USA Top 121-130M Golf Course Reviews
When it first opened to players almost thirty years ago, the Metedeconk National Golf Club gained national notoriety for both its beauty and the golf courses difficulty. The most interesting feature are the bunkers, which display an interesting melange of jagged/lacy edges and the thick underbrush lining the fairways and surrounding the greens. Trees are also present all over the course, i.e. small oaks and pines, together with red tipped/tall fescue grasses and thorns which frame the holes beautifully, but theyre almost impossible to play out. Playing the Metedeconk National Golf Club youll be playing a true classic, due to the golf courses well placed bunkers, its tree lined fairways and the subtly contoured greens, which made Trent Jones to be internationally renowned as one of the greatest golf course architects of our times.
When arriving at Minnosett, you will be greeted with a gorgeous clubhouse, and some of the best golf you can think up. If the 6,400 yard layout does not do it for you, then the scenery will appease anyones eye. With tree-lined fairways throughout, and strategically placed ponds, and ample view of the Neuse River, you have it all here. The front 9 sits at just over 3,100 yards, and scoring is all over the place. With both par 5s not even reaching 500 yards, you have ample opportunity to reach both in just two shots. The par 4s are not long by any means, and the 1st and 3rd holes are both drive able for the long-ball hitters. Once you have navigated through the front 9, you will be greeted with two of the longest par 4s on the course at 10 and 11, and both are also rated with the 1 and 3 handicaps respectively. The holes will capture many victims, with the Neuse River providing enough defense to guard against the easy birdies. Once you have escaped these two monsters, you will be rewarded with a reach able par 5 13th hole, and the scoring resumes. The rest of the round consists of another reach able par 5, and average par 4s in length.
Deep in the heart of Monroe, NC and is possibly the best public golf course in the state of North Carolina. I will go out on a limb and say you have not ever played it, let alone even heard of it. The practice facilities and clubhouse are nothing to brag about, but the golf course is far beyond any other public course in the area.

To describe it succinctly, the golf course at Muirfield Village is an integral part of Jack Nicklauss legacy, honoring his many contributions and accomplishments to the game, whilst offering a chance to prove themselves for the new generation of golf players.

Given the old-school feel of the place, you wouldnt be so amazed spotting Herbert C. Leeds sitting peacefully on the front porch in his squeaky rocking chair, cigar and whiskey in hand, talking about his favorite golf game with his friends.
