Needs Work

Normally the greens are the best part of this course but today they were absolutely covered in spotty crabgrass which made every putt bumpy and get knocked off line. Some tee boxes were completely bare and dirt. Range has you hitting off mats currently but the balls are just old beaten up, rock hard, terrible balls.

Course is slightly going downhill. Maybe because it’s due to be sold for housing development at the end of the season.

Pace of play

It was terribly slow, especially when the other twosome playing with us stopped after the front nine.
Also, the fairways had not been over seeded so there was never a good lie.

Weeds on greens

First off let me say I’m pretty much a beginning golfer and I like to play at less expensive courses. Only real complaint is that there were weeds on almost all the greens. Other than that it seems like a decent course.

Nice round, but wet ground

Played a couple of times. Course is generally in pretty good shape. But winter conditions are never very good. Ground very moist and grass dormant so many shots are like hitting off bare ground. Probably nature of late winter/spring golf.

For a course so close to town, plays like a course in the country. Lots of trees, never feels congested and very few holes where a poor shot puts you in another fairway.

Staff very helpful and this will continue to be one my primary courses in the Raleigh area.

Equality and respect

The starters are always rude and very inconsistent when getting you off the first tee. They tell you where you are position in line and then reverse their decision. They slide another group in front of you. The rangers always follow people of color around the course and constantly are reminding them of guide lines that has been previously explained at the first tee. They constantly stop you while driving by everyone else.

Greens need work

The greens were fairly quick but they had small weeds growing in and knocked putts off line. They did hold my approach shots well but could have made a few more birdies without the stuff popping up.
