Fun Arnold Palmer Course

This course is in great condition, and the course really comes in to its own on the picturesque Hole # 3, Dog Leg Left. Sometimes feels like you’re in South Carolina or Hilton Head when you play Birkdale. The greens are true, not the fastest but medium speed. Good green layout and gettable front 9 for the true handicap player. Good driving range/putting green facility. Packed on weekends. Perfect for Weeknight afternoons. Definitely playing again

Sadly, don't waste your time or money

Renovations? If this is the newly renovated course don't bother. Golf Mooresville Muni instead it puts Birkdale to shame in every aspect: Course conditions, amenities, staff and for the same price if not a bit less. I am an avid golfer, I play @ least 2x/week and I live less than 5 miles from Birkdale. Such a shame, will not be back.

New greens!!! Fantastic course!!!

I've played a lot of golf courses in my day and I know what a good course is. This course was a six or seven on a scale of 1 to 10 it has moved up to a 8 or 9 with these new greens that they have put in and made bigger.. taking down a lot of trees fix the cart paves. Honestly I really think it's one of the best courses in North Carolina now. And it's only going to get better in the next couple years. If you go play it you won't be disappointed!!!

Golf Now issues

They don't know how to charge GolfNow customers. I put down a deposit to reserve a tee time and I still get charged full price at the course.

It doesn't make sense that you use a reservation platform and then you blame the customer because you don't have the right buttons in your system.

All greens need to be replaced.

The layout is great the greens are terrible practice range is bad but the staff is great.

If you're looking for a practice round okay. But until they give this car some TLC don't pay for rate

Good Local course

The course was in pretty decent shape. I think they are getting ready for the "season" finally with the pandemic going on...Pace of play was great. took about 3:30hrs for two of us. Greens were not in such great shape but the fairways and rough were in good shape. Staff are friendly! I'd come back and play again.

Playing with my friends

The course looks tired with no grass on tee boxes and greens as hard as a rock. Some of the greens had bare spots covered with green sand and it's a shame that it's got Arnold Palmer's name associated with it. I would not pay more than 25 to play the course again.
