Starmount Forest Country Club Course Review
A true members course. Sitting at just over 7,000 yards, Starmount Forest will suit the eye of any, and every golfer around. Dont let the lack of practice facilities turn you away from this classic beauty, which was actually once the home of the Greater Greensboro Open, hosting the likes of Sam Snead and Gary Player. Of course in the modern world, if you want to attract golfers, you need to have the most immaculate facilities around which Starmount does lack.
The driving range is quite small, and you will not have the ability to work on any club higher than a 2-iron. The short game area consists of two putting greens, and no bunkers. One of the greens is quite undulated, which does allow for golfers to work on their chipping and putting with a variety of shots. The second of the two putting greens is tucked in the middle of the parking lot, and is very flat and tends to burn out from the heat. I would personally not recommend going to Starmount if you are looking to practice for a few hours, but if you are looking for a solid golf course and strong scoring this is the place for you.
The golf course at Starmount is fairly straight forward, and lacks the quirkiness most courses have today. The first hole is dead straight, and is about as easy as it gets in terms of opening holes. The rest of the front nine is about the same, with the exception of the 5th hole, which is a strong dog leg left. With that said, you will need nothing more than a 5-iron off the tee, and then a short wedge shot awaits. The rest of the round goes back to the straight shots and easy golf that most members enjoy, with low scoring always in the bag.
