This has always been one my favorite local course to play. Staff is always friendly and I've never seen the course in bad shape. Just beware the greens are fast but I'm a fan of fast greens.

I played Saluda Valley CC today with my friend Ken. We had a great day at the golf course. Every thing was first rate; the service was friendly, the food was excellent, and the golf course was in fantastic condition. The fairways have been over-seeded and the fairways and greens were in great condition. Even the weather was great; 70 degrees and bright sunshine on the 15th of December. All in all I would recommend this course highly at this time.

The course was in decent shape for the time of the year. They were mowing seemingly around every hole we played. But we got used to it. The only problem was there was an extremely slow foursome playing from the tips that couldnt hit drives beyond 50 to 75 yards, second thru tenth shots only going 10 to 15 yards and then trying to read the greens like they were on the PGA. They refused to let anyone play through and created a log jam behind them. We finally just skipped a hole and finished 18 and they were still on 14.<br/> Other than that, I was well pleased with the course!

This course is always in excellent shape, and to play it for under $15 is unbeatable. Be prepared for the possibility of a slower round due to its popularity. There is nothing fancy here, but the layout has good character and the course is always well kept.

A Very Nice Golf Course hidden away right off highway 29 Williamston SC. I like to walk and the terrain is not an obstacle nor is it overly flat. Open and relatively challenging at the same time. Hole layout is a good mix and keeps you interested in coming back, again and again.

From the time I drove up I knew I would like this course. Nice little country club without big ticket amenities. Course was right in front of you. Hit it and enjoy. Greens where perfect. Tee boxes and fairways good. Not super hard, but you must hit good shots. Will play all your clubs.

Didn't feel welcomed or put out by the staff. I could tell the guy in the pro shop didn't give a rip because I was on a golf now hot deal. Acted like I was an idiot when I didn't grab the cart out the back door to grab my clubs in the parking lot. I was going to walk them around, but he basically scolded me. Then told me to hop in line on the first tee. There were two foursomes in line. They took 30 minutes to clear the tee box.... All while I could have been warming up. Pretty poor course management If you ask me. You cannot buy booze if you aren't a member. I didn't see that anywhere on the website, oh well.

Now with the negative out of the way, for 15-20$ on a hot deal it's a steal. Beautiful tree lined fairways, well maintained grass with distinctions for fairway, 1st and second cut. The greens were a bit patchy but we are just coming out of winter I expect they'll have that figured in the next couple weeks. Even with the patches the ball was still rolling true. The greens were probably running a 5 or 6. It was wet the morning I played. I felt like this course deserved a good review even if the guy in the pro shop was a grouchy old man. It was just too much fun to play.

Had a great time at Saluda Valley on a Sunny Saturday. Starter was friendly, clubhouse nothing to write home about.

Tee boxes on most holes were in superb condition. Greens were receptive, and very very fast. Paired up with a member who said the greens aren't normally as fast as they were that day.

One particular dogleg on the back (I think 16# is very difficult. From the Blues #tips) the tee shot requires a 190 yard shot, and then your second shot is 170 yards uphill, so choose your clubs carefully. Probably the hole that intrigued me the most.

Course is great I live near Greer, SC and it only took me 1/2 hour to get there. Worth the drive for sure!

Positives: No houses on the course, so if you can find your ball, you can play it. Wide fairways. Friendly staff.

Negatives: No restroom on the course at mid turns.
