Good round

I always enjoy this course and the links style layout. Nice tee boxes and fairways. Greens showing some wear and a little slow. Course drainage was OK after heavy rain the night before. The view on 18 never gets old. Will be back.

My experience at sleepy hole July 6, 1920

We got behind a twosome right off the start and it was very very slow they had no intention to let us play through and I don’t know what they were doing but it was a bad experience because one they had one cart and one guy was walking practically the whole course the whole fairway and the other guy was like totally not even interested in what he was doing it was terrible and then we approached them on the fourth or fifth hole and I thought they would let us pass them and MoveOn and you know and they did not do that so it was a very rude experience from them and overall it really sucked

Challenging layout.

Tough golf course. In good shape. Some of the bunkers had hard pan sand but it looks like they were working on them and getting them prepped for more sand. Staff was really nice and helpful. Definitely recommend playing Sleepy Hole!

Couples Outing

I played this course with my husband. We booked a Hot Deal over the 4th of July weekend. The course was in great shape. The greens are firm but fair, and most holes don’t penalize harshly for a sprayed drive. We had a great time!

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!
