Spectacular views! (Yardage book mandatory for 1st-timers!!!!!!!)

Views are truly incredible! Staff is friendly. Course is in great shape. It was our first time playing OB and by the third hole we realized we desperately needed a yardage book because of the blind shots. Pro shop was out. We lost count of how many holes we had to ride up to be sure we wouldn’t hit into the group in front. We got hit into three times. My point is not to degrade the course -the course is excellent and in great shape!- but to convey the VERY importance of knowing where to hit and when to lay up. I can personally assure you you’ll score several strokes better and save a few balls.
Great course! We’ll play again….with a yardage book! :)

Great scenery & great weather & fun/difficult course.

Great place to play when hot. Usually Cooler up on the mountain. Nice greens, good condition, tough course with some tricky holes. Overall fun experience!

Great course, excellent layout, AMAZING VIEWS

Love this course! Everything is in great shape, expecially the greens. The mountain views are absolutely wonderful. The fairways can be a little sparce in some areas but it's not a tournament, move the ball to good grass which is easy to find.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND a golf app and a range finder with slope for this place. There are SIGNIFICANT elevation changes on most holes.
PS: a tip for the last par 5 - hit your tee shot right of the rock in the fairway, you'll have a chance to reach in 2. Left of the rock is dead unless you're a slicer.

Incredible! I don't understand how this place doesn't have a full tee sheet every day!

I was visiting in Creston, NC. Got a Hot Deal for 9:10AM 38.99. The course was about 90 minutes from where I was staying but seemed like a good deal and the course reviews were all very positive. I arrived and the parking lot was fairly empty on a gorgeous Thursday morning. I was by myself and walked into the clubhouse the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. He directed me to a cart and pointed me to the range and putting green. The range and putting green were in great shape so I had high expectations. I was not disappointed.
I was a solo at 9:10 AM on a hot deal. There was no one on the course. I leisurely played through 7 holes and didn't see anyone but grounds crew out and about. I caught up to a couple on 7/8 and laid back a bit. They were at the turn and kindly offered me to play through. Went through the back nine and had the course to myself.
The greens were some of the best I've ever played. The greens rolled true and were smooth. The fairways, traps, 1st cut, etc was all in excellent shape.
There are some beautiful homes on the course as well as some AMAZING views.
If ever in the area I will absolutely return to Olde Beau. They've got a cute logo as well. Picked up a shirt for myself and one to bring home to my son.
Shot a 91...not great but not complaining for the first time on the course. Beautiful day!

Fun but tough

You’re going to need a variety of shots here to score well. Very fun to play for the first time and will return to this gem.

Wow

True test of golf. Positioning of shots a key. A lot of blind shots from the back tees. Hit a 3 wood or long iron off #17 tee over the rock or just left for the best angle to hit the par 5 in 2. Majestic views will distract you when playing. Greens were rolling well so pay attention to the slopes or you’ll card an easy 3 putt. Worth the travel

Best spot in NC

I've given a few reviews of Olde Beau over the years- but honestly it's just about the best experience in the game of golf! The golf/views/price/staff are just beyond anything you get in Pinehurst. How this place isn't a permanent fixture on top-10 lists shows just how pathetic & corrupt the rankings systems are. GO PLAY BEAU- YOU CAN THANK ME LATER- worth the 2 1/2 drive every single time!!!!

Hit a hole in one on #3. Aim for the hill on the backside of the green and it’ll roll right back.

Course directions

Some better directions or some better signs on getting to some of the tee boxes otherwise the course was in great shape. Everyone from the grounds staff to the pro shop and the snack shop were very polite and courteous.

A TRUE HIDDEN GEM

This is one of the best courses I have played. The scenery and air in the mountains is extremely beautiful and comfortable. The course is taken care of meticulously and the hospitality of the staff is wonderful. I look forward to returning and spending more time.

Great, tough Mountain Course

Beautiful views and rolling hills absolutely define this course. So much interesting elevation change that club selection is vital to either get up to the green or make sure you don’t overshoot it. Driver not necessary on every hole which is a nice change from most courses near here. Greens rolled smooth and for the most part true. 10/10 would recommend.
