Course Review and Comments
I've been traveling to this part of the world for some time and have never played Connestee Falls, and now I know why.
The course itself is OK. Its generally short, and most holes are big doglegs. Even one of the par 3's is arguably a dogleg left from the back tees. The greens were punched when I played, but actually still rolled alright. There is a lot of wildlife on the course, which made interesting.
However, even from the back tees, I found myself all day choosing between two options-- hit a driver or wood from the tee and pray, or hit 5 iron to keep it in play. On the front nine, only one par 4 wasn't a significant dogleg (and that one had a lake to keep you from hitting driver). On the front nine, the only hole I really liked was the downhill par 3 8th hole. The back nine was virtualy the same. The design itself is unimaginative and repetivive. But I can learn to deal with that.
What made this course so frustrating were the fellow players. What should have been a 3:30 round was close to five (and the course wasn't that full) because no one seemingly would let anyone play through, and there were no rangers in site to help keep play moving along.
If you are in this area, Cummings Cove, Glen Cannon and High Vista are all better options.

Fun mountain golf layout - plenty of elevation changes without a lot of the extreme up or down hill lies. Greens are immaculate and roll true. Beautiful course.
