"Worth playing"

5/20/24: Review by golferdude

Played the tips..few mud balls due to recent rains. Greens were decent speed but not very receptive (many iron shots and pitches ran off the green). First time here in 8 years. Do like the look with the renovations. Rates are reasonable.

      Big group trip to Hilton Head in the late March. 12 guys, handicaps probably average 15 or so – with some single digits lots of teens and maybe one or two guys with 22+.

      Planning a stop-over play day in the Charlotte area and looking for a place to play 18 or 36 holes before going on down to Hilton Head. Our criteria:
      Fair play – not too easy, not too hard (it will be early spring and many of us will maybe have hit a few balls at most). Just something nice.

      Fair price – we used to play Tanglewood in Winston-Salem every spring. It was fun and was about $45 bucks on a Thursday I think. So something similar I suppose.

      Easy to get to. We dont want to search all day for a course or a decent place to stay. Plus when we are done,! we are gonna finish the drive down to Hilton Head.

      I have been doing a bit of reading and at first I thought about trying Tega Cay because of the 27 holes, but it sounds as tho it is no fun for first timers. I played ballentine once, and the course was ok, but not for the price.

      Any ideas?

      After looking at some others, I was thinking of Fort Mill Golf Club, as sort of equivalent to Tanglewood.

      Any thoughts on this place?

      pretty neat course not too hard not too easy. they redid all 18 greens last year or the year before. make sure to ask about airifying. a lot of courses around town do it twice a year.

      if you are driving down after round, u can also consider Regent Park & Springfield…both off I-77 near the state line/Fort Mill area….Regent has a couple of tricked up greens but is overall a good track..Springfield is a GREAT but fair test overall….also down in Rock Hill there is Waterford..it was designed by Hale Irwin…it’s a couple of minutes off I-77 in SC at exit 79 (kinda behind the Mall)…I think if you play Fort Mill CC you’ll do better $$$ wise, and the front nine is great shape and a vintage Donald Ross design, but i’m afraid the back nine may disappoint a bit…

      Thanks for the tip on Fort Mill, we are now looking at Springfield. Regent Park is aerating when we are going to be there.
