Great Stop on the Way to Myrtle Beach

This is a great course to play on the way to Myrtle Beach. It's less than 2 miles off I-20 East going into Florence. We always try to play on our way by.
The staff was very friendly and made sure we got off easily. We were paired with another twosome.
Greens were in decent shape and putted well. Conditions had been dry for a week before we played but no problems. A couple of greens had dry spots (at the crowns or elevated sides) but holes were located away from these spots.

A new nine and and old one for me

I used to live in Florence and played the original 18 often. They were just in the planning stages for the woodlands 9 when I moved away and was never able to play it. All I can say is, what a shame that I had to wait this long to play the woodlands. Meandering through the woods this course layout is really fantastic. The best part of the layout is that they have several teeing options to make it fair for average golfers and really tough for low handicappers. With water features and some tight fairways this 9 is a true test of golf. Then there is the second none, one of the originals that I have played often in the past. A fun layout with direction changes everywhere to make you use every club in your bag.

Amazing place in the middle of nowhere!

We were traveling from Myrtle Beach to Augusta and decided to try Traces. What an amazing place! The staff was more than welcoming, the course fair and fun. Fairways are ample, but not huge, and there’s water in play on a couple holes. The greens were quick but not penalizing, and rolled perfectly true.
We had a sunny day, a virtually empty course, and one of the most fun rounds we’ve had in a while. It is a highly underrated course, and one you should try if you’re ever making the trek through rural South Carolina.

Course is in Excellent shape

The course has 27 holes. I played 18. It is a fairly basic layout. White tees are very playable and back tees would provide a decent challenge.

But hats off to the superintendant.

The course is in very very good shape. The greens were perfect. Good approach shots would stop quickly and they were smooth and true.

Mint condition greens

a short overall distance course with several pro length par 4's in excess of 450 yards from the blue tees. this is a 27 hole course so there always seems to be a fast way around the course. 3 some finished in under 3:45.
