A Gem

Older of their two courses. Great condition, especially the greens. Only issues, fairways a little tight with hanging trees. Could use thinning out.

Best of the Best

An absolutely fabulous course. Ranks the best of any course. Tops any public course in the Charlotte area. A must play. Greens and fairways are in excellent condition. I would put greens about 10-11 on speed.

Mountain golf

Great mountain golf course. Amazing conditions. Fun layout with a lot of elevation changes. A little tough to get to as it’s in rural area but well worth the trip. 39$ for 18 holes w a cart!?! A must play

A Real Gem

A true championship course. For the time of year conditions were good and the greens were in excellent condition. Nice challenging layout with 5 sets of tees. Most of the bunkers had soft white sand, they were working on the others for the high season. Good quality golf carts. There is a grill on-site for a quick or relaxing bite. Would play again without hesitation.

Good vibes

Beautiful...played two balls and never rushed at all. Greens look great. Couldn't miss a putt out there. Fairways too. No problems at all. Fun course from the tips...longish but fair.

Great Course - Nice layout

This is a well challenging course with great scenery, especially the back nine. Excellent layout other than possibly #7. Fairways and greens in good condition. Best value and public course in Western North Carolina.

Great Course, On tight side

Nice course, challenging play. Definitely in need of thinning out. Many shots penalized by tight or over hanging trees. Would make the course more playable.
