Furman Golf course is located on the backside of the University campus. At this time rates were some of the most expensive in the area for daily fee courses, Rates w/cart were $48 weekday, $56 weekend. Pro shop and on course personnel were helpful and friendly.
The practice area is very large, however it appears that only a small area is untilized. The area the tees were on looked like a minefield, while the rest of the practice tee looked untouched.
The course, redesigned a few years ago, is not so friendly. Elevated, crowned greens with plenty of false fronts that funnel the ball into one of the many bunkers are difficult for many players. Expect to have your ball roll off of at least a handful of greens. Bunkers had little or no sand in the bottom, and two feet of sand in the lips and around the edges.
The greens have lots of contour, and some of the pin positions were very iffy (located on the side of hills, reminded me of a couple of holes on the Putt-Putt course). Greens were in good condition, very firm and fast.
They do have a few sets of tees to shorten the course for seniors and women, but that doesn't lessen the impact of the crowned greens. Good course for single digit handicaps, though you could pay the green fees at many other fine courses in the area and still have money left over for lunch.
