Greens very nice for this time of year

Greens were in better shape than most of the courses in the area, especially with all the wet weather we had the past two months. Course was wet (cart path only) but dryer than most. I would go back.

Wil-Mar Golf Course

The golf course is probably very nice. We played in March and there was a cold snap, the grass was dorment. Greens were still in pretty good shape. I would like to return to the course when evertyhing is in bloom and the temperature was not 46 degrees.

Excellent Greens

The Bermuda greens at WilMar are exceptionally good. So glad they redid them last fall. They putt true and roll with just enough speed. Course was wet from recent rains but every course in the area is experiencing damp conditions. When we finally get temps above 60 F during the day, I expect WilMar to be back in the rotation. Fun layout....tho it looks short from the scorecard....the back 9 will test you. The staff is always friendly and efficient.

Good overall

Perfect weather and course was in good shape for this time of year. The greens were exceptional. A couple of things would be helpful. There is very little sand in the bunkers. There was a foursome ahead of us that was very, very slow and backing up the entire course. Love playing this course and will be back.

Great

Everything was great - pace of play, greens, course conditions. Quick game - no rush.
Only - bunkers needs more sand ( but I guess this is a problem at most courses). Bunkers are not that friendly.

Love WilMar!!

Sunday golf and the sun was shining so the course was super crowded but still a great day. Greens ware great. Given all the rain we have had the course was in very good shape. The staff is super. It was slow due to one foursome but they quit at the turn so not bad at all.

Nice day

It has been 25 years since I played here. Grew up playing this course so I was interested in what the course looked like. Loved the new greens. Still needed to grow in a bit since they were less than year old but they putted well for Bermuda in the winter. They have taken many trees down with more in the works to get sun on those greens. It will make a difference this Summer. The pace of play could have been better but we were able to get through the slowest group at the turn. Should have been a marahall moving them along. Just a nice casual course that was in good shape for March. Friendly staff except for the starter who yelled from the porch at the twosome I was playing with that they needed to check in before they played. Honestly I would not have known he was the stater if he hadn’t said somthing to them since he was sitting in the front porch instead of in the starters box. The practice facilities were better and more extensive than I remember. Overall a great nostalgic experience. The course was fun to play even if all the par threes except for the first and last(there are six in the course) were set up to roughly the same yardage. That may have been a fluke based on the conditions of the day. Hopefully I can make it back when all the grass is green in the summer.

A nice golf course

A nice place to play golf. Golf carts were nice, Greens were beautiful..... staff was pleasant and welcoming.
Fairways could have more grass. Hit off a lot of bare areas. Will play again there

JC from Northwest Raleigh

Phenomenal day of golf! From the time I checked in with Robby to the great work by the Starter Jack, this Course is totial Customer is #1. The greens are exceptional and the layout is a challenge. I am going to make this my Home Course. I travel from the Brier Creek area and this is a great choice for me! 22 mile trip is worth it with the quality of the Coursre.
Thanks to the Groundskeeper for a great job!
