Slow Pace of Play, Beautiful Conditions

The staff was quite friendly and attentive. The driving range and practice facilities were quite nice.
The course was in good condition. The bunkers were all in excellent shape. We found the greens in good condition and putts rolled smoothly. Most found the speed was slow.
The only drawback was the pace of play. Well over 4+35 to play 18 holes and we waited on a number of holes for the groups in front of us.

Great, quick round but very wet course.

Had a great time and round of golf at Lochmere today. Tee area and fairways were very wet (cart path only) but greens are in fantastic condition. Pace of play was great also!

Pace of play not acceptable

This course gets lots of play, so they need a ranger badly to keep the rounds started in timely manner and pace consistent.

Nice Course but...

I enjoy my time at the course but the problem I tend to run into is it’s always really marshy through the course. I am not sure if that’s because of bad drainage or what the issue is but it never fails that the grounds are wet which causes a rough time to play. That’s the main issue I find.

Mixed Bag

Like the title says, there's good and bad on this track. The good: Plenty of water in the layout and greens are in really good shape. The staff is friendly. The bad: This course just doesn't drain well for whatever reason and because of it parts of it get damaged by the mud and water and never get a chance to recover. Tee boxes are a mess. Overall it's a decent layout with a more challenging back 9 but there's better values in the area although nothing else in or around Cary. I wouldn't avoid it but probably won't be back this year. Again, it's not the course's fault that any time it rains it becomes a swampy mess and stays that way for days after.

Swampmere

They don’t call it swampmere golf course for nothing. While the layout of the course is one of the best in the Raleigh area, it has an incredible problem with draining. I don’t think I have ever seen this course dry. Then you add on the golfers that dig 4 inch deep divots into the moist soil and the fairways turn into a mess. The people there are fantastic and some of the friendliest. If they could solve their drainage issue I think this would be one of the best courses to play in the area. Greens are some of the best I’ve seen recently.

Great Course

Always a great course to play. Whether the cart rule is 90 degrees or cart path only, regardless, it’s always time and money well spent when playing!
