Sadly this course was not in the ‘good shape’ I was told over the phone. Almost every green had large grey ‘problem areas’ in dire need of repair, regrowth or replacement altogether. I was looking forward to playing here since it was my first time, but when greens are in that poor of shape, it changes everything. Fairways, course layout, friendliness of staff were all fine and since it was a 90 degree mid week day, we flew around in 3.5 hours.

They should get help from the new greens keeper that Cleghorn Plantation took on last year who made their greens spectacular. If you can get a hot deal on cleghorn for under $25 with fees, that’s a great option or Cummings Cove in Hendersonville.

I would definitely play here again if the greens get fixed. There were some nice character holes and water adds to the character. Some bunkers were in awful shape and some had different color / quality of sand.

Played this course in late winter. It was in great shape then for the time of year. We could not wait to return when the fairways “came in” and were told the greens would be super fast. Well, something happened. They have lost almost every green. Not sure if they burnt ‘em up or what happened but someone probably lost their job. Hope they return to what they were before the end of fall. Black, grassless patches everywhere. Tee boxes fine; fairways great. We hope to return soon!

My brother and I came for our first visit of the club/course and left with a positive experience. We arrived and were greeting warmly in the clubhouse by both the pro shop attendant and the starter. The putting green was in great shape and gave us an accurate representation of the green speed for the round. Upon approaching the first hole, the starter was wonderful and gave us a great overview of the course, as well as some great suggestions that we utilized throughout our round.

The course was in very good shape overall considering the time of year. The tee boxes were not necessarily lush; however, the boxes were smooth (flat) and offered a great teeing surface. The fairways played very nicely and most of the bunkers were filled with actual sand and not just Carolina clay. We really enjoyed the fact that the greens were overall not too challenging coupled with pristine placement of protective bunkers around them. Our only complaint would be the greens on the back nine as they were a little rough and patchy in places- - definitely not horrible, but need a little bit of work.

The pace of play was pretty good considering that it was a Saturday afternoon. It took us about 4:15 to play through 18 holes as we had to wait on about 1/2 of the tees for the group in front of us. The beverage cart came through a couple of times and did a good job of making its way around.

In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed our round and the value for the price we paid. I highly recommend this course to others and want to let management know that we will definitely be revisiting. One more shout out to the starter for his tips of advice!

Definitely worth the drive from GVL.

Trees were budding and the grass still dormant. Weather was mid 70's with a slight breeze.

Paired with two "members" in their 70's that play very well. They were excellent stewards of the sport and provided key advice to successfully get around the course.

It was a great day. Life Is Good.

Very nice layout with views of the mountains in the distance. Being that it is March, the course is still dormant which makes it very playable. My only negative would be that the greens are in rough shape due to damage.

The course has a nice layout and overall good conditions. My only real issue with the course is green set up. The greens are undulated with lots of sloped areas. Why in the world would the pins be placed on these slopes or the edge of ridges when the speed of the green is so fast? Had more putts than I care to remember just miss the cup, while rolling slow enough to read "Callaway" with each revolution, only to pick up speed and roll out another 10-15 feet. Just not my idea of a good time, I didn't enter the "Club Championship"

Played the back tees by myself , so I can't report my 79 on my handicap. Play was at an ok speed , I followed a couple and a threesome , just waited my turn . Fairways are very wide and the greens although appearing fast played very slow but after 3 or four holes got the pace. Had an enjoyable day .

Booking, check in was easy. Course, especially fairways and tees, in overall excellent condition although some greens seemed to have issues. Green speed was a bit slower than I'm used to, fairways were in superb condition. Rough was rough without being too penal. Got a few screwy readings on my GPS watch, but generally ok. Pace of play was excellent..we finished in about 3:50 even though we usually play pretty quickly. I'm sure we will be back.
