Six rounds, $49: Columbia’s 107.5 The Game offers Midlands golf deal

If you live and play golf in South Carolina’s Midlands, or are just visiting the area and looking for places to play, then an offer by local radio station WNKT-FM, aka 107.5 The Game, is a sweetheart of a deal that’s well worth considering.

The station that broadcasts University of South Carolina football, basketball and baseball games is offering (until they run out) the Golf Clubhouse Card, which enables golfers to play 18 holes with cart at each of six Midlands courses – Timberlake Country Club, The Club at Rawls Creek, Indian River Golf Club, Calhoun Country Club, and both Cheraw and Hickory Knob State Park golf courses – all for one payment of $49. Rounds must be played by Dec. 31.

Timberlake, located near Chapin, offers a Willard Byrd design situated near the shores of Lake Murray with rolling terrain and water in play on seven holes. Rawls Creek in Irmo on Lake Murray Boulevard was built in the 1970s and renovated in 2006 with new Mini-Verde Bermuda greens, and features dramatic elevation changes. Indian River, in West Columbia near the Columbia Airport, also has undergone renovation, with updated Tif Eagle greens and major tree removal opening up the Scottish-style course’s vistas.

Calhoun Country Club in St. Matthews was built in 1959 by architect Ellis Maples, a protégé of Donald Ross, and features rolling hills and tree-lined fairways. South Carolina’s two state park courses, near Cheraw and McCormick, are both designed by Greenville resident Tom Jackson; Cheraw is one of 40 courses nationally to earn Golf Digest’s “Super Value” designation, and Hickory Knob plays along the shore of Lake Thurmond on the S.C.-Georgia border.
