Great course.The fairways are lush and green,the tee boxes are good except for one I noticed on gold tees.The greens were smooth but a little slow.The only issue was that the traps had not been raked.In fairness to the course,they were hit with a severe storm three days before and they lost approx.30 trees,so they were busy with that clean up and I'm sure that put the raking and mowing a little behind.Even with that,there was no problems with the trees around the course,only saw a few twisted sumps and some piles of brush far enough back in the woods that you had to look to see them.

Fairways good,tee boxes good,The traps had mostly packed sand,luckily I didn't test any of them,but a few of the more out of the way ones had no sand.The only other complaint was that they had lightly sanded the greens,but not punched them.They looked kind of bad ,but actually putted pretty well and had good speed.Without the sand the speed would have been almost too fast.Of course they didn't tell us of the sanding when the tee time was made or when we paid.

It's been over a year since I've played here but I will be back more ofter.The course for the most part is in really good shape,the greens except for a few unrepaired ball marks,are very good.The fairways good and the rough a little thick ,but fair.I am a senior and I didn't have any problem playing the white tees like a former poster,as a matter of fact I had the opposite problem,the whites on some holes were too near the reds.I also saw a former reviewer's problem with a lot of mushy areas around the greens and fringes from watering the greens,but I can live with that for good greens.Another concern were some of the traps.I was in only one,and while it was freshly raked and looked good,there was only a thin covering of sand and then clay.Hard to play out of that.

Let me start by saying this is one of my favorite courses to play.Being a senior ,the course is challenging but not too long.The fairways were really good with no bare spots and good grass,maybe not "lush" but very good.The traps were raked with plenty of sand ,I know because I found enough of them.The tees were grass covered, but maybe a little too long in places and the rough was fair,thick but not too deep that you lose balls. The bad part were the greens.They always seem to have issues here.They repaired some of them this spring and they grew in well,but now they have major issues again.Lots of large bare areas and sporatic small areas.They just can't keep these bent grass greens alive down there is the heat we are having. The course is trying to up their memberships so they can be a more "upscale" course-higher fees- but it "ain't gonna happen"until they switch greens to champion bermuda or mini verde. The new management that was brought in has a tough job ahead.They want more income,but can't get more players with the greens issues and also the location.If they raise rates,they will lose some of the players they have now.I drive from Concord,because I like the layout and the rates are reasonable for the quality,excepting bad greens,but with a rate increase ,I will not be returning as often.

We teed off early,around 7:30 to miss the midday heat.Fairways were good ,tee boxes good for the most part.The traps were raked and decent amount of sand in most of them.The greens were average speed but plenty of unrepaired or poorly repaired ballmarks.How hard is it to take a moment to fix your mark??A couple greens,while still good were showing signs of maybe having issues in the future with the hot ,dry temps. The only real problem was when we checked in and the pro asked if we had cash,because the phones and internet had been down for a cut cable somewhere else.He said if we needed to use credit,he would "write down our number and enter it when the system was back up".Sorry,not giving anyone my cc# "to write down".Too many people wondering in and out of the clubhouse during the day.

Greens good and Rolls true.Traps have good sand and were well raked.Fairways good ,will be great when they green up.Noticed they have been working on some "thicket"areas near some of the lakes and streams.

Good conditions for the most part.Course greening up well.Greens good except for a few ball marks and pretty fast.Traps were good even, after all the rain the past week,with plenty of fluffy ,white sand.Course is challenging,but fair,just a little long for an old guy like me (63)from the white tees.My fault on that-should have moved up!

Great course,tees good,fairways good,traps fluffy sand and all raked.Greens were good but a tad slow.Had a good online rate.A little bit off the path for Charlotte area golfers,but that just leaves more open tee times for those of us a little closer!

Course is in great shape .Tees good,fairways green and full.Traps raked but the sand is a little course.Greens smooth, firm, and fast.Only "complaint" was some of the pin placements must have been U.S. Open related...On slopes and ridges .Made for some tough putting.

Fairways brown like most courses.A lot of fairway traps have NO sand ,just mud.Most green side traps are good and raked.Greens are fast and most are smooth ,but a couple have some issues with bare(sandy )spots.Tee boxes average.

Good conditions in spite of all the rain.A little water in one or two traps but most of them were raked and in good shape.Fairways drain well there and greens were very fast.Some pin placements were tough- side hill ,on ridges-but not overly unfair.Course was NOT cart path only like most courses that we checked with.

Course in great shape.Fairways are drying out a little but still good.Tee boxes good,traps have a lot of sand and have been raked,the rough is pretty thick so keep an eye on any balls rolling off the fairways.Greens were good except for unfixed ball marks but they rolled true for the most part-medium speed and fair placements. One of my favorite places to play even if a little bit of a drive.

The course is narrow in places and if you hit into the edge of the woods,forget it.No chance or finding a ball ,even two feet off the course.The rough was tall and thick some fairways were pretty tall also.The greens were in pretty good sharp and putted true.The "bunkers"were laughable.There was no sand and what sand was there, was hard packed.Most had standing water that was due to recent rains.I saw no one working on any bunkers.I am aware of the Carolina Trail issues but I was playing with someone from Columbia, and since I am from Concord, it was a"halfway "point course .We played as a twosome and had a couple foursomes in front of us and there was NO offer for us to play through.

Course in good shape except it was still a little wet in places from the recent rains so it was cart path only.The greens were good,but a little slower than they looked.Traps for the most part were well raked and loose even with the rains.The staff are always friendly for the most part. We got a great foursome deal for $20 on golf now.

Course good shape considering very rainy conditions the last two weeks,but it was cart path only.A little bit wet and muddy in places but ok.The greens were smooth,fast and hard ,even after the rains.My score was quite a bit higher than it should have been due to the hardness of the greens.Could not stop any shots.I have never "hit" so many greens in regulation and be chipping from behind the greens in my life.If you tapped the green with a club,it sounded like hitting concrete.It reminded me and my playing partners of a billard table both from the carpet like surface,the hardness and the speed. The good part was $20 for 18 holes at Golfnow.The staff was friendly and helpful.

Tees and fairways in good shape.The rough was very thick and deep.Miss hit one shot short ,left and saw it hit into the side of a hill and disappear.I noted a clump of different colored grass at the spot the ball entered the rough as a reference.I found the clump of grass but never the ball.I dropped a ball at the same spot and if I hadn't been standing over the spot I dropped it,I would have lost it! It buried completely in the grass. Also ,the traps were inconsistant.Some nice and fluffy and others firmer,and others with a very thin layer of sand. The greens were very bad with crab grass in spots and very pock marked up. The price was too much for the conditions even for a holiday weekend!

Good course.It is a little tight in places.A lot of steep elevation changes.The green were in good shape except for a couple around the fringe, but to me seemed a little small.Sand traps appeared to have been fairly well maintained.The surrounding terrain is pretty wooded and if you are off the fairways in the woods you can forget the ball because of thick briars and undergrowth.Stay on the fairways or the short rough and you are ok.The fairways were in descent shape in spite of the dry weather.A little bit of a haul from my house-Concord-but ok.Good online deals at times.

Good conditions-fairways have good coverage and greens in good condition except for #16 that still has a small issue on one side-This green for some reason always seems to be the one with issues.The greens looked good but seemed a little on the slow side compared to other times I have played here.I played as a single and saw few other players until the 17 th tee when I caught another single waiting on a foursome so pace of play was what I made it.

Course in great shape.The greens are now the best I've seen in this area.Fairways and tee boxes are good,rough not too high.They are also cutting back some vegetation along the creeks and marsh areas.Everything good but my score--not the course's fault!

Course has a lot of elevation changes that must be considered in club selection.It is challenging without being too difficult.Fairways great,rough thick ,but not too bad,greens basically ok with a few rough ares.Also, the greens were punched recently but are clearing up and putt pretty true.It is a pretty good drive for me but I will probably play again.

Course is good except for thick rough and narrow fairways as one other poster said.It is real easy to lose a ball 2 feet off the fairways because of the height and thickness of the rough cut.The greens were in good condition except for one or two tough pin placements.They rolled good and had no dead areas.

Course is in overall good condition.A couple greens have been resodded in places but it doesn't affect the putting much.The pin placements were fair, unlike a month ago when I played and the pin placements made some holes almost unplayable.There was a couple tee boxes that was in need of more grass and the traps need to be maintained a little better.

Great course.Greens in good shape,rolls true ,fast but not too fast.Lots of traps,mostly well maintained and well placed.Fairways in good shape.Only comment is a couple of the par 3's could have been designed a little better.Cost a little high normally but great value if you buy online.
