Facilities include an 18-hole championship golf course, clubhouse, practice green, driving range a pro shop and snack grill.
Hole 1 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Lady Lupin -- 373 yards, Par 4
Place the tee shot left of the fairway bunkers. Hit a short-to-middle iron to a green that slopes front to back.
Hole 2 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Chickasaw Plum -- 563 yards, Par 5
This tee shot should be right of the fairway bunker to get a good look at this par 5 hole. Go for the green or lay up into the bottom to a well-guarded green.
Hole 3 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Muscadine Grape -- 383 yards, Par 4
A well-placed tee shot left of the fairway bunkers will leave you with a short iron shot into a small green.
Hole 4 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Yellow Jessamine -- 404 yards, Par 4
Look for the pine tree in the right center of the fairway. A good tee shot left will leave you a short iron shot into the small, well-guarded green.
Hole 5 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Sweet Gum -- 177 yards, Par 3
Aim for the center of the green to get a birdie putt on this green that slopes from back to front.
Hole 6 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Southern Magnolia -- 419 yards, Par 4
Stay left of the fairway bunker and let the left to right slope of the fairway help the ball into the center. Use a mid-iron approach into a green that slopes front to back.
Hole 7 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Juniper -- 485 yards, Par 5
Put your tee shot into the left center of the fairway. Go for the green in two shots, or lay up into the left side of the approach for a good angle into a green that slopes back to front.
Hole 8 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Prickly Pear -- 206 yards, Par 3
If the wind is in your face use more club to get to the green. Stay away from the greenside bunker.
Hole 9 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Mountain Laurel -- 390 yards, Par 4
A well-placed tee shot will catch the slope in the fairway leaving you with a short iron in. The green slopes from right to left.
Hole 10 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Bald Cypress -- 435 yards, Par 4
Play to the top of the hill to get a good look at the green that slopes back to front. Do not challenge the fairway bunkers.
Hole 11 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Southern Red Cedar -- 555 yards, Par 5
A tee shot left of the oaks at the dog leg will put you in a position to go for the green. Laying up short of the fairway bunkers on the right will leave you a short iron shot into this large, elevated green.
Hole 13 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Bracken Fern -- 492 yards, Par 4
The signature hole at Cheraw State Park Golf Course is a demanding, dog leg left, par 4. Longer hitters can cut the dog leg with a risk reward tee shot. Average players should aim right center. This will leave a long second shot that plays over water into a well-guarded green with sand on the right and water on the left.
Hole 14 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Frog's Britches -- 164 yards, Par 3
This is a great par 3. Play to the center of this small C-shaped green.
Hole 15 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Sparkleberry -- 365 yards, Par 4
Hit a driver into a narrow landing area, or hit a three-wood or iron into a large landing area. Use a mid-iron for your second shot into a green that slopes away. Make sure to land short of the pin to get your ball close.
Hole 16 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Flowering Dogwood -- 418 yards, Par 4
Look away from the fairway bunkers on this tough dog leg right. Use the landing area left of center. This will leave you using a mid-to-long iron into a long, narrow green.
Hole 17 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Yellow Honeysuckle -- 160 yards, Par 3
This par 3 backs up to Lake Juniper. Prevailing winds blow back into your face, when teeing off. This green measures 40 yards from front to back. Look at the waves on the lake to determine the direction of the wind.
Hole 18 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
American Holly -- 513 yards, Par 5
This beautiful par 5 finishing hole is demanding off of the tee. Challenge the corner for a go at the green in two shots, or play to the center of the fairway. Your second shot should be left of the fairway bunkers leaving a short iron shot into a well-guarded, elevated green.
Hole 12 -- Cheraw State Park Golf Course
Longleaf Pine -- 426 yards, Par 4
Challenge the fairway bunkers on the left for a shorter second shot. Play safe to the right of the fairway bunker for a slightly longer second shot into a well-guarded, elevated green.
