Course plays great. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the State Park, no houses, beautiful views of the lake with the course in really fine shape. Some of The bunkers are washed out due to the heavy rain the day before but greens are in great shape fairways are good as Well. Always enjoy their course every time we play it .

Hidden Gem

Fantastic layout. NO houses. Just a beautiful layout. Reminds me of a very nice Pinehurst Sandhills type of layout. LOVE this course. Bunkers are really only drawback. Just stay out of them!

Always a good choice!

Played the Cheraw State Park GC again ...... always a good choice and a good value. Fairways were fantastic, greens just coming out of aeration, but nice. Bunkers need a little TLC. Stayed at the cabins which makes it SO convenient.

Great Layout and a Quick Round

If you’re looking to drive a bit from Charlotte, this is a fun forest/lake type course. Cheraw State Park was in excellent shape. The greens had recently been punched but were filling in nicely. That and a few wet traps were the only issues the course had. Otherwise it’s in fantastic shape. Played in a twosome in about 3 hrs and 20 minutes. Staff is friendly and during the week was a great time to go down.

Great course except sand traps

This course was almost excellent. Layout was good. Fairways, greens, and collars around greens were incomparable.. Tees were a little sparse but still very good. The sand traps were about the worse that I had ever seen. There was no sand in any trap but only compacted gray/black dirt with thousands of rocks in every trap. There was not one square-foot without rocks in any trap. . Many had water puddles about 20 feet in diameter. .

Best and favorite course so far in 2021

I wish it wasn't so far from Charlotte or we would play here more often! Perfect greens, a player friendly course with wide fairways and no rough. Water on a few holes on the back but more for appearance than in play. Played on a Sunday so was a little slow but that's to be expected. Fairways just now greening up and getting grass. Very Pinehurst-type feel at state park prices. All the positive reviews here are spot-on. It's a gem.

Pinehurst feel

Stare Park is a great layout with super smooth greens. If you don’t hole it then it’s your own fault.
Tall pines and great greens makes you feel like you are playing a Pinehurst course

Gem on way to Myrtle

Great course. Only issue was pace of play as there was a group of 28 guys in front of us on their annual Ryder cup weekend. Almost 5 hours. Would still play there again.

Greens

Greens are usually excellent, but they were I little rough this time. I assume they are in transition.

Cheraw State Park - course review

Excellent layout with great Bermuda greens. Fairways/roughs extrermely wet - grass has not started growing yet. Cart paths are in bad condition. No ranger to monitor play. Hard to walk too much distance between greens and next tees.
