Lochmere

Good course. Very narrow. Greens were firm as they appeared to have been sanded recently. Putts rolled well. Course is fairly short and a lot of the holes were similar in design and yardage. Overall its a nice simple course good for any level of player.

Cart Path Only deserves a discount.

Loved the new greens. Very challenging, because of the subtle breaks. Course played long because of the rain. But, most fairways were quite playable. Only a few casual water drops necessary.
I understand the need for cart path only to protect the course. But, If you are going to do that, then a discount should be applied to those who take a cart. It's actually
more work to take 3 clubs out to your ball, with towel and GPS.and return to the cart.

If it sprinkles get ready to walk. Cartpath only for sure if any rain. Course needs a rebuild with fill dirt added to raise it a couple of feet.

Nice Course, Poor Drainage

Have played Lochmere several times and like the course layout. Not too long and some fun holes. Big issue with the course is it does not drain well. You pretty much need several weeks of dry weather before a round to avoid puddles and mud.

Don’t go if it has rained

This course has potential but if it rained in the few days before your tee time it’s going to be muddy and not a great time. Staff is friendly and they have just about all you need minus the driving range which is closed if it’s wet.

Sloppy Mess

After receiving 3” of rain prior to playing the course, especially the fairways were like a swampland. Play should have been suspended so the course isn’t ruined for the season. Standing water all over, every fairway.

Cart Path Only

Green are really nice and staff (especially Starter) were friendly. Just hate that this course stays so wet and they have to bring out the “Cart Path Only” sign.

Love this place

Staff is incredibly nice and accommodating. Course is challenging and fun enough for all skill levels of golfers. For the weather that we have had in the last couple of months, course was in much better shape that I have seen most courses in the Triangle.
