Harbour Town Golf Links Review

Graylyn LoomisCourse Reviews4 Comments

When I played Harbour Town for the first time around eight years ago, I got a last minute late afternoon tee time while on a road trip. Little did I know that I’d later live and work near Harbour Town and play the course many more times. After my most recent round I decided it was time to rewrite my … Read More

Currahee Club Review

Graylyn LoomisCourse Reviews1 Comment

The drive to Currahee Club feels like you are heading into the middle of nowhere. As you pass rural northern Georgia towns and farms, you round a corner and see an elegant southern-style building at the end of the road.

The Creek Club at Reynolds Lake Oconee Review

Graylyn LoomisCourse Reviews2 Comments

The Creek Club is the only private course at Reynolds Lake Oconee, and the experience differs from the resort courses in the small details. Due to the comparatively little amount of play on the course, the Creek Club is able to do things differently. For instance, the Creek greens are very fast bent grass, which is rare for a course … Read More

Reynolds Lake Oconee – Oconee Course Review

My round at Reynolds’ Oconee course began with a little warm-up… It was a long drive competition and my partner was Stewart Cink. Our opponents were Brian Harmon and an AJGA player and we were hitting balls at the Kingdom, which is the state of the art TaylorMade fitting center at Reynolds.

Kiawah Island Club – River Course Review

Graylyn LoomisCourse Reviews2 Comments

The Kiawah Island Club flies below the radar on Kiawah Island. Membership is only available to island property owners, and their premium amenities are set behind additional sets of gates on the island. The River Course is the club’s Tom Fazio design, and its beautiful new clubhouse acts as a hub for the membership. I was fortunate enough to play … Read More
