Confition

This course could be special once again. Years ago it was. Condition now is poor. Greens, with the exception of two or three have rebounded.. Fairways are somewhat barren. Roughs are pure hard pan with so much debris. It’s sad, the course is just poorly maintained.

Beautiful setting. Great course !

Fun and challenging from the tips. All good except the 10th green (brown spots) . Go ahead and try and make it to the 12th green in two. Its a straight hole. But from the tips its, 647. Overall lots of fun. Sits next to a beautiful green river. Bald eagles in the trees. Hard to find a better setting for the price anywhere.

Serious Cart Shortage/or dead on the turnaround.

I read a review about this problem but refused to image that it could happen to us. My foursome, all senior citizens, arrived early only to find they had no power carts. In fact, some groups had been waiting an hour. Our tee time was 12:08 and we finally got 2 carts at 1:00. The staff was kind about it, what could they do? One cart died 6 holes into our round. We played bumper cars til we made the turn. With a full charge it was smooth sailing until we backed up to 3 of the slowest golfers ever. Actually we were sandwiched between them and a twosome that kept hitting into us. All in all, not an experience I would want to repeat.

Mismanaged and overbooked

Sad to see a a past mainstay so poorly mismanaged.
For the second time this year, over an hour wait. Booked a tee time, for 1 pm. First told they were about 1/2 hour behind. A 1/2 hour later was told another half hour. Finally just left. Management rude when asked when or if play would be available.

This summer Lewis River has been a big disappointment. More than once, carts have died mid-round. I would steerclear until their management issues are resolved.

Average Golfer

There was several groups in front of us who just took their time. I started as a aingle, allowed to play theough a foursome, joined a threesome, two only played nine, a aingle joined us, then thise two quit due to the slow pace in front of us and then finally joined the original foursome who let me play through as the groups in front of us were soooooo slow. Otherwise a great day.

Needs Investor

I played this course many times years ago. The Clubhouse was spectacular! The course conditions Good!
Now - this course needs an Investor! Needs someone who can restore the Clubhouse and course. Clubhouse needs re-painting. Couse - needs maintenance. It looked like it hasn't been mowed in several days, a few greens were bad and need replacing. Pace of play slow.
This was - and could be again - a great place.

Not Prepared

Made two tee times on line, including riding carts. They were not prepared for the number of players on a holiday weekend, and did not have carts. We had two people with knee replacements and two that need them, so walking was not really an option. When we complained about it, the starter blamed it all on covid and was very unhappy that she would get "yelled at". We weren't yelling, but it is a long way to drive to have the day ruined by horrible planning on their part. They came up with three carts, and brought another one out about 8 holes in, so there was an effort made to make it right, but there were many other people that were just as upset as we were and were not accommodated. The wait staff in the bar were all terrific, and the course was in good shape even with the lack of rain.

You can tell they really enjoying the golfers and know the game of golf ... The starter and marshall's are very nice, and helpful, they kept the course moving on time.They all go out of the way to help you . The greens are in beautiful shape and running fast!!!!
I enjoyed warming up on the driving range, and pratctice green.
It is a full scale course right down to the grill ... has a veiw of the Lewis River!
I do appreciate the Traditional Golf Attire Dress Code, This is a very special course for sure....
I wish more golf course's could be like this one! A great find, wonderful hidden secret and great golf,

First Time

Played the white tees for the first time. Shot an 84. Front nine is easy and the back nine is tough. Greens were in great shape and a little slow. Really an enjoyable round. Will play again.

I love the course, tee times are plentiful but they have to get more golf carts, both powered and pull.

Trash

Been two years since I've played here. Gonna be at least 2 years before I go back. Sand smeared all over the greens and around the fringe. Led to inconsistent green speeds. There was more brown grass than green grass on the fairways. Some spots had no grass at all. Staff was nice enough. When we were leaving heard some golfers talking about walking because they had "issues" with the carts. Sad because I used to love this course. If they charged 20 to walk 18 in stead of 40 which is more expensive than both mint and three rivers which are far better, I might play here more. Not worth it by a long shot.

Course has been in better shape

Showed up an hour before our tee time only to be told we had to wait for a Cart which didn’t happen until after our tee time. Tried to reserve one but they aren’t reserving carts , group in front of us showed up 5 minutes before their tee time and were given the 2 carts right when they showed up. Course has been in better shape. Multiple greens have brown spots on them . Won’t be back their until next summer
