Beautiful Course!

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful but challenging course! The back nine provides beautiful mountain scenery -- awesome! The staff was super friendly, and we had great service/food from the grill. I look forward to returning to Olde Beau SOON!!

Best spot in NC

As someone who lives in the village of Pinehurst- its pretty obvious that I know great golf courses & have access to about 30 gems within a 45 minute drive- that being said- the 2 1/2 hour trek to Roaring Gap to play Olde Beau is always SOOO worth it!!! What a phenomenal golf course- staff- & collection of mountain vistas!!! My favorite in NC & somewhere I always take visiting friends

Beautiful scenery and incredible greens.

The course isn’t real long but it is really difficult if you can’t place the ball where you want to. If you can place the ball, you can score really good.

Ball strikers paradise

Great course, layout is challenging but accessible, greens are a bit slow but true. There’s a little bit of everything on those golf course- water and sand guarding greens, uphill and downhill shots. Driver is not necessary on all par fours, shot makers paradise.

Nice course

Nice course liked the layout. Steep up and down hill are challenging. Don't like the short par 3s but that is just personal preference. Fairways and tee in good shape. Greens had been plugged but that was timing on us. Will definitely play again later when greens are healed up

I never complain about punched greens. Nor will I. This place knows how to do it. Greens rolled great in spite of recent aerification. Shane in the pro shop is down to earth and friendly. One of my favorite places that is always in top notch condition. The tee boxes are impeccable. Definitely worth the "drive".

This course is beautiful!

The only downside was the greens. A lot of sand but I’m sure it due to the warming of the season and getting the grass to grow correctly! Other than that, it was absolutely beautiful!

One of the most fun golf courses I’ve played!

Played a few days after the course opened for the year, and couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Looked like the greens were punched maybe a week or so ago but rolled really well, just slow. It was difficult but fun, and I played to a 78 net 71 (par 72), so I couldn’t have been happier. The views are AMAZING! For those that say you lose a lot of balls, if you hit your targets you’ll be fine. The only ball I lost was the one I hit from the “olde beau” plaque behind the green on 15 over the mountain for fun. The pro shop and course staff were great as well, thanks Shane for the tips and great service!

Olde Beautiful

Course was in great shape, #17 green has some issues, but the rest were perfect! Views awesome as always, Please note that the course has not gotten easier! LOL , Its a placement course, you will need their yardage book or gps if you’ve never played it, and good luck then. Course is tight and a great test of golf. True mountain golf course with extreme lies if you get out of position and sometimes when you’re in position. Many say it’s tricked up, not my observation, You can score well if don’t try to overpower the course and think your way thru it. It is one of the more difficult golf courses that I have ever played, but I love a challenge! Enjoy!!!

Extreme hills and beautiful scenery

This is definitely a must play course if you're in the area. Course is beautiful but extremely difficult especially for first time visitor. I loved every minute of it and definitely will be back to challenge it again.
