Needs help

Greens and tee boxes in terrible condition. Greens had tons of old, un-repaired ball marks making smooth putting a joke. Greens were recently mowed when wet and clumps of grass were everywhere which shows worker apathy. Fairways bald in so many spots we grew tired of looking for relief from the clay. Cart paths are in need of help and some spots dangerous. One of our carts almost tipped over. No attempts to pair golfers on a busy day slowing down play. Fortunately the word is that the city is going to invest in improving conditions soon.

This place should pay you to play it

I think the course, as is, isn't worth $1 per hole. From fairways that don't have grass in them to cart paths that look like an earthquake struck, to greens that don't get repaired, this course is terrible. If Donald Ross were still alive this course would make him quit golf design. Put your money elsewhere.

Fun course, not enough funding yet for good conditions

The staff are very friendly, the layout is a lot of fun, the greens are a good challenge. Unfortunately, they haven’t had enough money to keep the conditions up. Some crappy fairways and burnt out green. But for a muni, it’s a good course

#18 par 3 hole in one!

One of our party got a hole in one on the #18 par 3. This is a long but down hill back toward the club house with a beautiful view. A view of the club house, front nine and a ball rolling in from 200 yards away.

Decent, but fairways in rough shape

For the money, this is course isn’t bad at all, but could use quite a bit of work on the fairways. Greens were in pretty good condition though.

City needs to invest in a BIG way.

We enjoyed the layout of this track. The fairways and greens were in bad shape. The cart paths were absolutely terrible in multiple areas. If the city would invest in this course and repair it properly, it would be a great revival for a wonderful design.

Muni

Hitting off of a lot of dirt patches. Bunkers are like concrete. Get what you pay for.

Course condition

We played this course for the first time. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Front 9 was decent, it was hard to tell the fairway from the edge. Car path was terrible with big wholes. The putting greens where in good shape.
The car path on the back nine where worse, some of fairways on the back nine had huge wholes of dirt with little grass. The golf cart did not drive smoothly.

Great Staff Terrible Conditions

The back 9 is not worth your time. It’s in literally terrible condition. I know it’s a public course owned by the city, and I play these courses frequently. This one is a one and done……. Pay more and play somewhere else in the Asheville.

Fun for a Municipal course. Staff is friendly but cart path could be a potential liability in some areas. Front 9 flat and back 9 more challenging! Greens were slow and straight shots.
