Pros: A mixture of open greens and fairways along with some real tight areas that require pinpoint accuracy. Huge Concrete tees with large hole number markers.
Cons: In the summer bring a can of bug spray. The layout is confusing on a few holes. Front 9 is a good design. Back 9 is horrible IMO. I do not mind playing in the woods but this is more like a briar patch. Although some has been cleared holes 11, 12, 13, 14, 16 have thick briars on one or both sides of fairway. So do not attempt to find a lost disc unless you are wearing a suit of armor. I avoid the back 9 usually and just play the front 9 a couple times. Much more enjoyable for me. Finally 1,5 and 18 are close to parking lot or road. Error in shot could end up on Ash St (4 lane busy road) or into a car in the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: You have to back track from 3 to get to 4 and from 4 to 5. Be careful on 10, you may end up in the fenced in dog park or with a real unfortunate shot in the gutter. Seriously, had one go in gutter. Luckily we were able to lift the grate off and reach the disc. 13 takes you away from the rest of the course, so you have to back track to get to 14. 15 to 16 seems like you are lost due to the lack of signs and the distance between them. Again 16 to 17 is almost 1/4 mile walk.
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -Nice concrete pads (white tees - all holes)
-Good variation between open/straightforward holes and tight/wooded holes
-Course seems vastly improved from previous, older reviews
-Easily visible numbers at each hole, easy to navigate
-Holes set up for a variety of paths (conservative/risky & RHBH/RHFH)
Cons: -Back 9 is clearer than in the past, but could still be cleared further
-Flat (Eastern NC)
-Hole 13 has you walk back down the fairway to reach 14
-Hole 15 is hard to locate/play unless you are with someone that is familiar with the course
Other Thoughts: Hearing the plans for future work on this course, it seems like things will continue to improve. The local club hosted their first tournament this year and seem dedicated to addressing the known issues.

The potential for greatness
Pros: Good lengthy holes. "Greens around the hole" give you a feeling that its a gimme putt. Front 9 provides some open holes that are forgiving on mis throws. Back 9 is a little tighter, some shots being very technical. Three sets of tees for every hole.
Cons: Course is very flat and still 'under construction'. Once it gets settled in a little it can be great. The course may be a little difficult to navigate until it is finished. Also, there is little to no signage or footage marked on the course. No concrete pads.
Other Thoughts: As an 18-hole course, this is brand new. This shows on the back 9 and on the lack of certain features (footage, signs, directions). There is really no out-of-bounds, but a creek can come into play on hole 18. It may be a good idea to play the course through from the recreation tees (the shortest tees) because of the blind shots. The 3.5 is earned based on layout (could be higher when the course is settled in and has more signs, etc.).
