Great Value

Course is in good shape. Greens are running moderate speed, lots of ball marks (please fix your ball mark and 2 others!), zoysia still has not completely come in.

Staff is excellent, pace of play very good, great value for the price.

Belk Park GC is one of my favorites!

Belk Park is a very fun and challenging course! On the front nine, the 2nd, 3rd and 5th holes are challenging if you do not play some good shots! The back 9 is a good mixture of holes! The course is in very good condition! The greens are rolling great! Book a tee time at Belk Park GC and you will not be disappointed!!

Great Round

Recently played Belk Park and it was in great condition. With the drier conditions over the past two weeks the course was playing super fast as the fairways and greens were cut low. The greens were super fast. Probably as slick and true as I have ever experienced at Belk Park. It was a great ground and I look forward to returning soon.

Completely Soaked

The course was practically underwater! Hard to find a dry spot to advance your ball on your next shot. Greens rolled ok but pretty slow because of the moisture in them.
Needs a good 7-10 days of dry weather to completely dry out.

Belk - Frequent Flyer

I've played Belk probably 100 times going back 20 years.

Course is ALWAYS playable - fairways are typically good whether you play in February, June or November. Greens are sometimes slower to protect against steam rot, but they're never lost as we experience at other courses in the area.

Course gets a lot of play, so the greens are sometimes at the mercy of the individual golfer and their divot tool.

Pick the right tees for your game and enjoy the round.
