I live here and it is a great place to retire. We have two great Robert Trent Jones Golf Courses and a huge lake for fishing or boating. We have met so many wonderful friends.

Had a wonderful time at course. Only bad thing is I don’t know think paths are clearly marked nor distances. Weaves in and out of houses and very hard d to know where to go. Course in great shape and challenging.

But desperately in need of more water stops. This is a great course, challenging, and in good shape. A neighborhood ‘our’ course that serves the area, you will find plenty of challenge with very good rolling greens. The clubhouse is ‘southern friendly’ and you’ll enjoy...More

It appears most people think the beauty and exhilaration at Carolina Trace CC is at the Lake Course. Well; if the Lake Course is the Top Dog then it must be fantastic. We played the Creek Course and it was never boring. If you are...More

I would suggest that Dillon call the Pro Shop at 919-499-5611. There are different rates for different days, so I hesitate to answer. Ask for either Ollie or Dean and they will be more than happy to help him.
