Worth the time

Several of the greens are in rough shape. Course is beautiful. Very unique course design. Fun to play. I look forward to playing it again. When they get the greens corrected it’ll be a top notch course.

Quick Round!

Having played this course plenty of times in the past, I anticipated a round starting on Sunday morning at 1145a to take at LEAST 4.5 hours. But to our surprise (and luck!) the course was wide open. We played through one foursome on 10 and didn't see anyone the rest of the way. Tough to beat a 3:15 round!

Suck it up buttercup

I would like to respond to some of the reviews that made me almost choose a different course today. This is a city course built on a landfill, if you expect Quail Holliw you will be disappointed! The layout is great, the fairways have grass and the greens are a little slow and shaggy. It’s very hot out now and they are just trying to keep grass on The greens! If people keep bashing these courses then people won’t play them and they will shut them down. It’s a muni so get over it, you can play here cheap and have a lot of fun and challenges.

First and last time

This is possibly the worst course I’ve ever played. Course design is fine but its not well kept. Greens are not mowed, slower than anything I can remember seeing. Several cart paths looked to be under construction and then just stopped. Huge patches of gravel and bumps. Really starts to gets ugly on the back 9, almost like they forgot the holes were there. I played on a day where it was 95 degrees and didn’t see a water cooler with any water in it until the 16th hole. Saw an employer at about 12 and asked if there was any water and he replied “they were out”. Told me to call the clubhouse, instead of possibly doing it himself being that he works there. Pace of play was incredibly slow, but what can you do there. Overall $45 for a course that should be $20. Wouldn’t come back

The Greens

Played early (0730). Pace of play at that time was excellent. Greens were in need of cut and roll. Extremely slow. Putting on shag carpet. Remainder of course was in good shape however.

Back again

Found another deal from golfnow, so headed back out for 2nd consecutive day.
Pace a little slower on day 2, but tolerable.
Improved score day 2, very happy.
Only complaint, on course water coolers were not maintained. At least 3 coolers were just shy of empty.

High handicap friendly

Course layout is forgiving, and tons of chances to hit GIR.
Greens are slow, but overall, enjoyed round.
This is a good $25 - $30 per round course.

Pretty, pretty good

Fairways were is pretty good shape. Greens were long/thick, “like ‘70s Playboy” as it was jokingly referred to at the time. Not bad for the money and no issues with pace or tee backups.

Memorial Day Play with Bestie

Has a blast playing! Pace was great. Great staff. Greens could be cut a little lower however, the staff explained about the heat and the impact.

Location and price

Sounds like it’s improved. I’m new to the area and play it for location and price. Can’t be a little slow at times, difficult to see the group ahead of you from most tees. Adding bells would be huge improvement.

Layout is fun yet challenging.

Great value for the price

This is a muni golf course so don't expect the Ritz. This course is very descent and the greens are in great shape. Front 9 is easier than the back 9. One drivable par 4 which is fun. Fairways not the best rated but descent. Fun design and challenging for all skill levels. Course is starting to really green up as summer approaches.

New Year New Course

This is a Mecklenburg County Course so Pro ship is weaker than most BUT they continue to get newer clubs and balls. The grill has craft beer selections, solid. These things plus the poor fleet of carts is why there are really no 5s awarded. The course though is so much better. Go play! Highly enjoyable. Been several times. The greens are great. The back 9 is gorgeous! The short game course is awesome addition and you can’t beat unlimited wedge practice for 6 dollars and their driving range is as large as the higher end courses

Don’t do it

Paid $45 per person to play this course and it was actually the worst course I’ve ever played. Not a hard course whatsoever and wouldn’t be terrible for a new golfer but for the price it’s not even close to worth it. The “greens”, if you can even call them that, were half dirt and half grass. The cart path is crumbling and half of the time you’re just driving on gravel or dirt. In all honesty this course seemed to not have been tended to in years aside from mowing it once or twice a month. Moral of the story is that for $45 there are so many better options and even if this course cost $20 I wouldn’t play it again

Challenging length.... Like putting in the rough

If you want a reasonably priced 18 to grip it and rip it with your friends this is your place.
If you want well manicured fairways and greens this is ain’t yo spot. It was almost like putting on the fairway.
I will say this the course layout on the back would challenge some Korn Ferry tournament players. The Black pin placement is quite tight on a few of the longest holes. Also the terrain changes quite a bit as well on the back.
Good time quick pace even with a group in front I finished in 3:15
