Nice staff,

A little bit regretful is that I am supposed to have power cart included, but no power cart is available due to large rain in the night before. I am just wondering whether Golfnow could give me a small credit for the missing power cart? Thank you anyway for your help! Perry

Good Value Short Course

We got a good rate on Golfnow with a cart on Labour Day for $50.
Whoever laid out the course made maximum use of the available space. However, there are several places where holes cross or where the tee box is directly beside the green of the previous hole. There were no screens or the screens were in the wrong place. Extremely dangerous.
Looking at each hole in isolation there were some interesting challenges, the length of the holes and narrow fairways made for some interesting risk/reward choices. Despite what I said about the layout, I enjoyed most of the holes.
I'm not sure I would return but if the safety issues were addressed this is a good course for a novice golfer to work on their game.

Best value in Durham

25 bucks for 18 after 4pm is amazing value. Course layout is interesting with many unique holes. In 2021 a 25 dollar round is insane.

The course is quite short but it was in pretty good condition and the price was right.

Fun for what it is

It's a bit run down, very dangerous layout ie: criss crossing everywhere, fun non-the-less.

Course layout is very dangerous

First time playing this course on a Sunday morning. Unbelievably busy.

The course layout from a players perspective is ok, however, from the safety perspective, it’s ridiculously dangerous.

Almost every fairway (second shot) was in the tee off zone of another hole, me and my playing partner had at least 9-10 balls that landed near us from the other tee. No one really call fore neither, I don’t blame them because they probably can’t see us.

The course is relatively short, which leads to another problem, you are not ‘allowed’ to tee off until the group in front of you is off the green. Therefore the pace of play is guarantee to be slow.

The surprise to this course is, you actually get to see a lot of salmon swimming along the lake.

But for my personal safety, I probably would not come back to this course.

Course has been poorly maintained

Proshop staff was not friendly. Majority of cart path were not evenly surfaced, slippery and pretty unsafe in wet weather condition.

Obscure Course

The greens were good surprisingly. The fairways were decent. The course layout is very tight so beware for bad shots next to you The tee boxes were in very rough shape . It’s a very short course. It wasn’t awful but not great. I won’t be back but I did enjoy the pair I was with.
