Lost Marsh Golf Course - Par-3 Course
|Red (W)||27||1169 yards|
Excellent, very friendly staff. Challenging but fai r course.
Only knock is Mother Nature and the crazy wind gusts today.
Felt like playing in the British Open!!!!
wish the course was flipped so the water holes were on the back nine...
Fairways were wet so drives would plug....
Very windy day made some holes long...
Pin placements on many holes were on slopes or mounds...
Prior knowledge of where you should land your shots is very helpful.
Lost Ball not Lost Marsh
Course was wet, very windy.....tough conditions....
Great Course, Horrible Pace
2nd time playing this course in the last month. First time out we got caught up in slow play on the back 9 and ended up leaving.
Hoping it was just a coincidence, we decided to give it another shot. We started with no groups in front of us for 2 holes and no group teeing off behind for another time slot. We caught up to the group in front and waited 10 minutes on every single shot for the rest of the round. There were 6 groups on top of each other for the entire back 9. We only saw the ranger once the entire day who didn’t seem to do anything to speed up the slow groups in front, only said “Saturday’s and Sunday’s are busy”
It was not nearly busy enough for the pace to be as poorly as it was. It’s a terrific course with a fun, challenging layout but the pace is unbearable. Unfortunately won’t be back
Great layout good condition
Great combination of long and short holes offering challenging shots
Great layout and pretty good conditions. The struggle was pace, we were a 2some in-between 4,3 and behind them was a 2some. Their new gps system said 35 MINUTES BEHIND PACE!!!! Rarley saw a player assistant try and move people.
Challenging course with poorly maintained greens
Lost Marsh starts with 6 difficult holes requiring very accurate shot making over water and marsh hazards. The remaining 12 holes are a bit easier, but many require drives or second shots over hazards. The fairways are in very good shape, but the greens are covered with ball marks and other imperfections that change the roll of good putts. Pace of play was fine at 4-1/4 hours. The GPS systems on the carts are very nice.
Challenging course that is fun to play
The first 5 holes at Lost Marsh require accurate shots. Unless you are a really big hitter you’ll have to play target golf with layups to each section of the course between hazards. The water plays a dominant role in your strategy in playing these holes. The rest of the course has fewer water hazards, but there are many carries required over marshland grasses. The fairways are in good shape, but the greens have many ball marks and rough spots.In some cases the ball marks affect playability. We enjoyed seeing three deer grazing on the course.
wet/wild - great course
We played lost marsh on a golf trip in mid July - it was 65deg, pouring rain and 25MPH winds for the first 10-12 holes. I would recommend this course for anyone playing - the weather made the signature first 4-5 holes, extremely challenging and would kill to play them again in perfect weather but that doesn't take away from the course itself. The course was in perfect shape given the circumstances. Front desk staff wasn't too helpful in any details about our round but the 2-3 rangers we ran into during the round made the staff elite - great guys! Wish I could return to this golf when it's 80 and sunny and not lose 4 balls on first 5 holes - but I still think any level golfer in the area needs to give it a try!
HORRIBLE PACE ON WEEKEND MORNING
Lost Marsh is in nice shape and well maintained. Driving Range, locker room showers and restaurant on the 2nd floor of the clubhouse. Proper nurse service and water jugs on course. Greens had good speed were holding but had to repair a lot of ball marks. Traps surprisingly were maintained to some decency.
Paying top dollar to tee off at 9am on Sunday morning you'd anticipate to complete your round in well under 5 hours. Wasn't the case. Waited on virtually every tee and every shot. A completely unacceptable 5 plus hour round. Downgrading by 1 1/2 stars....pace of play has always been an issue every time I've played here and regardless of when I've played it. I've experienced afternoon rounds here just short of SIX HOURS. Lots of water and trouble everywhere on the 1st 5 holes if you're not a decent player. I really like and enjoy the design of this track but I'm sick and tired of not being able to just play the course - easy to lose interest standing around watching others spray balls into the water/woods and marshes. Reluctantly recommend.....try playing early on a weekday or not at all. Cost also can be an issue. $40 value at most...3.5 stars all due to pace of play.
Greens need work
I play here at least 8-10 rounds a year and the greens are starting to look bad here. Too many golfers playing here are not being mindful of fixing their own ball marks or any at all. As a rule of thumb, I am always mindful and fix any ball marks within a 5ft radius of where my mark is. I wish more golfers at Lost Marsh would practice this. Course is very challenging nonetheless and in overall pretty good shape. Was disappointed to pay $63 given the green conditions.
