Nansemomd is evidently a native American term for "waiting to hit." At one point on front nine, 3 different groups were lined up at tee box. When I asked the marshall what the issue was, he said everybody teed off at same time....as if that isn't the starter's responsibility to prevent. Marshall didn't seem to encourage slow groups to speed up. At one point, the marshall picked up a partner's ball that was in play by green....handed it to player and said it was lying over there. Wow. Range was demolished. Every hole was cut to front, often 3 paces on. Some pretty holes but I vow to never play this course again. Way too slow.
Greatest bang for the buck. I played for $15! Love the course! Love the deal!
Nansmond River Golf course
I enjoyed pkaying Nansmond River Golf Course. Fairways were plush and the greens rolled fast. One of the better courses in the area.
I don't like to give poor ratings to courses given all the challenges it takes nowadays to run a course, however, the course is not being maintained compared to a former standard it had years ago. Simply, there is no green grass on the fairway or rough. The course was very dry, dusty actually. Sure it helps the roll but honestly, I prefer not to hit off hard pan. The greens were much better than the fairways. I'd rate them as above average. I play many courses in the area and found this to be in worst condition of them. The layout is challenging enough. But you can find much better conditions within 20 minutes of this course. I hope it improves, but will not play it, till I see a better review.
course has nice layout and nice views of the river
Played in early Spring, so fairways were not great, but course was very nice - I plan to go back when the grass comes in.
Really fun round of golf. The course was in great condition for January! Greens rolled great and were receptive. Fairways weren't sloppy and balls were bouncing. And 17 never disappoints!
Thank you for you review! For January it really is amazing that we are in great shape. Hole 17 really is a hole that everyone wants to see and play. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you in the future!
played this course for the first time. it is well laid out and fun. we really enjoyed it from start to finish. scenery was nice. some deer running around. holes 16 and 17 were really enjoyable. we will play here again soon. we had a great time.
Thank you for your review. Next time you come out we do have course guide books in the shop if you'd like to grab one, they are free.
Fun and Exciting
Make sure you bring gps or range finder as there is no yardage books...that is the only negative.....i enjoy playing this course at least twice a month.
Thank you so much for the review. Glad you came out and played. We actually do have yardage books at the counter, so please ask next time you are here and we'll make sure you get one.
A little overpriced but a fun course
Course was in ok shape. Granted I did play when they were aerating the greens but I'm not dinging them for that as I knew about that before I booked the tee time. Bunkers don't drain well and most were in pretty bad shape. All that being said it was overpriced and I got it with a special. Some of the holes are really fun though and provided a good challenge. Look through the trees to the right of the teebox on hole 17 and across the water and you might get lucky like me and get to see two bald eagles.
The course has great scenery
Great views greens were a little beat up but overall decent playing conditions
Price for the golf course
I like the course for the rate of 30.00 not anymore than that.
birthday play time
Came out to see how the course is like...I'm not disappointed at all...love rhis course
Thank you for your rating and comment. We look forward to seeing you next time you come out.
Pace of Play issues
Went out here on my birthday as a single to get in a round. There were only two foursomes in front of me and I waited for 15-20 minutes between every shot. No marshal or representative was seen at all to keep pace of play even normal for an average foursome. I literally walked off the course after 6 holes after being on the course for an hour and 45 minutes already. No one seemed to care in the pro shop and didn't offer any sort of remorse...just kind of a whatever attitude. Course conditions were fair for the season, good layout as always but can't recommend it because it's torture to play at a five and a half hour pace. Need to show some customer service and respect the game.
GREENS are well cared for SLICK!! FRIENDly staff challenging but fair course GRASS rough near greens
tucked away and quiet
course in good condition. played mid week so there was no sense of rush.
Great tee boxes. Great fairways. Great greens. Lovely course and well taken care of.
Good Layout and that's about it!
So I am a single digit handicap for reference. This course has a good layout and the greens were in pretty good shape but slow from all the rain recently. The fairways were very poor condition. I drove the ball exceptional and I almost never had a good lie in the fairway. The rough looks like all weeds which is mowed once in a while. Not one bunker had been raked in at least a week. I will not return based on the poor conditions.
Good layout course
Played this course for the first time, greens are excellent but fairways can be bit better. Like the layout and moderate challenge. Good for beginners as well as seasoned/intermediate players.
Waste of time
single/ riding took 4 hrs to play 18 holes due to group of 4 ahead would not allow play through, Would not recommend walking due to course layout No course marshal on week days, course manager not in club house, ( out playing golf) Can't tell where fairways are from tee box. All fairways are packed, dead grass. Some bunkers full of water. Waste of time and money.
Need a lot of Fairways done
Needs a lot of recondition and tee boxs are poor and fairways are bad to need a lot of work
