Lochmere...A Golf Experience!

Lochmere Golf Club is a semi-private course in the cozy town of Cary, North Carolina and offers its members and guest an enjoyable golf experience. With tree-lined fairways and abundant water hazards and strategically placed bunkers, this course is challenging for most golfers, but not overly difficult. The par 71, 6,627 yard course was designed by Gene Hamm and opened in 1985. With a course rating of 132/72.1, this is course offers a variety of shots for all levels of golfers.

Some of the more memorable holes on this course include the Par 5 9th hole which is a  long drive down a narrow fairway that opens up on your second shot. Your second shot must be long enough to put you in position to carry the pond in front of the green. The green is long, but somewhat narrow with bunkers on one side, and woods on the other. You cannot go too long on your approach shot to the green as it has a water hazard on the back side of the green that many will not know about unless you find yourself going over the green.

The Par 4 10th hole is a very picturesque hole that is very open for your tee shot,but your second must carry a creek. The green is secured with a bunker in the front left corner and woods to the right. You follow this hole with a short Par 3 that requires you to shape your shot to avoid the water just off the tee box and the water that runs down the left side towards the green. If you are too far left, a ball will roll into the water. The safe shot is to go left to avoid the impending water.

The Par 4 14th has an unusual feature around the green. After carrying a creek in front of the tee box and staying left to avoid the water that runs down the right side of the fairway, the approach shot must not only avoid the deep bunker in the right front corner of the green, but the island within the bunker. The worst approach on this hole would be to land in the bunker, right behind the island, making for a near impossible sand shot.

These are just a few of the memorable holes on this local favorite course, but you really must experience it if you enjoy a challenging course with tons of water hazards and bunkers.
