Course Reviews

Tight fairways, small domed greens. Not a bad course just not as good a value as other municipal courses in area. Worth playing if you have played others.

The course looks great for those of us who casually play. Sometimes the fairways are nice and sometimes they are not. Its usually hit and miss depending on the weather and what not. Can't see the green on majority of the holes, but the layout is nice.

least favorite lexington course. The fairways are bumpy and the rough eats balls. I have lost balls after watching them through the air and landing 15 feet off of the fairway. There are a couple of really strange and exciting holes, which make the course worth playing.

Good municipal course. Very hilly and tough to play for the first time because lots of blind shots. Overall a good value especially for walkers who can walk a short course for around 15-18 dollars. Good greens, slow play, and somewhat tight but im sure i will return for the value.

If it weren't for the fact that Tates Creek was a 1/4 mile from my house I wouldn't play this course. The layout is horrible and for the same price you can play much nicer courses in the area. Theres no point in making a tee time on a summer weekend because they just pack everybody in.

Course is very open and was very busy when I played it. It's a okay course, not great but okay.

awsome course.. and if you dont mind can play this course for 14 bucks..well worth it..for the money and the walk this is the best course ive played
