About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6890 yards
Slope 137
Rating 71.9

Situated between Greenville and Spartanburg, Willow Creek Golf Course is a favorite course amongst many area players. The course has a classic layout that starts out gently with a player-friendly front nine but then becomes much more challenging on the back nine. The layout is a seemingly mild 6,890 yards from the back tees but it can feel longer because of all the elevation changes you'll encounter. It's a golf course that will appeal to beginners but advanced players will also enjoy the many risk-reward opportunities that can be found throughout. Water hazards come into play on eight holes and there is a slew of strategically placed bunkers lurking along the greensides. The par-5 fifth hole is Willow Creek Golf Course's signature. This 516-yard hole tumbles across rolling hills with a stream that cuts right through the fairway.

Great course for all levels of player

This was a fun course to play even though we were paired with two strangers and did not get to play the entire course. The staff tried to be as accommodating as possible due to the fact that they had over sold the day and were backed up causing us to only get in 12 of the 18 holes we paid to play. They also made us aware that we were required to return the cart by 5pm. They stated this was just put into place that morning. I would have never accepted a 1:20 tee time if I had the information the staff knew. Very poor planning on their part and not a good impression to a new corporate hire looking for a local club to use for entertaining. Certainly will not consider a home in the property neighborhood now.

Great Value

What a great price for such a nice place. Course was busy but only waited twice in 9 holes. Beautiful #9 dog leg right. Greens rolled very true.

Nice enough layout and pace of play

I played a late-day round and the course was in a nice overall condition. Nothing overly exciting or memorable, but worth the money.

51/2 hour round

Do you like long days on the course and sitting in a cart, then this course is for you. Hole were backed up 5 deep throughout the round. Shame is the course itself is nice
