Course Review and Comments
I don't recommend this course for anyone looking to enjoy a game of golf. Perhaps if conditions were better and they improved the practice area it would change my mind. Play was also very slow and it was crowded. I had to wait on the second tee, fourth tee, fifth and sixth tee for 10-15 minutes each hole. We walked off after 9 holes due to the slow play. We started at 3:20 pm and would not have made it in before dark.
The sand traps on the golf course were not in good condition either, problems are rocks and the lips are just tired looking. The greens had lots of ball marks, perhaps the quality of player is a little more novice so they don't know better.
The layout is a winner, I hit the ball about 265 off the tee and did not find the course to be short, even though it is under 6500 yards, the holes are well laid out and require some thought. The fairways were decent, except for number 2 which only has grass on one side of the fairway.
It will be a ling time before I try this course again because it will take a long time to get the condition of this course to be a " 5 out of 10". I am not a course snob, I play a lot of public courses and don;t expect Pinehurst or August National, but I do expect grass, sand in bunkers and maybe a smile or hello when I walk into any business to spend my money. I did not get that here.

Wildwood Green Golf Course needs an overhaul. It is a wonderful layout in need of care. located in a neighborhood, homes built on top of the fairways make the course appear tighter than it actually is

This is a generic review. This like many courses have given away memberships to generate cash flow. The problem is that they have given away so many memberships without fees, that those that paid for

This course was in excellent shape considering the hot summer we have had. While other courses(high end country clubs and other semi-private) are having to use temporary greens or greens with no gras

This course is in terrible condition. The driving range is nothing but bare dirt and sand. They have mats that are ripped and torn up.
It looks like they are preparing to close down.

Wildwood Green leaves a negative first impression and goes downhill from there. The practice range is small and mostly sand. They have mats but they are torn and lumpy and not in use. The practice put

We used to live on this golf course and were members. We moved to another golf course community because Wildwood Green was not family friendly. We have since relocated to South Carolina and were back

Not worth the money and there are other better choices in Raleigh.

Reasonable layout, poor conditions, terrible practice facilities and a driving range with warn out and torn mats. The starter was terrible and could not keep the tee on time. She was more concerned wi

This course has a nice, although short, layout. Unfortunately, it takes way too long to play and the rangers do nothing to keep the pace moving. After a three hour and fifteen minute front nine where

Good location, close to Raleigh, but condition is terrible. Watch out for rocks in sand traps and rough, some fairways are hard to identify due to weed- they don;t look cut, also greens are slow, bump

Could be a nice course to play if condition was better. I enjoyed the lay out with the exception of a couple hole. Greens were in good condition.
