Keep coming back

This layout tests every club in your bag. Second shots are more important here than at most tracks. The last par 5 is a monster... on in 3 is excellent. Varied greens... fine tee boxes... can I break 90 next time??

Fun track

Challenging, fun layout in a beautiful setting. Greens are in great shape. Fairways and tee boxes are coming out of dormancy and are looking good. This is the best shape I’ve seen the course in, but I’ve only played it a couple of times in the last two years.

Strange Experience

Booked a round through “Golf Now”. When I arrived, the pro shop attendant told me they “weren’t allowing carts” on the course because “it was wet”. I asked for a pull cart and he said they didn’t have any.

I’ve played golf for years and have never heard of a course not allowing golf carts because it had rained. Why not cart path only?? I just carried my bag for 9 holes, seeing that I drove an hour to play the course.

Value for cost

This course is beautiful. The value is second to none. Please keep the rates the same and I will continue to drive 35+ minutes here. Very tough greens to read, but overall great course for the value. Would be a member if I lived closer.

I'll keep trying to break 100

Played the blue tees with a 3-handicapper who hits a 3 wood 270 yards, so tough to keep up. The course continues to be a true test, with second shots to the greens being the hardest. Par 5 holes are magnificent.

Great conditions, but what's up with the range?

The golf course was in very nice shape and is nice and green. The greens were very nice and pretty fast, but really hard to read. There were several putts that went the opposite way from what several of us saw. The staff is friendly, and the practice area is beautiful. The only problem I had was the driving range. They have an upper and lower hitting area, and the tees were on the lower area the day I played, which means they won't let you use anything but irons because the yardage is limited. I'd almost rather you tell me "mats only" rather than no woods since the driver is the club you hit the most, and the last thing you want (if you are someone who likes to warm up) is to get the first tee without having hit a driver at all. The upper area is big enough that you should be able to use it almost exclusively so you don't have to limit the clubs. Hope they change that practice. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the day.

Thank you for the 5 star review! We will talk to the staff and see if we can designate a quarter of the back tee for woods when the range tee is on the forward box.

Greens

I really like the track but the greens need some help. I didn’t expect the weed looking things popping up and please put some sand in the bunkers. Otherwise it was a great time.

Save your $$$

Ouch this was a mistake at least for our foursome. Greens didn’t look like they were maintained very well !?
This was an outing for a friend which all in all made the golfing worth it

Not worth the rack rate price!

Sanford Municipal and Siler City CC would be considered a better playing course

Great course that requires long drives and targeting your second shot usually over 150yards.

Challenging course

Very long with lots of trouble. Premium on shot selection and accuracy. Traps need some work but otherwise course is in great shape with firm and fast greens. A challenging course for hackers like me!

Fair but tricky

This place never disappoints. It’s always in great shape. Fairways are generous and the greens are quick and roll perfectly.
