Not Bad, Especially for the price

Was told the course was sold about 3 years ago. Looks like the prior ownership let it go, but new ownership has done a decent job of turning it around. They have new carts, with USB chargers. Greens took the biggest hit and could really use a remodel. Otherwise condition was really nice for the price. Tee to green the course was in good condition. Plays pretty easy, not a long course at all. Greens are a little firm, and well bunkered. All in all, a solid little track for the price range.

Pace of play from !!!!!!

We play the front in 1.hour 25 minutes with a tee time at 8 am and the back in 3 hours 20 minutes !!!!!!!!
They told us sorry but we have a tournament starting at 8.30 but you should be ok
Why is GolfNow let us book and pay in advance when a tournament is taking place
I do not know who should be blame
Nothing nice to say except never coming back to this poor run golf course
Look like a country club who went down hill and became public but still cannot make it

Interesting very hard

Enjoyed this rugged up and done course. Extremely difficult selecting the right club. Could be 2-3 clubs differential. Got a lot of rain. Greens were extremely slow. I may give it another try in the future

Beacon Ridge Saturday

Nice course and they were so great to get us on early even. This is not a brand new state of the art facility but is challenging and the carts are nice and quick! The staff is awesome! The greens were super dry.
The only bad thing was no ranger and 20+ minutes per hole on the back nine which made for well over 2 hours for that portion of the course. At times there were 3-4 groups on one hole. Of course that was largely due to several large groups that didn’t think they needed to get out of rotation when waiting on their food.
The pro shop says a 4-4.5 hour round is cool with them so it is what it is. I would golf here again for the discounted rate.

Fun Round at Beacon Ridge

FirstTime playing Beacon Ridge. Very enjoyable experience. Greens are in great shape. Fairways are just good. Condition to be expected, since we have not gotten very much rain around Pinehurst for the past month or so. Defintely planning on playing the course again. Staff was very friendly, especially Bill in the Pro Shop.

Slow going

Although the course could have been enjoyable, the pace of play was awful. It took five hours to play an 18 hole round. There was no ranger to speed the pace, so we were stuck waiting at every hole for a series of foursomes ahead of us to move along. The fairways were not great, but they were OK. The greens were decent with a true roll (no bounces) when you struck your putt. I would play here again, but they could use a ranger.

Average at best

Played beacon ridge after playing pinehurst no 4 and no 2. This was by far my worst score. Snobby front desk guy. No chance of finding your ball if it’s not in the middle of the fairway (pinehurst very easy to find your ball anywhere on the property) At least the greens were good. In other words, just go play pinehurst.

Fairly Easy Course

First time playing here although we know the area well. The course was pretty wet but there have been lots of rain lately. Paved cart paths could use some refurbishing, but overall, the course was fairly easy and moved right along. Staff was incredibly responsive and friendly.

Good value

Nice layout. Good pace of play and nice staff. Conditions could have been better. It has rained the night before and several holes were wet and muddy. Greens were slow and hairy but not too bad. Still a good value though.
