Tega Cay Golf Club is surrounded by Lake Wylie, its name even means "beautiful peninsula" in Polynesian. Despite the secluded setting, the club is only minutes from Charlotte and Rock Hill. The club is distinct for being the area's only 27-hole facility. The holes are divided into three nines that can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Grande View Course is the longest of the three nines at 3,276 yards and it is also considered the most challenging. This nine is the most popular, the finishing hole was even voted the "favorite 18th hole in the Charlotte Area" by listeners of the local radio station. As its name implies, Grande View is characterized by its stunning hilly landscape. From the golf course's elevations, the views stretch across lush meadows and wooded hills.

Course Conditions Have Improved

I played Tega Cay about a month ago with many patchy spots, rough tee boxes, and burnt out greens. However, conditions have improved greatly. Some tee boxes are closed for renovation but most remaining tees are in better shape. Fairways were nice and green, and the greens were rolling true and fast. Definitely worth a trip to play here now that conditions have improved. Nice amenities too; it really has a private club feel with a great clubhouse.

This place is in rough shape

So, played this course 1st time with my buddy, who is a golf novice. First of all this place overall is in rough shape right now. They have had a lot of rain recently. There are numerous of places on this course that are distressed. Tee boxes that have little or no grass on them, that are still open with markers on them. The 18th green is a disaster area. Those are hopefully just temporary issues here. The real issue that I saw is that the front side is gimmicky, blind shots, trees that get in the way. The back side is a way better and fairer layout, but even it has a strange hole or two. There is a lot of up and down here and it looks like they saved the best land to build houses. I know that the second time you play here you will know better where to play your ball. But for me once was enough. The next time I am in Charlotte I will find somewhere else to play.

Fun Layout but Needs Rain Badly

The course is a lot of fun and pretty easy so long as you don't spray the ball off the tee. Back nine (Grande View) provides a more challenging layout with more water hazards. Most of the greens were in great shape and rolling true, but there were four or five really patchy greens. Additionally, the tee boxes and fairways were VERY dry. Not sure if it's just a lack of rain or a lack of watering but the course needs water badly. It has the potential to be much better than it was this day.

OVERALL: 6.1/10, with the potential to be 7.5 - 8/10 with better conditions.

Tega Cay Golf Club - Carolina Pines and Grandview

Played the Carolina Pines and Grandview nines of Tega Cay Golf Club today. Tega Cay is a public facility, but has very much a private club feel. The facilities are top notch, from the practice areas to the clubhouse to the turnhouse. The CP and GV nines make up the majority of the 18 hole routings, although there is another 9 holes, called the Cove that is sometimes used as an alternate 9, but can be played by itself.

The tees and fairways are bermuda grass and all were in fantastic shape. Bunkers were well maintained and full of soft, white sand. Greens were receptive and quick! Most of the greens are large, with the exception of the 10th, and have subtle breaks instead of large undulations. There is significant elevation change from tee to green on about half the holes. #'s 5, 8, 10, and 12 are the most prominent examples of this. When driving towards the 150 yard marker on the 8th hole, it looks like you are going over the side of a cliff! The course is not overly long, and narrow fairways and subtle doglegs make proper club selection important. Water only comes into play on three holes, all on the GV nine. All in all, Tega Cay is a great golf experience, and I will definitely be back.

Beat expectations

The last time I had played the cove was back in 2012 and I remember a course in poor condition. Well I was pleasantly surprised to play the cove and enjoy my entire round. Yes the fairways were a little brown but that is just what the grass does. But what made up for this was the fantastic condition of the greens. The were quick and looked amazing. Another great addition to this course is the fact that the layout is a little challenging. I believe I shot 4+ and I had to work for every shot. I have just one recommendation, do walk The Cove unless you are willing to walk up some steep cliffs. Overall and great course.

Great Course

If you're in the Fort Mill/Charlotte area Tega Cay's 18 hole course, featuring the Pines and the Grande View is a must play because of the exquisite hole design along with an extremely friendly staff. First, when you arrive at Tega Cay GC you will notice that there is a driving range (easily with 25+ stalls) and a putting green with multiple holes to practice on. But many people overlook the pitching area that lurks next to hole one of The Cove. It is a great area to not only practice your short game but to improve bunker and long ranged pitching. Second, they have the most friendly staff ever. For me, being a member, I interact with them multiple times a week, and I could not think of a better group to run a golf facility. They will guide you if you need help and they are always willing to give a tip or two. Third, how do the courses play. Well I have played the 18-hole course multiple times over the winter and it has played the same each time. The greens are a little slow, but that's expected, and the fairways are superb given the climate of the area. I can't speak for the Cove because I haven't play that course in years and they just opened it up again after introducing a new irrigation system. I will look to put up a review for that course after next weekend because I am looking to play the course twice by then.

Spectacular greens!

Played The Cove's front 9. It was a steal at only $16! The course was in decent shape, but I was very impressed by the consistency and quality of the condition of the greens. Lots of elevation and fun tee shots. I'll return to play the full course.

Course conditions

The course is well maintained and greens played great. GolfNow is the way to go for booking tee times. Played course numerous times. This day we were confined to cart path only due the the amount of rain in last few days. Slowed up play and took a little longer than normal, the pace of players kept moving and waiting time was nominal (twice for us). Three times we saw deer on the course and once had to run the deer of the fairway to hit. Filmed deer on phone. Just beautiful creatures.

Labor Day Golf

I like this course have played it several times and it's always in great condition.I played the usual 18 which is the Grande View /Carolina Pines so can't comment on Cove 9.The Greens are fast and in excellent shape.Labor day price was a little hefty but you can usually get a good deal on Golf Now,which we didn't do this time as booking last minute.i would always recommend this course for a group outing.

This course has great holes and challenging.

My only gripe was that there is three courses and the club house do not tell you which one you are scheduled on because they do not have a starter. I found out after nine holes on the Cove that I was suppose to have played on the other course. I played nine holes on the other course.

Needs more care for the fairways

I played the course they send you to when you only play 9 holes. The fairways had bare spots and the terrain wasn't consistent. The greens however were in good shape.

Nice Course

This was the second time I've played here, and enjoyed it again. I think it is a very nice course with a fair level of difficulty. The front nine does not contain any bunkers or water hazards, but features a good bit of elevation changes. The back nine is more challenging with a fair amount of water and sand traps. The staff has been very friendly and professional both times I have been there. Only negative I can think of is they do not have diagrams of the holes on the score card, only the layouts of the greens and hole position. Also, they paired my partner and I up with a single. He turned out to be very nice, but would have preferred to play just the two of us. The food is good and they have a nice selection of craft beer. I will definitely be back
