It actually is a hidden gem

Lexington Golf Club is the old Lexington Country Club, now run as a public course by the city. It's tucked away in a quaint setting -- the clubhouse and pro shop is across the street from the 1st and 10th tees. There are (at least) 3 different parking lots. It's different from a lot of more modern courses ... and for most golfers that's a good thing.

Because of its former life, it doesn't feel much like a muni. It is tucked inside a neighborhood, but most of the holes border other golf holes, not real estate. It's architecture and its length -- it's a very short course -- will give golfers who never played at an old-style club a feel for yesteryear. Break out your persimmon-head clubs and your balata balls and go at it.

It is a clever layout. Like a lot of old courses, it's cut through some rough ground -- creeks, hills, etc. They best land was left to the neighboring homes. This makes sense both for home and golf course. Yes, those dang creeks keeping popping up, eating golf balls, but really, who wants to play on boring, flat pieces of ground? Nearly all the fairways at LGC have some pitch and roll, both sideways and up and down. Some are quite dramatic. Tee shots require some thought. Driveable par-4's -- and there are a few -- demand a certain amount of precision.

The small-is greens are cool, too, with lots of slope and roll. Approach shots won't be long on most holes, but hitting greens, or hitting greens near the pin, isn't easy. The course is short, but it's harder than it looks. "Little" golf is fun. A typical quirky layout -- back-to-back par'3's for instance -- add to the interest.

We played on a hot summer day. The tees and fairways were in good shape.. The bent grass (?) greens were surprisingly. Hot, humid weather usually isn't their friend, but they were fairly soft (the area was in the beginnings of a drought), putted true, albeit not super fast, and were a delight.

The facilities are kind of spartan. The clubhouse, underneath the old clubhouse building beside the cart shed, is small. Don't go here expecting a big meal at the club. But the people were cordial, and no one will starve in these parts. If you're playing here you're in Lexington, N.C., home of the world famous Lexington-style barbecue. A half dozen superb barbecue dinners await, just minutes away.

Lots of courses are tagged as "hidden gems." This one really is. It's an old Carolina country club that anyone can play for a municipal course price. That's a pretty good deal. Try it out some time.

Lexington Golf Club

Lexington Golf Club is a great municipal facility in Lexington, NC. It's location in town does prevent it from having a driving range. The course itself is well maintained all the way around. Greens are always in good shape from tee to green. The course isn't overly long, 6100 yards from the tips, but the rolling terrain, elevation changes, and doglegs make for challenging holes. You will hit different clubs off the tee; a 14 driver course it is not. The rates can't be beaten for a course of this stature in the area.

Course was in good shape. Pace of play was about 4 hours 15 minutes. Should be a lot faster out here but a few slow groups ruined the pace.

Nice course—great value!

Normally would not expect too much when green fees are only $35, but was pleasantly surprised by the condition of this course and the greens.. For the most part the course was in great shape. I enjoyed the course quite a bit as it was challenging but not overlly difficult. After not having played for quite some time it was the perfect course to get back at it! The Round was a little slow, but not excessively so. We waited a few minutes to tee off on most holes. Will def be back though!!
