Type Semi-Private
Par 35
Length 3304 yards
Slope 0
Rating 0.0
Cobblestone Park Golf Club in Blythewood boasts 27 championship holes. Formerly known as the University Club, the course hosts the University of South Carolina's golf teams. The holes are divided into three unique nines. The Garnet nine is the second longest of the three but it can feel quite lengthy thanks to the variety of elevation changes. The rolling terrain characterizes the golf course and adds to the diversity of the layout. Some of the highest points in Richland County can be found throughout, making the round as scenic as it is challenging. Strategically placed bunkers frame the greens and there are towering oaks and pines looming above the fairways. The tough layout will force you to use every club in your bag but the generous and inviting landing areas offer some respite.

Not great

Greens were good. Fairway and ruffs were spotty. Not what I expected from other reviews. Booking through golfnow was more expensive than had I called the course myself.

Cobblestone

Consists of 3 nines. garnet, black and gold. home of USC gamecock golf. Very hilly course, the playing areas are in good condition but old cart paths are very rough and broken up. Conditions off fairways can be improved. Whomever designed the layout of the clubhouse, pro-shop, bathrooms, etc should have been fired, terrible layout. what a terrible job they did.

Sandy Greens

Very disappointed when we pulled up to the course to see the greens had been punched for aerification and there was sand everywhere on them. There was so much sand on the greens that we didn't even bother putting. Usually GolfNow is good about putting an advisory about aerification but when I booked this time nothing was stated. Since then, there is now a warning about it. If I would have know then, I never would have booked this tee time. Terrible!!!!!!!!!

So why would you give the course a bad rating when that was Golfnow's mistake?

A course that everyone can enjoy.

I played Cobblestone just before a rain storm. It was hot and muggy but the wind had not picked up so it was very enjoyable. I was amazed at the condition of the course. I have been in Columbia visiting for a couple of weeks and the courses played have been in moderate condition at best, with significant winter kill and Black Algae issues. Cobblestone was in excellent condition with only two moderate spots of Black Algae. My congratulations to the grounds crew. The course played moderate with very adequate fairways from the member tees and the layout was exceptional. The course is laid out through an upscale development with the challenges of undulation, water and tree lined fairways. This is truly a course that everyone can enjoy.

A visual pleasure

A Florida-based golfer doesn't see many elevation changes, so this gem was a joy to play. From the condition of the course, to the layout, to the green complexes, to the bunkering, can't say enough good things about this course. The lone objection was to the couple of blind, uphill par 3's. Will make it a must stop on my trips north!

Great Course

Cobblestone is the best course in the Columbia, SC that we get to play with Hot Deals on Golf Now. It is always in great condition from tee to green. I have never had a complaint of the many times I’ve played there. They had some large groups playing which I had never faced before so pace of play was slow but that’s not normal for weekday play. I would put this on the top of my list of courses in the Columbia Area

Course was in decent shape, greens were punched recently. The pace of play was terrible and no starter or marshal on the course. Great course but they need a starter and a cart selling drinks and food on course.
