Bring a few balls more than you usually do if you haven't been out for a while. Water comes into play on many holes. GPS on carts a welcome aid especially on elevation changes.

We have this little deal where we play two man scrambles with a bunch of retired postal service workers. It's not much a course, but it's a spot of fun in this format. Edible food is available nearby. Getting hammered always works in Santee too.

A golfing group played one of three rounds at Lake Marion, where we were well provided for. The course is well maintained, and the pro shop had as good a selection of golf equipment and accessories as I've seen.

We always start our golf outing here as it is a very fair course but still challanging enough. Since greens were replaced a couple years ago it has improved this course alot. Highly recommend this course for anyone.

Friends and I have played this course since 1990 we are all 15 to 19 handicap golfers. It took us 1 hour and 15 minutes to play the first three holes. The rounds were averaging 5 Hours and 15 minutes plus. We came up to hole # 6 with 4 golfers on the green, a foursome , another foursome,a threesome all waiting on the tee, and another foursome coming off #5. We called the club house and asked if a ranger could come out and help. We were told they could see where all the carts where on their computer via the GPS system in the carts and it WAS NOT BACKED UP. Painful ,,,one of the guys in the foursome behind us quit after 9 holes. Groups of guys playing from the blues tees that had no business playing from back there. No management control of play whatsoever.
