I wanted to get back out before they began their maintenance on 2/27/17. Plus, my groupon expired on 3/9/17. The course is in wonderful condition! Fairways green and lush, greens were quick, but not unfair, very receptive as well. Both bunkers I found were nicely groomed and had plenty of sand. No issues with the rough or tee boxes. All that said, I have only myself to blame for posting one of the worst scores I've shot in probably a decade. Simply put - I sucked today !
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Pace of play was good, under 3 hours. (Second group out) Again, everything was great - except me. BUT, if you can walk off the course and still say you enjoyed yourself, despite how you played, that speaks volumes!

1/31 $25 birthday round on an ideal sc winter day--worked in early by starter for 4 hr POP with some waiting but with the setting and the weather we didnt care--was able to take some extra putts and chips as the 4some following was no where to be seen.
Setting is great--holes are separated--some seem to be 1/4 mile apart as you wind thru the canyons and hills. Generally ample landing areas with at least one fairway side offering some safety-- but some forced carries. Fairway conditions quite good with very few wet areas--overall tightly mowed but with good cushion and acceptable roll out. Closely mowed approaches to green which looked to be great for chips but required a precise strike as any shot hit even a little fat would really grab the club or on flops would give too much bounce in to the ball. Rough some what thin and short along most fairways--a little longer and thicker near the greens.
Tees level with good cover. Bunkers well maintained with consistently good quality sand.
The greens are large with quadrants that accentuate the contours providing the opportunity for a range of pin placements that could increase the degree of difficulty by a factor of 10. Speed was a little below medium fast--putts rolled fairly smoothly--but there were many un-repaired or poorly repaired ball marks.
Friendly helpful golfer oriented staff. This is a higher end course that is probably worth the 50-75 $ deals that can be found--but is an absolute must for your birthday play--thanks Crossings and GK for the posting.
