Golf course with many unique hole designs! Buy the course layout book if you don't have a app that shows the distances to hazards. Many blind shots!

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!

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.
