The greens on this course are rough. There are some weeds growing on a few of the greens. The fairway was being cut as I played so most were pretty good. Second cut was longer than expected. Overall it was an average course. Not worth the full price to play but worth to play if there is a deal.

Meh? The people were pleasant. It was crowded and shared a parking lot with batting cages, go carts, and minigolf. Also, they were out of carts. Wasn't in spectacular shape, at all. Wasn't anything unique or super here. The tee boxes are right on top of the previous greens here. Like, right on top. As in, hopefully your approach shots are on target, because you could be hitting into people on the next tee. It was cheap, it was adequate, but probably won't be back.

Having played here before, I can tell you that this course has seen worse days. There are still some things that need to fixed, but for the cheap rates and easy layout, you can't really find bargain golf any better than this. Everything is short, driver wedge from the tips on all four and low iron approach on fives. There are a lot of "regulars" out there who most certainly don't venture out into any quality golf courses so they can be a pain, but overall this course is better than I have ever seen, still not great though.

It was a fairly straight layout with tight fairways that caused you to be on the lookout for balls from multiple directions at times.

The tee boxes were in need of watering and grass. The fairways in the majority of places were nearly bare. The greens were in good shape.

You needed to club down to handle the bounces that were like hitting concrete on the approach shots.

This was the first course ever my husband and I walked off of. You couldn't tell where the fairway was. All weeds and sink holes. Make sure you bring a hammer to to put your tee in the ground. The groundsmen were cutting grass did not care if you were about to tee off would drive right I front of you within 15 feet of you. The cart paths cross crossed so you had carts coming at you while your teeing off. The so called bunkers were full of weeds. I would NOT recommend this course to anyone! This by far is the worst course in Davidson county!!!

I have been playing here for about 3 years. The course layout is pretty simple and not too long. If you are looking for a fun place to take your kids (they have an awesome par 3 course) or with your buddies, for the price its the best deal in town.<br/> The tee boxes need some work and the greens are coming back around, give the greens 6.5 out of 10. The fairways could also use a little love but is still very playable. This isn't Gaylord, its Riverside, more of a learning center for golf rather than a resort or tournament style course.

I've played this course before so i knew what to expect. The Fringe and Bunkers are Horrible. Some greens are nice others are really bumpy. It's a $25 course and you get what you pay for. I have no issues with that. However, we get to the course and upon checking in they had no idea who we were and didn't have our paperwork. They actually had to ask me the time and rate so i showed them my phone with the confirmation email and then argued with me about the rate. If you don't know the rate how are you arguing with the customer? We got it squared away and we paid the rate Golf now quoted us but it was a pretty big hassle upon checking in. If you are looking for a cheap round to hit the ball and have some fun then this isn't a bad course if you get the golf now price. The staff at the course could work on their organization skills though.
