Great course picturesque views
Course is in great condition and was not over booked, will play there again!
OK Round -Rangers don't need to be so inaccurately pushy
Not busy, no back ups, but rangers wanted to make sure we were not holding anyone up and we weren't but they non the less continued to keep watch and be ever present. I don't understand this.
Nice shape but too expensive
This course was in better shape than most other public courses that I’ve recently played. Greens were in excellent shape and tee boxes were better than average. I just thought it was a bit pricey. Probably would return
Definitely caters to the members. We were a twosome and had 3 fivesomes in front of us. Had a non-players driving a personal golf cart, visiting friends with a newborn child and a dog. Practice area was nonexistent.
We are sorry to hear about your experience at the CCJC. Even though we are open to the public, our members will always be considered first and this will be true with any semi-private facility that you play. Taking this into consideration, and as long as they are not holding up play or disturbing others, we have no issues with members using their own carts to watch their friends, and fellow members, play. As far as there not being any practice facilities, we do have a practice putting green and driving range. The putting green is currently in the process of being replaced, but it was still available for use on the day you played.
Not worth it
I’ll start with the one positive which is the course layout. Fair but challenging at times and I enjoyed the overall layout. Unfortunately that’s the only positive thing I can say about this course. In reading the CCJC rules they state no denim allowed and they average a 3 1/2 hrs a round. I saw more people in denim on this course than I have in all the other rounds I’ve played combined. I don’t necessarily mind this other than the round is ~$65 and I’d expect a bit more enforcement of their own rules. In addition the pace of play was painful, 18 holes in just over 4.5hrs. We were staying close to the group in front of us as they were waiting for a group ahead of them as well. For the price , I’d expect a ranger to help keep the pace of play to the standard 4 hrs as I don’t think 3.5 hrs, especially on a Saturday is realistic. The course shape was just ok, lots of damage in fairways though the majority of the greens were in good shape and rolled true.
Overall I feel like the shape of the course and the pace of play doesn’t align with the overall cost per round. There are better courses for the money in the area and I would recommend them over this CCJC.
We are sorry to hear about your experience at the CCJC. We are trying our best to make sure that everyone has the proper attire on, and we will do a better job of ensuring that in the future. The typical round of golf is between 3 and a half to 4 hours, but it was an extraordinary day and the facility was packed with players. With this being said, we feel that 4 and half hours is a reasonable pace, considering the circumstances. We do have a ranger, and he does his best to maintain an acceptable pace of play, but there’s only so much that can be done with the number of players we had on the course that day. Considering it was the middle of April when you played, the course hasn’t had adequate time to completely grow out, but the course conditions will continue to improve, as the weather gets warmer.
Where is the staff?
Memorial day is a busy golf day. Checking in was uncomfortable, i was not greeted just stared at until I spoke. No starter, people were going off whatever tee they wanted which slowed us greatly when we reached the back 9. We were hit into multiple times, a couple of them by kids who were bouncing all around the course playing holes multiple times and jumping through holes in tibget in front of groups. No ranger was ever seen. Then there was the issue around the greens, where you could be 5 ft from the green on the "fringe", bit was hitting off of bare ground with rocks all over. Never coming back, highly disappointed.
We are sorry to hear about your experience at the CCJC. We are currently in the process of hiring new staff, and they are still being trained on how to approach and talk to customers. We have a starter, but he was on the course handling pace of play issues. We are disappointed to hear about the kids bouncing around the course like that, and that issue has been addressed.
Great staff but way overpriced
The staff could not have been more friendly and the driving range was great, but for $67 for 18 this course has lost its mind. The greens are covered in weeds, the fairways are spotty, and the rough is nonexistent. In parts the rough is just clay and rocks. If this course were in Wake County you’d pay $55 on a weekend at most. If they fixed it up it could be a great track.
Well kept, low amenities
Course is very well maintained. Not terribly challenging. Pace of play was the fastest on an 18 hole course Ive ever experienced.
Real good, Except
Very nice course , but the cart paths are horrendous in places and need immediate repair
You should read this review
Course: decent | Cost: too high | Amenities: low to very low | Pace of play: normal
Club owner, playing in the threesome behind us sent the ranger to tell us we were holding them up. The ranger reluctantly delivered the message, almost as though he were forced. If the owner wasn’t looking for his balls in the woods all day, he would have noticed we were playing right behind the group in front of us.
