Pros: -Beautiful Course! Plays along Furman lake and golf course.
-Offers a balanced mix of open shots and wooded holes.
-Course provides a few ace runs as well as longer more challenging holes.
-Course is very well maintained
-Amazing DGA baskets that are very well installed.
-Well made metal tee signs recently installed.
-Bathrooms and water fountain are located between holes 8 and 9.
Cons: -The back 4 holes play along the lake in an area heavily trafficked by bikers, walkers, runners, tanners, etc. which make it very difficult to play when the weather is nice.
-Could be a very solid 18-hole course if more holes were added along the woods following hole 4.
-Some tee signs were facing the wrong direction or were far removed from the actual concrete block tee markers. They seemed to play all tee signs on the closest tree (whether it was actually close or not).
-No concrete tees.
-Hole 1 is difficult to find without walking the course backwards.
-Some hole transitions are somewhat difficult to follow your first time playing through.
Other Thoughts: This course is located on the most beautiful college campus in South Carolina and offers plenty of challenge for all levels of players. This is not only the best 9-hole course in the upstate, but it's also the best college course I have played.

Pros: One of the best 9 hole courses ive played
Many holes force tight shots
Great practice course
Cons: Sort of a con: the course doesnt have a single hole that is right to left giving advantage to forehand and left handed throwers (also is a pro in that it is great practice )
No rules sign to instruct players about ob's that seem to have been set up such as on hole 3 behind the basket
Some tees are hard to find so directions would be helpful.
Other Thoughts: a set of pro tees on some of the shorter hole would make this course very interesting
I hope room for a back nine is found because if its as good as the first nine this would be a great course.
