Golf Advisor: Top Courses in South Carolina
Great layout but still dormant
Was very wet after the huge rainfall day before. Greens rolled true and quick. Would like to see in a few weeks.
Played day before attending Masters, so had to pay higher price for playing a local course, which I understand but fee was a bit higher than the experience warranted. Paid $175 per head, which did include lunch. Course in Ok shape, not spectacular. We often forget there is a lot of dormant grass this time of year, which to Northerners looks like dead grass. Not a lot of memorable holes. Staff was accommodating insofar as they let us go off earlier than planned so we could get ahead of some groups getting ready to tee off. So we did play fairly quickly. Not a negative experience, and the practice area was a solid one, but I just felt a bit taken advantage of with the price when all was said and done.
Not a lot of memorable holes?
How about 6 with the two tiered green, or 9 a short par 5 with a killer green, or 12, 15, 16 and 17, let alone the killer 18th
I agree, Masters week is ridiculous,, We stayed there and played 5 days for $600
We stay at the cottages, and have played here for many years. The course is always in the best condition, for winter, than any course in the area except the obvious one. They overseed the tees, greens and fairways so the playing surfaces are exceptional, and the greens are as fast as any around.
The course is mostly flat with many elevated greens. The layout winds around a central lake, with plenty of gators, but even away from the lake water and wetlands lurk. The property was an old rail yard, and tracks and trestles dot the area.
The greens are some of the toughest to putt, hard to read, large fast with many undulations, avoid 3 putts and you are having a good day.
The cottages are a great way to stay and play, and the staff will set up tee times at other area courses and include in your package.
Best in CSRA
The River Club never disappoints. This course is in excellent condition year round. Staff were very helpful and make your visit easy, on top of that course is great value for money. Overall a great experience each time I visit.
will play again
I take a semi annual vacation to the area to play with a seniors group nearby and on the off day I played this course. The fairways were scalped for over seeding and some spots were still brown on the back 9. the front was very nice. Am planning to go back next Feb and will play on the off day.
Fun and challenging course in great condition
Great golf course in very good condition (the front nine fairways were shaved down in preparation for over-seeding and getting ready for the winter). I have played the course before and the course is always in great condition.
- The bermuda grass greens are in fantastic condition. They are smooth, fast, roll true and have very few ball marks.There are lots of undulations and subtle slopes on the greens which make them challenging.
- The rough is thick and lush and challenging to escape due to the thickness great condition of the rough
- You will not regret playing The River golf course. It is a great track in great condition.
Great shape for Masters week
Course is in excellent condition. Fully green, excellent fairways and greens. Friendly staff and nice pace of play. Played a 4 hour 10 min round on Saturday morning with a packed course.
I have lived in the area for two years. This course is the best maintained; of all the courses I have played. Greens were faster than I remembered; from the first time I played here. Staff was very courteous and accommodating. No problems.
Me and my son played here Saturday and the course was amazing. From tee to green the conditions were great, the greens were absolutely perfect and fast The carts have GPS which is a big help. And it only took us 3:15.to play 18 holes.we will definitely be going back as soon as possible.
Excellent course. Rude staff.
Wonderful golf course in immaculate condition. Staff needs customer service training. Gentleman at counter in the clubhouse was downright belligerent. Actually tracked us down on the course in the midst of our round to scold one of us for making a mistake in booking a tee time online. Woman at the snack bar appeared to really hate her job......no smiles, no "thank you" from anyone. If I'm dropping that kind of money to play a game I want it to be fun...at least pleasant. I won't go out of my way to play there again any time soon.
So the counter guy comments on my review stating that he is "as nice as he can be" to everyone......and that my statement is false? I think you just proved it to be true! Oh, and I forgot to mention the snarky remark made upon our arrival (we arrived 10 mins ahead of our scheduled tee time, having driven through a detour and a crowded fall festival in North Augusta to get to the course); "you have a flat tire or something?" Furthermore, as previously stated, I didn't make the tee time...another of the guys in our group did. You could have waited until we made the turn or finished our round to chastise us for the error. And when you did approach us, it was with a poor attitude. "i'm just telling you"------basically scolding us for the a mistake. ?maybe you are better suited for picking the range.
Sir, I kindly let you know that you did make a mistake booking your tee time. I did this as a service so you did not make the same mistake in booking again. I am always as nice as I can be to all players so your comment is false. Thanks
