The one public course in NC you must play!

Even with a lil rain during the round this course is a sight to see given the 360 degree mountain valley views. Great track!

Boone is a must play.

Two big thumbs up for Boone. This is quite a scenic track. Conditions of the cores were outstanding. The view from every shot is very very nice. If you're in the western Carolina versus the most play location. You really going to enjoy it.

Great Layout

Thanks to the starter for letting us off the back to start. League was starting before our tee time and no way were we going off the front. Also the starter worked us in at the turn with another 2 some.

Less than expectation

It is not a mountain course. The fairways were wet and the grass were high (could not see the ball easily). We were disappointed this time.

Boone Golf Club - Worth the Drive

I travel about an hour to play Boone Golf Club several times each year. The layout is challenging, but fair with generous driving areas. The greens are tricky but have always been in outstanding condition. Nice elevation changes for a "valley" course that sits between several mountains. The service is great, the quality of the facilities, carts, driving range, putting green makes the hour drive well worth it! Quite surprised to get the super price for the 1st tee time as this course is easily worth 2x what I paid.

Very slow, no help from "rangers".

Around tee time there were 8 carts waiting at the first tee. During day there were several times our foursome waited over 10 minutes in the tee box. I counted two groups of 5 during the day.

Also at this time the greens are quite sandy and are aerated. Also all of the traps are unplayable. The course will be great in 4-6 weeks.

Off-Season Conditions

The course is fine, it just needs time to get into season. When we played this day, the fairways were not mowed and the greens were aerated, sandy, and slow. Nothing bad, just needs time to wake up from winter into spring. The layout is fun with elevation changes and great views of the mountains. A little oddthat the range and chipping green are in the middle of the course (budget extra time if you intend to warm up). Slightly disappointed they didn’t provide a discount or a warning that the greens were aerated. I’d love to come back in the summer/fall when conditions are better. I bet this course is a great mountain retreat in its prime season.

Crowded/Slow, but excellent venue

Tee boxes & fairways were in great condition. Greens very fast with lots of undulations but were in fantastic shape.
Did not start us at scheduled tee time and only got in 9 holes with so many plsyes out on the course. Agonizingly slow pace of play.

Holds your attention

Scenic course with a nice layout. Greens are extremely challenging. Large, fast and no flat spots. You can easily roll off the green on a 4-foot putt on some greens. Prices are high to nail the summer vacationers, but you can get deals on Golf Now as low as $12. Staff is friendly and helpful but no drink carts so bring your own hydration. Work your way around carefully and you will have a good time.

Beautiful and Challenging course.

This is one of my favorite courses to play in NC. The course is always in great shape. The staff is always friendly and more than willing to help! The layout is challenging, especially from the blue tees. The high country views will more than make up for a poor score!

Beautiful course & Challenging

The Boone course is a beautiful setting. The course lay out is very challenging. Playing in the morning the grass is wet so adds more strokes vs. afternoon when dried out. Also, pin placements can be very challenging...and require vey precise approach shots and putts...easy to 3 putt many holes.

Don't get to disappointed with your score...just enjoy the beauty of the course.
