A TERRIBLE DAY AT THE COURSE!

So, I show up early, check in with the very friendly staff. Go to the convenient driving range. Take advantage of the nearby chipping green. I swing back around to the putting green to to check it out. The starter is courteous and professional and send us off a few minutes early. From there it was all downhill. Not because of the course which was terrific but because my son and his cheating partner beat me and my partner. If they were going to go low they should have told us :) Seriously, love WilMar. Have not played there in a couple of months but it is great. I highly recommend it. The grill was a tad underperforming.

Decent

Greens were blazing fast. Tee boxes were nice and the fairways had very few areas that didn't have grass. Carts were quiet and nice and the cart path was in good shape. Will go back in the summer when there are fewer leaves and maybe the greens will soften up. Staff was nice. Driving range was well equipped with chipping and putting but hitting area was torn up when I was there. Very nice course if you are local to the area. IMHO not really worth a long drive if you are not near Knightdale.

Great Condition Overall

This is the best condition I've seen WilMar this year....
Greens rolled great, very defined fairway/rough lines.
Sand traps were consistent. They have new scorecards (5 sets of tees) with black (back) tees playing at 6006 yds......don't let that fool you, the back nine can get tight depending on the wind. WilMar has spent some money improving the course conditions the past 2 years and it is showing......great work Marty and Fran!!!!!!

Nice course, atrocious pace

First time playing here, it’s a nice course and a solid value, but my god I’ve never had a worse pace of play experience.

Literally 3-4 groups on one hole at a time, 10+ minute waits. Can’t recommend putting yourself through that.

Hello, u200659007. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, 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 are glad to see you rated the course conditions and layout to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Wil-Mar Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

5 hour round

Very slippery greens plus a few unreasonable pin placements. Pin placements should not be set up as if it were a 'tough day' tournament for a members tournament. This is a public golf course being played on a weekend by many inexperienced golfers.

We haven't played here for two or three years. We will go back, but not on a weekend.

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.

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.
