The Belmont Lake Golf Club was named by Golf Advisor as on of the Best Golf Courses for Pace of Play in the U.S.

It is one thing to receive state-wide accolades and be listed among the Top Golf Courses in North Carolina. Consequently, Golf Advisor has also named the Rocky Mount course in its national rankings for 2019, too.

“Pace of Play” is something that any semi-regular golfer is familiar with and likes to see stay consistent. It does not necessarily mean the fastest round of golf. A mored accurate description would be, playing at an uninterrupted speed befitting of a given golfers comfort and skill level. explains, “Many circumstances affect “pace of play” at a golf course. Hard pin locations, thick rough and bad weather, things that lead to more strokes, can grind a round to a halt. Tee times that aren’t properly spaced or groups that merge into a five-some are other issues.”

The explanation concludes, “The dream scenario is an empty course where we can all fly through at our own favored pace. Nothing beats a day when you don’t wait for a single second. Since the time it takes to play is one of the biggest knocks against golf, pace of play is now more important than ever.”

As a result, Belmont Lake Golf Club is ranked #12 among Top Golf Courses for Pace of Play in the U.S.
