Tega Cay is a unique 27-hole golf club just south of NC-SC border off I-77 near Rock Hill, SC. You can play any combination of the 3 nine-hole layouts and make 3 different rounds out of it. All three layouts have many elevation changes and scenic views of the Lake Wylie area. With a huge clubhouse and event pavilion, it is a great place for golf outings.
The 3 nines are called Grande View (GV), Carolina Pines (CP), and the Cove. Grande View is the newest and most challenging nine. Rates are discounted for residents of Tega Cay. Overlooking the practice putting green facility is a beautiful event pavilion designed specifically for large groups. The facility includes a scoreboard, tables and chairs, corner serving area for beverages and restrooms. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the 23,000 square foot Glennon Community and Conference Center, great for hosting even larger events.
Finally played my first round back at this course (May '07) since '99. It did seem familiar, especially on the Grande View nine, which was brand new when I first played it. This course is fun to play for its variety of holes and required shots, as well as its uniqueness compared to most area courses. The holes have many elevation changes, beautiful scenery, and challenging hazards that require some daunting carries over water. The layout includes 27 holes, though I've never played the Cove nine. The Grande View nine begins and ends with a picturesque par 4 with an approach over water. It also has a cool downhill par 3 where the tee is elevated some 100 feet or so. What drove me somewhat nuts about this course, though, was the lack of yardage markers and any kind of hole description or picture. Most nicer courses have the course well marked with sprinkler heads and/or picture placards on the tee boxes. There were several blind shots and hazards in play where knowing the yardages to the trouble would have helped immensely. I hit at least 3 great tee shots in one round that ended up lost or in trouble. So, it pays to play your first round here with a Tega Cay veteran. All in all, this is a course I'd recommend you try to see if you like it. Look for the best rate using a foursome coupon.
First time here in about a year and was not disappointed. Course was in great shape and the greens were the fastest , smoothest I've putted on this year. I really love the layout and it's definitely in my top ten Charlotte area courses. My only complaint, yes it's pace of play, was that we saw no one in front of us on the the first 9 and then had to wait for two foursomes on every hole on the back. A little under 2 hrs on the front and a little over 2 1/2 hours on the back and my threesome walked. Not sure if the pro shop sent these groups off on the back ahead of us or what.Read The Review
Bring your A Game! Tega Cay is in phenomenal shape. Tees and fairways are perfect. The greens are spectacular; the best I've ever seen them. They are smooth and fast. Fastest I've played anywhere around Charlotte this year. They have also pinched the fairways in even more than usual on an already tight driving course. The rough is thick but playable. They had gotten a decent amount of rain a couple of nights ago, so it was cart path only, and some of the bunkers hadn't been repaired after the rain, but the sand was still in excellent condition. Pace of play was good on a weekday afternoon, and the staff and service were good as always.Read The Review
Tega Cay is in great shape. Tee boxes, fairway, rough, and sand all very well maintained and conditioned. Greens rolled great, with consistent speed all day. Superb pace of play, as well, on a Saturday mid-morning.Read The Review
I love this layout and agree that it is important to play with someone familiar with the course. It is critical on a lot of holes to be not just in the fairway but the correct side of the fairway. The greens were smooth and very fast and the fairways, tee boxes and bunkers were in great shape.Read The Review
Better than good, but not perfect. Very impressed that most any area not just about perfect was well marked as ground under repair. Looks like they've been doing some work on drainage areas. Otherwise the greens and fairways are about the best I have seen all year anywhere.Read The Review
