This is a tough layout that challenged us and provided beautiful scenery on every hole. It is in great condition! The greens are firm and fast like they should be. I had a chicken salad sandwich at the turn that was almost a good as the course. There was one bunker I remember being in rough shape, but it likely needs to be rebuilt and I managed to avoid it. The only other negative on our day was that some schmuck ahead of us was eating sunflower seeds and spitting the shells on the greens... it’s hard to fix stupid! That didn’t distract us from having a great round on a great course for a great deal!
Your feedback is important to us, David1762502. Thank you for sharing your 5-star experience! We look forward to seeing you again at the course soon and thanks for choosing The Preserve at Jordan Lake Golf Club. #PreserveGC
The Preserve is an enjoyable course. They always seem to have it in pretty good shape, and it's definitely a challenging layout. It's a bit of a drive from Raleigh, but the rate is great for what you get. That said, there are a few things they could work on, or I wish were better.
Carts: They are gas carts (which I don't like anyway), and several times I've played here, I get a cart that takes several seconds to start after pushing the gas. It gets annoying, especially when going uphill and the cart tries to roll backwards before it finally kicks in.
Bunkers: The sand is very course - almost gravely - and pretty thin in a lot of spots.
Water coolers: It was 90-95 degrees guys. Would it hurt to put ice in the coolers? Water was basically room temp.
Layout. Overall, it's a fun layout, but there are a few holes that completely take driver out of your hand because of a fairway-crossing hazard. I don't mind that once or twice, but there are about 4 holes where you're forced to hit a fairway wood. It's basically target golf in a lot of ways. It's not the worst because they are all either short par 4's or 5''s, so you're not left with long iron or fairway wood approaches because of it.
Otherwise, it's a great course with one of the better practice areas in Raleigh (big putting green, good range, and bunker/chipping green), the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the clubhouse is very nice.
This course is a really good test. Lots of elevation, penalty areas, lovely surroundings. The greens rolled OK, the rest of the course was needy. If the course was in the condition I am sure it once was , it would be high on the rating charts. Would love another go at it.

Great layout but Conditions are Lacking
I've played The Preserve a lot over the last 3 years and this is by far the worst shape the course has ever been. I understand the course is still growing in from the winter and has been hit with a lot of rain already this year. Tee boxes & fairways are in rough shape. Multiple tee boxes barely have grass on them and there are multiple areas of the fairways are barren. Typically the greens are always in great shape but this is the first time I've seen weeds on the greens. This course has all the potential to be one of the best courses in the area because of the layout but the course condition will always keep it from getting there
Storms predicted all day. Couldn’t cancel since course was open. Pro Shop said we’d have no problem getting in our 9 holes. Barely finished 1st hole and it started pouring. Couldn’t continue play and out our greens fee. Course should have heeded weather warnings of the day.

Beautiful Friday Afternoon
The fairways were dormant as to be expected but consistent and easy to hit off of, the sand traps were in great shape and the greens were impeccable, very consistent and rolled true. Will be out there again as soon as the rain stops.......guys in the clubhouse were very friendly also.

This was a very fun course to play. Shot placement is key, with lots of entertaining shots, elevation changes and challenging holes. Overall in great condition for the winter months. Some obvious wet areas, but they were easily avoidable, and the greens were in wonderful condition. Will be back weather permitting.

The Preserve is usually a great course overall. Only flaw experienced is possible drainage issues, several muddy and soggy areas.

Really nice course for all levels. Beginners may want to pay more attention than normal to where they place shots. Is not boring for experienced players. Great layout, Great variations. Definetly will be back here again. Staff was also great, facility is great. Didn't try the food but noticed many people eating there so I am guessing it is great as well.

It was cart path only but we finished I just a bit over 4 hours... even after letting a double and single play through . Winter conditions in dormant fairways but we rolled ball for clean lie. Greens in awesome shape. I will definitely be back in future!
Thanks for the great feedback and 5-star review! We're glad you were still able to enjoy the day with us despite the cart-path conditions, and we appreciate your comments on our greens. Come back to The Preserve at Jordan Lake Golf Club again soon! #ThePreserveGC
I frickin, frackin hate/love this course.
This is consistently the most challenging course we play. The distance combined with the slope make every hole a hill to climb. A gem for sure.
