This course was terrible

If you are thinking about playing a round of golf here, I urge you not to. This "course" feels nothing like a golf course. The fairways are rough and the rough is unplayable. If there is any water on this course it will be impossible to make good shots from the fairway. The cup at every green was full to the top with water and it hadn't rain much at all recently. There are so many better courses in the Asheville area that will play much better for the same price.

I wish i had read this before I wasted my money. Ive played bad courses before, but this has to be the absolute worst ever. And they advertise it as a resort! the best thing i can say was the layout was good, everything else was horrible

4/9 greens are toilets

4 of 9 greens have bite the dust...local management continues to properly care for this sweet layout...Holiday inn /Crown has embarrassed it self on the quality of their venue...still no sign that the course even exist.....can only image what the hotel operation looks like if it mirrors the course....

Not worth time or money

Let's begin with finding the proshop. No signs atva "resort" but shared with the tennis and spa. Was warned about the 1st and 9th green. Should have been closed. Tee boxes so long even teed up balls got lost. Fairways long as ruff, can loose balls there also. Every green had problems. The course design was a after thought. Short as an executive. Its a par 34, should be 33. 2 holes out of the 9 worth playing( if don't mind a train going through) distance marked incorrect. Now I played well but not a fun course. I played for the discount price of 2 buckets of balls which would've been more fun. Even if you stayed there, leave the clubs in the car and use a frisbee. That's what the course should be used for.

Great value, a couple of greens in terrible shape

Some holes were great, some greens were in terrible shape. Great price. Layout was fine. Course is short, but still challenging.

Value missing these days

I normally love this course. You can always play at the pace you want. I have played here almost 10 times this year and it has been great. Yesterday was the complete opposite. I had to stop after 9 because of my displeasure with the state of the greens. Half were so burnt out, you had about a 4 foot window to land in to putt. I will go back and play again, but not until I am assured the problems have been rectified.

like playing in a cow pasture.

Fairways were clumps of grass , uneven and long. Sad when you are in the fairway and have trouble locating the ball. Greens were in good shape but very slow due to not being cut.

Can't tell Fairway from the rough

First let me say we had fun. But I am reviewing this course based on the conditions. There really are no fairways. On Hole 3, it was so swampy and smelly where the fairway would usually be that it was almost impossible to play. On other holes, it wasn't just that it was grown up, but there were weeds growing in the fairway. It was just not well cared for. So if you are just looking for a place to hit balls and are in the area- it is OK. But if you are seriously playing, then stay away.

Great course to learn and practice playing golf

It use to be 18 holes, but it is now 9 holes. The first tee is quite a ways from the check in desk, so walkers will have a nice walk up hill to the first tee. It is a nice course to warm up and get some exercise.

Great value. Fun course

Awesome value. Mature course with stream running throughout. Pleasant stroll in nature. Perhaps availability on LastMinute means "uncrowded"? If so, additional value to the site.

Not a bad 9

Fairways were non-existent, backyard grass. Greens were suprisingly good. Soggy conditions made for less than ideal approach shots. For the price and only an hour to play it was worth it.
