Fox Run

Making the tee time with the Golfnow app was pretty easy. We showed up, checked in, and were on our way. It took less than 90 seconds for check in. The course was in decent shape. There were a couple holes that had been damaged by flooding, but overall course was in good shape. Not my first time playing here and will play here again.

Some of the worst kept holes in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. Greens were slow, but playable. The fairways were so poorly kept that in many places there were no grass at all, just dirt. I don’t think I’d go back there if they offered me a free round of golf.

Starting year off right

Fox Run is off to a great start this season. Third round this year, and each time there has been obvious course improvements. Hole 6 is the only cart path only hole, and the water has finally start to recede.

By summer the course will be in tip top shape!

Course was full, but the play was good, 3.5 hours for 18 holes

The course was good for early spring. The course was full, but the play moved right along.The greens were very fast. The hole placements were challenging. I will play it again

Crowded

The course was beautiful and well maintained for the most part (greens were pretty rough). The only problem was it was completely over crowded!! A foursome had the same t time as myself and a fellow mate. We had to wait on a cart. The first 3 holes took 1-1/2 hours to play do to overcrowding. I would love to play the course again but most likely won’t travel from Lincoln to just sit and wait

Great value, fun course

I’ve just begun getting back into golf, and this is the fourth course in the area that I’ve tried. Best value by far. Good mix of challenging and not as challenging holes. What I liked most was how remote this course felt. It was a 15 minute drive from Omaha but at times it felt like we were in the middle of the woods. Only downside on the day I played was that there had been a lot of rain, which kept them from being able to mow some of the fairways. Not really their fault, but would also be nice if they didn’t charge full price on a day when some of the holes are in bad shape. Still, at the value, I’m really just nitpicking. I’ll definitely be back!

Good layout, good conditions, be in the fairway!

I like the design here, mix of lefts, rights, and straight holes. The turtle back greens are small, so bring a sharp short game or scramble all day. The rough was thick in early May, so straight is a premium off the tee.
Nice practice green, and range is available.

Great day for golf

The couse was in great shape a lot of leaves but this time of year you expect that the weather was great so everyone was out playing so the pace of play was slow but again you expect that on the weekends that the weather is so comfortable

Some greens were in pretty bad condition. Some fairways had been recently aerated and interfered with balls - no warning as is usual at most courses when you schedule play. But it is a beautiful course and a lot of fun to play!

Prepare for a long day

Course was 30 minutes behind scheduled time and they didn’t mention an outing would be teeing off in front of us. Glad I booked ten days in advance to get put behind a scramble. Tons of crabgrass on greens so could t get a true rolling putt all day.
