Well above average for a municipal course. The greens are very nice , true and good pace. Be prepared for a 465 yd par 4 from the championship tees. Our group enjoyed Dogwood Trace. We’ll return!

Challenging for all levels. Great greens.

Very nice layout. A couple of long and challenging par 4s. We think the course plays well for all level amateur golfers. The greens are great but much better if ball marks are repaired! We will return.

Very nice track

Dogwood Trace is a gem. Always well kept. Staff is great. Good practice facility. Pace of play was good. Water was provided throughout course and ice and water at the pro shop for you start, turn and finish. My usual complaint, people are not fixing their ball-marks and many were hard to miss craters. Greens were nice but a bit furry and slow. Fairways were also a bit long and rough had a lot of areas that were pretty deep and the ball would disappear. Dogwood Trace is well worth playing and though we didn't stop in this time, the restaurant/bar is nice after round

Wash the carts!

Everything was great but the carts were super dirty and looked run-down. I thought they got new carts but I'm sure these weren't them. Spray them off and wipe them down. The gunk on the side of the seats and dirt on the inside of them is horrible. Other than that the course was in great shape although not many people fixing ball marks on the green, and the staff was super friendly especially the young man behind the counter and the starter Mr. Young.

Great shape

Other than some yahoo ahead of us that kept dropping his wedge on the greens without fixing the damage, and a few other ball marks on the greens, the course was in the best shape I’ve seen it all year

Beautifully maintained course

Very well kept and moderately challenging course. I just wish more people would fix their divots on the greens. Maybe they should give away cheap plastic divot tools at the desk.

Great Value

The greens and fairways are in great shape right now. The course is one of the best public courses around and it's nearly half the price of some of the others. It's a decently challenging course if you play the back (gold) tees. I was a little sad that my round got cut short due to the weather, but I'll for sure be back.
