We had a great round of golf at Lockhaven. The course was in fantastic shape for a nice fall day. The leaves were removed from all the fairways, greens and appropriate rough.

It was a great day.

This was our first time playing at Lockhaven and we were pleasantly surprised. The course was in good shape, pace of play was excellent and the staff was extremely friendly. Plus it was almost 60 degrees in late November! The only issues were the leaves and the late Autumn sun, but the course even had a person mowing the leaves on the Fairways on a Sunday to help with that issue (which is mainly out of their control). Overall a great round for the money.

I have played this course many times over the years, even when it was a private country club. The layout is excellent, although there are quite a few blind shots. Having someone along who knows the course is a big help. There was a number of swampy areas, some cordoned off. We had a specific tee time and were on time, yet a couple of young men scooted in front of us on the first tee, which made us quite unhappy. The main negative was that the greens were like concrete, and too, too fast. Impossible to putt with any accuracy!

I had played this course a few years ago, in a company golf outing. It is on par with Spencer T. Olin course. The greens were a little slow, but not bad after you adjusted. Open fairways, but there are mature trees along the edges of the fairways. The club house is a little lacking. Staff was friendly and we had no issues during our round. I hope they can keep this open and put more money into the club house. If you have never played Lockhaven, you should!

First time we played Lockhaven so it was a bit challenging. Blind shots and such. Keep in mind the course was shut down for a long time and it's getting back in shape. Could be a really nice course just needs some TLC as other reviews have mentioned. You can tell it was nice at one time and hopefully will be again.

Although it needs some tlc I am sure the staff us busted their butt to just get reopened. The greens were in good shape, the course overall just is going to take time as I'm sure it sat totally unmaintained for a significant time. Will def be back as is one of my favorite layouts around town.

Really nice layout. Needs TLC. Many tee boxes were overgrown with weeds or just bare. Rough had not been mowed recently, along with the fairwarys. Grass was kind of high. Greens were also rolling very slow.

This could be a great course but it needs some work.

Not sure what happened to this course since we played it a couple of years ago but had to review it to make sure no one makes the same mistake we did. It was overpriced, poor conditions, mis-advertised as being atop the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. Maybe if you cut down 1,000 trees you may be able to see the river. Don't waste your time, far better courses within 45 minute drive.

My Son and I, My Golf Buddy, and Several Friends have had the pleasure of being able to play this; once private golf course. To walk into the locker room at Lockhaven Golf Club was to step back in time. To have a chance to show my teenage son what it was like to walk into a country club from a time all but gone was priceless. If you were unable to play this course in the past, I would hope that something happens to breathe new life into Lockhaven. I have played over 60 golf courses and this one is easily in my top five. I would like to thank everyone that was or is associated with Lockhaven Golf Club for allowing me the opportunity to walk and play this course.

Lockhaven in the fall is a steal at any price. The beauty of the trees in autumn makes golf almost secondary. Fantastic course layout. Fantastic greens. Some of best in area. Don't miss it.

Being close to Alton this club apparently gets a lower class of knowledgable golfers. Etiquette is not on display here. As everyone of us has done before, I left a club at at a previously played hole. That of course, was my fault. I went back to where I left it and--NO CLUB! I asked the foursome behind us if they had seen it---No they said in unison which I thought was strange, but just thought it would be turned in. Here it is months later and no one turned it in. What kind of a clientele steals a club??!! Who would play an honorable game with these kinds of folks? It's a shame because it is a nice coarse even though it is showing signs of decay. The once splendid tennis courts are cracked, full of weeds and not usable. The swimming pool dressing rooms are in need of repair and better sanitation. The coarse is good to play, but there are others better with a friendlier staff and more honorable clientele.
