Elevation Changing Challenging Course

Challenging, but, fair course with memorable holes. Because of the Elevation changes it is important to select the right tees. Uphill holes will play longer than one extra club. There is a good balance between difficult and easy holes. Some holes have slopes that demand you stay below the pin. If you are into enjoyment and challenge this i the course for you.

Good value, course needs work

The course had a nice layout. The fairways had many weeds and bare spots. Would not return until the course is improved.

Misleading

I booked tee time and paid in advance. What they did not tell me was that they were having an outing and I would be following four foursomes. My tee time was shortly after 3:00 pm. I was unable to complete the round.

Failure to Disclose

I booked thru GolfNow and got 3:00pm tee time. When I checked in at the pro shop they told me I would be following 9 foursomes in a club event. This rather than start me on 10. Should have been disclosed prior to booking. Course, fairways and bunkers in average condition. No towels at ball cleaners. No Marshall’s. I was unable to complete my round due to darkness.

Skip this course

Beacon Ridge is a nice layout course and in a beautiful community.

You will have at least a half dozen hard pan lies during your round

The cart paths even a Afgan goat would be ashamed of.

No sand in the traps. Ponds with almost no water.

No restaurant and owners are less than accommodating.

Spend your money elsewhere.

For the $- it's tough to beat

Great condition right now- absolutely love playing Beacon Ridge. No restaurant or bar- but you can grab some beers from a proshop cooler. As the Pinehurst area continues to raise prices to almost absurd levels- Beacon Ridge is a fair deal & one of the best values in NC! JP

Great Routing

Greens were fine. Fairly fast but not crazy fast. Fairways were in decent shape. Rough was rough. Cart paths need quite a bit repair. Catch this course on a deal and it’s worth your time.

Nice Value for Pinehurst/Spruce Pines/Sandhills Visitors

Do you really want to shell out $500 just to say you played at Pinehurst. A number of great courses in Spruce Pines and Sanford without pinching your pocketbook. Found the staff members are friendlier as well. Had a great time at Beacon Ridge. Found it to be a very nice challenge. Other than picking the hottest day of the year thus far to play a round there, it was a tremendous experience. I will definitely return.

Nice Layout But A Couple of Areas Need Inprovement

Overall, we enjoyed our day on the course. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was laid out well and was relatively forgiving. The cart paths need a good bit of work and the greens were not the most well groomed - some of the turf needed to be re-sodded or spot sprayed. The weeds that did exist on the greens were cut short, along with the green itself but didn’t allow for a nice putting surface.

Probably a great course years ago

Weeds growing on the green. This course was probably really great years ago but it has not been maintained. Plentiful sand in some bunkers and barely any in others. General conditions suggest that this course has not been taken care of correctly.

Nice course - Great conditions - slow pace

Very nice course located in a private development. Thought I was entering CIA headquarters getting through the front gate house. ID required for entry and a 10 minute wait in line with 8 cars in front of me.

The course is a nice layout in great condition for early spring. I picked a morning of a member senior league play. Thank goodness they only played 9 holes. Back nine was much better on pace of play. One group looked back at me as I approached the tee, despite an open hope in front of them they didn’t offer to let a single play through on a par 9. My impression was that they were irritated that an outsider was playing on their course.

Beside that I would play again. The pro shop attendant was super friendly.
