Designed in 1918 by prolific course architect Thomas Bendelow—reputed as "The Johnny Appleseed of American Golf" after designing roughly 600 courses over 35 years—Anderson Country Club's 18-hole, par 71 course stretches across 6,402 yards of lush Carolina woodlands. The emerald landscape features mostly straight-ahead fairways and favors a straightforward design in which tight tree lines provide the bulk of the challenge and most obstacles are easily identified from a distance. Four chromatically designated tee options make the course surmountable for players of all abilities, allowing scratch golfers to play alongside 10-handicap frenemies or competitively deficient alter egos.

At Highland Walk Golf Course, Bermuda grass fairways and greens arch over 6,407 yards of steep hills studded by tall Georgia pines for a challenging 18-hole layout. Throughout the round, the course’s dramatically undulating terrain gives way to sweeping views of the countryside as well as numerous blind shots, giving an advantage to players whose golf bags double as periscopes. Georgian course architect Denis Griffith’s creative use of the terrain is on full display at the signature 17th hole, where golfers drive the ball from terraced tee boxes and over the shadowy, intimidating depths of a ravine. Though the elevation changes place precise shot making at a premium, the course features relatively open fairways and greens, providing ample landing areas for aggressive drives and caddies airlifted in for emergency putt-reading services.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,407 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 71.4 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 131 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options

For eight years, Kim Kelley was in charge of organizing consignment events for the Upstate. In 2012, she decided to incorporate some holiday spirit into her planning and created the first-annual Holly Jolly Holiday Fair. At the Fair, visitors of all ages ring in the season with Santa, Manual Holiday - the elf, and performers, while local artisans, crafters, and food vendors dole out their goods. The sound of merry music rings through the gathering, and aromas of fresh-cut pine trees fill the air with extra holiday cheer as opposed to just new-car smell.
