Good layout, average condition
Bones of this course (the Creek) is very good and greens were in good shape but other aspects of course conditions needed some attention. One expects better at this rate. We played in 4 hours, not bad for a Sunday, but waited on nearly every hole. No Marshalls. At this rate, I recommend playing elsewhere until management figures out the maintenance piece.
Course was in great shape and we were surprised nobody pressed our group from behind. Course layout was challenging for our skill level, but still very playable for high handicappers. High Bermuda first cut is thick enough to hide balls just off fairways and its difficult to get the club on the ball from these lies. Bring your own or buy drinks and snacks at the start though, because the turn doesn't bring you back by the clubhouse.
First Time at the Creek side
Love the course. Unfortunately due to rain previous days, it was cart path only.
The women's tee Box is not set up fairly if you cannot hit your driver more then 200 yrds.
The Lake side is more "ideal" and appropriate for women's tee.
Both Courses are Beautiful and cart seats are very compy. It was worth the cost since we did have a coupon.
Beautiful and a great layout
The course was wet but what course isn't, this is beautiful course and if you hit it straight you will love it regardless of distance. If you don't like either the creek or lake courses you don't like golf.
Course layout is nice. Tee boxes can stand a little work. Overall great experience nice fairways
Great golf course
Very fun course with some great holes. Will play here again.
Don’t miss the fairway
Course is very nice. Greens are fast but also forgiving. All of the holes are either guarded by woods, water, or houses. Not the course to play if your are having a big miss. Greens were smaller and mostly guarded by bunkers. Bring your A game when you come here. The practice facilities were a nice surprise as I didn’t know range balls were included in my tee time!
Great track- nice complement to the Lakes Course
Love both courses- lakes is my preferred on views alone. Apart from the views on the Lakes- the Creek may actually be a better layout with more interesting holes. Carolina Trace is top-notch- well worth it from my home here in Pinehurst- Love these 2 gems
Carolina Trace Creek
Great layout and extremely challenging. Every hole was “wow, I have to hit this shot?!” So much fun and tested every part of my game.
Played the creek course. Course was in very good condition and on a Sunday afternoon my group was the only ones on the whole creek course (Lake course looked fullish) I can not complain about the overall conditional at all. Course is your old school 70’s-80’s country club layout. Plays fairly tight with small greens. I could have kept the driver in my bag for a better score. Plenty of sand traps on the course to protect it from anyone trying to overpower. Knowing the course is highly beneficial for going low. Was disappointed the restaurant/ food area was closed on a Sunday. I will be back sooner than later to enjoy a relaxing day
Ask before booking which course you will play
We were played he Creek Course. I think my group was the only one playing that course that Saturday. That tells me that their best course is the Lake. Golf Now does not give you that option of booking which course you want to play or it did and we did not know better. Great greens in great condition. Course layout is challenging but playable. Tee box need some grooming. We will come back but to play the Lake course which is those amazing holes you see when coming into the golf course.
Incredible course only outdone by the staff
Have played this course twice now and have to say both times the fairways and greens have been in impeccable shape. Greens rolling at a 12, fairways manicured to perfection. There are 2 different courses here, Lake/Creek course and both present their own challenges. For beauty but very tight fairways the Creek course is unbeatable. One of the prettiest courses I've played in awhile. The Lake course is a little more open but still has some scenic holes.
Now, the true gem of this course is the staff!!! From the girls inside seeing you off, to the landscapers who always wave and stop to say hi, I have not found a better staff at any course I've played. The most impressive person that I highly recommend you seek out and talk to is the GM/Pro Ray. This gentleman was so accommodating and genuinely nice that he made my party feel like family. Took the time my first time out really explain the course, greens how to play it and a plethora of other knowledge you just don't get when casually playing a course. Ray is the backbone of this Institilution and every other club from Augusta to Pebble Beach should strive to have someone like him at the helm.
So thank you Ray. We will be seeing you again next season.
Beautiful course and first rate professional staff
Played Carolina Trace for the first time with my best friend. The course was in great shape and we'll maintained. Ray Reyes, the Director of Golf/GM and his staff were amazing. They truly made our group feel life we were coming home. The Pro Shop was fully stocked with the latest equipment. I highly recommend checking out Trace and Ray and his staff.
Although the course was in typical early spring condition, there were none of the standard amenities we expected; no water coolers, no place to get food or drinks at turn, no cart people with food or drinks, no ball washers, no coolers. Also, there were several people out “spraying boundaries” and we had to hit into or around them on 12 of the 18 holes we played. This was quite annoying and I still can’t figure out why they felt the need to do this in front of where we were shooting all day.
