Good course, slow day

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Nov 2, 2021via mobile
This review is from the perspective of a low handicapper. Hopefully this will be of help as Pawleys Plantation is as breathtaking as it is is difficult.

Pros
Course is well conditioned though in my round, the Bermuda grass was in transition to rye. Fringes were a little furry and greens were not as fast as they could be. They were resort average. They were all small like a typical Nicklaus course. Sand was smooth and consistent and layout was overall impressive. Especially on the back 9. Fairways were soft but we could ride our carts on them. Greens held nicely. Good practice area and generally friendly clubhouse staff.

Cons
The 9th hole is ridiculous. Why Jack Nicklaus would stick a big fat tree in the middle of the fairway is beyond me. The hole is tough enough with OB, narrow fairways and an undulating green with a false front. Pro shop staff was kind of indifferent. Pace of play was slow too. I got paired with a single and we later joined with another twosome that as it turns out was slow. It took us 4:40 to finish. Also while they didn’t bother me, the average golfer might find some holes nearly impossible. No 17 for instance requires a
mid iron over marsh to a shallow bulk headed green. Range balls were included in the green fee but you only got like 15 balls.

Unit 19D was the most vile, disgusting place I’ve ever stayed. Couldn’t sit on chairs or sofas without covering with towels; porch filthy. Bathroom so gross I gagged when I saw the toilet brush holder filled with brown water. Shame because Caledonia is lovely

Room tip: Don’t even think of staying in that unit. It will spoil your vacation.

Stayed 2 weeks (9/14/20 - 9/25/20) in 14-1A. No time to find alternate accommodations as we had 20 tee times scheduled over a 10 day period. Cob webs on fixtures. Pans in cabinets with grease in them. Blender base but no blender container? Dead cockroaches found in bathroom and bedroom; live cockroaches in living room and bathroom. Last night there we found a bug crawling on my partners leg when laying in bed. Toaster caught on fire....literal flames. Luckily I was standing nearby and extinguished it in the sink. Called Litchfield front desk (they manage the condo rentals) to let them know and their response was, "Okay...." As though she was waiting for me to say something important. I asked if they could get us a new one and she said she would try. We never heard from them again and we did not receive a new toaster. Carpets stained, furniture outdated. Dresser falling apart and drawers fall out. Blinds missing slats and won't turn open. And while they stated on their paper that there would be a coffee starter pack, there was not. That's all I can think of. I would not stay there again. However, the COURSE and COURSE STAFF were amazing!! The starter, Darrell, was top notch! We really enjoyed playing there.

The room is extremely small, definitely not big enough for four people. The pictures are very deceiving. It is supposed to have two king size beds in it and they are definitely full size beds. The decor is very old and the room smells very bad, like old smoke. No cable, No WiFi it’s very dusty and the carpet is nasty. The phone isn’t working and the bathroom has hair all over it. Their are stains on the walls. On the website allows you to pay a “deposit” when booking but when you come in they ask for another $250.00 “deposit”. The room is cheap for a reason.... and it’s not good. My family and I care into town to celebrate our kids graduation and this is really upsetting. And the room has roaches in it.

Played golf today. Weather was good and course was in great shape. A lot of fairways are fairly narrow so drives need to be straight especially with houses that line the course. Stopped in for lunch after and round which ended the day nicely. Would definitely come back

Whenever our annual golf trip comes to Pawleys we always play here at least once. The course is always in great condition. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The front nine meanders through the main part of the resort. But the back nine has several holes on marsh with water views. Absolutely beautiful.
