Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Average"

9/16/22: Review by KirklandSpecial

Tee boxes - above average Fairways - excellent Greens - below average Played the course more times than I can count in the last 5 years. The greens were the best the crew can make them, but more than half of them have dead spots. They put the flags in the best spots,...

    We got at least 2 inches of rain on the north side of town Friday so the course was wet and path only. Course is in really great shape. Their club championship is next weekend so it'll be perfect for that and after. They do something interesting with the tee sheet on the weekend. They have ten minute tee times, starting groups on 1 and 10 until 930 and then they don't start anyone else until noon. Seems to be working for them. Fix your ball marks.

    I'll make this short and sweet. This course is on par with Edgewater and Springfield as far as conditions are concerned. Nearly perfect. Fix your ball marks.

    Somewhere between really good and perfect. Tees, fairways, bunkers are all in great shape. The greens, which were all replaced last year, are in really good shape but seem to be a little inconsistent in speed. They have a beverage cart now too.

    The course is nearly perfect. Only complaint is that the bunkers could use a little work. A little. Rest of the course is perfect. Price includes range balls and there's coolers of bottled water throughout the course. Course does not get much play (which is why its in great shape) and it wouldn't surprise me at all to one day hear it's closing. Go play it before it does. Worth the trip. Fix your ball marks.

    Course is in great shape. Tees, fairways,bunkers, greens are all in great shape. Rough is very thick and will cost you some shots. Lost a couple balls in the 2nd cut. Not much else to say. Go play it. Fix your ball marks.

    Course is in great shape. Tees, fairways, bunkers are in great shape. Greens are in excellent condition but a bit slow. A couple still had syringe size punch marks but it didn't affect the roll. Rough is cut short but is extremely thick. Only issue was that on 14 the ranger told us we needed to speed up because there was a hole open between us and the group in front of us. I wouldn't have taken issue with this except that the group behind us was no where in sight. Ranger got a little ticked when we told him we'd speed up if they caught us. They didn't.

    Hadn't played here for a while and I'm very impressed. Whole course is in excellent shape. Pace of play was excellent. Greens here are also pretty soft (not as soft as Highland Creek) and are starting to mark up but hopefully they'll stay in good shape. Only complaint was the $6 they charge for a small bucket of balls. If you haven't played it or haven't been there in awhile go check it out.

    Course is in great shape. Tees, fairways, greens all in excellent shape. Bunkers are hit and miss but they are saying all of them are getting new sand. The greens are very soft and since no one seems to know how to fix a ball mark they are getting marked up. Combine that with The Trail offering discounts and they will get bad very quickly. Play it now if you're going to play it.
