I played this course on a Monday in September, it was sunny and about 70 degrees but a very strong & gusty wind, maybe 20 to 25 mph. I had never played this course before so that certainly impacted conditions of play and my experience overall. I would say, the front...

This young course is tucked away down in Lancaster, SC and opened in September 2008. Edgewater Golf Club is an 18-hole championship golf course carved out of the rolling terrain and majestic pines of the Carolina country. It features A1/A4 Bent grass greens (similar to Augusta National's purely A1 Bent grass greens) and Bermuda fairways, rough, and tees.

B-Man's Take

Played this course when it first opened and was very impressed. I try to make the trek (an hour plus for me) back here at least once or twice a year. The greens are some of the best bentgrass greens I've played around Charlotte. My favorite hole is the short 429yd par 5 #17 -- my first two rounds I shot eagle-birdie on this hole! My hell hole was the seemingly benign 386-yd par 4 3rd hole. This dogleg right has a tall tree guarding the turn and then a lake that curls around the green -- it bit me twice my first 2 rounds. The staff here is great and you can get the low twilight rate ($30) after 2pm on any day. There are also coolers about every 3 or 4 holes on the course with free water bottles. The course is a bit of a haul from Charlotte, but fairly easy to get to if you come down Hwy 521 to Hwy 9.

    "Great course"

    Made the 90-minute drive down to Edgewater and since a lot of people weren't there, got my round done in 3:10, never ran into anyone in front of us and was never pushed from behind. I was a refreshing from 5-hour rounds recently. As for the course it self, I'm old-school in that the best courses are ones where you can a) walk and b) the next tee is near the green of the hold just completed. I knew going in that wasn't the case here since it is 7.2 miles to get around and very hilly, but it's still a great course. The tees (I played the gold tees - 6571 yards) and the fairways were in great shape. You really have to control your ball off the tee and keep it in play, which I did OK at even though my ball-striking was a bit off. The bent grass greens were definitely stressed out from the heat, with the ones with the fans in poorer condition with patchy grass, ball marks and some kind of plant I couldn't identify on those. Fortunately, they didn't seem to be in my line at any time so I was lucky there. The greens that were more in the open were in much better shape, but all of them rolled well. Also, the black flags on some of the holes were almost impossible to see against the backdrop of trees, I could see the yellow flagstick easier. The other point of contention was difficulty in getting yardages. There are 150 and 100 stakes in the fairways, but knowing how far it was to the corner of doglegs or how far it was to lay up to on par-5's was total guesswork. Also, not knowing how deep a green is made for a little more guessing as well. And it wasn't always easy to find a sprinkler head (they are marked) in some places. Still, it was a very enjoyable round at a great pace for a good price on a challenging course.

    "Great course"

    My first visit. Beautiful course on a spectacular, scenic property. Tee boxes and fairways were in outstanding condition. Bermuda rough was thick and tough. Greens had a few stressed areas but putted smoothly and consistently - problems more cosmetic than substantive. Played Gold markers, and it was tough - 140+ slope with multiple 400+ yard par 4s and 200+ yard par 3s. But it looked too short from the Blue (regular) tees, with a couple holes even requiring lay-up. Big gap of 500+ yards between the markers, so probably will set-up better for me with a hybrid approach next time. Great value.

    "Great course"

    Great first visit to Edgewater. A bit of a hike to get there but well worth it. Didn't play well but loved the golf course. Great condition. Fair. Good test. The back nne is much harder than the front 42/48. Put it in the fairway and you can score well here. Greens were very soft on the approach shots and a bit speedy but fair. Ready to go back tomorrow. Wish the clubhouse would open.

    "Great course"

    My first review on the site! Edgewater is a great course within the greater Charlotte region. It's over an hour from my house (as it is for most), but I never mind the beautiful drive south through cow pastures and country roads. Once you pull into the Edgewater community, you feel like you are at a true golf destination. Upon parking, one of the staff members immediately brings a cart to your tailgate to load up your clubs. Currently, the clubhouse is closed due to COVID restrictions, however the walk-up window is a very convenient alternative to going inside. In terms of the course itself, the conditions were great! The greens were aerated last month, but they have grown and are rolling nicely. They have A1/A4 Bent grass green that always seem to roll true. The collars around the greens could use some attention which made putts off the green a tad unpredictable. Fairways and majority of the tee boxes were in great shape. The layout is fantastic (front is easier than the back) and Edgewater is a true challenge to your golf game- check it out, it's worth the trip!

The Divide closing for greens renovation this month

Great news for The Divide! The course was approved for a $350k greens renovation starting this month. The greens will be sodded with Diamond Zoysia grass, the same as Eagle Chase in Marshville (and those have been good year round). The work starts next week and the course...
