Course Reviews

If you're ever lucky enough to get an invitation to play this course, DON'T TURN IT DOWN!!! The club reeks of prestige, as evidenced by the Bentleys parked outside the clubhouse. It is far-and-away the best course I've ever played. You have to keep the ball in play here, though. There are thousands of rhododenrons bordering the holes, and playing out of the woods isn't an option. (I'd love to see the course when they're all in full bloom) If you keep the ball in play, you can play it down everywhere, because there isn't a spot on the course that isn't playable. The greens are tough. They are super-fast, and have very subtle breaks, requiring them to be read carefully. This course is super-maintained, and is just an absolute joy to play. Be sure to bring a camera, because the views of Grandfather Mountain are absolutely spectacular. It is worth the trip from anywhere to play it. I can't wait to go back!!!
