Detailed description

The Wellman Golf Club, is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Johnsonville, South Carolina.

The Wellman Club opened for play in 1970. The course was designed by Ellis Maples and Ed Seay. This 7,018-yard track features lush Bermuda fairways and well-trapped greens, with water on 9 holes.

At Wellman, Maples and Seay took their trademark length and bunkering, and mixed in extensive greenside bunkering. Using mounds in the fairways and elevated greens, the architect created high lips that can be a mental hurdle.

The 554-yard, Par-5 #11 is a fine example of their creative work. After a slightly downhill drive, a pond forms the rest of the hole on the left side. Water and a narrow landing area require most players to hit a shorter, more accurate drive. The green, sloped back to front, features a large pot bunker on the left and sand on the right.

The Wellman Golf Club closed for after the owning company went bankrupt in November 2010.
