Bryan Park Golf Club Players Course Review
Beauty Meets Challenge by David Theoret as printed on NCGolf.com.
Anyone who plays golf in the Greensboro, NC area is no doubt familiar with the Bryan Park golf facility. This 36-hole facility is home to two stellar courses: The Champions Course and the Players Course. The latter is an 18-hole championship course designed by George Cobb in 1974 and redesigned by Rees Jones in 1988. It features Bermuda grass fairways and tees and Bentgrass greens.
The Players Course has been named as a 4-Stars Best Places to Play by Golf Digest and one of America’s Top 100 Courses for Women by Golf for Women Magazine. General Manager Kyle Kolls has been there over 12 years and has assembled a great staff that is professional, friendly, and truly seems to love what they do. Most of the employees have been there for quite a few years. It truly is a treat to play and should be played by anyone in the area.
From the back tees, the Players Course measures 7018 yards with a course rating of 73.3 and a slope of 133. Mere mortal golfers will find that the White Tees (6,342/70.9/127) will give them all the golf they can handle and still leave with a little bit of dignity. Ladies can give it their best from the Red Tees (4,713/69.9/117). Four sets of tees make The Players Course fun and challenging for golfers of all abilities.
Before your round, be sure to hit the practice range located behind the starter’s shack; it’s included in your greens fees. It’s a full-length range, so you’ll be able to hit every club in your bag, which isn’t a bad thing, since you will probably use them all. There’s also a large practice putting area where you can get your speed down and try and figure out some of the breaks.
