Superb Conditions

I love the golf course and conditions was great. The pro shop staff is not to welcoming for someone who never played the course. The starter was very polite and approachable. I can’t let pro shop staff deter my foursome from playing a hidden gem venue. Excellent setup and I highly recommend the country club.

Rock hard greens

Greens were rock hard. Like concrete. Hit a flop shot on 12 that rolled out 20 feet. On 10 hit a lob wedge from 60 yards. Hit it just right and it landed a foot from the cup only to roll out 30 feet past. Greens were unmowed from the previous day and were not changed from the day before There was also a walker in front of us playing the tips when he should’ve been on the whites or senior tees. He was blaring loud music from his pull cart like Rodney Dangerfield. Not sure when I’ll be back.

Starter

A starter should be working when busy. Letting singles go alone, then walkers, then 4somes...A club like this one should rarely have pace of play issues...Bad management!

Fast greens, some unfair holes

Played in the Augusta City Amateur. Greens were running super fast which is fine but they cut the hole on No. 7 front right in a nearly impossible location. Some putts rolled back to you. The hole is tough enough at 230 yards which itself is too long but the hole as laid out was not a fair test of golf. Also the event was not a great value at $140. The Aiken City Amateur gives you free practice rounds all week paying only cart fee if you ride. Augusta only 1 round at cart fee. Plus more food and drinks in Aiken

Fast greens

Greens were a little firm but rolled fairly true. However, they were very fast and hole placement was in tricky locations for the average golfer.
