Nice with lots of potential!
Pros: I played all 9 holes of this course today. The baskets are very good quality and numbered well. Each hole has it's own challenge and, like the other's have said, they make great use of the trees. The first tee pad is concrete and larger than most. I enjoyed some of the super narrow fairways and it plays fast...nice round of 9 today.
Cons: Cons? The gravel tee pads were a little hard to get used to in my Brooks running shoes. Not sure if different shoes would have helped. The course is on a small footprint...but, like others have said, there is potential to expand to 18. I would have liked the tee pad signs filled in with hole length, direction, etc. The road sign on 281 north is really good...but, they need a bigger sign on the trailer that serves as the club house. There were no maps or score cards today. And, ATT had no service there, so I could not get to my PDGA app...but, that is not RNDGC issue.
Other Thoughts: I would definitely play this course again. Would probably like to play it twice to get a full 18 for my 5.00. Was too hesitant to do that today. But, if I can meet the owner, I will certainly ask. And, RIGHT NOW, the bridge is out that is part of the directions on this site. So, just go all the way into Confluence and take 281 North, RNDGC will be about a mile out of town on your right.
Will definitely play here again and look forward to seeing it grow!

Red Neck is definetely not White Trash
Pros: An isolated course in an isolated town. You are truly away from it all here. Course caters to beginners while still employing trees as obstacles in such a way to keep more seasoned players from getting bored. Well maintained grounds and huge gravel tees. Outside of the isolated ambience the highlights were the tight pine grove alley of hole #5 and the several tricky but possible ace runs here. Close to other pay to play options of Nemacolin and Seven Springs so paying a small fee not so bad in return for the remoteness and stress free surroundings. Very well maintained so disc loss is at a minimum.
Cons: It is flat and not much can be done regarding this. Nothing the serious DGer craves here. Nothing truly unique or buzz worthy that would bring players all this way to play a round. Baskets for holes 5 and 3 are very close to one another. Tough to cater to beginners and draw serious Dgers as the 2 don't enjoy the same types of courses.
Other Thoughts: Spoke with the proprietor. A very friendly man who wants the course to take hold and sustain itself. There is actually a huge meandering river, some woods and a pre-revolutionary war cemetary to the rear of the property. It would be cool to see these incorporated into a 18 hole design. Not many courses have a historic cemetary and a river as an obstacle. If you are in the region and playing Seven Springs I would stop by for a relaxing round. I found the small town feel and the course to be a breath of fresh air.
