Didn't see an "Orchard"

My first time playing this course. (Orchard) I enjoyed it mostly due to the price I got: early morning $34. The course covers a wide expanse. There were several challenging holes with some forced carries to deal with. Going based on pictures it is not as rural as one would imagine, so that was a bit of a let down for me. The course winds thru an old retirement community and is mostly surrounded by houses. I'm guessing there used to be an orchard here and they put houses and a golf course over it because it's not here now. The greens were in fair shape but could stand to be rolled. As mentioned in other reviews, the bunkers need maintenance both in terms of sand (some are hardpanned with weeds) and need raking. Things looked a little rough for the most part but hey, it's August in the Central Valley and it's been 100+ with plenty of smoke in the air from wildfires. Under those circumstances and what I paid it was a fine course. Just don't expect what you see in pictures but that holds true for a lot of courses. This was supposedly the better of the 2 Lincoln Hill courses. I don't think I would return to play it again but am glad I gave it a try. Take all of this with a grain of salt. I once expressed dissatisfaction on a golf course on a beautiful southern California day because the champagne I received from the beverage cart was "a little flat". Then, it dawned on me, I was complaining about champagne while out on the golf course. Yes. I have really "big" problems in my life. Rolls eyes. Take home message: It's worth a try if you don't pay a lot and don't have grand expectations.

Green and bunker Condition

The greens needed some work and were reasonable slow. The course in general looks great but not for the price. The bunkers were in very poor condition as if they consciously are letting them go to weeds and not rake them.

Plenty of Challenges

Your tee box changes will allow for change in slope rating. Played on a hotter day , accounting for slower greens. Course layout pleasing to the eye. The practice area was well maintained and very convenient to the 1st tees of both courses on property. Plenty of water was available along the course route and the course was well marked. The day was extremely warm but golf was pleasant.

Great course

The course and layout are friendly to the average player. Greens are challenging. People at the course were a bit off. I’ve never been here before so I wasn’t sure were to get range balls. Asked a fellow golfer they were a bit crusty with their answer. Great place to golf though

Lincoln Hills

Played the Orchard course. It is in good shape. Last played it 4 months ago. Greens were in bad shape. Not any more. Glad things are back to the way they have been.

Where's the sand?

The only downsides to the whole round was the lack of sand in the bunkers and lack of GPS in the cart. The bunkers consisted of more dirt and rock than sand. I play other courses in the area and they all have some kind of GPS unit in the cart.
