"A must play course"

SH is a great course in eastern NC. I've played it about a dozen times since moving back to NC several months ago. It reminds me of the nicer golf courses around Pinehurst.

The course is always in great condition and the layout can give you as much as you want. Just pick your tee box for a lengthy challenge or shorter tee box according to your handicap. Greens are always fast but putt true. I love the course because it is comparable to some of the nicest golf courses I've played all over US ( Torrey Pines, Kapula, ) but without paying a hundred bucks or more.

The course hugs Albemarle sound so it can get windy on a few holes but the views are scenic.

The green fees are very reasonable and the practice area is really nice. The guys in the Pro shop are very friendly and helpful. The course amenities are like a high priced golf course but are free at Scotch Hall.

Scotch Hall ranks up there with some of the nicest places I’ve played. Challenging from the Silver tees. Amazing layout and challenging greens. Bunker placement in the fairways made you actually think through a lot of holes instead of grabbing driver and hitting it. It had poured that morning so some spots were wet but not a real issue. Definitely will be going back. The GolfNow 20 dollar deal is the best around for the course you get to play.

I am glad you enjoyed playing Scotch Hall and we hop you come back again.

The current clubhouse has improved our services by offering a nice golf shop with a great gathering area in our restuarant/bar area. Although this is an improvement we understand the challenges of the location.

The course is amazing and just long. It is a fair course and not too tricky to play the first time by myself. The staff at the club are friendly and customer focused. I'm going back tomorrow to play again, you just can't beat the hot deal rate at Golfnow.com

I can't remember a single bad lie and the fairways are perfect, even the first cut is a good lie to hit from. The greens were a little quick for me and missed read a few putts but they are also in great shape.

The 18 hole Palmer course is only $50-60 and I'ld say it is well worth it.

On my 2nd trip to this layout, I was able to really appreciate what an excellent, challenging, and fair, course this is. The greens ran a bit slow, and the recent aeration and sand application was still somewhat evident, but this did NOT detract from the round. Each Tee box presents an array of fairway bunkers that offer you chances to pick your own line to the hole. The greens vary in size and shape, and are well protected, but will hold a good approach, and they did putt true to the lines and contours. Just wish this was a course I could get to a lot more frequently.

Have played scotch hall many times and the course was in the best condition I have ever seen it. All the greens were in great shape, the fairways and tees were perfect. It had rained several inches a couple of days before we played so the bunkers were washed out. The greens were being punched when we finished our round

First time to play this course. Scotch Hall is about an hour and forty minutes from Chesapeake, but it was worth the drive. Staff was friendly and helpful. The carts are equipped w/GPS and they provide water and tees in the carts. It was a bit of a cart ride to the practice area and 1st tee box, but once on the course the tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in very good condition. Hope this course will be able to generate the business to keep it in good condition. It is an excellent Arnold Palmer designed course.

I have been playing Scotch Hall Preserve (formerly Innsbrook) since it opened. Our foursome played last Sunday for an unbelievable price. The course is in outstanding condition (as it's been since it opened). The architecture is challenging and the few houses that are built never impact hole playability. The course is never crowded. Unlimited range balls and cart are included. It is worth the short drive from OBX or the Triangle.
