Better than last time
What a beautiful day for golf. Went off at 1345 and was done by 1530. Tee boxes still are pitted and balding however found some nice areas on the fairway and surrounding the greens. Still waiting on the traps. All on all, almost had two eagles, but the birdies were wonderful. Greens, still great. Good job!
After playing the front nine on some of the worst tee boxes this side of the moon, it began to rain. Checking the radar I saw that a major storm was approaching. I went to the front desk and requested a voucher for the remaining nine holes and was told. It's not raining that hard, were still playing. Three minutes later, as U was leaving the parking lot, a deluge of rain pounded the course.
I was surprised at how many fellow golfers were playing this afternoon. The course was a little wet but more than manageable. It was my first golf outing in 2020 so I was not too harsh on myself. The course was challenging but I enjoyed it and will definitely go back. It is convenient and each hole presents a different strategy. .The greens were much better than I remembered them.
great course great price
For the price it’s great course it’s very challenging course, I always enjoy playing here
A little muddy but...
Despite the wet playing conditions the greens were fantastic and with a little moving of the ball on the fairways, made yesterday an enjoyable round. As usual, the staff was both friendly and eager to accommodate.
Can't wait for the spring when the traps will be in play and the fairways fill in
See you soon Crossings.
It’s a beautiful and challenging course
Great for people who love nature,loved the forest
The fairways were good and greens okay
Always challenging and fun
Can count on this course to be consistently fun to play. Excellent condition.
Course is cheap which the reason I have played multiple times. The condition of the greens was not good. They have lots of rough areas where there is no grass. Pace of play is not regulated at all!! Expect over a 4 hr round.
I think the course layout is awesome very tough, but the condition and pace of play very hard to ignore. Ok course for the money.
Good, but rough greens.
Had a great day playing solo, the fairways were in OK condition, but the greens looked a bit beaten down; divots not being repaired and some green, some brown patches throughout.
Had to skip through a group of two foursomes that were causing some backup, but staff were doing rounds to ensure they were letting people play through and forced them to keep pace, so that was nice to see.
Overall, for the price it's OK, good place to get out and go play.
State of Disrepair
the guys in the clubhouse were friendly and cooked up some great food. The course layout was pretty normal, there were a few notable holes. That’s about all I can say was good about this course. Sand traps looked like they hadn’t been maintained in years, no distance markers anywhere (maybe one 150 post out of 18 holes), tee boxes so hard you’d break 5 tees before finding anything softer than concrete, and lord help me... the greens. I have been golfing well over a decade and these were the WORST greens I’ve ever played. Might as well put the pin in one of their decaying sand traps because that’s what putting felt like. Save your money. There are so many good courses off of 98, don’t bother with this one.
Wow! A Great Day of Golf
The course was in great shape. The staff was friendly and informative. We will be back for sure.
I've played the Crossings before, and it's a decent course if you just want to play a no-frills round. While the fairways and greens were in good shape, and the staff is very friendly, there are several things that make it one of my least favorite places to play in the area.
First, there is no driving range (they just don't have room). I planned to go to Falls Village just up the road to hit balls before the round, but their range was closed, so no warm-up today. The putting green is smallish, and if you have more than 2 or 3 golfers on it, you're fighting for cups to putt to. The greens are in good shape as I said, but they are slow. The bunkers can't really be called bunkers. They are very loosely defined flat sandy areas with a bit of course sand in them. Grass grows into them on all sides.
I can live with all that, however, but the worst part for me is the layout of the course. There are several sharp doglegs and hazards that cross the fairways, so you need a yardage book (if they even have them) or a good range finder, and there is a blind shot or two. But there are several shots where the fairway ends because of a hazard right where most people would normally drive the ball, so you have to lay up off the tee, and then you're faced with a fairly long second shot. I can understand that once, but it happens about 4 times and gets annoying. It's just too cramped of a course, and the architect seems to have been hamstrung by it. While I would recommend the course for a casual round, especially for beginners and those just wanting to work on their game, I wouldn't consider it for serious golfers.
Great value course
The course layout is excellent as nice Hills some water and makes it interesting for any level player. Could use more water and get the course in better shape but for the price youCannot beat it. UNC Chapel Hill is four times the money in my opinion not worth it. I think it is priced very fairly for this area and would recommend for beginner to intermediate player but even a scratch golfer would find it fun
