Challenging Fun Course

I found this course to my liking. I only play a few times a year will definitely be returning to this course. The greens were in good shape. The fairways were okay with weeds growing in many of them. Most hole had a dog leg and need precision. The narrow fairways with trees on both sides and hills make it challenging but not impossible for a high handicap player. Not much on amenities but snacks and drinks are available in the club house.

Good Condition

The course was in good condition, the layout is good. There are two holes if you have never played this course you need to ride up and check out the blind second shots and 18 is a killer.

Nice little course

Played on July 4th with my son and grandsons and my 87 yr old dad

Nice mountain course. Small driving range but everything else was great. Greens were in good shape especially for this time of year.

Elliot in pro shop was extremely helpful. My only small complaint would be that there didn’t seem to be anyone in restaurant to get a dog or anything at the turn. Great value and worth the trip.

Tough Course And In Bad Shape

Played at Mountain Harbor the day before and was looking forward to playing this course with friends. Greeted by super friendly people and ready to swing ‘em.
When we got on the course and started playing, some of the greens were pretty rough as well as a couple of fairways. Compared to where we played the day before, it was like going from a Porsche to a Pinto.
I will say the difficulty level of the course for being my first time on it was was high. Course requires you to stick the ball pretty well on the greens - little room for error on some holes. Would be a great course if they can get greens situated and maybe rid some of the Poa Annua grass on fringe.

A little gem

Could not have enjoyed this course more. Used to playing flat Florida tracts. This is a pretty treasure, just watch out for those greens. Fast downhill and slower up than I thought. Had a great time.

Nice course and reasonable

Course was a nice place to get in 18. Course was reasonably priced and layout had rolling hills. Would recommend if other courses in the area were unavailable

Great place to play.

We had a great round of golf. Play was a little slow on the front due to league play. Back was wide open.

A Little Rough

Course was extremely dry and rough. Fairways had not filled in yet from winter, a lot of patchy areas. Greens were still in rough condition from aerating and sanding. Greens were also very hard and dry, Puts bounced all over the place and skipped on sand.

Good value, friendly staff

Good value, friendly staff, greens in good shape, some fairways need work, 2nd hole has a very narrow fairway, sloped to a big drop off. I enjoyed the round and would play again if I’m in the area.

Beautiful old course

This course is 50 years old with beautiful views of the mountains and Lake Chatuge. In the spring the dogwoods, mountain laurels and rhododendrons are in full bloom.
If you enjoy golf this is a must course to play. The fees are very reasonable. Staff is friendly and courteous.
