About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Par 72
Length 6264 yards
Slope 126
Rating 70.8

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.

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.

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.

A Fun Course To Play

This course has some challenging holes to play with plenty of water, doglegs, hazards, and bunkers to deal with on some of the holes, especially on the back nine. The greens had been aerated but putted okay. They will be better in the coming weeks. The fairways are in good shape. If you get in the rough, it is hard to hit a good shot out of it. On hole 18, you have to hit across the lake to the green. This is a public course. Not your country club atmosphere. We enjoyed playing here. I will return to play here again.

ECONOMICAL

COURSE WAS IN FAIR CONDITION AND WAS NOT TOO DIFFICULT FROM 5800 YDS WHITE TEES BUT SENIOR TEES AT GOLD PLAYS 5500 TDS SO WOULD LIKELY BE BETTER FOR SHORTER HITTERS. RATES OF $17.00 WELL WORTH PLAYING THIS COURSE!!
