Nice challenge on the Nansmond

Course is greening up nicely. Tee boxes need a little work but the fairways were good. Greens are in good shape and putt at a reasonable pace. There’s a handful of hidden hazards on the course and the elevated greens can present a challenge, not to mention the difficulty of #18. I’ll be back.

Fun course

Greens are hard and quick, the Bermuda rough thick and punishing. Very hard course if you can’t find the fairway.

Because of all the rain we have gotten over the last couple of weeks, the course was very wet (not the course's fault).

There's been alot of rain over the last 2 weeks but the course was in excellent shape. The Fairways were soft and cut perfectly. The greens were in great shape and I loved the layout. I will definitely play there again!

Nice affordable course !

Very nice course with a lot of different challenges. The pro shop employee adjusted some tee times to make sure I will be paired with someone even though I booked as a single. I tought that was a nice attention. Will definetly recommend this course.

Great Course

This coarse is gorgeous and well laid out. It is a little skinny so it may offer a slight challenge. The conditions of the coarse are amazing, but the cart path is a little rough from underlying roots. I would definitely recommend this coarse and I will be back to play

wait a month

Have played the course before, but during warmer weather. Should have waited one more month to give course time to recover from the winter.

Might be better in the summer

Was told that the greens were aerated the middle of March.... wasn't told that there was still significant sand on the greens that made them slow! Most of the grass is still dormant, with a lot of bare spots. It was a very windy day so that affected play! Sand traps were cementified.... hard as cement! Would play again, perhaps later in the year when the grass is green. Perhaps the bare spots will fill in!!

Greens were punched and had a half inch of sand on them. Would have been nice to know before wasting my time.
