Vintage Nine

Opened in 2000, the Vintage nine was the back nine of our original 18 holes. Now it plays as the longest of the three nines. Elevation changes come into play most dramatically on Vintage No. 4. On eight of the nine holes, there is a downhill or uphill shot of at least 30 feet. This makes the golfer think just a little bit more on each shot. Vintage is arguably the most breathtaking of the three nines at Mount Vintage. 

From 2000 to 2004, the Vintage nine played as the back nine for the LPGA Asahi Ryokuken International Championship. Vintage’s accolades include “Top 30 Courses you can play in South Carolina” in 2008 and 2010 by the South Carolina Golf Course Rating Panel as well as “Number One Course in the Midlands Region for South Carolina” in 2009 and 2011. 

The Pavilion Lake area on Vintage is the signature of Mount Vintage Plantation. Holes 5, 6, and 7 -- a par 4, par 3, and par 5 -- all surround Pavilion Lake. With challenging shots and dramatic views, the Pavilion Lake area has been called the “Amen Corner” of Mount Vintage. Golfers coming off the Vintage nine will leave with a feeling of awe and respect for the nine holes of golf they just played.

Chester Nine

Opened in 2000, the Chester nine was the front nine of our original 18 holes. Now it plays as the highest rated of our three nines. The Chester nine features rolling fairways, well-guarded greens, and putting surfaces that would make the even the best putter tremble. With five different teeing grounds to choose from, it can be enjoyed by any skill level. 

From 2000 to 2004, the Chester nine played as the front nine for the LPGA Asahi Ryokuken International Championship. Chester has earned such accolades as “Top 30 Courses you can play in South Carolina” in 2008 and 2010 by the South Carolina Golf Course Rating Panel as well as “Number One Course in the Midlands Region for South Carolina” in 2009 and 2011. 

When one plays the Chester nine, you can’t help but be taken aback by the beauty of the elevation changes and sheer design of the layout. Behind the beauty of Chester lies some teeth. The first five holes can offer a challenge to even the best golfer, but the second half can be quite rewarding. With the sixth hole likened to Augusta National and holes seven, eight, and nine offering scenic views, one can come off Chester wanting to go right back out and play it again.

Independent Nine

Opened in 2008, the Independent nine was the third nine to be added to Mount Vintage Golf Club. While it maintains some of the characteristics of the original 18 holes, it’s unique enough to be an “Independent” nine of its own. With long sweeping fairways and water coming into play on eight of the nine holes, one can see why the Independent nine could be called fun to play. With plenty of risk/reward features throughout the layout, it can make the nine very opportunistic but also hazardous to play each time around. 

Since 2009, the Independent nine has played as one of the nines for the Annual Carolinas/Georgia Junior Golf Championship. It’s received accolades such as “Top 30 Courses you can play in South Carolina” in 2008 and 2010 by the South Carolina Golf Course Rating Panel as well as “Number One Course in the Midlands Region for South Carolina” in 2009 and 2011. 

In 2011, the eighth hole was tabbed as one of PGA.com’s South Carolina Dream 18: Hidden Gems. This accomplishment compared the eighth hole to other courses such as Kiawah Island in Charleston and Harbor Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. With stacked stone and a waterfall flowing from the back tee all the way to the green, one must stop and take in picturesque 8th hole on Independent. The ninth hole is equally as scenic but presents a very demanding finish. The long par 5 culminates with an uphill second and third shot to a heavily guarded, very undulating green that features front tiers and back tiers offset by a four-foot ridge. Golfers must ensure they have their distance dialed in on the uphill approach, or they could end up putting it off the front. When you finish the Independent nine at Mount Vintage, you leave wanting another shot.
