Really enjoyed playing first time

Cart paths are really really bad and could be dangerous with some of the bad dips.... would loved to play again next year if they repair the cart paths. Course is wonderful and very friendly to the weekend golfer. Thanks for asking.

Give It a couple of Months

The course layout is good. However the course conditions are not worthy of a $60.00 rate at this time. The greens were punched and the fairways has very little grass.

Not worth the price

Greens were as if no one that plays there has any clue how to fix a divot. Spotty, slow and full of crab grass. Definitely not worth the $80. Many course for less or same price with way better value.

Great track, friendly staff, difficult conditioning

This is a really cool layout. Great use of undulations and some holes where you really have to think about your strategy,

Conditioning was tough. Totally understand they are coming off a tricky winter and am sure are working hard to get it back. However, the course is suffering from fairways which are in a poor condition and very bumpy greens (although they were a good pace).

Overall, 7 Lakes makes a nice change from some of the older courses in Pinehurst. I enjoyed my round but felt the green fee was steep given the course conditions.

Staff were all very friendly and welcoming.

GO HERE ANY CHANCE YOU GET

This place is unreal. The course is in great shape and has an incredible layout. You also get 2 beers and a meal included in the price of a round, so the value for your money is out of this world. If you come here once, you’ll be back for sure. To top it all off, the staff is top notch. Very friendly and quick. I can’t recommend this place enough. Go here if you have the chance!

Pinehurst Area Golf Trip

Course needs water. Greens very slow. Bar and restaurant closes early. Nothing available at the turn. Pro Shop Attendant very rude and condescending to the group. Overall could be a good course but can tell they are cutting corners operationally.

Good course

Have played here a few times a year for the past several years charged the local rate which was suppose to include food and a couple off drinks. Golf course Ian in decent shape green shirt are slow which is expected this time of year but overall good. Went to bar before round purchased beverages for the round got a free cooler but couldn’t wait for food because they were busy and we had to tee off so young lady said we will be here when you get done. Finished at 4:30 and the older lady I believe manager was rude and said food is not available I’ve been here since 6:00 am like it was our fault. Then proceeded to argue with us about whether we were told or not about food not being available. If it’s isn’t available that’s fine but you charged each of us for it so basically that would be like charging me for a tee time then saying sorry we are closed with no refund. No thanks happy about it so be cautious and make sure you get what you pay for
