The course is in pretty good shape for the winter conditions. There was hardly anyone there because it was cart path only. HEADS UP! According to the pro shop, it will probably be cart path only through April.
The Carolina Golf Journal, the newspaper-like publication found at vaious courses, has an article stating The Divide is “Returning to ‘must play’status”. I always enjoyed the layout, but haven’t played it since 2016. Was disappointed then and this was after avoiding it for 6 years prior due to poor conditions. Anyone play out there lately?
That’s absurd. I play there once or twice a year just to check conditions. I live 3 minutes away and drive by it several times a week. I’m not sure The Divide was ever a must play even in its heyday. Nevertheless, there’s no way it’s achieved that (again) yet. It will take a few seasons of dedicated effort just to make it regularly playable in my opinion. Over the last 2 years whenever I’ve played there the conditions have ranged from goat track to decent at best. While I’ve seen steady improvement the past few times, it’s a slow return to playability not a meteoric rise to must play status. My advice is, play a casual round there when it’s convenient and see how it is, but don’t plan a serious round expecting it to be great.
