Not as bad as most reviews.

Ok for the money. A cheaper priced course so expectations should nit run as high as some other tracks. You kinda get what you pay for Friendly staff. Fairly quick round because of light play.

Course not up to par.

To be a country club, course was more of a bogey than par. Tee boxes had not been cut and greens were only in OK shape

Not worth the effort

Carolina Shores was in deplorable condition. The course has been let go. The rough was US Open bermuda and had not been cut in a long time. The cart paths were impassable with holes, roots, and overgrowth. And the greens were patchy at best, with many bare spots. Use your golf money elsewhere.

Stay in the fairway

You must stay in the fairway. It was difficult to get out of the rough. The greens were not in very good shape. They require a level of care that was mot provided. The staff was great. But that did not overcome the deficiencies.

avoid this place

The course is in terrible condition. If you play here for free you are being overcharged and due a refund. The only "maintenance " being done is the mower cutting the fairway weeds lower than the first cut and rough weeds. There is no grass; it's 100% weeds, including the tee boxes. You cannot tee your ball up high enough to avoid them, and therefore teeing it up on the par 3s is impossible unless you find a patch where the weeds have died. There is no sand on the carts because filling in your divots would be considered a course renovation. The bunkers are dirt/mud holes. Membership should be ashamed.

Course looks like they’re getting ready to close it. There is minimal to no maintenance. Fairways are like the rough area and the rough isn’t even attended to.

Ok for the price

Not going to beat this course up. Greens are not good and the paths are rough, but if you want to get out and hit the ball a little, this course is fine. You get what you are willing to pay. Enjoyed a nice round with a visitor from PA.

WORST COURSE EVER

I and some family were down for vacation and decided to play this course. Man at front desk was very friendly. Man responsible for carts was not. He is the guy wearing earrings. He was very rude and disrespectful to us. Course was in the worst shape I have ever observed out of all the courses I have golfed. I would not recommend this course to anyone! I also told people at our condos in Ocean Isle about this course and advised them to stay away from it due to the unfriendly staff and poor playing conditions that greens keepers should be responsible for.

Very Poorly Maintained

Other than the very friendly staff, the course condition was inexcusably horrible. Fairways were like long rough, tee boxes were not mowed, traps were full of weeds, and their was lettle course maintenance in general.
