Great Public Course

As a high handicapper that hadn’t played in well over a year I think this course was very, very nice. I don’t need very much so to see how hard the staff works - groundskeepers, club house manager, and F & B staff are doing very well. Keep up the good work and I cannot wait to play your course again soon!

Greens were in poor shape

The course was not worth the fees charged. The greens were in terrible condition, barely puttable on some.

Great Run Course

We have played here several times. Staff is friendly and helpful each time. The course has been in great shape. Fairways are great, maybe because I don't hit into them very much.

Misled

Front nine was being aerated. Disgruntled pro shop employee just pointed at the sign saying this was the case with no other instructions on where to go or who to see.

5-some all over the golf course with the one behind me playing loud music from a boom box.

Fairways need to be cut.

Always book online

the course was beautiful, but make sure to book online to get any kind of discount cause if you call and book the same time slot expecting to get that rate you don't you get get charged full rate so $50-60 instead of $30-35. Carts a little slow wish they were faster to speed up play.

Great course, excellent layout

Dogwood Trace continues to be one of the top Muni's inthe state! I think the regular price to play is a bit high for the area; I only book thru GolfNow for ~$30.
The practice facilities are top notch; more targets on the driving range would be nice--there are only 3.
