Great Course, Beautiful Layout

Even though it was extremely hot, we enjoyed our 9-hole round today. The elevated tees on the front nine provide for spectacular views along the way. Pace of play was excellent and the course is in terrific shape. Cannot wait to play 18 next time.

First time playing here, I was pleasantly surprised to find a great course hidden in a little neighborhood with a rather sketchy parking lot. The course was in great shape and relatively dry (considering that we got a lot of rain the night before). The course is by far the hilliest course that I've played. Overall, great value for the price... can't wait to come back!

Disappointed with course condition

This is a usually a well kept, pretty golf course. I always look forward to playing here. Today, I was not impressed! The condition of this course was crappy! Time to open up the wallet and restore this course to its glory!! Then it might be worth the price.

Very Hilly....

First time playing the course. I personally did not like it. Overly hilly to the point where some holes are just silly. But having said that some were fun. Just too many like courses that have too many dog legs. But that is just my personal opinion because the folks I played with seemed to really like it.

Pace of play was way too slow. Too many singles sent out caused a lot of backup.

For me, just not a course. I like.

Not maintained very well

The fairways are non existent. They seem to just run right into the rough without a change in length in grass much. Greens are pretty beat up. Lots of dead grass throughout the course. Not a huge fan. But, with that being said, it is very cost friendly, and can be used as a course to just get out and get some practice reps in.

Great place to play

My tee off time was at 7:00 am and when I got there at 6:45 they told me I could go out on the course. I went out alone and had a great time, no one was I. Front of me or back of me so I took my time and had fun.

Replying to Cary Country Club - we tee’d off at 12:32, and didn’t finish our round until after 6:30. SIX HOURS for a round of golf in utterly unacceptable. When we spoke to the “most senior employee” working at the time (Andy) after our round, we were told that he could do nothing for us. Disappointing lack of course management, and even worse customer service.

Fantastic

I would highly recommend this course. Great staff working here and the course is 95% back to normal after the rains. Challenging with the rolling terrain and flag placement. I found no negatives during my visit/ round.

Awesome

Regardless of past reviews I can say this course was in great shape, staff was great and accommodating and I will come back again. The few bad spots still left over after all the rain were minimal. Considering the age of the property you cannot tell considering the date the staff puts into maintaining the course. Thank you for making my first visit a pleasurable experience.

Had a prepaid tee time, called to ask if the course was flooded due to the previous nights rain, was told by the woman in the pro shop that “it is the most obvious thing ever” that the course will be closed due to the rain. Very rude customer service for no apparent reason. I’ll spend my money somewhere else.
