Pace of play was great because no one was out there. The course is in pretty bad shape. Greens are not punched, but they are also not covered with grass, so you'll definitely find patches that make it extremely difficult to putt through. Several tee boxes were pretty much bare. The fairways were okay, but off the fairway you'll certainly find hardened dirt with clumps of grass. Don't even ask about the bunkers. Suffice it to say, you don't want your ball in them. But, hey, when you pay only $25 for green fee plus cart, it's kind of what you'd expect...

Everyone under the new Management and ownership at Falls Village Golf Club are very aware of the challenges that have been created over the last few years on the golf course.

We are currently in conversation with agronomy experts within our new company who are formulating a long-term plan, which will potentially include rebuilding the greens, bunkers, and other areas at the club.

Falls Village is a great local course for players who have the proper expectations. Of course the conditions are not great, (btw Hasentree has dead greens), but for $25-$45, she’s a great local value. The staff is friendly, the bar manager is top notch, and the members seem to really enjoy themselves.

Again, a fun spot to play, but if you are a golf snob, go elsewhere and pay accordingly.

I've played this course a few times now and this was the absolute worst I have ever seen it. The greens are in terrible shape with bare spots all over them. There wasn't a single putt that wasn't affected by some sort of imperfection in the green. Fairways were patchy and not well kept and I literally teed off from dirt on one par 3 as there was no grass to be seen on the tee box. Thankfully I didin't have to play out of the "bunkers" that were really just pits of clay with rocks in them. Sounds like the weather has just slammed this course but I would still give it a couple months for it to recover before coming back. Definitely not worth the price as it is right now and not even sure if I would waste $20 on this course before choosing another one.

I’ve played this course many times over the years and every time I go go back it seems to be in worst shape than the previous time. The tee boxes in most cases were bare, the fairways had bear spots all over and the sand traps have been abandoned with weeds and mud.

The green fees are too high for what’s being offered, I definitely will stay away for the rest of the year.

Falls Village continues to be the trash course of The Raleigh/Durham area. The greens are a disaster, many have more dead grass than live, although it does look like they’re making an effort to fix them now. The fairways are in decent shape but you can see that they are not being watered and are dying off in areas. The tee boxes are also dying off, many are more dead than alive. The bunkers are just dirt, and some are filled with mud and/or standing water. It’s cheap though, and the layout could be really fun if the could find some money to invest in fixing it up.

Course is in horrible condition. Bunkers are nothing but packed down dirt, weeds everywhere, sparse grass in fairways, tees are overgrown and badly groomed and the greens were terrible. The greens were slow, badly maintained and thin in many places. Maintenance crew was working on some holes and never bothered to yield to players or stop while we waited to hit shots. Service was terrible in the pro shop and at the bar. Avoid this place and save your money.

Love the course layout, but man o man the Greens are in rough shape. They were super soft, super slow, slightly overgrown and needing some work in some places. Most sand traps aren't traps anymore. They're little ecosystems with standing water for tadpoles and such. Fairways/rough were in decent shape, but around the greens need some TLC.

As others have stated, this course is falling into disrepair and should be avoided. Tee boxes are basically dirt, the fairway grass is sparse, and the greens are splotchy and bumpy with many bare spots. Bunkers are terrible and the cart paths are broken cement. On the plus side (and there are not many) the guy in the proshop was friendly and they did have cold water in the coolers on the course. <br/> The layout is good and it's a shame they cannot get the course playable.

The course is coming along nicely. Fairways and approach to Green's are great. Greens are coming in fairly well, a little slow but I think that was b/c they had not been cut. Probably trying to let them grow in good before summer heat hits. Bunkers still need work but good course for the value.

This used to be a nice course......unfortunately it's not anymore. Fairways are patchy with grass, greens are dead around the edges, sand traps are mud traps half of which are filled with water....it hasn't rained in 6 days! The course layout is nice, and used to be a great course to play. I was very disappointed in the conditions. The clubhouse has always been not that impressive and the snack bar lacks but it used to be you had a great course to play. I'm not sure if it's new ownership in place, but whoever is in charge is running this place into the dirt....literally. Way overpriced for what you get. Go to their sister course Chapel Ridge if you want a quality golfing experience where you won't be disappointed.

The layout has potential (blind tee shots notwithstanding) but the extremely poor conditions of the course made it almost unplayable. The rough was more forgiving than the fairway... at least there's some grass! And the greens were just awful. Patchy, bumpy, and completely impossible to do more than just get it close on your lags. Not a single putt rolled true. $22 is the absolutely max I would pay for this course and that might be overpaying a little... For another $10, you can play a dozen courses in the area that are 5x the quality. Skip this one.

Greg, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, however, we are truly sorry to hear your recent experience with us did not meet our usual expectations. Your feedback has been shared with our staff as we are on a path towards course improvements. Everyone under the new Management and ownership at Falls Village Golf Club are very aware of the challenges that have been created over the last few years on the golf course. Our greens have bounced back nicely, although we have 5 greens in particular that have continued to show signs of stress and our fairways and rough are starting to grow in with the warmer weather.

We are currently in conversation with agronomy experts within our new company who are formulating a long-term plan which will potentially include rebuilding the greens, bunkers, and other areas at the club. Please be patient while we support our superintendent in giving him and his crew the resources to keep the golf course enjoyable and playable. If you have any further comments or questions, please contact John Montgomery, PGA Head Golf Professional at Falls Village at jmontgomery@fallsvillagegolfclub.com.
