Started round at 9:49 and was wound up playing alone. There was a foursome in front of me but I played 2 balls and was rarely held up. Finished the round in 4 hours. The course and greens we're in great condition. A couple of tee boxes were so so but no big deal. Bright sun, cool temps and a good golf course equals a great day.
What Yard Markers
I missed seeing a 150 yard post to gauge my distance into the green. Finding a marker in the fairway was difficult at best. Strips on the paths were hit or miss.
No one wearing mask in the clubhouse. Clubhouse could use some upgrade/remodeling for 2020. Had groups of 6 and 8 people on a tee at a time with no starter / marshal. The facilities on the course were either locked ( with no notice in the clubhouse) or they were nastier then a truck stop gas station.
Great course for the money
White Plains is a great course for the dollar. Anyone looking to play a nicely kept course for just a little north of $30.00 a round I highly suggest making the trip. Friendly staff and nice course. Pace was perfect for someone who is not a very good golfer(me). It’s worth the drive.
First off, didn’t play that well but I had fun. The course had nothing to do with my inability to score well. There are a few tee boxes that need some work but I think they are working on them. The fairways are in good shape as are the greens although they seem to be drying out. They seemed hard to me. The staff have always been friendly. I always have enjoyed this course and for a deal on GolfNow for $24 with a 9:50 tee time you just can’t beat it.
The Hidden Jewel
This is one of NC Golf’s greatest secrets. The course layout is both challenging for the intermediate player but forgiving for the beginner. The greens are kept in great shape. I can’t think of a single green that has any bad spots on it. When your shot into the green is as it should be the divot will catch and stop the ball to lessen the continued forward momentum.
The fairways are ok and there are some areas that need work but overall they do allow for both the beginner and the intermediate player to be challenged and rewarded. If you stay in the fairways you will have great opportunities to get low scores. I would recommend accepting the extra stroke to chip back into the fairway instead of going for the green when you find your drive in the extreme rough area. However if you have the shot in your bag sometimes the reward for going for the green is worth it.
The T-boxes do leave lots of room for improvement. There are some that just needs lots of TLC. The staff, I am sure are focused on keeping the greens in shape and have made that their priority but some of the boxes is like driving a 10 penny nail into a 2X4 board. Speaking of the staff, they are great to work with. Their hospitality is excellent and they work hard to accommodate your requests.
Best and Fastest Round I've Played!
This is the second time I've played this course and today was a perfect round. It's not too challenging (a lot of short par 4s) but there are a few holes where you have to be careful with your tee shot. I played by myself and finished in under 3 hours because there were not many people on the course. Last time I played was on a Friday and the course was a little slow because there were a lot of people playing. The staff is always great and easy going! Definitely recommend this course!
Nice test of golf
The course is not long but there are some tricky tee locations and some interesting greens.
