Course Reviews

Nice par 3 course. The greens were slow, but it's early in the season. Greens have nice undulation. I liked the bunkers, too. It's challenging for a short course.

My wife and I played this course yesterday. The temps were in the mid 90's in the Charlotte area and in the upper 70's in Boone giving us a respite from the heat! We loved the course. Its a typical 9 hole Par 3 with 4 sets of tees giving you whatever challenge you desire. There is a lot of water placing a premiuim on shot making. It's laid out in a mountain setting making the views spectacular. Its the walking can be a challenge. The only negatives are the houses and condominiums surrounding the course. THe course is well maintained. Every hole is different making you think about each shot. The greens just a touch fuzzy for me, however they were very puttable and ran true. Lots of interesting local wildlife in and around the course. My wife, a neophyte golfer really enjoyed the course and we can't wait to return!

Well Done

Nice Par 3 mountain course. Greens and entire course is well maintained. Good change in elevation and variety of holes. Water comes into play on several holes. Would play this again when in Boone area.
