A 9-holer That Keeps You Coming Back 4 More
This is a gem and very well maintained by the City of Asheboro. One of the few (if not the only) original Donald Ross designs in the country that no one else has tried to give it a face-lift. The first 3 holes are open so it tempts you to go Driver, PW/9I into the green but rarely does that happen successfully. #4 is the only Par 5 and you CANNOT miss left, and oh if you miss right you could be around the #8 green area with a punch out in your future. #5 is the first of two tight Par 3's and starts your 4 hole journey we locals call "In The Pines" as it is tight and demands an accurate tee ball as well as approach. #9 is a dogleg sweeper to the right of which you can hit a great tee ball through the left side of the fairway if not careful, or leave it right in the rows of pine trees which is "punch out city". This is the home course for the local high school (Asheboro Blue Comets) and I know from experience that this little 9 holer offers some of the highest collective averages year after year. It looks so tame to the eye, and that is what keeps you coming back because you just know you can do better than your last effort. A joy to play and it does not break your bank account.
Great Old Course
Asheboro Municpal is probably the best value I've found since moving to NC. I may be biased because I'm a huge Donald Ross fan, but I think it's a great track. You can't beat $10 to walk all you can play!!
The course isn't long but the greens are very small which make it challenging. The course also requires the player to work the ball both ways off the tee. Don't need driver much, but you'd better be accurate.
