Really fun course, in great shape

Really fun course, with some interesting holes but not overly challenging. We were the only ones on the course for the front 9 just about, and back 9 pace was great. Greens were maybe a bit slow but not bad, I was certainly expecting them to be fast. Just about every course is in great condition this year, with the regular rain we've had. This one was no different. I really enjoyed this course, will be back. Only bummer is they don't have a driving range, which is pretty lame,

excellent value

Course was in awesome shape considering the hot, muggy weather recently. Greens (which are usually fast) were just medium probably because of the weather. Staff was friendly, pro shop is great.

The right rate makes it a great experience

One of my favorites in Lexington because of the condition of the course and the strategy required when you choose the right tee box to play from. Can be pricey without a deal and not worth more than $45.00 to play.

Griffen Gate golf course. Wonderful!

Best in Lexington! Course in pristine condition. Smooth fast greens, tight manicured fairways, perfect rough and excellent sand. The course has beautiful views . Lots of tees for every level of player. Challenging enough. Accurate driving is necessary on most holes. Speed of play is great and the staff is very friendly. Enjoyable day all around!!

Griffin Gate

Played with my Dad (which was his first time at the course) and we both enjoyed it. The front 9 moved much quicker than the back, as we literally had to wait on every hole to tee off, and all the grass needed cut, but the course over all was in really good shape. Greens were in great shape, tee boxes weren't beat up, and the fairways were also in good shape. I've played this course numerous times in scrambles, and this was maybe my 3rd time playing it for fun, but I enjoyed the course more yesterday than I ever have. It's way too pricey for normal play, especially on the weekends, but if u can find a Hot Deal to play there from GolfNow, it's more than worth it. We played for around $18, counting taxes. But I don't feel like it's worth over $60 on the weekends.

Great Hot Deal Course

I dont see this being a $75 course. However, anytime you can play here for less then $30 id jump all over it. Excellent course, in great shape. Greens were amazing. Tight course that winds through some neighborhoods. I loved this course, it was def well taken care of. If course conditions and smooth greens are your thing then this is your course. .
