Great greens

Greens nearly perfect condition. Greens can be challenging with lots of contour on the surfaces.ŕ A lot of work has been done to improve course conditions and it is showing. This course is a real value and has a nice layout for any skill level golfer.

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.

Great Course

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.

Nice Track

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?

Fall Golf

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.
