Great Course

Overall, great course. The course is fairly wide open and very playable. A couple of the holes have a great risk/reward factor for tee shots and the greens were in great shape. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my round there, even though I'm an NC State fan, lol. Great course, would definitely like to play again when in the area.

Excellent experience

Very good conditions overall. Greens rolled true and were well taken care of. Nice layout and very comfortable feel. Not the longest course, but still challenging and requiring shot management. Staff were all great. Only gave off course amenities a lower score since most are unavailable due to COVID. Overall, Enjoyed it.

Course in good shape

Haven’t played here in a few years. . It’s in good shape. It’s a little pricey though.
Not crowded today which was nice. Friendly staff

Great, but...

Course was great as always. The booking fee was a surprise. It presents itself on line as a deposit but when I got to the pro shop the attendant said it was a convenience fee. I said $14.00 dollars to book a tee time, really? That's absurd, I will never book on line at Finley again.

Need to solve issue of not being able to book as a single

As a Rams club member I get a discount on golf here, but I am unable to use it as I cant book a Tee-time as a single. I can book online as a single with a credit card (for higher cost), so why not with the club with a credit card? this is a problem with all golf courses - it stinks!
In addition when I did book they paired me with a threesome that turned up with 4 so tried to push me back AFTER them. After some discussion they sent me off before them so it was OK, but courses need to respect the single golfer as well if you want to grow the game of golf and to keep us coming back!
