Played here for the first time and loved everything about it. Staff was super friendly and went out of their way to help me. Course was in great shape. Both fairways and greens were nice. Fun layout that is a little different than most other courses in the area. Played in 3 hours on a weekend afternoon, which is unheard of at most other courses around. Also a nice little practice facility. I will definitely be back. If it weren't a 45 minute drive from my house I would play here all the time. Great value for the money.
Nice layout, great conditions
First time playing course, will definitely return again! Have to think your way around the holes,. Used all the clubs in my bag.
Challenging but Fun and Fair
We played Meadowlands/Deer Run nines. Meadow is a bit quirky and Deer Run is a brute....long par 4's!!
Greens were a little slow but rolled well. Rest of course in very good condition. Will play again.
Continues to have some of the best greens in the area. Enjoyable round - could only have been made better by having a ranger to hurry along the slow group in front of us.
This 27-hole course has a little of everything. Greens are inconsistent currently, normally in good shape. This course will test every shot in your bag.
This is a beautiful scenic course around the Neuse River. This course has character! (Cheeseburgers here are great!)
I'll be back to play this one soon!
Great Layout / Poor Execution
I'll start with the ugly: many of the greens are burnt out. It's not pretty. It's a darn shame. And many of the pin locations were placed right in the heart of the worst part of the green.
Aside from that, it was mostly fine. I seemed to find a lot of awkward lies, even in the fairway. The rough is mildly punishing, which I actually like (most courses around here have little distinction between rough and fairway).
The track is one of the best around: lots of elevation changes, some blind shots, mix of long and short holes for par 3s, 4s, and 5s.
Advice: add some amenities and fix the greens, and you'll have 5 stars from anyone.
Don't waste your money and time. Greens in really bad shape. Another course Fred Smith is letting be run into the ground.
Good golf course
Good layout, pace of play good. Some greens had damage- but pin placements minimized their impact.
