This course was a restoration project

About 7 or 8 years ago.

Jermy roanoke. The hockey star bought the course and invested alot of effort and it was comming along nicely.

Empisis on Was.

My start of today. Was a completely rude and nasty starter who was a bully. Im the last guy to bully my history will not let me stand down

The once lush and beautiful layout was bare in many spots.

The bunkers were rock not pebble strewn. No one had raked them either the previous nite or in the morning.

The green were dirty with debris and it was painfully obvious that the greens kepper on this track was clueless.

Memorial day weekend and no effort to make the course presentable

Never mind try to show likw one would think. After speaking with management about the starter is was told he’s just kinda gruff.

I used to love this track.

WHAT A SHAME.

I FEEL BAD FOR J. R. And his parents

I know they want this to be a nice course.

This staff are letting the down in a big way.

We played Pembroke Country Club on a Saturday morning in perfect weather, four days after the course got drenched with several inches of rain from the remnants of Hurricane Florence. Consequently, the course was very soft, which made it play longer, but allowed shots to hold the greens that normally might not have checked up.

We chose to play here after reading reviews that praised the course, and others that lambasted the poor condition of the course. In their own ways, both were accurate. Pembroke is a very nicely designed track, and while tree-lined throughout is very playable for the weekend golfer as underbrush has been cleared. The greens rolled true, but were a little inconsistent speed-wise. The rest of the course -- tees, fairways and everything in between -- is in desperate need of better upkeep. Lots of weeds, bare spots etc. that would repair themselves in short order if ownership chose to take care of the turf. It was a shame to see a course with a great layout so poorly cared for.

We will return to play it again when I read reviews that these issues have been addressed.

Water right and left on several holes leading to very tight landing areas. Some very nice par 4s. Condition were good although it was cart path only when I played due to heavy rains (understandable). This is a course you would have to play several times to understand the layout of many of the holes. Very friendly an welcoming staff.

This course held my interest throughout. Plenty of trouble to be found but also enough room to recover. Lots of driving holes but also many requiring distance control to be prepared for the next shot. Very fun day even in drizzly weather.

Overall course was nice. Some very wet spots despite having no rain in the past few days. Good and varied terrain with some elevation and some well protected greens. Friendly and attentive staff.

One thing that I saw on this course that I had never seen before was a set of clocks every 4 to 5 holes telling you if you were ahead or behind expect pace of play. I like this, and I wish more courses would do this.

The only thing had issue with were the the greens were in pretty bad shape. They had been punch recently, had a lot of patchy growth, and not smooth and consistent. Balls bumped along couldn't hold a consistent line.

Aside form the poor greens, for $34 for 18 holes and a cart, the value was excellent.

They are working slowly, but. surely to bring the course back to what it once was.

Biggest issue is the fact they added a set of tees between the men's and women's tees, HOWEVER they are only 80 or so yards longer than women's tees. They have the space to make a set of tees about 57-5800 yards. but they go basically 5300-5400-6000-6700.
