Pete Dye River Course

Great scenic golf course with somewhat narrow fairways. Mounds and bunkers along most of the holes can make the course a challenge. The New river is in play on several holes along with other wet areas.

Great course beautiful setting

First time here but it won't be the last. I was headed to DC from NC so we made a stop to play here. It was very windy the day we played so several holes we were hitting directly into 15 mph winds. The first round is always a learning round so we can't wait to come back, which we surely will
Course is in great shape overall!

Perfect day

Fairways were lush and soft, not much run out. Greens were hard and fast, well protected. Although they were just aerated. Pace of play was just over 4 hrs.

Good Course

The course is good but the roughs are brutal. The fairways and greens are narrow. The course is not to par with the hype made on the reviews. I think Hanging Rock was more enjoyable for our group of 12 golfers who played these courses over the past weekend.

Greens need some help

Course was in great shape until you reached the greens. They need some help. They were abused with unrepaired pitch marks and some decent sized dead spots. On the back we had to wait momentarily while the greens were being watered.

The layout is excellent and we really enjoyed our round today. Staff was great and helpful

Walked

Great Course, Superior Value

$25 to walk a Pete Dye Course that was in excellent condition? One of the best values I have ever had in 40 years of golf. On a calm day this would be a challenging course. The wind blew at 25mph and it was an absolute beast, but no less enjoyable. It is an easy walk, tees and greens in close proximity. The only hard part was the walk back up the hill to the clubhouse after 18. Long and steep, could have used a Sherpa. Clubhouse looks excellent, but was closed due to Covid 19. Highly recommend.

Wonderful course

Early season round so not fully green. Several tee boxes under repair. High grasses not fully grown in made course more open. Greens rolled true. Challenging layout. Beautiful views of the river and mountains.
