5-Star-Course besides rain

Although the weather was really bad and wet the newly renovated Dogwood golf course provided our twosome lots of fun. Tee boxes, fairways and greens have been in best shape, and the pro shop and outside service staff was extremely friendly. And without saying the setting and landscape is great, too. Even if one hits a branch of the old oak trees.

Would always come back and recommend!

Our Favorite Round for the Trip

We were visiting for a family wedding. Played Magnolia Grove, Rock Creek, and this course. It was our favorite of the 3. Front nine (lots of water, wetlands, hazards) very different from back nine (lots of trees, park-like setting). Staff very friendly. Good pace of play - especially for a resort course. We would play here again if we could - can't wait to try the Azalea course when we return.

Enjoyed The Course

This is a mature course that is quite beautiful even in the winter when the grass is dormant. Plenty of challenge. Plenty of water. Greens were soft and holding shots. Both the fairway and green-side bunkers were playable. Greens ran true and were quick. Staff was excellent. Will play again.
