I'll be near Columbia, SC next month and I am looking to play one or two courses. Does anyone know of a few good courses there? 

Thanks for the suggestions in advance :-D

Oak Hills is a pretty decent public course. There's also a municipal course called Linrick that's a little cheaper, but still pretty decent for a muni. You a single? Or coming with a group?

Calling @Fairway_CY- aren't you just a bit north of Columbia?

I'm not horribly far from there.  Probably about 75 minutes or so.  

If you're up for a bit of a drive, about an hour north is a course called Edgewater in Lancaster, SC.  It's a Fuzzy Zoeller design that's always in pretty good shape (except for the driving range) and is pretty affordable.  

I've heard really good things about Cobblestone from some friends, but I haven't played it myself.

I've played Old Hickory at Fort Jackson and enjoyed it.  Surprised no one from the area mentioned it, but then, it's the only course down there that I've played.

I've played Linrick a few times. It was better than most muni's but I don't know how I would compare it to some of the semi-private courses in the area. This was at least 3-4 years ago though, and I was a much more terrible golfer than I am today!

If you don't mind a short drive to Aiken, SC (about 50 mins) thereis Aiken Golf Club and Cedar Creek.  Both fun courses and relatively inexpensive at $25-$35 a round

including cart.  There is also Persimmon Hill in Saluda and a little farther away are several in Augusta.

I'll be in the Aiken area in a couple of weeks, actually staying in Greenwood SC.  Planning on playing Woodside Plantation Country Club, have you played there?

Jerry,  I have played Woodside and it is a very nice course.  Are you playing The Reserve course of the Plantation course?

The Wisteria course is probably my favorite.  You have 2 par 3 holes that you have to hit over water to get to the green(I usually lose a ball or 2 here), No 8 and 17.  The

course should be in pretty good shape, although we have had a lot of rain and now freezing weather.  Have fun and let me know how you

like it.

Will do.  Can't wait to come down, first time to Augusta.  Any recommendations on places to eat that have good beer?

In Aiken there are a couple of good places.  The Aiken Brewery is good.  A lot depends on what you like to eat.  Whiskey Bar in downtown Augusta along with Luigi's

for Italian.

    • I know her! Her name is Karen. 😄
    • I heard somewhere a long time ago that good players always put their putter and driver together.  Well, doing that didn’t make me a better golfer but now I’m self conscious about that.
    • Hi Cammy - I’m not an instructor, but just noticed a couple things. At the top, it looks like you may be pulling down a bit with the hands without the body weight shifting forward. And also standing up a bit just before impact with the ball. Just a thought. Others may have better advice than me. I’m learning too. Great job though, considering how long you have been playing. Keep it up! 
    • The main issue with golf is time.  When my job and other responsibilities allowed me to play at least once per week and practice in between, I could play consistently in the high 80s.  But as a weekend golfer it’s tough to maintain enough consistency to stay in the low 90s.  Adding age to the equation makes maintaining consistency even more difficult.  It’s still a fun game if you manage your expectations realistically.
    • I have to use single vision lenses only for golf. However, my distance vision lenses do not leave the ball blurry at address.  If your distance vision prescription leaves the ball blurry at address, you might need progressives or bifocals specifically for golf.  I can’t imagine that your reading prescription would leave you with a clear view at 6 feet.  But I’m no optometrist.
