Temp Greens are Horrible

It's not a bad course but the renovations are more of an obstacle than anything and all the greens are at best fair to awful. The pro felt it necessary to give us a lecture on khakis bc we were in blue jeans. This course was open to the public. If you could survive on memberships alone then you wouldn't have to open it to the public. Probably won't be back anytime soon.

Scenic course with lots of nature

Enjoyed the day course is scenic and lots of nature to see, but living on its memory of days long ago as they have basically lost the greens. 3 are temporary plots of sandy over seeded fairway and the remainder have limited full coverage with lots of marks and spots.
I hope they can recover them as I always enjoy a back to nature day at Limestone.. The rest of the course is in good condition.

This would have been an exceptional experience if the course had any greens. The greens were the worst I had ever tried to play.

Greens are terrible....

This course has a great layout, but the greens were in very rough shape. Looks like they had a disease or something. Rest of course is nice. I won't be back till they get the greens back

Good Deal on GolfNow

The greens could definitely use some work but we love the way the layout of the course is. They can also use some work in the fairways but this is a really nice course.

Greens were aerated. Fungus all over. Most were white.
Tee boxes were just as horrible. Worse round ever. Looks as If it not being maintained.

Limestone is letting itself go

I have played this course dozens of times and it is one of my absolute favorites in the greater Birmingham area. Unfortunately, it’s gone really down hill since the last time I played here in June. The greens looked like scorched earth. There were literally patches of green that had dried, cracked dirt. The front nine greens were abysmal. The back was better, but still not good. I really hope they return to their standards from days past.

Not the old course

Most of the greens are in bad shape. You can tell they are trying to keep them going, but it was bad today. I actually quit putting on several of them. Dead areas, not spots--areas. In the past, this course was close to RTJ, not anymore. I will, however,, play it again in the fall. The hot weather makes it hard for their greens.

Not Worth the Money at any Price

I don't know what course the other people have been playing, but this is definitely not a 4+ star course. The weeds in the fairway I can accept, but the greens are in terrible condition as are the bunkers. This course has a lot of potential, but is in need of some significant maintenance. The golf carts are top notch with built in GPS, but they don't have enough of them and are pushing people to ride two to a cart even with COVID.

The final straw was pace of play. We were stacked up with 4 groups on a par 3 by the time we got to the back nine. I thought that was bad until we got to the next Par 5 and there were 6 groups on the same hole! No Marshall whatsoever.

Greens are awful

I love the layout of Limestone Springs it is beautiful. However for some reason they cannot keep the greens in good shape. The last time I played here was about 5 yrs ago and the greens were awful, I had heard they were in better shape now. They are not! Half of the greens are mud and have small weeds growing on them. I took a customer out with us and was embarrassed, I have learned my lesson and will not return to Limestone springs - Its a shame they cannot invest to make this course a gem of Alabama.

I AM LIMESTONE SPRING GOLF CLUB PUTTING GREENS

THIS COURSE IS IN A BEAUITFUL LOCATION IN AL. LAKE SPINGS MOUNTAINS. FAIRWAYS AND CART PATHS MAKES YOU FILL CLOSE TO NATURE. THE PUTTING GREENS ON ABOUT SIX HOLE NEED RESEEDED. BARE SPOTS WEEDS CABBAGE PATCHES ON GREENS. THIS COURSE WAS DESIGNED BY THE GREAT JERRY PATE. HE WOULD BE VERY UPSET WITH THESE GEENS. I GIVE THIS COURSE SEVEN OUT OF 10.

Excellent golf experience!

Don’t miss a chance to play Limestone Springs! The staff in the Pro shop and Grill are super friendly and welcoming!
The carts are new and outstanding.
The course condition is absolutely beautiful! Tees, fairways, rough, and greens are all in great shape.
The scenic course winds through some neighborhoods but is predominantly a completely natural setting. Some of the course vistas are expansive and gorgeous !
