About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 6568 yards
Slope 124
Rating 70.8

Charwood Country Club has been family-owned since first opening in 1978 with a nine-hole course. Another nine was added in 1985 and then the third and final nine-hole course in 1993. The three nines are called the Red, White, and Blue. The golf courses can all be played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Red/Blue Course is where most players begin. The front nine is moderately difficult while the back nine, the Blue, is longer and more challenging. Towering pines line the gently rolling fairways and there are a few strategically placed bunkers that come into play. The Blue is the most formidable of the three nines but overall each combination is player friendly enough for a wide range of skill levels. The club is a local favorite that is known for being one of the most affordable rounds in the area.

Better Now Than In The Past

I used to play Charwood as part of my high school team. It dreaded playing because the course was in such bad shape. This course has come a long way! It was beautiful! I was extremely happy! The course was in great condition. I will be back for sure. Nice work Charwood. Keep it up!

Great value for the money

I have played this course for over 25 years, so I have seen the transformation from a hackers course to where they are today.
It has a great driving range and putting green for warming up, and a really nice grill for the turn (try the slaw dogs... you will not be disappointed). There are three 9 hole courses; all have challenges that are great for high handicappers as well as the guys hitting from the tips.

In the interest of full disclosure they had some issues a few months back and lost a few of the greens (so did several other courses around Columbia), but the grounds crew have REALLY done an incredible job with the greens (and a few new tee boxes) and are now in great shape. If it has been a while since you have played there you are really in for a treat. As of right now I'm not sure of a better value for the money in Columbia.

Decent course. Better than expected.

The greens were actually in good shape. I think this course gets a bad rap, but it's a really good deal at $17

Good place to spend your time

this is my second time to play here. It has 27 holes in red, white, and blue. The 5th hole in white is kind of challenging, you have to hit the ball cross the huge lake, and they even have a water hazard after the lake. I played the green tee, and scored 100 in the end. Be care of you hitting, don't hit it into the water. LoL...

Course conditions

The only real complaint that I have is a fact that the course conditions were not really good. I feel like the course could've and should've been in better shape. The grass was not mown in many places and it just did not look appealing to play the course.

Charwood CC

Charwood CC is a southern style cc environment that provides a positive fun lovers experience to people of all ages, which were present and playing that Feb 1st day. The staff is friendly and courteous, so were the folks playing on the course. The mid winter course conditions were good. Enjoy a round there when the weather permits and a snack at the bar. Great food deals too. Love the hot dogs. Multiple screens playing sports channels will entertain on the 19th. See yall there!

Not bad for the price

The greens are hard and fast this time of year. The pin placements are usually tricky as well. I wish the tee boxes were in better shape but, for less that 20 buck I shouldn't complain.

Always enjoyable

I've played Charwood for many years, and while it's not what it used to be, it's still one of my favorites for a laid back round. Easy, wide-open course layout, staff is always super friendly and if you catch the grill, food's pretty good. The greens were looking rough for awhile (still a few holes that are), but they shut down each 9 at separate times (There are 27 total) and put in some work to repair them. You can usually play for under $20. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a casual golf day.

A little rough

This place was a little further out than I expected. Also, the fairways were tight often butted up against another hole causing for some interesting 2nd shots. Greens were in bad shape in areas, and other areas fairly good. Distances marked on signs appeared off on a couple of holes, some by as far as 30 yards, causing for surprises!! Also, had some pleasure riders floating around the course just riding in golf carts.... I'm no high-class golfer and this just seemed like a strange area for a course... Nice lady in the pro shop and locals seemed nice. Just an odd round of golf.

Issues with greens

With only one opportunity to play this course, I do not know if the greens are always this way but 5 or 6 of the 18 greens were in poor condition. They were trying to repair some but it was still sandy and bare in spots.
Also the email you receive will say no personal coolers yet there is 1 water cooler on the 18 holes we played. Bring plenty to drink on a hot day or grab a drink before you leave the clubhouse.

Good price!

For the price it was fine. Bad spots on the greens as others have said in their reviews. Golfed with a foursome, and we all had a good time.

Charwood Course

The overall condition of the course was poor, especially the greens. Many of them had large areas where there was no grass at all. Being that I'm a former member at Charwood I found the condition of the course to be disappointing. It seems to have been suffering from months, if not years of neglect.

Need grounds keeper

Course in awful conditions.
Every green was almost half bare and rough.
Tee boxes so hard you could not get a tee in the ground.
Sprinklers running in fairways during course of play.
Staff arrived an hour late to open up.

Don't waste your time or money.

Course is in horrible shape. Not much grass on the greens. Greens are mainly sand and fairways are bad too.

Just plugged the greens

Greens were just aerated and sanded and were in fairly terrible shape, so putting was not great. Several tee boxes were moved up to areas not usually tee boxes. Overall the course was not well groomed but for the $10 deal, it was worth the money (probably not worth $20). Fairways were in decent shape. Enjoyed the round in spite of the area near the greens. Played from the middle tees which ended up being very short on most holes.
