Great Greens

The greens are immaculate! In fact, the fairways are also great. Rough is brutal. Definitely recommend this course.

Never play this course after it rains, it's a swamp and no fun, but when dry it is a great course to play.

Im officially just done here

The staff is awful and unprofessional EVERY single time. Im just tired of the miserable experience from people that clearly hate their jobs and just want to go home. Today we had to call in after 5 holes because a kid with a blower followed us every single shot, not turning the blower off including all tee shots and even rode right in front of our shots pretty much ruining the first half of the round. Then we had to call in 10 times to try and order food to grab at the turn, only to be snapped at when someone finally answered the phone. My last time up here the high school girl working in the pro shop pointlessly argued with me about how much my green fees cost to calculate a rain check, even after I showed her the charge on my credit card. Goodbye Lochmere. Your staff sucks, your range mats suck, and theres 30 other courses in the triangle

Great course but needs to spread out the tee times

Just finished a great rounds. Only critique is that they try to cram too many people on the course. We played a round in 4 hrs and 2 min but still felt pushed. They have tee times every 6 min and was asked by the marshal to pick up pace. In all my years golfing I think this was the quickest round I’ve ever played 18 holes in and were still being asked to pick it up. 6 min gap is not enough for tee times and constantly felt like people were wanting to hit into us. Course was in great condition but they need to space their tee times out better as we really had a hard time enjoying ourselves when we felt so much pressure to keep up pace of play when we were well ahead or a typical pace.

Very slow pace

This was my first time playing so understanding this could have just been because of the groups in front of us but it played very slow. Course was in good shape and greens putted well. It’s a good course just very busy and tight quarters on some holes has balls from other fairways flying in.
