Course management team is doing a great job in trying to improve some holes. Two par 3 are done and have worked out really well. They are working on a par 5 and 4 and hopefully will have same results.

Back nine really hurts rating

Front nine of the course is nice...course squeezes as much golf course as they can into a tight space. Back nine had maintenance of some sort on at least 4 holes but still had the gall to charge a full price. Recommend people stay away until course is whole.

Excessive for $39.00

I don’t know how people say this is a decent course. The fairways, roughs, tee boxes ,and cart paths are terrible. Don’t put anything in the cup holders or you’ll consistently drop them. They are rocky and destroyed. The greens were solid though.

The guy who runs the course it is extremely rude. Where the gentleman who sits at the first hole is a great and friendly guy.

$39.00 was extremely excessive for the course and it’s conditions. I played Lochmere in Cary the day prior for the same price and it’s far superior. Friendly staff, great fairways, roughs, tees, etc. ( I understand it’s Cary).

Three holes on the back 9 are under renovation. Some of them under renovation are par fours where staff placed a piece of sod halfway down the fairway for you to play them, essentially making them par 3s.

I get that it’s an old course and Wendell is up and coming. Hopefully the excessive money they are charging will be put to hiring more staff, making new cart paths, buying new machines, treating/ cutting the tee boxes, roughs, and fairways properly.

I won’t be back anytime soon, maybe next year. Hopefully some improvements are made.

$39.00 is Excessive

I’m not sure how people believe this is a decent course. I get it, it’s an old course but the fairways are lacking, the rough is scattered and a lot of it is either dirt/rocks or crab grass. I wouldn’t place anything in the carts cup holders for the cart path is so rocky and uneven. Three of the holes on the back 9 are under renovation. Where they placed a piece of sod to hit from halfway down these holes which are par 4s holes essentially making them par 3s. The greens are solid.

Wendell is up and coming so hopefully more revenue will come in. So they can get more staff to help consistently cut/ treat the fairways, roughs, and fix the cart path.

The gentleman who runs the course is extremely rude which is another reason I won’t be back anytime soon. The gentleman who sits at the first hole is a nice guy and one of the highlights of the country club.

$39.00 is excessive to play on this course. I played at Lochmere in Cary the day before for the same price and it is far superior to this country club. I hope they are using the excessive amount they are charging for some good.

Course

I’ve been playing WCC for several years. The improvements over the past 2 years have been impressive. In 2017/2018 the course was in bad shape but was told ‘just wait’.

Still a lot of work on 10, 11 and 18 but overall the course was in great shape.

Course Under Repair

Three of nine holes on the back nine were under repair. The course needed maintenance throughout, although there has been a lot of rain in the area. The fairways were grassy and greens unpredictable. We were not told up front that a large portion of the back nine is under repair. I did not enjoy this course. Bad shape for the price and area golf.

Not Finished Improving

16 of 18 holes are great and a lot of fun to play! All of the greens are nice and are miles better than they were a year or two ago. If you haven’t played Wendell CC in a while you’ll be delighted with the greens.

What they don’t warn you about is the turn....
They’ve cut down a lot of trees recently and that equipment has torn up the fairways on hole 10 and 11, so instead of warning you before you book they put a white board out by the tee box and turned a par 5 into a par 3. If I was warned about it before I booked or even before I teed of on #1 I wouldn’t be too upset about it.

Great Course for newer Golfers

I have played here a dozen or so times, and the staff has always been great! Course is rarely busy, perfect for newer golfers not wanting to be rushed. Front 9 is wide open with a couple of water hazards. Back 9 is still under construction. Great Course for the Money!!

I would definitely play again

This is an average course that gets the job done. Cant wait to play again when they get some things repaired.

Also I dont like paying more online than what I see everyone else paying by not paying online.
