Course always seems to be in prime condition. Very playable, yet challenging. Grumpy old guys handling bags and carts, but that just adds to the personality of the place. Played here several times over the past few years, and this place continues to be a hidden gem!!

Placement of obstacles...not just traps but bushes, trees, etc. make this links course interesting to try to carry them or hit around. Greens are mostly flat..not much break. Neat incorporation of its chicken emblem throughout the course. I'm guessing this was a farm house at some point. Only par 6 I've ever played. Rained a couple inches night before yet course was still very playable. Open fairways as no houses on the course so you can be off some with your drives and still score well. $75 is way too much but for a hot deal you must play this course if you're in the area.

Course was in very good condition. The greens were in very good shape. Moderate speed on the greens. Fairways and tees were in very good shape also. Bunkers were flooded due to rain previous night. Fun layout. Would play again.

After reading reviews, I was somewhat disappointed with the course. Maybe I just expected something a little nicer. For the course, I felt the value was only fair.

I noted the rangers were quick to correct golfers for no no's yet said nothing about the slow foursome in front of us. By hole nine, the group in front of us were two holes behind the group in front of them.

I probably will not return to Farmsted as there are too many nicer courses in the area for the same cost.

Outstanding course layout, challenging, but fair to all talent levels. Greens and fairways grasses were outstanding. Cart paths were smooth and well kept. The par 6 hole was outstanding, playing from one state go another (SC to NC). Will definitely go back.

First time playing course. Played as a single in the afternoon.

Course was very wet. Cart path only. It had rained the night before. Did not realize that it had rained that hard.

Greens were in good shape. Putts were very true.

Very fair course. Noting tricky about it. Wide open fairways. Very forgiving off of the tee.

We played a round at Farmstead in the brutal heat of August and the course couldn't have been in better condition. Clubhouse staff was friendly, grill made us an excellent breakfast before the round. There was no beverage cart that day, so the starter allowed us to take our cooler. Played worse than average, but had an enjoyable round. Made the first par 6 of my life!!

Played 07/31/2017 and enjoyed it very much. All of the staff personnel were very friendly, helpful, humorous, and a pleasure to talk with. The course is a very fair course that is always kept in very good condition. A crowded morning when we teed of and it took us right at 4 hours to play. A good pace of play. This course is off the beaten path but well worth your the time to find. I will play in the future and recommend you do also!
