About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 7103
Slope 141
Rating 74.3
Type Public
Edgewater Golf Club has a peaceful setting tucked away in Lancaster. The course feels completely secluded with a layout that tumbles across rolling hills covered with a blanket of matures trees. The terrain is as scenic as it is challenging, providing the layout with dramatic elevation changes and plenty of water. In addition to the natural hazards, there are numerous strategically placed bunkers lurking along the greensides. An abundance of wildlife also calls the golf course home, so don't be surprised if you see deer or turkeys roaming the course. One of Edgewater Golf Club's most memorable holes is the par-4 seventh. This tricky hole is a downhill dogleg left that forces you to drive right-center of the fairway, followed by a tough approach to a green that sits on the bank above Fishing Lake Creek.

Fun course and great shape

This is 2nd time to play here. Takes a bit of time to get there but really a lot of fun. Many elevated tee shots and picture-esk greens. The course is nestled in the pine trees and not surrounded by homes. You'll have a great time.

Great day!

The course is in great shape with just a few rough spots outside the fairways. The rough is penalizing but not unfair. The greens roll true though not too fast. Pace of play was excellent except for a twosome in separate carts who thought they had the right to play through without being permitted.

Sprinklers!!!!

This is a pretty good course. However two separate times the staff has turned the sprinklers on during our round. Soaking the greens with us standing right there in sight. I have never played anywhere where this has happened twice with a full course of players 4 o clock in the afternoon. The pro shop could've cared less and simply stated would you like the maintenance phone number. I live in this community and highly doubt ill be back there to play anymore after the cold shoulder.

Great Course

1st time playing and will definately be back. The staff was very friendly and before I began one of the gentleman gave me pointers on a few holes where to avoid that was not visible on the tee box. Overall worth the 30 min drive to get there. Very pleased with the course.

C'mon Man!

Driving around as a single, cause the threesome I was paired with didn't want any company, I saw: jammed Jammed JAMMED but then 6 empty holes in a row?

A ranger is needed to tell slow groups to let faster players play through!

Hidden Gem

This course is immaculate. Great layout that is very challenging. Greens were perfect, plush fairways and tee boxes were excellent. We played on Sunday morning. Pace was a little slow for a light crowd on a Sunday morning. A ranger would have helped as one foursome slowed the whole course up. We will be back.

Too good for my game

Played this course when it was cold and dormant, couldn't wait to come back in warmer weather. The course is phenomenal. My game on the other hand was off. Greens are in great shape when other courses in the area are "transitional". Fairways are pristine.

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

THE GOOD: Where as most courses charge stupid prices, Edgewater's golf carts ALWAYS have a FREE yardage book inside - I've seen them as high as $6 at other places!

THE BAD: Edgewater's golf carts are the ONLY ones I know of if ALL of the Carolina's that don't have sand bottles on them - how am I supposed to fill in my fairway divots?

THE UGLY: My golf game this day!

Beautiful and demanding

Fairways are always a bit thin it seems at the course. We play the ball up through the green if the lie is a bit too thin so no big issue here as there's plenty of grass a few inches away if you land in a thin spot. Greens are well manicured sans a few little repair spots. Par 3's here play decently long so long iron game is a must have. Overall just a great course that plays tough but fair. I always enjoy my rounds here. Staff are always pleasant. Pace of play was excellent as we were a 2some behind a 4 some and still got around in 4 hours.
