Challenging course

The course is challenging with many tree lined fairways to entice risk and reward shot making.
Pin placements were in interesting positions.
Almost impossible to stop putts above many of the holes.

Semi private course for good price

If you can get past the up tight old men then you will have a great time. The course is challenging but rewarding at the same time

Creative Course

Had a blast playing this course. The holes allowed for creativity to allow for different strategies to be played. Greens were like putting on ice, but just made it that much more fun

Save Your Money, Play Elsewhere

Very disappointed! Save your $80 and play twice at any other course in the area. A group of 6 coworkers played there recently in a 2-man scramble. We, of course, followed the given rules and played a 4-man team and a 2-man team. After noticing that there weren't any other golfers within 3 holes of us, we combined our scramble play. Swiftly, the marshal appeared out of the trees, halted our putting, and advised us that we were in violation of the strict 4-man max rules. We politely complied, only to notice that 2 holes in front of us 5 old men were playing together with no reprimand. My assumption is that someone complained and Paradise enforced their strict 'subjective' rules on the group that included two players of Mexican birthright. Shame on us for not being old, white, rich Karens. Ps, they don't sell beer there, or at least not to people that don't look like them. #KeepFayettevilleWhiteAgain #PlayStonebridgeInstead
