The course has been through many management changes, but overall seems to be about the same over the years. A great layout with some challenging holes and some easier ones. The greens are usually in good shape, the fairways less so, the bunkers not so much. But clearly, clearly the best layout and overall best course in the Salisbury area, and really one of the better courses in the Charlotte area.

As for value, I guess it is what you are used to. It is usually toward the less expensive end of public courses in Charlotte - usually about $40 to $45 on a weekend, less during the week. If you compare it to some other courses around Salisbury, that may be slightly expensive, but those courses are not even close to Crescent in terms of course layout, even if the conditions may be slightly better.

I don't know what happened to the sour grapes poster who had a 6 hour round - I would be upset as well. Usually, Crescent plays just the opposite. The course tends to attract golfers, not hackers, and 3 and 1/2 to 4 hour rounds are the norm, and it is one of the faster playing courses in the Charlotte area.

Lots of hype, overpriced for what you get

I live here in Salisbury, in fact I am a member of Foxwood. Yet I want to try other courses. After reading the reviews and getting a chance to score a discout round I am disapointed in what I found.

The clubhouse is great, the staff in the clubhouse was helpful, and the course is long and challenging. But the love stops here, I have played name courses on vacation and have played on lots nicer courses for less money out of town. The general conditon of the course is on a par with the value courses ( McCandless, Rolling Hills, and Foxwood) but you are paying a higher price for no value. If I want cart paths that turn into a dirt road, hard greens, then I want to pay under $30 for a round. This is my problem with Crescent now. I have played better courses at the same price point in other towns. It is like paying for steak and geting a Big Mac instead. My suggestion is if you are going to charge top dollar then act like top dollar and fix the litte things that detract from you image.

Have played this course several times...

And I agree with the above poster who states that they have played at better courses for cheaper. The fairways, all year long, seem to stay in fair condition and never really meet expectations. The greens are always in a horrid shape with divot marks, root rot and seemingly hundreds of tiny rocks and leaves. The sand bunkers are always plagued with a drainage problem resulting in our league to put into place a free drop rule for balls that enter.

The course design is in itself more challenging and with more variety than most in the area. The practice area is one of the best that I have seen on any golf course having a putting green and chipping green with a practice sand bunker along with their driving range.

Practice here, play somewhere else has become my motto for this course. My advice would be to skip this course and play right up the road at either Corbin Hills Golf club or McCannless Golf Course.

I live outside the Rowan County area and have the occassion to play this course while visiting Salisbury in both the Spring and Fall, most recently on 9/29/07. I'm a 12 and feel this course offers a fair yet challenging round with many opportunities to hit a variety of clubs (from the back tees).

Contrary to what others have written the golf course is well conditioned, especially considering the drought that this area has experienced over the last few months. Although the fairways were firm, the greens did indeed hold shots very well including long iron shots.

I have paid much more for less of a golf course and would love to have this one in my backyard.

Played the course on July 28th and was disappointed. At first appearance the club house, neighborhood, and course look great. Then you start playing. Lots of dead tee boxes, dead fairways, poorly maintained/dead greens, and no bunker on the course is playable. Bunkers where all full of water, red clay, and rocks. No sand! If you do play keep your ball if the fairway. Course was not mowed well. You could loss a ball in the fairway. If you hit it in the rough don't bother looking! Could be a great course if they would put some money and care into it. The course conditions made for a frustrating day of golf!

I personally will never ever set foot on this course again.

This course is way over rated and over priced! Its the only six hr. round of golf I've ever experienced. The pro, the staff, the rangers were well aware of the problem, but took no action. By the time our round was over, there were five holes open in front of the foursome in front of us. Where was the play thru courtesy? Not on this course. There was no courtesy on this course. With the exception of the snack bar girl. Who probably works for tips only. As far as courses go? I've played better for twenty bucks!

Terrible experience. Played in 3:45, yet had group, including head club pro, behind us hitting into us and "yelling" at us throughout the round. Given condition of the course (poor, unless you're a BIG fan of clover), you'd think they'd be appreciative of guests. Obviously, not. Horrible experience overall, will never go back and encourage others to spare yourself the aggravation. Much more enjoyable courses nearby, with a staff that actually appreciates customers.

This is a real golf course. It is not the pitch and putt usual in this area. This course is not for golfers in cut off bluejeans with a "T" shirt that has Budweiser on it. The lay is great, the greens a fine and roll very well all year long. The sand and cart paths need work. Has nice driving range, putting and seperate chipping green with practice bunker. Fantastic clubhouse and friendly staff. My favorite in the Rowan area.

Played this course in August 2009, Greens were Great! rolled true. Some Tee boxes are rough and fairways are good. This is the first time I played this course, I played alone, no yardage books available and very few yardage markers on course. Lost several balls thru fairway or to blind shots. I look forward to playing again next time I am in the area.

greens are very firm

its an ok course, the greens are usually in good shape but will not hold even nice lofted shots much of the time. the fairways are usually decent but not spectacular. i agree with poster that says you would never leave crescent to play corbin hills or mccandles...thats crazy. i agree with best public course in salisbury.

BY FAR THE WORST SHAPE I'VE EVER SEEN A GOLF COURSE IN. I have played a lot of different courses in my life, and this was the worst manicured course I have ever seen. Will NEVER go back again. This course has a nice layout and length and has a lot of potential, but the course is in TERRIBLE shape. (Played in April of 2009)

Decent getting better

I play here a lot, and they are working on the problems. New management will hopefully help. A few holes are a bit unfair, but still the best public course in Salisbury. Anybody who would leave here to play Corbin or McCanless can only hit a 200 yard tee shot.

Best Greens in the Greater Metro area

The course is in wonderful shape. The Crenshaw Bent grass greens roll extremely well. Overall the course is a layout that provides the player with challenging and rewarding holes. Play this course once and I promise you will want to come back.

Played there 9/22/07 greens where in great shape fairways a 50/50 hit if you get a spot that has no grass. I personally think they need to work on cart pathes and BUNKERS with real sand. I won't hit out of the bunkers I will take a drop behind them. They are the worst!!!!

Overall good experience. Some of the shaded tees were very, very wet. Greens were in good shape. I especially liked that the bunkers were well maintained, unlike many other local clubs. Clubhouse staff was helpful and friendly.
