Greenville Country Club’s Chanticleer course typically takes top-billing when looking at a list of the best in South Carolina, but the Riverside has one of the most compelling stories, at least in terms of architectural lineage.

The original design comes from Donald Ross, who created the layout by creating a design on a topographical map. The actual construction of the course was directed by William Langford, who presumably ensured Ross’s shaping intentions by leaving Theodore Moreau (and his dramatic shaping tendencies) at home.

It was an example of Ross working with a small piece of property, but the course eventually acquired property on the other side of the Reedy River. George Cobb arrived during the early ‘60s and added seven new holes on the parcel.

Finally, during the early years of the new millennium, the club decided to change directions entirely. Brian Silva was hired to redesign the Riverside in a style more befitting of Seth Raynor. It seems that the founders could have made the journey to the current course more efficient by simply having Langford create the original design, and let Moreau do his signature shaping!
