great course for practice

I grew up playing this course with my junior high golf team. It's definitely on the short side but is still a fun challenge. It was in excellent shape yesterday although the tees could use a little work. (some of them just aren't flat)

Recommended for both 9 and 18-hole play. Also, recommended because they allow walking!

Great track.

I have had the pleasure of playing this course several times. Once under less than desirable, very wet conditions and still enjoyed it. The facilities are very nice and the staff is top notch. My compliments to the greens and maintenance crews for the condition of the course after a very challenging winter season. I look forward to playing anytime I'm in the area.

Fun Short Course

This is a nice short course. They keep it in decent shape and has a good layout. Got a great deal on Golfnow for $16.
That's a bargain in any body's book.

Great Course for Ladies, Beginners, and Seniors

We showed up in the Pro Shop and they had us down for three players instead of two but it was corrected quickly. We were assigned Blue Ridge/ Carolina. Before my wife could even tee off on hole one three golf carts showed up with guys playing in a tournament so we let them played through. The fairways and greens were good for this time of year, We enjoyed the Carolina course the best because the holes were pretty much straight ahead from the tees, . It isn't as fancy as some of the other courses in the area but it is a fun and easy course to play. We got a great deal for $18 through Golf Now but we would not pay full price to play this course. Will be back if we can get another good deal through Golf Now!.

Continued Success

This course has been one of the best I've played in Western NC for the past 6 years. The greens always play at a good speed, fairways are neat with an obvious difference between rough and fairway, and the tee boxes are well manicured. The weather had not been overly cooperative lately but there were still bunkers that felt sandy and not like packed mud. I would highly and have highly recommended this course to anyone who asks about the mountain golfing atmosphere. Great job!

This course has 3 different courses to play.

Love this course, but play was a little slow and the employee in the pro shop needed a better attitude. The starter was super friendly and accommodating for our arrival that was 15 mins ahead of our tee time.

Great Scenery

I played the Carolina and Dogwood courses. Both were relatively short and simple. Unlike many mountain courses in the area, these tracts actually reward you for good shots. I would definitely play this course again.

Very enjoyable course

It was great to find a course with more reasonable distances for my wife, who hits driver no more than 100 yds, and the starter placing us on the 2 of the 3 nines that have reachable par 3's. Ladies who want more challenge could move back a tee. Appreciated the aerification alert and the appropriately reduced rate. Can't wait to play again.

Great mountain course

The course looked great, even though the fairways were still a little damaged from the recent flooding. I found it better to be in the first cut sometimes than to be in the fairway.

Great views from every hole, very friendly staff and MANY drive able par 4's (even from the blue tees)

Overall I would play it many more times.

Fun course and friendly staff

For the most part the course was in great shape and fun to play. Holes were fair with a number of tough holes throw in to make it a challenge. The fact that the weather was outstanding ding did not hurt!!

Short and Sweet

Three 9 hole tracks, all three short courses Played the Carolina and Blue Ridge. Will go back to play the Dogwood. Courses compressed into small area, holes intertwine. Paths were well marked to next hole.Used the hot deal to reserve tee time on Golf Now for 36$ on weekend . Would prefer not pay more for this course. Have played much nicer for less. I would still recommend these courses they were fun to play. Any time you get a chance to play a Donald Ross Course ( Carolina) you play it.The Pros out weigh the cons. If you get the chance to play these three play them. Just get the right price.

Pleasant course

Course was in great shape. People were friendly.
Key issue was inconsistent greens on Blue Ridge 9. Carolina 9 was fine. Course is an older, more traditional one. Not a lot of hazards.

Resort

This is the worst looking resort I have come across
They need to spend some money upgrading various facets of the courses Sandtrap directional signs etc. would not recommend this facility to anyone .
My guess is that they are headed for bankruptcy
