A ruined day

Played the front 9 in 1 1/2 hours. Made the turn and found the golf shop started groups on the back nine - but not just any group. We were on the par 5 10th hole for 1/2 hour and were still standing in the fairway waiting to hit our approach shots. Couldn't go around them and no marshal was to be seen, so we called it a day.

I went to the clubhouse, explained the situation, and requested a return of 1/2 the green fee. Rather than a refund and simple apology, I was informed that my group caused the problem because we played too fast. I was also told - through a form of math with which I am not familiar - that the group had a right to play at that speed because the pace would meet the 4:10 time for a round. I did the math for them: 18 holes at 1/2 hour a hole = 9 hour round. They continued to insist the group was on pace. So, my recommendation is to avoid the place, particularly if on vacation unless you relish being treated poorly and find the risk of missing a half day of golf appealing.

Challenging Track

My wife and I played on a Saturday and had fair amount of people on it. Pace of play was excellent and the layout was challenging. Great day awesome staff. Best value in area. Would do it again next weekend (and we might).

West End Beauty

Beacon Ridge has always been a good course, and this year it's on the way to becoming a great course.. Tee boxes in great shape, as are the fairways.. And greens that are tricky to maneuver, but reward a correct read. All told, a great day.

Monie well spent

Good practice facilities. Many side up hill second shots onto fast greens. Elevation changes on each hole. Major stratigy change coming from flat land, Florida, Texas.

Golf course rating

The course was not in good shape, cart paths were terrible, and it took almost 5 hours to play and had already 3 groups on every hole. Had to wait on every shot and never saw any staff to try and improve pace of play. Don’t think I will play this course again!

We are sorry that you had a poor experience. We have recently reintroduced Golf Course Marshals to speed up play.

Our course is rated for a 4 hour and 20 minute round. It rarely goes beyond that. Please give us another try!

First time here. Considering the time of year (February) and all the recent rain the course was in really good condition. Greens were really good. The staff at the shop were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely play again.

Still love it

Played a few months ago- course was trending in the right direction and it still is! Such improvements over the last few years- far from perfect but a great layout & relaxed atmosphere make it $ well spent. Always enjoy a round at BRidge- happy to support a golf course making strides to improve its conditions & overall experience! Thanks & happily will return again soon! - JP

Ok round

Staff was great I was a little late for 7 am tee time accident on the way there still accommodating. 1 st nine played in about an hour but they sent 3 foursomes out on the back in front of me so 2.5 hours on the back. Not sure why some old hats get special treatment going off on back in front of others?

Will go back!

The course is definitely coming around! For the last few years this course has struggled, but under its new ownership it looks like they are on the right track to make this one of the top courses in the moore county area! Looking forward to playing it again!

Great course definitely worth a visit

Played this course and found it to be a hidden gem.
Club has just reopened in the last 2 years but in great shape. They need some regular visitors in order to get clubhouse amenities opened however.
We would love to see that happen.
Truly a Sandhill gem.

Honest opinion

The layout is challenging and course condition are good. The bent grass greens were recently replaced with Sunday Bermuda and are growing in nicely. Although the grass on the back nine is a bit sparse they rolled true and s a reasonable pace. Bunker conditions varied but were playable. There are no off course amenities.

New Bermuda Greens, Much Improvement

New Sunday Bermuda greens were installed over the summer. They are growing in very nicely and putt true. Bunkers were recently sifted of rocks. The grounds crew and management are focusing hard on improving course conditions. Can’t say enough about the greens as they get better and better each week. The front nine reopened in early July, the back nine in August so the are a little behind the front nine. If you played here during the past 3 years when the bent grass greens were struggling, play it again with the Bermuda greens. The layout is fun and challenging.

The greens on this course were not in very good shape (too much rain for the bent grass is my guess). Fairways were ok. There were so many areas ornaments this course that were completely saturated with water you couldn’t walk in those places to retrieve your ball let alone take a cart. It blew my mind that even in those saturated areas they were still watering them with sprinklers! Perhaps they were automated but didn’t make a lot of sense to me. The gentlemen working the pro shop was extremely nice and helpful. I’ve golfed here before and have seen it in much better shape than I did this day.
