Staff was very helpful at check in, club house is small and would be nice if they had on course refreshments. Fairways are in decent shape, if you miss the fairways plan on scrambling to make par. The par 5 18th is a challenge at 618 yards. I would suggest using the course yardage book if available. Greens are in good condition and putted true. Pace of play was rather slow, did not see course Ranger during my round, overall fun day and will definitely return for another round.

Really nice course with great greens. Couple of bare spots on the tee boxes but nothing too terrible. I can imagine this course being very nice during the summer as the entire course is bermuda. You have to be accurate off the tee as missing a fairway will, more likely than not, put you in an awkward stance. Played on a very windy sunday which made the 639 yard par 5 18th pretty difficult.

Booked Hot Deal online. Arrived early to go to range. I was told I couldn't have cart u til 15 mi it's before tee time. Apparently they've had issues of people sneaking out early (Judy a thought - if you have a starter it wouldn't happen). So I sat there 45 minutes waiting. After getting a cart i went to the putting green because now it's almost tee time. At 9 minutes before my time, their employee Boyd, hollers from the door that I've been bumped. How does this happen? I reserved online. Come to find out, Boyd did some fast work and moved me out so a gentleman could bring his friend/wife out to complete their foursome. Now I'm stuck behind this group. Needless to say it turned into a 4 hours 45 minute round. We waited every hole and not once was their a ranger on the course to. Heck pace of play. Fortunately the 2 guys I got paired with were cool.

The Pace was very slow and could not finished all 18 holes. It seems that the course overbooked for the day.

The course Ranger was no help since there was a group ahead of us taking their time looking for balls in the woods with no one on front of them.

Loved the course and conditions for a December round. The greens were dormant but had green dye sprayed on it yet putted very true and smooth. There was a good variety of holes, length and direction. The lay hole at 630 yards will test your ability to string some shots together.

The clubhouse area is still in development but the course is well worth a visit.

The Red Bridge was a great find. I'm traveling across the US playing golf and accidentally came across this jewel. Not much of a clubhouse-they put the money into the coarse, which was in great shape. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in great condition. The Red Brige had something for all levels of golfers. The back tees make you use all clubs and had several forced carries off the tee box. The forward tees help the carries a lot. Fair and fun greens. All levels of golfers will enjoy!

Course was in great condition, especially the Fairways and Greens. Bunkers were also in good shape. One thing I did not like though, was many areas around the greens and parts of the rough were just mowed down crabgrass with many bare spots which was difficult to play off of and not much fun either. The clubhouse was a double wide trailer and they only served drinks and snacks, no sandwiches to eat at the turn.

Booked my tee time via the golf course website's pre-pay rate ($29.00)….which was ten dollars cheaper than anything else out there.

Played early in the morning on a fairly saturated course.

This is an amazing place for the value. Beautiful piece of property. A lot of elevation changes, tall trees lining holes, and not much housing or commercial development around. For much of the course, you feel you are way out there in the wilderness on a well manicured golf course overall.

Greens are very very nice. In excellent condition.

Tee to green is above average in terms of maintenance.

Its also a tough course that will put you in defensive situations quite a bit. On your approaches, you are going to have the ball slightly above or below your feet a lot. For many, including myself, that makes it tough to hit an approach shot close to the hole. And as others point out, I think it plays long. And because of the elevation changes, amazing vistas, etc…..sometime the course just visually looks longer than it is. You have to believe the yardages (which seem correct on the course) and commit to your shot.

The greens often have multiple levels and a lot of undulation. Given that its tough to get the ball close with your approach shots, there are a lot three-putt to be had on this course unless you are an excellent lag putter.

This is a challenging course, no question, but a beautiful one and hard to imagine a better value.

For those looking for a walkable course, this course is NOT walkable.

Drove from Winston Salem to give this gem a try. Read all the reviews and honestly was excited/ scared to see what we would get. To address some of the previous reviews/ issues. We had a golf now tee time and were treated like royalty. As far as pace of play I honestly think the drive between holes has a lot to do with long rounds as well as the VERY deep rough. Solution? Don't be on a hurry to play this place and take a moment look around. It's an absolutely a beautiful tract with nature galore and no houses! (A rarity these days). The guy in the clubhouse was extremely friendly and very helpful with tips for virgins like us. When we played greens were not too fast and fair. Conditions were the best I've seen yet this year ANYWHERE and I play lots of different courses. I wish it was closer to me but that's the breaks. Given the choice to drive down to Pinehurst for a day or this place.. I'm road tripping to Locust ! From a decent golfer who relishes in variety to all fellow golfers out there... Play this place at least once. You will not regret it whether you get a "deal" or pay full price.

The greens are in great condition. Fairways are nice. The rough was definitely tough! You want to stay in the fairway. The layout is interesting. The course plays long. I wouldn't recommend playing from the tips unless you are a low handicapper. Highly recommended.

I love playing at Red Bridge! The course is both challenging and beautiful. I also love how they always have Internet specials to help with the rising cost of playing golf in the Summer months. I would recommend this course to anyone willing to take a short drive down to Locust, NC. You won't be disappointed.

Very nice course, drove from Huntersville just to play this course. Greens were very nice. Little bit slow but very green. Fairways had plenty of grass, but do not hit your ball out of the fairway or you will have a problem finding it. Not sure if I like #18, from the white tees its 618 yard par 5, I'm not really that long off the tee so it makes it hard to par from the white tees, I would move up to the gold the next time I play. Course was in great shape.
