Clean as could be

They keep this course very clean. A local told me not to play it and I’m glad I didn’t listen. Pleasantly surprised for a city course. I would go back. Awesome greens.

Bad condition

Visiting from out of town and decided to play this course and was really disappointed. Greens were fine, but the best of the course needed to be cut, made any ball not hit in the fairway extremely hard to find, especially on blind shots which killed the fun of my round.

Wouldn't recommend playing this course until they do some major maintaining to the grass.

Tates Creek

Was not able to play because Granddaughter we are sitting this week had school canceled at 10pm the night before play. Golfnow has no customer service or you can't get refund on Hot Times. Course would have allowed 6 year old to ride along but did not want to cause a disturbance. Poor customer service fron Golfnow,

Paired up

Good course but didn't like how they pair you up in groups of 4. Booked a 11:15 time with a buddy and had to wait for two more guys to come and tee up with us. I paid for 2 so should of been able to play with two.

Good for the price

Another great deal from the city of Lexington. Course is challenging in parts with lots of hills and trees, but also has several birdie holes on it. I'll be back again soon.

Review of Tate's creek

Still early in the season so it wasn't groomed the best, very high patchy roughs. Greens were in great shape and fast. Fairways were decent. Overall fun course

Same old Tates Creek

Course is in pretty good shape for late fall. The maintenance staff has done a fair job of leaf control and the course is very playable

Like Tates Creek

It wasn't pristine, but the layout was nice and the greens were pretty good; they held and rolled true. Greens are challenging to hit because they slope off to the sides.

Weekend get-away

Okay, this course was extremely hilly and finding a level lie in the fairway almost impossible...what a test of golf! The greens were in excellent shape and I thought they were quite fast so they would hold you're line. We went due to price on the now but I would play it again at full price.
