Always in great shape...

I have played this course 5 times over the past few months and it is always in great shape. The course drains well and the greens roll true. It is surrounded by pine trees and there is never a pine needle on the greens - not sure how they do it. Can't wait for the next round at UNC Finley!

Great Course

Overall, great course. The course is fairly wide open and very playable. A couple of the holes have a great risk/reward factor for tee shots and the greens were in great shape. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my round there, even though I'm an NC State fan, lol. Great course, would definitely like to play again when in the area.

Excellent experience

Very good conditions overall. Greens rolled true and were well taken care of. Nice layout and very comfortable feel. Not the longest course, but still challenging and requiring shot management. Staff were all great. Only gave off course amenities a lower score since most are unavailable due to COVID. Overall, Enjoyed it.

Course in good shape

Haven’t played here in a few years. . It’s in good shape. It’s a little pricey though.
Not crowded today which was nice. Friendly staff
