Rock Hill, SC for Thanksgiving weekend

I am hoping to sneak out while the rest of the family goes Black Friday shopping. If I can get out alone, it appears that Renaissance Park is the obvious favorite, but if I have some cousins come along, it doesn't look very beginner friendly. What courses in the area would be good for beginners if I can't get out alone?

Winthrop (non-gold version) right in Rock Hill is beginner friendly if you bring a map for navigation.

Winget or Eager Beaver are the friendliest to noobs if you venture into South Charlotte.

I'd play Nevin, RL Smith, Renny, Hornets Nest (in that order) if I were running solo and wanted a challenge.

We'll probably pass each other on the road, lol.

Fewell is definitely way too short. Boyd looks like a possibility but there are no pictures on here. Winget looks like a fun course, but I think the lanes might be too tight for newbs.

Doesn't Winthrop play around the lake? Does the water not come into play in the non gold layout? I am usually pretty good with navigation with a map.

Eager Beaver looks pretty good. Has a little wider gaps than Winget, but still some challenge.

I'll look into the more challenging courses a little later. I really doubt I can get out solo.

Winthrop in the non-Gold layout does play around the lake but you don't have to carry any shots over water like USDGC rounds.

You could play at York Middle School. The short tees are beginner friendly and the long tees can be pretty tough. The course will not be crowded and I think everyone will enjoy it.

I would not take beginners to winthrop lake because some of the holes are close to the lake. If they are still hyzering rhbh then 18 is going to be tough for them.

Eager Beaver has 2 sets of tees. Your noobs can play the shorts, and you can play the longs if you really need the extra challenge. I've been playing 20 years and shoot about 930 golf, and I love playing with my noob friends from the short tees -- especially if a beverage is involved.

Winget is awesome, but it's definitely less noob friendly, depending on how noob the noobs are.

Boyd is a good park for beginners. Some interesting shots. I played it a couple times when I was in rock hill. The elon courses are pretty nice. Eager is a great course to work on putters/approach shots and good for beginners. angry beaver is a long wooded course.

Nevin in charlotte is a great course. Reminded me of deer lakes.
