It's a very nice track to play. Playing from the White tees or blue give the course more character.

First Time Playing

Big greens Big Fun

This was my first time at Belk Park and I was pleasantly surprised. We got a hot deal and at the cost it was a steal. The course is fun. Nice design. The large greens were impressive. Challenging at times but rewards good ball striking. I dont know what they charge regularly but I've seen worse courses charge $40-50 to play. *cough Orchards cough. The most interesting thing I saw and would love to talk to the Super about was the tree stump in the 3rd green. I have questions hahaha. Anyway I enjoyed it and would recommend.

Almost as slow-paced as Spencer T Olin.

The condition of the course was less than average…the greens were incredibly soggy and appeared to be fertilized. The biggest issue we had was how the pace of play wasn’t balanced out. We were as patient as we could be, but when we got to the 7th hole, we grouped up with the 11:10am twosome that teed off prior to 11am. They let us play ahead at the turn and we still were stuck behind multiple slow twosomes. When we got to the tee box of the 14th, we decided to jump to the 16th, which was wide open. We played 16-18, and went back to 14 to finish the two holes we skipped. By the time we got to the parking lot to unload our equipment, The first of three groups that were ahead of us, a foursome, was just finishing #18. By skipping those holes and coming back, I’d say we saved about 40 minutes. Otherwise it would’ve been close to a 5-hour round. Either the twosomes need to be pushed ahead of the slow foursome, or the twosomes need to pair up, pacing the play out. If the golf marshall does not have the awareness to fix this issue, then Belk Park does not need a marshall.

Great weather, slow play...

The rough had not been cut, lost a couple of balls and gave up looking for them out of respect for pace of play. Fairways not cut, a little shaggy. The greens were chewed up, numerous ball marks not fixed (this is a recording). It was crowded due to great weather on a Sunday. Really slow play, I was a single and still took close to four hours to complete round.
