Greens fairways hard as a cart path!!

First I have played and been a huge fan of lighthouse for years. We come up from Sun City Georgetown at least once or twice a month,it salways in great shape. We played Tuesday 11/23.
The greens are always pretty quick( we love that) but that day they were rock hard,couldn’t t hold a high flop shot, normal pitches rolled off the greens, putting was ridiculous. We all had 4-6 3 putts. We are all 9 handicappers. Same with the fairways,rock hard. The traps most had hard packed and little sand. On the back we set a rule,”free drop from traps”
Half way thru the back we almost left, just unreal.
Now again let me say, I have always in the past been a great fan of lighthouse. This was just not a good experience at all and all of us commented we d not be back for a long time. We ve played several courses in the area,they are not having these issues. Real disappointment.

Second time around this course, really didn't remember much since its been about 6 years since I played there. Course layout is good, not real tricky except for a couple of blind tee shots, other than those the course is right in front of you. Conditions good, fairways tight, not my favorite, greens fast and smooth, didn't hit a bunker shot but playing partners commented about the thin lies. Solid course, we drove 1.5 hours to play and was glad we did.

Tee boxes are hard as rocks. Need water on them to soften and grow grass. Also most tee boxes have crown on them - need to be flattened out. Fairways are cut to short. No grass because of mowers. Stop cutting to short. When hitting your ball the club head bounces.

Please read

FInally, they’ve stopped mowing the fairways so close. Today the ball actually sat up on grass. Before in hot weather the ball sat down on hard pan and the club face bounced off the ground and in wet weather the club face dug in and the ball contact was poor. The course was enjoyable today. Make this course feel like a resort course with your mowing.

Great staff, excellent condition

The staff is always great and you can't find a course that's in any better condition. I will always have great memories of Lighthouse. I've been flirting with shooting my age for three years now. I finally did it today. The condition Lighthouse is in made it possible!

The course was in great shape, especially for August in Texas. Greens were rolling about 13 and fairways were in great shape. very fun and somewhat challenging course layout.

Much improved!

I played this course 2 years ago for the first time. I liked the layout, but the course conditions were less than ideal.
I played it again today (Aug. 6, 2021) and was very impressed with the conditions of the course.
The fairways were a consistent height and while the rough wasn't very deep, it was deep enough to make you have to focus on your shots if you had to play from out of it.
The greens really got my attention. They were a good speed and very true. If you get your putt online with the right speed, you'll make a ton of putts.
I will definitely make the hour drive out to Kingsland to play this course again.
I'd like to see the driving range improved and some more sand in the bunkers, but those are my only real complaints.
To the course superintendent, nice work!
