Ok so I lied…I can play other courses besides Stonebridge. A buddy of mine invited me out to Fort Mill Golf Club for a round on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday we teed off at 12:40 and Sunday at 1:40.
This course had me stumped both days. The layout of the course is sort of an old school links style with some rolling terrain. A little water here and there makes it interesting. Fairly wide open course with a few holes requiring precision but nothing too crazy. The biggest thing about this course that had me stumped were the speed of the greens. The greens were in nice enough shape, not too much in the way of dead spots but man they were long and slooooowwwww. It was just shy of putting on shag carpet. I could not for the life of me get the speeds embedded in my head. What looked like a putt that should roll nicely invariably stopped 5 ft short of the cup.
I’m used to those greens at Stonebridge so putting on these were a real nightmare for me.
I can speak highly of the staff, very nice and outgoing guys. Clubhouse is nice and the course is in pretty good shape this time of year.
A wee bit pricey perhaps for the overall condition of the course and considering there are nicer courses that can be played for the same or cheaper.
Overall I would go back out and play but hold my breath as I stepped on the 1st tee hoping that green 400yds away has been mowed.
