Very Good Course. They could cut the ruff a little lower so you can at least find your ball.

Good layout

Enjoyable round of golf. Not as much water as I was anticipating. Rough was brutal so make sure to put your drives in the fairway. Feel like it’s a little over priced though. Hard to see me paying that again. But was a fun track

One of the prettiest courses we have ever played. Greens were extremely fast and rough thick. Very playable, but rewarding when you learned some its intricacies. Worth going back with a little knowledge gained from our first trip around.

Lake at Carolina Trace CC

Great golf course, everything top notch, felt like playing at a private course. Huge clubhouse, range balls included. Lake course is in all around great condition. Layout is awesome, every hole is different and challenging in its own right. Course is pretty much in front of you except #12 par four dogleg left, keep you tee shot as left as possible close to or over the bunker. Amazing set of par threes, good memory that I 2 putted all of them for par. Hope to play the other course someday.

Me and my buddies love to take the short drive from Fuquay-Varina to Carolina Trace. The two courses are challenging and the greens are amazing!

Nice layout

Course was in great shape. Fairways well kept and greens were fast. They had considerable sand on them the only negative thing I have to say. Would definitely play again.

Better value for the money than Southern Pines or Pinehurst

Course is challenging for any type of golfer. Course could be better suited with more amenities. I felt the layout was enjoyable definitely need to ride in the cart. It’s worth the drive from the Raleigh or Pinehurst area if you’re looking to save some money.

Amazing all around experience

When we arrived at Carolina Trace Country Club, we were greeted with smiles and hellos even though we were complete strangers. The pro shop has everything a golfer could ask for. The lake course at CTCC is by far one of the most beautiful courses i have ever played and the difficulty is perfect for someone like myself. A hole In one on 8 topped off my trip with an amazing experience that only CTCC could make. The food in the club house at Jone’s pub is accompanied by their amazing waitstaff, shoutout to Jenna. If you’re looking for an amazing experience this is the place for that.

Great all around

Carolina Trace was one of the best courses that I have ever played. The staff was great and everyone was very friendly. It was definitely worth the drive from Michigan.
