Scenic Course on a Comeback

After a few years of neglect, this course has really bounced back! Greens and tee boxes are excellent and well-maintained. The sand traps have now received the attention that they needed. There are a number of challenging holes, and the many trees make hitting the fairways a necessity.

Lincoln Greens

The course has stood up well this year. Prior years found grass-less fairways.
A few rough spots but you can just take a drop if it should be ground under repair.
Overall, pretty nice and played twice in last week in under 4 hours.

Slowest Rate of Play

Slowest rate of play I’ve ever experienced in my life, took 1 hour and 40 minutes to play 3 holes before I gave up. Luckily I was able to get a rain check. Way to many large groups let off around the same time for cart path only. Poorly managed tee timing.

Ok - Needs some work

The greens were aerated a couple weeks ago and are in excellent condition. They rolled true. The course has a lot of sand traps on it. The traps contained very little loose sand and were rock hard. The fairway and rough on a lot of the holes has sizable spots of crabgrass or bald spots. Sometimes you get a great lie and sometimes you’re basically in an area that needs to be marked as ground under repair. I paid $18 to play 18 holes with a cart. For that price the course was accepted, but I would not pay much more than that to play here.

Poor Shape

I have played Lincoln Greens several times in the past few years. This was the poorest condition the course has ever been. All of the back nine fairways had been plugged and they all were is very poor condition. This was never mentioned before play and the charged full price green fees. Very disappointed!!!!! I appeared that they hadn't cut much grass other that the greens for several days. Just very poor conditions. At this time I would not recommend playing Lincoln Greens until the conditions improve.

Lincoln Greens - Morton Review

The city of Spfld isn't really keeping this course up to par. Although the grass is being cut...there are huge patches of crab grass even on the fairways. Many greens have issues around the fringe, with some having bare spots on the greens. Some cart paths are really nice blacktop, then some are just in terrible shape. This course really needs some tender loving care! I remember when this was the premier course in Spfld...not any more! Still...I love the layout, and the lake views. Still fun to play!
