Avoid until the greens are repaired

This is a lovely course, well designed with many challenging holes and modest green fees. However, almost all of the greens have very large patches of dead grass and/or dirt, which make scoring well virtually impossible. It looks like a combination of the consequences of the winter weather and disease. The course needs to be closed and the greens completely overhauled before I would recommend that anyone play it.

Great Layout - fun course

This course has a challenging but fair layout, plenty of doglegs and water. Tee boxes could use some maturity. Early in the season so maintenance was minimal. Pro shop and club house friendly. Foursome played in 4 hours, needed to allow time due to not being familiar with the course. Would play again if in the area.

Glad I played Here!!!

My family and I make the trip from Greeneville, TN to I.O.P. every year (22 yrs now). This was the first time playing Shadowmoss. I played last Monday (6/19) and had the first tee time. It was an excellent experience for me. Other than the tee boxes being a little rough, I loved the course. The fairways and greens are well taken care of. The staff is the friendliest group of people I have ever met at a golf course. Thanks so much!!!! I will be back!!!!

Great choice for the budget-conscious

Shadowmoss is the epitome of a reliable neighborhood public track that caters to die-hard local golfers. The clubhouse, while neither posh nor pretentious, offers all the amenities of a working man's country club. I arrived early for my 11:15 tee time and decided to get something to eat in the grill. I can safely say the $5.65 breakfast plate was the best breakfast I've had in a while. The grill/bar area was alive and bustling every time I walked in. There was an energy that was infectious. The practice range was a bit sketchy, almost as if it had been closed for repairs but people ignored it and hit out there anyway. The grass was knee-high in places and the yardage signs were leaning to one side or another. Very Stephen King-esque. The course itself was pretty good. There were a few holes that seemed a bit awkward, but otherwise it was a pleasant round. The short par 4 finishing hole left me wanting something a bit more robust, as most players will hit iron off the tee to avoid the pond fronting the green. I must also say that many of the tee boxes had no grass, and in fact were unstable to the footing. I don't know if they were diseased or what happened, but they need to be completely re-sodded. If I were a local I'd probably play this course frequently just to manage my budget, but it won't make my golf buddies trip list. It just doesn't have the quality or memorability.

This club is wonderful

I play at 'The Moss' every week. The course is fun, conditions are good for the amount of play and cost, the men's group is fun, the staff is welcoming and enjoyable, and competition is available for all levels. I consider the Moss my second home.

Nothing great

Course was in decent shape. Bunkers are inconsistent and greens were fair. The layout is mediocre and some holes are very narrow. Pace of play is typically slow. The range is in bad shape and the clubhouse needs to be renovated. There are much better courses in the area.

Decent

There are much nicer courses in the area however this one is decent. The yardage markers were not great and the traps were distressed but the greens were in fair shape.

Overall a very nice course. Tees are a little rough on some holes but very nice otherwise. I had a great day.

Great Condition

Fourth time on this course. Best conditions I have ever seen. Fairways best shape of any course in the Low Country I have played in last six weeks (of course I only play public courses) Only criticism is that the senior tees are a bit neglected compared to the regular tees. Fun day and good test of golf for a bogey golfer.
