A new nine and and old one for me

I used to live in Florence and played the original 18 often. They were just in the planning stages for the woodlands 9 when I moved away and was never able to play it. All I can say is, what a shame that I had to wait this long to play the woodlands. Meandering through the woods this course layout is really fantastic. The best part of the layout is that they have several teeing options to make it fair for average golfers and really tough for low handicappers. With water features and some tight fairways this 9 is a true test of golf. Then there is the second none, one of the originals that I have played often in the past. A fun layout with direction changes everywhere to make you use every club in your bag.

Amazing place in the middle of nowhere!

We were traveling from Myrtle Beach to Augusta and decided to try Traces. What an amazing place! The staff was more than welcoming, the course fair and fun. Fairways are ample, but not huge, and there’s water in play on a couple holes. The greens were quick but not penalizing, and rolled perfectly true.
We had a sunny day, a virtually empty course, and one of the most fun rounds we’ve had in a while. It is a highly underrated course, and one you should try if you’re ever making the trek through rural South Carolina.

Course is in Excellent shape

The course has 27 holes. I played 18. It is a fairly basic layout. White tees are very playable and back tees would provide a decent challenge.

But hats off to the superintendant.

The course is in very very good shape. The greens were perfect. Good approach shots would stop quickly and they were smooth and true.

Mint condition greens

a short overall distance course with several pro length par 4's in excess of 450 yards from the blue tees. this is a 27 hole course so there always seems to be a fast way around the course. 3 some finished in under 3:45.

Great value

The course was in pretty good shape. The greens are a little slow but in nice rolling shape. The pace of play was such that we played in about 3 hours and 20 minutes. My only complaint was the Heat it was really hot.

Course is in great shape

Me and a couple friends played this course on 7/7. I had not played at this course in several years and was very impressed. The front nine (Meadows) was in excellent shape. The greens were in as good a shape as any public course I've played this year. The back nine (Woodlands) was good but not in nearly as good as shape as the front. Some of the sand traps had grass and a couple of the greens had some sand or bald spots. Great value . Staff was very friendly as well.

Best course in the area

I play this course often. The guys at Trace's have this 27 hole complex in excellent condition! Of all the courses I have played this year, I have to say that Traces is in the best condition. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, I would definitely recommend that if you are in the area you should play it,

Beautiful Course

As a beginner, I don't know too much of the golfing lingo. The courses (3 nine holes) are located in and around a subdivision. Great play. Lost a few balls, expected to as a beginner. Had a great time and met some nice people.

Course was Immaculate!! Staff was okay except for the guy directing golfers to certain holes & places & times. He even got mad because we stopped to get a hot dog & use the bathroom after the front nine. Other than that, the course was Awesome!!!

Beautiful Course

Traces is an absolutely beautiful course, it is very challenging also. My only complaint is there was a guy on the staff who was rushing people to play in certain places & had a bad attitude. He was mad because we were ordering food & using the bathroom after 9 holes, instead of just telling the next group to go ahead. Other than that, it is probably one the top five or six courses I have ever played. This is a gorgeous golf club!

No title

The staff was great, the course is in very good shape, would recommend to any player at any level of play. The only problem is the golf now website, which charges an additional $ 5.00 per person when other websites only charge about $ 2.00. So what is the deal with that?
