Great day at Livingston CC

First time at Livingston CC this year and it was a enjoyable day. Fairways were cut just right and the rough was thick enough to make it a challenge. Greens in great shape. Layout is great with quite a bit of variety - plus some elevation changes. Some holes are open but others were tight. Overall a great course.

Course was a little wet after quite a few days of rain

Enjoyed Livingston as always. The only problem was course was still wet after a week of rain so rough was extremely long. This was due to mother nature and not the course itself. Look forward to playing again when things dry out .

Hello Bob,

Thank you again for leaving us a candid, honest review, we appreciate the feedback and strive to learn how to make the golfing experience better and better each and every time golfers visit us.

We lucked out at the very beginning of the season with some dry, warm weather, and thankfully we are in the midst of another spell currently. Playing conditions are terrific and with summer weather around the corner, the remainder of the 2021 season looks very promising!

We look forward to seeing you again greenside, thank you for the feedback and 4 star review of Livingston Country Club!

Hidden Gem

I don’t typically play this far South. However, was itching for a new experience.

I and a friend booked a hot deal through the GolfNow app.

Very presently surprised how scenic this course was. Very well maintained. Also, it was a little trickier than we originally thought it would be.

Every hole has rolling hills, so you’re hitting on a slope, more often than not.

Only thing I can’t talk about is the food or the course club house, as we did not go inside.

Though, although a little on the small size. The pro shop is nice.

Only negative is the tee box layout. Very odd and confusing for a first time player.

Def will go making the drive and going back!!

Hello u1070435,

Thank you so much for the 5 star review of Livingston Country Club! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us such a kind review and terrific insight. The quickness of the greens, the overall slope of the course, and some truly wonderful views of the Genesee Valley all combine to offer a challenging, yet rewarding round of golf, and exemplify the Livingston Experience we pride ourselves on here at LCC.

You'll be happy to know that one of our long-term projects revolves around creating a simplified cart experience, including the addition of additional cart paths with more signage.

Thank you again for leaving such a fantastic review of LCC, we look forward to seeing you again greenside very soon!

Wet weather

For early April in upstate New York the course was in great shape. A few wet spots in places that caused balls to plug but those were few and far between.

I played on a Monday and paid only $25. The price on the weekend is about double that but it is still a good value.

Not an overly difficult course but it does have its challenges. It sit on top of a hill so there are a lot of elevation changes that could make walking difficult at times.

Its not a flashy course with many memorable holes but the price and conditioning definitely make it a course worth playing in the Rochester area.

Great way to end season. Played livingston Sat and Sun.
Excellent conditions/fall golf. Only issue, and in jest, leaves were blown off the fairway and I tend to play left/right of the fairway. May I suggest setting up the 16th hole for us duffers that slice/hook our grip/rip and keep the rough clear of the leaves. Otherwise thanks for a wonderful season, see you in the spring!! Cary.

always enjoy Livingston

The course was in great shape for November , the only problem was the leaves on a few holes on the backside slowed play down. This is more a result of the fact they have some fairly tree lined holes on the back on 12-14. The course was trying to keep ahead of the leaves as we saw people on working on the leaves but they were coming down more often than they could keep up. Certainly not the courses fault , something you have to expect at this time of year.

This is a rather tough course with lots of hills an trees. Too many leaves and I lost 8 balls some that were hit in the middle of the fairway. Will not go back.

Hello Ross,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review here at Livingston Country Club.

We genuinely believe that the course offers an above average experience, and it is unfortunate to hear that your experience was not that.

Fall golf offers unique challenges for golf course operators with the falling of the leaves combined with prepping the course for the looming winter months. Our tremendous grounds crew are diligently managing the falling leaves, but alas, it is inevitable that the occasional golf ball will be lost amongst the fallen foliage.

We hope that you will change your mind and give us another chance during the prime golfing months next summer. We are sure that your experience will be vastly improved.

Hello u00000770447,

Thank you very much for your 4 star review of Livingston Country Club.

We are very sorry and disappointed to see that you mentioned "Friendliness" was "Poor". That is genuinely unfortunate and unacceptable by our strict standards here at LCC. We pride ourselves on our customer service and apologize if you received sub-par service.

I believe though that this lapse on our part was an anomaly and we truly hope that you give us another chance to improve your perception and experience.

Please let us know how we can improve, your feedback is invaluable. We hope to see you again very soon!

Hello Joe,

Our deepest thanks for taking the time to leave us such a kind 5 star review! Aerating the course is one of those necessary evils in producing a top quality golf course, so we genuinely appreciate your understanding as you played your round!

Considering you are a Geneseo native, have you contemplated joining our "family" at Livingston? We are currently running a Fall Special where you get the rest of 2020 as well as all of 2021 for one low single season rate. For more information, please see our Membership's page here: https://www.livingstoncc.com/memberships/

Regardless, thank you again for leaving such a kind review, and we hope to see you again very soon!

Livingston is always a challenge

Course was in great condition for as dry as it has been. Pace of play was great. Greens are always fast and some of the pin placements were extremely tough. Staff is always friendly and it is well worth the 40 minute drive.
