Great track

Took the trip from Charlotte (45min) to check this place out. Although relatively short from the tips, there are lots of dog legs and elevation changes to keep things interesting. I think I hit driver less than a half dozen times. Greens are decently quick and complex, pins were challenging. They take course maintenance seriously here and it shows. Will definitely come back with critical course knowledge in hand.

Nice, well kept course

Fairways in good condition. Roughs were long. Sand traps had loose, deep sand, best in the area. Greens rolled true, held the approach shot, were moderately fast. Pin positions were challenging.

A Fun and Challenging Round

The dry conditions made for great runout on ground shots but also made the challenging greens all the more exacting. Several greens with false fronts call for distance control but also reward you by running true. This is a course that makes up for length with doglegs hazards, and elevation changes. You won't find a better round for the dollar here in Cleveland County!

Great greens and clubhouse

Fun course with great greens and an awesome clubhouse. One of the best clubhouses I’ve been in. The only thing I would change about the course is the tee boxes. The tips are around 6,500 and the next tee box is like 5,900. This is just me trying to find a flaw. Definitely a course I’d play again!

Really Nice course

Greens rolled true and the fairways were nice as well. Length of the grass on the fairways were great. Front nine was a good set up not greatly challenging but the elevation changes on the back nine made up for the unique experience. Would definitely play again.

Strange 8 Mile Course Policy

My son and I played the front nine which was in perfect condition (greens, fairways and cart paths). The weather had clouds and some rumbling of thunder probably 10 miles to the north. We played two holes on the back nine (rough cartpaths) and two shots on hole number 12. We saw dark clouds in the northeast and rumbling in the distance but there was no rain. A pro shop assistant then rode towards us to tell us we must return to the clubhouse as lightning was seen within 8 miles (How Ridiculous is 8 Miles). When we returned to the clubhouse we were offered to wait for an indefinite time or obtain a nine hole raincheck. I chose the raincheck and am grateful. However, I must say that in over 40 years of playing golf I have never been required to stop play (And, I have played in torrential rainstorms). Especially strange is that no lightening was visible nor did the weather change from a partly sunny day.

Great Course

Recently aerated and sanded greens notwithstanding the course was in great shape for the heat of the summer. Challenging pin placements and green conditions made for higher scoring than usual, nevertheless, this was a very good round of golf on a nice course at a very reasonable price.
