The Neuse Golf Club
This course provides the best challenge for a fair price.
I've played almost all of the public courses in the Raleigh/Durham area and The Neuse is by far my favorite. The course is well maintained throughout the year and provides a challenge for all types of players. I'm always impressed with how well the staff takes care of the course, the greens especially. With the great rates on GolfNow, The Neuse simply can't be matched in the area.

Best Value in Raleigh
Easily the best course for the price in The Raleigh area. Never too crowded, great staff, and the choice of tee boxes makes the course challenging. I always find the course in great shape no matter what time of year.

We weren't expecting anything when we drove from Durham where we were visiting our daughter to play here, but were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were very accommodating, allowing us to go out early as a twosome & we played in 3.5 hours. The greens were in superb shape, & many of the holes, particularly on the back 9 were very tricky as well as scenic. We can't wait to play there again when there is more foliage, making it not only prettier, but visually daunting. Great value, would highly recommend.

Good course at a good value
I have played this course several times and always look forward to it. Challenging layout but very fair.....several blind shots, but not much target golf. Staff is friendly and the grounds crew does a nice job keeping the course in good shape. The greens were in excellent condition allowing for a true roll.

Well maintained, friendly staff
While it was just one day after quite a bit of rain, for the most part the course as in good shape. Greens were especially impressive and rolled true. Lots of challenging holes but none that seem un-playable. Staff was to a person very friendly and open to chat. I think the Neuse is the best-maintained and most enjoyable course I have played in Raleigh.

Nice course don't play it when it is wet.
Nice course but the day we played was wet. Cart path only makes the course even longer. Greens were in great shape and rolled well. Will not play it again when it is wet. Will recommend to my friends and I will play it again when it is dry. The fee through Golfnow was really good. Enjoyed the round.

Played on 2/15/13. Greens in great condition, fairways a little wet. Fun, fair course with elevation changes and side hill lies. Some strong par 4's. Very good value. Will be back when everything greens up!

One of the best golf courses around Raleigh
I haven't golfed every course in the Raleigh area, but I have visited quite a few and this is the best course I've played yet. Everything, from the driving range to the clubhouse to the course itself, is in pristine shape. The course is challenging, but average players like myself can still have a good time. I really enjoyed all of the elevation changes and the overall course design. It is definitely worth the drive from Raleigh and I will come back and play here again.

Challenging and well-maintained
This course is awesome and challenging.
Lay-out of course is challenging, green speed is fast and fairway is well maintained.
The only thing to be improved is some wet ground near the green at several holes.

Course was very WET. Extremely challenging especially to hit the ball flush. Any kind of thin or fat shot made to hole difficult. It was hard to get going since the driving range was closed again due to a very wet course. I would wait another week or so and allow the course to dry out.

Good condition for January and great price
We had a great outing, and definitely enjoyed the course which was in pretty good shape, especially for mid-January. I'll definitely be back again once the weather warms.

This course requires thoughtful shots
Great course. Many different styles of holes. Some up & down, some straight ahead, etc....Great par 3's. I would have to say that is doesn't drain too well but other than that, no flaws. Worth the drive into Clayton.

Greens are in great shape! Fast
Greens were very fast and true. Don't be above the hole

Excellent condition, nice layout.
Loved the course. Nice variety of holes. The greens were in outstanding condition. I am not the straightest off the tee but felt very comfortable driving here. Will definitely return next time in Raleigh.

Very Fun Track
The course was in great condition given the amount of rain that fell the day before. The range was closed which was disappointing. It was a very fair course with a lot of challenging pin positions. I will definitely come back to play this course again.

Always a solid choice!!
I'm from the area and we play The Neuse fairly often. The course is usually well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. I think it is a fair and challenging layout. The course does play long so if you plan on playing the tips you better have your BIG BOY pants on!!

Challenging course. Friendly staff.
Course was in good condition for the time of year. Extremely challenging. Look forward to playing it during peak season. Staff was friendly and helpful.

GolfNow has changed Golf!
Since GolfNow came out, Ive been able to play better courses which used to be out of my budget. Cant wait for more courses to join the bandwagon!

Can't make up my mind
Can't make up my mind about the Neuse. It has some beautiful holes on the back 9, and it has variety in terms of design. But there are some things that regardless of the circumstance don't sit right with me, things like OB on both side of the hole, OB on one side and red staked on the other. You need some bailout. Additionally, and I found this especially true of the front 9, I felt a little claustrophobic being surrounded by houses and the whirring sound of leave blowers for much of the day. Greens and fairways were in excellent shape for this time of the year, but I would suggest some additional work on drainage. Lotta mud and moisture for it being so dry.

Great value and fun to play
Course was well maintained overall. It was a lot of fun to play except for the slow group in front of us.

Great to play in off season
Without the crowd there bc of the cold weather and the value with golfnow made it worth driving 45 min to head out and play a well maintain course even in bad weather

Plays like a country club without the country club price!
The course is well maintained and challenging from any tee box. Each hole has it's own character and is well thought out. Any golfer at an intermediate level or above can enjoy The Neuse.

This course was in good condition
The course was in cood condition, but the greens need to be cut. They were pretty slow for weekend play. Also, range balls $6 small bucket and $11 for large. This course is not at the level of Pinehurst, Finley, or Tobacco Road, and I would expect the ppricing to be somewhere similar to local courses. Just a thought.

Great course trouble a first tee
This course was in excellent condition. The greens rolled true with subtle breaks that made scoring low difficult but fair. They would hold the approach shots but were fast and consistent. The rough was tough and made you make a decision on your approach. The course is a little short from the blues but rough made up for it. There was a mix up with the start time as they double booked The golf now time at 9:00 am. The starter wanted to send me out as a single in the middle of a bunch of foursomes which I explained would be miserable so the pushed me back 20 minutes to pair me up. Other than that it was a great experience.

Bring your A game or you'll be sorry, some spectacular water holes, they have tees for every level it a fade player dream left to right on 70% of the holes swing hard and enjoy the course

beautiful, resonably challenging course
Enjoyed course; played on weekday, beautiful weather, not at all crowded, no one pushing our group. Reasonably challenging for average players with much better than average course conditions.

I love this place
Simply put, the best value I've found in the triangle area in terms of conditions, difficulty, and pace of play. I last played in late September and didn't wait on a single tee box, which is a big deal for me. The greens were fast and true and the elevation change and fairway shape make ball striking and shot shaping very important. If I lived closer, I would play here a lot more often

Fun, challenging course in great condition
This is a beautiful, fun course. Greens and fairways were in perfect condition. The rough is really tough, especially around the greens. The course is fairly easy if you can keep it in the fairway. Lots of elevation changes and some blind shots. Really nice practice area.
