Cobblestone Park is home to the University of South Carolina’s men’s and women’s golf teams.
The courses are best appreciated by a personal visit. Resting on 240-acres of rolling hills, there are wide landing areas and strategically placed bunkers are lined with majestic oaks and pines. The natural elevation provides some of the highest points in Richland County, offering panoramic views. By design, the course co-exists with the environment making the serenity of nature present throughout. The large undulating Tift Eagle Bermuda greens are consistently smooth and fast and are well-protected by bunkers and collection areas. Our often photographed signature hole is a 454-yard par 4. The tee shot yields a 60-foot elevation change down to the landing area, which doglegs right, then back up the hill to the green.
Cobblestone Park is proud to have one of the largest private golf practice facilities in the South. The 30-acre facility offers players an enormous driving range and a large teeing area where there’s always ample room for practice. The range has eleven greens with pin placements. Members can also enjoy our pitching green, practice sand bunker and 14,000 square-foot practice putting green. Our instructional center features computerized video lessons, demo clubs, club-fitting systems to personalize your equipment and a complete club repair operation (re-gripping, re-shafting, and loft & lie adjustments). Our very experienced instructional staff can help you straighten out your slice or help you play to your strengths with the accurate information provided by our high-tech equipment. It will take strokes off your game in no time! Members can utilize the Instructional Center with individual lessons or simply enjoy the practice range.
The main clubhouse is a must-see with its panoramic view of our #18 fairway. The current facility will be replaced by a grand 25,000 square foot Clubhouse, designed to be both impressive and inviting. Home to the Golf Shop, members have the opportunity to purchase the latest in equipment and merchandise. Members come together in a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a meal, socialize and watch sporting events on one of six television sets. In the late afternoons many members retire to the upstairs deck overlooking the course for a drink.
The brand new, $10 Million Amenity Center is the new gathering spot for families and friends in the community. Our tennis complex features six lighted courts, including four HarTru courts. The gymnasium, with exposed wooden beams, is perfect for both indoor sports and events. The fitness facility boats state-of-the-art equipment, as well as two treatment rooms for massages and facials. Our pool pavilion is comprised of a resort-style pool, splash area for children and a casual grill for food and drinks. The Amenity Center also offers a multi-use sports filed, playground area for toddlers, and area for outdoor basketball and volleyball.
Cobblestone Park members enjoy many social activities together. The Club offers numerous camps, swim lessons and social functions throughout the year designed for both families and adults. The entire family can participate and enjoy various family night dinners, pool-side bingo, casino nights, holiday events, adult/junior golf tournaments and activities.
