Great course

I live in Charlotte and will make the drive to play this beautiful course. I love everything about it except for the fact that so many people do not repair their divot marks on the greens. The greens themselves are very nice, but because people are so lazy and do not repair their marks they’re pretty rough in some areas. It’s truly a shame that people don’t respect this wonderful course! Regardless, I will keep coming back because I love the layout and challenges the course presents

1st time player

we heard many good things about this course and it held true 100%. Beautiful layout, however quite challenging. Manicured beautifully. Grounds crew very respectful of our play. We never waited for anyone. It was a perfect day of golf on a perfect golf course. We will be back for sure. Thank you!

Ball marks

They may need provide free divot tools and hands on training to the masses. Greens would have been 5 stars without all the pitch marks. The rest of the course was in wonderful condition. The greens still rolled true but having to repair pitch marks on every hole should not be necessary.

Always a treat to play

After a couple of days with lots of rain the course was surprisingly good shape. Bunkers were packed solid and heavy but otherwise very playable.

Overall Excellence

Course in great shape. Beverage cart made plenty of visits. Course was not crowded on Sunday morning. The reason is obvious. PRICE at 65 am and 55 twilight is too much. 45 am and 35 pm would be more in line. Guess they don't need the money.

Excellence!

Rock barn has really put the work in on the Jackson course and it shows! The fairways are absolutely beautiful, Greens roll very true/consistent with just enough challenge to keep you coming back, also I love the newer fancy carts too. Great practice/warm up area and the bar and grill across from the pro-shop is a great spot for a cold beer and delicious eats (Thanks to Fresh-Chef) before or after a great round of golf. Friendly staff helps with anything you could need. Been playing here 1-2 times a week and will continue to do so!

Pleasant surprise

I have played the Jackson course many times and today it was in the best shape that I have ever seen! We saved $13 + tax by booking through GolfNow and right now you cannot find a better value. Totally impressed!

Great Day

As a player from Florida we enjoyed the elevation changes and the bent greens were fabulous. We will play here again!
