Great Shape

The course was well taken care of and for $40 it competes with some of nicer courses around. Will definitely come back to play again.

Good course

Good course. New owner seems to be picking it up A LOT. It is much nicer than just last summer and can totally tell a difference. One of my favorite spots in Lexington

Beautiful drive to get there - beautiful drives on the course

Being a flatlander from Kansas, my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our round today. The drive past the horse farms to get to the course through the rolling hills whetted our appetite for what to expect once on the course. We loved it. Beautiful surroundings, well-kept homes throughout the routing of the course, uneven lies on the hilly terrain with numerous elevation changes...all in all, I had a blast. There were a few fairways needing some grass but the vast majority of the fairways allowed us to play 'it as it lies'. The greens were all smooth, putted true, and a good pace. Had an ultra-slow twosome waived the groups they were holding us up to pass, the pace of play would have received a 5* rating in that category. We'll be back on our next visit to the area!

Nice couse

Course is very nice. Definitely a shorter course even with the back tees.

Getting better

The course is under new ownership and new management and has improved pretty significantly versus previous seasons. It’s still a fairly short course with a few oddities (no bunkers, tee boxes that are actually back to back with one another, etc), but it’s a fun place to play and provides a good challenge with lots of elevation changes and some tricky water hazard and tree locations.

Getting Better

We play here quite frequently and the new ownership and management have made some definite improvements to the grounds around the clubhouse giving it a classier look. However, the restaurant and bar are temporarily closed - no mixed drinks or sandwiches, other than hot dogs. The pro shop still sells drinks and snacks.

Some fairways are receiving some much needed sodding but the rest of the course is in great shape with some of the best greens in the area. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the cart paths. While they've filled in a few holes with a concrete mixture over the winter there's still a long way to go to get all of them into passable shape.

The new management has also lowered the rates to attract more daytime business so give it a try some afternoon. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Over priced course

I’ve play this course for years and it was always packed with customers and it progressed through the years so I thought and I played it this year for the first time and on a beautiful day it wasn’t even packed. It used to cost around 25 to 30 for the weekend witch for the course was a good price. It now cost 49.00 for play and the tees are still in bad shape and fairways still horrible. Because they installed a bar they increased the price. I will not return to this course because it’s overpriced and in horrible condition. I would rather play other expensive courses because I know their fairways and tees would be in great condition for the price they are charging

Deceivingly difficult

Not terribly long, but alot of elevation changes. Difficult at times to tell where to hit drives, blind tee shots while playing alone made it harder. Greens in great shape, fairways not so much. Would like to play it again now that I've seen it and have a better idea of how to make it work.

Needs alot of work and unorganized.

Got to the course at 3:42 on Sunday and checked in we were failed to be informed that a junior golf tournament was going on till we got to the 3rd hole tee box and here come 10 golf carts passing us by with parents , kids and spectators. We were then told to leave that hole go to 10 and play the back 9 which was packed with everyone trying to play back to back to each other. Didn't help they had a 16 year working the front desk that didn't seem to know what was going on and course marshall that said he didn't even work there. Long story short we paid for 18 played the back 9 and a couple on the front that we could play. Course was a muddy mess and in bad shape. I won't be back save your $30.

Total Package

I knew the course would be beautiful just from the scenic drive past all the horse farms, it was a very pretty ride in. The clubhouse/gift shop/restaurant is in a repurposed barn and it looks amazing in there. Everyone was very friendly, there was a good selection at their Bar and Grille. I was impressed at their alcohol selection, and at the fact that they had draft beers at all. We had a great lunch while we waited for our tee time. Checking in was painless, which was a concern of mine being the first time I've ever used a Golf Now purchased pass. One of the real kickers for me was we bought a 6 pack there, got to choose the 6 beers in the pack, they put it in a cooler with ice for us that fit perfectly in a compartment on the golf cart, and sent us on our way with extra fries and chips. We really felt like all the stops were pulled out for us, and the kicker for me is that it was even cheaper than any of the local courses around me.

Then on the course itself, I'm not sure if we got lucky playing on a weekday afternoon or if it's normally not too busy, but we didn't see a soul the entire time, except for a groundskeeper. Not one group before us or after us. It was sublime, being able to play without pressure and feel like we had the course to ourselves. Some of the holes were challenging but didn't feel impossible. I don't love how close to a main road a couple holes are, but you just have to really think about where you're placing your ball. All in all, fantastic experience and I will be back as soon as possible.

Need some investment

The owners need to invest in the course
I enjoy the layout but the course needs some upgrades
The fairways need some attention there just isn’t enough grass
To many weeds and all kinds of different grass growing on this course
The cart paths our pretty rough. Some place just potholes

The good is the greens were in very good shape
It was a pretty day and I was playing golf with a great friend

Just wish this course was better Very close to my home and I would join as a member but I can see me enjoying playing this course day after day

Try to play it a few times a year
Overall now as good as last year sorry to say

Nice value south of Lexington

Was in town for a guys weekend and we booked via Golfnow. The price for 18 and a cart was fantastic. Course was not crowded despite being a Sunday afternoon. No active ranger presence so pace of play was a minor issue. Course is in slight disrepair with some overgrowth, decrepid signage etc. Feels like a place that was definitely nicer 10 years ago. Back 9 has a more challenging layout. Don't believe the scorecard for distance as several of the tee boxes have clearly moved. I hit into the group ahead of us while I was laying up because the card was off by roughly 100 yards. All in all, I'd play again because of the value, but the course is very average. Oh if you hate sand, this is your place, there isn't a single bunker on the entire course.
