Nice Course, but

My only negative to this course and it’s sister course Chester is they don’t move the cups enough resulting in cups that are trashed. Some of the cups are not even round anymore??? Fact, when you play a course with edges of the cups damaged like that it will normally cost you a few strokes a round. I’ve seen this on many course with championship Bermuda greens. I’ve also seen they have new leader on all 4 of there courses and hopefully he will resolve this issue.

Great day

First time playing this course and loved the course. The staff were friendly. The course was in great shape. The greens we're tricky but rolled true and we're quick. I was a single but was paired with a threesome who were a delight to play with. Overall, a great day on the golf course.

Straight forward course with three personalities

I have played Lancaster several times over the last few years. It provides a more economical choice for the area compared to other public/Semi-private courses wanting $70+ on a Saturday morning.

For late August, the course has not burned out. The greens were in good shape and rolled true. As is the case in high heat, coupled with recent rains, the greens were a little longer and subsequently slower than for my taste.

The course is divided into three distinct sections each requiring a different thought process off the tea. Overall the course favors left to right ball flights for a right handed golfer. Only 2 holes go the other way with only 1 having a penalty for going right. (#17) Even from the tips, the course is not long, just over 6500 yards, and plays better from the back.

With regards to the three sections, holes 1-5 are wide open and one would have difficulty to find trouble off the tee. Other than #10, holes 6-13 all put a premium on accuracy more so than length and none require a driver. (my 3 wood is usually around 230 yards) The last 5 holes require thought and the ability to move the ball. 14 and 16 are the two par 5's both require a fade. Do not hit driver on 16 if you cannot fade the ball as it will go through the fairway. Likewise for 17 except with a draw.

If you are looking for an enjoyable, less expensive place to play on the weekend, Lancaster is worth your time.

Great golf course with a wonderful staff. I love the layout of the course from the very manicured fairways to the nice greens which was a little speedy but playable. My foursome already asking to let’s go back soon.

Good

On hot days and humid days you should have a cart that goes around with refreshments and food being that there is no water on the course. One free bottle of free water does not cut it.
