Course Review and Comments
This is an extremely difficult layout for anyone over 10 handicap (I'm a 30)
I won't be back for some time, but I eventually will test myself against this final exam of a course in the future when my handicap is closer to single digits.
A few design issues - They need to give first timers a map to go from hole to hole. There are a few holes where the cart path runs up to the green, then has a U-Turn to drive back towards the players who are now hitting into the green you just finished. There's got to be a better way to get to the next hole than to come back down a fairway you just finished... Also, there are a number of blind shots, even from the front/middle tees. A layout card in the cart or on the scorecard would have made it much easier to figure out where to hit the ball.

Stay away form this place unless you have a big discount coupon or just want to support NCSU. At least wait until cooler weather when maybe they will be able to grow grass again.
