Now they have a clubhouse and have re-routed #9 so there is no driving range. I great course, although the tees are a bit beaten up. Otherwise, I recommend this course - I agree with the remark about #18, and #7 is also great. It is not as difficult as suggested in other comments.

I worked here in college. One of America's true hidden Gems if they still maintain it the way they used to. Come October when the rye grass comes in and the course is in perfect shape there is no where better. #10 is a bad hole but there are about 7 great ones. I still remember every hole on the course and would love to play there again. #18 is still probably one of the 5 best holes I have ever played along with #7 both par 5's that demand 3 very good or 2 perfect golf shots. Number 12 is the same way as is #2. I have played about 20 of the top 100 in the US and if this course was lengthened, #10 was changed to a par 3; and a 40,000 square foot clubhouse was built this place is as well routed and laid out as any golf course any where.

One of the best courses in the are. Two marginal holes (4 and 10) with numerous great holes. 3 great par 3s, among the best in North Carolina. This course is challenging, fair and very beautiful!
