My buddies and I play this course every year. This is a great course if your looking to get out for a quiet afternoon, not drop a lot of money, and not expect Pebble Beach. The times we've played the t-boxes were pretty shabby, the fairways OK, and the greens were great. They are very slow and true, but no ball marks, and very lush. The beauty of Gaston is that hardly anyone is ever out there, beers are cheap, and the course challenging for the avg golfer. Moral of this story is, don't expect a $100 course for $29.00. It's well worth the money.

Played this past weekend. Fairways were OK, greens were very nice. Girl in Pro shop was very unpleasant. Needs attitude adjustment. I understand she is the wife to the owners son.

We have owned a vacation home at Lake Gaston for about 10 years. Courses in this area have been less than desirable for a long time. This course actually made a turn around with new owners several years ago. Nice course, maintained pretty well, pretty easy, wide open and nice place for the family. It’s a good course to keep your swing in shape, though short & not very challenging even from the back tees.

This place is rarely crowded and is a great place to relax and have a fun round of golf. Club house is not that great, but I don't spend much time in any clubhouse anyway.

They have a driving range and putting/chipping green which is pretty rare in this area and their putting green is better than some of the actual greens. Most of the time the course is in good condition, but fairways can be pretty rough in the dry months. Greens are small and slow, but for the price paid, it’s a nice track.

So if in the area, it’s a great place to play, but if you want a championship course, you better get ready to travel.

When I visited this course, it was in the spring of 2007, and I found it to be a solid course for the price--club house, not so much. There are some decent challenges here. My favorite holes are 4,6,7,11,13,and 15. 3 and 17 are pretty good as well. I shot a good round and this course helped me build my confidence. I'm less than two years in and hitting in the high 90's. If you are an experienced player, you may not like this course, but it is a soild course for beginners and intermediate players. When I'm in town, it's not on my short list, but I do like this course in regards to dollar value and overall enjoyment. A decent place to place, and it has all the challenges that the average player needs. Recommeded.
