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 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.

Play somewhere else

Pace of play was terribly slow. Got to the turn and apparently the start let a group that had a rain check start before us making for a 3.5 hour 9 holes. Starter was also not a very nice human. Save your money and go play somewhere else.

Course is flat and great for the average golfer

Last year course was in Great shape and this year the greens need some attention due to heat conditions. Still a good value.

Not well-maintained

This review is based only on the first six holes as we were rained out.

I’ve never seen so much clover on a golf course. One should not be obligated to play a colored ball simply because the rough is virtually all white. Numerous dead trees and downed branches (not recent). Multiple sand traps without a rake. Holes hadn’t been moved in days and replaced holes were dead and obvious on the greens. Rarely does one see three holes (one current and two previous readily visible within a 5 foot radius. There just isn’t much love put into this course. On a Sunday afternoon there was one staff member in the clubhouse to handle all food, drink, and check-in.

The course was in good shape, we booked a tee time around 3pm. It was busy like most courses during the weekend. The pace was slow took about 3 hours for the front 9 but the pace picked up in the back! Next time I book I’ll book earlier, the bugs started getting irritating around 7pm

Better Management Needed

The course had always been a favorite of mine until recently. After a couple of times of booking a tee time through GolfNow, just to arrive to the course and learn about a tournament that’s going on, and that my tee time might be delayed, will upset any avid golfer. Not only were we rushed to hit the course when we did get an opening, but pace of play so extremely slow (5.5 hour round) and they allowed a bunch of kids to drive carts around and they continuously drove while trying to tee off, at times slamming on the brakes to cause a screeching noise. It was unprofessional and definitely not worth returning. I used to defend the course after fellow golf buddies spoke ill of Fox Run, until I finally got to see what all the fuss was about. If you’re just out to hang out and have a beer or two with friends, go for it. If you’re serious about your game, don’t.
