Great layout but course needs some work

The layout of course is great and somewhat challenging, especially the first several holes. But the tee boxes are pretty beat up with dead grass. And the greens are slower than the practice green and not consistent.

Awesome course but greens really need to either hand players a divot repair tool or have staff come out to repair them

Disappointed

Played 18 on 8/7. Pouring rain all day, visible lightning and thunder all day. Course was flooded, could barely play most shots. Round should have been called for safety but also due to course conditions. A bit disappointed in the usually great LM staff and course.

Good, not Great

Nice course and layout. Pace of play was good until we caught up with two very intoxicated and slow players! Wouldn’t have been so bad if the Ranger hadn’t decided to stop and talk and laugh (on two different holes) instead of moving the pace of play along. They, nor the ranger had any regards to the players playing behind them. We ended up having to go around them and skip a hole in order to finish before dark.
Paid for 18, had time for 18, but only played 17!

Outstanding for mid-November

Lost Marsh was in fantastic shape yesterday, including greens, tee boxes, sand (like sugar), and fairways. Weather was a little cool, but playable. The people there are nice, especially Kevin Sherman who is a Pro Shop Manager, and there were people blowing leaves to minimize the chance of losing a ball. In short, they are doing everything right, and it shows.
One minor gripe: The carts will freeze up and force the driver to exit backwards based on a sensor, which is set at least 60 or more yards from the green. It can be a bit annoying, particularly when you don't even think you are anywhere close. Happened to us several times, but we adjusted and stayed on the paths from 100 yards and in.

2nd time this year!!! Awesome time!!!

So first off!! I played horrible!!! Wind and front 9 killed my crappy tee shots. With that said, again Wow!!! Staff all the way around the board was fan fricking tastic!!!!! Most pleasant group ever!!! Tee boxes were rough, but not horrible. A few greens were really soft, but better than most. The deer after 11 were so cool!! And adorable!!! Rangers are so much fun!! Beer hut girl was sweet and funny!! Club house help were astounding!!! We were RVing so made an all day event. After round we played the par 3 course just because it was so beautiful out. Then went to dinner upstairs. When we explained our diet to the bartender/ waitress she picked our meals to perfection. Wish I remembered her name to give her a personal shoutout. Spent the night in the lot with 24 hr security!!! I truly appreciate and recommend this course to everyone!!! You may view things differently, but we loved every second of it!!! You all should be proud of your service and keep it up!!!

Even with diseased greens, still a must play.

Hadn't been here in forever. My wife started golfing 4 years ago and wanted to try it, despite my warnings lol.

This is one of the most visually intimidating courses from the tees you'll ever play. It's as much fun figuring out where to hit the ball (your first time) as it is the actual playing.

Kind of surprised to read about the person who was treated poorly by the staff. I get it, everyone has a bad day but we were treated phenomenally by everyone.

Now for the bad part: it broke my heart to see what the greens have become. I can't/won't say they are trashed, but they are bad. Really bad. Some a lot worse than others.
