This course is spectacular in my opinion, especially because of the 15$ round including cart. It really shows a homelike feeling, and the staff is incredibly friendly. The course shows a deep family history, being handmade from 1 or 2 people, and growing. I would recommend this golf course to anyone who likes golf, whether an amateur just starting, or a 2-3 handicap.

Showed up an hour before my tee time to hit range balls, where I was informed that the range was closed

This is usually a deal breaker for me as I don't like hitting the first tee cold. Course conditions were above average, and the layout is a lot of fun to play. pace of play was a little slow on the front, but opened up nicely on the back side. This course is a good value for the money, but lack of access to a practice area will probably keep me from returning.

This golf course if really out of the way but it's worth the drive if you're looking to try something new. The golf course has array of challenging holes but is also short enough from the white tees to make the golf course enjoyable for higher handicap golfers. The back tees are a challenge for single digit handicap golfers so mix up your foursome and go play this course, it's in good shape and always fun to play (rounds are always quick too).

The course was fun to play and was in good shape! The greens are in good shape but are very hard to read the puts and get a ball close to the hole! The fairways are pretty narrow so you if you spray the ball you will pay the price!

This is a fair course that should delight intermediate to low handicappers. For example, while I didn't fare well with hole #2 today, it is beautifully designed-- reminiscent of a short par 4 at Augusta in its architecture. The fairways are fair-- neither generously wide nor narrow-- and, generally, the roughs are not highly punitive. However, novices or high handicappers will be frustrated by the many elevation changes, blind shots/doglegs, and many greens that are small or well-guarded. Still, the GolfNow price provides a great value opportunity for novices to test themselves and make some great shots.

Course shape is good, t boxes, greens and fairways. This course has several goofy laid out holes due to the lay of the land. It is a place to hit a ball but it is very difficult course. Great shape but I don't like the lay out at all.

I thought the course was pretty nice. I only play golf about 4 times a year, and we tried this course out for the first time on 6/9/2013. It was pretty nice. Stay on the fairways because the balls can be very hard to find on the rough. I thought the greens were above average and they were nice and fast. The carts were great and the layout of the course was very nice.

The course is in fine shape: (a) the tee boxes have great surfaces to hit from, (b) the fairways are well maintained, and (c) the greens have fine, consistent grass quality. By comparison, I attended the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in May of this year and the greenskeepers at Quail Hollow should take lessons from the folks at Falcon's Lair. The staff at Falcon's Lair were super friendly and provided guidance to me on my first visit to the course. I will return . . .

This course is somewhat difficult, but fair. It demands good shotmaking to stay out of trouble. The greens are bermuda and they putt true but fast.

I booked a single golfer for $18 and my wife went along to get out of the house on a nice day. The employee at the pro shop wanted to charge me $14 just for her to ride with me in the one cart! That was outrageous! The course was not busy at all. I tried to reason with him but he said it was course policy (even though he reduced it to $7 when I told him that I would never come back). I contacted AAG Golf(whom the course is partnered with) and they said that he should not have charged a "riders" fee. Beware the older fellow! I am a man of my word, I will not return to Falcon's Lair.

The staff is great, the course is well kept-up. The only time we've were unable to play a hole was when the grounds crews were working on it.

Course difficulty is moderate. Fairways are fairly open, but steep hills, winding fairways, and hazards can make approach shots tricky if you don't play smart. A couple of longer par 3s give you some good practice on accuracy with your longer irons.

At the turn, stop and grab a snack. I recommend the homemade chicken salad.
