Great course

Course was in great shape and the greens were sneaky quick. Easy to run it by 3 feet. It's Nov so I didn't expect the course to be in that good of shape. Pleasantly surprised.

Nicely manicured course

A very beautiful course, greens and fairways were mowed and spacious. The tee boxes had been aerated , but were playable. The layout was nice, winding through neighborhoods, but yet very long driving in between holes. Staff was friendly, mowers were courteous. Will definitely play here again.

Great day on the greens

Course was in fantastic conditions. True greens, challenging pin placements and a rare day in NE when the wind was relatively calm.

Disarray

Had 3rd tee time of day, by number 15 there were 8 groups ahead of us, and this was already 4 and a half hours in to the round. They should just keep it a private course because they allow the members to run around wherever and for close to 80 dollars each, very disappointing experience.

Wilderness Ridge - Great Course, steal with Hot Deal!

Had a very enjoyable time at Wilderness Ridge after scoring a great price with GolfNow on their Hot Deals. Always worth playing a couple times a season. Course is in good shape for early in the season. Rough's will eat you up, not that long, but really grabs your club. You're rewarded staying in the fairways! Will be back again!

Unorganized

There was no starter and no announcement. We were supposed to play with a twosome but they didn't get to t-box before time to tee off. Then they added a member to our group. Completely unorganized and seemed very loose for a Country Club, We stopped by clubhouse and service was extremely poor as it has been most every time we have been here. Sadly it's a beautiful place but poorly run.

Very slow pace of play

This up to today is one of my favorite courses in this area. We usually will make a trip a couple times a year from Omaha to golf at Wilderness Ridge. Course was in excellent shape. Fairways were well maintained and the greens were consistent and rolled true. The pace of play today will be the main reason I will probably not make the trip back to Wilderness Ridge. Any 5+ hour of round of golf on a weekday morning will definitely scare me away! Weather was perfect, course was great but it is hard to enjoy a round watching the three groups ahead of us average over 15 strokes per person to finish a hole especially when ready golf is not followed.

PATHETIC : Play anywhere else

Absolutely terrible condition. By far the most over-rated course I've ever played. The greens were littered with pitch marks and full divots, the tees were essentially one giant divot, and the fairways had more trash than the side of an interstate. I could see the potential beauty in the course if it had been well maintained, but it's worth maybe half the rate they charge. I would not recommend to anyone. Pathetic staff experience as well.

Fun Course

This was a good course for the money. Staff was nice. Nobody was rushing us , of course that may be due to the extremely hot temperature.

A nice place to play golf.

The weather was really hot, but it was still a great day to play golf. There was a lot of long second shots and I'm not used to that at other courses I play but still enjoyed my day. The fairways were easy to hit off the tees, so really enjoyed that. Will probably go back on a cooler day.

Course was in excellent condition. Has some very nice aesthetic features. Greens were firm and smooth. It's a shame that too many golfers don't repair ball marks.

Great course, slow play

Overall the course was in great shape. Fairways were in good condition and the greens were fast and challenging. The thick rough made it very hard to find your ball if you happened to slice/hook your drive. Excellent water features, and toughly placed bunkers. The pace of play was very slow. My group was a three-some and somehow a 5-some was playing ahead of us. I don't believe a 5-some should ever be allowed to play together, let alone on a championship course. Not once did they offer to let us play through. This was the worst complaint about the course. If you can catch a hot deal - well worth the money. However, I don't think I would pay their regular rate of $70+.

Great Course!

Wilderness Ridge is very nice and everyone should go and play this course. the course the day i played, was good shape and no one hardly was there! never waited on any hole. the greens weren't mowed because of the chance of rain, it was a good fun course. lots of bunkers in the fairways, deep too.

Why haven't I been playing here more often?

By far my favorite course in Lincoln. Challenging, but not a killer for mid handicappers. Beautiful scenery and the staff is amazing.
