The Preserve at Verdae sprawls across a lush landscape of rolling hills and meadows covered with beautiful Carolina forests. Formerly known as Verdae Greens, the golf course was completely revamped but one of the primary goals of the renovation was to find harmony between golf and nature. The carefully reworked course does just that, blending seamlessly into its scenic surroundings. Rambling brooks wander across the layout and provide water hazards on a few holes. The wind is also a major factor on this golf course. The breezes can be either light and refreshing or strong and blustery, making proper club selection even more important. The most photographed hole on the golf course is the par-3 second. If you're lucky enough to come when the azaleas are blooming, this hole offers a breathtaking setting.

As an out of country visitor, I had heard & read very good things about this course. Some target golf, some wide fairways but fair. Greens had recently been seeded/punched but were excellent. They were quick & rolled well. I played a day after a torrential down pour & save for a few spots, the course drained very well. I paired up with 2 locals, Donna & John, & had a great day. I booked a Hot Deal on GolfNow & arrived early & Nate in the pro shop accommodated me by let me out early, which was much appreciated. The starter drove out to the twosome that had teed off already & asked if they could wait a sec & let me join them. We played in 4 hrs, with no one in front & the foursome behind us a hole or 2 back. I gave 5 Stars all round, much deserved.

As usual, the course looks great and very green thanks to a daily rain. The greens are awesome and still fun to read especially speed wise. Do yourself a favor and play this course......you won't regret it......except for maybe your score ;)

When I booked the a tee time at The Preserve at Verdae I did not know what to expect, however, I will surely return to play this course. The greens were in excellent shape, they rolled fast and true. The fairways and rough were kept up very well, I was amazed at how green everything was that deep into the summer. A few of the tee boxes were in bad shape, but they did not detract from the enjoyment. A few of the holes were a little wacky; having never played it before certainly made it more difficult. As far as refreshments go, the pro shop had a great selection of craft beer to enjoy at the turn or to grab from the beverage cart. All in all, The Preserve at Verdae was a great golfing experience!

Out-of-towner looking for a good course and found it. Great layout, tight and scenic. Fairways and greens were in excellent shape. A few tee boxes, particularly on par 3s are in need of repair. Challenging layout, tight but fair, meshed well with topography. Friendly staff, but pro shop/amenities were lacking. Convenient to I-85. Good value for the money.

I really enjoy this course and it’s in great condition! You’ll use every club in your bag. Low handicaps will be challenged from the tips and a good challenge for higher handicaps from yellow and white tees. I strongly recommend you play here!! From tee to green the conditions are super!

If they want more weekday play I think they could lower the price a little. But it’s one of the best plays in Greenville!

This course is one of those rare courses where each hole presents a different type of shot challenge. Whether it's a long par 3 or a short par 4 where driver is a poor choice from nearly any tee, this course layout forces you to think about each drive and approach and putts outside of 8 feet are often tricky reads.

Even with the recent wacky weather in the Upstate of SC, the superintendent and his grounds crew have kept the course and greens in really good shape.

I really enjoy playing this course.

This course is challenging... especially on "tough day" where every pin is set up on the most difficult area of the green. Greens were in excellent shape with many challenging dog legs and out of bounds created by water, streams and lakes. If you don't know this course, or play with someone who does, there are surprises where streams and hazards, not visible from the tee, will eat your shot, unless you are told to lay up, etc., Staff was professional and positive. Pace was excellent.

Enjoy, but if you are a bogey golfer like me, expect to donate a couple balls to the course even when you make a "good" shot.

Booked on GolfNow for 2 players at a great price. Course is still coming out of winter, but greens in nice shape. A little wet from recent rain, but we picked a nice warm day to play. Paired w another young fellow and made a nice afternoon of it. Course is a real challenge with some forced carries and blind shots. Playable with bailout options. Would play it again. If you spray the ball off the tee, you will have a tough day.

We played here on a Friday in early March. The course was in ok shape. Greens were very grainy and that is to be expected. I enjoyed it a lot. We were able to play 36 holes in about 6.5 hours. Great tough and fun course.
