Greens were great

The greens were in great shape barring some pock marks where prior ball marks were not repaired or incorrectly repaired. They were very fast and putted true. The fairways were about 50/50. Some were covered with crab grass, making it a necessity to roll the ball instead of playing it down. The worst was a lack of distance marking. I know lots of folks have range finders, but I have no problem estimating my yardage from 100, 150 and 200 if only those would be clearly marked. I don't understand why it is so difficult for courses to simply mark those 3 distances. They did have a few striped poles at the 150 mark, but not all holes had them.

Challenging but fair.

Looking for a family, friendly course, in Central Ky., to play golf. Longview, is one sweet deal. Fresh, comfortable, but speedy carts. Both challenging but fair, for all skill levels. Is the best way to describe Longview Golf Course. If you haven't already played there, take advantage of the opportunity when you're nearby. You won't be disappointed.

Maybe Canewood next week.

Fairways & greens were pretty good. The rough and tee boxes had some of Kentucky’s finest crabgrass.

I really enjoyed having a mower ride within 15 feet of me while I was swinging & two mowers mowing the fairway in front of me while I was trying to play. And the trash they mowed over really added character to the course.

I think I’ll be golfing elsewhere next week.

Satisfied

Other than some of the senior tee boxes, The course was in excellent shape. Not many were playing so the pace was just right. There was a foursome that somehow got in front of us when we got to hole 10. They were very slow and since there were only 3 of us we skipped a hole and finished way ahead of them. They had 2 opportunities to let us play thru but, they did not offer. Still we had an excellent round of golf.

Terrible course

Bunkers had no sand. Water hazards were dried up. Tee boxes were way too dry. 36 dollars, way over priced for the poor conditions

I love playing this golf course. It is in great condition now, however the pace of play is soooo slow. It would make a huge difference if there was a starter or the people playing knew the rules of golf.

Best shape in a long time

Longview is in excellent shape, best I've seen in several years. Greens are fantastic, the young man working in the pro shop is very friendly.
