Had played the course earlier this year and hoped it would be in better condition. It is a beautiful layout but playing condition aren't for golfers. Rough was extremely punishing. Bermuda was deep and we lost 2 balls on rough just off fairways. Sand traps were in terrible condition. Looked like they hadn't had any maintenance in weeks. They were also very inconsistent. Some had little sand and others had way too much fluffy sand. Ah, then there were the greens. Had hoped for better. There were very slow. Hard to read. Two putts on same line broke in different directions. No ball roll out - acted like ball had brakes.
Played the course on 10/21. Course was in perfect condition. Always enjoy playing here
The course was in good condition minus leaves and debris being on a lot of greens. Also, was a little annoyed in the club house as we were waiting in line to check in and someone came in and jumped in front of us and the guy at the register didn't seem to care. Overall the course is beautiful.
Beautiful Course - Play if you get the chance.
It was a hot June day (in the 90s) -- apparently "maintenance" was done before we teed off so there was no group in front of us and we never had anyone behind us. Therefore pace of play was awesome.
The Walker course is beautiful and it was in excellent condition - no bare spots anywhere on the course. Also, it was well marked so you never were confused as to where the next tee was located. There were rest rooms on the course.
The tips from the pro shop attendant were spot on:
(1) There is less break on the greens than you see
(2) On many holes, missing right is better. This is especially good advice on Hole #1, where the creek runs along the left side (but you can see it from the tees).
My Tip: The greens are very tricky because they are fast (at least the day we played good approach shots rolled past the hole and putts you felt you barely hit, rolled on and on.) And there may be less break as the putt heads to the hole but on the edge of the holes, some seemed to have a break or tilt that no one in our group could read and putts rolled the edge (maybe it was just were some of the holes were cut that day).
The signature hole (17) did not disappoint -- fun to play, birdie chance. And, a pretty view of the lake. But I will say that there are many beautiful holes on the course.
This was the first time playing the course. After playing you really want to come back (with your new course knowledge) to see how low you can go.
Only really one negative about the overall experience: For women, the Pro Shop clothing options were extremely limited. Very disappointing. For example, the men's clothing purchase options included a pair of shorts with tiger paws all over them. Why not have something like that for women in a skort? You are missing the opportunity to sell to women golfers.
Overall, one of the best courses I have played in South Carolina. Definitely play if you get the chance.
Course was in good shape except for the greens. Don’t know who would ever put down a zoysia on a putting surface. Slow and hard to read. Greens broke every which way. No two putts on the same line broke the same way.
Pace of play was slow. Players spent too much time looking for balls in deep rough.
No worth the money. Like I said pretty but not a great course. Don’t know where the #1 ranking came from. Far better College golf courses.
Awesome golf course, my only complaint is that we paid $42 each on Golfnow and then we’re charged again at the course! Great course, but $90 for a round is a bit steep for Seneca, SC.
Highly recommend The Walker course. Great condition. Challenging greens. Nice people. Convenient to get there. It's a long walk so we rode.
