Girls at Grill fantastic and friendly. Cart Girl Haley work to get everyone happy.
Great course if you haven’t played it
Although it had been raining, the course drained well. The layout is very nice including a lot of elevation changes. The greens were in great shape along with the fairways. Great views of Lake Hartwell.
Wide Open Course Temps in the Mid 40s
As I've played a number of college courses, I wanted to play the Clemson University Walker Course over my winter break. I could not book a tee time more than 7 days in advance without staying on-site, so I used Golf Now instead.
I was pleased that the course was open given the amount of rain this Fall/Winter and in the days prior to my round, and happy that it was "cold" when I arrived to play as the course was empty. I only regret -- and was told later that I should have been informed by the Pro Shop by guys in the Pro Shop, ugh -- not taking a cart for the back 9. The walk on the back 9 was brutal (especially between 12 tee and 14 tee and 15 green to 16 fairway), and it definitely cost me strokes.
Given the rain, the course was in great shape -- cart path only signs did not impact me -- and despite "winter hole locations" the greens were in very good shape. The ball rolled well on the greens and the fairways were comparable to what I usually play in December on the RTJ Trail in Alabama (my usual destination).
I shot 40-45, but messed up on the 1st, 16th, and 18th holes to wreck a shot at going sub-80 in the final round of the year and before the new Rules go into effect. Tee shots on 9 and 18 are a little quirky for the first-time player, but the course was generally right in front of you and pleasant to play.
Never put a ball in a bunker during the 18 holes, so I cannot rate them, but they looked to be in decent shape given the conditions.
This facility is always in impeccable condition no matter the season. I make sure it is on my itinerary whenever I'm in the area.
Fun Course, good layout, pretty views
I played the Walker a few weeks ago and the conditions were very different today. The course was VERY wet due to a lot of rain over the prior few days. Today was cart path only and this is NOT a good course for cart path only due to the cart paths being so far away from teh target areas of the fairways (holes #5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14). It is MUCH better to walk the course than to play cart path only while riding in a cart. Unfortunately we were not told it was cart path only until we checked in with the starter at the first tee.
I always like playing The Walker course. It has very nice practice facilities, nice carts and a great course layout. There is plenty of trouble if you are slightly off line. The back nine is totally different than the front nine. The front nine is in and out of trees and elevation changes. The back nine is all around Lake Hartwell with many great views of the lake.

I purchased a round on Golf Now for $40 and when I got to the course I was told we each had to pay a $20.00 cart fee that is not part of Golf Now. I was surprised and annoyed that they try to put out a good deal on Golf Now then take your money to use a cart.
All in all, a great course. Just be careful when using Golf Now and be prepared to be annoyed at the club house when they charge everyone $20 for a cart.
Really fun course
Course was in great shape for middle of November. It is a very secenic course and a lot of fun holes. It’s challengoing without going overboard. I will definitely play again when I’m in the area again.
Walker Course on a perfect fall day!
Course was in great shape and I was able to meet some new friends on the links.
Great course ,well groomed ,friendly staff hot day so not crowded,outstanding deal on golf now
Awesome course along Lake Hartwell
Top notch course with pristine fairways and greens. No better place to play in the upstate of S.C. Beautiful views along lake Hartwell.
Very nice course
1st time playing The Walker Course and enjoyed it. Played purple tees and thought it was a fair test. You need to play your own game and bag the driver on some holes as shot placement is a priority over the grip it and rip it mentality. One thing I wasn't a fan of was the first cut off the greens...very soft and shaggy. Greens were still healing over from aerification but rolled pretty true. Definitely will play again!!!
The course has good layout...
I enjoyed playing the course, the greens were aerated two weeks ago, but others than that were great. I will definitely play there again.
This is my first time playing this course, and it didn't disappoint. I've always heard good things about this course, and wanted to see it for myself. This course has a good bit of carry on the tee shots, so be ready for that. Also, there is plenty of trouble if you are slightly off line. The back nine is kind of cool as it plays toward the lake, but don't let it fool you. The 16th hole, even though it is a par 5, the tee shot is tough. It requires you, from an elevated tee to carry it at least 250 yards just to clear the river. The 18th is also a difficult tee shot with a carry over water around 250 yards. All in all, a great course and looking forward to returning.
Very well manicured
Great course layout. Greens are superb. Restaurant was small and average.
Great course and well managed.
Love this course. Good challenging layout with views of Lake Hartwell. Greens were in great condition despite all the rain. Rest of the course was obviously soft meaning cart path only.
My group of 4 from Mid Carolina Country Club went to play The Walker Course at Clemson yesterday. It was a two hour drive and while the course is very nice we had issues. We were rained out after 7 holes. One of my group went to get us a rain check. We were given a rain check for 9 holes. This for my group was a pricey round. I did not find out about the 9 hole rain check until we were eating on my return trip. I called today to request an 18 hole replay. They took my name and number and told me the pro would call me. Later today someone from their golf shop called and said the pro said their “rule” was that If you had played 5 holes or more you would not get a rain check for the front nine. I explained about our lengthy trip to play their course but they didn’t care. They said we could come back and pay green fees plus a cart fee for the 9 holes we didn’t complete if we wanted to play 18. I am an experienced golfer who many years ago was an assistant pro at Oakmont and have never been treated by any course in my 71 years like this course. They appear to not be reasonable in light of our circumstances.
Loved this course
Loved the course it was so much fun and well kept. Cart path only due to recent weather conditions. Back nine around lake is gorgeous. Can't wait to come back again.
AWESOME course in GREAT condition - Round was veeeeerrrrrry slow
I love playing the Walker Course. The condition of the course was AMAZING. It was one of the best kept, best manicured courses I have played in a couple years. The greens and tees were in excellent shape. The fairways were amazing and lush. The bunkers were in excellent condition. The greens rolled true and with o.k. pace (a little on the slow side) but were in excellent condition with VERY FEW un-repaired ball marks. Every staff member I met was very friendly and wanted to ensure we had a enjoyable time.
Lots of holes have forced carries to reach the fairway but all were fair.
The back nine is very pretty with several holes along the lake and beautiful views
The WORST part of the round was the back nine because it was so slow and took way to long. After the front nine, there was a group of four who jumped in front of us at the turn and they were soooooo slow. I did not see a ranger all day long. The back nine alone took 2:50 to play and the slow foursome in front of us never once considered letting us play through and there were two empty holes in front of them. I great day on a beautiful course was ruined bay a slow as molasses group of four who took way to long looking for balls on every hole and in every water hazard. I Marshall would have been great to get them to speed up, but there was not a Marshall on the course at all.
Course is always in great shape
Had some friends up from Columbia SC, and they absolutely loved it.. Great Course!
