I'm going across the river and play

Very tough course with a lot of blind shots/elevation changes making club selection the biggest concern. Course and club have seen better days, but it's still a good option for public play in the Charleston area for the price (go after 3 for a better rate). Bring a lot of golf balls as it can be frustrating for a first timer.

Very tough course to play, and very challenging. The fairways are very tight, and unforgiving. The main strategy in playing this course is to keep the ball in play. The greens are kept in pretty good shape. I have always had problems in playing this course, and have never broke 100 when playing it.

Best course in southern West Virginia, tight fairways, tough green locations. You must plan every shot and hit to specific spots. If played correctly you'll hit every club in your bag.

this is one of the best all around courses in the charleston area. i believe it to be the second hardest due to its tight fairways, blind shots, and greens. better bring a lot of balls or use irons off the tees! great value and difficulty. believe it to be fairly priced and very affordable for the avid golfer looking for a challenge.

One tough course. Way too hilly for my taste, and some of the holes are designed like miniature golf writ large.

I played Scarlet last year and was alittle dissappointed.Went back last week and stayed for 36 holes. This course is for a real golfer. And even better is the new grille they have,good food, beer, snacks and the girl who works there is a sweetheart.

Everything these guys have said about Scarlet is true. It is a challenge and the staff attitude can be a bit bipolar. Each course is a different experience. Bring a lot of golf balls. Don't play after a big rain. It also has a great "After 3" deal. Accept the course for what is is and be on your best game.

great course

ok this course is really fun and challenging. There r many reasons y i will be returning here. many memorable holes and just all out fun on this course. I did however find that the guy at the pro shop was very rude. If the rest of the staff is like him i believe that will knock the score down quite a bit. i like to feel welcomed to a golf course not like im a burden to it. also the price is expensive and u do lose LOTS of balls. other than that it is a excellent course.

Could be great....but it isn't

Scarlett Oaks could be a great course. It has a beautiful pond on the 17th and some nice blind shots. The problem is, the fairways are super skinny, most of the shots are blind and the grass is usually a foot tall. There are leaves everywhere and you ARE going to loose a lot of balls. The price is too high considering how many balls you loose.

could be much better

I just played this course for the first time the other day. The course is situated on very mountainous terrain and very little of the surrounding woods were cleared for the course. Its a tight course, very tight. The holes situated on the lower parts of the course suffer from horrible drainage issues. Granted I played after it had been the day before and there was no sun in mid october. The bunkers leave alot to be desired and there are alot of them. One of the redeeming factors of scarlet however are the greens, I thought them to be some of the best in the area. Overall its a little too expensive to play there for what it is, but its one of the more difficult courses in the area if you feel like a challenge.
