Review: Blackmoor 5/6/12

 



2001-2002 Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year
 


Date Played: May 6, 2012

This was my first time down to Gary Player's Signature Course, Blackmoor, and I must say I don't know why it took me so long. As I arrived I was greeted by lush green grass and a friendly staff. I was excited to play but as I was walking up the clubhouse stairs I caught a glimpse of the 18th green with its manicured flower beds and pond right of the green and my excitement almost became too much. I knew this was going to be a good round.

As many of you who have read my reviews on Facebook know, I am not a fan of housing on golf courses. Although Blackmoor has a few homes and condos throughout the layout, they are not obtrusive and those you do come in close contact to are well manicured. They do not take away from the natural beauty of the course.

The front 9 starts out with a set of holes that place a premium on hitting the green in regulation. elevated greens and deep bunkers make for tough up and downs if you dont manage the course properly. The back 9 really opens up. There are wider fairways so giving your drive a little extra should help you hit the green more easily.

For those players who are part of the Never Forget Memorial Golf Outing, you may notice that the 1st tournament day will be hosted by Blackmoor. I am absolutely confident that in 2 weeks from now when the tournament takes place, the course will be in just as great if not better shape.

For those of you visiting the area, Blackmoor is a must play for players of all abilities. Come see why Blackmoor was voted the 2001-2002 Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year by the MBAGCOA and was rated 4 1/2 stars by Golf Digest!
