Pros: great course. short par 3s to long par 5s. has a little elevation through out the course. hole 6 aka the skinny is a challenge for all players.
Cons: FIRE ANTS!!! the back 9 is covered in them. watch where you set your bag and where you step.
Other Thoughts: overall a great course, kinston has done alot of work over the past year ive played here. this is also the course i picked up my first ace at. so it will always be a great course for me:)

Pros: The course was in great condition and very well marked. They have running water and clean established bathrooms. There is also ample parking with in the great course layout. All of the tees had signs with a small map and lengths on them. Most signs had pars marked also. All tee pads had benchs and/or bag posts. This course seems to have a little bit for everyone from beginners to more advanced. I really wish I had a local course like this.
Cons: Lots of ants when we played. They were everywhere and they bit my wife alot. She almost didn't play the back nine because of them. A local bartender said that it was due to the heavy rains so I would play when it has been nice lately or spray yourself and your bag heavily.

Pros: This is one of the best courses my wife and i have played. Great sign's and tricky enough to keep us comming back. They have all the storm damage cleaned up now so play is open for all holes.
Cons: there was some vandelism on &,8 and 9 with the signs being torn down. we found the sign for 7 and put it back but could not find the rest.

Pros: A Quiet course secluded, no foot traffic, with some challenges a lot of trees, and no water hazzards.This course is well laid out. The front 9 are in the wood with some blind baskets and dog legs. The back 9 are in more open fairways with tunnel vision shots. All tee pads are concrete with signs to show holes distance and pars, Trash cans, benches and drinking fountains are plentiful. The Association & parks and rec take great care of this course. A pleasure to play! Hole #6 is my personal favorite its a short par with tree obstructions and the basket is on a raised mound.
Cons: No cons that I can think of or saw
Other Thoughts: Mix doubles during summer on Tuesday Nights at 6. Well worth the stop. Great time for 3 dollars.

Pros: Great, well maintained course. Locals are always friendly here. 2 sets of concrete tee boxes well marked with painted front edges. Every tee pad has a bench. Great signs with par distance and map of holes. Well laid out mix of open and wooded shots. Hole 6 reminds me of plinko from price is right. Variety of long 500' to short 150' shots. Hole 9 ends close to 1's tee box so its easy to play 9 at a time if you want. Back 9 is a little more open and than front. Wraps around a soccer/baseball complex with bathroom facilities and water fountains, but keeps you separated enough you don't have to worry about a stray disc landing in the middle of a soccer game. 7 and 8 have alternate tee's to change it up if you feel like it.
Cons: Parking lot is huge but still tends to get crowded when there's ball games going on. All i could think of for cons.
Other Thoughts: Great course for beginners and pros alike. Pro box makes it an entirely different challenge for the course.

Pros: Multiple tees and the map illustrates the whole well. The front 9 is not too long, except for a few holes, but it's wooded most of the time, so it can make or break your round. The back 9 is shorter and more open, although it goes in and out on some holes. It tests your accuracy pretty well, since most of the holes are tight, in the woods, with tight lines. From ams, the holes aren't too long at all, just tight. Haven't played pros, but the view I had from pads were way farther and tougher. Expect a high score from pros, unless you're pro yourself, but that's my view. Barnet is well put together, and I'd play every opportunity I would get.
Cons: Barnet is extremely lefty backhand favored. So unless you have accurate flicks and excellent anhyzer for right handers, you might have trouble. Woods are EXTREMELY thick so avoid that at all costs. Not many cons to say.
Other Thoughts: My first time playing this course was in the 2011 Kinston Ice Bowl. 2 rounds and I shot 56 & 59 from ams. Barnet will definitely test you. One of the best courses I've played. Enjoyed every second of it. If you hit tress in the beginning, don't get flustered, because there's more trees to come!

 One of the best in eastern NC

Pros: One of the better front nines in North Carolina from the blue tees. The holes on the front nine vary in both distance and lines and none of them really feel like filler holes. I particularly enjoyed holes 2 which is a long uphill anhyzer shot and holes 5 which is a long 500 foot hole that requires a long but accurate tee shot that must be placed well to allow for an easier second shot to the basket. The back nine was not as all around solid but had some great shots with holes 11 and 16 standing out. Hole 16 was a great elevated teeshot that requires an accurate shot from between two large old trees.

The course also is clean with trash cans well placed around the course. There are benches on almost every hole and bag holders on almost every hole (some have been vandalized). Concrete teepads are on every hole and there are a couple of holes with alternate longer pins (hole 7 being the best one) with orange bands.

Plenty of signage makes navigation very easy and the locals are nice enough to help you out if you lose your way somehow.
Cons: A few of the teeshots from the blue tees seemed a bit neglected or not as well thought out. Hole 9 from the long was way too tight off the tee and hole 15's teepad had a ton of branches hanging down in front of it, to be able to tee off from 15 blue, I would have had to crouch down to throw. Some of the back nine holes felt uninspired, hole 10 was just an open field shot, holes 17 and 18 were a pretty big let down as finishing holes after the great hole 16.

The fairways needed some serious trimming as many limbs and smaller trees had taken over more of the fairway than they should have.

Some of the red tees on the back nine are almost too easy or short, hole 14 really stood out as the best example of this followed closely by 12.
Other Thoughts: Hole 6, the skinny, was quite skinny but the distance really negates the skinniness of the fairway.

Overall this course is one of the better courses in eastern NC. The course has a good mix of open and wooded holes. The back nine is what kept this course from getting a better rating from me, it just didn't play as well as the front nine (although it was still pretty good).

Pros: Clean park, Easy to read signs, Multiple tee pads very long or short. Loved the layout of both long and short holes.
Cons: Back nine was kinda hard to tell where the next tee was. I think hole 17 or 18 plays right next to a baseball or soccer field so be careful not to hit a little kid coming out of the woods as you cant see the basket around the dogleg.
Other Thoughts: Locals are nice and welcoming. Really nice park, better than Fayetteville parks. They also have wednesday doubles at like 5 or so.

Pros: This is a great park! It has a great layout of holes, great flow, and super use of elevation to make the course more difficult. It was very easy to find your way from hole to hole.
Cons: On the way out of the 18 th hole, we ran into some softball players practicing in front of the basket.
Other Thoughts: Will definately be playing this course again. It was well worth the 1 hour and 35 minute drive.
