The course is in great shape from tee to green. Pace of play wasn’t an issue and the cart girl came around enough times to keep you well hydrated. I can also compliment the lunch special of a quarter pound hot dog and beer for $5.
The greens are in wonderful condition, the fairways and rough have grown in. Keep it in the fairway because the bermuda rough is already at 2-3 inches and it will swallow a ball quickly.
If you never played here before, you need to work on hitting from uneven lies and dramatic elevation changes from the tee box.
The course does have some “ridiculous” holes like Number 8 which has a huge elevation change from the tee box (about 2-3 stories) with a creek around 220 yards from the tee and deep woods surrounding the tee box on both sides. This hole is so hard from the tee that there is a drop area at the bottom of the hill. If you draw the ball too much you end up in the pond on the left side or one of the numerous fairway bunkers just beyond the creek. Forget it if you slice the ball.
Then there’s number 10. It’s a Par 4 that require a long iron off the tee then your are left with a medium to long iron to the green fronted by a pond.
Don’t get me wrong it’s a great course and if you can handle the drive from the Charlotte area it’s well worth the trip.
