Cummings Cove Golf & Country Club
Some of the Tees are are a lilttle burnt. Some bad spots in Fairways but overall they were great. Greens are very difficult but are in great condition. Speed was prob 7.5 -8.5 but thats prob about as fast as they should be with all the slope. Bunkers were not in good shape but late afternoon t storms make them hard to keep in good shape with all the washing out...... Overall Course was great shape and it was worth the $.......Course is short but very tight. If u are 10 or less play the back tees for sure. par 3's are tough... Gps in Carts are very nice......Nice cart staff

Interesting Mountain Course
Really enjoyed this course. Very much a mountain course, with elevation changes, doglegs, interesting views and quite a few tight tee shots, particularly from the blue or gold tees.
Despite the rough winter in the area, the course was in great shape, including the fairways. Loved the layout ... each hole was a gem. The par 3's were particularly interesting . A great variety of holes and distances... I think I used every club in the bag. Carts were great, and the GPS system was about the best I have ever used. We did see a ranger, and pace of play was pretty good. Staff friendly and accommodating. The greens were in great shape but featured a lot of pitch. It will take a few times to learn the best spots to put the ball on the greens to avoid almost certain 3 putts.
No practice facility, but there was a large net to hit into to warm up by the first tee.
We plan to come back and play this course again.

This course is way overrated. While the pro shop staff is very friendly and the landscape offers some great views, this course does not deserve 4 stars.
The Good: The greens were generally in good shape and rolled true. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The Bad: The design is just weird, especially from the back tees.
The Ugly: You will find 1/2 the tee boxes are nothing but weeds or just plain dirt. The fairways are patchy. Trees are overgrowing the already narrow fairways. I have seen municipal courses in better condition. The course didn't get this way in a month--- it took years of neglect and there are no signs of a renovation.
There are so many better options in WNC.

Great Conditions, Tough Course
Cummings Cove is in very good condition. I played as a single and groups let me play through graciously. It is a good layout for mid and low handicappers. Beginners should consider an easier course. You will have many varied lies on the fairways. \\\\\the greens have significant slopes, but they are not ridiculous. It is a premium mountain course at a fair price. I will play it multiple times this season.

Nice mountain course
Cummings Cove is a challenging mountain course with elevation changes and beautiful views. The course is in great shape. I have played this course many times and always have an enjoyable experience.

Great mountain course
Greens are usually some of the best in the region for a public course. Lots of elevation change and some absolutely gorgeous views, especially on the back nine from hole 16. Front 9 is tree lined most of the way around and the back nine opens up a little bit more. Not a course where you can bomb driver every hole but very easy to shoot a good score if you keep it straight off the tee. 5 par 5's with 3 of them easily reachable for good players gives you plenty of opportunity to score. Some of the par 3's are tough, especially holes 8, 13, and 16. Overall a great experience if you're looking for good conditions and a fun layout in the mountains.

This course has great scenery and long-range mountain views.
If you enjoy mostly uphill, downhill and sidehill lies, this is a course you must try. Fairways in reasonable shape; greens in good shape. Staff and starter extremely accommodating. Recommend not playing Monday or Wednesday mornings because of members plays. Awesome views from most holes.
