Hidden Gem

Have played many of the local courses and resorts and at the last minute decided to play Talamore. Very friendly staff and despite heavy rainfall the days before the course was in remarkable condition. Greens were incredible! Fast and true, the best I’ve played regardless of price. Our group will definitely be back to play .

Amazing day

I have played many “high end” courses, and I must say this was one of if not the best one. Had an eight o’c Tee time, and it was a little chilly but a perfect morning.

The course was in surprisingly good shape after a week of rain, greens were quick, but rolled true. If I had to point out one negative was that there seemed to be a little confusion between the guy who put the bags on the cart and the starter as to what position the pins were that day.

Other than that, could not ask for a better day.

Will definitely be back

A little disappointing

I played this course two years ago, and the conditions were much better.

This course has the potential but the tee boxes were garbage. Way overpriced, but a tremendous staff

Visitor from Jacksonville Fl

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. I was visiting friends in Greensboro, and wanted to play something different this time. Love the rolling, hilly fairways and the course scenery. Not often you see an Alpaca on a golf course! Greens rolled phenomenally well.

Booked Talamore as a Hotdeal

12:00 tee time. A little hot but we tee'd off exactly at noon. Staff very friendly, course in great shape. Greens held a good shot and putted true. Pace of play 4hr 2 mins.

We will be back.

Talamore Round on track to exceed 6 plus hours

We arrived to a packed parking lot and practice area. The course was also filled with golfers. I asked the office staff if they were hosting an outing and was told no. While waiting on the first tee , the starter informed us that they had one group of 170 golfers from Virginia who had gone off both the first tee and the 10th tee. It took us a total of 22 minutes to complete the first hole . When we arrived at hole #2 there was a fivesome still waiting to tee off ..At that point we turned around and went to play a Pinehurst course which we finished 18 holes in 3hours and 18 minutes . Please call me to discuss this experience.

Even for a hot deal, they are stealing from you

What a disaster. All the greens were punched a week ago and were slow and bumpy. And for the past few days they have been punching all the fairways and tee boxes. The tee boxes have zero grass on them, so your hitting off dirt on every hole. When you hit the ball in the fairways it bounces off clods of dirt and grass so thick that I actually had trouble finding my ball on 3 holes. What really bothered me about this was that it WAS NOT posted in GOlf Now! No aeriarion alert. But that’s not even the worst part about playing this course.

I arrived an hour and fifteen minutes early for my round to find the parking lot empty and only one drunk guy in the bar/restaurant. After putting and streatching for 30 minutes, not on group tees off, and the parking lot was still empty. I walked back the the pro shop and asked the guy if I should just tee off since the place as so empty, and he said no! You paid online at golf now and even though there was literally NOONE else there, I had to wait an hour for me tee time to go off or pay an additional $25 dollars to go off right away. I couldn’t believe it, but I told him that I’d sit there for the hour. After ten minutes of sitting in a cart, passing time and getting more mad by the second, the pro sop guy opens the side door and yells”Go”! I couldn’t believe this guy was actually yelling at me, I’m fifty five years old, not 6. So I just staired at him and shock and he did it again! “Go!” Unbelievable. I was totally blown away, no one has talked to me like that in at least 30 years. Then he did it again!!! This time he says “Go! Go tee off from the first tee!” I couldn’t even speak I was so surprised, I just drove off.

My suggestion to you is, DO NOT PAY the $75 they want to play this course under any circumstances. If you get a hot deal and pay $55, make sure you find the course conditions with them before you pay. I strongly believe the literally stole my money today. Terrible value for the money.

Talamore has a strict tee time reservation policy for all of our bookers, whether it be online or over the phone, and apologize that this was an inconvenience during your visit. Our Pro Shop Staff has done a great job of complimenting our online aerification advisories by informing all of our golfers upon arrival that the course was aerified, but we are sorry to hear of the confusion that our putting greens were different conditions compared to the rest of the course. We would love to hear more about your experience, and any other thoughts on our layout or facilities if you would like to reach out to our General Manager to discuss this further. He can be reached at 910-692-5884. Thank you.

Per the courses comments below, there was no aerification advisory, none. If there had been I would have booked elsewhere. And what made this course a terrible experience, beyond the terrible conditions, was the incredibly rude staff. My comments stand, I would avoid this course at all costs, especially since there are so many other outstanding courses in the area that treat their customers with a base level of kindness and respect.

Well Conditioned Beast

Hot deal tee time of July 4 was a bargain. Greens had recent been plugged, but were relatively smooth.

Outstanding conditioning otherwise, but keep in mind, this is a beast. Jumps on you quickly on the first two holes, only a couple of breather holes.

High handicaper's nightmare!
