Greens still coming back from aeration but roll well, about 80% there.

Great layout - hidden gem

Hidden gem that if it it wasn't within shouting distance of Pinehurst, could charge double what they do now. Very challenging, excellent condition except greens had been punched about 20 days prior and were still a bit bumpy.

Will definitely come back and recommend to others.

Quail Ridge 7th round

Greens are improving as plugs set in. Ball still rolls fast but direction effected by holes. Still green undulation makes for a challenge. Fairways and tee boxes are well watered and prepared for play. As always the layout is interesting and challenging. Weather, very hot but this course leaves coolers of bottled water, iced and refreshing. One of my favorite courses.

Quail Ridge 6th time

Course well kept, dry in areas but not brown spots save for the greens which were recently plugged. Greens were sandy and provided some bumps as balls ran. Still and all a great round of golf but for the purest the greens conditions are the detriment. Staff was friendly and welcoming as always. Arrived early to use driving range. Encouraged to do so and jump on whenever. Excellent pace of play made for 3 hour time.

Quail Ridge 5th time

As always a great course to play, except that greens were p;lugged fairly recently and were dry, sandy. Still fast, undulating and challenging. Pace was good on front 9 with group of 4 in front. OK by me to slow my pace down. Passed them on the 10th hole - pace sped up - round in 3 hours. The course lay out makes this challenging no matter what you expect. Great views and friendly staff.

Normally a 5 star

Fairways and greens had been very recently aerated. Lot's of sand on the greens and very bumpy. No mention of the aeration on Golf Now and the rates were way too high for an almost unplayable course.

Course is usually in very good condition but I wouldn't play it for at least another week, probably two.

Good value

I was told that 4 years ago this course was horrible. But under the new management it is so much fun. The greens are quick, and there are some extreme slopes, but overall the course is fair and a blast to play

Course is in great shape

Tee Boxes, Fairways, Greens, and Sand Traps were in great shape. Check in was easy, and went straight to the 1st tee box. The cost during the week was fair. I would play this course again. It's only a short drive down Hwy 1 from the Triangle, that I would say is worth the travel. Golfers are always looking for hidden gems. I would say this course is one. After the round you can go into Sanford and get a great pizza , beer & Tasty desert @ La Dolce Vita Pizzeria.
