Crystal Lakes Golf Course
Crystal Lakes is a municipal golf course located next to Dillon Park in Sumter. The course originally opened as a nine-hole course in 1989 but expanded due to popularity. It offers plenty of challenges but it is a course that will reward good course management and strategy but it is not overly punishing if you're errant off the tees. The course quickly introduces you to its challenges with water hazards coming into play on the first five holes. The opening hole is a tricky par 3 that has a unique peninsula green. The rest of the par 3s on this course are no easy feat either. Crystal Lakes may not be the area's most challenging but it is one of the best values in a destination that is known for its golf.

First time playing here. Great value for the money. Greens were in excellent shape. Pick up a couple clubs from the stash of used clubs.
The back 9 needs to be redone and the greens had a lot of I think mold. it could be taken better care . it has a lot of potential.
Great lil course
We love this lil gem not long by modern standards but great for high to mid handicappers my wife luvs this course for that reason I play off single figures and I love the the wedge workout and the finish is awesome great value for money only comment the tees need some watering to soften them up
Great price for basic but enjoyable course. Front side greens much better than back side. Back side hard, mostly barren but for poanna sprigs. Fairways pretty good and much better layout than expected.
Very enjoyable round.
Pretty course, some interesting/challenging holes. Greens rolled true. Very enjoyable round.
You get what you pay for
Let me start by saying that’s this course is truly fun to play the amount of water on the back 9 will have you cursing yourself if you don’t play it right. If this course was tended to properly it would be one of the best I’ve played. Sadly due to lack of watering and cutting the fairways and greens can be a little tricky. Overall I love playing here with my father every other week the price alone is what brings us back.
Decent course for the money.
Course was in ok shape, many of the greens were in rough shape. Some of the staff was not friendly at all, they’ll just stare at you when you walk in to the main shop area. Overall it was ok for the price, probably will play again.
Always a great deal
Course was a little soggy after all the rain this past weekend. Staff is always friendly.
Rough around the Edges
This is definitely a shot makers course. Not long but pin point accuracy is needed. Rough is natural and wild, hard to get out of. Enjoyable course though. I will play again while visiting my son at Shaw AFB.
Little gem in Sumter
Fun course greens fairways and tee boxes all in great condition last hole was awesome great value for 10.00 excellent course for beginners to seniors was not long so the low handicaps may not appreciate this was lots of fun
course was good greens were burnt due to snow the week before still putted good had a lot of breaks hd too wait o a 5ome in front that would not let u go thru other than that will play again
Love playing at the lake.
My brothers and I play at least 4 times a year there and we enjoy yourself each time we go
Great for price.
Great course for locals. Good value for moderate to high handicap players.
Course layout was whack had to search for tee boxes for several holes
Can't beat paying $15 for a round of golf.
Best course for the money in the area
This course is very popular w/ the locals. It's fun and challenging. Clubhouse is ok but could be better. Staff is top notch.
Good day out
Challenging par fives and some good par fours with strategic dog legs right and left
Passing through? Hot Deal worthy.
Fun course. Pretty short but if you get out of control going for the gusto tee shot you could land yourself in trouble. There are shortcuts available but you better be accurate. If you're "on" with your driver and wedge game you could really go low here. This course is a perfect warm-up for drivers heading towards Myrtle.
