Nice friendly course

This is a nice 9 hole course. Staff super nice. Would have been a great day if they hadn't had almost 2 inches of rain the night before. That was out of their control. I will return again when in S.C.

Good value for practice

Can’t beat $10 for 18 including a cart. Overall this course has improved since the county took it over. Fairways are in pretty good shape. Greens need some help though. Several had large bald patches and didn’t roll well because of that. Overall considering cost, a great place to work on your game.

Get what you pay for

For the price, it wasn’t terrible. Grass wasn’t mowed for awhile, even in the fairways. For a holiday it was minimal play and the course has a fun layout.

Outstanding Golf Getaway

For the value this is an outstanding course! It’s a challenging 9 holes that test you. Perfect for first time golfers or friends that come into town who don’t have a lot of time that only have 3 hours. If you want to golf a full round just play it twice. You’ll want to golf the second hole again! GREAT COURSE FOR THE MONEY!

This course has great features.

Great greens and tee box. only complaint is fairway needs to be mowed lower or more often. Grass was a little higher than most courses.

Truly A Goat Track/R Neck City

Myself and a couple of buddies were on a golf trip and on the way home we decided to take a detour to this little course. We arrived mid morning and we had to wait for about a half hour before someone returned to the shop . There was a sign on the door saying the guy was out on the course. When he finally returned 45 minute later . Shop was dirty and smelly,ROY was in shorts and a t shirt, We went in, checked in a and needed a few things. Poor selection . So we asked about a practice facility,only a little putting green surrounded by weedy grass for chipping and an overgrown green surface for putting. Should have known at that point. Out on the course conditions and care of the course worsened. Literally every teeing area was overgrown with very little grass or none at all. Fairways were no different. centipede cow pasture grass , thinned out and weedy. Tall weeds growing in a couple of the fairways. one was over 2 feet tall.Literally in the middle of the fairway! All but one of the greens had been mowed to short, scalped, with burn lines and mower lines.

By the third hole all we could do was laugh. Then it did get more interesting , a group of locals caught up wearing jean shorts and t shirts. They had been drinking heavily. They invited us to join them. We said should be good for a few laughs! As it turned out we were right. We have never met a more local colorful group of people ,One guy changed balls and or moved his ball at least a club length on every shot in the fairway. I inquired about this and he said it was a local rule , everyone does it here at dogwood hills, next came a new lesson in etiquette, At this course it is OK to walk on someones putting line, burp , break wind , walk around , talk, make gestures all the while someone is lining up and putting. Oh and it's OK to drive literally up to the green in your cart. Almost on the green.

Next came the gossip. Oh what fun, evidently the course is owned by the county. Well , because none of the locals had a say in who works here it is rumored that no one is happy because Joe bobs brother got the job. Or that all the employees get to play for free and all others have to pay. Or that the employees can bring a guest for free but if your not their relative you don't stand a chance.
Next came the information about a fight during the Thursday night blitz. They have a blind draw for teams and supposedly the blind draw is not so "blind" as the same teams always win and a lot of gossip and people are very upset. Well it came to pass a few weeks ago that two sets of three were put together and they were none too happy about playing next to each other. Supposedly a guy named "Rickey Bobby" yes we have confirmation that this is his legal name, He and others were drinking heavily and called the opposing team member ( a black fellow) the N word several times during the round because of supposedly cheating during the round. ( but wait, i thought is was OK to cheat at dogwood hills because of local rules ,, LOL! ) So a fight ensued in the parking lot after the winners were announced. Several people were involved including staff. Oh boy , what's next. Well because it's a local crowd and there were relatives of the sheriff there no police were called in and the locals boys "took care of the "situation" ..

Now what's most concerning to me as a member of the public is that this is a county owned public facility. Is it a safe place to enjoy a round of golf. We were a few times concerned for our personal safety , because the group with us, the locals, were clearly over served alcohol and driving the carts erratically, swearing and in general acting in a questionable way, and What kind of Government Organization allows this sort of thing to continue, because according to our new friends, this is very common place, They all had a good laugh about it with us.

If you want the whole country boy / goat track experience at least once in your golfing career You must go here. But beware, you are in for it. Have thick skin, try to laugh , expect the worst course conditions you will ever experience and make sure to have 911 on the speed dial because you will run into some unsavory characters who at the drop of the hat will want to take you behind the wood shed if you offend them in any way. ( but wait, make sure the 911 goes to YOUR local police , not the cousin county facility, because , remember about the Thursday night thing. )

Hope you enjoyed the review and best of luck to you and your game.

Challenging 9 Hole Course

I’ve read the reviews about this course, but really doubted that a nine hole golf course could be challenging and eventful. Man was I ever wrong! One must play the course twice just to attempt to gain back the beating received on the first time around! This was mine first time playing the course and it will not be my last. Plays narrow, blind at times, and unforgiving in the rough. The fairways needed work and at the time cutting. I played a day after the 4th of July where each flag stick had a flag attached. To ensure the flags never touched the ground, there were flag stick holders on each hole allowing the Flag to maintain it’s honor. Impressive! Play the course and you will enjoy it. Hints: number 2 plain tough, play it simple; and number 7 and 9 looks easy but looks are very deceiving...enjoy.

Customers are walking away

We Pay taxes on this golf course in Colleton County. They are talking about increasing their prices. I guess to pay for all the new equipment they are getting. Three of the nine holes are usually a muddy mess. I’m disappointed in the way I have been treated and talked to by the guy running the place. He made it clear that he does not like the Golfnow app and that he wants out of the contract. I’ve done a lot of promoting this golf course to a lot of people who stopped playing in there and I personally got them to go back and start playing at Walterboro. Because I want to see the golf course succeed. But when the people in charge are becoming greedy, well over time it is going to fizzle out. Because people are not gonna be treated mean and keep putting money here in Walterboro.

BS! This course is a goat track. You must be one of the local rednecks we encountered when we played a few weeks ago. You were wearing shorts and a t shirt and were obviously intoxicated by the way you behaved while coming up on us from behind. Being rude, loudmouthed and in general poor etiquette., We also heard there was a fight in the parking lot a few Thursdays ago. Nice place right?

Don't waste your time or money!

This course was, by far, the worst golf course we have ever played. My first clue should have been how cheap it was for 18 holes and a cart. My second clue might have been how filthy the white door was going into the Pro Shop (and I use that term lightly). But when the first hole was a severe dog-leg right (one of 3) and the ground was either weeds or mushy weeds (extremely hard to even tell where the fairway was), it didn't take us long to figure out that we wouldn't be playing our second round on the 9-hole course. Between the 2 of us, we lost 9 balls without even being in the woods. Most of the tee boxes were slanted and some were even void of grass (as in, hitting off of dirt). Don't waste your time or money. There are lots of other courses out there!
