Shaggy fairways, not kept

It hadn’t rained in 2 days and the course was bone dry but they made it cart path only. They never checked on the conditions.

The rough was 5-6” inches in places. Twice the balls rolled off the fairway and couldn’t be found. Twiice a chip that went over the green took five minutes to find. Some bunkers had no sand.

No one was wearing masks in the pro shop.

PGA should be ashamed of this staff.

Horrible Pro Shop Staff

My golf foursome, along with probably 6 other groups, all arrived at this golf course on a beautiful 80 degree Saturday morning only to find out that the course was closed after driving over an hour to play this course. Pro Shop staff were completely rude and disrespectful in their response on how all of these groups “should have called.”

I have played golf for over 25 years and have never seen this... ever. I will never come back to this course and will NOT recommend it to any person that wants to play golf in the Lenoir, NC area to get a little mountain golf in.

Fun Course

I have been wanting to play here for a while and after seeing they had hosted a CGA championship recently I decided to book a time. The front nine was an interesting layout with many elevation changes and some narrow landing areas. The back nine was fairly flat and wide open but still had quality golf holes. The fairways and tee boxes were in good shape and the rough was light and not very penalizing. The greens were in great shape but a little on the slow side. They could have been left that way because of the hot weather. Be sure to say "Hi" to the gentleman who lives on the left of the 10th fairway! If you hit in a ball in his yard he is standing guard so you can't enter and retrieve it!

Cedar Rock

Overall course was in great shape. Played blue tees. Beautiful scenery and views. Course laid out to suit golfers of all abilities. Greens rolled faster than most i have played recently which was nice. A few bad spots here and there in fairways but did not take away from my experience there at all today. All staff probably one of nicest overall I have had the pleasure of meeting. Super friendly.

Cedar Rock

I was extremely pleased with my round at Cedar Rock. My son had checked the website before we played, and said that the course was rated #3 course in NC in 1970. I can see how that was true.The course is difficult, with all terrains imaginable throughout. The greens are huge, with perfect grass and quite fast. Water comes into play. Traps are well maintained. My son and I were a twosome, with him playing the blue tees (6600) yards, and me the green (5600). We were both challenged, shooting mid-80's. Not bad for 1st time around the tract.

Be on your toes

Cedar Rock is in excellent shape and not overpriced like many mountain courses in summer. What it does have in common with the others is tricky greens and fairways that require a fair bit of precision. No. 5 and 12 will get your attention. All in all, I wish it were closer to my summer home.

Still Got It

They have fast bent grass greens in great shape, good fairways and tee boxes. This course is in great shape with a good layout, beautiful views, and just a really good course in really good shape. Requires well struck shots to shoot a good round. Good mix of easy and hard holes and just a joy to play. I recommend this course 100 percent.

Poor Management on Tee Times

One of the best nicest courses in this area. Only problem is every time I play here, we never tee off on time and they seem to have a problem “sneaking” to many people off without tee times. Took over 5 hours to play 18. Management needs to step it up.

Nice

Nice course. The day me and a buddy played it had rained the previous night and most of the morning so the course was wet. But that didn’t effect our day. Once we started the sun came out and it was an enjoyable round. Great course for the price. Would play again!

Would recommend!

It was good to play A different course. It was a bit muddy out as it has been raining a lot and started on #10, but each hole was a different challenge and the scenery was great to look at. People let us play through with no problem. We would definitely play here again when it’s greener!

Hidden gem

This course had a great layout and friendly staff. Course was soaked and freshly mowed when I played. The grass clippings made it hard to find balls that plugged into the fairway. All in all, good time and a great layout through the foothills. Would definitely like to play again with different course conditions.
