The Carolina was developed and owned by the Carolina Golf Development Company, manager Julie Watson.  Without notice nor explanation, the course was closed in 2014, sold by Ingolf Boex's German Insolvency Lawyer (Dr. Christian Willmer), and finally in Chapter 7 compounded by a lengthy dispute with the purchaser (71st Partners of Fayetteville, NC) and insolvency lawyers.   The course remains closed with an unknown future.

My group always plays this course in the afternoon on our annual trip, in fact, there are many times that we play it 2 or 3 times during the trip. It is in good shape and the greens are outstanding. It is a hidden gem in the area, I have never seen more than 4 groups on the course when I have been there. The clubhouse has a lot to be desired but at the cheap rate to play I can sacrifice having a great clubhouse.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level

It a tremendous challenge of golf, regardless of which tee you choose to play. The course forces you to make an accurate club selection on most shots, and does not allow you to run the ball up on the green. Once on the green, you must study each putt, regardless of length.The challenge of the course is rewarded by the condition of the fairways and greens, which are normally excellent.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
