This course is tucked away down in Lancaster, SC and opened in September 2008. Edgewater Golf Club is an 18-hole championship golf course carved out of the rolling terrain and majestic pines of the Carolina country. It features A1/A4 Bent grass greens (similar to Augusta National's purely A1 Bent grass greens) and Bermuda fairways, rough, and tees.
Memberships offered at great prices - ~$100/mo with $16 cart fees required or $2000 annually with cart fees included.
Played this course the year it first opened and was so impressed that I make the trip a couple of times each season to play it. Edgewater is regularly featured in my annual Top 10 list of the best public courses in the Charlotte area. The greens are some of the best Bentgrass greens I've played around Charlotte and Edgewater is one of the few public courses to still have Bentgrass. My favorite hole is the short 429yd par 5 #17 -- my first two rounds I shot eagle-birdie on this hole! My hell hole was the seemingly benign 386-yd par 4 3rd hole. This dogleg right has a tall tree guarding the turn and then a lake that curls around the green -- it bit me twice my first 2 rounds. The staff here is great and you can get the low twilight rate ($30) after 2pm on any day. There are also coolers about every 3 or 4 holes on the course with free water bottles. The course is a bit of a haul from Charlotte, but fairly easy to get to if you come down Hwy 521 to Hwy 9.
A tucked away gem just across the state line. The course is in fantastic shape. The fairways are starting to get grassy and the greens were rolling nicely. I highly recommend playing this course.Read The Review
Overall course was in good shape. Many places still wet with all the rain. Greens were rolling nicely, but have plenty of unfixed divots. They are in the process of cleaning several trees out. Still one of my favorite courses to play.Read The Review
Fairways were in great shape. Bunkers normal. Greens were extremely soft and there were a tone of ball marks that were not repaired. Fun course but a haul from Charlotte. Rangers did not do a great job keeping the pace of play on track. We skipped a hole on the back 9 to get ahead of the slow foursome in front of us (7:40AM). Probably saved us 40-50 minutesRead The Review
Golf course was in decent shape. Greens were nice but slow and inconsistent in terms of speed from green to green. Collars on some of the greens were chewed up and there were some places that were ground under repair. My groups biggest complaint was pace of play. Our tee time was 10:30 and we were told on the putting green that they were “at least” 30 mins behind. We teed off around 11 and we’re told to expect a 5.5 hour round of golf even though there were rangers on the course. I understand a 4.5 hour round but 5.5-6 hours to play is unacceptable. If you go, try being one of the first groups off to avoid the all day round of golf.Read The Review
First time playing here in about a year and again I was not disappointed. Fairways, tee boxes and greens were in great shape. I think the greens are still bent grass and they were kind of soft so had to repair a lot of ball marks. They rolled pretty smooth but were definitely slower than Waterford, the course I play weekly. Staff was friendly as always and they had a ranger out keeping an eye on the pace of play. Definitely a top ten course in the area.Read The Review
