"Not recommended for woman golfers who don't like sharing carts"

Most of the time I play by myself, and I hope this course can be nicer to women who play by themselves... I don't mind being paired with other golfers, but sharing a cart with someone I don't know is uncomfortable... but I'm also not surprised that they always want you to share a cart.

For all woman golfers, if you don't like to share a cart with someone, don't book this course.

Lake Arlington is a fun course to play. Not that many trouble spots on the course, so you can shoot a good score if you hit it fairly straight. Fairways were dry and hard in places, and they had just arrieated the greens, so there was a lot of sand on them. Had a good time and will play it again.

Course and staff were great but when I arrived and asked for the 15% that was promised on Military Tee Times, I was told that was between me and Military Tee Times which didn't make sense to me. I chose not to be a jerk and demand it so I never got my 15% off- please work that out with your courses so it doesn't happen to others in the future.

Played LAGC in what is considered late spring...all the flowers and trees in bloom. Grass has been green and out of dormancy since late February EXCEPT at LAGC. The fairways were brown. Barely a blade of green grass on them. Looks like they havent been watered in a month. The rough is green and really considered pastureland instead of grass. The first cut around the greens were almost as short as the green itself..but actually was an 1/8" longer than fairway grass...not exactly plush. But the rough along the fairways could definitely be considered hard pan. This course is in terrible condition and i would barely pay $10 to play it. I have played it at least 20 times and it has never been as this bad as far as i can remember. The one good thing about the course as of right now is the greens. They are in fairly good shape and roll pretty smooth and true. Dont waste your money or time. For the price there are better options.

The course was in great shape. Challenging but not overly difficult. Rare to find a course without a bunker these days! The people were friendly and respectful when I checked in. Felt like I was still at home.

Lake Arlington is a classic old course which requires you to hit fades and draws off the tee. Most of the fairways are narrow, lined with trees on both sides and favor a high ball hitter. The greens are in excellent shape and they roll very true. The greens are the best in Arlington.

Course is pretty wide open. Greens are in great shape for early spring. Fairways are still a little hard but overall a good day of golf.

Didn't realize I'd played before until I arrived at course. Better than average overall with some great holes and exceptional greens. I'd play again since easy to score well if you manage a few very challenging holes...

I enjoy playing Lake Arlington. I would consider this to be my home course because I live close by. This course makes me think about every shot and I use every club in my bag. The greens were challenging to read and made me think.
