Going Back Soon!

I have played golf for over 20 years and this used to be one of my favorites when I first started playing. I haven't played it in 15 years, but I enjoyed it! The whole course was in great shape, the greens were unbelievable smooth! If anyone complains about the greens, they need a putting lesson! LOL!

Thanks to the staff for there great efforts for giving the people a great course to play, for a great price!

Great shape

I have been playing this course on and off for more than 30 years. It is in the best shape I have ever seen. I would give it a 5 star, except that "Starter Dave" acts like you are bothering him when you check in and tee off on the first hole. This seems to be a constant, at least the last several times I have played here. Give it a try, right now, it is very nice. I believe they have a new grounds superintendent.

Nice course, great value

One of the best values in the Raleigh area. Not very long but challenges you on just about every approach shot. Course and greens are in great shape. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Could be 4 stars if they controlled the pace and lowered the price

Overall it’s a nice course, but it is overpriced and the pace is slow. I used to play this course any time of day, but now only at slower times because when it’s crowded pace is not controlled. $52 for a round is way too high for this course.

Great course but should be!

It is a great course very well-maintained great staff but it should be for the cost to play and I don’t say that to be negative. It’s just how it is. For those that find it difficult to meet ends it’s an expensive golf course

Course was in good condition

Course was in good condition and the staff were pretty friendly this time. The pace of play is always the drawback of this course. We had to wait 10-15 minutes in between each hole because the course was so backed up. At one par 5, a group was on the green, a group was waiting to lay up to the green, a group was on the tee box, and 2 groups waiting after them to see off. That’s crazy

Hello, jdhockeygod91. Thank you for reviewing the course, but we apologize for the delay of play during your round as this is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. We hope you still enjoyed the day with us and that we can welcome you back to Wil-Mar Golf Club again soon. #WilMarGC
