Crow Creek Golf Club a great place to get away and play

Crow Creek Golf Club is the average golfers’ type course. Wide open fairways, beautiful scenery, quite, and away from the world.

It’s located just far enough north to make you feel like you’ve driven to the country. You’re cell phone won’t work on some holes, and it simply feels like you’ve gotten away from it all. Throw in the occasional sand trap, waste bunker, island green style par 3 and you’ve got a course that’s fun and enjoyable.

I played the course with Allen Smothers, a local sports broadcaster and Bryan Thomas, the course pro. We were joined midway through our round by Richard Brunette, a NMB Chief faithful and all around fun guy.

Bryan, of course, hit all the fairways and greens. Allen enjoyed himself so much that he didn’t throw his clubs a single time. I hit a ball, and if it went in the woods, pulled out another one and hit another one, not even really keeping score, even though my partners kept it for me. Richard just came out for a good day away, and seemed to get what he came for.

Richard plays the course quite frequently and when asked why he likes Crow Creek so much responded that the maintenance and conditions of the course were primary factors. I can understand why, the course was in fantastic shape and looked well cared for.

Allen really liked the wide open space, and the fact that there were not a lot of places you could get in trouble. When the comment was made, Bryan reminded him of the Caw-Caw River that runs right through the course and ate several of Allen’s balls and a few of mine as well.

Ask the course pro what he likes best about his course and you are sure to get a long list of positives, but when pinned down to just his favorite hole, Bryan was quick to offer up No. 18. “It’s a great par 5, and normally you can get there in two and have a chance for eagle,” he said.  Walking off the course with an eagle on the last hole would put a smile on any golfers face.

The course opened in 2000 and was designed by Rick Robbins. The signature hole is No. 8, a par 3 that features the owner Jerry McLamb’s hunting cabin that was located on the property long before development came along. Bryan Thomas is the head pro, and Joe Jamison is the superintendent. The greens are L93 Bent and the course is 18 holes, par 72, 7100 yards from the back tees. The course hosts many tournaments, including Hooters Tour Summer/Winter events and The World Am.

Playing Crow Creek will allow you to get away, relax and enjoy the course. It’s good for the average golfer, the talented golfer, or the beginner. It’s inexpensive, and in good shape. Certainly worth the short drive north.
