Do NOT play this course in the afternoon. I tried to play this course the afternoon of April 23. I started at approximately 2:45. All went well until I finished the first nine holes. As I approached the tee box for the second nine hole, I was stunned and appalled by what I saw.
I had followed two twosomes around the first nine holes. Suddenly, the two groups had exploded to four foursomes waiting on the tee box, another one on the fairway, and a third on the green. I quickly grasped what this meant -- I was facing 3+ hours of miserable waiting before the sun would end my incomplete round.
I went to the starter and asked what had happened. She politely explained: "Oh, we have leagues in the afternoon and you will just have to wait."
Say what? I had paid my money, played my first nine, and now I was being moved to the back of the bus. Rather than fight the impossible, I made a U-turn to the parking lot and left. Of course, no one at the course apologized, offered me a refund or a rain check for 9 holes, or even seemed to care.
Moral of the story: do NOT play here if there is a possibility that you will be starting your second nine holes between 4:15 and 5:30.
Now for comments on the course. This is a subpar Hurzdan design. I have played multiple courses, which he has designed. I generally like what he does with golf courses. However, this is a mediocre design. I suspect that he was limited financially with what he was permitted to do.
The condition of the course was average at best and the frequent detention ponds had an aroma that made me long for inhaling an outhouse aroma instead.
To add insult to injury, there was no ranger on the course, drinking water at any hole, or beverage cart.
If you want to play golf in this area, the much better choice -- which is very close -- is Coosaw Creek, which Arthur Hills designed.
