Palmetto Traverse Putting Course

Opened August 2019, the Palmetto Traverse putting course is a 35,000 square foot green designed for wild fun, with putts as long as 260 feet possible and over some of the most varied terrain you will ever see in a putting surface. The design is based off the Himalayas putting course at St. Andrews, and designed by golf course architect and Donald Ross restoration specialist Kris Spence.

The complex — which was constructed using USGA sub-surface drainage and rootzone, and topped with a TifEagle Ultradwarf surface — also includes a pair of small bunkers within the surface area, and a small central grassy island with a sitting area and landscaping. The internal contours include plateaus, terraces, swales, rolls, valleys, spines and slopes that will provide abundant variety and challenging fun for players of all abilities – from beginners to the most seasoned golfers.
