Played here a week ago with my Son , that is moving to this area . Teed off at 8:40, paired up with a couple from this area. Had a great morning with these folks, they are members here. Fairways and greens were in great condition, greens rolled try and fast . Several holes on Lake Hartwell had great views. Everyone we met or felt with on the course and in the pro shop were very helpful and friendly. I am sure we will be playing here again in the future.

Really fun golf course. Very fair and wide open with great conditions. A few holes near lake are spectacular. Super friendly staff, small pro shop but great merchandise.

Golf course in great shape and zoysia greens were fun to putt. Our guys group had a great time. This is a must play if you are ever in Clemson.

Clemson spends a lot of money keeping this average course above average ... lot's of blind shots and elevation changes, you'll do best with a Skycaddie... The Walker course would see more business if they lowered their rates to overcome the long drive.

We only played nine holes but it was along the Lake which was beautiful. Glad the starter sent everyone off the back nine.

You don't have to be a student to play here but it gets a little pricey if you aren't. Extremely well kept and definitely worth the money though. There are 5 tee boxes so plenty of options for everyone. The Orange tees (the tees go Orange, Purple, White since those are Clemson's colors) are the tips and they make for a VERY long golf course but the white tees are very reasonable for the average golfer and the gold (senior) and red (women's) tees take all the long carries out of the golf course if you're worried about having to fly the ball long distances. Lots of options and it's a fairly forgiving golf course with some huge fariways and greens but that doesn't make this golf course easy. Lots of well placed bunkers and water with plenty of fun holes mixed together with the traditional ones. The best holes are the last 6, they are along the lake and you get some great views and some tough carries. Best time to play 17 and 18 is right about at sundown, great sunsets over the lake. Don't take it to seriously on this golf course unless you're playing during the week before students get out of class (~230 usually) because on weekends the one downside of this golf course is that it's the only golf course in Clemson and it gets SLOW. Still fun to play though, just avoid peak hours.

Side note for anyone who hasn't played here before, the flags are the same as the tees orange is back purple is middle and white is front. Hope you read this before you play or you WILL BE confused!! Also, orange and white stakes in the fairway are 150 and purple and white is 250, the orange and purple stake on #9 is the only 200 yard stake on the golf course (Land your tee-shot to the left of it at the top of the hill or you will have a VERY long shot into a tough, crowned, green, if you miss your drive left of the top of the hill you're probably in the creek).

I was invited by a good friend of mine, and Clemson Alumni, to join him for a round of golf here at the Walker Course. I have to say that it was a very nice facility and course is very well kept. I think the layout was awesome and challanging. Greens in great shape as you dont see to many Bermuda greens that well taken care of. Cant wait for an invite back.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course and the challenges presented. Greens are in great shape, the views are great and facilities make a trip here worthwhile.

I love to play this course as often as possible. It's the best maintained course in this area and had won numerous awards for collegiate play. It is a little more expensive than other courses in the area, but the condition of the course along with the views (several holes on the back 9 are lake-front) make it worth it. If you like a nicer, more challenging course with amazing scenery than this is the course you want to be on.

This was a golf course me and my friends waited a very long time to play. And after leaving today, we will never be back. Bottom line.
While the course is fairly nice, it is way over priced and the staff there is very rude. Our T time was at 8:40, and we were checking in at the office at 8:41 am. And he made sure he let us know we should had already been on the first whole. After 17 years of playing, this was the first time I had ever had someone hold us to the exact minute.
After driving to the 1st hole, the golf attendant did the same thing.."Yall are late!" he let us know.
Then wanted us to skip the first few holes and play in with another person that was already playing. Did we? Why no, wasn't going to!
We had rain checks from trying to play this course a few years earlier, and was expecting everything to be fine. But because we were playing earlier in the day than our RCs selected. We were charged $20 MORE bucks-which really pissed us off since I had no cash.
I would say if you have never played here before,give it a try once. The course is fairly nice. But for us, we'll never be back. Too many other descent ones in the area to be treated the way you are here at Walker. Good luck and Good day to you and hopefully you're treated a lot better.
