Below are some golf questions that we are frequently asked here at Aberdeen Country Club. If you do not see your question or answer below, please contact us here.
Are you a public course?
What is meant by a Links-style course?
Originally in Scotland a course was designed to take you out nine holes and bring you back nine holes. Even the greens were connected. Not as many trees were incorporated to outline the course. Instead, golfers have to deal with lots of bunkers and water hazards. At Aberdeen, the courses aren’t linked, but all three nines bring you back to the Clubhouse area.
Why can’t we have a true links course in this area of South Carolina?
It would be very difficult to have an actual links course in our South Carolina climate with its high humidity and high rainfall, which keeps the ground moist. The land gets saturated, so you can’t really have greens that you can roll the ball onto. Also, a true links wouldn’t be tree lined. In the summertime, we appreciate tree lining for the much-needed shade it provides. And if we didn’t have trees, we would have to deal with a wind factor, which would make the ball roll, making fairways too difficult to play.
What type of grass do you have?
Do you have lockers?
We have restrooms, and the men’s room provides a shower.
Do you have a practice area?
Yes, we have a large practice area, which includes a full driving range, a large putting green with several holes for practice, and a chipping green, which includes a sand trap for practicing getting out of trouble when you’re out on the course.
Do you offer lessons?
We give lessons upon request. Contact our Pro Shop and we will design lessons for you based on your skill level.
