Winter golf

The new management is trying hard to renew life to this golf course. It is nice to see that the new management cares and are motivated to make this golf course a better place to golf.
The course conditions weren’t too bad for a round of winter golf.
I will come back and play I. Late spring early summer to see if there is a difference, but I am sure there will be quite a difference.
Good value for the amount spent.

Worst Golf Course in Spartanburg County by far

I learned how to play golf on this course about a year ago, at first in the winter time the course seemed fine and was cheap. However it continues to get worse. The management is apathetic to your experience, and the course is in a comically bad state. Greens are full of weeds, fairways are littered with crab grass and dead spots. Tee boxes are in absurdly bad shape, and even the carts are in terrible shape. They also allow huge groups of 5 or more that absolutely kill pace of play. There are more shirtless alcoholics out there than people in golf attire. I come back every few months just to remind myself why I stopped coming here and I always regret it. Don’t waste your time or money on this place.

Great course

Still my favorite course in the upstate. Work is being done to make it a better play. Only gripe is I wish it would keep the name Heddles Hideaway.

Disappointed

My wife (my favorite golfing partner) were extremely disappointed with the overall conditions of Heddles (soon to be Palmetto Pines) Started with the first cart we had had no emergency brakes . . . fortunately discovered before we teed off on the first hole. Only to discover that the fairways were in terrible condition and the greens not much better. For a course located in South Carolina, I am surprised it is still open . . . It is under new owners and I will give a year before playing it again. Potentially it is a good course but Needs lots of tlc and removal of dried trees as they are a fire hazard. . might play again next year but no sooner.

Not worth the price

Kinda got the vibe this place used to be great back in the day but may be struggling now. No fairways were cut, greens were a little mossy almost, and for $40 I could have gone a lot other places. Friendly staff, and infrustructure looks like it is great location, etc. but I would drop price to $30 maybe.

Where’s the Fairway?

You could not tell the difference between the fairway and the rough. The greens were super bumpy and full of weeds. The tea boxes barely had any grass on them. The course layout is actually pretty cool if it was actually maintained.

Fair Course

The fairways on some holes looked more like the rough due to the grass not being cut and the greens were not smooth causing the ball to bounce a lot.

It got worse.

So first things first, I’ve been playing at this course for 14 years. When it was actually called Heddles Hideaway. Now it’s “Palmetto Hills.” This course used to be a beautiful course, with rolling hills, tough spots, and plenty of fun. Since the name change, the greens are unkempt, causing every putt to bounce, the fairways are iffy at best, and there is no sign that ownership is really trying to make this course better. They’ve been removing some problem trees which is the only positive. Except, they were burning the dead and removed trees right off a tee box! I had smoke in my eyes teeing off.

This course used to be good. I’m hoping the new ownership improves this course, but as of right now, won’t be going back for a while.
