Great course, and played it the week it opened so still relatively quiet. The course is incredibly challenging, with some great views. THe course has a ton of elevation so expect to walk alot. Some of the holes have experienced some issues, but that's to be expected at the beginning of the season. Course would have gotten 5 stars had they offered a course layout or map on the scorecard, since alot of the holes are blind.

My favorite North Carolina course. It's about 1 1/2 hours up I-77 from Charlotte near the Blue Ridge Pkwy and spittin' distance from the Eastern Continental Divide. Played there last year. Loved it. Took a day off this year to make the trip and play two rounds (18 hole replay is $25). Spectacular views especially on the back. Up & down or left & right slopes are a near constant. Old Beau is well-thought out and challenging without being gimmicky. At least two holes are right-angle doglegs. One par three demands a shot crowded by trees while another is to a green waaaay way down there surrounded by dense greenery but also includes ball saving embankments. I'm a walker. This course is unwalkable. At two points the incline was so severe the cart wouldn't go up. Twice I found myself sliding backwards! If you can't see what your shot might be headed into drive the cart ahead and look. Several holes have huge areas that lure your shot into a lost ball abyss. On the good side of that I got on a couple of par-5s in three because the fairway slope gave my club another 30-40 yards! Greens are spectacular. Not pretty. Kind of splotchy. But they're fast, soft (on a Monday a maintenance guy was out soaking them down) and run beautifully true. Most of my high score was from reading breaks that weren't there. (Guy in the clubhouse said I was overthinking it.) Heat might take a bit more of a tole through August, it was unusually hot for that elevation. But If I have a complaint it was having to wait for sprinklers to turn out of the way. Guarantee you have never seen any hole on a public course in the Charlotte area similar to #17 at Old Beau. If you're a skier, think double-black diamond steep from about 150 yards out to about 50 yards from the green, which is steeply elevated. To the right, a babbling brook. If you keep it in the middle you will be on in three. What a hoot.

Tough mountain golf at its best. see message board posting about my round. It took so long as a twosome do to not knowing the course. took a little over an hour and a half to get there. play a replay round if you want to score better. It would have been a perfect score if the fairways were mowed (it caused the ball to get no roll out and plug a lot). Saw no other players besides to another twosome the whole day.
