Course was in great shape. Greens were great. They have done a great job maintaining this course considering the recent heat and lack of rain. I have played other courses in the area that have lost their greens.

Overall very good experience; course was in good shape and place of play was better than expected. My only concern was the congestion of tee boxes and greens on the first four holes.

Donald Ross will test you on the front nine, watch out for the turtle back greens and good speed on the greens as well. The back nine while not as acclaimed as the front will test you on long par 3’s and a monster 18th par 5. Have fun as I always do.

Booked through Golfnow for a "HotDeal" as the last single of a foursome at 9 AM. I arrived at 8:40 and for some reason the started sends me out with a group after 9 AM and send me out with a twosome who are only playing 9 holes. What is that about?? I drove 45 minutes one way to play there. The started was like wait here, i will get you with somebody.. As I watch the other 3 from Golfnow 9 am tee time tee off. I ended up leaving after 9 because play was slow and I would have been alone stuck waiting 10+ minutes between shots. The course is nice but there is no point if it is not operated correctly.

We visited Asheville for a few days and stopped at Monroe CC on our way back to Pinehurst where we live. We stopped at Monroe after reading different reviews of courses that were on our route back to Pinehurst and were pleasantly surprised to play a course that we both enjoyed. Both nines couldn’t have been more different, but were equally in great shape. Only negative was the snack bar which didn’t have food at the time we were going on the course late morning, but we didn’t mind at all after all the good at this venue. If Monroe wasn’t 1 1/2 hours from our home, I would be a regular there.

I would first like to say that everything about this course was great including the staff, pace of play, and value for the money.

However, multiple times during the round I noticed the golf carts are gas powered, and someone who struggles like myself with PTSD sounds eerily similar to a gunshot. This is the only thing I ask that you change with your course because had someone been with me and seen the way I reacted every time I heard the backfire from the golf carts it would’ve been quite embarrassing .

I just wanted to give you an honest review, as I’m not sure many golfers would let you know this and the serious dangers that it can impose.

Again everything was five stars except my overall rating I just ask that you please invest into your golf carts and make them electric or to where they do not backfire as someone who struggles with PTSD, golfing is one of our ways of leisure and enjoyment in the world .

I have read most of the reviews and have wanted to play here for a while. The course is a nice player friendly course with some very challenging greens. The back nine has an extremely pleasant layout in a definative parkland style.

I was greatly disappointed in this course. During booking it said aeration in process. I understand that needs to be done from time to time to have a quality course conditions. But they closed the back nine. Had to play front twice. Was cart path only and staff said due to rain. Course was very dry. They sent out four singles in a row which made play very slow. For a country club they didn’t even have logo balls. I drove for an hour to play this course. Was not worth it.

The greens rolled true and smooth. The par 3s had some challenge. The overall course was short yet demanding due to the size of the greens on the front. Number 3 particularly was impressive for only 335 yards. I’d play here often to fine tune my wedge game and par 3 strategy. I’ll be back.

It’s hard to hit the greens in regulation but that’s part of the fun. Tight course it in the fairway and you’ll score

When I pulled into the parking lot, it was empty. I was greeted by the ranger who told me a high school team would be there at 3:30, (our tee time was 3:40), so he told us to start on #10. We did and we played the back 9 in 1 hour and 10 mins. When we rounded the turn. We played the first 2 holes perfectly fine, but as soon as we hit hole 3, we looked over the fairway and saw 10 high school kids hacking away at their shots. We ended up having to skip 2 holes to avoid them. Avoid the course during the hours of 3:30-6. There was very poor planning starting us on 10, and then have us run into the kids on hole 3. The shop was closed at 6:30 when we got back. So I couldn't use the facilities; this was sad, cause I had to go...overall, the greens were silky smooth and fast, but the customer service sucked

I really liked this course!

I was shocked how nice the condition was considering how bad every other course is this time of year.

Half the price of Ballantyne yet twice as nice.

I tip my cap to the groundskeeper.

I did not get to play all 18 however due to some private morning outing followed by afternoon school kids playing.

They should not sell tee times in between events like that.

I was impressed with on-course restroom and many MANY water stations.

Other golf courses should learn a lesson from Monroe!

The back nine is way better in my opinion. The front nine's layout is fairly pedestrian with challenging Donald Ross greens. The Tom Jackson-designed back nine is far more enjoyable and holes are much more unique. If I could play the back nine twice, it would be a much better experience.
