Sigbage

Your course is a little confusing to follow not enough signs on the course at the right place do you know where the next hole is. Please make signs larger and more visible so it is very easy for a newcomer to stay on the right course. Got confused twice because the signage was confusing.Other than that I very much enjoyed play in the course. Beautiful layout and beautiful surroundings. I will come back and play it again as often as possible.

Great course greens were rolling around a 11 the only thing that was just okay was the fairways but they were good enough to hit good shots. They aren’t ready yet because it’s there spring brown ruff and some of the fairways were green but absolutely a beautiful course and we played the other course the next better fairways and the greens were great. Mike the pro was very helpful and a nice guy gave us some tips on how to play the holes

I should have been informed that the course was closed. I was informed after I arrived that they informed you all at 8:30AM that they were covering the greens on the creek course..
I saw an email that you all were cancelling the tee time at 1:06pm but I had driven 65 miles to the course. Will I get my $20 coupon back?

Amazing course, challenging, fast greens, soft fluffy bunkers

Course was just outstanding. It’s a bit pricey but for me I think it was worth it as I had an absolute blast. Shot a 115 - how can I have fun when I didn’t play too well? Well because really the layout of the course is just fun. The course was designed to be difficult on some holes but after a difficult hole they immediately put a less challenging one after if you just got your butt handed to you lol.

Pros- amazing greens, beautiful bunkers, fairways are great for this time of year. No complaints on the course
Cons- just a little bit pricey.

Fun but challenging course

I’ve played the lake a few times for charity tournaments but never the creek. Course is very remote as you never see the clubhouse again after you start. Lots of hill and rolling through the neighbors but beautiful course.

Great Golf

Always enjoy playing both courses at Carolina Trace. The Creek is challenging, but rewards good shots. It was a nice fall day and the course was in good shape for late November. Highly recommended.

First time golfing at the Trace

This was are first time playing at Carolina Trace and overall had a great day of golf. The greens and fairways were in great shape.
We did find the layout to be somewhat confusing between the Creek and Lake courses as they were not clearly marked. I wish they would color coat the signs to each course to make it more distinguished as well as have better signage to the next tee box since you are driving through a neighborhood of homes.
There also seems to be “unethical golf practices” on this course. During our round a group of two skipped in front of without asking us if they could play thru, which now slowed our pace since we had to wait on them.
