Tight course but in good condition

This course is very tight with trees on both sides of the fairways, particularly on the back 9. However, it is a nice course which is in pretty good condition. The greens were too fuzzy this time, but I suspect that they mow them closer on the weekends.

" the Flash from the Past "

." A little disappointing to be honest " ... this Golf course was such a treat to play in the 1980's -- 1990's -- 2000's , when we were members of the Club. On a Positive note .... Just needs a little TLC and investment $$$$$ to return it to the Pride of Past !!! The Staff was very Professional and Personal ... " Thanks for the opportunity to visit " Steve

Sweetwater CC is "sweet"

Played with a relative who takes group golf trips regularly. Thought Sweetwater was better than any course he had ever playe in Fla. And better than most in the Carolinas. Thought it was beautiful, and gee a were excellent. Much better than courses he had paid 4-5 times as much to play, although we lucked in to the lowest price I had ever seen on this course. Best golf deal either of us ever had. No waiting on Fri. Afternoon.

Well playable track in rather moderate condition

This is a good place to go, but nothing special at all. The course has some narrow holes that require straight shots. Fairways and bunkers are OK. T-boxes need some attention. Greens are mostly OK, but not really special. It is just a “small” place, OK for a pleasant round but nothing much to it.

An aging gem

Reasonably well maintained course conditions. Generous fairways, with well guarded greens by sand and water. Greens were very slow, with subtle undulations. A very good test of golf, but fair. We very much enjoyed our day. Clearly being run on a shoe string, although conditions still allow for a satisfying round.

Always a challenge

Some very tight holes demand straight tee shots and some elevation change make this a very good layout to test your game. Greens were a bit slower than normal but still very acceptable. all skill levels should enjoy this course.
