Never disappoints!

This course is simply exceptional! It's going to be disappointing when it goes dormant, right now (late Sep 2021) the fairways are the best I've ever played. Ur ball literally sits right on top of the grass most of the time. Greens are receptive and roll true. Traps are in good shape. The sand is a little different than I'm use to, pretty easy to leave a ball in if you don't give it a good thump.
Roughs can be punishing (thick Bermuda) but the fairways are plenty wide.
A golf app is a necessity playing the 1st couple times to avoid trouble.

Maybe Next Time

This was my third trip to this course and we were looking forward to a good afternoon of golf but unfortunately we didn’t get an opportunity to play today, I made our tee time on Golf Now 3-4 days ago and wasn’t aware that there was an amateur tournament going on there this weekend. We arrived about an hour and half before our tee time to warm up on the range and were met by a large group on and around the course. We went inside to check in and were told about the tournament and it might be a while before we could get out. We waited for about another hour and a half and then decided to go try another course that was near by. My son told me later that the tournament was listed on the club website but there was nothing mentioned in Golf Now so I guess I should have checked the club before making the tee time. So we didn’t get our chance today here but I won’t get discouraged and we’ll try again another day. We really enjoy this course and look forward to coming back again. I am a little puzzled as to why they were taking tee times with the tournament going on but hey, it’s ok, like I said, we’ll try again.

Worth getting off 95

My wife and i really enjoyed this course. Fairways were wide and in good condition, not much water but many well maintained sand traps, the greens were smooth and quick.

The staff was really great, very accommodating.

Great place to play on the way north from myrtle beach.

Simply Spectacular

What can I say? This course is absolutely a hidden gem in Rocky Mount, NC. An extremely fun course to play with a great layout and without question, the best greens within 100 miles. The superintendent does a fantastic job with tee boxes as they are all very well defined and consistent. The fairways are perfect.
Butch, who works in the golf shop, made us feel very welcome and was very accommodating. He explained any quirks and blind shots on the course. We didn’t use the food and beverage outlets so no review on those.
The experience was absolutely top notch and will DEFINITELY be back.
Thank you to Butch and the assistant pro who we chatted with after the round to tell them how great everything was.
You will not be disappointed!!

Great Track - Drain Issue

Always a great track, but doesn’t drain well. It was cart path only today and the fairways were extremely sloppy. Greens and tees were great, but slow greens. Wait until things dry up and it’s well worth the money.

Good Time

My son and I played this course for the first time, it was really nice. Fairways and Greens were in excellent shape. There were a few areas that were wet but overall the course was in great shape. Really enjoyed the layout, will definitely return for another round in the future.
