Been awhile since I made the trek down to Lancaster to check out Edgewater again. I really enjoy this course but it is over an hour from my house. So this day, I made a 36 hole day of it with the first 18 holes here and the second at Carolina Lakes (just up the road in Indian Land about 30 minutes back towards home). This is a very fun layout, starting with a nearly driveable par 4 opening hole (downhill 300-325 yards). Both myself and my playing partner opened with pretty easy birdies. The par 5’s are reachable — especially the 17th hole — and there are a couple of other short par 4’s (like #9) where you can have just a short pitch shot left for your approach. The course does have teeth though and off the fairway you can get into trouble with trees, brush and creeks. It helps to have a GPS app on your phone to know when to risk it off the tee and when to avoid hazards. The Bentgrass greens are a dying breed in the Charlotte area and they are kept in great shape here. The greens were very quick, even though you could still see punch marks from aeration last month. This course is definitely worth a trip — maybe do what I did and pair it up with Lancaster, Carolina Lakes or another course on your way back home and play 36!
