Course Reviews

For a muni course it is probably the best in the area. Great fairways, but greens can be lightning fast! Tough to get a chip to stick. Also, DO NOT FALL FOR THE "ALL YOU CAN PLAY" promotion. We did and got stuck behind a set of 4 walkers. Could skip a hole because there were others infront of them. Took us 1 1/2 hours to play 2 holes. If they are going to have this promotion they need to make it carts only.

standard municipal course. tree lined fairways. slow, flat greens. easy to shoot low scores. a few tough holes on the back 9. great fairways. cheap too... $24 after 12pm with a cart, all you can play!!!!!!

the change to zoysia fairways made the course much better. the rough got burnt out last year, so it probally needs to be changed also. well designed course except for 17 and 18, probally the 2nd most boring finishing holes in the area behind rolling hills. it is fun to get out the driver on every hole. the greens are in very good condition and easy to read because they are flat. good for golf tournaments. price is right.

Amazing Course!

This has to be one of the best courses in the area. The entire course is absolutely perfect. The fairways are better than any other course around and the greens are near perfect. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. I always feel very comfortable and welcome out at Belk and you can't beat the twilight rates either.
