Nice Local Course
A nice local course to keep your skills in tune. Friendly atmosphere. I wish there was a place to warm up but I understand in this region real estate is a premium.
Wished I played in early in the summer.
The greens had been aerated 10-14 days earlier and where no where near being grown back.. Very bumpy .Fairways were rock hard and spotty. I bet they were nice earlier in the summer when they were more lush.
Demanding Athletic and Accuracy
This is a demanding layout for the average golfer. Accurate tee shots are required. You must be in good physical shape to play this course.
Maybe recommend later
Arrived early and the staff got us out right away. The greens have just been punched. Big punch too. The front played about average time. The back we caught up with a group of 5 and a group of 6. Came to a dead stop.
This would be a fun layout if they had better grooming. First time is a bit confusing where to hit you’re ball because of blind hills.
this place is a kick in the pants!!!
i have played this place a few times and it is a fun golf track! not super hard but super fun! it is on the easy side but i would drive an hour again to play here anytime!!!
The course isn’t worth the money and the layout is awful. Power piles in the middle of a fairway. Huge drop offs from the tee boxes, hard to tell where the greens are. It should cost $25 for a round.
Super Fun. Perfect greens.
The clubhouse worker allowed my 3 threesome to go off about an hour early to beat the rain. That was a awesome way to get a great first impression. We knew going in the course would be a shorter layout but had no idea how fun it was to play. Greens were perfect bent grass but super slow from the 3 consecutive rainy night. If your expected a US Open type challenging course this isn’t for you. If your looking for a fun set up, with quick pace and good conditions. This is your place. Some of the navigation between hole was tricky and we even played the wrong hole once. Tees and greens are tight. We will be back soon.
Never looked better
Course is in best shape it has ever been it. Have played the course for several years and it has never looked better.
Great conditions, poorly managed
Had a specific tee time. Arrived early and was on the tee box on time. Not sure if things were just way behind or if they were letting everyone walk in and play, but there were two groups waiting to tee off in front of me. Then there was a group who finished 18 and walked right up to the tee box and tees off again on 1 after telling the group in front of me “we just need to get this hole finished and we’ll be out of your way, so if you don’t mind going back to your cart..?” Everyone was shocked. Play was incredibly slow overall. Course was in great shape, but lots of blind shots being hit into valleys, creeks, cut through roads, over hills, etc. which I’m personally just not a fan of... half the greens are flat as a board, the other half were like putting on a mound or in a bowl... very odd pin placements. Overall as mentioned the course was in great shape but it’s not a course I’d recommend, even at a fairly low price.
Nice layout. The course needs to be mowed. I lost 3 balls that I drove in the middle of the fairway. Compared to the last two courses I played(Maggie Valley and Cummings Cove) this was by far in the worse shape. Not worth the money I paid.
Beautiful Mountain Layout
Lake Junaluska is a short, moderately easy course with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and the lake. Perfect for average to short hitters, generous fairways generally lead to smaller, tough-to-hit greens. The course is in great shape, and after aeration a few weeks ago, the greens putt smooth and true. With par at 68, there’s still a few par 5s to test your fairway woods. The course layout itself is beautiful, as most of it is natural landscape, with very few houses visible. If you happen to be in the area, don’t pass this gem up!
This course offers a great value for the price to play, and is in fair condition as of right now. I have played this course numerous times and it has helped me improve my golf game, being as I just started playing this past summer. My only complaint for this course is that the woman who works the front desk from time to time is the rudest and most stuck up woman I have ever encountered. She doesn't seem to care what the customer thinks, she just wants your money. I will most likely play here again, but I will be spending a lot more money at other courses in the area from here on out.
Fun course but...
I have played golf at Lake Junaluska numerous times and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I just took up golfing a few months ago and it's nice to have a cheaper course to play at to begin to improve my golf game. My only complaint is that the lady at the front desk who is there from time to time, is a massive jerk. You would think that being a christian group owned course they would think to hire someone that wasn't so stuck up and rude. Other than that, the course is great for the price.
Too much for course!
Course it self is fine, a lot of blind spots. The Green’s have been worked up and very rough to put. I believe a course should discount or inform players when this has been done.
