Nicest greens in the Charlotte/Gastonia area

These greens are amazing. Fairways were great even after a monsoon the previous day. Love this course

Best greens

Easy play. Not necessarily Easy on difficulty, just nice easy flow. Short between holes. Can play under 4hours. Best greens around. Watch out for lots of junior golfers after school. Need to repair one par4 on front none that has been modified to par3 temporarily.

Very nice course & staff, BUT.......

Course is very nice, excellent greens, staff is great. BUT even with 90 degree cart rule on most holes TOO MUCH WALKING especially for older players. Exit fairway signs sometimes 60-80 even 100 yards from greens. Totally understand protecting the course but for older or physically limited players itll be a challenge.

Busy course on the weekend

Fairways and roughs were in winter conditions. Sand traps much improved. Greens held the approach shot, rolled true, were medium speed. It was a nice winter day, so many people were on the course.

Outstanding

This time of year with dead bermuda fairways and tee boxes you go where the greens are good. This course has near perfect bermuda greens that r covered at night. These greens r FAST but soft. Need I say more. Great layout.

Great Greens!

This course knows how to maintain greens. Huge, super fast, receptive greens that are as close to perfect as u can get. A beach type bermuda that putts true. The front side has a great layout while the back is not quite as interesting as front but still good. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

Great rainy day

Went out Saturday to check it out and it is a wonderful course. It’s been raining here off/on for weeks. The course held up nicely and the greens were perfect.

Always enjoy

Have played here 4-5 times and enjoy it. Course is in pretty good shape, though the ball marks on the greens were a little heavy this time. But a course can't make players fix them. Some really challenging hole, at least for me and the wife. Give it a try .

Fantastic course

The only part I don’t love is the range is too short for driver and 3 wood. The course is always in great shape, especially when compared to others in the area. Very good for the price.
