Great course but left a little disappointed.

First off everything started great. Had a 4:45pm tee time but they let us start a little early. Having just drove from out of state to play we were ready to go. We started off directed to go to #10. I knew right when we got to the tee box and the Marshall asked where those kids went this can’t be good. He informed us they can’t tee off together because there were 5 and they’ve already been warned once today. Unfortunately this issue never got resolved and about 6 or 7 holes later they all got back together. It really slowed pace of play. Unfortunately no one from the course was there to bust these kids up and as a player it wasn’t my place. Later in the round I just decided since there was only 2 of us to skip a hole they were on and go to the next one. Unfortunately time ran out on us this round and we only got 15 holes in before being told to get the carts in. We didn’t get to finish the course and we know we could’ve if not for the blatant disregard for fellow golfers by those kids. I wish there would’ve been more enforcement from the course. Don’t feel like I got to enjoy my first trip to this course due to this. Positives were the course was laid out great and maintained well. Just disappointed I didn’t get the round I paid for.

Connemara

This course is well worth the money. It feels like a private course even though it is public. The only downside of the course is that there was no cart girl and not a lot of shade. However, the rough, fairways, bunkers and greens were all in great condition. I plan to play here more often. It’s like a little taste of Irish golf in Lexington.

TOO CROWDED

I love this course. I play it 10-15 times a summer. But idk if the course is trying to make money back from the pandemic or what, but it was SO crowded and congested. I didn’t even finish the 18 and left on hole 5 (started on back 9). Was not enjoyable may not be back this summer. Course was in great shape though!

Great value

Greens and FC airways were in great shape and restrooms were clean and had plush toilet paper. No water on the course and pro shop was closed but running from a card table in the restaurant . Shop attendant not too friendly but Mike the starter and a greens keeper were super friendly. Holes 5-7 have such great character but most other holes are a bit boring.

Nicely layout, good conditions. the only thing that I saw that was slightly negative was that the divots on the tee boxes need to be filled in other than that of course was an excellent shape.

Hilly layout with some blind tee dhots

The course was in good condition but the greens were slowed by intermittent rains. Could have used a course layout booklet. Scorecards had minimal info. Good value!
