We played the "front 11" of Diavolo yesterday and LOVED it. I took the wife and kids, so we played from where we expected the red tees to be based on the maps. Red tees are not there yet, but I'm sure they're coming. From the red tee location, it's a very playable rec course, even for beginners. From the Blue tees, it's a beast. That said, we didn't encounter a single hole we'd consider unfair. There are lanes to the basket on every one of the holes we played.

There's a mixture of long, open holes and your typical tight, wooded North Carolina holes. All in all, a wonderful course. Kudos to CADL and the Town of Cary for bringing us a top notch course. I can't wait to see (hopefully) high level tournaments hosted there in the future.

Man I can't wait to try this course out. I took a day off work next week to come out and experience it but all this hype has me itching to sneak out sooner.

I might have to get a campsite at Jordan Lake sometime in the future (post covid) for a discation. With Buckhorn, Rock Ridge and now Diavolo, this area is a destination for sure. Buckhorn is my second favorite played East Carolina course to DB's and now I have no excuse to not played Rock Ridge with this new gem so close.

Heard some second-hand updates on Rock Creek at Cedarock Park, while playing it during the Sneeky Pete tournament this past weekend.

Yes, it's practically a certainty to become permanent.
However, the wooded/creekside holes will NOT be permanent, since they interfere with walking trails and the camping area. They will receive concrete pads, but no permanent baskets. Baskets will only be placed there for tournaments.
So in order to have 18 permanent holes, new holes will be created on the wooded hillside above the creek. But those new holes will probably just be skipped for tournaments, since the temporary creekside holes are so good. An odd situation for a course.

This year's iteration of Rock Creek was one of the more challenging layouts I've seen. Brand new for this year were a woods+creek 900 ft. par 5, a tightly wooded 500 ft. par 4, and 580 ft. par 4 with a wide open tee shot and a tight tunnel approach. All three of these new holes averaged way over par for MPO. I'm curious what layout they'll settle on permanently.

Definitely play Rock Ridge. Before Diavolo opened, it was, IMO, the best course in the extended Triangle area.

The outstanding Forest Hills temp course in Durham will be up and open to the public this Friday, 30 Oct. During the weekend it will host the Matt Keatts Memorial tournament. Layout is the same as the previous few years, except holes 5 and 6 have been removed (short hole by the tennis courts, and the short traffic island hole), and you can find a map on uDisc.

Might be muddy and wet from the rain we’re forecasted to get, but still a highly recommended experience for anyone in the area. It’s the tournament I look forward to most every year.

Will it be open for a bit afterwards or is it set up to only be used for the tournament?
