When the original 10 holes of the Clyde Johnston/Fuzzy Zoeller-designed Hollow Creek course at The Reserve Club opened for play in 2007 at the Woodside community in Aiken, S.C., it was expected that the remaining eight holes would come forth in a year or two as residential homesites came to market along those holes. 
 
Although lean economic times beginning in 2008 put a hold on those plans, the Reserve Club is now moving along with the completion of the Hollow Creek course, with Clyde Johnston again at the helm.
 
Johnston worked with design consultant and former Masters champion Fuzzy Zoeller on the original 18-hole design. Additionally, two of the eight holes that needed completing were built in 2017, leaving just six holes now to complete the golf course.
 
The six new holes will wrap around the Hollow Creek Land Preservation, 110 acres of natural woodland and wetland area established by The Reserve Club to ensure the safeguard of indigenous wildlife and the pristine condition of local land. 
 
Construction work has been contracted to Wadsworth Golf Construction, the same company that built the original 10 holes, and widely regarded as one of the premier course builders in America.
While some modifications are expected on one of the existing 12 holes, all will remain open while construction progresses on the finishing six. The full 18-hole course is expected to host a soft opening in the fall of 2019. 
 
The par 71, 6,950-yard Johnston/Zoeller design will be the second golf course at The Reserve Club at Woodside, and will join with the Nicklaus Design course to create one of the premier golf communities in the country.
 
A former president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, Johnston is known for designing playable courses that place a premium on aesthetics, design balance and captivating shot values.
