This course's layout offers a spectacular view of the Neuse River, which was named after the Neusiok Indian Nation. But the neighboring Tuscarora Indians, part of the Iroquois Nation, called it "Cautonah" (pronounced gow-ta-no), or Pine-in-Water. The river comes into play on six holes, and there are water hazards that come into play on eight other holes. This course was built on rolling hills and its greens are well protected by sand and grass bunkers or large mounds. At least half of the tree-lined fairways are doglegs. The longest hole on the course is #8, a 536-yard, par 5, which allows long hitters a birdie opportunity. A water hazard protects the front of the green, so most golfers will choose to lay-up on their second shots. "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 32nd best under the category of "America's Top 75 Affordable Courses" in their 1996 list of "America's Best Golf Courses Everyone Can Play." It was also rated "The Best New Public Course in North Carolina" by the same publication in 1994.
