Quick round

Pace of play was beyond excellent as we played as twosome in 2 hours and 35 minutes with only a threesome in front of us and they let us thru when we caught them on 10th tee. Greens have crabgrass encroaching on edges of most of them and were not real smooth. Was 93+ degrees and no water or beverage cart on course. Sand traps showed a lot of work since last time we were here which was after the monsoon on August 15-16-17.
Overall it was much much better than most courses recently especially magnolia green and birkdale!!

Amazing course conditions but would be worth paying 5 more bucks a round for phenomenal greens.

Great layout and fairway to rough course conditions. Excellent sand in bunkers. Greens are a bit slow and could be improved upon. However, I do know what this value holds compared to courses like Providence where the rates are high and the greens are slower.

Great municipal course

On first time going, this course exceeded expectations. It has been used for local school events in the past. Obviously with the shutdown it may have had the best time to get to peak condition. Tight in general, some elevation challenges. Greens in very good condition as well as fairways.

Unfortunately, no amenities at this time.

Handling Things Well

A lot of courses have had to make adjustments to stay open these days and Dogwood Trace is leading the way with a walk-up window to check in and pay, pool noodles in all the holes, and good communication about any other changes.

The course looked like it had been recently aerated but putts still rolled mostly true if not consistent for speed through some of the sandier areas. Though there were no rakes on the course, the bunkers were in decent shape but the sand was firm from overnight rain.

What I like most about the layout here is how easy it is to walk. There's not a long distance between holes and very little in the way of hills to climb. It's not the most dynamically designed course but it gets the job done and plays pretty easy which can really build your confidence.

The staff is friendly, the course has everything you really need onsite (except an open clubhouse and pro shop) and with GolfNow and GOLFPASS deals available nearly every day, it's a good value too!

KEEP IN YOUR ROTATION

This golf course continues to amaze...
The Staff told me that they continue to make your day as perfect experience as possible...They self imposed some new suggestions regarding the serious nature of the Coronavirus....They evening instituted a "walk-up" window to pay....Asked players to not remove pins when putting and to not shake hands or do "high fives"...
The G.M./Golf Professional Jamie is the catalyst behind these new safety measures...The thoughtfulness does not go unnoticed....Thank you for being so pro-active....Made my day even more memorable...
