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.

My husband wanted to take me out to try golf. We decided to do it today, Friday at 1:20. Our first tee off was a little long because it was my first time and we were a group of four (two females and two males). At the first hole we were instructed to hurry up so we moved on to the next hole and played faster. Around hole seven another guy who worked at the facility told us to hurry up again, we were at the green and the group behind us had just gotten to the tee box. We had also allowed three groups to play through so we wouldn't hold players up. Around hole eleven another employee comes by and tells us to hurry up that we are backing up people. When we started the hole no one was behind us, once again we are at the green and the other group just got to the tee. We continue at our regular speed and the group behind us never again caught up to us. We get off the course and I go to the clubhouse to speak to a manager. I was instructed that the pro just left and that this guy I was speaking with was next in command. I tell him my complaint about the rudeness and harassment felt by the staff. He apologized but made accuses. He also went as far as telling us that we should book at a not so busy time (however one of his excuses was they were busier than normal). He didn't seem to care at all. I told him I was going to leave a negative comment since he didn't seem to care. He half-heartedly asked me not to because it hurts them but that I really should come back at a less busy time. For a first golf experience that was horrible. My husband was going frequently to this course but he said he will find someplace else. It is a nice course however plan on being harassed because the facility is experiencing higher than normal traffic.

Always enjoy playing Edgewater. Wide open fairways. Interesting layout and good variety. Longer par 3s play well with some challenge. Longer par 4s along with some shorter ones. Always see good but of wildlife as well. Big Tom turkey sitting in the middle of the fairway first hole when we went to tee off.

Edgewater Golf Club is a gorgeous, relaxing, challenging yet forgiving course to play. You can see Fishing Creek Lake from several of the holes. Just beautiful! Service is top notch, friendly and professional. Friends and I had a fantastic day. Truly better than I expected for the low price! I will come back again for sure.

Winter golf conditions still existed this day and the course had not been maintained in quite some time. The design and layout is in my top 5 in North Carolina since moving here from Arizona! Bunkers are being repaired and new sand is beginning to appear in bunkers..... because of the distance and remoteness of this golf course call first and ask for a honest description of the playing conditions..... views are great and unobstructed as no homes have been built on the golf course ... Greens are bent grass but were not cut due to weather!..... again....a great design but verify the conditions before you make the trek ....

Great layout and a very enjoyable course to play. It is currently in understandably rough shape due to the weather, and the pace of play was a bit slow (we are used to it being wide-open and fast), but what would you expect on the first sunny warm Sunday of the year? Cannot recommend this course more - especially when it bounces back after the harsh winter months.
