Chechessee Creek Golf Club Course Review
The Chechessee CreekGolf Club was designed by architects Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore and it sits on a beautiful piece of real estate near a marshland in South Carolina. This golf course will impress you with its classic character and understated design, as it rests majestically amidst towering pines and oak trees, just North of Callawassie Island. The Chechessee CreekGolf Club was first opened for players back in 2000 and it became immediately a huge hit among connoisseurs, due to its imaginative putting surfaces and the raised green complexes, not to mention the very interesting jagged edged bunkering, all these making the Chechessee CreekGolf Club to stand out from the crowd. The green-sites are elevated 2ft higher for improved drainage and to promote fast and firm playing conditions. Apart from that, the most notable feature of this Coore and Crenshaw designed course is its bunkering job, despite the lack of a dramatic landscape to work with. The architects managed to mitigate the somewhat dull topography using their imagination, thus creating challenging and very interesting holes, which are also very playable regardless of your skill levels.
The best holes in this writers opinion are the par 3s, which are as good as they get, given the featureless terrain upon theyre built on. These two architects managed to build from scratch a true golf masterpiece. From its inception, the Chechessee CreekGolf Club has been known for its magisterial routing, the signature of Coore and Crenshaw, together with its low profile and timeless design, being an outstanding exercise in restraint. Long story short, playing your favorite game on the Chechessee Creek will feel like a step back in time, as this golf course is nothing short of a tribute/homage to the old-school coastal designs of Lowcountry and South Carolina. At Chechessee CreekGolf Club, everything is about golf, about passion and camaraderie, while walking the turf with your caddie is a precious tradition.
