Good Decision

Derek, (the Sup) has the greens going back to good condition. Challenging course with two COMPLETELY different side. One side is flat, and the other is unique with lots of hills and draws. Can be very challenging. Course employees are extremely friendly.

Without a doubt the absolute worst golf course I’ve ever played. Whoever is supposed to be maintaining this course doesn’t have a clue how to do so. Would never play this course again not even for free

Greens in rough shape

Played on a Saturday afternoon and it was wide open. Course length provides challenges from each tee for proper skill of golfer. All greens were heavily over sanded to the point it looked like landing on a bunker with each approach shot. Large dead spots on greens made putting near impossible on several holes. Outside of that course was enjoyable but very difficult to give a strong review when greens weren’t very playable.

Nice Place!

Course, staff, and other players were 10/10. A few of the greens were in bad shape though. Will definitely be back!

Hot day at Lion Hills

The good: Course layout has potential. A number of tees for different skill levels. Great price through GolfNow. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Course was not crowded (it was a Wednesday morning).
The not so good: Tee boxes need to be leveled and grass cut. Lots and lots of weed trimming needed along edges of cart paths, etc. Greens had lots of dead spots. Carts paths need repairs. Too many back jarring bumps.
