I will be frank with yall the course is just ok. The place is better since the renovated the course it is much better and the green are better to i cant wait for the spring. I can not stand Steve Larick the pro over there the guys stupid, stubborn, and does not understand anything and he is bad at math. I would like the course much better if i did not have to deal with Steve Larick.
If you are coming from out of town don't play here its not worth it when you could play much nicer courses.

wow. that is the only thing i can say about this course...the greens are the best ive seen in my life.The fairways are the greenest and cut the shortest in columbia.The bunkers are fazio style. The greens keepers have the best work ethic in the state. Jeremy Gray leads the staff so call him for any questions reguarding this ammaculate course.I Higly recommend this course to anyone that enjoys a round of golf.

On March 21,2009 a group of 16 people came together from Augusta Ga., Greenville S.C., and Charlotte N.C. to play this course. The greens were the worst I ever played on thus far, this course is not worth driving to and playing if you live more than 5 miles away. If you live more than 5 miles away, make sure they are paying you to play there. Dogs were running all over the course. The only thing this course had going for it was the scenery and the length of the course. GREENS ARE THE WORST and they didn't even tell me when I booked the tee times and the pro there knew I was coming from out of town with that many golfers BAD BUSINESS...

Played 2/27, "greens" were in god awful condition. Rained that afternoon and all weekend, hopefully later in the month they'll get there stuff together. Not worth the $34 but definitely better than a day at the coal mine.

Talk about not feeling like a place wants your business. Played Sunday AM, little rain falling but not unplayable by any means. Pro Shop Clerk acted like it was a huge issue that we wanted to give them our money to go play in the rain. Trash Bags sitting around the clubhouse grounds, cart was garbage, only people on the course and the cart had a broken windshield, Pro Shop guy was less then thrilled when we asked to trade out the cart. Golf Course was okay, greens bumpy and slow, but the layout is pretty good. Never will give a place my money that acts like they don't want us there. If I owned a course the few people showing to play in the rain would be treated great. Bad taste left in the mouth for sure.

Overall very happy with the course, good layout, challenging holes, very tough greens. They need assistance with the clubhouse, don't eat their if you don't have to.

I like the fact this course is not immersed in a housing allotment and is a good layout. However, that being said, you have to get past the poor customer service behind the counter. They always act like it's an inconvenience for us to be there. They are also the only course in our package that mandates each golfer sign a rebate ticket. The only time we seen a ranger was when they wanted everyone off the course when 'they' were ready to go home... is was barely past 6:30

The layout for this course is my favorite in the Columbia area. The width of the fairways is fairly generous so it promotes taking the driver and letting it rip. But beware, there us usually thick woods on both sides of the fairway so wayward balls are often lost balls. It more scenic than most courses in the area as it winds through woods and marsh areas. The long Par 5 16th is the signature hole and though tough is fun to play. The fairways are very well maintained but the greens are inconsistent and not maintained as well as some lesser clubs. It is not a walking course. The distance between the greens and some of the tee areas is quite long.

They don't marshal the course very well. They need to have a starter making sure tee off times are honored and that singles and twosomes are joined up when things get crowded. You rarely see a marshal driving around the course checking on play. Things can get really backed up and slow as a result on Friday afternoon's when I like to play. The practice range is well maintained and you hit off grass. I disagree with Mr. Besley who commented below about the putting green. It is way too small and has so much undulation you are always putting to big breaks over small distances. The cost on Weekdays and Fridays is $36 and it is about $45 on the weekends. I would call it a fair value. Despite some drawbacks I still enjoy playing it now and again. With better management I would probably play it all of the time.

Played in August: Greens were almost bare - no grass; kids were riding bicycles in fairways, bunkers and on greens - no rangers to stop them - afraid to hit into them for fear of injuring one of them, so finally ended up skipping two holes; no hole layout on score cards - just yardages - some of the carts have yardage books if you're lucky enough to get one; for $45, expected a lot better.

Nice course, difficult greens

I played this course in late January and it was in pretty good shape. The fairways were brown but the greens were healthy. They've spent a lot of money creating mounds along some of the fairways and sculpting the greens. The geography in the area also includes some nice hills that the designer has worked nicely into the layout. The only thing I didn't like was that there were a few blind tee-shots.

The greens were some of the hardest I've played. Lots of undulations with some pretty severe slopes.

Nothing particularly spectacular about the club house but there was a good driving range (real turf) and a large practice putting green.
