North Golf Course at Granite Falls Golf Club
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.

greens under repair
Made a tee time on golf now, and when I got to the course , I was told the greens are under repair. I couldn't cancel the tee time since it was under 24 hrs. I called golf now and had to wait over 2hrs for a call back.
I told them they should disclose that information on the web site . So I wasted 35min drive to get there and be disappointed. The course was very nice and gave me a free large bucket of balls for the range.. Golf now said they would credit me back , so the wait begins.
always in great condition
I like to play courses that always maintain perfectly. The few times I played, they were great each time.
First time to play Granite Falls North course. Very disappointed with complete experience. The course conditions were "much to be desired". There were many course maintenance workers on the last few holes and they would not stop or get of the way. If the course is doing this much prep work for overseeding.....you should just shut down the course and/or charge fees accordingly. We were recommended to try Granite Falls........overall pretty disappointed.
I really like the course overall. The cost is reasonable and the course condition is very good. The rough I will say is quite penalizing. It is narley Bermuda and even at the usual height is difficult to get out of. It's hard to even advance the ball. It definitely penalizes the golfer if you don't hit the fairway. Overall I give a 4 star rating for this course.
Great course and will definitely play it again. Need to have a beverage cart on the course or at least a lot more availability of water.
Battled dust wind and rain
I had to battle the dust, wind and the rain and it still could not ruin my round. The course is in excellent shape. The greens have recovered from the aeration. Fairways are lush and green. Pace of play was outstanding since everyone else fled when the wind and rain blew through.
Great course, not much else
Played there on a Friday morning with my college age daughter. Reed off at 8:30. Course was in great shape and so we’re the greens. There were water fountains every four or five holes but, when it’s 105 degrees and 52% humidity you get dehydrated fast. We played the. North course and we didn’t have any cups. Then we found out they don’t have a cart girl. I fully expected to fix the problem on the turn - but, there was only a bathroom on the turn. I needed some sugar or something to hold water in. My daughter was dizzy by the time we were done (4 hrs). Of course the regulars who play there know the drill and have their own coolers etc & their own cart..
I would expect with an older clientele they would be more thoughtful during the summer.. it spoiled an otherwise nice round. We’ve lived here 20 years. This place caught me off guard. We survived Granite falls.
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.
