Course Reviews


Played the course on an membership intro pass. Nice layout but not spectacular, won/t fault the course conditions based on playing after a rainy day preceding play. However, a number of greens were in poor shape, missing grass, sod patch work, etc. I have the feeling the course was going downhill when Childress purchased it. There were signs of improvements, tree removal, new drains. However, there are other public courses in the Triad that offer better conditions.

Nicest course around this area. Great maintenance staff and manicured greens, rough, fairway, tees, fringe, etc. Great place to play and do not be fooled by the yardage, you will hit every club.

Maybe the best conditioned course that I've ever played. This course plays a lot longer than the yardage indicates though. There is a lot of design variety, with several holes that play straight-on, coupled with a few dogleg holes that require irons off the tee. The par 3's are excellent. The 11th hole is a monster of a par-4 (tight hole requiring an exact tee shot, and an uphill 2nd shot with a mid to long iron). The only complaint I have about Sapona is that beer at the food hut is way overpriced. But I wouldn't turn down the chance to play here again, and would recommend this course to anyone who gets a chance to play this private track.

Great Course.

A very good golf course. Greens were a little bit on the firm side but were manageable.
