Dogwood Trace is an amazing public course! If you are in the fairway, you will always have a good lie (with the exception of landing in a divot). The course is pretty wide open with parallel fairways especially on the back nine, but the roughs will punish you as they are thick and deep enough that you can't see your ball until you are on top of it.

The greens are always fast and run true.

They have excellent practice facilities to include a driving range, chipping green with a large sand trap, and a large putting green.

Nice course , good shape and greens in very good condition . Played 18 in 3 hours which is fast for a group of senior bogey golfers . College tournament finishing up when arrived for tee time , but got us off on time and course very good shape . Not a long course and most holes pretty much straight . Only couple memorable holes , like the short par three 16 with lots of water , but great value for golf now rate . Only get down there couple times a year but always do enjoy .

This was my home course throughout high school. I left the area in 1988 to enlist in the Air Force. I play the course 8-10 times a year as I visit my parents. My last round here was my worst ever. I got on the first tee at 3:30pm with a cart. I figured I'd make decent time and finish 18 holes before sunset. On the first tee the ranger lets me know that the cart has to be turned in by 6pm. I'm thinking that's a lil odd as we still have daylight til 7pm. Oh well, I'll play what I can til 6pm. Well turns out the ranger just won't let me enjoy my round. The ranger stopped at our tee box on four occasions to remind us to have the cart back by 6pm. He was an elderly gentleman (I wish I had gotten his name). We managed to play 11 holes but on hole #12 he demanded that the cart be returned to the clubhouse (5:40pm). We planned to play the hole and return the cart. But he was not having it he literally sat there until we headed to the clubhouse. I never uttered a derogatory word to him. But you can rest assured that I won't be back!

Always good condition and pretty good pace of play. Get your low scores on the front nine as the back is longer and more difficult. If rough is up watch were your ball goes as it will sink to the bottom and may completely disappear. Always enjoy the round, regardless of,score.

Play pace was very slow. Balls coming from every direction on to the fairway from other holes. Noisy crowds on other holes. Very poor golf etiquette shown. Golf now discount not honored. Th course was in good shape, but due to all the other issues will not return or recommend to anyone.

Good value for the money. Very crowded for a holiday.. no carts available at tee time resulting in a 35 minute delay starting.

But management worked to get us on and started and we made it with delays in four and a half hours.

Don't post this.
