I have been a member of Old South for three years. The conditions are always outstanding compared to other courses in our area. I play 100+ rounds a year and most rounds are on other courses locally so I have some direct knowledge of this. The course is always challenging even for my guests who are occasionally plus handicaps. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable, and the membership is talented enough that the longest rounds are never more than 4:15, with many being in the three hour range for a twosome. The layout is generally a shot placement style but also encourages being aggressive at times. The greens can be tricky but not punishing. Approach shots require some greens knowledge so most of my guests fare much better the second time they play. I am lucky to be a member!

Don't bring a driver, it will get you into trouble and you won't need it. The rough is very thick, but not too deep. You will probably score well the second time you play it, but not the first.
