South Suburban gem

Today's round was hampered by rain after 9 holes, but was given a rain check for a later date. Course was in good shape considering all the rain recently.

Held up to rains well

Only one hole was cart path only, others 90 degrees, greens in excellent shape for early season, rough was a little high but that was due to the recent rains

Wet put playable

After some heavy rains the past few days, the course recovered well. The fairways were in good condition, along with the greens. The rough was a bit too long because of the wet conditions. Still, a good round of golf.

Needs work

Over all, the course was in decent shape. Greens were a little patchy in spots. Some fairways were in need of work. Still a good course for the money .

Great course, bad conditions

First off, I play this course 4 to 6 times a year, usually May or after. It is always in great shape, I just made a tee time after 2 days of on and off rain, so it made this course spongy. Greens are in great condition despite aforementioned rain.

Driving Range Bandit

It was a perfect day on the course, even with the Fall leaves and the days humidity. The coursehas a driving range that comes into play on thee holes.
the course always allowed a free drop, the day it seem there was a range ball bandit picking up the white balls before the yellow range ball. Other than that it was a beautiful day.

The course conditions were a ittle beaten up.

The course seemed like it had taken a little beating from the recent rains and heat that we have gotten.
It should improve.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
I’ll go back.

Great Day on the course

Had not played Lincoln Oak for a Little while,
this time everything seem to fall in place perfectly.
The overcast was enough to keep the hot sun
from being an issue. The course was in a close to
perfect condition and the price was unbeatable.
Some improvement were made where rain water
used to be an issue.
It was a Great Day on the course!

Great course for the money

Smooth greens on the slow side. Great layout, plenty of birdie opportunities. Always a good price. Only down side is the bunkers. Low on sand and high on clay.
