A scenic enjoyable course. Friendly owner who takes an interest in each person. Course has a nice mixture of holes. Walking is good if you don't mind the hills. Is cash only.
Added benefit is the Burntshirt Winery, just a short drive away on Sugarloaf Road, the NC Winery of the Year for 2016 & 2015.
You will keep going back to the course and winery.

To begin, the course only takes cash or checks. I had to drive 3.5 miles to get cash. The course itself reminded me of playing golf in the backyard. My ball got lost in grass only 4 feet from the green. The value of the course matched the care of the course. Don't miss the green or you may lose your ball in the grass.

This is an update to the review I wrote earlier. My wife and I play here just about every weekend. There is another Par 3 course closer to where we live...but this has become on of our favorite courses. The owner and staff are some of the nicest people we have met in Western NC. They are friendly and approachable and never cease to thank us for coming out to play. We bring the club cat treats every weekend...and Mittens comes running when we call. THe course is a blast as well. It has its straight forward holes and it has its challenging holes. The greens have come in nicely...and roll very well. Its a good walk when the weather permits (i.e its cool enough). We have joined up with other players on the course....and to a person everyone has been wonderful. As someone else said..this is a hidden gem. The prices haven't changed in 10 yrs....and they are a bargain compared to all other area courses. If you want a wonderful Par 3 course where it feels like you are part of an extended family...this is the place!

Can't imagine a better par 3 course for the money. Lots of elevation changes, challenging tee shots and tricky greens. Also, it's hilly and scenic. I've taken a pull cart a few times, but the course is so hilly, it's difficult to walk. I prefer the electric cart, since the greens fees are only $15, including the electric cart, if you're a senior citizen. I think it's only $17 for the under-55 crowd, including the cart. You can walk 18 holes for $10. Admittedly, some of the greens are not in the greatest condition, but for that price, what do you expect? If the greens were perfect, they could easily charge $25 or more. This course is a real gem, and one of the best-kept secrets in Western North Carolina.

I played this course with my wife last weekend. Beware..they take ONLY cash and cards of any kind!

This is a funky par 3 course. The greens were in terrible shape...supposedly the abnormally hot weather wreaked havoc with them. The signage was funky....they had things like 7A and 7...and come to find out..they gave up trying to maintain 2 tee boxes and went with the A boxes. It was a little difficult to navigate our way around. Better directional signs would make it better. The middle 9 had some long challenging holes requiring some accuracy. Don't trust the yardages on the card or the signs. Use your own judgement. Once we got past the negative stuff....we enjoyed our outing. It was a bit of a walk...but its certainly doable. I suspect we will go back again!

Great little course! Perfect for an early morning round, or a late afternoon on the links. The night golf is pretty cool, too! My son & I have played a lot of courses in the Western NC area & in/near Myrtle Beach, SC. We have paid much more & gotten much less! I'd recommend this golf course to anyone!

Always enjoy a little quick game at the par 3!
Six pack after work and 18 holes are great!
