Bunkers Galore!

I think I played from a majority of them! Course is in fabulous condition. Fairways could be greens, and the greens are near perfect.
Tough course...Palmer has control!
Terrific environment along the inland coast, and some very special hole designs.
The bunkers were not in good condition...too much rain.
Did not score well...but had a great afternoon on this course.

Scotch Hall is a must play

It is a great risk-reward golf course. The lay out is fun and fair. The greens ran at a nice speed. Only down fact is their bunkers need work. The par 3’s require your full attention and are exciting holes to play. The driving range is a long ways from the clubhouse, but using the cart takes care of that. Take the time to make the TRIP out to nowhere to play this gem.

Overall okay, but expected more

Drove a few hours to play this Arnold Palmer course. I was surprised at $65, that the course didn’t have a ranger. Staff wasn’t very attentive how players were starting the round off. We were behind 2 groups of 5, which was a huge inconvenience on the front 9. Our golf cart died, which they replaced within 10 minutes. We had to let the group behind us play through and they informed us that their cart died too. When our backup arrived the staff member said “ we have had a lot die today”. Some greens were rough. It was a brutal summer, so I understand to a degree. But these had huge dead spots. The bunkers were either hard as concrete or mud puddles. Overall the layout was fun and some very pretty holes. It very nice of the course to provide coolers full of bottled water. TLDR; it’s expensive for what you get. Slow play, Conditions of greens and bunkers is shoddy, nice fairways and gorgeous views.

Hello, ifuller91. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we appreciate the compliments. We are working to improve the greens and bunkers. Our team hopes you'll give us another try in the near future.

Lots of fun

This house has lots of variations for an eastern NC course in terms of elevation. Arnold Palmer did a nice jot with different green contours and this course was just lots of fun to play.

Great course, bit of a diamond in the rough

Great layout, difficulty, and setting. Only negative I’d say are the bunkers not being actual sand. Half of them had deep standing water in them or were basically gravel that was eroding away towards the tops of the deep bunkers.

Excellent, nice course.

Great course, wide greens and very well kept. The sand traps could use a little work though especially when it rains, some retain water.

Great course

Greens in perfect shape as well as the fairways. Literally the only complaint I can conjure is the bunkers need more sand. Other than that beautiful course with beautiful views
