An opportunity missed
Pros: disc catcher baskets, convenient bath rooms beautiful views of Badin Lake, walking and hiking trails, and fishing areas there is a place to launch your canoe or kayak, there are plenty of picnic tables available to rest and have a snack. Some trees have been cut and some cleaning of the area of the course is underway, much more is needed
Cons: No signage at the course entrance, No distances at tee. Plenty of picnic tables provide a good chance of hitting a picnicker, walking path around course also provides an opportunity of hitting someone. Tee area, well there are no tees just tee markers, a paver, also the area is marked with 4X4's that have the hole number on them and these are located so that you can easily hit your hand on them on your follow through also most of the areas are unleveled. . There are to many short holes and nothing over 300 feet, holes. There are a goodly number of trip hazards, downed trees still laying on the ground, briers, thorns, and fireants. Undergrowth is taking over due to a lack of maintenance.
Other Thoughts: The Uwharrie National Forest consist of over 50,000 acres and they only allowed the use of this small plot for a course, a maximum of 5 holes is all the point can support, there is a multipurpose field that could handle another hole. There is a great area for a course next to the point but that area was not allowed to be used. This was a great opportunity missed by the US Forest Service. As you approach the west end of the parking lot you will see white and blue post on each side of the drive to the rest rooms. The ones on the left are to the 1st tee. With time and a lot of work this could be a fun short course to play but only 9 holes it is diffidently not a destination course, if you are in the area and do not mind that a mile and a half of the trip is on a dirt road you can give it a try, and Fox Chase is close by but a good bit further than 7.7 miles So far I have hit 2 picnic tables the good thing is that they were not being used at the time
