Rated 4 out of 5 by ptown175 fair and fun
we played early so pace of play was very nice.5th group out played in 3.5 hours. Fairways were in ok condition and greens in very good conditions. Lots of suttle slopes and breaks in the greens. the ball rolled nice.
Staff was great. Very friendly. I will play again and green fee was very good for what you get.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lam9548936 Bad time management, work was being done on the course and were weren't warned.
I used to like this course. it was a decently challenging set up with just the right combination of length and hazards. In the recent past, it has fallen way off. It is now used as a parking on the weekends for football games, which is fine if the prices reflected that and the course were maintained to accommodate that. Sadly, it isn't. On 4 of the 18 holes, we had to play around construction crew that were working on the course. A good portion of the fairways were compacted which meant that you were hitting off tight lies regards of well placed your ball was off the tee. None of the above was stated to us and we jumped on to the course with not so much as a little bit of warning about the conditions. Here's the kicker. The course was running a youth institute that day so us, and 5 other groups waited for sometimes up to 30 minutes at each tee box. The youth group consisted of 1 instructor and 9 kids. I'm all for teaching kids the game but there has to be a better way than piling them together in front of 6 foursomes. Again, no warning. All in all, the course conditions were not good, too many fairways had groups of construction workers in them and the poorly managed pace of play was inexcusable. This course went from being one of my favorites to being one that i will probably never play again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sjindal007 Nice course - could do with a map on the scorecard
Great course layout with limited hazards. But could do with a couple of minor changes:
1. It's very hard to see where you go for the next hole. They should put up a few more "direction signs".
2. The signs AT the holes are fairly decent. But only seem to help you when you already got there. They should have printing on both sides. So you can spot the next hole (most cases) from the previous greens
3. Scorecard should have a map like most good courses do.
All in all, very good value at 32 bucks with a cart.
I will play here again

Greens rough, fairways poor condition, average to poor for a municipal course but not worth $70.

Rated 3 out of 5 Missing the basics
It has been many years since I last played at SC. I now remember why I've chosen other locations. First the positives: The price was nice for a riding round on golf now at $41.00. Can't beat that in SC Valley. The driving range is excellent even though it's a matted facility. The greens were in very good shape. Staff was helpful. Unfortunately, the negatives made the round difficult to recommend the course. Many of the holes demand a map or some previous course knowledge. There are no maps on the tea boxes or on the score cards. If you don't have a guide you are in real trouble on more than a third of the holes. Pace of play was horrible. We waited on every tea box and for the group in front of us to clear the green on on every hole. There is no cart concessions nor was there any food available at the turn. The 150 yard markers are clear but that's it. No accurate sprinkler head markers that I was aware of and I played with a person who plays there once a week who didn't know either. If you want a reasonable round of golf but don't care about anything else in the experience it's an ok place to play - just bring a guide!

Rated 4 out of 5 by u000006796883 Nice course, but very crowded
I like this course -- and played it the first time on July 4th and, of course, it wasn't crowded the pace was excellent. I went out a week later, and played at twilight and by the time I got to the 6th hole, there were 2 foursomes and a double in front of me. I gave up. When I complained, I was told, "Oh yeah, there were a few huge groups that went out before you." The learning is, call ahead before you book. As far as the course conditions, they were great considering our miserable drought. Greens are fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eagleman1963 Flat tire
We got a flat tire on the 5th hole. I first for me getting a flat in a cart. Called the pro shop and by the time we got to the green, the staff was there with a new cart. Some of the greens and fairways were dry. We also ran into a group of 7 playing a scramble but they quit after 9 and we were able to finish all 18.
