Quality in spite of COVID

Golfed many times at Lochmere, and the conditions of the course were superb today...in spite of the COVID situation. Nice addition with the Bluetooth speakers on the carts...made for a relaxing round, in spite of the slow pace of the group in front of us. Fairways are grown in nicely, and greens are in superb condition. Well done Lochmere...keep up the good job.

A beautiful day

Every time I visit my son in Raleigh I play 2 courses, Lochmere was a terrific course. Great condition, good driving range and friendly staff. Really enjoyed my round. There was water on every hole so a real challenge keeping the ball straight..I look forward to playing this gem again

Nice Course

Have only played this course twice, but it is very well maintained and a pleasure to play. Lots of fairly short par 4s with some narrow fairways and quite a few bunkers around the greens. The course rewards accuracy over shot length. My only minor criticism would be that the par 4s all start to look similar after a while. Highly recommended.

Good round, decent conditions

near perfect golf weather and pace of play. Fairways were a bit soggy in some spots but it didn't interfere with play. The greens were quick for sure however they were in decent condition.

Great Course Great Value

This is only the 2nd course I have played around Cart, and I must say I fully enjoyed the 9 holes I was able to play and sorely disappointed I did not have time for the back 9!

I was initially greeted by the Proshop
guy whose initial begins with a J, and he was a super friendly guy and we had a brief chat in golf as it stands now during the pandemic season of life. After our chat, I proceeded to the range to get loosened up. Which, their practice facility is outstanding to say the least.

Next off,, after a few warm up putts, I proceed to the first hole. An average length from the blues, so I might suggest the black tees I’d you’d like a little more challenge.

The course was in outstanding condition, tee boxes, fairways, bunkers (yeah, I ended up in 2), and the undulating greens were firm and well maintained.

You can tell the grounds crew takes pride in this course just as much as the owners and managers.

Thanks for a great time while I was in town. I will definitely be back!!

All the best!

Great Course, but Busy

You wouldn't expect the scores to be as busy as it is a Wednesday, especially with Covid. But, it's in great condition. Only downside is they still don't open the grill until Thursday and the course was as busy as any weekend. Overall, got to come see the place.

No joy playing here

Tee boxes bumpy and chewed up. Fairways scruffy and barren. Cart paths are in disrepair. Have fun elsewhere.

super fun

Great course for the price. At 7 dollars over what we spent at knights play this course felt like a steal. No too difficult, the fairways are typically forgiving. Each cart came with a Bluetooth speaker. There was a range. I'll surely be returning.

Waste of time

If you plan on wanting to play a 5+ hour round for $50+ dollars then be my guest. This place is constantly overbooked and they don’t understand that it takes more than 6 minutes to play a hole. You are waiting at every tee box for the next hole and the conditions aren’t even that good. Always has some swampy areas and tee boxes aren’t in the best condition. If they didn’t overbook it, it could be worth playing but morning tee times are too expensive. Way over priced for what you get, it would be worth driving a little further for a better experience since this is the only course in Cary.
