Sweetbriar is a great little course, in that it has a bit of everything for everyone.
There's quite a few courses out this way, and most of them are nicely maintained, but Sweetbriar truly has some fantastic views and designs. They have 3 courses- the Sweetbriar 18, the Original Legacy 9, and the newly added Legacy 9. Each course is set up differently- the Sweetbriar course is more your sprawling green hills, whereas the legacy 9's have a more woodland appeal to them, with wetlands.
Rates are very fair; between $30-40 for the Sweetbriar, and about $50 for the Legacy 9's. They are close to 90 and the turnpike, and the Legacy restaurant onsite can make it hectic at times. I generally go at first open (6am) when I want to concentrate and work on my game; their later hours are great as well, and my wife likes tagging along, so we usually go with her sister and her husband. Both girls are still learning but the course are friendly enough for her to tackle, and still challenging enough to keep me on my toes. The Legacy tends to be a more challenging course, and is my favorite, hands down.
Sunset specials during the week are a great deal, and it's usually very low key, so no one is breathing down our neck, and the girls can take as long as they need. When we're done, we go over to legacy's patio and have a veer and dinner. Staff is always friendly, service is prompt, and the courses are always in tip top shape. .
