low handicappers and enjoyable for high handicappers.

Easily the most memorable hole on the golf course is Number 8, a par 4 that plays 347 yards from the White tees – much shorter with Option B. “A Tale of Two Fairways” would be an appropriate name for this hole. The conventional, aka wider fairway is to the left, making this a dogleg right. You can leave driver in the bag with this route and hit a 3-wood or hybrid off the tee. That should leave a moderate chip shot into the green.

Option B is for the gambler in you. Number 8 gives you an option to go directly at the green, up a narrow alleyway which plays about 270 yards. Be warned, hit it straight or pay the price. Either way, you end up at a gently undulating green protected with bunkers left – or behind the green – depending on your route. Executed correctly, Option B could help you pick up a shot on the field.

Even without the old slave cemetery that runs down the left side of this hole and dates back to the 1800’s, Number 13 (478 yards from the White Tees) would still be a good hole. Add in the cemetery and good becomes great! Calling this a dogleg right doesn’t do it justice; it’s more like a 45° right turn. A long fade off the tee goes a long way in lessening the burden on your second shot, where, depending on your length off the tee, you’ll have a decision to make. Anyone with a clear shot at the green needs to go for it; there’s not a lot of trouble around the green other than a bunker on the right side and trees on the left if you’re way off. The green slopes from back right to front left, so do your best to keep the ball below the hole.

Half of the holes at Blackmoor are doglegs and will require not only proper club selection but also good placement if you want to score well. Many greens are elevated and require you to fly it on the green as opposed to running it on. All of the greens roll fast and true.

Blackmoor also has an excellent practice area with a full-length driving range where you can hit every club in the bag to your heart’s content, and a putting green. The clubhouse features a well-stocked pro shop with all of your favorite logoed Blackmoor gear and a grill and bar that serves all of your favorite libations and clubhouse food. The burgers are unbelievable.

The pro shop staff was very nice and helpful. Even the ranger was ready with good advise

Course was almost empty due to rain the previous 3 days. Cart path only due to that. Fairways, greens and tee boxes were in good shape. Staff was very friendly and eager to please. Enjoyed my round and would play it again.

The bunker were not raked, very hard sand. Had a threesome in front of us played slower than a fivesome, every time the ranger came by, he chatted with them but never told them to pick up their pace of play.

Nice course. Great condition with nice layout.

I liked playing this course a lot. It was in excellent shape and the staff was very nice. The only thing I would have liked better is if there weren't so many dog leg rights. It felt like that was the only type of holes that they had. But over all a nice experience.

Always liked the course. The longer hitters in our group had to hit Irons off the tees on the 7 doglegs or they would have hit through the fairways.

Fun and quirky golf course.
  delondon - 11/10/11
Played in 4 1/2 hours, but it could have been 3:45 if the course had not put people off #10 at the same time they put people off #1. No ranger enforced the pace of play that they stressed at the beginning. Dont think I will be going back.
