Waited at each hole between 15 and 20 minutes to tee off. No marshalls anywhere to address slow pace of play. Course was a little rough.

I have never seen a course just let their tee boxes go to s#!t. The majority of them on the orchard side were dead grass or you were hitting off of muddy grass from overwatering. I have only encountered one other course with worse tee boxes and that course is now closed (bass lake). Greens were in good condition. Fairways were dead in spots and overwatered in others. I'm guessing money issues here.

The course is awesome as always. Some of the Tee boxes could use a little help. Fairways are in good shape, greens are good some are a little bumpy but overall in good shape. This course is now one of my favorites since I got my first EAGLE!!! 10th hole par 5, with 112yds left on my approach shot hit a soft pitching wedge left of the hole, ball bounced right trickled down hill and in. EAGLE!!!!

The course layout is good, and has the potential to be a really fantastic round of golf. The grass is in horrible shape, pitted and bare or burnt in many places. Its also muddy or marshy in many places, including on fairways. I had so many horrible lies and lies which verged on casual water. Won't play here again.

as good as the course played, my only complaint was to sand traps were packed and did not look like they had been raked in the recent past. Made playing out of traps very unpredictable and just down right unplayable. Rake the traps and you have a really good course that is very fair and will recommend it, but fix the traps.

The course gives the appearance that the maintenance staff has been depleted. Tee boxes are in poor condition. Fairways and greens are fine. There's either grass growing in the bunkers, or cascading down into the bunkers. Again, minimal maintenance. This is a nice layout and very 'friendly', difficulty wise, but it needs some attention.

The Hills course is a player friendly venue especially when you pick the right tee box to play from. On most holes the fairway is very wide. The greens roll very good and are very large so club up. Nice layout and price was right for our birthdays.

We enjoyed playing the Orchard Course at Lincoln Hills. The course seemed longer than it really was, but most likely because we hadn't played it before. Course was in good condition, and had enough challenges to keep our attention.

Sorry to report won't be playing at Lincoln Hills GC again. Second time here in 6 months, first time the Hills course, play was so slow we were only able to complete 16 holes by dark. This time 5 1/2 hrs.. Very unfortunate because both courses are very nice, and in good condition. No marshals on the course, and in speaking to one of the representatives, not much concern for the pace of play. Too many good courses in this area to put up with this .

The Orchard side is very forgiving for errant drivers like me. It has wide fairways and it fairly long when you play from the yellows or blues. We find this course to be well layed out and the greens are in superb condition. I would highly recommend this course to those who are long off the tee.
