Saluda Valley Country Club
Membership has benefits
Didn't feel welcomed or put out by the staff. I could tell the guy in the pro shop didn't give a rip because I was on a golf now hot deal. Acted like I was an idiot when I didn't grab the cart out the back door to grab my clubs in the parking lot. I was going to walk them around, but he basically scolded me. Then told me to hop in line on the first tee. There were two foursomes in line. They took 30 minutes to clear the tee box.... All while I could have been warming up. Pretty poor course management If you ask me. You cannot buy booze if you aren't a member. I didn't see that anywhere on the website, oh well.
Now with the negative out of the way, for 15-20$ on a hot deal it's a steal. Beautiful tree lined fairways, well maintained grass with distinctions for fairway, 1st and second cut. The greens were a bit patchy but we are just coming out of winter I expect they'll have that figured in the next couple weeks. Even with the patches the ball was still rolling true. The greens were probably running a 5 or 6. It was wet the morning I played. I felt like this course deserved a good review even if the guy in the pro shop was a grouchy old man. It was just too much fun to play.

Fun Course near Greenville
Had a great time at Saluda Valley on a Sunny Saturday. Starter was friendly, clubhouse nothing to write home about.
Tee boxes on most holes were in superb condition. Greens were receptive, and very very fast. Paired up with a member who said the greens aren't normally as fast as they were that day.
One particular dogleg on the back (I think 16# is very difficult. From the Blues #tips) the tee shot requires a 190 yard shot, and then your second shot is 170 yards uphill, so choose your clubs carefully. Probably the hole that intrigued me the most.
Course is great I live near Greer, SC and it only took me 1/2 hour to get there. Worth the drive for sure!
Positives: No houses on the course, so if you can find your ball, you can play it. Wide fairways. Friendly staff.
Negatives: No restroom on the course at mid turns.

Enjoyed playing this course on a beautiful Saturday. Fairways and Greens were in great shape. Greens putted very nicely. I will definitely be back to play again.
