played here for the first time in 10+ years (they had 27 holes the last time I played here). nice collection of holes, fair, greens rolled nicely. sub 4 hour round. holes are tight in spots and lots of collection areas around greens (from which you can putt).

Greens were in excellent shape, with some interesting pin placements. As spring progresses hope there is more grass on the fairways.

Course is in great condition considering the dry conditions in the area. Greens were near mint and receptive. Other courses I have played so far had fast greens, but extremely hard and not very receptive. Would come back here in a heartbeat.

Excellent course in the HHI area. Don't miss playing this course. It is in great shape and very challenging. Staff is friendly and pace of play was great. I hope they don't sell this course to developers as the local buzz is talking about. We play this track once or twice every trip to SC.

We were a threesome and all agreed this was the best course we had played in HHI. The pace was perfect, greens were excellent. The layout was very good but playable without stress. This was early March so the fairways were not optimal without much grass trowth. The staff was great.

Very good course and in good condition. People don't know how to repair ball marks, but greens were in great shape (and recently treated). No houses to deal with along this course and only a few water holes. Traps were a little packed in. Par 3s and 5s not long from blues, and only 1 par 4 over 400 yards. Wish I played better than I did but great fun.
