Slowly going downhill

Love the layout,and the toughness of the course its a challenge. However. The conditions are really sliding down hill. Fairways on the front 9 are covered in crabgrass. Bunkers need major work. Greens were in good shape but very slow.. i would love to play here more. But $65 greens fees for the type of shape its in i cant do it.

Great conditions, challenging course

This course was in great shape. Greens were rolling true. I think I counted about 3-4 tee boxes that needed a trim but it wasn’t a big issue. The layout is beautiful and challenging. If you are playing for the first time I recommend going on their website and using their “View the Holes” as you play because there are some blind tee shots and creeks that you can’t see from the tee. The course ate me up from the tips but looking to come back with some knowledge of the course to do better. Also, the practice facilities are nice.

I guess you did not notice all the crabgrass on the front nine. This course needs a major makeover

Beautiful, challenging course, would recommend.

This course is more of a mental challenge than anything - almost every hole has some trick to it like a hazard or tough green etc. But it makes for a really fun round. The area had bad thunderstorms two days prior and it was a little moist out there on some holes, but all in all, it was in solid condition. Looking forward to returning soon!

Great layout nice greens

Challenging course. The greens are great. Great pace of play. The hot dog at the turn wasn’t the greatest, but the snack bar isn’t fully open yet.

Great course for the money

One of the better courses in the Chapel Hill/Durham area for the price. Pace of play was easy, I would advise not going out there if it rained the day prior, does get muddy on most holes.

Wet weather

Played the day after high wind and tornado warnings plus rain in the area. The course, therefore was wetter than usual and the greens were much slower than normal. Cart path only makes this course a bear especially with wet and windy conditions. Good news is the pace of play was whatever we wanted it to be. I still enjoy this course and would recommend it to others. Not sure I woulld want to play it everyday. Staff was very accomodating.

Really enjoyed playing the course. Was a little wet but all courses around here are in the same boat with the weather. Greens rolled true. Look forward to playing during the season.

The Preserve

It hasn’t rained in two weeks and the course was a swamp land. Tee boxes had no grass fairways looked like a goat pasture.

A little soggy, but enjoyable

The wet weather has really kept a lot of courses soggy since the new year, but the preserve seems to be starting to dry out. Can’t wait to get back out ther and play again!

Still very wet conditions

I like the lay out of the course. They still are very wet and very little grass growing. I have play other courses this week and they much more grass and not as wet. Hopefully the conditions will improve in a few weeks.

Greens fast and undulating. Fairways need some grass growth but that will happen as it dries out and gets some sun.
