Falls Village Golf Club Course Review
I will be the first to admit that I was ecstatic about playing my first professional event at a golf course in Durham. When you think of the Raleigh/Durham area, you think of strong golf courses. This is not the case when it comes to Falls Village. The layout of the course is very short and quite quirky, and the greens are about one week away from being dead.
I am not a big fan of bashing a public golf course, because to be quite honest, I hope they come out of this rut and revive a once decent little track. There is one thing that does stand out about Falls Village, and that is the practice facility. The driving range is more that capable of holding 50 golfers at the same time, and the hitting area is massive, with multiple greens to work on your aim. There are also two practice greens that are adequate enough for someone to work on multiple length putts and chipping. The lone downfall of the practice area, is the undulation in the first putting green. It is excessive, and does not allow for a golfer to work on their putting without seeing 2-3 feet of break.
The course does have plenty of potential, but it honestly needs to be shut down for a few months to give the greens a break. The greens are spongy and already dying out in most spots and it is June. They have a long summer ahead, and need to get a firm grasp on these greens before they lose them. The rest of the course is where I see the potential. Falls Village has some decent length, sitting at just over 7,100 yards, but until the condition of the course improves, I dont see them surviving.
