Course Reviews


Great course! Very nice and competent staff. The Golf Pro Ron is great to work with. Our Company has had golf tournaments here over the years, and this is one of my favorite courses in Alamance County. The weekday rate is a good deal, and the weekend rate is not too high.

If you are an above-average golfer who desires a 'fast' round of golf at a well-conditioned course, Mill Creek may well be the course for you. But, if not, you probably want to play elsewhere since the course takes its pace-of-play policy (enforced by meters on the cart and rangers) VERY seriously (2:10 alloted for front, 2:10 for back with 10-minute break in between, 90-degree cart days no exception).

According to Ron Lambert, the course based the policy and the considerable investment in technology and training on research showing golfers' three main beefs against courses were slow pace of play, overbooked tee times and bad conditioning. They set out to do someting about it, he said in response to my sharing my experience last Saturday.

For our threesome of average Joes, the pace of play policy meant being asked by the ranger to pick up our balls in the fairway of No. 12 and move to No. 14 to get back to 'where you should be' according to the devices on the steering wheel of our carts. Our other option: leaving which "is your choice." The ranger added that the members which got on the fairway of our same hole ONCE (on No. 9) also were complaining even though I had told the pro shop at the turn we'd gladly let them play through if need be which never turned out to be an issue.

As he was giving us the bad news, the member threesome (which had some water issues from the splashes we could see in the distance walking off the green of No. 10) weren't even on the No. 11 tee! Then, to add the final insult to injury, the aforementioned threesome proceeded to insult my friend and I when, after finishing, we realized we left our wedges on a hole.

We pulled up to the green, and, after I explained why we were there, this guy pointed to the two clubs in his cart, which I retrieved, but had to add sarcastically, "I'm surprised you have any left."

Obviously, we're not Mill Creek material. After I e-mailed Ron our story and after he explained the research and origins of the pace of play policy, he did offer to have us back as his guests and note that all handicaps are welcome to play provided, of course, that they keep time with the pace of play clock.

I politely declined the offer and won't be going back ever unless my partner is Jim Furyk and he's paying which is too bad because Mill Creek IS a nice course--particularly the front nine which has no houses unlike the back--and the starter and folks inside the pro shoop ARE/WERE nice.

Even the ranger was polite as he delivered what basically amounted to a more gentlemanly (than the member threesome) version of the 'your kind/ability/money not welcome here' message. So that's the fair scoop on Mill Creek (goods and bads) from a golfer who doesn't play very regularly and whose score can average from anywhere in the high 80s to the high 90s BUT who also loses few balls and mostly keeps it in the fairway and out of trouble.

If it's such a huge selling point, Mill Creek should heavily promote and advertise its pace of play policy on its own website and everywhere else which it curiously--at this point, anyway--doesn't.

One last note: unlike we nonmembers, the complaining members sadly didn't oblige by the starter's cartpaths-only rule. Given their reaction even to the sight of us two holes or so ahead, one can only wonder what they'll do if their balls wind up in their own tire tracks.

Mill Creek is the gem of region. They lost their greens last June and rebuilt them and they are perfect. It was hard to believe the staff could get it back into shape that quickly. Ron and Adam are two of great people to operate a golf course. If you are in the area make sure Mill Creek is played. It is not easy so bring extra balls.

I will probably never golf at Mill Creek again. Ron Lambert is doing a poor job of managing this course in my opinion. Read the previous review from the guy who had guests from Wisconsin. My expereince ended up with my 12 year old son in tears because of the Staff, including Ron Lambert, at this course. It is a beautiful course but that never outweighs a bad attitude from the course staff. I recommend to golf elsewhere in Alamance County

Although we reviewed the website and called ahead for directions and to reserve a tee time, we were not advised of the dress code, and therefore were turned away. This was very disappointing since my guests had flown down from Wisconsin with only one request: to spend the day golfing.

Please, for future customers, disclose your course requirements.

Note: This web site does not permit comments without posting a rating for the course. I did not golf the course so a rating response of "not applicable" should be available.

The quality of the course and the value are among the best I have ever experienced. A varied and well designed layout that is full of challenge, true fast greens and just enough water and sand to make things very interesting! All this for 26 dollars on a winter weekday and it includes a cart. The next superlative is the manner in which I was treated. The man in the pro-shop was welcoming and truly helpful and the starter was even more willing to share and make the golf enjoyable. This course is a place where they "get it". Little things are big things - water in the right places for drinking, cart paths in good shape and grass right to the edges and they fix the places that get worn. Great attention to detail here. Conditions are superb - even with the dormant winter grass - the help is almost "doting" and the course is pretty, mostly isolated, except for the closing holes that come through the somewhat elegant development. I can't remember a better value, better conditions and better "treatment" all merged into a single day of golf! I would love to play this course in warm weather when the fairways are growing. This course and it's employees are models for what a great golf course is and should be!

I just moved into the area, and found this course. What a surprise it was, but in a good way. The clubhouse is quite nice, and the driving range was great as well. I played there about four days after they aerified their greens, and they were still in pretty good shape. This course can be difficult if you don't hit the ball straight, but you can go low if you're hitting the ball well. Very fair course, but again, you can get into a lot of trouble. Course layout is very good, I hit almost every club in my bag, which is very rare. I cannot wait to play it again when the greens are in perfect shape! Great course and a great value all around. I would highly recommend this course for someone wanting to play a great course for an average price.
