The Walker Course is a wonderful spot to tee it up. Very close to the Clemson campus on the front, but also steps away from the lake on the back, so you get two completely different vibes here. #12 could make an argument as best par 3 in upstate SC. 150ish or less yards to a very downhill green that's deep but narrow. Hard slope off the left, creek on the right. Just a quiet, natural hole tucked in the woods that's hard to not fall in love with. There's no hole here that's weak, but I've always thought it's ironic it's called the Walker when walking it would be a very tall task. I feel like anyone trying to walk it would lose all their breath going from 16 tee to 16 fairway. If it was more negotiable on foot, I'd cite it as one of the top 10 college courses in the USA.
