Village Greens Golf Club sprawls across over 100 acres of what used to be farmland situated between Inman and Gramling. Remnants of the old farm can be seen throughout the course, including pear trees from the original orchard that line the 10th fairway. When the golf course was built in 1969, many new trees were planted but much care was taken so as not to obstruct the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, providing nearly every hole with views that stretch from Glassy Mountain to Chimney Rock. The layout has a classic design that is playable for a wide range of skill levels. Sparkling lakes and ponds accent the landscape, coming into play on a few holes. Village Greens Golf Club's most memorable water hole is the course's signature sixth. This short par 3 features a semi-island green that is surrounded by water on two sides, along with three bunkers and out-of-bounds on the right.

Fun golf

The only reason it's not 5 star is the cart paths are horrible. However the course is great fairways in good condition but the real claim to fame would be the best greens in the entire area.Greens roll true and quick exactly what all golfers should truly respect and enjoy. Thank you Village greens for giving our area tournament ready greens and a fun and challenging track.

Still can’t crack 90 here..

The greens are quick, and the hotter it gets, the safer you better play them. This is a challenging course for me personally. Played it 3 times now and still have no shot at breaking 90, and I holed a 70 yard chip for eagle today..

Would Give 4 Stars if Greens were in Better Condition

Overall this is a very nice course. The staff was very friendly and the club house is nice (more about that at the end of the review.) It was a very cold and windy day so it would be interesting to see how it plays in different conditions.

I am giving it 3 stars because of the condition and speed of the greens. I don't mind fast greens when the greens are in excellent condition and these greens would be challenging if they were in excellent condition (because of pretty sever breaks on many holes) but with the current condition of the greens, you will add strokes to your game quickly.

As one of my playing partners stated "It's like putting on cement." And he has played this course many times before so the fact that he felt the greens needed to be addressed is just a bit more insight.

Not sure if weather is the reason for the glassy greens but it took away from the enjoyment of the round. At the end of the round the starter asked how I played. I said "OK but I had never had so many 3 putts" to which he replied, "Well, don't feel bad, the greens were running 12 on the stimpmeter today." Wow, that is championship/tournament speed. As a comparison, Oakmont is famous for the fastest greens at 13-15.

On the bright side, the fairways were in great condition. You do get some nice role but the fairways are lush enough so that they can also grab your ball if you are laying up (expect, of course on a sever downhill grade).

It is an interesting course that makes you think about shots because there are lots of elevation changes and many fairways slope one direction or the other (e.g., right to left or left to right). Also, given the slope of some greens you really need to put the ball in the right spot.

Forward Tee Note:
This insight is for those playing the forward tees. Some of the holes from the forward tees are odd distances. One hole (I think it was 8) is clearly a hole the course staff is trying to figure out. They tried to make it easier by moving up the tees but in doing so the carry over the creek is 150-160 and the average female golfer can't carry it that far (especially in the wind). The other option to layup is odd because you can't hit more than a short iron given the fact the fairway slopes severely downhill before the water. Normally I would have tried to carry the creek but because of the wind, I hit a sand wedge 50 yards and it still rolled into the water. So, it looks like the original forward tee would be much better distance to layup (but of course too far to carry). The other woman in my group plays the course a lot and said she would rather hit from the original tee box.

Also, there were a few other holes that clearly would benefit from the tees moving up. Again, the woman I played with noted a few holes where she felt they should move the tees up. But these issues should not keep a short hitter from playing the course, just be aware a few holes may be a bit long for you.

The course does have really forward tees (orange tees at 4055 yards) for juniors but too short from an enjoyment standpoint, in my opinion, for an average female golfer.

As I mentioned at the beginning of the review the staff is wonderful. The clubhouse is really nice (much nicer than a lot of public courses I have played). It has a great patio to relax and enjoy a drink and meal after your round. You also pass the clubhouse at the turn and they have a great selection of food/snacks.

The course also has a driving range and putting green conveniently located right by the clubhouse and 1st tee.

Decent Course

The Starter was completely lost. He asked my name at least 7 times. He then complained I was playing as a single. At one point we had 8 people, 6 available carts, and nobody teeing off on 1. Many were frustrated with him.

The greens were not in good shape. Maybe they'll get better. I'd play again as I like the layout and the round cost was appropriate.

The course was overall very wet due to the extensive rain the area had the day before so the whole course was much slower than normal. Best value for the money though.

Very enjoyable time!

We enjoyed our round and then pace of play was fine! The course was in pretty good shape. There were about 5 greens that were patchy and several tee boxes weren't in great shape. The staff is always friendly and the layout is fun and challenging. I hope that they repair parts of the cart path that are rough.

Nice course on a great day

It has been many years since I played here, and can't remember why. Course was in very nice shape. Fairways and greens were nice, sand was in good shape, not hard packed like others I have been on. I got lucking and got out as a single in front of a couple groups and no-one in front of me. Can't ask for more than that!

Greens were very quick but we'll maintained. Found a few bunkers but they were maintained as well making it easy to get out of. For the money I would highly recommend this course. I will definitely play it again.

Great course

The course was great, but the pace was the worst I’ve ever seen. There were two holes open in front of the foursome that was holding up the entire course. After the round, the clubhouse apologized and gave us free greens fees next round. I wish they just would have moved the slow group ahead ! But, thanks for acknowledging!!

Great course

Typically the course is in great shape. Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain that caused the fairways to be matted. That is the only reason why I gave it an average for course conditions. As a course, it is a phenomenal course I always enjoy playing it. Hoeever, the greens can Really test your putting skills. It is definitely worth the drive even if you are over an hour away.
