Poor conditions and slow

Greens were battered with ball marks, fairways very soggy. Bunkers and the practice areas were good. Pace of play got very bad on the back 9.

Lots of players start on 10

One of the worst courses I’ve seen as far as letting people start on the back 9 even though there are groups on 9. Be ready for play to slow to a crawl on the back 9. I informed management but they didn’t even reply to my email and apparently don’t see this as a problem.

Lots of Groups Starting on Hole 10

Had a good pace of play on the front 9. However, we got to hole 10 and the starter had let 3 groups start on 10 ahead of us. From there the pace of play slowed to a crawl and I called it a day. I emailed the general manager about this and never got a reply. Apparently they think it's okay to disrespect the golfers coming from 9. Be ready if you're trying to play 18 holes.

Course layout and condition were excellent. Staff was extremely friendly. Starter knew I was a single and provided options for an earlier tee time.
Take advantage of the putting green…….all 18 greens were challenging.
Will definitely play here again.

Groups jump in on 10 which really sucks.

Pace of play on front nine was fine . We get to 10 and there’s 3 groups that started on ten, ahead of us. We all know how much that sucks. It’s happened to me several times.

Tar Heel Enjoyed The Pack Course

This is a big boy track for sure. Forgiving fairways but a challenge. Wonderful conditioned course with slick greens. My only critique would be 18. Fairway needs to extend thru to the green & the left to right slope on approach is too penal.
