Alright, here you go:
Cary:
- Lochmere *** - Not in greatest condition, but reasonablly priced. Good for weekday round. Don't go on weekends. Too busy.
South Raleigh (401 South):
- Eagle Ridge ****- Very well maintained. Beautiful course, but a bit too much housing development on back-9. Nice range. Reasonably priced and accepts calendar card.
- RGA * - I only add this if you are looking for cheap, easy round of golf. Definitely a muni.
Durham area:
- Falls Village **** - Very well maintained. NO HOUSES!!! Reasonably priced. Narrower fairways and smaller greens so it is more challenging. Practice facilities are so-so.
- Crooked Creek *** - Well maintained, but very gimmicky. Least favorite course in that area.
Raleigh:
- Wildwood Green *** - Well maintained, but layout isn't the best. NC State uses this as their course. Too expensive for course.
- Hedingham ** - Not very well maintained, and lot's of houses on top of the course, but the course is pretty challenging given the low price. Good for weekday round, but don't go on weekend.
Clayton:
- River Ridge **** - Excellent condition, and not too expensive. You'll either love the layout or not. Hard to hate the layout, but some holes might be a little gimmicky for some.
- Riverwood (27 holes) ***1/2 - Very good condition. One of the nines is pretty gimmicky, and the members don't like it, which is why non-members usually end up playing it as one of the nines. Deer Run 9 is long and challenging. Not expensive!
- The Neuse ****1/2 - Very good condition, but a bit of a drive (on the east side of Clayton). One of the better courses in the area. Back 9 is significantly harder than front.

Hit em well!

I will edit to what someone posted earlier - I have played all of these many times over the years. I now play at Bentwinds in Fuquay which is by far head and shoulders above all these courses.

Alright, here you go:
Cary:
- Lochmere ** - Goat track. Do not play after it has rained .25 inches or you will need you waders.
South Raleigh (401 South):
- Eagle Ridge ***- Well maintained course, pace of play is wayyyy to slow. Count on 5 hours for a round.
- RGA * - I only add this if you are looking for cheap, easy round of golf. Definitely a muni.
Durham area:
- Falls Village *** - Not a back place if the cash is running low.
- Crooked Creek *** - Good condition. Lots of public play for a "semi-private" course. Front and Back nines are like night and day...totally different.
Raleigh:
- Wildwood Green ** - Goat track, very short, hit or miss on the conditions
- Hedingham * - STAY AWAY!!!
Clayton:
- River Ridge **** - Excellent condition, and not too expensive. Awsome greens, nice fairways, good layout with some risk/reward holes.
- Riverwood (27 holes) ** - Original 18 is OK, front 9 is the best 9 holes. The extra 9 holes are terrible. Hit or miss conditions, usually not very good.
- The Neuse *** - haven't played in a while so I am not sure of this one.
