Nice Course

The course is interesting for Eastern North Carolina. The greens had just been aerated so they were terrible. The guys I played with said they are usually in good shape and true. Overall I liked the course and would play it again after the greens fill in.

Challenging yet Beautiful course

First time playing at Ayden, and though it was one of my worst outings score wise, I appreciated the difficult greens, and the course setup. Made you really think of the shot prior to stepping up and hitting. Great place to develop your game and staff was friendly.

Good play

Excellent, raised greens; contoured and fun. Many shaped fairways break the monotony of the flat terrain. Just right amount of water hazards. Good cut throughout the course. Course drains well after rains, but drainage ditches present challenge for finding balls when off the fairways; plentiful, deep and unmaintained..

Excellent Course!

My wife and I enjoyed our experience at this course! We were a bit late to our tee time, but the staff at the pro shop was understanding. Thank you for being accommodating!

The course was thoroughly beautiful, from first tee to 18th green. All of the tee boxes were level and well-manicured. The fairways were in great shape, despite the fact that we played during the winter season. Natural barriers were expertly used to distinguish one fairway from another; there was no confusion as to which fairway you were on. Dogleg fairways to the left and right, along with lakes and bunkers created variety and challenge for my wife and me. But how about those greens?! They are ridiculously challenging! For the most part they are small, with unique shapes and curvatures to boot. We had a blast trying to figure them out (although badly).

Besides the wonderful course, the general experience was great. Pace of play was relatively quick; my wife and I played 18 in 3.5 hours. Other players on the course were aware when slowdowns began to happen. The pro shop was well-stocked with goodies and essentials. The electric carts are in good shape, with no problems.

This course is well worth the price, and we will definitely play again when we return!!

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME

This course was very promising because of its affordability and accessibility. However, upon playing the course this quickly changed. The greens are absolutely awful, varying speeds, and COVERED in Po annua. This makes it impossible to read a put, and is similar to "plinko" on the Price is Right. The staff was very condescending, especially a particular manager named Brandon I believe. The members were rude and hit into my group multiple times, even though we were playing fast. The fairways were 50% dry grass and 50% dirt. Trust me when I say that this course is a waste of time, play ironwood or even bradford creek over this dump.

Unfair review! Poa is common winter overseed for Bermuda greens and dies off in warm weather. While fairways could use more attention; I'd like to see them cored, yearly. Ironwood is indeed superior, and Bradford is nice and affordable, but with its own nuances.

Good Bang For The Buck

I liked the course. Greens are in great shape. Pace of play was slow because of two fivesomes playing in front of us. This was permitted for some reason.

Nice course in a good area!

The course itself is not too open or too cramped up. A few of the greens had rough spots due to the heat of summer I suppose, but overall they rolled nice and were in good shape! The cart paths on the course were pretty rough so take the grass when needed. Overall I would suggest this course to others!
