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.
