Reedy Creek Golf Course
The greens were excellent
It had been raining almost every day the week before I played Reedy Creek. The course was not wet as I would have expected. In fact there were only four holes that were carts on path only, compared to all the other courses in wake county. The course has good drainage and runoff. The greens were fantastic, smooth and true. The staff is always friendly and very helpful. I had a hotdog at the turn it was great tasting and a great value as well. I gave the course and excellent rating because overall I felt like I received a great value for my money that day.

They put new greens in summer of 2014. They are super fast and a real putting challenge. From tee to green the course is not that hard. Those new greens will have you walking away with some 3 or 4 putts, if you are not on your putting game. Makes for some good friendly competition with your playing partners.

Lightening fast greens
Fairways are winter grass but greens and boxes are in nice shape. Leaves were cleaned off the greens for the most part.

New greens are great
I had played Reedy Creek before the greens were redone and the greens were in terrible shape. Now after the refurb. they are great. This really adds value to the course. Before the greens were refurbed I had told myself I wouldn't play here again. But now I will! The course is in great shape with challenging holes and moderate difficulty. I played for $16 and that was a steal. The sand traps are great ! Fairways are nice and the cart paths are in great shape. If you have a course to play this is it.

Nothing special about the course, but nothing really bad about it. Greens were really hard last time I played - if I had any real complaint it would be this and the fact that it seemed like every hole placement was on a slope.
Pace of play decent and course was, overall, in good shape.
Considering other courses and prices, $35 max I would pay to play here.

Greens were excellent. They were receptive but not soft. Rolled very smooth. I played with a Marshall on his day off and he gave me great advice on several holes that had a deceptive greens. Had some relatively easy holes tied into some good par threes. Couple of par 5 were reachable with solid 2nd shots

Becoming Better Each Year
I have played a great number of Gene Hamm designed courses through out North and South Carolina. I have often played this course since its beginning in 1988, although for me it is a forty-five minute drive from my home. As of this writing Reedy Creek Golf Course is in the best shape I have ever seen or played in the last 26 years. I dare say it is as good as any, and better than some, of Gene's other fine courses (Azalea Sands in Myrtle Beach comes to mind).
The new greens have reached their full potential and are smooth and quick, ran about 10 on the Stimpmeter the day we played. (we played all 18, how can you not play 9 when playing 18?) The tee boxes are looking good and the fairways are spot on for a good lie. The practice putting green is a true indication of the green surfaces throughout the course, be sure to tune up prior to play.
Playing on a Tuesday morning, we had no trouble getting around, no ranger was needed nor was one present. We did allow a single to play through on number three tee, but he had been on the driving range when we started so he had no idea we were only a hole ahead and caught our foursome rather quickly. We played in about four hours, maybe a little less, from the back tees; it was as though we had the course all to ourselves, yet we saw quite a few players throughout the day.
This is a fun track with some nice scenery and a few very challenging holes, a few easy ones but a very fine course for the fees charged. The course is easily accessible from both I-40 and I-95 via NC Route 210. If you are traveling through NC toward the coast or down to Myrtle Beach, Reedy Creek is a good course to step off the gas and enjoy a round of golf in the countryside of North Carolina.
