A great driving course. Challenging par 3s if you play from the blues or back tees. In a housing development but the homes do not impact play or the scenery. Good conditions from tee to greens. You can't go wrong selecting this course to play

Very nice course and a lot of character. I think they did a great job with the land contours and design. Very challenging but if you play the correct tees (check the egos guys), it’s a fun experience. If you are a 15 handicap, you do not need to play the back tees. That is why it is slow out there sometimes.

Someone said it’s the best in the state? Hardly. Did someone forget about Pinehurst??? But it definitely ranks high on the list of places I love to play.

$62 on weekends is ok for the Raleigh area, but there are other excellent courses which can be had for less. My #1 value pick east of Raleigh is Ford's Colony in Rocky Mt.

Overrated. This course is rated as a top course in the state. It's average; nothing more. I will give it that it's affordable for it's condition; but nowhere near being rated a best in state course.
The pluses: Didn't have to wait for anyone until the 16th hole. Friendly staff. Had coupon which got me on for $35 including cart.
No real negatives. Course is pretty difficult. Good luck getting a even lie.
I played it in November and the Bermuda grass was dead so it was tough getting a take on how the course is kept up.
Course is surrounded by houses; some above average; some average.

This was a beautiful and well designed course. It travels through the neighborhood more the most than I played but it adds to the uniqueness of the course. Not to much water which tends to gobble up my balls. A few greens were suffering from the drought. You will enjoy this course.

I played here as a single and they paired me with 2 gentlemen who were extremely friendly and helpful. This is the prettiest course that I've ever played.
