Excellent value course that holds your concentration and enjoyment much better than some more expensive courses. Lay out/design suits the eye, all round conditioning is above average and greens are nice and true. Choose the right tees and it will challenge any handicap player. Staff could not be nicer and are very genuine in their attitude. You will not be disappointed if you choose to play here.

Added this course late in our week for a change of pace. And super happy we did!! Most holes are true links. Open fairways, run up approachs are possible. Windy due to it so open. Conditions amazing!! Get ready #18 plays 767 yards par 6 around a lake. Course also plays back and forth between North Carolina and South Carolina. Keep ur eyes open for gators.

Nice course between North and South Carolina.

You pass often the "border"...

Nice finishing hole, Par 6, starts in SC and ends in NC.

Good conditions, nature, ...

After playing a couple of local courses I decided to try out this course. WOW, we these greens outstanding compared to the other courses I played. Even the dormant grass seems to be greened up more. I did struggle with the length on a couple of wholes, but over all it was great. It was also fun that the course plays on both sides of the N. Carolina/ S. Carolina border. I will play this course again.

Very enjoyable round...an interesting layout that will challenge every golfer. Prepare for #18, and you thought a 6 was a bad hole!

A good blend of holes that will welcome a well placed tee shot and test your target golf skills.

I look forward to my return to the Farm.

Greens at Farmstead are top-notch. Atmosphere is Really peaceful and quiet. No houses around!! Several tee options to choose from. I played the tips and it was long, but fair. Only good things to say about the course.

Unfortunately, they double book the nines in the AM.. turn nine and there are 6 groups on 10!! If I can figure out how to post a picture I will.. back nine took over 3 hours! Absolutely ruined a great experience.. it was so bad we will probably never go back. I would recommend if you can get a pm round on a weekday.

This was our first trip and to say the least ... we were impressed!! Great layout and well taken care of. The only complaint was the starter said the greens were about a 10 on the stimp. Maybe a 7 at best but the rolled true and were very smooth. The finishing hole is a long dogleg left par 6 with water on the left. Save a little bit of gas in your tank because you will need it to finish that monster!! We will be back.

Couldn't ask for a better conditioned course to play in February. No surprises, what you see is what you get layout. Great greens with subtle breaks that force you to pay attention. Will always try to play here when I am in the area.
