Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
Thank you fro the very nice Four Star review of Lion's Paw. We truly appreciate it and we hope you will visit us again soon.
Coming from Ohio i was told to play the cat courses. We tried Lion's Paw and to be fair it has been raining alot. Crabgrass everywhere, greens in rough shape and grass needs mowed. Looks like a great course at one time......just not right now.7
We sincerely apologize we fell short of your expectation on your most recent visit. Heavy rain and intense heat in the weeks prior to our visit certainly contributed greatly to the issues you described. Fortunately these conditions are very much temporary and are now improving daily. We are looking forward to a great remainder of 2023 and beyond.
Thank you for the positive review of your visit to Lion's Paw. We truly appreciate your patronage and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Thank you so much for the nice Four Star review of Lion's Paw. The greens have healed up nicely and getting even better daily. We are looking forward to a great remainder of 2023 and beyond! We hope you will visit us again soon and see our continued progress.
Greens were pathetic; but we warned, although not sufficiently. General lack of maintenance, but for $45, you can't expect a lot more in the heat of July.
Thank you for reviewing your visit to Lion's Paw. We appreciate your patronage and your feedback. We deeply apologize we fell short of your expectations on this visit. We are currently undergoing extensive greens renovations to ensure Lion's Paw is in great condition for the remainder of 2023 and beyond. We hope you will visit us again and see our progress and growth.
Pulling up to the putting green, I saw I may be in for a rough day on the greens. We had to do 2 putt max, as there wasn't a single green that was 100% playable with a smooth roll. We (2some) were off first, and played in under 3 hours. 1 hole the sprinklers were on while we attempted to putt. Another hole, the flag wasn't put back into the cup. I mentioned these things, and the greens and the guy working said it was the weathers fault. I live 2 hours from here, and my club has almost perfect greens. So it's not the weather. 10 years ago, this course was terrific but I guess funding has decreased. Panther's Run looked the same.
Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Lion's Paw Golf Links. We apologize we fell short of your expectations on this visit. The weather certainly did throw us some curve balls this spring. Though Raleigh is only 3.5 hours away, in this region, even a few miles can make a big difference in the weather conditions you receive. Regardless, we apologize we were not in our best condition on this visit. We are currently doing an extensive renovation on these greens and they will once again be in excellent playing condition for our guests for the remainder of 2033 and beyond.
Greens in terrible shape
Did not find out until we arrived that greens were “aerated “. Greens with multiple dead spots, areas of irregular sod, massively inconsistent from hole to hole. Layout is great , management needs to invest in playable greens.
Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Lion's Paw Golf Links. We apologize you happened to play at a time we were doing some required maintenance to our greens. We did offer our guests a discounted rate for this period and gave them the option to play one of our other courses, if preferred. These conditions are very much temporary and the course will be in very good condition once again in the coming days. We hope you will visit us again and see our continued improvement and progress.
Thank you for the very nice Four Star review of Lion's Paw. We really appreciate it and hope you will visit us again soon!
I would have to tell my friends that the greens are in really bad shape.
Thank you for taking the time to review your round at Lion's Paw. We greatly appreciate the nice Four Star review. Several unexpected factors have hampered our greens during the late spring, but with the rapidly improving weather conditions, the condition of the greens will be rapidly improving as well. We are looking forward to the remainder of 2023 and beyond and we hope you will visit us again and see our continued progress. Thanks again.
The greens were in very poor condition. Staff very friendly & accommodating. Course needs a year with no play to survive & begin to once again thrive like in the past.
Lions Paw fun
Enjoyed the round at a lLions Paw. Fantastic staff that was super friendly, honest, and helpful. Although the greens were terrible, the price adjustment helped. They were honest about the condition of the greens up front. I hope the greens improve as the layout, fairways, tees, experience were all great. Thanks for a fun day. I’ll return.
Greens were very disappointing in comparison to the rest of the course. Very weedy, Burnt, and bumpy.!! They’re in desperate need of love! Rest of the course was nice, the tee boxes were level and the fairways are in great shape and well. For the price I give it 3/5 stars. First time there would not recommend until greens are repaired.
Thank you for taking the time to review your round at Lion's Paw. We apologize for the condition of the greens. We have been aggressively treating the issues you described and will continue to do so. We fully expect the overall conditions to continue to improve rapidly and for the greens to be in great shape for the summer. We also have a plan in place to use some newly available products to proactively treat these issues and make sure we do not experience a similar situation in the future. We apologize again and hope you will visit us again soon to see our continued progress.
Surprised the greens were in such poor shape for this golf course.

The Paw was alittle tired
Majority of the greens were in poor condition and number a fairways had rough spots.
Beware of looking for balls near the water… yiu might meet a new friend
Switched to Panthers Run
I wanted to play Lions Paw but a Member tournament took precedent and caused me to be bumped to Panthers Run. A much lower rated course.
This course was in horrible condition. Greens had little or no grass. Bunkers no sand. With gators and snakes abound, it wasn't the safest course either. Restrooms locked code didn't work. Icing on the cake, No Food or Water available.
I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS COURSE TO ANYONE PERIOD.
We apologize you were switched to a different course. I'm not sure of the circumstances on the day you played, but our staff tries to accommodate all of our guests to make sure they have the best overall experience possible. Panther's Run and Lion's Paw are very comparable courses. In fact, Panther's Run is often rated even higher than Lion's Paw in many listings, as it is newer and has some very unique design features. Regardless, we apologize you were not satisfied with your experience and we would like to work with you to help resolve the issue. If you can contact me directly at email@example.com, I will work with you to find a solution. Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
Put MONEY into the course
These courses have so much potential but the course conditions are so sub-par that it’s not worth the money. Greens were very bumpy, lumps of grass, some greens had little grass, just sprayed with the green stuff. Tight lies were everywhere even in the middle of the fairways. Staff is extremely friendly and courteous which was a plus. Knowing it’s Resort Golf I still wish a Marshall would “speed slow players “ along
Thank you for taking the time to review your round at Lion's Paw. We apologize we were not at our best during your visit. We have been aggressively treating the issues you described and there has been significant improvement since you played. We expect the conditions to continue to improve rapidly now and for all of the bermuda greens to be in great shape for the summer. We also have a plan in place to use some newly available products to proactively treat these issues and make sure we do not experience a similar situation in the future. We hope you will visit us again and see our continued progress.
Poor Poor Greens
The whole course needs some TLC, all of the greens are worst that I have played on in 20 years. Staff were very friendly.. Would not recommend this course.
We deeply apologize for the unsatisfactory conditions you described. Lion's Paw was hit by a breakout of Poa Annua this spring, similar to many other bermuda greens courses in our area, and we very aggressively treated this issue with every available viable product. After a couple of weeks, the conditions began to improve considerably, as the Poa began to dissipate. The weak areas left behind on a few of the greens have also bee addressed and the course should be back to 100% in the coming days. We have formulated a plan of action, using some newly available products, to assure we do not experience a similar issues in the future. Hopefully you made your concerns known to the staff on duty, as they are empowered to do whatever necessary to make sure each guest has an ultimately satisfactory experience. If this is not the case, please let me know and we will work with you to rectify this issue. Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will come up with solution. Thank you and we appreciate your understanding of this unfortunate, but temporary situation.
