Sooooooo slowwwwwwww

I guess you can continue to charge top rates for sub par golf.
I know the weather was great and on a weekend there are a lot of golfers but you can’t have a starter who says off the first tee it will be slow.
Well I guess so with no ranger to move people along. Too many players wanting to play from back tees then take long times looking for there ball because they try to hit too far.
Can’t believe starter would let a foursome tee off with only two sets of clubs. Takes longer to play when you share clubs.
Just poor management and NO supervision on the course.
Hopefully better days are ahead.

Good value

Course was a little crowded on a Friday afternoon with the group in front of us appearing to show someone how to play. They seemed to be demonstrating swing mechanics and stance. That’s a range issue, folks.

The course was in really good shape except for two greens which had been the victims of some drainage and plumbing repairs. The clubhouse warned us, however, and awarded a two-putt maximum for those holes.

This course is always fun and definitely worth the money-$35, including cart, through GolfNow. Very accessible to I40.

Not worth it.

I’ve played better greens at 9 hole Par 3 courses in the area. Course was over-sold and packed. Definitely not worth the fees we paid.

Greens in bad need of repair

I was told at the start the holes 10 and 11 were 2 putt limit due to construction. You could have said that for every hole as the greens are in pretty bad shape.

A good day for golf!

The weather was perfect. We played 18 holes in 3 hours and 5 minutes. Some of the greens have some damage, from the summer and are filling in nicely, but they told us about them in the clubhouse. The staff is always great!

Look for another course in 2020

This course was in pretty good shape back a couple of months ago when I played, however it has gone completely downhill from Summer until now. Greens are horrendous as players don't fix divots and about half the greens have dry patches, sand, and other issues. So don't expect to work on your putting. Also, I know they have been extremely busy so expect to wait 5-10 minutes at each tee.
Don't pay full price for this course the rest of the year, players should be getting discounts for playing on these conditions. Hopefully they can get it in better shape for 2021 because it can be a nice course that is centrally located around the RDU area.

RGA Greens in Horrible Shape

Fairways were good, but the greens were horrible. Pock marked, thin spots, unrepaired ball marks everywhere. It made putting almost impossible.

Nice, but short

Course in pretty good condition for season, except for 3 greens that were in very bad condition and being repaired. 2 issues with course. 1. Course plays pretty short even from the Blues. At least 2 of the par 5s would be par 4s in Michigan courses. 2. Front 9 has an area where many holes come together. Feels like you are playing into a crowd.

Nice layout. Fun course to play

This course has been around a while. Conditions are OK. Some greens need work, but most are OK. Course is short with many doglegs, so best for short hitters like me. A big hitter would often leave driver in the bag, or maybe have a run at driving some par4 greens, but the course is usually jammed, so waiting for a green to clear would not work. Today, the back 9 was closed, so all play the Stockholder 9, normally reserved for members. This is a good value. Nothing I would be super critical of or over the top excited about.
