Slow greens

slow greens compared to other courses in the area but I guess that is to be expected in the winter and being bent grass. Like most courses right now very soggy conditions. But still one of the best tracks around.

A great, fun challenge

Great golf course. A little bit of target golf, a little links style, and for being in downtown Raleigh, amazing. Might be my favorite course in the Triangle.

Cold weather
Used cart

Tough track in good condition

This is a fun and challenging course. Played in December when course was a bit wet and weather was in the 50's which I think made it play quite a bit more difficult. Its long but offers a number of tees for golfers of all levels. Par 5s are really only reachable for really long hitters. Greens are very fast and have tons of shape. Was in a foursome and multiple times today saw balls roll off false fronts/roll 30 yards from a pin high shot after rolling down a tier etc.

This is a course you will really benefit from playing a few times/with someone that knows it.

Anyway- fun track, carts are very nice and give yardage to front/middle/back of green. Will def. go back.

Always good .pace of play sometimes an issue

One of my favorite courses
I wish people would be courteous with pace of play. Play Ready golf and putt when you are ready if someone is struggling around the green. Don’t have to have all 4 members of your foursome look for someone’s ball. Drop a ball after a few minutes. On cart path only- bring a few clubs. Saw a few folks running back to their cart to get the club right. Waste of time.
Most of us are not on the Tour so let’s move it along!

Great layout

Wonderful course with good variety of holes. Conditions were outstanding but the greens were extremely fast and unfair for most amateurs .
Pro hints on the in cart GPS were very helpful.

Don’t understand why par 3 tee boxes were using mats????

Due to COVID clubhouse was not accessible.

Great Pace of Play

Anytime you get around Poole in under 4 hours is a treat....3 hr 45 min today. Greens are really good right now....got a little speed to them. Rest of course in very good condition. Just play from the proper tees for your skill level and you'll enjoy the course.
