Too hard for casual golfer
The course is beautiful. It had just been aerated, so the greens were a brutal combination of lightning fast and bumpy. The greens are very difficult to begin with. Everyone in our foursome struggled. I'm an a golfer that gets out about 6 - 8 times a summer. My skills are not up to the challenge of this course.
A few blind shots, fast greens and some length make this a tougher than most course. Some holes are wide open and a couple are narrow off of the tee. I like a challenge.
Good shape except traps
Recent downpours washed out traps, left with mostly dirt. Otherwise excellent conditioned tees & greens!
Where should I hit it
Everything about this course in wonderful except that on about 5 holes you had no clue where to hit it. It would be nice if they had some tall flags to help out for direction to hit it from the tee. Great condition and friendly staff. Will play again the next time in that area
A little tricky with lots of blind shots going ups and taking a look at the hole would be a good idea if it’s your first time there.
Lick Creek is one of my favorite courses, always challenging, especially holes 5-7. The pro shop attendant was very friendly and courteous. Smiles go a long way! Please put water jugs back out on the course!!
We love to drive an hour to a nice course and get there and realize that half the holes are completely unplayable. The other half was not great, but in totally get that every course needs irrigation. The back nine had over an inch on the greens, couldn't even play it. Went to the pro shop and they told us we should have read the Facebook page. I said, I didn't, but even if I knew it was being irrigated, I never would have thought it was unplayable. And the proshop manager was not nice about it at all. Very bad customer service.
