Reedy Creek is a good course for not much green (get it?
) Lakeshore in Durham is good too. If you want more bang for your buck (better conditions for a little more money), The Neuse, River Ridge, and Eagle Ridge, and Falls Village are the ticket. Unfortunately, they closed two of the best low cost courses - Wake Forest and Cheviot Hills. As always, I encourage duffers to go out around midday, which is after the most serious golfers have teed off and before the late day rush where people generally are looking for a quick round.
If I had any advice to any golfer in the Triangle, it is this: go get the Calendar Card. It is an actual calendar with pictures of local courses, but on the back is a card to cut out that has discounts to many local courses of all types and prices. It is good for the whole year. Usually you save $5-$8 per round, sometimes more, but you make up the price of the calendar after about 5 rounds. Most of the courses give weekend anytime discounts until April and after Oct-Nov, and others continue to give weekend discounts later in the day.
