Great Course For All Levels

Really enjoyed my time at Boone Golf Club. It is relatively flat considering its mountain location. A good mix of score-able holes and ones that require creative shot making. The only down side was the temporary green on number 6 which is the only Par 5 on the front side. This hole sits in a very shaded area so was cart path only due to being very wet and the green was roped off with the temporary green cut in the middle of the fairway roughly 120 short of the actual green. Being that it is not the longest par 5 to begin with, you have to score this modified hole as a par 4. Once you reach the temporary green, you are still putting on a fairway. Though they have cut it closer, it’s still rather bumpy but makes it kinda fun in my opinion!
All in all, I truly enjoyed my loop in Boone. Played as a single with a cart in 3 hours with hitting multiple shots from the same spot to work on different shot types. It’s still early in the season up in the mountains so I gotta get that work in when I can and since there was no one trailing me and a walking twosome in front, it was a perfect opportunity for me to get better!

Great course RUDE staff

Course is maintained well... However the pace of play is mind boggling slow, and I’ve never been treated as poorly as this place. The staff I dealt with is arrogant, snobbish, and down right RUDE!! The “ranger”, had the nerve to tell me and my playing partner to speed up. I proceeded to ask him if I should hit through the foursome 150yds in front of us. If you play this place, be sure you’re driving a Ferrari and have your nose held really high in the air like you’re smelling something bad, and you’ll fit right in.

Slow Day/ Good Course

Course is almost always in great shape, but due to recent rains it was very soggy and fairways had not been mowed in several days. Greens were fast and smooth.Unfortuntely there was a foursome 3 groups in front that had decided to make the course their own private playground, taking a good 5 hrs to get around. However, I place most of the blame with the ranger who apparently considered the backup normal for a Saturday. Just before we finished the front 9 we asked about the holdup and were told it was normal there for weekend play, even though the slow group was more than 2 holes behind the group in front of them. He made no effort to apologize or speed the group up making us feel almost foolish for asking.Slow play is a common issue with many public courses and it would be appreciated by most of us if the ranger would be more helpful in moving slow players along. No reason for 5 hr rounds.

Great course

Boone Golf Club is a nice course in good shape. The course layout is fair and pretty straightforward, especially for a mountain course. Greens are challenging with plenty of slope. It is one of the nicest public courses in the area, so it gets quite busy on the weekends. It isn’t unusual to have long backups on the first tee, but once we got moving, the pace of play was acceptable. The special rate on GolfNow made this course a great value, and a very nice course to slow down and enjoy the beautiful setting at a great price.

Great afternoon of golf

Boone golf club is an outstanding course in the mountains without being mountain golf. Greens in great shape and the overall condition was terrific. Beautiful scenery all around as well as the course itself with many streams and long par threes. Highly recommend this course

Love the course, I’m a golfer not a contract negotiator

I have always enjoyed playing this course! Conditions on course are normally as good as it gets! However, the fairways have some winter kill in them and it takes away from the appearance of the course, but does not affect the score! Everything else condition wise is currently 5 star! I was a little disappointed in the fact they weren’t repairing this because the course has always been extremely well maintained.

I purchased a hot deal to play. I was disappointed only in the fact that course was wanting to charge me full price for a replay., I thought that was ridiculous. I have never had a course charge me full price for a replay EVER while using golf now. I had actually played here previously last year and was only charged cart fee for replay. Dude at the pro shop told me they make nothing off of golf now and that’s why he was charging me full price. Not familiar with their contract / relationship with golf now, but I informed him I had played here before and was only charged cart fee, made no difference to him. : ( I informed him I could replay again on golf now cheaper than what they were charging me and that’s what I done ONLY because I wanted to PLAY GOLF!!!!! He told me that’s what I should do, book my second round through golf now. Even though the course is making no money off of golf now?!?!?!? They made 30 bucks when I paid THEM to replay after booking through golf now again....He wasn’t rude about it, but it did hurt me that this is the way they choose to do business with THEIR LOYAL CUSTOMERS....

Course is not overly difficult, but fun to play in a great location!

Beautiful day in the mountains

Always a pleasure to play this course and today was no exception. Pace of play was a little slow due to the fact we were a twosome, but overall completed in just over four hours which works fine. Course condition was very good although some of the fairways had some bare spots. Greens were excellent.

Great First Trip

I have been wanting to play here for a while now, and finally got a chance to today when I found a heck of a hot deal online ($26, rack rate was $63). The course was busy and double tees at least on the weekends. So the pace of play was not great. But still just under 4.5 hours. The layout of the course was awesome! A good variety of holes, some long, some short, some doglegs both ways, some tight some wide. The par 3s however didnt play a ton different, seems like all 4 of them were between 170-180. But other than that no two holes were alike. The greens were generally large and very undulating. No flat greens and several tough pins in the bowls on the greens. Even though its in Boone, it doesnt really play as much of a mountain course, it sits down in a valley and is generally flat or slightly rolling hills. The course was in good shape. The greens were very smooth, a little slow in my opinion, but very smooth. And the fairways and tees were really nice. If you are in the area and can get a deal on a tee time take a chance and play. You will thoroughly enjoy your round.
