I played the course last weekend after reading the harsh reviews on this site. My reaction was a pleasant surprise. I have played nice golf resorts and typically play public courses in BG and Nashville and the Trace was not nearly as bad as I had heard. The fairways have weeds in a couple of spots, but for the most part were in good shape. The customer service was excellent. The greens were decent. My overall review is that the Trace was not Olde Stone, but it is definitely worth a very short drive to play a different course. As for losing balls like one reviewer posted, I only lost one ball and that was from a poor shot. Tee-fairway-green and you should be ok.

This is the WORST course I have ever played! The layout is great and could be a great course. It is a goat ranch! DO NOT waste your money on this course until things improve! There is no grass, weeds. Two fairways closed, weeds everywhere, the greens were not well maintained, the sand traps had weeds growing in them.

New management took over in Sept. Hard to believe how much it has improved! Now probably one of the better values around.

If you play here, don't bring good clubs and golf balls. Bring equipment that can get beat up and a lot of shag balls, because balls can be lost even in the fairway.
