Great playability, conditions, and value!

I live on board Camp Lejeune and visit the Paradise Point Golf Course several times per week. The practice facilities are well above average and are well maintained. They have two separate driving ranges, however only one is typically open at a time. Both feature well-maintained grass surfaces and one has mats and covered hitting areas available. There are a total of three putting greens and chipping and pitching is permitted on two of them. In addition to the driving ranges, there are hitting areas available to work on 50-150 yard iron shots and there are practice bunkers available as well.

Now to the courses themselves. The Scarlet course is a great course for beginners. It is relatively short from the back tees, it has a simple design and few hazards. For the longer hitters, you'll likely only hit 3-4 drivers per round. It's a great course to work on your wedge play and long irons off the tee. The Scarlet Course gets the most play of the two courses and on it you'll find more junior Marines so the pace of play may be slower at times, especially on the weekends. From spring to fall it is in good shape, but can get soggy at times during the rainy season.

The Gold Course is by far the superior course. It's designer was George Cobb who was a prolific golf course designer in the southeast. He designed Quail Hollow in Charlotte which has hosted the PGA Championship and he designed the Par 3 course at Augusta National to name a couple. The Gold Course includes several water hazards, significant bunkering, a variety of hole shapes, and elevated greens on many holes. It is in great condition for the majority of the year. The fairways are generous, but from the back tees it does pose it's challenges. The greens run on the slow side except during dry spells when they have excellent holing speed. The par 5's play long which makes going for the green in 2 a daunting task. Two of the holes on the back nine offer great views of the New River and #17 borders the generals' houses on base which is a cool sight. It is a very walkable course, especially for those interested in just playing nine holes after work.

Overall this is a great facility for servicemembers and their guests,, with reasonable rates, and a friendly staff. The proshop has a great selection of golf apparel and the food at the restaurant is pretty good too. The practice facilities and course condition is what separates this from other military courses that I have played. I highly recommend this course if you are in the area and have access to Camp Lejeune.

Not Being Used for Golf

The Scarlet Course is currently being used for FootGolf. Which is sad because it was actually a very enjoyable course.

The Scarlet Course is open for golf. FootGolf on the Scarlet Course is an anomaly as I have never encountered such a thing.

Excellent Military Course

The Gold Course at Paradise Point is not your typical military base course. The greens were in perfect condition, although not as fast as you might think looking at them. There was a moderate amount of standing water throughout the entire course, but considering the amount of rain that the area has had, it was very playable. It is a very enjoyable course for basically any skill level, although the course has a rule you must have a 24 or better standing handicap to play.
