The Preserve at Verdae sprawls across a lush landscape of rolling hills and meadows covered with beautiful Carolina forests. Formerly known as Verdae Greens, the golf course was completely revamped but one of the primary goals of the renovation was to find harmony between golf and nature. The carefully reworked course does just that, blending seamlessly into its scenic surroundings. Rambling brooks wander across the layout and provide water hazards on a few holes. The wind is also a major factor on this golf course. The breezes can be either light and refreshing or strong and blustery, making proper club selection even more important. The most photographed hole on the golf course is the par-3 second. If you're lucky enough to come when the azaleas are blooming, this hole offers a breathtaking setting.

The course has no water drainage. They change the name to preserve to just let everything grow up around the course not worth the money.

This was my second time at The Preserve and I really enjoyed coming back. It’s a challenge but rewards keeping the ball in the fairway. The greens are consistent all the way around. Traps in great shape in feb!! Check it out.

Today was the best the weather was to be for the next 10 days so there were plenty of people wanting to play golf, but it was obvious they over sold their booking for the day. It took 3 1/2 hrs to play 9 holes. There was no marshals to speed up the slow players. We paid for 18, but asked for a rain check after 9 holes. We got our rain check and will look forward to going back under different conditions.

Also don’t ever try to play with just 3 people. They always add a 4th even if it means delaying your tee time.

Very tough course. I am a 8 handicap, and this course is extremely challenging, but one of the prettiest courses in Greenville.

The staff isn’t exactly friendly from my encounters, my knock is always the staff, not the course. I have friends and family who are members at private such as, thornblade and Greenville Country Club. I will say Verdae is the snobbiest, I get the 12-15 dollar golf now deals so it’s a no brainer. I would never pay full price 100% because of the staff. I have encounter several nice people that work there, but equal number of employees who don’t make my time enjoyable. But Dallas the cart Woman is awesome, Keith up front grows on you. And Kirby the older gentlemen who sends people off is a class act.

Once again great challenging course
