You better putt

Slowest greens in wake county. If you teeth it don’t worry it will stop. If you chip to where you want it, it will not roll. If you are twenty feet out for birdie or par you better smack that ball. Every green has a mountain range on it.

Nice forgiving course

Good course for beginners, back 9 is harder than the front 9. It also moves slower on the back 9. Overall good time.

RGA Always Comes Through

Great central location in Raleigh, NC. Offers the perfect blend of difficulty while the openness of the course allows for errant shots. Would recommend this to any level of player! Set your tee time now!

Inconsistent Greens

The front nine were slow, like putting through sand. The back nine was true.

SLOW...

Course played as usual...greens are still in rough shape. Biggest issue was pace of play. The pace was brutally slow, which made for a very unpleasant round of golf.

Couldn’t make it again

So I played here on my birthday weekend Saturday, April 3. I was supposed to play yesterday May 4 but was not able to and missed my teatime and still got charged. I don’t fault the course for charging me as they have a 24 hour cancellation policy but I paid ahead and I cannot play because I got called to stay at work. I am a flight paramedic and was not able leave on time because I had a last-minute flight for a trauma patient on the highway. I actually travel from New Jersey down to North Carolina to play and like I said was not able to leave work on time and make my flight from Newark airport down to Raleigh in order to play on Wednesday, May 4. I am playing Thursday, May 5 as I am down here now so hopefully all goes well at the course and I will write another review after I play.

5.5 hour round...

12:50 Tee Time and finished at 6:20.
Had a group of five in front of us ( yes a group of five), and unbelieveavly, they were not the problem. The group in front of them, and the fact that apparently RGA doesn't employ a Marshall, were the problem. Most of the day, there were three and in a few cases four, groups on a hole at a time while the world's slowest foursome had a gap of two holes in front of them. I know there was a two hole gap, because on the fairway of the 11th hole, you are right next to fairway of the 13 hole ( 12 is a very short par 3), and when the slowest group in the world ( THAT NO MARSHAL EVER SAW, BECAUSE NO MARSHALL WAS ON THE COURSE), was teeing off on 12, while three groups were behind them on 11, there was no group on 13 at all.
Incredibly poor course managemnt on the part of the RGA staff.
A nice, short little course, which has some good spots. But apparently the staff is not interested in their jobs enough to manage the course so that everyone can enjoy it.

Too much money for the conditions

There is a cash only nine hole course that has better greens than this place. It’s only $13 to play there too. RGA is not worth $20 for 9 holes. If the greens were good and the fairways had grass then I might tell people it’s worth the money. Best green on the grounds is the practice green at the clubhouse.

Needs work

I really wish this course was in better shape, it could be a great course with great value. The tee boxes, fairways, cart paths and greens need alot of work. 2 greens on the back nine are very patchy with given 2 putt max. There are alot of other courses in better shape right now.
