Even though it was extremely hot, there were ample areas to sit in the shade along the course to watch play. Bring your own chair as they do not allow spectator cart rental, at least not during tournaments. Cart path (walking path) had some rough areas and was a little "hilly", but beautiful all the same. The staff are all... More

This may be the most overated golf course in these United States. Because of its tradition and birthplace of golf in NC, and the fact that it has hosted two US Opens and several season ending PGA tour events (with more to come), this course is severely overrated in my opinion. I have played it 42 times and have had... More

No sand in the traps. Quality of grass in fairways poor.Yardage markers not available and can not carry your own bag all made hiring a caddie seem like the only option for playing well.

Checked off my "bucket list"! Championship Course. Reputation. Greens are very difficult. Cart path only makes it a very long walk.

It's number 2. What else can I say? The course was unbelievable. The caddies enhanced the experience. Nothing to dislike. Service is top notch throughout the entire resort.

My husband played it last week and it was a thrill for him to do so and he shot a 92 which is pretty good! Hard and challenging but a golfer's dream to play this famous course where Payne Stewart won! Check out the bronze statue of Payne's famous stance as he won the Open!

Take a caddie and walk if you can. Great experience. Very helpful caddie. Saved me 6-9 strokes reading the greens.

This is one of America's truly great Top 10 courses and is considered such by every golf reviewer you can think of. The two US Opens will be on this course in 2014, so what more is there to say?
