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,...

      Has anyone played this new course in Lancaster, SC? I’d be curious for your feedback. Thanks

      I think Edgewater is as nice as any public/semi-private course in Charlotte. Green fees are reasonable but you make up for it with the drive. Course is not easy but is very playable. The one stand-out characteristic of this course is the greens. They are HUGE. If you feel like making the drive go play the course. The development around it isn’t doing real great so who knows how long it will be open.

      Played Edgewater again yesterday (had a free round that I won in a tournament earlier this year. Tees were in great shape, fairways were really good (a few bare spots), one bunker marked as gound under repair and the greens were nearly perfect. I really, really like this course and wish it was closer.

      A couple of public service announcements:

      1. For those of you wondering about dog fights, demo days etc. Almost every course in Charlotte has a website and many of them have a way to join a mailing list. I get e-mail from dozens of them. They send weekly specials, events, tournaments, etc. I get a lot of otherwise unadvertised prices.

      2. Fix your divots and ballmarks. Please.

      I finally made the drive down to Edgewater near Lancaster. Greens and bunkers are in great shape. Front 9 fairways still have some growing in to do…back 9 in perfect shape. Course is very, very well marked in terms of OB, red stakes etc. Nice driving range and short game area.

      For $55 it’s a good value… but when you factor in a 45 minute longer drive, I’m not sure it’s any better of a golf challenge than Springfield or Carolina Lakes. The first seven holes are really special (don’t hit anything more than a 3 iron on the first tee shot), but then the course gets a little plain vanilla for the much of the round. 17 is a very short par 5 (shoulda been a long 4) and the finishing hole is a good test. But holes 8-16 are just not memorable.

      I’d play it again, but I’m in no rush to do so.

      Though I haven’t played there yet, I’ve read good things. I am on their e-mail list, and wanted to put the word out because they have a lot of fun tournaments going on to incentivize people to make the drive. Thought I would spread the word, so sign up if you’re interested.

      I played in the “Heat Stroke” tourney at Edgewater, and it was a treat. I enjoyed the course and the layout, and thought it was a fair challenge. The back nine was in better shape than the front, but such can be expected for a new course. The greens were terrific, and the terrain is at times breathtaking. Certainly worth the drive to check this one out, but it does take a solid 70 minutes from center city Charlotte. They have a great staff and are committed to working hard to bring players in like me, which I appreciated after being ignored at other courses.

      I have been trying to play new courses lately, and I had heard some good things about Edgewater in Lancaster. I played Friday (11/27) and was pleased at what I saw. The course is a haul from Charlotte, and is literally in the middle of nowhere, but it’s a good layout with very nice greens. It will take some getting used to – I hit what I thought were several good approach shots, only to have 60′ for birdie. I three-putted four times from long range; the greens are huge, with some tough contours. And several elevation changes present challenges for club selection. Overall I was happy with the course. The greens rolled very true, and the course design presented some unique holes. It’s a course that will take a few rounds to adjust to, but it’s a good one.

      Has anyone played at Edgewater since they areated the greens on 9/27? Just checking since we wanted to play on Oct. 7

      My experience is that most greens take at least 4 weeks to get to good condition, 3 to reach conditions that you don’t feel like complaining when you put.

      Dad and I played Edgewater on 10/7 and the greens were perfect! The whole course was perfect, as usual
