Golfed on March 28, 2018 for the first time at this course and enjoyed. So, we booked a Hot Deal round for the following day. Course was in decent shape considering the time of year.. Tend to think it will be a beautiful green course by May. If visiting in the area, we would return to this course.

Is love to come back later in the season. Unfortunately I played after several days of rain and on a cool windy day. Great layout and even though the course had seen a lot of rain in early March, it was in great condition all things considered.

the worst thing (and this isn't bad) was that the ground was wet and it was cart path only. The greens were really nice, it was just great when you didn't have to walk far from the cart path! The ground was soft but not soggy (still, it was a good idea to keep the carts on the paths) and the course was a fair test. I like the people in the clubhouse who are very customer friendly. It's a great place to play.

From the parking lot to the the first tee, everything was nice but not over the top. Staff was friendly and helpful. The course has a good layout, and provides a good challenge without being gimmicky. Six sets of tees should accommodate any golfer. The condition was great considering it was December in New Bern. Greens were firm, yet still held shots reasonably and were smooth putting.

Well organized course and overall it was in very good condition. Did not find great variety in the holes and few got you really thinking. Could not walk, as is usual , so probably not going back.

I enjoyed the round. It was cloudy, but did not start raining until I was on the 18th. It was challenging but not so much that it was disappointing. The course and greens were in great shape and the clubhouse amenities were good. I felt as though is was a great course for my skill level. I will definitely play again.

I love this course! The staff is really great. The layout can be challenging but not punishing. The greens are in awesome shape, the fairways are super lush. It is the best kept course in town. You have a wide selection of tees to choose from and can accommodate the course to your level. The back tees challenge a longer hitter where you can play yellow or red tees and find a nice round awaiting. The Bermuda greens are fast down grain (as they should be) but roll true and you can hold them with a solid approach. I come back time and again. Always a joy to play.
