This course threads through a former sand quarry and has the feel of a maze.

A very gimmicky course. Unfortunately, the guy who puts our golf trips together likes it, and puts it into the rotation when we play Pinehurst.

Great course that will leave a lasting memory! Enjoy the course for what it is and uniqueness! Easy drive from RDU/Raleigh on the way to Pinehurst. Course was in great shape and courteous staff!

As interesting a course as you will play. Great shape. Greens were very challenging - one in particular gave me a putt where the pin was 10 feet above me, no joke. Course also had the single most intimidating approach (on a par 5 no...More

Great Mike Strantz golf venue. Memorable. Could not be played without a yardage guide, however. We lucked out with a guide plus a couple of local golfers who knew the course we’ll.

Beautiful, awesome. Visited April 2018. Design is crazy. Must see and play. Course is designed to make you think and hard to read.

Plan to play this course for at least two days in a row. The first round will be a learning experience. Maybe on the second one, you can score! A fabulous layout.

Sounds crazy right? I say it's a MUST play (and it is) but Mike Strantz was the most evil course designer ever. Both are true. Look, if you know your distances of your clubs then it should be easy. Big fairways, big tee boxes, big...More

I concur with the prior posts. The course is hilly enough and has a sand base and drains well so rain and wet areas should not be an issue. The problem is as noted by others, there is still a lot of walking that has to be... More
