Carolina Trace lake

Purse well laid out. Wide fairways. Greens a little small. Originally set for Creek course but 3 inches of rain day before closed the Creek course but pro switched me to Lake. A number of elevated tees for small par 3 greens—challenging!

Good Course

Played Sunday Morning. Excellent day for golf. Over cast and cool. Very few golfers on the course.

Overall, the course is a very good layout. The greens were in very good shape. The rest of the course could use some work. For $80, things could be a bit nicer. Tee boxes and fairways could use some attention.

Also, the restaurant being closed on Sunday is a bit odd. One would think on the weekends they would be fully operational.

My group felt our experience on the Lakes course was better.

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
