Fun Course

A well kept course. **Make sure to grab drinks and snacks before you start, the turn is not at the clubhouse and there is no halfway house.

Fun course to play, but a few greens have some issues

This southeastern NC course is located on the intercoastal waterway. Great layout, a mix of difficulty and some really good risk/reward holes made it a fun course to play. We were greeted as soon as we arrived, and the cart attendants and the counter person were personable and appreciative of our playing their course. The fairways and traps were in surprisingly good shape for the lack of rain that NC had in May. The greens, however, were another story. Many of them had some bare patches, and they were slower than most greens on similar courses in NC. It was sad that the greens were sub-par, because the rest of the experience was definitely above par. One suggestion to players - there is a halfway house at the turn that is not staffed, so prepare to subsist on bottled soft drinks at the turn. Still, was definitely worth the money, even with the greens issues.

Good course poor greens

The course is challenging and set up well. The greens were very poor. I would play here again. The cost was reasonable on GolfNow.

Hidden Gem

Off the beaten path a bit, but worth your while. In good shape, given the lack of rain in the area. What other reviews say about the greens right now are accurate. There are some spots in greens under repair that made putting difficult. Still in better shape than most other local courses right now. But, overall, a very scenic and picturesque course with a fair layout.

There were a few members driving around aimlessly and trying to bounce from hole to hole, which was the only annoyance for the day.

Wish they had a drink/snack cart on course as there is no way to get anything once you are out playing. Nice patio with a view for post-round cold ones.

lockwood folly 18-hole review 5/20/2021

We played in perfect conditions (80 deg; sunny, light winds). with 9:50 tee time. the course is narrow, with tree-lined fairways, and water on most holes. Challenging, but the variety of tees enables golfers of varying skill levels to be able to play. the only downside was an extremely slow foursome two groups ahead playing in a tournament that resulted in our 18-hole round completion time of 4:45 (we took no break at the turn).

Tight, challenging layout

It is a tight course, but great conditions. Most greens protected by sand, approach game needs to be dialed in to score well here.

Pretty much empty. Got there early. Cart attendant very friendly. Dan. Pro shop attendant provided adequate service. Think he should have suggested a purchase of range balls as I forgot and had to go back. I informed him that I had not played there in ten years. His response was that it was in great shape. And that the greens were great. That was definitely not the case. Sand traps were all raked and visually attractive, but they were very hard . Fairways for the most part were well maintained.. I found it odd that it was cart path only on the ninth hole with no apparent reason and my tee shot was mid fairway but there was a huge bunker with great length between the cart path and my ball. The quickest way to my ball was through the sand trap. No food/ beverage on the turn..Finishing hole was nice. To the parking lot. Met by another cart attendant who was very nice. Wanted to have a post round libation in their restaurant and was told that it was closed.

Rough start

First 2 or 3 holes, fairways and greens were not in great shape but conditions improve after that.
Nice layout and great staff, would do it again.
