Winter Golf

Wil Mar is one of my favorite courses in the area. I love the layout of the course. It’s not overly long and difficult but fun for all levels of golfers. The greens are in fantastic shape and pretty fast, even with all the rain and the cold weather. The course was cart path only and very very wet in areas but we’ve had a ton of rain lately.

For the money, this is my favorite course in the Raleigh area.

Slow pace

It's December so why have tee times before 9: 00 Knowing you're going to have a frost delay and have cart path only play, hour after my tee time and slow play only got nine and would not give a credit for nine cuz I booked on golf now.

I had golfed there before good starter. To day I was thirty minutes late because I had to schedule a tooth extraction with an oral surgeon. When I got there my friend was just teeing off. after I checked in and went to the starter I ask him if I could advance to meet my friend and he said I could not golf with five, Bastardly SOB. The only reason I went there was to play with my friend. So I crumpled my receipt and tossed it on the ground. As I left I said I will never golf there again. And I mean it. So I went to my home course and golfed there.

Rude staff

Overdoing the China virus nonsense in a big way! No flexibility there’s no reason for them to make people wait to clear a green before you tee off. All under the guise of the lovely china virus

Self inflicted slow play.

All was fine except pace of play.
Apparently with short daylight, course starts with split tees( tee off on both nines) with no slot for back nine to turn to. Our tee time was 11:50. Starter( who was very nice), said they were running on time, with tee times every ten minutes.. After the 11:40 teed off, we pulled into position and were told another group, turning from back, was ahead of us. Course was packed, so obviously this led to very slow play. Situation was verified when group that was worked in did not play back nine. So, Wil-Mar has built in slow play on busy days. Suggest groups starting on back on busy days understand they are either playing nine holes, or will be on standby for an opening.

Hello. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the course conditions to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Wil-Mar Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Issues with cup placement

I play this course 10 - 15 times a year. The only criticism I really have is the cups are always put near the edge of the greens on most of the holes. This limits the use of the greens, effects the score adversely and overall makes for an unpleasant golf experience. I have spoken tom other golfers while playing and the consensus is the same.
