Designed in an understated manner by veteran golfer Hale Irwin, the tree-lined 18 holes at The Country Club at Wakefield Plantation (formerly a TPC course) are laid out on a 217-acre site within the Wakefield Plantation community in Raleigh, close to Falls Lake.
This course was originally one of the TPC course developments sponsored by the PGA tour. Essentially what you have is a housing development that happens to have a golf course inside of it. Although the setting is nice, the course is well conditioned, and there are no really bad holes in general the holes are fairly boring and lack much architectural interest. The greens have very little in the way of contour as well. It’s hard to evaluate how well the architect used the land because the course is so spread out. It is completely un-walkable due to 1/4 mile rides between several of the tee boxes. This would probably be a decent place to play if you happened to be in the area. Probably a fairly typical three ball rating on the Top100 scale maybe a three on the Doak scale.
