    I'll first say that I love the layout here -- and not just because I almost shot par today for the first time in my playing career! Five par 5's (including back-to-back on the front 9), five par 3's, several short par 4's, the namesake bridge, a mammoth par 5 closing hole, quick Bermuda greens, value-priced greens fees. There's a lot to love about this course if you are willing make the drive out to Stanly County and the little town of Locust. For the past season or so though, the conditions outside of the greens have deteriorated, I'm sad to say. The fairways had tons of crabgrass patches and divots. I had several terrible lies in the middle of the fairway due to this. There was also crabgrass on the collars and just off the greens, which made those delicate putts from just off the green very unpredictable. The tee boxes were chewed up with very little grass and not just on the par 3's. The greens themselves were good. They had been top-dressed with sand recently but didn't affect play. They were rolling quick and true. And though I did miss a couple of short putts I won't blame the greens. I had this in my Top 10 last year and I came back to play today to see how it was shaping up. Have to say I was disappointed overall. This is a top 5 layout saddled with average conditions outside of the greens. Hopefully it will round back into shape by next season.
