Ferguson Farms Golf


Featured Golf Course Review:
Ferguson Farms Golf -- For a good laid back golf round this was great.
Review by: Davis All in all you get your moneys worth at Ferguson. The course looks as though it does not get to much play as there were not cart paths on some of the holes on the front and you just rode right on the fairway. The fairways are wide open allowing some mishits. Ponds are placed in such a way that water does come into play and creates some challagnging shots. Greens were a little harry but you could deal with them. The monster 600 yard par 5 was interesting. Staff was real nice and beer was cheap (selling point for me) at only 6 dollars for a 6 pack. Good place to go with friends where you do not want to worrry about pace of play. All in all the couse is average but we had a good time.

Goose Creek Golf & Country Club -- Should Be Called "Goo" Creek
Review by: Kove Michaels Smelly and unsightly. Hardly words you would expect to describe a golf course, but they fit Goose Creek. The first thing that hits you is how scrubby and unkempt this unrelentingly flat layout looks. Wind blasted, half-dead pines dot the course, and mangy, scrubby brush abounds. One hole opens up onto a field used as a display lot for an adjoining purveyor of low-end, prefab sheds. Beyond the 18th lies a homely pond, into which an elevated storm pipe spews (waste?) water. And the smell . . . . The brackish Goose Creek that lends its name to the course is often reduced to a narrow, stagnant tributary emitting a sewage-like odor. When I played, several of the ponds had algea problems, which contributed to the unhealthy odor that lingered over the place. At one point, my ball trickled into the margin of a pond, and I actually had to use my club to crack apart a black crust of dried algea to get at it. Perhaps the strangest thing of all is that the layout itself, with an abundance of dog legs winding left and right, is actually well thought out and challenging. For anyone without any aesthetic sense (or sense of smell), this could provide an enjoyable round. If they didn't charge nearly $50 to play it!
