Golf Course Information
Verdae Greens Golf Club is celebrating its 20 year anniversary as: The Preserve at Verdae
After investing $3 million to create an updated, eco-friendly golf course from the Willard Byrd-designed, 18-hole, par 72 championship course, The Embassy Suites Greenville Golf Resort & Conference Center has changed the golf course's name from Verdae Greens to The Preserve at Verdae.
We chose to re-name the course The Preserve at Verdae to reflect our commitment to preserving the balance between nature and golf, said Joe Morrissey, John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts Senior Vice President Operations. With this renovation, we are reducing our carbon footprint by planting more natural grasses and landscaping, and preserving and expanding the existing habitats for local wildlife and birds.
The Preserve at Verdae is now the only course within 60 miles of Greenville that features drought-resistant Mini Verde Bermuda grass, a strain which requires fewer pesticides and fertilizer to stay green throughout hot summers and cool winters. These greens putt beautifully allowing for a truer consistent roll of the golf ball. The Preserve at Verdaes tour quality practice facility features a multi-level tee box, separate chipping and practice bunker area, and a large practice putting green.
