Rainy

start off by saying I have been playing this course for 3 years and always enjoy. Yes, read the reviews and general consensus.... it’s a tough course! Very challenging but will keep you coming back! Fun layout and Getting to know the layout will help but knowing the layout will not completely eliminate the 200 yard 2nd shots on the par 4’s. Course condition was in good shape, I have seen it better. The foursome in front of us was slow! Started raining on the back 9 and they played even slower. Course is difficult, please pick up at double par (or less) and don’t play several balls when another foursome is on your heels. Always a pleasure to play here! I’ll be back

Nice, challenging course ruined by slow play

Nice course layout, overall was in excellent condition except for tee boxes, which were fair. But experience ruined by the pace of play. I had a 2:12 tee time on a Saturday, and it took me 5 hrs 20 min to play 18 holes in a cart playing as a twosome. There were multiple groups ahead of us (including one group of 6) spraying the ball everywhere, and then the whole group would drive to each person's ball to hit. Some of this is not the course's fault, but they can enforce a max of 4 players per time and have the rangers enforce pace of play. By the end of the round there was literally a line of three groups waiting to tee off behind the slow players, and no ranger in sight. Would recommend the course, but not on a weekend.

Fun course

Course was in great shape. Pace of play was very good. Starter even let us out 15-20 min before tee time. I’ve been playing this course for a couple years and it’s hard to find much to complain about. Always in good shape. Course is a difficult one, bring your A game.

Great layout

Every hole presents a new challenge. Greens are perfect. Course is very wet from all the rain which makes for a lot of walking up and down hills right now. Hard to beat for the price!

As expected in January

It’s end of January and was 45 degrees. I don’t expect courses to be lush and green. I like to go out and work on my game and this was sufficient. Played with a buddy and we played in 3 hours. We had the course to ourselves until hole 15 when we played through a foursome and then finished the last few holes without seeing a single golfer. $22 for 18 holes with a cart in three hours on a wet cart path only day in January and 45 degrees....not too much to complain about. The greens were smooth and putted true so would I come back and play again, yeah probably in the next two weeks. Its one of the best values/bang for the buck in the area.

Good to get out on a cold day

I used to be a Ranger at the preserve many years ago. The course doesn’t suit my eyes very well, but there are several holes that I love#2, 7, 8, 13, 15, and 18. I appreciate how well it looks in the winter. Brushes have been cleared. The greens roll smoothly and very fast. Although sloppy wet from the rain, the ball sat up nicely in the fairway. Since they were hardly anyone out there, I played 18 holes in two hours and 40 minutes.

Always a challenge

One of the more difficult courses in the Triangle area of NC due to the terrain and greens, it is fun to play. The course offers challenging holes across all pars. Highly recommended, but bring plenty of balls and a sense of humor.

THE Challenge among Challenges

Bring your "A" game, this layout is complex requiring every shot from every club to be "spot on". The greens are lightning quick but true. Several greens with false front dictate hitting high and long. Will return here after I tune up at easier layouts.

The preserve course was in excellent shape especially for this time of year. Fairways were great and the greens were as fast as any around. Bunkers were a little wet from the rain the night before but were ok. All in all excellent.
