Fayetteville Golf & Country Club -- FGCC
Review by: Luke #1-easy warm up hole. #2-OB right, water hazard may come into play on drive, can reach green in 2 if you fly the creek. Second round, plays as a long par 4. #3-a chip shot, but still a difficult par. #4-long par 4, OB right, water left. Second round, short par 5. #5-short uphill par 3. Deceptively difficult green. #6-water left, pine trees right. Green very sloped at the back. #7-Difficult uphill second shot to an evil green. Super slick and no straight putts. #8-Cut the corner with a sharp hook if you're brave. Safe play to the LZ sets up easy par. #9-Good finishing hole with OB right. Greasy green with lots of breaks. Lay up short with the drive (or tee off with a 3wood) or you'll have tree trouble on the approach. Overall, this is a good course for beginners. Short and not much sand. OB and water hazards only come into play if you hit a really bad shot. If you miss the green, miss short. Up and down very difficult if you go over. Slicers will have many penalty strokes from OB right (14 of the 18 holes). Grain runs west on all greens. Lots of very subtle breaks. Play with a local for entertainment and help with reads. Don't believe everything they say. 1,6, 8 and 13 are birdie holes. 5,7, and 9 just be happy with par. The occasional golfer can have a good time and scrape together a decent score. The scratch golfer will not be challenged. Long drivers will end up with lots of half wedge approaches. Local custom is to play large groups (5 or 6 somes). Bring at least a foursome or be prepared to wait on every shot.

Memphis Country Club, The -- A fine example of Donald Ross design
Review by: Mark This is a well regarded club that both respects its past and is building for the future. Certainly some features from Ross are gone, but much of the bunkering and green construction are still there. Greens are now "Champions Bermuda" and the fairways are Zoyza (sp?). Beautiful mature trees are everywhere and come into play on most holes. Greens had good speed and tricky breaks, even after being top-dressed and rained upon. Anyone who enjoys playing classic golf courses would enjoy playing this track.
