Knight's Play a well-maintained par 3

Posted February 7, 2013

Course: KNIGHTS PLAY, a par-3 course in Holly Springs (27 holes)

Weather conditions: Beautiful for Feb. 6. Temperature around 60, with a light breeze. The early morning chill kept a lot of people away, so we had no wait to speak of.

Course: Greens were fantastic. Only one of them not measuring up. They are working on it. Otherwise, they were rolling very true. Quite impressive. The tee boxes were very dry, but that's the weather right there.

Play: Didn't do too badly: 8-over 62 (par was 54).

I got lucky on a few holes, where I missed the green, but was close enough for an easy up-and-down.

This course has so many water holes, I played away from it purposely. But that caused me to overcompensate on the other side of the hole. However, this course allows you to do that without big penalties.

Worth noting: Food at the snack bar was very good, as usual. Driving range is massive. The people are very nice up there as well. I don't often think of KP, unless I'm short on time. The par-3 course is a great way to sharpen your short game.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll have to visit this weekend if it's not too nasty outside.

    That was not the case yesterday. The greens were very well manicured. Again, there was 1 that needs considerable work. But overall I was impressed.

    Yeah I've never played there without ball marks all over the greens. I've also had problems with slow play. You get that all around the triangle, but this is a par 3.

    I like KP but I have to disagree with you on the greens. Every time I play there it's like putting on the surface of the moon. Does anyone fix their ball marks? Of course this is not KPs fault... they do what they can.
