Slack Staff

The PGA so called Professional sat in his office tearing down on a bag of chips idlely staring at his computer screen while the part-time associate fumbled with the check-in computer as the check-in line of paying customers grew. Poor excuse for representation.

i had played the course several times before i decided to join as a member over a year ago. i joined for several reasons. I played competitive golf in my younger years. im in my 50’s now and still play well.I wanted a challenging course. I play the back tees which are plenty challenging. No boring down and back holes. Very interesting and strategic layout. 4.5 stars by golf digest holds true! The course is always in great condition. The staff is awesome as well. Head pro Monty and the entire staff go out of their way for you! It is a great value as a perk. The practice facility is awesome . I dont think there is a better course in Raleigh for what they offer. Best public course in Raleigh in my opinion. I grew up on a country club as a kid that hosted the senior US open. I highly recommend it!
