Will be nice in a few weeks.
I enjoyed the round. However the greens had been recently aerated and were patchy in places and I would have liked to have known. I am sure in a few weeks the course will be in great condition. The staff was very friendly, and were quick to bring us another cart when ours died out on the course. Luckily the deal from golfnow made it worth the drive from Raleigh!

Decent Value Course for the Area
Nice course, especially for the price. I have played it twice now and have enjoyed myself both time. Does not compare with many of the other courses in the area, but is definitely worthwhile for a change of scenery and for a cheaper round. Everyone there is very friendly, pace of play has not been a problem, and the course is designed nicely. The second time the greens were rough due to aeration, but I was aware of that before booking.

This is a fun course
Elevation changes, doglegs, water, and a variety of tees make this course as challenging as you want to make it. You will want to play more than once to get all the nuances offered by this course.

Fox Fire, Red or Gray course is a wonderful golfing experience.
The Gray is a very challenging course even from the white tees. You are greeted in the parking lot with your cart and instructions in case you haven't been there before. The pro shop staff is very friendly and polite. Greens were in excellent condition for this time of the year. The only negative that I have every had about the course are the geese that reside on the course. There are several holes where you have to walk very strategically. Every time there is a hot deal with Fox Fire, it will be on my play list.

Coming along nicely
The new ownership has been working since November so I would imagine a lot of the improvements will be more noticeable in the spring. The rye grass is a bit patchy on the fairway. Greens for the most part roll true and even and are nicely groomed. A few have some patches of bare areas with sand and chunks of grass.
One item I wish they'd take care of is installing some ball washers. There's not a single one on the course. Also the bunker rakes are pretty scarce.
Nice course though and I look forward to seeing how it perks up in the spring.

I have played this set of course a number of time over the past 5 yrs. Considering the issues surrounding the golf club, i have to say, the courses are in great condition. I enjoy the layouts, and if they are in good shape, they can be challenging. The fairways were in good shape, as was the greens. The only issue i had wasnt a big big one, the bunkers could have used some work. I will continue to play these courses as long they are in good shape, and the price stays fair .
