Fox Squirrel Country Club -- Fun coastal golf
Review by: John M The name of this course has been changed to The Lakes. A pretty and fun residential golf course. The course is very playable for high handicapps (I get into the 90s about half the time, but have never broken 90). I had 6 sraight bogies and a birdie on the front, which is a good day for me. Most houses are well back from the course, so you aren't pestered by lawn mowers, leaf blowers, etc. The course is a little remote and the facilities quaint, like golf circa 1963 - you expect black and white tvs or something. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were staying over at Carolina Beach, and rode the Ft Fisher ferry to Southport, which made for a very nice little trip, and a nice day of golf.

Mount Mitchell Golf Club -- Great Public Course
Review by: Anonymous Probably the nicest public course in the North Carolina mountains. Beautifully maintained fairway grass. Scenic. Mostly flat, in the S. Toe River valley, with the Black Mountain range and Mt. Mitchell in the background. Some private residential subdivisions around the course do not intrude unattractively. Not a terribly difficult course if you hit it straight. If you don't, you'll be in for a tough day. Holes 12, 13 and 14, a par 5 five followed by two long, tough par 4's, the last one crossed by the S. Toe River, are a real challenge. Greens moderate speed. Carts required during busy weekend periods and carts must be kept on cart paths at all times. Pull carts (trolleys) not permitted. Play can be fairly slow when course is crowded on the weekends. Low key, friendly owners and staff. Green fees top out in the high $70 range (2003-2004).
