Should have worn boots

The only word I have for this course is miserable. They needed to close because of the rains. Letting golfers on the course under these miserable conditions can lead to injuries and extreme damage. Face the weather facts, close the course when its condition turn dangerous.
Never again!

This course was very challenging. Hills, water and sand make this an excellent course. Staff was very friendly and courteous.

Great outing and course!

Late December and the greens were in fantastic shape. Course was in great condition as well. Considering most courses have been very wet, Preserve was significantly better. Highly recommend the course!

Christmas Golf

Took several members of my family for a round of Christmas golf. The course was very wet from the rain the day before, but we played favorable lies for the round. The greens were in very good shape. The fairways were wet, but playable even with the rain. I've played this course many times and have always enjoyed my round. The course does have some very challenging holes, several gullies and waste area, so bring extra balls. Will definitely come back

Great track!

Our tee time was 1:20pm on a Monday, so the course was not very busy. It rained the night before pretty heavily but the fairways and greens drained very well and didn’t impede play at all. Overall this was a great course and I would highly recommend. Lots of elevation change on this track, which makes it play very different than many others in the triangle area that tend to be more flat. Will definitely be visiting again soon!

Not my favorite course

Was somewhat disappointed in the course. "Hard" is the operative word. Hard layout, rock hard greens, fairways hard and cut very close. Some tee boxes in poor shape. About 1/2 the sand traps (and there are many) had coarse compacted red sand, very tough to play out of. Greens on the small side and some really tough pin placements, some borderline unfair. Clubhouse and snack bar are fine, driving range right beside clubhouse is nice. Staff was fine. Pace of play was good. No marshal on course, nor beverage cart..

Great Day at Perserve

After traveling from New York, I was happy to hear the course was open for play
The course was hit with 8" of rain the day before. Cart path only, no range or practice area open. The course was seriously wet and messy. It made it extremely difficult. However, beautiful layout, greens were understandably slow but beautiful. Sun came out, 18 holes with my son, cant ask for more

High handicap view

Excellent course, but very challenging. Balls must be hit in the fairway, so bring extras. Course conditions, pace, staff, facilities were very good

Tough course

Be sure and pick up hole guide at pro shop. It will show you your targets. Many dogleg holes. Some inconsistency in green speed but overall great course. It says it’s an advanced course and it is with blind shots and severe elevation changes. I enjoyed the challenges.
