Located in the heart of Greensboro, Gillespie Golf Course is a unique course in that it is a nine-hole golf course, but plays as 18. There are nine greens, but the course has 18 tee boxes. The course features small greens, many of which require shots to be correctly placed for putting success. The main hazard is a tributary of the South Buffalo Creek, which meanders through the course, coming into play on eight holes. A mature tree canopy of oaks and native hardwoods, along with 16 strategically placed bunkers put the finishing touches on this hidden gem.
