Course was in good condition and greens were in excellent condition. I’m somewhat confused as to why on this day the course was empty, our 4some played 18 holes and never saw another golfer the entire day. Such a nice layout to not get more play.

Played the 6400 yard tees because only other lower option was 5800 yards, need another option of 6000 yards.

I am a local resident in Whispering Pines and have access a all people do who live in this area to several golf courses. I have been playing Little River a few times a year for the past 10 years. I always liked the layout and unique holes on this course. I really like how the course is not lined with houses and is a very peaceful surrounding. We played last week and you could tell that they have been putting minimum maintenance into the course. Greens are pretty good considering they lost them last year. Fairways are decent. All tee boxes were total weeds. Unfortunately from what I understand the property is under control by the bank and holding on to a thread looking for another owner. I would really hate to see another course go down like the Carolina which is another good layout. They should consider doing something like they are doing out at Seven Lakes to pull more people out and charge less with some promotions. They can't expect people to pay $60 to play this course in this condition. We paid $40 through golf now so that was an OK price.

Great weather for golfing and couldn't have chosen a better golf course to play along with my husband.

The drive was forty minutes but well worth the drive. Thanks to GolfNow, they made it very affordable :)

Played here plenty of times. Came down with some friends from Greensboro, NC on Good Friday. It was a great day to play. Weather was nice. Even though I didn't play that good, I had fun. By it being early spring the grass wasnt all green yet. But it really didn't matter it beats a day at work. All in all this is a great course to play. I was trying to show my friends some of the courses down in the sandhill area.

This course is certainly not what it used to be...certainly in financial difficulty. But, if you can get past this the venue is still awesome & a great deal. It has just been airated & they are charging $20 until March 8th & $30 after....can't go wrong! I have always loved this course & every time we come down from Canada we play here! Hope someone buys this great course!

I've played Little River on multiple occasions in the past. I had family in town for thanksgiving holiday, so I thought I would bring them over to play 18 holes. The grass on the tee boxes were extremely high along with some of the fairways. The greens were in fair condition and played well. The golfing pace was a little congested. Overall, we had a good day on the course.
