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.

Food & BeverageSnacks
The course is awesome for the price, greens were very slow. Didn’t know the layout and there are many doglegs, so I managed to give this course a couple golf balls SMDH. The greens on the back are in poor shape but I enjoyed it, for the price I will definitely play it again.
Dont need driver on every hole
I suppose its too early to tell and in couple months the greens and fairways will be much closer to ready than in march.
My umptenth time playing
Almost every month my father and I make it a goal to go golfing. This course may not be the prettiest but holy cow is it fun. Anytime we go to crystal lakes there is practically no one there and we have free range of the course. As so said it’s not the prettiest but for the money it’s so worth it. The course is extremely fun especially in the front with semi open fairways and great grip and rip par fours. The back can be a little challenging (DARN YOU WATER) but allows for a quiet pace and good atmosphere when playing the more challenging holes. Overall this course is one of my favorites and will be for time to come!
Another great round
For the money overall this course is becoming my favorite course in the Midlands, The rain makes it a little tough but overall I enjoy it tremendously.
Worth the effort
Okay course. Price was great, Will think twice before making the drive to play again.
Bang for buck
I played 18 here with a cart under $20 on a hot deal so I went into it without much reservation. I read up before hand that the back 9 was added after the fact and you can tell with the hole layouts. The greens are in mildly to bad shape but it’s a great time killer course. Especially for the price. There’s some unforgivable holes with the water positioning that can be frustrating to any golfer. Over all great course to shake the rust or spend a lazy day.
Course is in good condition. Good size greens that rolled well. Made for a fun round. Will play again.
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
