What was Donald Ross thinking?

Front nine squeezed into a very flat marsh, very unimaginative. Back nine totally different, uphill, downhill, side hill,etc. many blind shots on back nine, with unfair fairways. Nearly impossible to keep balls in the fairways even when you land in the middle! Tee boxes were terrible, fairways were, OK, GREENS WERE VERY GOOD! This was my first and LAST time on this goat farm!

Shabby

It’s sad to see a Donald Ross golf course in such shabby condition. The tee boxes are almost unplayable, and the fairways haven’t seen seed or weed control that’s detectable.

The good news is the greens aren’t nearly as poorly maintained as the rest of the course. In fact, the ball rolls nicely the vast majority of the time.

More bad news: There was no control of the pace of play. Tee times didn’t make any difference; check in, pay and go, off the front or back, at your option. We made the turn and ran into golfers we never saw on the front. One pair told us they saw the front was “jammed up”, so they decided to just “jump on the back”. We left, and won’t go back.

Disappointed

Difficult to find tee boxes especially for my wife. Conditions poor as the course needs some TLC. We chose this course to play as a Pete Dye layout but came away disappointed.

Where dies the $ go?

40000 rounds played every year and you would think they would do some maintenance. All the tee boxes are in horrible shape. Now would be the time to seed them or lay some sod. How about some weed killer? And at least put som gravel in the deep ruts on the cart paths. You have to be making money since you don't pay property taxes.

Over crowded and no etiquette

The front 9.is nice and the back 9 Is like playing on concrete ! Let’s just say they pack them in and you could get hit with a ball. The players are mainly below average and practice 0 etiquette. A lot of drunks ! It’s worth playing but it’s rough

Worst course ever

Came to Asheville, NC for a bachelor party with 12 guys. We had three tee times. From the very beginning the starter was unbelievably rude, demanding, unprofessional, and ultimately set the tone for an inevitable awful experience. (My friend and I flew and took one golf bag with both sets of clubs to save money.) The starter began interrogating us for a solid ten minutes Apparently, this is not allowed due to Covid-19. Yet, we were allowed to ride in the same cart. Makes sense. Tee boxes are in terrible shape, you can lose a ball if you hit the fairway, and greens are covered in sand. Pretty much the entire course is in bad shape. Pace of the play was another big issue. 6 hours to get through a round of golf is ridiculous. Everyone who worked there is disrespectful. I would never go out of my way to post a bad review but this is an exception. If you ever travel to Asheville, please look elsewhere to play golf and have fun. Rug n tug baby rug n tug.

By Far the Worse Course I’ve ever Played On

A friend of mine and I were looking for some places to play in Asheville and long story short we resorted to this course thinking it would be somewhat semi-decent. Not even. I could probably create a homemade course better than this. Only course I know that you can lose balls in the fairway. They charged my friend an extra 20 dollars because he couldn’t share clubs with me like he does all the time at more prestige courses. I’m never the type to complain, and we definitely made the most of our time, but I will never throw away money to play here again.

Ironic that review isn’t associated with my group that played yesterday as well.
