Great conditions, spectacular Mountain View

To anyone who has not given this course a great rating, please stay home in the future. OK, Lambert Acres is not Augusta National, but then who is! This is a great local track that is in excellent condition for July in East Tennessee. The green are a bit slow but in perfect condition and the fairways are really good. Yes, the “locals” frequent the course, and that’s a good thing. Go on out, maybe some afternoon, enjoy a nice round at a very reasonable cost and maybe learn a thing or two from the Southern hospitality. I wouldn’t change a thing about LA, except maybe I should play more often.

Excellent setting in the foothills of the mountains. With (3) 9 Hole Courses, very easy to spread folks.out.

Friendly layout for very average golfers. Good value for the price.

I don’t know how this course has a 4 Star review rating.

Simply terrible management. They offer Tee times on Golf Now but also let a group of 8 people walk up to the club house and go out anytime of day without a tee time. Pace of play is abysmal and there’s no shortage of absolute hack first time players in groups of 5,6, (I’ve even seen 10 people in group on one hole) that will hold up play for the entire course without any repercussions from the “management” which is normally either a 70 year old man that doesn’t move his hind end from the bench out front of the club house or a couple of high school kids that couldn’t make a group of adults do anything they didn’t want to do anyway. The place serves one purpose...If you’re a hack that doesn’t ever really play golf and you just want to go lose golf balls and shoot 125 during a 6 hour round of golf. THIS IS YOUR SPOT.

Bombers Paradise. Great greens.

Great course to play with wide open fairways and not too many tree hazards...If you spray one a little bit, you won't have any problems advancing next shot. Tee boxes in good shape, but were starting to bake and dry up from heat. Fairways in excellent shape. Greens were perfect. They are fairly large and were soft and receptive to shots. Medium speed and were rolling pure.
Pace of play was slow, but we played on a Holiday. Will definitely come back and play during the week.

Pitiful management

We had an 8:32 tee time. When we arrived we noticed a large amount of people at the course. We made our way through the line and when we finally made it to the front to pay we’ were told that it didn’t matter that we had a tee time and we just needed to get in line. There were no less than 15 groups ahead of us. Needless to say we left and went to another course that was much more accommodating. This course is poorly managed. If you aren’t going to honor tee times why offer them online? I used to enjoy playing here years ago but unfortunately this is my last time attempting to play here.

I’ve played here hundreds of times over the years and it continues to get worse and worse.

This place is an absolute joke. Most of the time the only people in the club house and “Rangers” are kids....16 years old or so. They let people come out and play 8-10 golfers deep and don’t even attempt the split them up. The pace of play is just ridiculous. The worst part is that they don’t care about any of this. Since they’ve put out the other two golf courses that were in competition with them, they do not care about anything but your money. Don’t book a tee time and waste your money or your sanity. If you want to play a six hour round of golf with random people driving their carts down your fairway blaring rap music while you’re trying to tee off then just show up and give them your $28 and go out there with the other twelve groups teeing off from the same tee box because some decrepit old man with no knowledge of how to operate a golf course told your to.

Great for all players

I've played this course four times. Being a 18 handicap player i like the wide fairways and lack of water hazards. If you like well maintained greens then Lambert Acres is the ciurse for you.

Slow and Wet

Due to several courses having closed around here Lambert has an over flow crowd that on this day was poorly managed If you book a tee time you expect to get out close to the time you book. You also expect to have somewhere to turn to Told to start on the Orange After waiting to tee ranger said go back to the White. After waiting every shot to hit on the first nine We were turned to the Orange where they were starting groups and Turing here from the White and Red. What a grind of close to 6 Hours. I have played here hundreds of times and really like the people here but will be hard pressed to return unless someone takes charge. Can’t have several people saying different things
