Nice, but short

Course in pretty good condition for season, except for 3 greens that were in very bad condition and being repaired. 2 issues with course. 1. Course plays pretty short even from the Blues. At least 2 of the par 5s would be par 4s in Michigan courses. 2. Front 9 has an area where many holes come together. Feels like you are playing into a crowd.

Nice layout. Fun course to play

This course has been around a while. Conditions are OK. Some greens need work, but most are OK. Course is short with many doglegs, so best for short hitters like me. A big hitter would often leave driver in the bag, or maybe have a run at driving some par4 greens, but the course is usually jammed, so waiting for a green to clear would not work. Today, the back 9 was closed, so all play the Stockholder 9, normally reserved for members. This is a good value. Nothing I would be super critical of or over the top excited about.

The greens are in really bad shape, some had very little to no grass, hard to get a true putt. Course is in good shape, just the greens need a lot of work, not till next year.

Needs to close down for new greens

Taking money to putt those greens without a disclaimer can’t be legal or moral.

Greens are in terrible shape

I realize nature and other factors can be involved. But 27!holes, 9 were closed. The greens were under sever repair and not one true putt on any. Course needs to advise prior to going out. It affected the entire round. Would not recommend until this is fixed

Course under repair

Back nine is closed so you play front nine and stockholders. The greens are in terrible shape. Pace of play was bad because it was backed up and the stRter allowed singles to go out instead of putting them with a group. I will not play here again until construction is done and it has improved.

SMH

I have lived in wake county for over 30 years. RGA is on of my favorite courses because it convenient, layout and course conditions. This past weekend I was in shock because of the course condition. We played 18 but I believe only one green was in decent condition. Not sure what's going on but I hope they care of it quick. I'm not returning until they get it right.

As always it was great to see Robert. He always provide great customer service.

Course was in a really bad shape.

I’ve played at RGA several times and usually the course is ok. You tend to expect an average course base on what you pay. Today was pretty bad. Round was more expensive than what they average charge and the greens truly were in the worst shape imaginable. Some greens had so much sand that it felt like you where not in the green but in a bunker. Hopefully they try to fix this in the next couple of weeks. I suggest to skip RGA for a month or so to let the greens get in a better shape.

Traditional design, friendly people.

Pace of play was average with about 4 hours 10 minutes. Fairways in decent shape. Some of the greens and t-boxes need serious TLC.

Work

This course is great for some tune up work. The heatwave we had earlier this summer took a toll on some of the greens(which are usually in great shape). I hope that as it cools down a lil they come back strong.

These greens are booty

This is a fun course to play but right now, the greens are in terrible shape. Just know that going into it. Other than that, it’s a fun little course.

Nice course, but short

Nice course with some good holes, but way to short. I think 2 of the Par 5s were only 400 yards. I generally play the whites. But after 9 switched to the blues.

Greens in need of some work. But it is a pretty course with lots of doglegs and hills.

Terrible Greens

I played RGA two months ago and found the course to be in good shape. I returned yesterday to play and the greens were absolutely terrible. I do not know what happened over the last two months, but something needs to be done. The staff was great and accommodating.

Greens

Course is typically in decent shape for the price, but the greens are in bad shape right now. A couple on the back 9 are really bad. Pace of play was slow, but everywhere is right now.

Value No More

Last time I played RGA was about 2 years ago. Fast forward to last weekend and the only nice thing I can say about it is the staff was very friendly. Course is in terrible shape and greens are non existent. Heat has hurt the course and they need to take a week or two break and try to rehab this course. Greens were dead and full of crab grass and super slow/not true. Don’t spend your money here. Several other courses in the area that you will have a better time at. Fairways were okay but pace was super slow for such a short course. Took almost 5 hours
