Course closing 11/01, Never really got to great shape
This course is the closest course to my home but I rarely played under the current ownership. They would at times get the course playable and staff was very helpful. I just always got the feeling they were temporary. I was right. This course is closing for good. Nursing School bought property 3 years ago. They put a little money in the course but I'm guessing never made a long term commitment to it. I noticed the responses to bad review here seem to be canned. One read "Hope we can meet your expectations next visit" That was dated 10 days before permanent closure and after it was announced. Why would they respond at all, has to be a bot.
Course layout was fairly good for new golfers and enough interesting holes for more advanced. Just never got it in top tier shape. RIP Woodford Lakes.
Thank you for taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are going to pass along your feedback to the staff. Thanks for visiting Woodford Lakes Golf Club!
Great Course, Terrible Pace, Poor Golf Etiquette
The golf course itself was great, greens were nice and staff was friendly. However, the pace of play was absolutely terrible. We were held back so long that We could go back and play the previous hole TWICE and still have to wait. On every hole. To the point where we just ended up leaving After 10 holes because it was so frustrating.
Hello, DJ. Thank you for reviewing the course. We would like to apologize for the delay of play during your round as this is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve by using your comments as guidance. Thank you for playing Woodford Lakes Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.
Must keep it in the fairway
The course is lined with lots of trees so you have to keep it in the fairway or you'll be pitching out sideways all day.
This course has been steady and reliable this year. My only complaint is that the greens are deteriorating quickly. Fairways and tee boxes are in great shape, some of the best in the area, but the greens are getting bald patches and getting mowed slightly unevenly, which is leading to bouncing putts and putting on dirty. Not great. Fix that and this is an amazing course. There is great value here. There are a couple of spots where I would, to make it even better, add a few fairway bunkers, but that is maybe me being a bit picky. Great local course, though.
I enjoyed the course up to the point where the fairways where getting watered and so did I. If you want to water the fairways that’s fine just don’t have players playing it. I wasn’t happy getting wet. But I will be back and hopefully they won’t be watering them when we are playing
Not a 36$ course
If you are in the Lexington area you might as well play griffin gate right down the road for that price. Overall woodford lakes is an okay course but when you pay $40 for a public course the greens shouldn’t look worse than the par 3 course Meadowbrook

Trees Lined Fairways
The fairways are nicely shaped by trees along both sides. Fairways are a little hard and greens spotty in some places. Overall fun course at a good price
Great course and great staff!
Course is in great shape and the tournament we had was great! The golf pro is super gracious and even though he lost he definitely loses with dignity! Definitely will be back!
A Great comeback Story. Must play
Woodford Lakes has been a great comeback story over the last 3 years. Once haphazardly takes care of, new management/ownership came in and completely resurrected the course into amazing shape..by far in much better shape than any other course around.
The staff is professional and friendly as well. If you’ve not played since it was the old “Cabin Brook” then you are missing out.
Awesome golf course
The course hosted my annual golf event. The course was in great condition. The staff were accommodating and bent over backwards to make sure the event was successful. Overall an excellent experience as usual at Woodford Lakes. Couldn’t recommend the course more.
Awful layout, every hole was the same and the greens were the same. Awful pace took nearly 6 hours for a twosome to play. The fairways and greens were in bad condition as well.
Hi Caleb, thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve, and we are working towards getting things up to par. Thank you for playing Woodford Lakes Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.
Completely Disagree with this review. If you couldn’t enjoy that course with that weather Saturday maybe it’s time to take up tennis.
Not sure we were playing the same course Saturday. Hands down one of the best maintained courses in the area.
