hard to believe
I was a member here for five years and had not played it in 10 years. I couldn't believe the changes to the course. The back nine only had three holes that were the same. The changes made a hard course even harder. The 6th hole use to be the number one handicap hole and one of my favorites. It went from a really good par 4 to a shorten par 3 so they could sell off 5 lots for sell the rest of the original hole. It was sad to see that it is more about development of a neighborhood than the golf course.
Cart paths were terrible. Course was in poor condition - Grass was long, fairways were long in places. greens were decent but that was it.
Could be much better
First the positives:
1. The view, really great location!
2. Fairway grass was good
3. Greens were good
Now the negatives:
1. Carts need replacing, bald tires, bd breaks, torn seats, generally bad but they were clean
2. Cart paths ... rough, broken pavement, holes, ..... just horrible
3. Tee boxes, not mowed or maintained well, hard to find in places
4. Finding the next hole location was bad in places, needs signage
5. Hole 6, changed to par 3 from par 4 and sign shows par 4 (and Garmin Golf)
6. Layout makes it difficult to know what pin you are hitting to on some holes.
Overall this could be a good course but it needs TLC and investment.
Very hilly mountain golf, and the cart paths need a lot of work.
Major complaint, there were NO hole to hole directional
sign anywhere on the course.
We came off #14, and it took a while to find our way to #15.
Great greens. Mouth dropping views. Tee boxes need work and most fairways pretty good. Course needs some TLC around the edges, great potential. Overall fun day.
Love this course
This course is challenging, especially the greens. The views are spectacular and the staff is so wonderful!
The setting is great. The staff was great. The greens were great. That's where it ends. From tee to green it is not in great condition. Some of the tee boxes had very little grass. The cart path was more dangerous to drive on than the rough. The bunkers have not been maintained in a long time. I wanted to rate this course higher, as the routing is great and the greens rolled very well, but the other conditions were a let-down.
First time playing this course. Has a ton of potential because the scenery and views are really pretty. Golf cart paths are terrible and on some holes the path just ends. Fairways were in decent shape but if you go in the rough at all good luck finding your ball. A few holes that you have to study the map to even find. Not worth the price in my opinion.
Teed off as the first group at 8:00am. Everyone was sent out on the back 9. Made the turn onto hole 1 to find a men’s league of 15 carts teeing off.
Our options were to wait behind the the group of 30 players, or leave without a refund. We left, won’t be giving them our business again.
Sprinklers were still running on the first 5 greens we played.
Absolute waste of money.
Pace is slow
This is a great mountain course. Some holes and tee boxes can be confusing. Be aware they allow fivesomes and they are everywhere.
better then i expected
My highschool golf teams home course is high vista so during the season I play there a ton. Normally the course is in pretty rough shape with rough patches everywhere but whenever I play the course was in pretty nice shape and i was super excited because the course is a really fun layout.
This is one of my most favorite courses in NC.
Not only is it great fun but it is beautiful. The staff are great and always very friendly. You can't go wrong by stopping in here and playing a round or two while in town.
So much potential, so dissapointed
Wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. That's it. Terrible course conditions. Clubhouse hasn't been renovated since 1950. Used to be a personal residence. instead of taking out the bathtub in the bathroom they just covered it with plywood.
Stunning views which makes it worth playing once. The conditions will make you not go back.
Don't bother playing the front nine. you'll be so disapointed it'll ruin the rest of your round. Play the back side only.
Course is in a gated community. Expected more from this course. Layout is insane. Many blind shots with no references for distance or direction on score card. Some fairways were completely covered with crabgrass and uncut. would not play here again.
Great, challenging course to play
This is the second time I have chosen to play here when I visited WNC and I again enjoyed the course over others in this area! The course is in much better shape than most in the area. I am told by members that there isn't much money being given to the course for upkeep and if that is the case, that is a true shame. The Superintendent and his staff should be commended for a fantastic job!! I look forward to returning again the next time I am in the area.
This course is in dire need of some maintenance. The tees and fairways were in poor condition, un-mowed, very little grass. The cart paths were all broken up asphalt in several areas. It seems like a nice quickly hilly layout of they can put some money back into it. The greens were in good shape, place of play was fine because no one was there. The price was 30, we had played elsewhere for the same $ the day before and had much better conditions, it was early in the season, but based on the review from past October conditions seemed similar.
