This course is the area’s oldest. It is set in the woods over hilly terrain. Accuracy is more important than length. A variety of shots are needed to score well. The course has several hole locations to give it some variety. It is probably the most used course in the area as it is close to UNCC and gets many students playing the course. Twice per year pins are moved. In the spring they are moved to the long positions and in the winter the shorts.
