This course is a hidden gem! The two nines are very different--the front nine is like a mountain course with steep elevation changes and very few flat lies; the back nine has lots of water, bunkers, and the feel of a Myrtle Beach course. The views from the front nine, in particular, are breathtaking. The pro shop is in a log cabin built in 1733, and the Cafe is in a historical house built in 1773. The staff are friendly, helpful, and exude Southern hospitality. This course is worth the drive, challenging to play (tips are 7059 with a slope and rating of 75.0 and 141), unbelievable views, and just fun to play. The tee boxes and greens were in great shape, the bunkers had nice sand (although there were a couple on the back which had some grass growing in them), and the fairways were manicured nicely, but do have some minor spots where the grass is growing back in. It's not enough to detract from the experience. What a great course! Try it out. Seniors play on Tuesdays for $35, and the rest of the week it's $50, which includes lunch. I will definitely be back.
