Wow! Great Experience

GREENS ARE GREAT! Fantastic golf course. Even with the windy conditions the grounds crew had the fairways and greens cleared of leaves. Granted there were some that fell during the round but all things considered very impressed with that Had some friends say the greens were not great but found them to be pristine. I will be back and great staff in the pro shop. Also a ranger that was an older gentlemen really made me feel at home.

Great Course!!

Loved course, challenging but very fair for the average golfer. No 2 holes close to being the same, great layout with some openness and tree's.
Would recommend to any golfer.

Disappointed

This course is a very good layout and fun to play. We play here several times a year when visiting friends in the neighborhood. The greens however have taken a beating this summer and are in horrible shape compared to other courses in the area from either disease, heat or both. No way they should be charging full rate to play here and it shows with the lack of players. Saturday afternoon and hardly anyone there. If they cant get the greens back they won't get anyone there to play. It's a shame with the great staff and amenities here. I hope for the beat for them.

Thank you for coming out to Greensboro National. You are correct on us getting hit with a disease called Nematodes. Fortunately, we caught it very quickly but the heat of Summer is slowing the growth on these areas on Hole #2, #3, and #10. We have seeded the affected areas and can't wait for the cooler temperatures which will speed up the process. Thank you for the comment on our great staff and amenities. We take great pride in Greensboro National and can assure you that we strive to be the best golf course in the area.

One Awesome Golfcourse

I've played a lot of golf courses in the Carolina's including the Pinehurst area, and this has got to be one of my favorites now. I will definitely be recommending this to other golfer friends that didn't have the opportunity to play today. Course, proshop and grill were in immaculate condition. As Arnold says, "I'll Be Back!"

Been a while . .

It's been 20+ years since I played this course. Lot more houses have been built!
As I remember, driving can be a little tight. If your drive tends to wonder, take the 3 wood. It won't hurt you!
Most of the tee boxes and fairways were in very nice condition. A few bare spots here and there, but 90% nice!
The greens are a different matter. We played Aug 25. Almost every green had damage, I assume from too much rain. Big splotches of no grass on the green. They had punched a few weeks ago, and they were pretty much recovered. But those splotches . . .
We love the course, but will not be back this year. I don't see the greens healing for months. Definitely not worth the $55 rate.

Unusually poor greens

First, let me be fair. Greensboro National is a great course, typically in great condition. However, they have completely lost their greens. If the greens are in terrible shape how can you score? I have played several other courses in the area and the greens are in great shape. With Greensboro National being one of the more expensive public courses in the area one would expect a course in better condition. I would not recommend playing at this time. Once the greens have recovered Greensboro National is a worthy of play.

Great course

First time playing, and found this course in great condition. Held up with all the rain recently very well and only had 2 holes at cart path only. One fairway seems lost, but didn't take away from the great tees and greens and most fairways. Course was packed but pace was reasonable. Drink girl and Marshall checking in several times. I have a bushnell but the cart gps was a nice addition for a first timer. Great deal off teeoff
