Greenwood South Carolina Golf Guide

The Lakelands Area Offers Beautiful Lakes and Outstanding Golf

By Brian Weis


Beautiful Greenwood is located in the Lower Piedmont region of Upstate South Carolina. The region is known for its abundant lakes, and the locals have coined the area "The Lakelands."

Just as there are abundant lakes, there are also abundant golf courses. More than 15 courses are within a 45 minute drive from Greenwood including the Davis Love design course, Patriot Golf Club at Grand Harbor.

Where To Play

Tara Golf Club at Savannah Lakes
The Tara Golf Club at Savannah Lakes Village opened in 1993 and was the first of two lakefront golf clubs to be completed in the 4,000 acre community. The Tara golf course found its inspiration from the famous plantation in "Gone With The Wind." The course is very hilly and lined with stately oaks and pines. The greens are undulating, elevated and fast, and both the #9 and #18 holes share a green similar to St. Andrews in Scotland. There are water hazards that come into play on three holes.

4 Tees
Rates: $65-45 depending on season

Getting There:
From Hwy 378, Turn in front of the Village Store and take Hwy 7 North. Turn right onto Country Club Drive (4th road from right after turning on to Hwy 7). Follow Country Club Drive until you reach the Tara Golf Club on your right

In 2016, Brian won The Shaheen Cup, an award given to a golf travel writer by his peers.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.

On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
