Course was a lot of fun. Had a group of 12, but followed an extremely slow group of 4. Long day in damp misty conditions. Tricky greens and pin placement today. Overall nice day.
Love LVGC !
Terrific course. Well kept...great value, nice people in the shop. Will be back!
I was particularly impressed with the conditions considering the weather recently. Rough was down without a buildup of clippings. Kudos to the crew!!!
Except for the sudden thunder shower , that held up play for about 30 minutes, this course is very playable for all levels of golfers. The score card illustrated each hole design very well as my wife and i were first time golfers here. Would like to return in the future when the conditions are a little dryer.
This is one of my favorite courses. A real shame it is closing. Hope the housing development going in its place serves the community as well as this golf course has served the community and South Eastern PA.
I would consider this course a hidden gem. Course layout was very nice, fairways and greens were well taken care of.
Well trapped greens
The course is in great shape. The greens roll very well. both sides of almost every green are trapped. One of my favorite courses anywhere.
Nice place to play
I really liked the course. We were pretty packed on both sides. May have been because it was Fathers Day and all of the fathers were on the course. We still enjoyed our day on the lynx. The staff and the players were nice and welcoming. A really nice place to play if your up for the challenge.
Everything except the sand traps was in great shape. The pace of play was fantastic and the pro shop man was courteous.
The course was in good shape and greens were excellent.
Terrific Old Style Golf Course
This is a real Gem. A once private CC, now Public, with all the charm of a Country Club in a Public Course. The REAL Sin is .....it's CLOSING !! Yep ....for real this Time. Insiders tell me September is when it closes ...to become Houses !!! The new Management Group who "saved" this Course from it's last closing, have done wonderful things in helping Locust Valley recover it's fabulous, challenging Country Club style. By now, it's in amazing shape and if you haven't played it yet, you're missing out !! HURRY !!! There's only a few months left !!
Best public course in the valley
Excellent condition lots of sand in the traps a must play course if you never played it or haven’t played it in a while Well maintained
Closing?? Or not closing??
The public can’t be sure if this is the last year for Locust or not, but like when the Stones announce the final tour, we want to play the course one final time!
I ‘d say skip the urge and play somewhere else. Locust has certainly seen better days. They are obviously not putting any more $$ into the course. The bunkers were never great there, but now they are just dirt. Snack shack is never open and the pro shop is empty.
Good course for mid handicaps
I have always enjoyed playing here, the greens and fairways are usually in good shape. The tee boxes are fair and the bunkers could use more sand but that doesn't knock their score down much, its an enjoyable round most of the time. My lone complaint is to invest in marshalls, on more than one occasion we have played 5 hour + rounds due to slow play and in some cases excessive alcohol consumption on the course (only adding to the slow play).
This is a course for all types of players. Challenging and fair, the course is in very good shape and even though the weather was overcast and misty, the greens were fast. Excellent price through GolfNow mskes it even better!
