Good walking course and the sausage dog is excellent. Although it is packed on Sunday but we enjoyed it very much. Sunset view was amazing.
Excellent course, however only at the discounted rates on golf now. Not worth the normal rates. Cart girls are all awesome girls. GT
This course is in a great condition. I really enjoyed playing at Watson's.
No value here
If you enjoy long rounds behind ignorant foursomes and putting on garbage greens then this is the place for you. I used to really like Watson's, couldn't care less about having no facilities, the course is in rough shape and not nearly worth the money they ask. Better options are out there.
Course was in decent shape. Awful place to play golf. Ina Friday afternoon the pace was so slow it took 47 minutes to get to the third tee. The foursome in front were partying and couldn't care less. We called the pro shop to ask for a solution and were told there was nothing he could do as he was all alone and no-one could Marshall. One employee on a Friday afternoon? The snack bar was non existent although there was a microwave available if you brought your own. Thought I was on candid camera. Brutal!
I haven't played this course in 8 years, but the memories came flooding back how much I enjoyed it. Course conditions were excellent. No complaints in any area.
Une belle surprise ce Watson's Glen
Watson's Glen a été une très belle expérience pour mon ami et moi. Nous sommes deux excellents golfeurs et nous aimons joués des terrains difficiles avec un bon challenge. Nous avons étés gâtés par la longueur du terrain et les excellentes conditions. Malgré le club house qui a l'allure d'un ''Shack house'', le terrain a été une magnifique surprise. De beaux trous, très différents a chaque trou, très bonne vitesse des verts. Je vous recommande Watson's Glen sans hésiter, le prix en vaut absolument l'expérience.
Played on a very windy day
The wind conditions of the day made the course extremely challenging compared to normal The course is in excellent shape and the greens were rolling true. Good value for the money
Nice challenging track
Tough around and on the green, but not overly difficult. Course was in very good condition and we enjoyed the hot summer afternoon round.
Good quality course with bare bones facilities. Will go back once a year.
Just Too Slow
We played on a Wednesday late afternoon at 3:10 thinking there should be no reason at all why we shouldn't cruise through the round at a regular pace. Wrong... We waited on every hole- every shot! We looked at our watches after we hit our approach shot to the 16th green and noted it was approaching 5hrs. Then we looked at the tee box on 17 and saw 2 groups waiting to tee off. At this point we said forget it and heading for the parking lot. Haven't played Watsons in a few years and after this, it'll be a few years more. Wednesday afternoon- just too slow!
Not as easy as you think
Played with a couple of members and really enjoyed it. Course was in great shape but the greens we're a bit slower then usual apparently. Pace of play was a bit slow due to a twosome in front of us who were all over the place. For a 12 handicap I benefit a lot from a couple errant tee shots which allowed me to still save par easily. The greens are a lot harder to read then you would expect. A lot of the lines you would expect on certain putts don't even come close to what you actually saw, so be aware. I'd definitely recommend this course as I think it's a but underpriced considering the condition it's in.
Best course in Durham
Great fairways Great layout Great greens Great place
Overall a great course, the amount of rain that we have gotten seems to have affected a few sand traps but they are doing everything possible to remedy that. It was disappointing to have such a long round behind some very, very slow players.
Very good outing
An excellent day at Watson's Glen, weather, course conditions and pace of play. Would do it a lot more often if it was priced more reasonable. Especially for seniors on weekdays and weekends.
Sandy First Round
This was my 1st time at WG and 1st round of the year. Since it was May, the greens were not fully recovered from the start of the year aerating session. The layout was great, with a few challenging holes & great views. I was stuck in the sand for the majority of the day, but luckily it was good quality & easy to maneuver. My playing partner wasn't too happy when there wasn't anyone manning the halfway house at the turn.....apparently not getting a tuna sandwich after 9 holes ruins the remainder of his round. I would recommend this course in the off-season, but would probably not pay the premium in peak season.
For the first round of the year i was happy with the course. It was in great shape and the pace of play was perfect.
I am a regular to this course and the fact of the matter is that this course is very well maintained. During the summer the course is beautiful from tee to green. Winter must have reeked havoc on the greens because there was more sand then green on the greens. I'll assume its just because it's early in the season, even though I can't remember a season that the greens were this rough. As for the staff, I have never been somewhere before where the staff makes you feel like they could care less that you have chosen to play their course. From the lack of a club house (1 maybe 2 school portables put together) even though they charge around $90 to play, to someone who worked there calling me stupid for taking a different cart because the cart I was assigned was full of garbage! Very unfortunate! If you're looking for a beautiful course in the summer time, maybe try your luck here, just beware of the rudeness of the staff in the "clubhouse"
a great walk
the fairways and greens are in superb condition. I just love this course and recommend this course to everyone, no matter the skill level.
