The Boone course is a beautiful setting. The course lay out is very challenging. Playing in the morning the grass is wet so adds more strokes vs. afternoon when dried out. Also, pin placements can be very challenging...and require vey precise approach shots and putts...easy to 3 putt many holes.

Don't get to disappointed with your score...just enjoy the beauty of the course.

Practice facilities were minimal except for the practice greens which gave you an idea of what was to come on the course.

Greens on the course had many undulations, were fast and hard to read so very challenging.

The fairways and tee boxes were in good shape. Many of the holes were very scenic.

Fun afternoon of golf with good friends from Florida. The course was, and usually is, in great condition and the staff is always friendly. The restaurant upstairs is a good place to discuss your good and bad shots. The ambience is kind of plain, but the food is good! Great place to play.

Being from Florida I loved the opportunity to play bent grass greens. Fast, smooth and in excellent condition. Fairways can be described the same. 73 and played from the senior tees that were distance fair. A little water and a few sand traps with wide fairways. Played twice while on vacation and really enjoyed the experience. Staff were exceptionally friendly.

This course is surprisingly flat for the part of the country in which it is. It is a first rate course, maintained superbly, and run with professional efficiency and courtesy. All aspects of the course-greens, fairways, tees, bunkers - are top notch. We played on a busy Wednesday morning and experienced very little delay

First round here. Very nice golf course. Excellent condition. Fair test on a well designed layout. Greens were truly exceptional. Speeds on greens were consistent (and fast), with outstanding turf and some very interesting undulations. Fairways and tee boxes were also in excellent shape. An otherwise perfect day was diminished only by a very slow pace of play and no marshaling. Seems like they had way too many people on the course, double-starting on front and back tees for PM rounds at 7 or 8 minute intervals. Round took 5 hours, 10 minutes - painfully slow at times.

Excellent course. Beautiful setting. Pristine fairways and greens. But the designer of the par 3s is an evil man. Visually tormenting. Just long enough to be entirely intimidating. I'll be ready next time. I'll bring my shrink!
