Last weekend I played this course as part of a package in the Sandhills with a group of 12 guys. We played 4 area courses and this one was by far the worst.
Our first clue was the parking lot was completely empty when we arrived. There were no attendants to help direct us to the carts and the only person we saw was a starter.
This course is VERY poorly marked. There is a stake at the 150 on some of the holes but not all. There were a few 100 yard markers, but that was it.
The course was very poorly maintained. The greens looked like they had given up on trying to control the fungus that grows on bent grass in the summer heat. It hadn't rained in a week or so, but the course was extremely muddy. The fairways were bare in spots.
The only thing good to say about this course is the scenery is very nice. There are lots of lake views. Unfortunately, that doesn't help when you have conditions such as we found.
On top of the conditions, the staff seems kind of rude. An example of this is on hole 9 in the fairway, a ranger came up and the only thing he said was "You're 4 minutes behind !!" 4 minutes?...Really?? I used to be a ranger and there are LOTS of ways to convey that to a group without being an @$!*%.
Both courses here do not return to the clubhouse at the turn. That's fine, but both turn houses were closed and any water jug on the course was empty.
This is obviously a members course as there were many personal carts passing us. I got the feeling that they just didn't want "outsiders" there. Not one of them was fact, none of them even waved or spoke to us.
I will never again play this course. There are too many quality options in the Sandhills to put up with a course such as this one.
