Northern South Carolina Bargain Jewel

This state park off US 52 is a steal this time of year. With Pinehurst charging peak season prices, this is a reasonable option. Greens were superb, pace of play outstanding. Bunkers are hardly ever good in these kind of systems(state parks), but this way a joy, and we come here often. We easily played 36 holes in six hours, and one of us is almost 73.

Look forward to coming back !

Go play here

Great Greens!! Great fairways. Rough was cut about 3-4 inches so It played tough today. Lot of forced carry over bunkers or hitting 200 to a hole short. Locals were friendly. On a holiday expected it to be busier but it was wide open at 8:30am. Worth the drive from Charlotte. Can’t wait to go back.

Awesome Course!

This is one of the best courses I’ve ever played. Beautiful layout in fantastic condition. Fairways and Greens are impeccable! Bunkers could benefit from some new / nicer sand (only improvement needed). Staff super friendly and kind. Can’t wait until my next round at Cheraw!!

Great Course

First time playing this course and look forward to playing this gem again soon. The course conditions were fantastic. Tee boxes were in excellent shape, fairways well groomed and full. The greens were in excellent shape. I could not be more impressed with the course conditions, amenities and helpful staff in the pro shop!

Best course for the money I played all year

Challenging and scenic layout.. Course was in great shape . Very inexpensive and wonderful pace of play for a Sunday morning. It would easily be my home course if it wasn’t so far from Charlotte.

Pristine Condition

Tee boxes and fairways were lush . Greens were fast and smooth . Best condition of a Charlotte area Course I’ve played this year . Fantastic value . Hit it in the rough and this course is an absolute beast . The bunkers could use a little sand , but it didn’t distract from a very enjoyable and challenging round on a very picturesque layout.

Well Maintained Gem

We so enjoyed our first round at Cheraw State Park. So many very pretty holes. Front tees were female friendly. Greens were lightning quick but in great shape. Would only ask the maintenance crew or pro shop crew make sure there is water in all of the water jugs. It was 100 degrees today and one hole had only one keg and it was empty.

WoW to say the least

Played & reviewed this course a few years ago. This course has had a complete turn around. I met Superintendent Chris while out on the course. He was such a knowledgeable guy and you can tell he is putting his pride behind this place! Greens were the best around the area. Rolled very true! Kudos to the golf course staff.

Best greens I’ve played in a long time

Through the years I have played this course about twice a year and they replaced the greens last year year with tift eagle greens. Y’all, they are as close to perfection as you can get... very firm but perfect. The rest of the course always seems to be in good condition if you are in the fairway. Staff in the clubhouse... awesome, bought a pullover and he cut it 25% and threw in 2 buckets of golf balls. The range was extremely nice and great grass to hit of of..... We live about 7 hours away and we play on very nice courses all over Ga. and nothing else has been close to having greens this good.

Go to place to escape winter

Great course, staff here are so nice you wont believe it! Clubhouse has an awesome atmosphere with pro shop, pool table and clubhouse sandwiches with drinks. Top notch practice facility and putting green. Course is challenging and fun. The layout is very secluded in a woodsy state park with a few holes that view the lake. Very comfortable area. We stay a week every spring to escape the winter up north. Highly reccomend.

Just really enjoy playing this course. Most of the time the course is not overly crowded and the rate of play is good. Some of the holes were cart path only. This is totally understandable due to the amount of rain that we are continuing to receive. It is a fun course to play and is well maintained.
