They need to suspend play until the ground has tightened / dried. It was a swamp. Nearly fell down on a couple of swings in the tee box. Greens and bunkers were in great shape, just needed hip waders to get there. Good course and in good shape mid summer. But far too wet to be very enjoyable right now.
Enjoyable day on very wet course.
Course was extremely wet/soggy with some fairways being so wet it was difficult to get to your ball. Greens are in fantastic shape! For some reason they removed the 150 yard markers from the middle of the fairways which I really do not. So PLEASE put them back.
Pace of play too slow
They started late due to frost, but overbooked At 11am there were 8 people on the 1st fairway and another 10 lining up to play.
Highly recommend not going to Lochmere. I live right near it, so by nature it’s an “easy” option and I’ve played here probably 30+ times. But, it turns out poorly every single time. Course is always wet. They allow single cart riders, so there are never any carts. I’ve waited 45 minutes passed my tee time just for a cart. They book 8 minute tee times so you wait on every single shot. Absolutely zero management to help with any of these issues. This latest experience my tee time was pushed back an hour and fifteen minutes due to frost earlier in the day. Every other course I play gets rid of their 7:30 tee times this time of year for that reason. Not Loch...they simply want all the money they can get regardless of your experience.
Sad really, because the course is decent and has a nice layout. Won’t be playing again until something changes here.
Winter Rains take toll on Course
The greens are in great shape. The course was darn near under water everywhere, tee boxes, fairways, cart paths were flooded. Tough course to play during NC winters after some rain. I'm sure it shows much better in the summer. I would not want to play the course again till June.
Nice greens, but that is about it.
I will highlight the one bright spot of this course, and that is the greens. If this were a par 3 course it would be awesome. The rest of the course is in horrible shape. It is like playing in a swamp. I took a drop for casual water at least 15 times. Every time I book a tee time here I think it will be a different story, and every time I vow to never play here again. I think yesterday will be my last.
Greens were in good condition
The Greens were in great shape with the big usage. Carts had to stay on the paths due to heavy rain last week. A bit muddy, bring a towel.
Pace of play a problem
The past 3 times I have played here I have had 5+ hour rounds. This time the course was wet and cartpath only, but we still didnt tee off until 20 minutes after our tee time and played over 5 hours. We were still paying the full rate basically which was honestly unacceptable.
It is a shame because I like the layout of the course and there arent too many public options in the area. The course drains pretty poorly and will stay wet days after rain. Greens and fairways minus the water were still in pretty decent shape.
I think I am going to pass on playing here for a while because I just cant get over their tee time management. They need to spread these tee times out and stop being greedy with slamming the tee sheet
Very Disappointing Round if Golf
We had 3 groups waiting ahead of us at our scheduled tee time. The course was slushy with very poor drainage after heavy rains a couple of days ago. It was cart path only, and very slow groups ahead of us. The ranger attributed it to the course conditions, so, nothing could be done about it. There was nobody at bagdrop and no one to let first time guests know where to go. The front nine took 3 hours. So, our entire foursome left after 10. We were very disappointed.
Great course, horrible pace
Beautiful course, great layout and greens. A little wet even though it has not rained in a while. Pace of play was terrible, didn’t even finish 18 as I didn’t want to spend 5+ hours playing. Finished 12 holes in 3.5 hours.
The greens were rolling nice. The bunkers were well maintained. The fairways however were very soggy in places even though it hadn’t rained lately. Pro shop has some great deals on clubs and clothing. I will let players know Vokey wedges on sale for sure.
We haven’t had major rain in weeks but this course is always muddy. Need to remove the leaves as well. Hard to find balls even in fairway. Greens were very nice. Sand in good shape
Course tends to be overbooked most days. However pace was not too bad. Course was in good condition. Will play again.
Wet wet wet
Love this course but its always so wet and usually cart path only. Most likely the last time I play here as other local courses seem to fit my needs better.
Rained all morning until we teed off, no one in front of us or behind us, a little soggy because of weather but it was allot of fun. Greens were nice.
