Course is typically in decent shape for the price, but the greens are in bad shape right now. A couple on the back 9 are really bad. Pace of play was slow, but everywhere is right now.
Value No More
Last time I played RGA was about 2 years ago. Fast forward to last weekend and the only nice thing I can say about it is the staff was very friendly. Course is in terrible shape and greens are non existent. Heat has hurt the course and they need to take a week or two break and try to rehab this course. Greens were dead and full of crab grass and super slow/not true. Don’t spend your money here. Several other courses in the area that you will have a better time at. Fairways were okay but pace was super slow for such a short course. Took almost 5 hours
Value for the money
It’s a ice track, with a few long Par 4’s and short Par 5’s. The weather here has been scorching, with occasional thunderstorms, and several greens are just dead. Some are merely hanging on. Otherwise the course is in decent shape. Starter was good, made pairs when he could. Play move along. It’s close to downtown Raleigh where I live. Overall pretty good. Will come back.
Not terrible for the price
Three greens in a row on the start of the back 9 had little or no grass on them. The price of the round made this a little more acceptable but still wouldn’t run back to play here again. A lot of the tee boxes were in rough shape and about half them were tough to get a tee in the ground.
Way overpriced considering the conditions!
Course layout was challenging. Tee times packed but pace of play was a little above average. Course was in horrible shape! Several greens had large patches with no grass, putts were bumpy brown patches. Only distinction between fairway and rough is the rough is taller. Same type of grass in fairway as tough. Erosion patches in fairways. Hit a drive in the fairway and have to find a patch of grass to sit the ball on. I purchased at Hot Deal for $35 and didn’t feel it was even worth that. I play about twice a week and have played other courses in FAR better shape than this one for about $10 more than the Hot Deal. Would not recommend if you’re even a half serious golfer. Serious golfer, definitely not.
Nice and simple. Classic.
Great course quiet carts. Very open. Hard to lose a ball out of bounds. You can lose it in the rough. The ball just disappears. I found like 6 balls that were in play but likely lost drop mad players. This is possibly a sign that it not mowed low enough. Cart path is completely toasted. Where no cart path is left, there are rocks ranging in size from gravel to golf ball sized to fill in holes. Staff is super nice. Thought they were being excessively nice last time but realize after three trips here that they really are just that nice. Friendliest staff in Wake County IMHO. Many other courses act like they are doing you a favor by allowing you to play there. To some degree that's true but I shouldn't pick up on it. No driving range here so if you don't play often your first whack to get the dust off will be on hole 1. If this place had a driving range I would go all the time. Excellent and spacious putting and chipping green. There is space to go back to about 100 yards and practice into the green but I assume that is restricted because you will leave giant ball marks and ruin the chipping experience for others. Tryon is heavy traffic coming off 18 so you can die crossing the street on a workday at 530. I drove all the way back to 13 to get across safely. No easy way to get back there from 18 other than meandering very far from where you really want to go. Owner should pave a shorter way back to the club house off 18 that goes under Tryon safely.
Great course , keeps up interest levels
Great course , wide fairways with sufficient obstacles and dog legs built into the mix. Nice roll on the greens. Will visit again !
Broke 80s , enjoyed thoroughly
Kind of short, alright conditions/layout. Very laid back and easy going and worth the price to play.
Repair your divots!
Relatively short course from the blues and very forgiving of those wayward tee shots. Fairways and tee boxes in relatively good condition but the greens were divot ridden, really don’t understand why people can’t repair their divots?!
Good fun course to play with the boys, will be playing again
This course is generally busy, I expect to be patient. But Sunday morning had perfect weather and I was bookended with players moving at the same speed.
I shot my best round!
