Greens rolled real good and staff was great. But the tee boxes and overall shape of the course was very neglected. Could be a good course to play with the layout but not very good shape.

Same old ...

Same old course. Cart paths are terrible. Not much grass in the fairways. Whole course has poor drainage, thus was very wet. When we took our golf bags off the cart after our round, found over a dozen cigarette buts at the back. Usually play this course once a winter. Never gets any better. Only paid $23 thru Golf Now. Not worth any more. Won't be back.

Don’t play here

Course is in very poor condition, appears to be as a result of not maintaining it. Weeds and root eating insects have taken over. Greens are about the only area of the course which appear to be maintained.

Very enjoyable

Carolina Shores is one of our favorite courses. The course is in good condition as always and the greens were fine. Play moved along very well. The staff including the bagman are the best. We can't wait to play CS again.

Good layout, wet

Course and setting was good. Clubhouse was nice and staff was very friendly. Unfortunately all the rain recently wasn’t a good thing. Would like to play it again once the monsoon season is over.

Terrible greens

The front 9 greens are pretty much unplayable. The back 9 greens are playable but are just mediocre and you probably won’t get a true roll. The tee boxes were below average. The layout was fine and would be nice if the course was better taken care of.

Burnt Greens

Greens were not in the best shape at all. We usually visit once a year for our family vacation and find a course to play. I wasn’t impressed with how the course was manicured. A course that is going to charge regular prices such as others should be well maintained!

Great experience.

Fun course to play. Very wet and cart path only on front 9 and 90 degree on back 9. There was a lot of rain this week. Driving range was closed too. Staff was very friendly and accommodating as they let me reschedule my tee time several times due to the weather. It was booked on GolfNow. I would definitely play this course again when I visit next year.
