Rated 3 out of 5 by JParr29672 Course Playablility
Don't understand why this course is rated so favorably. Played it in the past and don't like their changes. Installed new greens which are horrible. Who has ever heard of zoysia for greens? Had to hit every putt hard just to reach the cup. Greens were firm and if you tried to hit short ball would plug. It is a very pretty looking course but doesn't play well.
Sorry I spent the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BFPARTEN Great Greens, But Front Nine Fiasco
Was really excited about playing here for the first time. Read the reviews about the new zoysia greens, and was really looking forward to see how they rolled. Got to the course an hour early, so had plenty of time to hit balls and test the putting surface on the practice green. Check in was easy, and they indicated that I was paired with a threesome. About 10 minutes before our tee time the threesome arrived in two carts, but with only two bags. One of the players was a Clemson football player who was "learning" the game. The other two players were a father and son, and the football player was the boyfriend of the daughter of this same father. In nine holes, neither one of the younger players got a ball into play. We were constantly behind, and the father was giving "lessons" to the football player. Sometimes you run into these types of things when you get paired up. Tried to enjoy the course as much as possible, but they were constantly talking while I was playing, and would walk around on the greens when I was putting. After nine holes, the father realized they really didn't need to be on the course, and left after 9 holes. I was then by myself between a twosome in front, and a threesome behind me, neither group would let me join up with them on the back nine. Have never understood this as well, have always invited singles to join my group if we had an open slot. All in all, really enjoyed the course, and want to come back for sure. The greens were excellent. Just hope that don't run into the same situation when I play again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by patamitchell Excellent course!
Staff was very friendly! The greens rolled well and were decently fast. The sand was perfect. The fairways and rough were groomed very well. Shot a 79 for my first round. I'll be back. May even join now that I've played it. Great course. Lots of fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Possum6 One of the best I've played this summer
Always wanted to play The Walker Course and got my opportunity yesterday. Course was closed for 2 months this summer to redo the greens, course had only been reopened for a week when I played it and it was in immaculate shape. The greens were slow and fuzzy, but I understand that being fresh sod. Only bad lie I got in the fairway was when my tee ball plugged near a sprinkler area. I look forward to playing it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by u551468187 Great course!
Awesome course! Went after course was opened after a few weeks of updates. The greens and fairways were immaculate! If it hadn't rained before we went, it would have been perfect.

They recently closed the course for two months to change the greens to diamond zoysia and upgrade some different areas. It was money well spent and one of the most well maintained courses in the upstate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Yellowbell Very over rated and over priced
The cart staff was friendly; not sure the shop staff. This course is very overpriced. Greens are beat up and very inconsistent. Some traps were fluffy while others were not. I would never recommend this course, and then to find out after the fact the cart was $20. Each. For a birthday surprise, the surprise was on me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 69Golf Awesome Course and Challenging
Very surprised at what a nice course this was. I've played other college courses and nothing so far compares to The Walker Course. Very well maintained course. Challenging greens in very good condition.
The staff member that was on duty in the pro shop was less than helpful which is a shame. The course was not overly busy when I arrived due to the heat; however, the staff member made me wait until my scheduled tee time and then didn't tell me when the person I was playing with arrived, so I was delayed when I got to the tee box because others had piled in, in front of me. Come on guys - female golfers deserve the same respect as our male counterparts. Be respectful.
