I've played this course several times over the years and the new ownership has done a great job of put this course in tip

top shape. The ball sets up in the fairway and the greens roll true.

Everything was fine except for pace of play. Not sure if people just don't know golf etiquette anymore or golf courses don't have rules anymore. I was a twosome stuck behind a slow playing twosome who was following and waiting on a FIVESOME. Not sure when fivesome were allowed to play. I'm fine with it as long as they don't hold up other groups. Having to wait on literally every shot is ridiculous and having to wait on the tee for 10 minutes at a time is uncalled for. Ended skipping two holes just to get past the slow groups only to be held up by another slow threesome that wouldn't let us go through. Other than that I enjoyed the course. It was in great shape for this time of year and in better shape than in past years.

Great layout. Course is fairly challenging, but offers multiple tees for all skill sets to enjoy. Greens aren't the quickest, but they are smooth and roll true, and also very receptive to approach shots. If you are considering this course, it is worth the drive.

Course was in excellent shape. Front nine are not as challenging as the back nine but shot placement still matters. As usual, each time I have played Pudding Ridge it has a lot of play, but they do a fantastic job keeping the course in great shape.

First time here . We all loved it !

Wide open and green fairways .

Wide open approach shots also. This course reminded me of Possum Trot in myrtle beach.

The staff was excellent

There was a back up on hole 1 so we jumped on 10 and saw no one !

Them went back to 1 and it was wide open!

We will be back ! I like it better than tanglewood and oak valley!

Pudding Ridge is a terrific golf course. It's certainly not for beginners, as I had my wife and daughter with me. While the fairways are wide, it is pretty long for a novice. The green complexes are excellent, and the terrain makes for a wonderful challenge. I will be back to play this course again..

There's a good bit of water. It is easily one of the prettiest layouts in the Piedmont of NC, which is saying a lot. We played shortly after the greens were aerated, but I can tell they will be very quick once they heal!

The pro shop staff would not give you a golf cart until 20 minutes before your tee time. This means you need to carry your bag around if you want to hit balls or put. Very inconvenient. This was a Saturday. Most golf clubs have starters on the weekends. This one doesn't. This is a bad way to control the starting times.

As for the golf course, except for a number of bare/thin spots on the fairways/tees and the greens being recently (late) punched, it was okay and our group had fun. Tees seemed way up from what I remember from previous visits to Pudding Ridge. However, for the first time in my many years of utilizing Golf Now, the very grumpy old fella behind the counter informed me that keys for the carts couldn't be released until 15 minutes before tee time. What??? Why???

It's a good value for the hot deal. The greens still haven't recovered from being done. Went out there as a single it was done with the round in 3 hours so It moved at a good pace. overall a good value for the money great value for a hot deal!

I tried to check into the course 50 minutes early to load the cart and hit the putting green/chipping green. My playing partner doesn't walk easily and I wanted to meet him in the parking lot when he arrived. I was informed that they would not give me a cart until 5 minutes before my scheduled tee time to prevent us from going off early. I had no intention of going off early and simply telling me that I was not allowed to go early should have sufficed. We could use the putting green/chipping green but had to walk with our clubs. When our tee time arrived, the course was stacked up on the first tee with a single, our twosome, a foursome, and another twosome. I think this situation could have been handled better. Love this course, it is my Go-to course. Pace of play was under four hours.
