"Worth playing"

5/20/24: Review by golferdude

Played the tips..few mud balls due to recent rains. Greens were decent speed but not very receptive (many iron shots and pitches ran off the green). First time here in 8 years. Do like the look with the renovations. Rates are reasonable.

    Some of the best greens in the area, course always seems to have some drainage issues and some spots that struggle coming out of winter, consequently a lot of areas marked as GUR in the fairways, but outside of the rough spots the course is fine.

    Greens were in great shape and very fast, fairways still coming in with a few patchy spots and some GUR. Good value to walk on a weekday afternoon, and one of the best courses in the area currently.

    Course was in pretty good shape, greens were a little slow, likely because of all the rain the 24 hours before and the morning dew, got a little faster on the back 9. Some sod and mulch work on the first 4 holes to get rid of a the hard pan has improved the look, still too soon to tell how it will hold up. Always enjoyed this course and grew up playing it, but between reversing the 9s and the weekend price going up to $90, it’s lost its value to me. Trips out here will be less frequent, but still worth playing if you are in the area and don’t mind paying a premium.

    This course is a bit of a hike from Charlotte, but definitely worth the trip a couple of times every year. Fun mix of challenging and scoreable holes. Jackson Course was wet from all of the rain earlier this week, and it showed in the fairways and tee boxes in spots. The greens were in solid shape and rolled true. $55 on a Saturday morning is about as good as it gets in the area. $25 replay rate makes for an affordable 36 hole day as well.

    1st time playing, there’s some wild holes, blind shots, huge elevation changes, and some punishing misses. Greens were quick and rolled true. Fairways were very hairy everywhere and wet in spots. Apparently they got 16 inches of rain last week so that’s probably why they haven’t been able to cut the fairways but it was the equivalent of the second cut anywhere else. A second look is probably needed to give a fair final verdict.

Reply To: Short Game Lessons or Clinic

By B-Man on 5/23/24

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...
