Golf Courses Near Greenwood, SC
“Located just 60 miles from both Greenville, SC and Augusta, GA, the quaint town of Greenwood in upstate South Carolina entices golfers with its moderate sunny weather, friendly Southern hospitality, and beautiful golf courses. Greenwood’s proximity to Augusta makes it an attractive destination during Masters Week, as a dozen courses are within easy driving range and four list a Greenwood address. Sporting a rousing George Cobb layout that appears on best-in-state-lists, Greenwood Country Club is a private club with a classic aura. Public play is welcome and you may even score a Hot Deal tee time. Hot Deals can also be found at Greenwood’s other 18s. Lake Greenwood is in play at the beautiful Links at Stoney Point, a former host of a Symetra Tour event and another facility that has been rated among South Carolina’s top courses. Located near a Revolutionary War battlefield, The Golf Club at Star Fort is a player-friendly course with an intriguing set of par 3s. Greenwood’s remaining course, the 9-hole Par-3 West, is very short and ideal for beginners.
Greenwood’s chief outdoor attraction is Lake Greenwood State Park, the go-to spot in the area for kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and fishing. There’s a certain charm to Greenwood, which has recently benefited from a revitalization project. Uptown Greenwood, the city’s dining and shopping hub, is delightful for strolling. There’s plenty of culture on Main Street with the Greenwood Community Theatre, the Museum, which showcases Greenwood’s history, and The Arts Center, housed in a 100-year-old building. The Festival of Discovery, a celebration of rural culture known for its barbecue competition and Blues music, and the Festival of Flowers are annual highlights on the Greenwood calendar. For golfers, though, it’s hard to top Masters Week in this pretty South Carolina town.”
