Best Golf Courses Near Spartanburg, SC
Spartanburg, home to Wofford College, is a college town in the Blue Ridge Mountains of upstate South Carolina. Though the area surrounding Spartanburg played a role in the Revolutionary War—battlefields and old plantations are notable attractions—nowadays it is known for BMW Plant Spartanburg, where BMW cars are assembled, and the BMW Driving School, a driving course where adults and teenagers can get experience handling “The Ultimate Driving Machine” in all sorts of conditions. Meanwhile, Spartanburg’s golf courses welcome tee times from drivers of the little white ball. Your best bets for discounted tee times are Palmetto Hills Golf Club, a tree-lined course where you’ll encounter big elevation changes from tee to green, and Village Greens Golf Club, where mountain vistas will wow you in nearby Gramling. Creek Golf Club has its own history—the layout rambles over land that formerly served as a U.S. Army Training base and held many German POWs during World War II. River Falls Plantation Golf Club in Duncan features holes that skirt the South Tyger River. But wait. Golf doesn’t necessarily end after your round on these courses.
