Should be better
Could be very good, if not for pace of play and cart conditions. With multiple rangers on the course, not sure why the round was 5 hours vs 4 hours. And the carts sorely need replacement (torn seats, cracked windshields, worn shocks).
Well laid out and tricky course
Beautiful course which is truck but well laid out First time but got to know the course now and looking forward to play again. All our group meme era lives playing The Challenge. Greens are super fast.
greens and fairways were very good. challenging layout from black tees. would definitely play again
Good course conditions, but unorganized
Course in great condition and a fun play although somewhat challenging. We were second group and were told to tee off second. After warming up and watching the first group tee off another twosome jumped in front of us on the first box and did not play particularly fast throughout the day. Pace of play on front was fairly slow because of this. We were finally able to make a decent enough gap between group in front and behind us by hole 9 and upon arriving on the box at the tenth hole, a single jumped in front of us. Again, we were backed up for the back 9 and were even hit into by the group behind us multiple times. Will not be returning.
I’m happy I took the chance
I stopped playing here a couple of years ago because the greens had all died. I recently took a chance and what a surprise. New greens are perfect! I’ve been back a couple of times since and although the greens had been aerated recently, I know where they’ll be soon enough. Happy to have this course back in my rotation and an easy drive from Chapel Hill.
Great course BUT
Let me start by saying that the Challenge is a fabulous course and I always had good rounds playing there with friends and introducing friends who have never played the course. That being said, in this COVID 19 scenario and I having to take care of two immune compromised elderly parents, it is unreasonable to ask me to pay an extra $10 on top of what I have already paid for the round and cart just to have a cart to myself. The policy at the course is two a cart. It is not a deal breaker for me and I will come back to play but I rather walk than have to double up even though I already paid for round and cart.
In good shape
Course was in good shape even tho greens had been recently aerated. Super friendly staff. Looking forward to my next round.
The greens have just been punched in the past 2 weeks, so some putts were a little bumpy, but overall the course is in great shape.
Great summer conditions
Very nice and fun course. Enjoyed the 3.5 hr round
Great course and value
The Challenge is in very good shape. Staff are super nice and pace of play under 4 hours.
They were aerating today, so no practice green, no practice net. Pace was super slow on the first nine, but we breezed through the second nine. Always enjoy the course. Staff is pleasant.
My son and I have played here several times. The staff is always friendly and helpful. They have a great snack bar with good deals for a snack at the turn. The course is well kept. We always enjoy playing here. The staff is usually working on continuing to improve the course.
Well Worth It
Wish you weren't nearly an hour away from me or I'd play here all the time. Very attractive layout without being too difficult. Greens rolled fast and true. Staff very friendly. I'll be back soon!
