The North Course is one of two courses at Granite Falls Golf Club, the other naturally being the South Course. The North Course was built on a rolling, hilly terrain with stately trees and abundant shrubbery. Although the fairways are quite generous, they are undulating and surrounded by sand traps. There is also extensive mounding and bunkering, both grass and sand, to provide more challenge. Water hazards come into play on 10 holes. Many holes have beautiful mountain backdrops, creating a scenic environment for the game. The course has four sets of tees, making it accessible to all skill levels. Granite Falls Golf Club, in addition to the two golf courses, also features a grass driving range with target areas, two putting greens, and a short game area with a practice bunker.

After the rains

The course was very wet. It must have rained pretty good out here the night before. There was no standing water, but lots of sodden areas. Most of the greens are raised so nothing rolls up. They have lots of algae spots throughout the greens. It looks like they roll the greens, but the grass is just mashed down flat. With the rolling and algae, it makes the surface kind of bumpy and inconsistent. I think they roll them too often to make them faster. They need to treat the algae and clear that up. Other courses like Copper Canyon have fast and lush greens almost like a carpet. The greens here were more like the cheap Sun City courses. The pace was OK. I caught up to a twosome who started 30 minutes ahead of me by the 4th hole. By the fifth hole we were packed solid and waiting. On the 10th hole we could see the 18th hole had three groups on it. Ranger drove by several times, but did nothing.

Very Nice

I enjoyed my entire round. The gentlemen I played with were high handicappers but still got around the course in a reasonable pace. We need more of that. Hats off to the whole staff and the guys I played with. I will be back.

No beverage cart

No beverage cart or any place to get something to eat or drink at the turn, awful planning it’s super hot and you better bring your stuff to drink and eat to survive. Course is ok nothing special, for this amount of money many troon courses are way better.

North Course

North Course is a small distance from Clubhouse and should have some sort of food/snacks/drinks available at the turn since there is no food/beverage cart. Other than that the course is very enjoyable, well laid out, mixture of long & short distances and undulating greens that require a golfer to think through club selection and placement.

Fast greens

Greens were too fast to hold many shots. Lots of dark spots where grass was to short, otherwise course and facilities top notch.

Granite falls north

Had played the south course, today was the 1st time on north. Course was in great shape. Only blemish was no one repairing ball marks on par 3’s. It was a minefield, but it looked to only be at the flag location they were set at. Keep in mind on north you have no snack bar/resturant. You have to go back to the south course where you grabbed your cart. Other than that It was a steal at $109.

Everything was excellent…. Except for the ranger

Awesome course. Challenging but fair, & always well maintained. Clean bathrooms (3 of them) & 2 ice machines with filtered water. Excellent practice greens & driving range. All the staff are pleasant except for 1…. Big…. Fat…. ranger. He acts like he owns the course. Always has smart *** remarks. Always trying to rush you off the course if you’re not a member. Just an all around pain in the ***! Get rid of that guy & the course would be absolutely perfect. But with him there, it always makes me second guess whether I should spend my hard earned money there. Just my 2 cents.
