Bull Creek Golf Course

Posted Updated

LOUISBURG — This week WRAL's Jeff Gravley headed to Louisburg's Bull Creek Golf Course and hole number 11, which is a short 138-yard par 3.

"What we tried to do with this hole is build it around a pond that had already been there, and we wanted to fix it where if you bail out right you can still make par, but if you went right at it and didn't have the right club in your hand, you could get wet," said club pro Jack Edgerton.

Edgerton's shot landed dry, green and about 6 feet from the hole. Make that 2 greens in regulation as Jeff makes his shot as well, but he is was no where close to Edgerton's effort.

"Well at least we can pull putter here," Edgerton said. "We don't have to worry about club selection."

The greens at Bull Creek are the courses strongest feature, but you would never know it by Jeff's birdie putt, which came up short.

"I don't see a lot [of break] in there, just hopefully I don't leave it short," Edgerton said. "Well, I got lucky. That's the way it's supposed to happen. You can't let an amateur beat you, notice I say that now."

Edgerton chalked up a birdie, and Jeff finished with a solid par.

The front nine at Bull Creek opened in 1996, and the complete 18 in 1998. Plus, you can't beat the price of $15 to walk and on the weekend you can ride for $27.
