Slope N/A
Rating N/A

Formerly known as the University Club, Cobblestone Park Golf Course may have changed names but it still offers one of the best courses in the Midlands. There are a total of 27 holes, which are divided into three distinct nines. The holes stretch across more than 240 acres of rolling hills. The Black nine is the longest of the three and naturally the most challenging as well. A variety of elevation changes come into play, ranging from subtle to dramatic. The golf course even features some of the highest points in Richland County, providing scenic views throughout your round. There are strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout and mature oaks and pines lining the fairways but the challenges are balanced by wide landing areas that are nice and inviting.

Great experience

Great course layout & friendly vibe & beautiful environment! Being mid February, the dormant areas were fairly matted down, but the greens were fantastic! Would love to play during summer conditions for an even better experience.

Very nice course! Layout is awesome. Greens were in great shape but will be even better in a few more weeks once they fill in a little more from being punched.

Good Course

Course was in very well kept shape, greens have already been aeriated for the summer so that is nice a little bumpy from players not fixing their divots but in good shape. Only thing i wasn't pleased with was the bunker conditions they were atrocious. Played in the middle of the day so it was smoking hot but there was no one out there.

Pack your patience, otherwise it's an amazing course

Let me preface this by saying that I have played Cobblestone Park at least 30 different times over the last 15 years. I have played there and literally been the only person on the course aside from the staff. I've played there when there's groups of 6 people ahead and behind me. I've seen it all.

I personally think it's the best conditioned and best designed layout in Columbia. It is worth the extra to pay for the conditions that the course can be played under. Out of 18 greens (Garnet/Black) - only one had a dead patch and the rest were phenomenal. They had been recently punched, so they were a little more bumpy than I am used to.

Packing your patience as a single player is important because sometimes you'll get sandwhiched between a group of 6, or a two some like I was. I hadn't played in a year and was getting back used to playing so I didn't want to slow either group down by joining them.

My only recommendation would be if there are going to be bigger groups that they consider sending groups off of the Black nine and the Garnet nine at the same time. The Gold nine was not open which is my preferred nine there. I WISH they had 36 holes.
