Lochmere 2/3/19

Super friendly staff. The course conditions were a little rough due to water and lots of play. Slower foursome walking in front of us. This course should be great by mid spring. Would def play here again.

What you expect from a $27 round

Moderate length and tight fairways make this a shot-maker's course. There are scoring opportunities on most holes if you keep it in the short grass. Water hazards on almost every hole but they don't come into play as much as you might expect.

Only critique is the lack of drainage on the course. There was standing water on nearly every fairway. Granted, it's been the wettest winter of record but I haven't experienced an issue like this at other courses in the area. A member of my group said he has played the course half a dozen times throughout the year and the fairways are always wet.

Overall: It's a good under $30 course but I probably won't be back until mid-summer after a prolonged dry spell.

Wet Golf

Course was just to wet to play. No fault of the golf course. Needs to dry out for about a week...

crowded course

Lochmere was mediocre, and I may not go back very often.

1.The course is crowded with foursomes going off every ten minutes. We took 4 1/2 hours to play.

2.The fairways and tee boxes are poor with spotty grass.

3.The layout is somewhat flat and boring. Houses around the course are on slopes, but the course is mostly very flat.

4.Had to hit off mats on the driving range.

A. The sand traps were in good shape.

B. the greens were good. moderate speed and slope.

C. The rough was penal but fair.

Lochmere Round

The good...Great staff, greens and fairways!

The bad... Tall rough (lost a lot of balls), winter shadows and leaves (lost a lot of balls).

Recommendation...Keep it in the fairway and you will have an enjoyable round.

First time at Lochmere

Had enjoyable round in perfect weather. Nice proshop & driving range. Practice putting area is a bit tight, depending on number of people. Started on-time. Was positioned behind a group of walkers, so had a slow round. Course had a lot of wet areas do to Hurricane Michael, but was playable though it was cart path only. Had a good time, would play it again, but not on weekend.

Nice Course

I’ve always heard that Lochmere is very wet. Considering the recent hurricane, the course was nice and dry. Fairways were in nice shape. Greens were real nice. I’ll be playing here again soon!!

Well laid out course, but constant slow play issue.

I enjoy the course, good condition, plays fair, but had to wait constantly due to slow play. Catch a weekday and you may enjoy it with a better place.

This course is worth playing

My friend and I took a few days to play in North Carolina. We found this gem with our Golf Now app and played it 4 times. Great layout, greens roll true and fairways are in great shape. Staff and members are very helpful with tips on how to play the course. We will be back next year. What a great time!

Course Shape Very Good

Course is in great shape. Greens quick and true, Bunkers and fairways in great condition as well. Only issue was the tee boxes on par 3's need moved more often.

I live close by and with golf now prices it is well worth the cost. Practice areas close to the clubhouse and are in good shape also. Course can be walked if you choose to.

I will play here again.

Greens are in exceptional shape and rolled true - especially given the state most other courses around the Triangle are in. Pace of play however was pretty horrible. 5.5 hrs is too dang long.

Everything else was great though!
