Ranger cussed me out and kicked me off the course on 18

Was playing the best round of my life and came up on 18 five minutes past the time carts were supposed to be in and cussed me and out threatened to call the cops on me despite myself and my group politely asking him to let us finish because I was about to post my best round ever. Terrible look on management and staff.

Great Course

I’ve been playing this course for 13 years and this weekend was the best it has ever looked. Fairways, bunkers, sand all looked immaculate. Pace of play was great. It was pretty busy and our group of 3 played 18 in 3.5 hours. The clubhouse/bar is awesome but i wish they’d do more to actually make you want to stick around and drink a few beers after your match. Seems like a missed opportunity.

The best value in all of golf

For $23 a person for 18 this course can’t be beat. The staff was awesome and super helpful. The course was well kept and was a joy to play. The hotdogs were awesome. Will be playing here again.

Course in great shape. Greens were good, fairways good. Busy for a Wednesday so I could see how it could get overbooked easily but for the value the course is in great shape. .

Excellent condition, greens in great shape

Overall highly recommended. Affordable, even on weekends especially for the condition of the course to be as nice as it is.
I 100% get why they only sell Lexington Brewing Company Beer because the owners of the Brewery also own the course…however; it would be nice is they could also offer the basics (bud light, Miller light, coors light etc.)
Unfortunately because the don’t sell any of those multiple golfers bring their own beer despite the legality.
Could use service, especially on busy and hot days.

Nice course Pace of Play is really bad.

Nice course but pace of play is really bad. No water on the course and long waits between swings. I’m not a complainer and like to play slow but within rhythm. Very very very slow. A lot of singles was not able to play through and very rare you see a foursome. No commercial beer just in house with only two selections. No water on the course was a big let down. It was hot and the wait was just miserable. Nice staff and course tho.

I love this course, one of my favorites around Lexington, challenging but fair, must drive the ball well and keep it in play in order to score. Superintendent has gotten this place in great shape for it to be early in the season.

Consistent quality

I have always enjoyed playing this course! Pace of play was slow, but the course upkeep definitely took care of that issue. The clubhouse was closed by 6pm on a Saturday and there wasn’t much to choose from as far as non-alcoholic drinks and food. But the golf was great!
