Type Municipal/Public
Located in Orangeburg, Hillcrest Golf Club is ranked as one of the best municipal courses in the Carolinas. It is a championship course that is both challenging and at the same time playable. The course is wide open off the tees but there is the occasional raised bunker lurking along some of the fairways. The undulating greens are fair but challenging with strategically placed bunkers guarding the putting surfaces. Mature trees line the fairways and there are a few water hazards but they do not pose a serious threat. Overall, it is a golf course that is enjoyable for all skill levels. It offers a good balance of player-friendly elements with an interesting mix of challenges. Hillcrest G.C. also has a driving range, putting and chipping greens, and a practice bunker. In addition to golf, the club has four lighted tennis courts.

Needs improvement

I read a lot of reviews saying the greens were basically gone. I’m happy to say that the greens were in decent condition, however the fairways and landscaping were not. I played here because I was planning to play in a tournament here in June. It is a good course for beginners, wide open, but not for the serious golfer. Almost every par 4 is a drive and a wedge and all of the par 5s are reachable in two shots without much effort. Par 3s were decent. The worst part was out of the course’s control. There was a bunch of obnoxious hip hop music blasting in a parking lot bordering the 12th hole. You could hear it all over the golf course and it was very distracting. I did like the $35 all you can play rate. The course was pretty much wide open and when I did run into a group, I could just cut over to another hole The course was pretty much wide open and when I did run into her group, I could just cut over to another hole.

Okay place

It was spring but course burnt out and no in best shape. Pretty good layout and greens in fair condition and fast. Will be better once grass starts growing in and if improved I would recommend Hillcrest. Friendly staff.

Turning Stone
The longest of Turning Stone Resort’s three championship courses, at 7,315 yards, this Tom Fazio design was home to the Turning Stone Resort Championship from 2007 – 2010. Walk the fairways that past champions Tiger Woods, Camilo Villegas, Matt Kuchar, Steve Flesch, and Dustin Johnson have all walked.

Much better

Dramatic improvement over a year ago. Course in really good shape. Still needs a little work but so much better than it was. Super value for the money. Great layout, not too difficult, not too easy.

Nice course for the money. Just be prepared to hit a draw and fade on the tee box.
