Can someone provide me with PUBLIC golf courses, their condition and pricing in West Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs and very Southern Durham?

I would like to know how difficult they are, how much they cost, how nice they are and how easy it is to get on.

Thanks all in advance.

I'll tell you about the two in that general area I've played. I'm not much of a golfer, so have only tagged along with some friends. They are real cheap, so these probably aren't the best, but are probably good values.

Crooked Creek is on Hilltop-Needmore Rd, which is off Lake Wheeler near 401. Somewhere out around Fuquay and Holly Spring. Pretty nice course for the money. Looks like it is $42 during the week. Drops in price after 3pm and you can do just 9 if you wish.

Knight's Play in Apex of 1010 near US 1 is a little par 3 course that is lit. It is only like $15 at peak.

Default golf course information

Can we expand the list to those in N. Raleigh and Wake Forest?

Maybe North Raleigh, but not Wake Forest or at least 2 Western Triangle for every 1 Wake Forest.

This may be outside your acceptable range, but Duke's course is quite nice.

Falls Village and The Crossings in SE Durham are supposed to be passable.

Have not played, though. There's really not too much in your West Raleigh/South Durham/Cary triangle that's not private - most of the public courses are either in the Garner/Clayton/SE Raleigh area, Wake Forest, the university courses (Finley and Duke) or other outlying areas.

Wildwood Green might be about the closest thing beyond those two in Durham I named, but that's in N. Raleigh on the fringe of your area - rimshot!

Lochmere in Cary is public. I don't play golf so I can't really tell you much about the course and fees. I had relatives play there when they visited and they said it wasn't expensive and that is coming from someone who plays golf alot. They said the course was nice too.

Does anyone know if it is tough to get a tee-time on any of these courses?

Olde Liberty Golf Course opened about a month ago. It's 4 miles north of the recently closed Wake Forest Golf Course and 2 miles west on Rt. 96.

You also have Heritage Golf Course, Brevofield and Pascal. All three in Wake Forest.

Wildwood Green is usually crowded but you should be able to get a tee time. The rest are pretty easy although I haven't been to Lochmere in several years.
