A truly satisfying golf experience. You open with 4 fantastic holes giving you a sneak peak of the lake and what is to come on the final 3 hole stretch. While some of the middle stretch, particularly the par 4s, do not provide a great memory they do offer a championship test of golf (there's a reason they play the Men's ACC Championship here). One could argue that the there no equal in terms of scenery/great holes in NC that the final 3 holes provide. The course is best played in the spring and fall when the brutal heat and rain of NC do not affect conditioning negatively.
This was designed as a residential property first. If you view the Uwharrie Peninsula on Google Maps you will see the large majority of premium land was used in residential development. I think Fazio captured the 18 best holes possible given his restriction to property development.
