Golfers traversing Creek Golf Club's 6,625-yard course enjoy plateaued tee boxes and fairways lined with mature trees. The 18-hole course showcases smooth, diamond Zoysia grass greens that tightly swathe the terrain's parkland-style contours like skinny jeans on the Jolly Green Giant's hips. Golf balls fall like hail from the skies above the Club's driving range, where synthetic mats facilitate practice during inclement weather and grass tees provide a natural lie for swing rehearsals. The range serves as the classroom for lessons with PGA professional Mike Byce, who assists those looking to add distance to their drives or transition from a conventional putter to a belly putter or a sawed-off curtain rod. After a day at the links, guests can refuel at the Club's bar and grill, which serves burgers, salads, cold-cut sandwiches, and other classic eats.

Duffers can turn to The Range on Oak Grove for assistance in three key aspects of golfing: swing, distance, and accuracy. The first falls to PGA teaching professional Phil Cassidy, whose sage instructions can be tailored for students of all ages and a swathe of swing types. The latter two are the domain of the range itself, where markers calibrated with a laser distance finder provide players with pinpoint feedback on their long shots, and targets that mimic course layouts challenge chippers to accurately drop approaching shots and frustrated overhand lobs. Should visitors not have their own clubs on hand, the range curates a collection of loaners.

The fairways of Greer Country Club’s 18-hole course arch over rolling hills and weave through groves of trees, offering up narrow landing zones on a layout that rewards accuracy over power. Like a putting green that began as a shag carpet, the course emerged from humble beginnings. A group of local businessmen backed its construction in 1955, and many early supporters spent time extracting rocks from the turf by hand; the first round of golf cost $6. Since then, the 6,300-yard course has matured into a well-manicured circuit of Bermuda grass fairways and small, bent-grass greens, outlined by Carolina pines and dotted by water hazards on four holes. Open year round, the course complements its course with a driving range, where golfers can find their swings or discreetly practice archery before taking to the first tee. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-72 course * Bermuda grass fairways and bent grass greens * Length of 6,300 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 70.3 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 121 from the farthest tees
