I've played this course a couple of times in the past. It's an old-style course that winds through the pine trees of southern South Carolina. The condition is average to good, so it's not great but it's acceptable. The greens rolled true but were of medium, speed, neither fast nor slow. And I'm not sure what the other review is talking about, a fee of $46. You can walk the course during the week for $14. Overall, if you're close to Barnwell, you won't be disappointed.

First time player there .course was well maintained greens and fairways nice. Staff very friendly. Carts in good condition.<br/> now the bad news<br/> $46 green fee! Not worth the price, there are other clubs that charge this eg. The river, cedar creek, aiken golf club, these courses are worth that much.this is not, although its is nice its not worth this amount.<br/> $35-36 would be a fair price.<br/> I will return but not for this amount.

Don't let the length fool you as a lot of the distance is due to short par 3s and being a par 71 instead of 72. Fairways are pretty slender and there are plenty of hazards and doglegs to work around. Best course within 40 miles of Barnwell.

Club house manager was very accommodating and super friendly. We had a frost delay and he had a cup of coffee with us in the club house. I brought my wife and 7 year old son for the first time and they had a blast. I would love to see the course during the regular golf season. I would recommend this course for sure.

This course for the amount of rain in the area over the last several weeks was in awsome shape. The greens were receptive to shots and were putting at a good speed. Everything about Sweeteater was good and a great value. Can't wait to go back and play again.

My son and I played this course for the first time after 3 days of rain in the area. The course may have had 2 or 3 very small muddy areas in the fairways, but overall was in great condition. It is also very scenic. Great course and well worth the money!

Enjoyed playing this course. The back nine is more difficult than the front nine. Greens were a little slow.
