Off the radar gem
This track checks everything off the list... outstanding layout, very challenging, pristine greens, well maintained, scenic, great service/friendly staff, just a great experience! Even happened to rub elbows w the head pro out on the course, gave me a tip on getting out of the rough (which is penal) when it’s sitting down vs fluffy lie sitting up, pretty cool. Very impressed across the board, worth every penny and then some!
Outstanding course in great shape! A awesome experience all around! Keep up the good work!
I’ve lived in Sanford for 3 years now. Ashamed I have never played this course! I was impressed. Normally I balk at the $100+ price tag. I got a “bushwood”feeling looking from the outside in, when I arrived today I was floored. The young lady at check in was very friendly. The range is great, I loved the short game area. Greens were recently sanded but rolled so true and such as snot. I’ll definitely go back, when the deals can be had. The only negative was the group inferring if me who were incredibly slow. I found myself hitting 2-3 balls per hole so I wasn’t wasting time. Other than that, sublime. Now to ply creek!
A True Challenge
The Lake Course is probably the most challenging I’ve ever played. Course in excellent condition. Greens definitely fastest I’ve ever played! Unforgiving rough! Staff very friendly. Eric in the pro shop was very kind and welcoming. Also, spoke with another super friendly grounds crew member while I was warming up on the range.
Greens were almost too fast....almost
Great layout and the course is in perfect shape. Stay below the hole or you will have a few 3 putts
First time playing, did not get to play the 18th hole due to lightning, but this is a great course and in great shape. If you play the correct tee you will have a great time.
Beautiful golf course. Challenging but fair. One of my favorites.
Always love CT Lakes. My only issue today is that the greens were hard and extremely fast. Did not hold well struck irons and downhill putts were impossible. But beautiful and well designed layout.
Very good conditions
Lake course is a beautiful layout and in great condition . Most enjoyable to play
What a waste of time
This course is a cow pasture and a dump. There are no Rangers there are no starters and there are no beverage carts in the price they’re charging makes all of this a true disappointment. There’s very little grass in the fairways but the greens are the only good thing about the place hard and fast. There is not even a bag drop or a sign to let you know where to go and the pro shop expects you just to grab a car go to the parking lot and load up your own bag. Total laziness on their part. There are no marks signs to let you know where number one or number 10 is so I’m having to ask other golfers. The driving range is a small area of mats that was over ran by college kids so I could not even hit a few. The entire experience made me feel like I was in an environment where someone threw a little money at a golf course I had no idea how to run it. It is absolutely not worth the price they charge. As a matter of fact they could not pay me to come back to this crappy little dump. With so many better courses in the area please do not fall into the same trap that I did.
A complete waste of time
Upon arriving there are no signs marking where to go. There is no backdrop. There are no starters, rangers to help speed up the play, or beverage cart. Being my first time here and without direction there’s no way I could know the pro shop was downstairs in the clubhouse and when I finally found it the pro seemed put out by my comment that it was difficult to find him. Then he just gives me a key and says grab a cart and load up my things and go at noon. I had half an hour so I decided to go to the range to hit a few. The range is this tiny little area off mats there was completely full of college kids who would not give up a spot. The course layout is nothing to brag about I played the lake course. The greens were fast which I like but the fairways are all very tight lies since there’s barely any grass anywhere. The pace was terrible since apparently Saturday is when all of the retired women play who never bothered to learn proper etiquette. The point is they could not pay me to come back to this dump. The course is a cow pasture and the staff worthless. And THAT is the memory etched into my brain
Value for the money
Nice course but I’m not thrilled with a cost discrepancy that was notice upon arrival. I bought as a hot deal for $90/player, the person I went with was unaware that I used GolfNow. When he went in and spoke to the pro shop they told him it was $70/person before I interjected. I’m more than a little frustrated with the price difference enough so that I will now check with golf courses before booking on GolfNow and do not recommend the course based on this reason, value of customer.
Fun Course to Play (LAKE)
I really enjoyed playing at Lake side (they have two 18 holes)
Personally, I liked the Lake course better.
Greens were very fast.
Course views are great.
Sand conditions was A ++
Must play if UNDER $50
Great layout and greens running a 12 easily. My only complaint is there is no drinking water available on the course. Course is in perfect shape and the pace of play was fast.
Beware of the greens!!!
Tricky greens with invisible breaks everywhere, definitely a members course
Beautiful course - Very challenging
The course was in great shape especially for the fall season. The course was very challenging as indicated in the slopes rating. Great views of the lake from a number of the tees.
The staff was very friendly and helpful and the coarse was well maintained. Just a great overall experience and value. Would highly recommend any one visiting the sand hills of N.C. to include this coarse as a must play. The visuals around the coarse are very tranquil. Will play again when I returned to the area.
