1. Layout: The layout at Farmstead is really nice. Their gimmick is that you frequently start a hole in NC and end in SC; including on the par 6 18th hole. When I heard they had a par 6 I assumed it would be a dumb hole, but it is actually a good mix of challenge and creativity. Overall, the course layout is enjoyable, but not without challenges. It is fairly open and would be a great course to start a golf trip.

2. Conditioning: The course is in great shape until you get to the greens. About 1/3 of the greens are very bare and bumpy, while the rest are in very good shape. Since the greens are so different, judging speeds can be tough.

3. Overall: Farmstead is a fun course to play and once the greens grow back it will be in good shape.

This is the first time we played this course and it was cart path only. It did make it a little more work, but in general we did like the course. The tee boxes and fairways are in great shape, however the greens still need some growth. It was hard ending on a long par six when we had pretty much walked the rest of the course. But all-in-all we had a good day and would go back again.

Somewhat difficult for seniors. Lots of 'breaks' on greens, which are fast. Lots of sand on back nine.

18th hole (signature hole) is long.

Excellent course layout and conditions. Fairway grass is good, but some persistent wet locations. Greens are very fast, but we played in mid - February, when grass was dormant.

The golf course was very wet - I was surprised that they let us out. Farmstead is very well maintained and a real challenge for those of us that are not long hitters and on this day would have loved a little roll. I would like to play this one again under drier conditions as it should be a fair challenge. Love the par 6 finishing hole - long - long - long

Course always seems to be in prime condition. Very playable, yet challenging. Grumpy old guys handling bags and carts, but that just adds to the personality of the place. Played here several times over the past few years, and this place continues to be a hidden gem!!
