Type Semi-Private
Charwood Country Club opened in 1968 as a nine-hole course. Another nine was added in 1985 and then another in 1993. The three nines, named the Red, White, and the Blue, are played in different 18-hole combinations. The White was the original nine and while it may be the shortest at 2,843 yards, it's tougher than it appears. Towering pine trees line the fairways and there are a few tricky doglegs. Accuracy will be generously rewarded on this nine. The Red is the least challenging of the three nines and the Blue is known as the most formidable. The White/Red combination is the most player-friendly of the three courses but they are all generally quite forgiving. Charwood C.C. is situated in West Columbia, near the Columbia Metropolitan Airport. The club has garnered a local following, it's known for being one of the area's most affordable rounds.

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.
