11/23 POP 420 on a pleasant SC morning. Fairways are generally firm, pale green good cover with some cushion but also sometimes on the harder side requiring goood ball first contact to avoid the bounce and scull. Looked to have a few less unfilled divots but still an area that needs attention. Rough has been over seeded so is a dark green and can be juicy especially closer to the greens and on slopes and really tricky when on the back of a green to a down hill pin. Tees are generally ok but with the widely spaced markers players still seem to tee up from mostly one general area causing more wear. Bunkers well groomed with deep sand and of course the residual foot prints.
Greens are soft and receptive medium/medium fast speeds and show considerable ball mark damage many unrepaired and many slow to heal. Course does a good job of moving pins within the 6 zones to mitigate the on going wear but due to the fragile nature of these greens they are not currently as smooth as I have seen them in the past.» Close

11/18 will second the excellent reviews submitted by abbacat and Sparky14. Fairways in good autumn shape with good lies overall even with the occasional thin areas. rough was rather closely mowed and thick so mostly the ball would sit up. Bunkers had nicely compacted sand and looked to have been groomed earlier this day. Tees did have some thin areas.
Greens are the highlight with healthy cover generally in good condition, medium fast and mostly smooth. Many greens have multi levels and contours so some pin placements were quite challenging. Interesting scenic layout with a very remote feel even with houses in view.» Close

11/16 using GK voucher $33 playing with my son Grant on a pleasant but warmish morning POP about 415 with waiting on most holes--5some out in front of 4 some and with the work on the tees looked like the 5some was in over their depth(most white tees were set back with the blues). We had decided to play the golds with the possibility of playing the whites if any of those tees were open but were paired with 2 really enjoyable guys, Dave and Hal who were playing the gold so we just stayed with them--interesting to have short irons or wedges into the greens--way less stress but felt a little like cheating.
Fairways have good cover even with being firm for helpful roll. Tees tended to be wet and worn but level. Played out of 1 fairway bunker which was ok and by observation others seemed to have adequate sand. No rough to speak of.
Greens are mostly healed holding shots and rolling medium fast. Large greens with undulations so had several putts up and over and down ton the hole.
Friendly staff easy check in and a starter on top of his game. No range just a cage for irons only. Putting green with bumpers. No sand on carts and no GPS. Had a good time.» Close

11/9 guru play with Gary Steve and Tim an enjoyable and fun group in a pleasant setting. 1st time on the Champions which I found to be more interesting with more water in play and visually more stimulating. Fairways have good cover and good roll sometimes into harms way. CPO but in my opinion not really necessary as there was no evidence of standing water and due to the slopes drainage was quite good. Rough cut short with the ball tending to sit up. tees level with ok coverage. Bunkers need help as they were often thin over hard pan making for many improbable outs.
Greens were soft and receptive fairly quick with more breaks than were apparent and for me difficult to judge. Greens being soft and with the type of grass are fragile with many ball marks in evidence so there could be some pockmarks to navigate.

11/4 1245 tee time using teeoff deal time with discount $22 POP just under 4. Current conditions are marginal. There is so much construction/re-design going on that many areas have a devastated look. There has been a lot of brush and tree removal, some of which helps keep the ball in play but some like along 1, 6, 7, 8 has removed the growth to the point that it looks quite rugged and reveals a muddy stream as well as showing the adjoining fairways. Some of the work was done to remove non native species but it really looks stark for now.
Fairways are in late summer condition, some are quite good while others have thin areas. Tees generally poor and bunkers have been groomed but are covid stressed. Rough cut down for now.
Greens are slowly recovering but still about n2 weeks away from being good.
Staff friendly and welcoming as usual.» Close
