My wife and I travel in our motorhome and play golf as much as we can in different states and cities. We were camping in Lexington and the weather was perfect the day we played golf at LinRick Golf Course. The course was in excellent condition. The green were very fast and you needed to keep the ball under the hole, traps were in great shape and easy to get out of. The staff was very helpful. I would highly recommend playing LinRick Golf Course if you are in the Lexington area, great course and a great Hot Deal value.

Course is back in pretty good shape. With the valleys and what not water and thunderstorms can make it a swamp at times. the traps on 1 etc had no sand and were mud puddles, but others not so much. They where like cartpath hard, and should have been marked as ground under repair. They do as good as you can do, with a course designed like this, with a limited budget. It will always be worth the money, albeit I wish they knew golf so they would give you relief and what not from silly situations.

My group enjoyed our round at LinRick. Greens are back in shape. This is a reliable course for the price. Well maintained despite being a County Course. Gives a variety of holes. In some places off the fairway conditions can be rough. I have played there regularly and enjoy it.

The greens are green and have a solid fill in. They are a tad slow but run true. Only a few small problem areas on three but werent in play. With so many clubs having lost thier greens this was a welcomed sight.

The greens are starting to improve from about three weeks ago. The pace of play was bad the guys in front of us was holding us up they were just standing around talking instead of playing and they didn’t care at all. They need a ranger at all times

LinRick has some green issues at present. It is generally better but weather conditions earlier in the year had affected the greens at most courses. It is a county course and better than most government run courses . Fairways are coming in. Limited food available but prices on snacks are the lowest anywhere. My group plays there weekly. It will improve when the greens come back.

Overall I really enjoyed my round at Linrick! The layout was interesting but fair, with 16, 17 and 18 the most memorable. It really helped to play with some regulars, Ken, Bill and Danny really made it enjoyable. They steered me around the course and couldn't have been better hosts. I was happy that none of them brought out their midseason games and I felt like I belonged. The greens were not at peak season form but they were consistent. I realize my review was tempered by the fact that I'm from Bflo., NY and our courses are just a few starting to open. I was enjoying the 82 degree day the course provided.

I've always liked the course. But now I have a memory I'll always cherish there picking up an ace on hole number 2 par 3. Other than that, the course is in great shape, greens are slick, fairways and 2nd cut are in decent shape, I still hate that crazy par five with that steep hill for a second shot. But great course and wonderful memory.

Having just come from Florida the elevation changes on this course were a real treat. Many of the greens are elevated - 15 & 17 especially. The greens and fairways are still winter conditions but quite playable. There are a number of blind tee shots where we lost sight of the group ahead- periscopes would have helped.

Greens are tricky to putt. Due to cold weather, the course hasn’t “popped” yet. Really tight lies everywhere, especially in fairways. Overall, I enjoy getting out to Linrick. It’s all about the golf there, which is a throwback. Nothing fancy, just a good place to work on your game.

LinRick is operated by the Richland County Rec Commission. The course as to fairways and greens is in very good condition. Has a good variety of holes with some tight and some wide fairways. Off the fairway can be a little rough so hit it straight. I have played this course weekly for years and it’s always in admirable condition for a public course. A great value if you use Golf Now Hit Deals. Senior rate is $22 without a deal. Tee times suggested but I have walked on many times without a tee time.

I always enjoy playing this course. This course in is very condition, fairways and greens are in great condition! I especially enjoy the challenge of the back 9, in particular 14-17. In my opinion they are very tough and you feel accomplished if you can par or bogey your way through them!
