First of all, I'm not sure what happened to the greens but I've never seen greens in worse shape. They were unplayable. It was like they were burned and then driven over. Also, I understand the desire to make a course somewhat difficult, but the rough was worse than US Open roughs. You should not lose your ball completely if your drive slowly rolls into the rough about 2 feet off the fairway. It was unplayable. I hit a huge drive on one par 4 that went through the fairway and into the rough about 80 yards from the pin but before a creek. I couldn't advance the ball more than 30 yards and it took 3 shots out of the rough to get to the green. I have played some of the best courses in the US, but none of them had rough as tall and thick as this. If you're trying to have a course that is enjoyable especially to the average golfers and club members, I'd cut that down more than half and it would still be a deep enough rough. It was ridiculous. Overall, the layout and look of the course is nice, but it is just not playable. I'm a 12 handicap and had 3 holes where I was in the rough within 4 feet of the fairway and could not advance the ball more than 20-30 yards. So, what this means is that if you get in the rough at all, no matter if you have a short iron to the green, you need to pitch it back to the fairway or you will score no better than bogey. This is a ridiculous penalty.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I won't play again, I wouldn't recommend this course, Worse than average course for the area

Started on the back side where greens were horrible and fairways barely acceptable. Front nine was much better but not up to standards for a course that given it's topography and layout could be MUCH better. Disappointing.

Bottom line: Better courses for less nearby, Worse than average course for the area

Several greens had a disease which need attention. Tee box and fairways are in good condition.

Had a slight problem with the Ranger as he felt we were playing slow. Originally he based it upon us having a hole open in front of us. Then our time of play showed 12 minutes behind, which was basically caused by the member we were playing with. The guest of the member said they always have problem with speed of play because of the member-s erratic play. After the Ranger threatened to make us skip a hole, because of the pace of play; caused me to triple boggie and double boggie the following holes in our effort to speed up the pace of play. He did acknowledge and expressed his appreciation of our effort to increase speed of play. We never saw a Ranger on the back nine. I spoke with the Pro Shop afterwards to inquire the speed of play for a round. They indicated they prefer 4 hours with 4 hours fifteen being the norm and 4 hours thirty minutes as the slowest pace. We completed the front nine in 2 hours ten minutes and the total round in four hours fifteen. The member played much better on the back nine which allowed us a quicker pace.

It was a good thing we had a discounted rate to play otherwise if we had to pay full value and were harassed for a member-s pace of play I would never consider playing here again.

Would like to see the course conditions in the Fall.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area

Mountain golf just outside of Charlotte NC. Semi-private with a country club atmosphere. Very professional and pleasant staff. Lot's of elevated tees and greens, so fairly challenging to select the right club on many holes. Well placed bunkers and slopes in the fairways make this a true shot makers type of course, although the average golfer can still make par when playing from the correct tees. Sometimes play is a bit slow and the fairwyas have suffered, like everything else, in this drought, but a truly memorable layout for the avid golfer.

Would travel: 20 -30 miles
Bottom line: I would play again
