Golfing is huge and it is taking over! Golfing tournaments are getting major play on the weekends and golfing pros are becoming real celebrities in our homes. With this growing interest in golfing, I thought I would take a look and see where Greenville SC lands as a golfing vacation destination.
In order to get some stats, I am using GolfAdvisor’s website for Greenville. Out of 1,619 reviews, Greenville ranks 4 stars out of 5. Interesting tidbit is that Greenville got 4.2 stars out of 5 for average value for the money. That means people believe playing at our courses is a good deal.
They also listed the top rated golf courses with a criteria of 10 minimum reviews to qualify. Here are the top 10 courses.
- Crosswinds Golf Course (par 3 course). Designers include Tom Fazio Pete Dye, Rees Jones and Arnold Palmer Design.
- The Walker Golf Course at Clemson University
- Connestee Falls Golf Course
- Cherokee Valley Golf Club
- Village Greens Country Club
- Fox Run Country Club
- Willow Creek Golf & Country Club
- The Preserve at Verdae
- Saluda Valley Country Club
- Legacy Pines Golf Club
Looking at GolfAdvisor’s map of golf courses near Greenville, there must be about 50 of them. So your chances of finding a course within your ability and price range are very high. Groupon even has a few deals on golfing games.
Now if it’s public courses you are interested in then Greenville has five of them. The Verdae Greens Golf Club is said to be tournament-quality since it hosts the Greater Greenville Classic each year. With major competition from private clubs the public courses have to stay on top of their game (ha!) just to compete.
So in conclusion, there are many sites where you can look up information about Greenville courses and I would say that Yes! Greenville should be a golfing vacation destination for you. And perhaps if you play a round you can come back and leave us a note about your experience below!
