1/31 $25 birthday round on an ideal sc winter day–worked in early by starter for 4 hr POP with some waiting but with the setting and the weather we didnt care–was able to take some extra putts and chips as the 4some following was no where to be seen.
Setting is great–holes are separated–some seem to be 1/4 mile apart as you wind thru the canyons and hills. Generally ample landing areas with at least one fairway side offering some safety– but some forced carries. Fairway conditions quite good with very few wet areas–overall tightly mowed but with good cushion and acceptable roll out. Closely mowed approaches to green which looked to be great for chips but required a precise strike as any shot hit even a little fat would really grab the club or on flops would give too much bounce in to the ball. Rough some what thin and short along most fairways–a little longer and thicker near the greens.
Tees level with good cover. Bunkers well maintained with consistently good quality sand.
The greens are large with quadrants that accentuate the contours providing the opportunity for a range of pin placements that could increase the degree of difficulty by a factor of 10. Speed was a little below medium fast–putts rolled fairly smoothly–but there were many un-repaired or poorly repaired ball marks.
Friendly helpful golfer oriented staff. This is a higher end course that is probably worth the 50-75 $ deals that can be found–but is an absolute must for your birthday play–thanks Crossings and GK for the posting.
