Wil-Mar Golf Course
Good Course for Value
Once again good course for value. I got on for 27.00 on Saturday morning. Can't beat that. The course was in good condition. For those who know Wilmar it's a confidence course. Back nine can challenge a little bit. But for the value no complaints here. Pace of play was a little slow....would be only negative.

Great Value For the Money!!!!!!
The course was in great shape for the most part. However, there were two things were a little less than par. The greens are for the most part in great shape. However, on about 7 of the holes there are areas that are being patched (new sod being laid and little aeration). They are also fixing 1-3 tee boxes, but that doesn't take away from the play. Otherwise, this course was great for the price!!!! The fairways are mint, and the management is really putting money back into the course. 4 STARS

Winter was tough on Wil-Mar, but they have been working very hard to get the course back into the condition it normally is in. They have laid sod on just about all the tees that had winter damage. They have also patched and repaired all but one green that had damage. The pro shop attendant said that the last green would be fixed in the next few days along with a few more tee boxes. I am very impressed with how much work they have done in the last few weeks. You can tell they are really trying hard to fix things as quick as possible. The difference now and 4 weeks ago is night and day. The fairways actually came out of the winter better than most courses I have played in the area. If you had a disappointing experience back in April or May I highly suggest you try them again. Also the friendliest staff in the area hands down!

Nice people, not worth the $
Course was chewed up and much of it was under some sort of repair. One hole was unuseable. The people were very kind, but the course conditions were not worth the price.

Wait for Better golf
Memorial day. The course informed us that one green was being replaced and not playable. OK.
There were at least 4 temporary tee boxes - Taking at least 200 yards off a short course. Most of the tee boxes have no grass at all. teing off was not a pleasure as the ground was very hard and bare,
Surprising, the fairways were ok in most places. did not need to roll the ball at all. Green were just OK but were very un-smooth. several putts would bounce off line. these need to be rolled to smooth them to a very playable level.

"IN THE ROUGH"
Those of us living on the eastern seaboard know the winter past was quite a battle for golf courses in the area. Bermuda turf, whether greens or fairway, took a beating and to this point in time have not fully recovered. The greens staff at Wil-Mar Golf Course are working daily to achieve recovery but things are not up to the level of their desires nor that of their clients. To judge the course conditions is unjust, they are what they are until an appropriate time for recovery is allowed.
I have not played Wil-Mar for a great many years, however the staff and the layout are as enjoyable and friendly as I recall from the last century, when I played there in 1989. A truly nice Carolina layout much as Donald Ross would have created; small, raised, undulating greens guarded by bunkers or water, open fairways and some troubles here and there, not over powering but a challenge all the same.
Some greens are in a state of repair or recovery but for the most part putted well but a bit slow, maybe an eight on the Stimpmeter. The fairways are very playable in almost every case. The golf carts are new and powered by gasoline so they move out quite quickly; get in and hang on, and use those bottles of sand provided to fill your diviots!
(Also, by the way, our group played the entire course, all eighteen holes, how can you not play nine holes if you play eighteen?)
You will happy to know the practice area and driving range are in full operation and the practice putting surfaces at the club house are very good replicas of the greens (especially speed) you will find on the course.
If you are searching for a local golf course that will not 'break the bank' yet challenge you to your highest level of play give Wil-Mar a round or two, I am sure you will find the course and staff welcoming and appreciative of your patronage.

great course, tough winter
I play here quite often and golf course is always in good shape. The winter was terrible and certain areas show some winter damage, but the staff is aware and is working to repair the damage. All courses that I have played across the area with Bermuda grass have some issues on greens, tees, and fairways.

No Marshalls three groups booked at 3:04 and no one knew to let faster groups thru. People left after nine and we were waiting on 11 tee box. Greens we're rough, maybe from excess foot traffic, slow greens for slow play
