Living just minutes down the road from the Cobb's Glen Country Club, I have gotten plenty of play-time on this course and enjoy it as a sort of 'home' course for me. The prices ranges quite a bit from about $45 on weekend mornings to just under $25 in the late afternoon and evening portions of weekdays. If you're looking to save money, watch for discounted 'twilight' times during the week (after 3 pm).

As a 20 or so handicap golfer, I find the course enjoyable and not too challenging. If I was hitting 300 yd drives, putting short/mid irons on the green and was an expert with my wedges, the course probably wouldn't be too challenging but from my experiences out there, most golfers on the course are about where I am. In an effort to save space, I'll list some traits of the course I've noticed.

Pro) If you're a right-handed player who fights a slice or fade, this course will help you in places. The front-9 is soft on the right side.

Pro) The condition of the fairways and rough is very good. The fairways are certainly rewarding (and sizable), but the rough is not too 'rough.'

Pro) The greens are probably the largest in Anderson, SC. Noticeably larger than Anderson CC and Brookstone, and although the greens aren't in perfect shape, their rolling contours and large size will test you.

Con) If you're a high handicap player, you'll lose some balls on the course the first time through.

Con) Even though I'm a 20-handicap, I like a challenge and am willing to lose a ball or two in gambling. While there are water hazards located on several back-9 holes, the front-9 is completely void of it. I wish it were more evenly spread.

Con) This course has about 3 times the number of bunkers as similar courses around the area have (Brookstone/Anderson CC). Each green is framed with 2-3 bunkers along its perimeter and each hole has at least 1 (if not 3, 4 or 5) along the fairway. If you struggle in the sand, you could be in for a bad day!

Con) Finally, the driving range, tee boxes and greens could be in better shape but I'll wait until the weather changes to condemn an upstate course for that.

Con) I should also note that this course is very popular. You will see divots on the tee boxes and ball marks on the greens. Considering the amount of play it sees, this course is in really solid shape.

Customer Service

Can't comment as I don't really ask anything of them other than to take my money and give me a cart key.

I Like the course because they let the high school golf team play there for free. It is a challenging course every time you play it.

Brookstone is the best kept secret in the Upstate... With the houses still under development the course is still very easy to get out on during the weekends when there is not a members outing.... If you usually walk on as a single you'll find a staff that is always willing to work you in and get you out for the day... I had the pleasure of finding out about this course the year it opened in 1999 during my first year living here in SC... By watching the evolution of this course I can say the management group appears to be very serious about making this a routine stop in the Upstate for weekend golfers....

Customer Service

The management group has always been willing to accomodate the lone golfer... I hope as this course develops and the adjacent housing developments grow that this is not forgotten... Once of the best courses I routinely played in NC before I moved here which was another Tom Jackson masterpiece became a locked down fort after the houses were completed and their clubhouse finished...

Great golf course! I have played the course several times since it opened and it has improved by leaps and bounds. The new Bentgrass greens are as good as any you will ever play.

Customer Service

By far the best service in the upstate of SC. From the golf shop to the grounds crew, you could not ask for a better experience.

This is one of the more challenging courses to play in the upstate of sc. This is a fairly new course that is just coming into its own. brookstone has an interesting layout, but you will have to play a couple of rounds to shoot low here. overall a really nice course.

Customer Service

customer service is whats to be expected, friendly people on the course and in the clubhouse.

Fairly decent track however they used crummy grass and some of the holes Tom Jackson designed maybe some of the most impressive golf hole design dabocles known to mankind in the golf world. However can easily break par so not much of a challenge!
