    This is my first review and I have gotten so much from this website that I have decided to pass the buck and try to help others as well.

    I played Skybrook because they had open availability for $29. It was a good deal. I got there at 11:20 for and 11:53 tee time. The course was quiet and I got right out as a single. We started on the back and the course was obviously, due to the season, quite dormant. The greens had just been punched and there wasn’t much sand filling in the holes, which was a little disappointing because, to me, this makes a golf course un-puttable. I’m from up Upstate NY and I am used to bent grass. I’m not sure if this grass down here on the putting surface also goes dormant, but there were tons of dead spots on these greens. It wasn’t fungal, as far as I could tell, but the grass wasn’t alive. The bunkers were raked which was a surprise and only a few holes had mud. It’s clear that course Maintenance isn’t a huge priority, but it didn’t affect the playability of the golf course. Bottom line- I think I got the value for my money. With that said I would not pay a single dollar more. It’s just not in the condition worth of more.

    I have been keeping up with the Carolina Trail drama and have to agree with the guys here. They don’t seem to keep the golf courses in good condition. Birkdale and Skybrook have so much potential – they just need some TLC and money.

Lots of clubs around town will do short game clinics (1-3 hours on one day) that are fairly inexpensive ($30-$100). Stonebridge is one course that offers this. I've taken the one with Fred Bond and got my money's worth out of it. These types of clinics are usually a good...
