AS A PGA LIFE MEMBER FROM N.C.,I WAS TREATED GREAT BY THE PRO SHOP STAFF AND AN OWNER WHO WAS THE SUPERINTENDENT.WE DISCUSSED THE COURSE CONDITIONS AND FOUND THAT THEY HAD A ROUGH WINTER AS WE DID IN NORTH CAROLINA ESPECIALLY WITH SOME WINTER KILL.OVERALL THE COURSE WAS IN GOOD SHAPE AND THE GREENS ROLLED AT A VERY CONSISTENT. IT WAS A GREAT DAY AND I ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH. BILL HENDLEY,PGA

Unfortunate deteriorating conditions

Just 18 months ago the course was shut down to renovate the course. I had left for the summer and just returned and was looking forward to playing. but the course is already getting bad. They are making the greens smaller and where they are supposed to have the first cut or fairway is bare and dying grass. Many of the fairways are brown and gave the appearance like it has not been watered in some time although we have had storms and rain in the area. Because of the cold (or the conditions) there were very few playing; a twosome ahead and a twosome we let through after 9 holes. So pace of play was great! Overall I was disappointed.

Back Again

We had played this course a few weeks ago and found it a bit rough. We knew it was under new ownership and that improvement was being made. I'm glad to say that the fairways and traps have gotten much better. The greens while not perfect were playable and improving. The course layout is challenging on a few holes front and back. All in all it's worth playing again.

Coming Back

We got to the course about 40 minutes early and were able play right away. Course conditions weren't the best as the greens weren't consistent in speed. They were not bad otherwise. The fairways were dry and patchy with a lot of cow grass and weeds. From what we understand the course is under new management and is coming back slowly. There is a fair amount of water on the course and the layout is good. We will come back in a month or so and see if it's in better shape.

The course is good

Very good course. They are under new management and there's not much in amenities. But the golfing is good. I was not.
