"Great course"

7/5/20: Review by sd84

I have not played this course in forever, back when there wasn't a clubhouse and they had a trailer. And the green on #1 was on the other side of the pond behind the present location of the green. It may have even been last century. I hadn't gone back because it wasn't in...

Description

This is an older course, originally built in 1948 to service the mill workers. It has a nice clubhouse and friendly membership plans. The course has a more classic layout than today's tracks and is very walkable. The front 9 holes were designed by Donald Ross, with George Cobb finishing the course's last 9 holes. The course was renovated under the direction of Clyde Johnston in 2008. It is located right in the heart of Fort Mill. This course is a very junior-friendly place and you'll likely see alot of father-son pairs.

B-Man's Take

I've only played here a few times, but I like the classic layout. The greens are now MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermuda and are well-kept and cut to be fast. The par 3's are all hefty from the white/member's tees at 154+. There are several holes with water in play and every hole is well-bunkered. My favorite hole is probably #16 because of the picturesque, severely downhill approach shot into this par 5. My least favorite would probably be #12, another par 5, but this one with a tee shot over a pond and an uphill approach. The course is pretty straightforward with very few blind shots or doglegs and the classic layout with holes running side-by-side can be forgiving. With a friendly staff, the walkability, and a nice 19th hole restaurant bar, this is a nice member club that's open for public play. Rack rates here are some of the highest in Charlotte to preserve times for members -- look for online deals!

    "Worth playing"

    Fort Mill is in very good condition. Fairways are lush. Rough has a few wear spots that generally do not impact play. Greens are almost fully healed from aeration and rolled good all day, with very consistent speed. Very classic layout, and one of my favorite summer courses for years.

    "Worth playing"

    Tee to green in excellent shape. An number of holes have hard-pan dirt off the fairways and some first cut, but this has pretty much always been the case. Greens had been aerated fairly recently but were rolling well and in another week should be darn near perfect. Great layout and not an easy one by any means. Donald Ross designed front nine and George Cobb designed back nine, 'nuf said.

    The hits are coming fast and furious now... all Leroy Springs golf courses have shut down effective today. That's Springfield, Fort Mill, Lancaster and Chester Golf Clubs.

    Statement from Leroy Springs:

    "Despite the precautions we have taken, many of our staff positions conduct transactions with the public which have been difficult to isolate. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to suspend operations at all four Springs Golf courses, effective the end of the day today (April 1, 2020). Maintenance operations will continue."

    "Perfect"

    Ft Mill golf club is a Ross and Cobb design. Tee to green course was in best shape I have ever seen. Greens rolled true at medium to fast pace. Fun course to play and best value for your dollar. Proshop staff is always friendly.

    "Average"

    This was my 3rd or 4th time playing FM, the other times were all last summer. The course was not good this time around. Fairways were mediocre at best, the green on 2 was dismal. Overall, this was VERY overpriced and I will not be back until I read that improvements have been made.
