Great new greens

Course is well maintained and the new greens are very good. Non-members are treated well and can take advantage of the bar/grill area if desired.

Very nice place!

Overall the facilities were great, but 75% of the greens were covered with leaves, making it impossible to putt!

Awesome little find

I would highly recommend this course. I really enjoyed it. Very nice greens...firm but responsive. Some difficult sloping depending on pin placement. I played from the blues and found it to be challenging. Do yourself a favor and go play it....well worth it.

Awesome new greens recently installed.

This is a older course that has gone the extra mile and installed completely new greens. Course has very good layout that isn't very long. Staff is totally awesome and very helpful with tips for first timers to their facility. Looking forward to playing again this year and next when they will get those greens really up to speed. Going to be fun if you like very fast greens like i do!!

Great Course!

We played this course on a friday afternoon and had the course to ourselves. The course was in great shape, greens were a little slow but these are fairly new greens and should speed up as they mature. We were treated as if we were members of the country club, everyone was very helpful since this was our first time playing here. Can't wait to play again! I would recommend to anyone looking for a great course.

Course in perfect condition other than slow greens

Greens were recently redone and were very slow (understandable) Rough was a little severe in that it was difficult to find your ball just off the fairway. A little shorter might help speed up play. There were just 2 of us and the course was deserted, so we got around in just over 3hrs despite looking for balls in the rough. Once they can speed up the greens, this will be a tough test.

wonderful

omg - what a great course. One of the best kept, well-maintained courses in the triad. Truly impressive. We have a special asterisk next to Sapona RIdge. A great course, and we thank both Sapona, and Golfnow for introducing us. Can't wait to hurry back

Nice course that is getting better

Course was recently purchased by Nascar owner Richard Childress. You can see that improvements are under way with new drainage being put in place on some of the greens, and repairs going on on the cart paths. The course has a nice mixture of holes, and the greens are in very good shape. My wife and I played for $11 each with GolfNow. That is a GREAT value for a country club style course. We played on a Wed. at 11:30, and we had the course to ourselves.

this course is has nice facilities

This course is a very nice layout and has some nice greens. But if it rains hard it does not drain very well with alot of holes down in the bottom. Wait a couple of days before to let it dry out.

The course was in great winter condition.

The course was in great winter condition. The greens were fast, but rolled true. Great value for the price paid.

Great facility

Driving range was handy. Staff was helpful. The course lays out well but needs better fairway markings.. Some challenging hole for the first time playing this course since local knowledge would certainly help with course management.

Very fun course.

The course was in great shape and very fun to play with many interesting holes, especially the par 4 16th. The course meanders through a pretty upscale neighborhood and was overall an extremely enjoyable experience. I would recommend it to anyone.

Course is very challenging. Old style country club.

The course was in great condition for the time of year. It is set up like most old style country clubs with most every thing set for a fade. Doesn't play well at all for someone that works the ball right to left. play was extremely slow as we played behind members that wouldn't let anyone play through.

The greens are true and super fast. Be careful not to leave yourself a dangerous second putt.

Sapona Ridge course has undergone a management change and it's for the better. The course is fun to play and is currently in great condition. Greens are super fast and some pin placements are almost impossible if your ball is above the hole. Overall, Sapone Ridge needs to be on every golfer's list of courses to play.

This course is one of my favorites to play in this area

This course as always is in great shape, greens are demanding both in approach shots and putting. Enjoy this course a lot.
