What’s Good: This course, which was previously known as Gastonia Municipal, is inexpensive and has a fun layout (I paid $30 on a Friday). It’s a very short course, even from the tips, but the condition of the greens make it challenging. They are hard and roll quickly, which makes it tough to get balls to stop on them. The fairways and tee boxes are in decent shape, and I was pleasantly surprised by the condition of the bunkers. This course is also very walkable, and there is a driving range on the property.
What’s Not So Good: Even though I did like the overall condition of the greens, there are a few that have small spots that need repair. Also, there are no hole markers here, which I found a bit odd. This is a busy course with many walkers and pace of play can be an issue.
The Takeaway: Catawba Creek/Gastonia Municipal is a solid little course with good greens that can be played for not a lot of money.
