Marion Military Institute Golf Course -- New Golfer approves
Review by: Harry William Reineke IV I am a very new golfer, I've only been at it for 4 weeks, but I attend Marion Military Institute, and this is a very nice course. THe superintendant is our coach, and he teaches us a lot about how each hole slopes and turns, which is nice, because he is a certified AAA instructor, and he knows our course better than anyone. ALl in all, its a very nice course, and presents a challenge to many golfers. The fairwats are seperated by trees, but dont let that fool you, you can still accidentally hit into another one. When you come off the first green, the second tee is behind the green, and the fiarway is perpendicular to #1, not parallel, thats #6. Its a common mistake, but you get used to it. The greens tend to slope all over the place, but they are nice and fast most days. All in all, nine very nice holes with raised tees and greens on a few holes. Highly recommended by me.

Heatherwood Golf Club -- A golf course should not be located on this property
Review by: Allen Ernstberger This golf course is an example of the fact that you cannot take any piece of land and design a golf course on it. The property on which Heatherwood is located is so steep and tight that the designers would have to have moved millions of cubic yards of earth to make suitable fairways. The course features a Par 5 for example which should be played with a 6 iron from the tee, an 8 iron for a second shot and an approach with a Wedge. The saving grace for this course is the good bent grass greens. If tight fairways and blind shots are your bag, then give this one a try.
