The course was in great shape.Pace of play was good for what I assumed would be long day. The only negative as strange as it may seem was putting the tee in the ground to tee off. If was very difficult to do this.

The course is a great value, nice people, green nearly perfect fairways, but the greens are getting questionable. Hope the can be saved and not turn like Springfield.

Great course! Very friendly staff and the course was in good shape. A couple of greens had some issues but the pins were placed so that the bad spots didn't factor into play. I always enjoy playing here even when I don't play well. Overall this is a great golf experience.

The course was in great shape and the fairways were the best for this time of year that I have played on.Greens rolled smooth and around a 10 and bunkers had plenty of white sand in them.The course had four long par 3's that would test the best golfer's.Tee boxes were nice and level. I will be back to play again and I came from Concord NC.

Love going down to Lancaster. Course was in transition phase but still fairways in great shape and rough was very playable. Greens were growing in but still rolled good enough. When these greens grow in they will roll fast and nothing is a straight on putt. Great layout that is easily playable from the forward tees but not the same old course as others around. Will keep coming back. Cant beat the island green either.

Fly in for The Masters and played with a friend on the way down from the airport. Found a good deal considering it was Masters week. Nice little track and staff was very friendly. Course was in good shape and helped since it was quite breezy. First time to play and we enjoyed the course and the pace of play. Would recommend it to anyone in the area.

Course was ok for the season. Want to play again when the Bermuda kicks in. The pro shop staff is friendly and accommodating. . Driving range had no grass to hit from. It was cool to play a Donald Ross design although I was not overly impressed as it was pretty boring except a couple holes
