Excellent course

I really enjoyed the challenge of this course. I am average golfer and did not know the course, so it was a bit unnerving hitting to greens that are elevated and hard to see the layout.

MY big complaint is all of the ads on the GPS system. We spend way too much time trying to get the GPS back to golf so we could hit. It was a major distraction and actually had our group upset. When someone puts that many ads on their system, they must be really desperate and not someone I would do business with.

The staff were very friendly, when we played it last year the man at the cash register would not give us a small bag of practice balls because we had used Golfnow to book are tee time, this year we got a smile and golf balls.Also, when we drove into the parking lot the guy in charge of the carts and also doing the job as starter drove a cart out to our car. It looks like there must have been a new general manager! Thanks Bob Gornick

Beautiful Course

First time on a course like this. Other than recently punched greens, course in excellent shape. GPS in carts was terrible. Kept saying we were off course and go backwards, problem was we were on the paved cart path.
Staff very friendly and got 25% off for punched greens. .

Beautiful and Challenging

I played this course 3 times in 4 weeks. It certainly is a different experience from coastal golf in NC! It is much better than neighboring Smoky Mountain Country Club!! You will not be sorry about playing here!

Better bring your A game.

Several tees for all handicaps
However distance is not as difficult as the sloping farways & greens. You have to be able to hit uphill and downhill lies.
Greens are huge and perfect shape as are the fairways.

First time playing

We played this course for the first time on a hot deal. Usually out of our price range, there are good courses close by for much cheaper. The day we played it was after some rain for a couple days so it was cart path only. The course was in phenomenal shape, even with the wet conditions. My opinion is that it is the best course in that area. We will play again if we can find another affordable rate. Only negative is the off course amenities. You don't stop by the clubhouse at the turn and the bathroom on the from nine is a porta-potty. Not a big deal for me, but played with the wife. Big deal for her. The back nine did have a real bathroom.

Move up

2nd time I played this course. Forgot how long the forced carries actually are. Unless you hit consistent bombs with your driver, move up a set of tees. Pay attention to the flat areas of the tee boxes.
My only real complaint is that they were doing a lot of maintenance all over the course, including spraying the turf next to us while we were playing. I am concerned about possible exposure to toxins.
On 15, if you can go for it and cut the corner, you will be very close to the green. You'll see when you get to that hole.

Keep It in the Fairway!

The fairways were reasonably wide, but be careful not to stray beyond the first cut of rough because the second cut can be brutal. The greens are undulating and very smooth, but not as fast as they appear. A good quality golf course tee to green.

Fantastic experience

The scenery is spectacular and It didn’t seem to matter how well I played or not. The layout is honest with everything in front of you. A little tough for a first timer to pick the right club and/or line from all those elevated tees. Course was in tiptop shape from tee to green. I can’t wait to play it again! .
