GO HERE ANY CHANCE YOU GET

This place is unreal. The course is in great shape and has an incredible layout. You also get 2 beers and a meal included in the price of a round, so the value for your money is out of this world. If you come here once, you’ll be back for sure. To top it all off, the staff is top notch. Very friendly and quick. I can’t recommend this place enough. Go here if you have the chance!

A regular stop for our group.

I highly recommend Seven Lakes to locals and travelers. This is a must play for our group every year and the food is fantastic. The course is a nice test for us as well!

Pinehurst Area Golf Trip

Course needs water. Greens very slow. Bar and restaurant closes early. Nothing available at the turn. Pro Shop Attendant very rude and condescending to the group. Overall could be a good course but can tell they are cutting corners operationally.

Good course

Have played here a few times a year for the past several years charged the local rate which was suppose to include food and a couple off drinks. Golf course Ian in decent shape green shirt are slow which is expected this time of year but overall good. Went to bar before round purchased beverages for the round got a free cooler but couldn’t wait for food because they were busy and we had to tee off so young lady said we will be here when you get done. Finished at 4:30 and the older lady I believe manager was rude and said food is not available I’ve been here since 6:00 am like it was our fault. Then proceeded to argue with us about whether we were told or not about food not being available. If it’s isn’t available that’s fine but you charged each of us for it so basically that would be like charging me for a tee time then saying sorry we are closed with no refund. No thanks happy about it so be cautious and make sure you get what you pay for

Best Deal in the Sandhills

Now that the golf course has dried up, it is really shaping up nicely. Energetic and friendly staff, great course conditions. Free lunch and drinks was just an added bonus. Hands down, best deal in the area.

Course Conditions Terrible

Steer clear of 7 Lakes. We played with a group of 12 during a recent trip to Pinehurst area. Our group was extremely disappointed with this course. All greens had significant bare spots and many had crab grass growing on them. The person cutting the greens completely missed cutting several areas of the green. The greens were so long that we could barely get balls to the hole. Playing there was the low point of our group trip.

Seven Lakes - Great

Course was in excellent condition except greens weee recently punched and sanded so putting was a challenge. Pace of play was good. Special deal of breakfast, golf and lunch with two drinks was really a great surprise.

Staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our entire experience!

Challenging but fair

1st time playing here and really enjoyed the course. Hit almost every club in my bag. Course was in really nice shape. There are some long holes and some shorter ones, which is the best type of layout in my opinion. Greens were challenging and putted true. Will definitely go back.

Thank you 7lakes for a great day!

Fairways were in good condition. Another month they should be perfect. Greens were just punched 2-3 weeks ago were rolling smooth. Tee boxes were in good shape. Your round includes lunch with 2 drinks. A great deal. Food was good, service was even better. Cannot wait to go back.

True test

Fantastic layout. This course challenges, but isn't unfair. The condition was very nice. The greens were in good shape, but they are about to give them a work over so they were a little slow.

This course fits into the landscape effortlessly. It flows up and down hills, often times in just one hole, and creates interesting shot options with small, multi-tiered greens. Water comes into play on the back nine as well as some serious up hill shots. The greens are severely elevated on a few holes and make approach shots difficult.

The course is a beauty. Downhill, bending holes look glorious late in the day. The water holes are the stuff of postcards.

The pro in the shop, Mike Whitley, was super friendly. We stopped by to take a look at the course, as we had never played it and our golf package needed to be altered. One course on our package wasn't in good shape, so they offered us a chance at 7 Lakes. Mike was very welcoming and let us take a cart and view a few holes. He was super laid back, helped us with tee times, and just made the golf/pro shop atmosphere what it should be; a place where we relate to the course, our game, and each other.

Not Sure

I am not really sure why all the reviewers said the course is in perfect condition.
This was my first time play here. I decided to play here after reading a lot of positive reviews.
It is not a bad course but it is not the best course.
And it is NOT in a perfect condition.

Greens are VERY SLOW (considering it was aerated a few days prior to my play)
Front 9 hole fairways are really in bad shape- lots of dirt area.
Back 9 hole fairways are really in great shape though.

Good layout, SLOW greens, not super good fairways.
3.8- 4 /5 stars course

Go Play 7Lakes

This course is in great shape, fun to play and is a bargain at this price, plus you get lunch and drinks for the same price. I highly recommend you go play 7lakes you won't be disappointed.

Best Value in the Area

Was in town for 2 days for business and decided to try this course considering the great reviews.

Conditions were perfect on a great layout. Tough to find that for this price anywhere, especially in this area. Also a sneaky challenging course, but it was still very enjoyable. Mike in the pro shop was extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely be coming back when back in the area!!

How were the greens? They were completely seeded last fall. I have a group visiting in September and don't want to be disappointed.
