Since it’s opening in 1965, CCL has made creating a strong sense of community in a relaxed environment its mission. With a newly renovated clubhouse, golf, tennis, swim, and dining options, CCL has so much to offer to every family in the Midlands.
Play began 1966 under Pro Emeritus Norman Flynn, who served the club for 35 years. Under Flynn’s leadership and with the influence of partners such as Charlie Rountree, Jr., CCL has flourished. Rountree is credited as the father of junior golf in SC. Under his leadership, CCL has played a crucial role in developing what is now one of the strongest junior golf programs in the country.
CCL has recently been awarded "Club of the Year" by the South Carolina Golf Association. The club has hosted several SCGA and USGA events, and is consistently ranked among the top courses in the Midlands. CCL also offers a full service driving range, including a short game practice facility, as well as two practice putting greens. Chris Devane is the course superintendent. In addition to keeping the facilities in great shape, Devane and his staff are overseeing two major projects: (1) removal of a number of shade trees from around the course to allow for better sunlight, and (2) a complete repaving of the cart paths in order to facilitate a smoother ride.
SWIM & TENNIS
The swim and tennis facilities of CCL are notable amenities for CCL. The Olympic size pool has undergone several renovations and upgrades in recent years. The facility is in high demand. The weekly schedule includes a variety of team activities and exercise programs.

He has been recognized as the SC Tennis Coach of the Year as well as the SE Coach of the Year. He also proudly serves on the Lexington Area Tennis Association Board.
Chef John Larson and Stephanie Mathias are in charge of CCL’s entire food and beverage operation. For members, this includes everything from the daily grill options to specialty dinners and club events.
CCL has become a popular place for weddings and banquets. The 3700 square foot banquet room can be used in its entirety or divided into three separate rooms. For groups of twenty to four hundred, CCL offers a beautiful venue for special events. The dining rooms and extensive patio decks overlook the picturesque golf course greens and fairways. The cuisine can be tailored to your requests, and served as a traditional plated dinner, a more casual buffet, or a cocktail reception. The focus is always on fine food and service.
