I played the West course for the first time in a couple of years. I meant to play the East, but the East drains terribly, so it was closed. The West was a little soggy from rain the night before, so Carts on Path was in effect. This course is not meant for COP, the cart paths are not very close to center of fairways, so plenty of walking was had. The cost of play wasn't lowered for the inconvenience which is a drab in my opinion. The course was fine, the only hiccup is the bunkers were terrible. There was little sand to be had, and most were filled with mushy mud from the rain. The golf carts no longer employ GPS, so bring your rangefinder as the course isn't well marked. The bright spot was there were maybe 5 cars in the lot, so the course was mine! The course isn't overly long or difficult from the proper tee of your ability.

The main problem I see with the Grandover Resort system is there is nothing available online about the golfing specifics. No online tee booking, no online prices listed, you have to call the shop. If they would adapt to modern online system with dynamic pricing and tee time logging, I would consider more often.

Sorry in advance for the long review, but the course deserves it. I drove about 300 miles to meet my friend halfway and we decided to play at Grandover East Course based on online reviews. I called ahead to make a tee time and the guys in the pro shop were really helpful. They let me know that the West course had been aerated a week prior and that they would be more than happy to drive us out to some of the greens to check out their condition before playing. Instead, we played it safe at the longer East course and it was an awesome round. The fairways and greens were in fantastic shape, they all played really well, and the pace of play was great (we finished 18 in about 3hrs 50 minutes.) The beverage cart came around about every 4 holes which was better than most courses. Overall a fantastic visit and worth the drive.

Had a great time at the West Course, yesterday although I played poorly. They have did an amazing job with maintaining the course considering the massive winter kill the area suffered. Greens were running at a good speed and the fairways and tee boxes all had nice cuts of grass. Hats off to the grounds staff for their hard work and to the pro shop staff for their kindness. I look forward to returning soon.

Great facility. Beautiful clubhouse, great practice range. Great layout that flows well. Very nice golf holes one after another. The fairways had winter kill but greens were in great shape. Hope to come back and play when Bermuda comes back in. Highly recommend this course.

First the course, then my experience. I played the East Course, which was OK but clearly not worth $61 for a weekday round when I played for 1/2 that the next day at a far superior course, Oak Hollow in High Point. Very few level lies even in the fairway, course does not drain well at all, and really just semi-interesting for a "resort" course.

Much worse, we were pushed back from our tee time so they could get about 30 seniors out for a shotgun start. I'm 60+ and asked about a senior rate, they said there is none, then they charged them $45 and me $61. Total (expletive deleted). Even worse, they have TWO groups on the first tee at our time and had groups 1A and 1B, dooming us to a 5+ hour round. This should NEVER happen, and I would NEVER recommend this course!!!

East Course was in great shape for February. Staff was extremely pleasant. We were the second group off for the day and felt like we had the entire course to ourselves. Greens were a little bit on the slow side but rolled very well. Cant wait to go back !!

I took my sons to play Grandover East, which is one of my favorite courses in the Triad. Since it is December, we did not expect great weather, but it was a nice day with temps in the upper 50's. Check-in was quick and efficient, and the staff was cordial and pleasant. Since recent weather had been very wet and cold, I expected carts to be on the path, which they were. However, the course itself had drained well and was damp but not real muddy. The dormant bermudagrass base was good, and I could play the ball down, which was unexpected. The greens were good speed and true. We played our round in 4 hours, which was nice because there was a lot of play. We saw a ranger at least twice on each side, which helped keep things moving. All in all, it was a great day to spend with my sons.

I have not played there previously due to the cost. However, the greens were aerated so they dropped the price considerably. The course is beautiful and aside from the greens, is in excellent condition. I enjoyed myself as did my playing partner and I look forward to a repeat visit as well as try the East course. In addition, the personnel were all gracious and helpful.
