I have played the course at least once a year since it opened over ten years ago. I don't see what the big deal is!?!? It's a nice course, but nothing special.If you want to play a mountain course this isn't one!It's open and mostly flat. There are many better courses (public and private) within 50 miles. Pinehurst or Hickory or any other Piedmont areas have more "mountainy" courses at better rates.To be challenged play the back tees--grip and rip since most holes are wide open and expect to see Gomer playing out of your fairway on another hole. I don't know why the course was built on the flattest site within 30 miles. The clubhouse is very nice and the employees are great!!
