Great condition. Very slow
Front 9 was great. Cruised around in about 1hr 20 mins. Got to 10 and had a very very slow foursome on the tee and a two some in front of me. The very very slow foursome wouldn’t let anyone play through. Played the back 9 in 2 1/2 hrs. Course was in excellent condition and the greens rolled great. Only thing were the leaves everywhere it was tough to find your ball even in the fairway but that is expected this time of year. Will defiantly be back. Paid 18 bucks for 18 with a cart. Can’t beat that!
Terrible customer service
Played a round on Sunday at 10am. The course is in good shape and the greens are nice if a bit slow. Pace was fine especially for a Sunday morning. Unfortunately on the 16th hole the sprinklers came on the green while we were on it and got us wet as well as our carts and bags. Especially considering that it was smelly reclaimed water it was gross having that sprayed on you. I called up to the clubhouse to let them know and the man who answered the phone said he would call the superintendent. After 20 mins we sprint and grab our balls from the green only to find the same situation on the 17th. I call back and am told,"the super isn't answering his phone but I left him a voicemail. I don't know what to tell ya, they should go off soon." After another 10ish mins they did go off and we were able to hit our tee shots onto the green holding standing water(see attached picture). Completely ruined the round and killed what was a great day of golfing. After the round I went inside to explain the situation and employee who I had talked on the phone just stared at me and said he could give me a raincheck for the two holes after us and our gear getting sprayed with smelly reclaimed water. Very poor customer service especially when paying a premium price for a 10am Sunday tee time. They have lost my business, my foursome's, and anybody else who is asking me for course recommendations.
On the flip side Bogeys grill is fantastic and has the best chicken salad sandwich of any course around, cannot recommend Tommy's food and drinks more. They are great.
Great Course... no doubts
Great day. Greens are really good.. well done. Played with nice people. Fun day
It took me a minute to realize I had previously played this course, had a good time then and now. Bring all your long stick you will need them.
Staff rudeness was diassapointing.
I have played this course several times during the week and had a great time. This was the first time I played it on the weekend. They have a no alcohol policy unless it is purchased from them that I truly didn’t know about. I had a 4 pack from a different store and paid $18 for a six pack there. We were waiting to tee off and the gentleman starting the groups came over very rudely and asked me what was in my cooler. I told him beer. He got pretty belligerent and told me I couldn’t be on the course with beer that I didn’t purchase there. I told him that I was unaware of that and returned the store bought beer to my car before teeing off. He continued to Harry’s me about it even after that. He told me it was a state law. The law actually leaves the option for the course to ban outside alcohol purchases, but does not require it. I tried to let this go however and attempted to start my round. Tee times here seem to have zero significance on weekends. I was playing a twosome and he let a walk on foursome tee off in front of us. They started everyone at the first hole instead of staggering between the front and back nine. This added over an hour to me and my partners round because of the congestion. When we finished the ninth hole and drove back by the clubhouse the gentleman again asked what was in my cooler and continued to rudely accost myself and my friend. I asked him where he thinks I may have picked up beer while on the golf course and he just got more rude and belligerent. I finally drove away to the tenth tee box and tee’d off. I have played around 6 different courses around Raleigh and this is the only course with the beer rule. It wasn’t the fact of the rule, but rather the entirely rude way the gentleman accosted me about it repeatedly. I will not return to Wilmar because of the behavior of this employee going forward.
Albatross and hole in one
Had the time of my golf experience. Had a double eagle(albatross) on hole 7: par5 and an eagle on #8.
Scored 65. 5 under my age. Might not ever do this again but it is a superb feeling knowing I did.
Good value, condition spotty, staff friendly
It is unfortunate that they lost the greens. My observation is that other courses in the area did not suffer as badly. I have played here several times over recent years and overall contrition has been fair to good. Some tees are, well, awful. I did observe a good deal of work being done, such as tree removal, which is encouraging.
My experience here has been wonderful. The staff is friendly and cooperative. The layout is varied and interesting. The off course services are very good and the small bar provides a nice spot for a "cold one" after golf.
I look forward to playing under improved conditions later this year.
The greens are non existent, but this round was one of most enjoyable in a long time. The fairways are in great shape and freshly mowed. Just played to have fun, done in two and a half hours. Can't wait to play the new greens.
Not hitting to the greens became too much to take so I dropped after 9.
Vernon McCallum 12:00 Tee Time
I am a person who likes to think I pick up on things pretty quick, that is, before taking up golf about 6 years ago.
I gave up on the game and just started back playing recently. This weekend I got to visit Wilmar, my favorite course in NC and really enjoyed myself. I had a buddy from out of town that played with me that enjoyed the course also.
After 9 went into the new grill & bar “The Bogey”. The food was great!! I will definitely be Teeing up again this weekend and having lunch at The Bogey!!
Great workaround for damaged greens.
In many ways the temp greens were more enjoyable than the regular greens. Great job!
