Course Information

Holly Tree Country Club’s eighteen-hole golf course is laid out over rolling Foothills terrain. The course was designed by George Cobb. The course plays 6,790 yards from the blue tees, 6,340 yards from the member tees and 5,234 from the women’s and junior tees. Four beautiful lakes and Gilder Creek bring water into play on nine of the holes. The course features a double St. Andrews-style green serving 9 and 18.  Scorecard available at

The Preserve at Verdae Golf Club is now the only course within 60 miles of Greenville that features drought-resistant Mini Verde Bermuda grass, a strain which requires fewer pesticides and fertilizer to stay green throughout hot summers and cool winters. These greens putt beautifully allowing for a truer consistent roll of the golf ball. The Preserve at Verdae’s tour quality practice facility features a multi-level tee box, separate chipping and practice bunker area, and a large practice putting green.  Scorecard available at[nggallery id=803]
