I love Lulu great course, very tough. We tees off at 8:10 and a 4some went off before us. It was just me and a friend. The group in front, in which I’m not the best golfer in the world, was hitting the ball 125 yds in front of them off the box and would not let us play through. Like I said I love Lulu but I believe they were members and they treat members like gold over there, public not so much. Easily, the least enjoyable round of golf I’ve had in some time. Don’t know if I’d be back!

This Donald Ross gem will only improve as the new clubhouse facilities finish completion (spring 2019?). Yes, there is an awkward course layout having to begin at 11 and end at 10. Yes, you need to be on site at least one hour before tee time if you want to hit the range (it’s completely across the property). Yes, there are limited resources available for food, beverage, and pro shop merchandise.

But for $60 (cart included), you get a course that is only improving as the weather warms up. The greens were aerated recently and need to grow in, but they will run quickly in another week. Play it now before it once again becomes a private club soon enough. The staff is friendly, and the course design will challenge all skill levels (no need to bring driver out on many of the holes - hint - hint).

The course itself plays very nicely. The design is great from a golfing standpoint.

Due to the club-house fire a few years ago, groups start on the 11th tee. I love to walk, but I would not walk this course again. 15/18 holes are uphill. No two holes feel the same and you get some unique types of holes, both expected and unexpected.

The Amenities are awful. No water on the course. Absolutely no where to go to the bathroom either. I don't mind watering a tree if there is a secluded spot, but there aren't any of those.

The worst part is that for about 85-90% of the round, you feel like you're playing golf on a highway. The new clubhouse is at the top of a hill in the middle of the course, and all the holes are along roads.

I will try this course again when the trees are fuller and the clubhouse is done.

Disclosure: LuLu's clubhouse was destroyed in a fire last year so the club built a temporary clubouse/restaurant/bar with some trailers. They were dealt a tough hand but they're managing well. The routing of the course was also affected (play starts on #11).

LuLu lives up to the profile of a Donald Ross course: Thick rough, very fast greens. Word of advice: play below the hole as much as possible. Pretty vanilla layout with a few unique holes that make the course interesting. Public play here is limited, but you can usually get on later in the afternoon for under $50. There are tons of people joining as members so I wouldn't be surprised if they start to limit public play some. It's not as nice as its neighboring country clubs (Manufacturers', North Hills, Cricket Club) but it's a solid course. The range is on the other side of the property so arrive early if you want to practice.

Staff was very rude. Apparently they were doing us a favor by letting us play there. If you go there ...dont bring your own water bottles or snacks. They made us put them back in our cars.<br/> There are many other courses that are just as nice... without the attitude.

Good place to play for the history of the design if nothing else. Small greens and some blind shots with bunkers in play. Played with a member who knew the course, but recommend driving up on some holes to see the layout first.

Course was in good shape altho some of the tee boxes needed a bit of work. Greens were challenging. Well worth a play.

I enjoyed this course very much. Classic "Old Style".<br/> Tees near greens, so it is very walkable. Beautiful Donald Ross greens, which were very quick. A private course that allows some public play. Take advantage if you can.

I had driven by this course for many years but never played. Finally did today. Course had yardage signs, was fairly open fairways so you could see the trouble in front of you, with some blind shots too. Was good to play for once for sure.

Overall nothing fancy as you can tell the course has been around for many years but was glad I played it.

I was excited to play a Donald Ross design, which are generally full of challenge, bunkers and blind shots...nice if there is a course map. This course had nothing...no course map on the scorecards, no yardage book available, no hole layouts at the tee boxes. Additionally, not one hole had yardage markers...not even on the sprinkler heads. NOTHING. And since most holes were either doglegs, blind tee shots (or both), the best you could do was hit and hope. All the flags were red, so you did not know pin placement (or thought they were all forward). Made for a frustrating day. The most horrid locker room I have ever seen at a private club (rusted, steel H.S. lockers). No attendant, so I have to change in the parking lot. A member hit a drive at my girlfriend as she stood 200 yards down the fairway over her own shot. He never even acknowledged it as we let them play through. No ladies locker room, so she had to change in the men's bathroom while I stood guard. After the round, the cart attendant didn't clean our clubs because he "did not recognize us as members." I'll never play Lu Lu again and will warn all my golf buddies about it. It's ashamed because the course is wonderful. Donald Ross would be disappointed.
