Abbeville

Played Abbeville this morning to practice for their 2 man scramble this weekend. I was very impressed with the course, especially their greens. They were average speed, but extremely firm. Anyone who couldn’t spin the ball would hit the green and bounce/roll of the back. Buddy in my group eventually figured out to stop aiming for the center and play it short and let it roll onto the green. They had a few bare/thin areas in the fairways, but overall they were in pretty good shape. I’m not saying they’re a top course in the state, but I was pleasantly surprised with the condition of the course. Pace of play was good too. Just thought I’d share for anyone who hasn’t played there recently.

Last I played there was 15’ and if I’m not mistaken it closed down after that. My parents live out that way and we used to play it a lot back in the day. Glad to hear it’s open again.

Yea the two man tomorrow should have a good turnout. Last yr it was a 3 man they dropped it to two man this yr. Course is in really good shape. You're right, you can aim at the center of the green or pins.
Play it for a bounce or two and you should be fine. Below the hole is best for scoring as most greens slope from back to front. Goodluck tomorrow

They re-did the greens not long ago. That is why they are so firm.

I’d say that’s good advise for 98% of all golf courses…

Yes, but these greens aren’t just firm like a normal new green is. They’re really hard. So hard that you don’t leave a ballmark no matter how high you hit it into the green. I talked to one guy who said they had gotten a pretty good bit of rain the last two afternoons. I don’t know what they did, but the greens don’t play like a normal new green. Could be from a lot of rolling I guess. Maybe it’s the grass they’re using. They said they’re paspalum. If they ever got those things really fast, it’d be damn hard to score on those greens.

They're running about as fast as they would run. Its a decent size tournament and payout. The pin locations tomorrow wont be as bad as they will be be Sunday. Hope the wind doesnt blow Sunday cause it'll be hard to score as it should be. Play good tomorrow and yall will be fine.
Look its Abbeville its not Oakbourne. They arent trying to run the greens so fast that no one wants to play there. Its newer greens, they're firm if you're a low handicapper you can still ck wedges after the initial bounce. Make the adjustment drink some beers hit up Dupuys.
Best of luck the course is in as good of shape as its been in over a decade
