Chanticleer is the standard in Upstate, SC
This is a private course I have had the privilege of playing many times. It is one of Robert Trent Jones best. It plays longer than it looks and is protected by rock lined creeks that weave in and out of fairways and protect many greens. Playing with a member who knows the course would be a huge advantage for anyone visiting for the first time. If you get the opportunity to play Chanticleer, don’t pass it up!
Outstanding and challenging
Fairway grass was still dormant in February, but greens were fast and smooth. Not overly long, but as much golf as you'd ever want. Landing areas are pretty generous but miss hit an approach and you should expect to surrender a few strokes. The stream that runs through the property is used extensively and there is water on most holes. It's amazing how often that stream comes into play! This is a shot makers course. If you are a player, this place is a treat. Duffers will struggle here (*note slope and course rating). Though not as old, if you've ever wanted to play on a course from the golden age, like a pasatiempo or bethpage, this has that vibe. Price might seem steep, but this is a top 100 course and in a bigger market would be a lot more.
