Yes! 2023! Incredible!

Probably the greens need work as you seem to have played 7 years in the future and the grass is still trying to catch up. What are the new drivers like in 2023?

The Course was wonderful but the 4 sum guys ahead of us played like beginner's. They kicked the ball like soccer with clubs. The Legend course is not easy, over 7 thousand yards long. They might don't know regular play time.

Now listen - I have played my fair share of slow golf courses. This, however, was about the pace of a tortoise...that had its legs removed. 3 hours to play the front nine is NOT ACCEPTABLE. Was very disappointed after hearing good things about the course. Will not be returning.

This course has some holes that I don't care for, 2,6, and 16 but other than that it's quite good. It's very tough, and was in nice condition. They have changed the 9's around which makes good sense. The hole that used to be #1 was to difficult for a starting hole and made for slow play right off the start. Over the years as the trees have matured the course has gotten much tighter. They need to cut some trees down and cut others back in order for the course much more playable.

Teed off at 9:36 Sat am - Incredibly slow - Took 1 hour to play 3 holes. Called Proshop for refund as its no fun playing a 6 hour round. Staff was excellent in providing us with a rain check and we quit and went in for a pint.

Changing the front and back nines does not make sense - yes the 1st hole is now easier than the 10th but the 2nd and 3rd are tough holes and really slow things down. The 10th is a tough starting hole but the 11th, 12th etc are pretty easy and I've never had issues at Lionhead with extreme slowness until now. Please consider switching it back. Also, it would help if signs were on the tees that told what yardages were to hazards ie include distance to creek hazard on 2 and 3 tee blocks. Could also use marshalls on 2 and 3 to get things moving. Great course just needs to be sped up.

I booked legends and found out at the course the greens were just aerated 2 days before so we switched to the Masters course but paid for the Legends course. We should have been notified before hand of that and been offered some type of reimbursement

Greens at Lionhead Legends were in the worst shape I have seen them since the course opened for play. Had been punched a month ago and many still not well recovered. Slow and patchy in many spots. I know it's fall but many bunkers full of leaves. Just not up to the usual Lionhead standard.

The weather was great.

For the most part the course is in good shape except for the bunkering, which from storms over the past months have little or no sand in them, with landscape cloth and roots visible on some

They need to renew the sand, remove the big stones and maintain the course

Other than this, the rest is OK

The legends at Lionhead is a very challenging course. If forces you to double think your shot and club selection. Remember to bring extra golf balls as this is not a forgiving course.

I would definitely play it again

A top notch public course that is always a pleasure to play. One small complaint is that we did not see the beverage cart for the entire back 9. Being that it was over 30 degrees celsius, we suffered as a result. This should not happen on a course of this level.

First impression......starter was rude. Would not let us take the golf cart to the driving range. Held us up for no good reason.....just not friendly at all. Golf course charges for range balls....at this price point you should not be charged for golf balls. Golf course does not take cash....just a strange rule that again is not customer friendly (why would you limit how you get paid). Some holes had aerated greens........this should have been communicated before we teed off. Bottom line the policies and attitudes at this place do not make you feel like they care about the customer or the customer experience. Maybe this comes from management......I won't be back. If I am going to spend my hard earned money to golf I want the place to at least act like they care that I have chosen their course.
