Very nice course.
Great layout. good variety of holes. All challenging.
Played 5 times here in the last 3 months. Course conditions are very good. Clean and covid comfortable conditions around club house.
The Challenge is a WELCOME "challenge"
Course is very well taken care of. Fairways are good. Teeboxes appeared to be re-seeded but were more than acceptable. Pace of play was good. Layout is nice, Whites can play short, I often play the Blues for a change-up. Greens are always in great shape. Large practice green and hitting net on your way to the 1st tee are a BONUS. Elevation changes are plentiful without all the "blind shots". A MUST play.
Too many putts!
I played with a couple of my co-workers, and we chose this course because it was in a convenient "mid-way" location, so none of us had to drive too far.
We were teamed up with a single for the day.
The course was in good shape for November. Grass on the fairways and tee boxes was surprisingly green and full.
The layout of the course is decent, but not spectacular. While not extremely narrow, you can find yourself in trouble if your tee shots are errant. Not much water in play, but some very well placed bunkers can catch you.
Greens looked good, but they didn't seem to be consistent with respect to speed. While most were quite fast, there were a couple that were much slower. My entire group found them very difficult to read.
Bunkers were difficult to play from, as the sand was thick, heavy, brown sand, and attempting to play a "normal" sand shot was not practical. I guess we are spoiled by playing courses near the coast where they use a fluffy white sand.
Regardless of how poorly I scored, the course was definitely in great shape for November, and we had a good time.
I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a place to play in the area.
The challenge is just that, a challenge. Great for all skill levels. There are a number of holes where a good tee shot is a must. The greens are in really good shape.
Love this course
This course is about as good as you can find for the price. Course is in excellent shape and there are actually rakes in the bunkers!
Played on empty course after it had been raining most of the day. Good experience. Plenty of well-designed and great looking holes. Gets a little cramped in spots so couldn’t help thinking it probably gets really slow when crowded., but what place doesn’t?
Stopped here on our way South. Course was in great condition. Greens rolled fast and true. Tees and fairways were very nice. Friendly staff. Starter was extremely helpful. Loved the layout. Pace of play was excellent. We will definitely stop here again. I would highly recommend this course.
The layout of the course is “Challenging but Doable”. Great round of golf with a couple of friends. Well worth the 44 minute drive from Raleigh.
Great play for the money
First time playing here and I was impressed. The staff was very friendly and the course was enjoyable. I will definitely play it again. It is right off of I-40, so it was easy to get to.
