I really like the layout of this course. I wish the course could afford a larger budget for ground improvements. Perhaps one day.

Enjoyable round of golf
A good course considering winter conditions.
Nice place, good value
Played on a nice day in December. Course just got a ton of rain but it's a nice layout and could not complain for December

I'll be back
Tee boxes beginning to grow in. Greens still slow after rain. Very poor fairway drainage on several holes. Some greens with very bad areas. Good value for money.
Poor Course Conditions
Unfortunately, poor course conditions and lack of course marshals have ruined a real gem of a course that I’ve always looked forward to playing over the years. Fairways are in fair shape but many greens and tee boxes are in bad shape with large patches of bare dirt. Worst, the pace of play is extremely slow. Fivesomes are allowed with many golfers marking very, very short putts and allowing others to putt out before fininishing — perhaps the soft greens encourages this common practice. I never saw a marshal and this course could use several. I left after 13 holes because it was so frustrating waiting 10 minutes between each shot. On the positive side, the staff is very friendly and the maintenance crew is taking steps to improve conditions. Hopefully, the Asheville Muni will return to be a course I and others will want to play while visiting Asheville.
2 courses in 1
Even with plugged greens, the rolls were fairly true. Several spots on the greens have been "lost." Many tee boxes meed to grow in.. Very slow greens today. Front 9 is flat and wide open. Back 9 is for shot makers with elevation changes on most holes. I'll be back.
Great Beginner's Course
Flat & easy front 9 (perfect for a beginner)
Once you can break 50 on the front - try the back 9
(very hilly & much more difficult)
first time playing in Asheville while visiting daughter and her family. Course was wide open, with almost no water.. Number of blind shots and some difficult terrain. Greens were slow. Rewards accuracy more than distance. Was told first time average golfers seldom break 100, but shot a 95.
Going downhill fast. No positive areas. Several greens now have fungus dead spots. SAD. At least there is some grass on bare tees now, but you have to water it. Some gold (senior) tees are in tall rough, and are not close to level. I could go on and on. Muni gets worse every time I play it.
Why do you continue to play muni? You give it 1 star every time you play yet you're back out playing. Obviously, you no nothing about grass. Muni is a cool season grass golf course and goes through this every year. Do everyone a favor and play somewhere else.
Great course, fun to play
My buddies and I decided to check out this course recently and had a great time. Course has improved greatly over the years so kudos to the golf maintenance department!
Looking forward to a return visit!!!
Help needed from management
It would help (a lot) if the management would post some information about what their plans are for repairing the course. They've had flooding followed by root-killing heat, which explains some of the issues they're dealing with. But I've been playing this golf course for more than a dozen years and it has NEVER looked this bad: dirt tee boxes, ruined aprons, fungus-plagued greens, huge swaths of dead (sprayed?) crabgrass in the fairways...the list can - and does - go on and on. Just post what you plan to do to fix all of this - unless you don't plan to do any such thing, which is what your customers are beginning to think.
Minor complaining is turning into major grumbling, and you would do well to address the growing dissatisfaction before some of your well-connected golfers take their issues to your lease holder. This isn't meant as a threat; it's meant as a heads-up. Pay attention. Spend the money it takes to fix the course. This is a well used course and you make plenty of money from your traffic.
Tell people your plans and then follow up on them. You're looking at serious trouble down a very short road if you don't. And thanks for the hard work you do put in. We notice when you do.
Please...treat this wonderful layout as the community gem it has been for so many years. Do your job!
Manage needs to address problems
The course is failing fast...Some of the massive crabgrass has died but there is no grass in many areas...ie some tee boxes and around several greens...Our local pride and joy is in trouble...Play today was really slow Four elder gentleman in there eighties were attempting to play really slow....they even drove onto the 3rd green...they should have been playing as 2twosomes ...The course manager was out but avoided the several groups complaining about slow play...but he did get a chance between the 4and 5 hole to do some texting despite our effort s to get his attention...time for the city to start managing our pride and joy
Great place to play.....
Greens were in good shape and play was steady even though the course was full. Always meet nice folks here. Fairways on the back weren’t the greatest but it’s a fun course that challenges all levels of skill. Keep up the good work!
Enjoyed the day.....
Enjoyed another fun round yesterday at The Asheville Golf Course. Greens are in great shape and the rest of the course is coming along. Staff is friendly and the pace was good.
Great course for all levels of players. But did not appreciate coming up behind two groups of walkers; one group had 6 and another group of 4 and they did not allow the two of us to play through.
