Great

I’ve been playing at this golf course for about four years now. It was good under the old management and it is great under the new management. A lot of work has been done on the greens and it’s just overall a great value!

Used to be a good price, but now.....

We used to play for $12.00 on golf now. Not sure why the price doubled? Play is still slow as heck and the course is in the same condition as before. I liked playing there but for the price there are better options. I'm not saying $240.00 is expensive, but is was a good deal at $12.00 . For a few dollars more you can play at Eagle Ridge, The Neuse or even River Ridge. For $20.oo you can play at Campbell which is a very nice course as well.

Affordable, Friendly But ROUGH

We took a chance on Wendell CC based on the reviews.. We came with low expectations... And I guess in a way the good news is that our expectations were met.

First the positives :
Super friendly staff - A+
Newish bermuda Greens are fast and roll true - A+
Pace was great for a Saturday, very little waiting - A-

Now the Bad:
Conditions are pretty bad... It's clear the club has suffered from long term funding issues... Very poor turf coverage and the horrific winter rain has clearly made things worse.

Poanna appears to be the primary grass... Again, without sufficient funding it's impossible lto keep Poanna at bay.

65% of Tee Boxes were mostly Poanna
35% of Tee boxes were mostly dirt

New Bermuda Champion greens roll true, are fairly fast (a good thing) but sadly just one year after the installation of the new bermuda Greens, poa is invading badly... A few of the greens already covered in the 40% range with poa... The majority had poa invasion in the 20% range. I hope the ownership can find ways to avoid a complete poa takeover of the very nice bermuda Greens.

The course is in good shape, considering all the rain this past winter. The greens are very good. The only thing is a slow pace of play by groups of foursomes and fivesomes.

Some fun holes. Challenging greens. Decent condition.

First tee time of the day, and played alone, so I finished in about 2.5 hours. At 10:00 the parking lot was packed and groups were lined up on the tee 1st tee.
The course was fun and the greens were rolling well. The course is hilly, narrow, and presents several blind shots. Accuracy is paramount, especially on the back.
Lots of rough spots on the sides of the fairways, but there hasn’t been much rain to help grass grow. Cart paths were terrible.
The price was a little higher than it should have been, in my opinion.

Course has deteriorated greatly

Fairways are awful, mostly dirt, mud, or cabbage grass in fairways as your lie. Sand traps are a joke. Greens are brutal. A lot of cuts and random marks in the greens that need repairs immediately. Was not told about a par 3 green being out of business, instead they made it in the fairway as if we should be fine with that. Been here a few times in ‘17, and ‘18, and I must say the course has fallen off a cliff. Never coming back again and I highly recommend not to play here. It isn’t worth your money when there are so many other quality courses in the Triangle area.

Fun course.

Find myself going back over and over. Good price, great course. Cheapest fee with champion Bermuda around. Greens have matured fast. Rolling great and true. Fairways have really come around in the last 3 years. Only negative on this course is length and cartpath. Minor, dont let this stop you from at least trying it out..
