Lexington Golf Club
Played Lexington Golf Club for the first time yesterday. It is a great old golf club that winds its way up and down hills and valleys for the entire 18 holes. It is by no means long, playing only 6110 yards from the tips, but the layout itself keeps things interesting. There is only one par 3 and one par 5 on the first nine, and then three par 3's and tow par 5's on the back nine. Club selection is key on the first four holes, as you will use less than driver to place your tee shot. As mentioned previously, most holes play either downhill or uphill, which places a premium on approach shot distance. In general, fairways were decently wide, but there were a couple of occasions where a sprayed tee ball could find trouble. Water, in the form of a small creek comes into play only on holes 2 and 4.
As far as course conditions go, tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. I didn't hit into any bunkers, but they appeared to have plenty of soft sand in them. The greens were the standout feature for me. They rolled the truest of any greens I've played in a while. If you started a ball on your line, it was going in the hole.
The carts were electric and in great shape. The pro shop is small, but well apportioned. There is no driving range on site, but a good little practice green.
All-in-all, Lexington Golf Club is great old style golf club tucked back in a quiet area of town. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable round.
For the price this is the best course around the area. It's not very long but still provides a challenge to any skill level. The course is also very well maintained almost all public course I've played in this area have had winter kill this year, but they have kept there fairways and greens in great shape. Also the greens are always soft and in really great condition. Being such a nice course and having a great price the pace of play can be a tad slower on the weekends.
