Very Nice Course

I enjoyed the course today with near perfect weather. Tees, fairways, and greens were all in good condition. My only complaint was that the sand traps were all very hard and difficult to hit out of…

Nice round

Greens are small so it makes your approach challenging but fun. Pace was slow so enjoy the scenic tour the course takes you through the neighborhood. We will be playing again soon.

1st Time out at Lincoln Oaks in 2021

The course was in pretty good shape. The greens were FAST! The fairways were in decent shape for April. The only real issues we had were the bunkers. Some were in decent shape and some were horrible. Staff was friendly as usual. Will return for sure.

Early Season Review

This review is based on the current course conditions as most courses around here are just opening and still working on getting the course fully ready, so keep that in mind.

Overall I was pleased with the outing. There are currently some places that need a good amount of repair, but that's why I say this review is for RIGHT NOW only. When I've played in the past the course has always been well maintained and I anticipate that again in no time. That said, I was able to get a great rate that far outweighs any current course defects.

Pace started slow but got better pretty quickly just a little log jammed to start. Ten was wide open and maybe starting some people on the back 9 first would be helpful.

Lastly, it's a bad look to have your starter training a guy by telling him that communication between the clubhouse and starters and course marshall is a joke. I was sitting there waiting to tee off and all I heard was the starter complaining about poor communication and how "nobody ever tells us what's going on." Doesn't give the consumer much confidence in your business.

South side gem

course was in good shape. still some wet spots around the course, but not a hinderance. I noticed on a few holes, the greens had recessed hole plugs from pin changes. bunkers need some work too. overall, the course was playable, and pace of play was good.

Lincoln Oaks is a great place to play. Staff is friendly and helpful. Course is in good shape considering that the snow has just recently melted away. Some of the traps are in bad shape, but the greens are ok.

They were open!

I was very appreciative that the iron oaks folks were open. They probably shouldn’t of been. But, I had fun. The people were great. They seemed happy to be open, thanks guys.
