Pretty Average Public Golf Course
Nothing too special at Broadmoor; this course is the definition of basic parkland golf. Decent amount of water to contend with. Conditions were okay, though the bunkers need a lot of work. The grass driving range and practice putting greens are nice, but the clubhouse was very average. It’s pretty much the textbook definition of a public golf course, but at $34 on a Friday afternoon, it served its purpose.
Suffering from flooding
I have always enjoyed this course. There seems to be a new group running the club and they are not as friendly as those in the past. As for the course, it played as normal fairways and greens were good as a whole. But the course has suffered from flooding. There were areas roped off and areas of silt and sand in the fairways. On #11 for example the entire fairway near the green had been flooded and there was at least 60 yards which played as if it was a trap. The base was washed out under the cart path on #17 and you had to steer off toward the green to pass. For now the course is suffering and hopefully they will get it back in shape.
Beware!!!! Ive played there many times nice course for the money. BUT!!!!! If you book a tee time thru them or any other booking company's. They dont inform you if theres a tournament or mens league playing that day you want to play. Or do they inform you greens arriratted. But they will take your money knowing theres noway you can finish your 18. Especially if you want to play in the afternoon. There's a big sign on there counter no refunds for slow play!!! Last week didnt get my 18 holes finished because there was 2 groups of sixsomes playing a scramble many times there would be 3 groups waiting on each hole to tee off..... If you got 6 hours to play 18 then this is the course for you!!!
Unfriendly new staff at desk and new outside "chef" was terribly unfriendly and hygiene was a factor. Could smell cigarette smoke all over him
Thank you for your feedback. I will forward your comments to our local General Manager and we will address your concerns. We hope you at least enjoyed the golf course and that you will give us another try soon.

Good Course Near Airport
Nice links style course. Greens were soft and in very good condition. The fairways had some rough spots and some areas around the course were shaggy and needed mowing. Staff was great.
a good test
The Broadmoor Golf Links is an interesting course. With good bent grass greens and firm Bermuda fairways it provides the best of surfaces to play. Conditions were ideal the day we played and the course was in very good condition. The staff was friendly and efficient.
From past reviews wasn't sure what to expect but found the course to be in excellent condition. The number of holes where water comes into play is more like 4 or five but I managed to go in the water 3 times in part because of first time playing the course. The description of play on their website is very accurate. Enjoyed my round and would definitely play there again.
Great course for your money
Course superintendent has done a remarkable job getting course in the shape it is in now from a couple of winter freezes. Play there almost every week. Staff is excellent from Holly and Jeff to Chuck, Dick and Roger. Only negative thing that I can say is pace of play is sometimes a little slow, but that has seemed to have gotten better. Would highly recommend this course.
Water, water everywhere
Prior to our round the area had lots of rain which created lots of "casual water" areas on the course. Fairways were tight, greens rolled true and were in good shape. Lots of water hazards which come in to play on 15 of the 18 holes.
very nice course
We could not get a bad lie in the fairways. The greens were a good speed for most golfers and receptive. Would recommend this course to golfers of any skill level. Also located right near Asheville, NC.
Course was fine
Fairways are just dirt greens are fine but fairways are rough would rather be in the rough honestly
Thanks for playing Broadmoor. The fairways are a little thin at the moment but should bounce back with a little sunshine. The Bermuda will grow fast once it warms up a bit.
Worst Course in Area
This course was in terrible condition. Many fairways did not have any grass. We had to move to the rough to have grass to hit off of. Traps were not serviced at all. I will never play this course again. It should be shut down, if not improved.
Thanks for playing Broadmoor, we're sorry you had such a bad experience. The fairways are thin at the moment but this is strictly because we get a lot of cold temperatures at night thanks to the French Broad River. We should bounce back with a little sunshine. The Bermuda will grow fast once it warms up a bit and the course will greatly improve.
Alot of water!
I knew before I went that this course had alot of water so wasn't surprised. Just gotta control ball more. Would be helpful if something was available that was more informative as to yardages to water hazards but when is that not typically the case at most courses that have alot of water. The local farmers must have recently applied manure to the local fields. Stinky! Even thought we smelled something dead. Uck! Overall a good course thst was challenging but not too bad. Will go back for sure.
Being a single was easily matched up with locals by friendly starter. Played in just over 4 hours for 18. Yeah for that! Course has range, practice area for chipping. Practice green speed and course greens rolled similar. Understanding driving direction and distance control on several holes was especially appreciated by playing with locals. All par 3s had length and character. Greens in good shape and rolled true for winter conditions. Fairways were a bit disappointing based on look. They were spotted with a tufted crabgrass. Maybe spring treatment will give them a consistent look. But must say price was fair for the round. Front side more challenging than back but second nine has more character. The closing par 5 hole is a gem. You have to go for it! I nutted it, but water ~~~~~ comes into play. Splash, dang golf gods.....
This course needs an official to monitor pace of play
Fairways were not in good shape. I preferred the rough which had more grass. I started 11:20 and ended 5 pm. Every shot was a wait. Could not get any rhythm, my game went to pot except around the greens and putting where you did not have to wait. My driver which is normally decent was horrible due to getting stiff from waiting so long. My score was 94 which was having a birdie on one hole due to a chip-in on one hole #2, 10 pars due to good chips and one putts. The other 7 holes were topped drives, missed fairway woods and iron shots missing the greens due to the lengthy time between shots.
Nice course that is nearby.
I enjoy playing this course most of the time. The play can be slow if it is a nice day after several days of bad weather. On those days with a full booking of play there should be a ranger to make sure no holes are open and play is not at a 5 hour pace.
Nice course that is nearby.
This course has difficulty in keeping grass on the fairways. This year seems better than last year, so hopefully it will be a great year to play golf here.
Nice course that is nearby.
The staff is great. Over the years I've been able to get to know several staff members. The course was in great shape, but can get problems when it rains a lot. The course has a number of water hazards that makes you play smart to score well. It is a course to play if you have time to wait on slow players.
Thanks s about it. Grass is trying to grow in fairways. No bunkers (not that you want to play them) but for visual effects. Mostly flat. Naturally hilly lay of the land not used in design. Narrow landing areas. Just not a good design
Great course for the money.
Course has a lot of character and is a great layout. Greens are healing nicely from the fall maintenance and will be outstanding in a week or so. Fairways had some rough patches but you get that with Bermuda grass this time of year.
