Great Course!

Got a great deal on GolfNow and my son and I played 18 holes in 3 hours! Course is in great shape and pace of play was outstanding. Definitely recommend Boone Golf Course to anyone in the area, especially if you can get a good deal. Regular rates are a little high, but course is worth it.

Great Mountain course

don't get to play much as I do not live in the area but course was in excellent condition, maybe a few tee boxes could have used a little TLC but fairways and greens were in great shape. Was a little concerned off the first tee when we saw a number of walkers ahead of us ( groups and singles) but pace of play was never an issue until the 17th hole. Will definitely be back to play

They overbook and it causes really slow play

First our disappointment....... Only got in 14 holes as the pace of play was incredibly slow. When we got to #6 on the front side (they put us off on #10 first) we caught the group in front of us and realized the problem. There was a group of 8 young men, all teeing off togetther and playing the hole as an eight some. Several of the players would hit their drive poorly, go out and pick their ball up then bring it back to the tee and proceeded to tee off a second time. I counted 12 tee shots including their mulligans before we could tee off. We could not believe our eyes........It was obvious that it would be dark before we could finish. So we packed it up and called it a day after 14 holes. As we drove to the club house we noticed a five some(ahead of the eight some) that were playing the hole in clear view of the pro shop. Rather disgusted I went into the pro shot to complain. I was told by the pro there were no eight somes on the course even though I had just witnessed all eight tee off together. I guess he thought I was blind. I pointed out the window to 5 players on the below green. Their excuse was the course was crowded today and the pace of play was slow. I asked why we never saw a range the whole day - again no answer. It is very unfortunate that those who run the course from the pro shop have an "I really don't give a darn" attitude when valid concerns are brought to their attention. I give the course superintendent an "A" as the course is in good shape. The pro a "F-" Come on you are better than that fellows. I hope the people these men work for see this review and explain proper and acceptable golf etiquette because it was not in evidence today.

Outstanding public course with excellent greens. Beautiful views of mountains and trees all around . Challenging but fair golf course with some holes in the valley and others on the hillside. Highly recommend.

Best in the area, for the general public

Beautiful course and fun to play. Summer fees are pretty high so I only play when I can get a hot deal on Golf Now. Busy yesterday but still played in less than four hours. Take a drink. No drink cart and restaurant isn't open early. Walking gives you an extra workout. Flatlanders like me will find the greens very tricky to read.

Walk a Mountain Course? Yes, indeed.

Great layout in a wonderful setting. Couple of blind shots, but many beautiful shots onto and into some very tricky surfaces. Greens quick and undulating. Pay attention to the mountain. Fun, great staff, good food, and you can walk it. Play it.

A beautiful course in the Highlands

Boone is a must go play place. We come to Boone each July and it is always our first choice. It is a public golf course with a private course feel. Not excessively hilly as many courses are in this area. Play it and I can almost promise yo it will become a favorite.

One of the Best

Boone Golf Club is one of my favorites. I wish I lived closer so that I could play it more than once a year. Its a great layout that will challenge you but not so bad it makes you miserable. The course is in a valley so its really very flat except for holes 10-12. There is usually plenty of room to hit you ball and get away with a bad shot. The defense of the course is the greens which are generally big, have a large amount of break, and roll really smooth and pretty fast. Missing the green makes for a tough up and down in some spots. (I managed to find most of those it seemed) The pace of play is going to be slow-but not terrible on the weekend-our round on a Saturday afternoon was 4.5 hours. There were no cart girls or rangers riding around. But the snack bar/restaurant is nice. I love the course and wish I could play it more.

Log jam at the turn

We had an early tee time on a Friday morning and were paired with a couple of other golfers. The pace of play and conditions on the front nine were great. We made the turn almost exactly 2 hours into our round only to find they had started SEVERAL groups on 10 and we waited almost 30 minutes to start the back nine! Our rythm was ruined. We waited to hit every shot on the back nine. We completed our round 3 hours after finishing the ninth hole. This is a great course. I love playing there when I am in town, but I was very disappointed to have the round soured by poor management of the tee sheet.
