Great course in good shape. Interesting history: it was the site of a Champions tour event from 1983-89. Greens are really smooth and fast. Good deals online, so good value during the weekdays.

I Played this course after playing the challlenge of manele in Lanai. So probably the only reason i rated anything below 5 ....

The Griffin Gate course is one of the "nicest" in Lexington, in reference to the scenery and nature of the holes as far as difficulty and difference between each one. However, the service is horrible. In the pro shop, the woman who took our tee time was very rude. Before we played we stood at the indoor bar trying to get food for 10 minutes and finally left. And yes, they saw us standing there. On this huge course, we did not see one beverage cart the whole time in 5 hours. The only water cooler was at the beginning and middle (same cooler). When we were done with hole 9 we tried once more to get a snack, but they had already closed at 6:00 on a Saturday! The golf carts were nice, with coolers on board and stocked with towels and tees, but one of the two we had started to die around the 2nd hole and would barely go. We traded it in after hole 9, and they cart boy was very nice b/c he helped us switch our bags over to the new cart. All in all, it's a nice course, but don't count on the amenities or the service. For the price, it should be much better.

EXTREMELY well maintained, with a staff that goes out of its way to make you feel welcome. However, the front and back nines are noticeably different from each other. The front is a fine layout, with no blind shots, and requiring a nice variety of accurate shots. The back nine has several blind shots to deal with, and the houses frequently come into play, causing less accurate golfers MUCH consternation!
