“Beautiful, but very unfair course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Visiting friends in Boone. My friend is a member. Great scenery and super good conditions .... but. - the greens are completely ridiculous ! I am a 10 hcp so I know golf and I know conditions. Greens are like an upside-down salad bowl---- impossible to not only hold the green, but to make a putt with the crazy speed. Even the PGA would complain. Never again....despite the wonderful conditions and scenery. No way ! And, it took 3 hrs to play the first 9 holes on 9/24 in the afternoon ! Cost ? -- excessive ! Fuggetaboudit !

“Great Course, Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Smack dab in the heart of Boone, this is a beautiful public course. But it does cost a pretty penny to play. The fairways are wide with a few sneaky creeks to watch out for. The greens are undulating and fast! Only complaint is that they didn't hesitate to put a couple of glacially-slow walkers in front of the four of us in carts. Really slowed things down for us.

“Mountain golfing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

A very good public course. The front nine lulls with mostly flat terrain, some raised tee boxes and greens. The back nine has great views, carries over scrub and hills to climb up or down to challenging greens, all providing a fun day of golf.

“Course is nice but...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

Before out trip we make a tee time for 8am on a Friday morning. for the 2 of us. So we arrive early 7:30am, we checked in and are waiting hoping they will let us start just a few minutes early. But no, but that part is okay. What we did not like was they they put another twosome with us. We wanted to play alone. There were a lot of local senior citizens playing that morning an they put us in with them. That's not what we wanted so we asked for a refund and left. Probably will never go back there. The course looked great but did not appreciate how they did out tee time. They should have said something when we called to arrange the tee time. So the Golf part of our trip was a big disappointment.
