I have played this course fairly regularly since moving to Lexington and keep coming back. It's a steal as far as price goes, especially if you get the twilight rate. Always in good enough shape. Some greens are on the small side. In my opinion, the course plays much easier from the whites than the blues, with the difference between the two being larger than most courses. The blues pose much harder looks due to trees, etc. All in all, I'd recommend to about anyone.
Good Muni-Style Course
Visiting in Lexington and stopped at Picadome. Had a pleasant experience on this very apparent older design course. The conditions were pretty good and course neatly laid out and cared for. Level of difficulty on this rather short track is not hard from the the forward tee box, but the blue tees add significant complexity and length to toughen up a good number of the holes. Used all but two clubs in my bag playing from the tips. Only a few real threats of losing a ball exist on this course and most danger is derived from the placement of large mature trees, a couple tight dog-legs, and generally very small greens (smallest I recall anywhere) which require a certain degree of precision with the iron play, particularly on approach shots. Great course for walkers and lovers of muni-style golf. Will return.
City Course with Country Club feel
In Lexington for a week and what a great group of city courses. This one was at the top of the list. It has an old country club design and conditioning with some great looks. We played Monday and immediately made a tee time to come back Thursday. Since we were new in town and playing for the first time , a staff member gave us a quick overview on the 1st tee. Everybody was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Played in just a little over 3 hrs both days. People who live in Lexington should be grateful to have this type of course available at city course pricing.
Good Old school course, small greens, decent layout.
One of the better public courses in Kentucky. Short but challenging from the white tees. A real challenge from the blue tees. Small greens with lots of subtle break. Some with moderate to severe break. A shot placement course. Driver not required on all holes but a well placed shot is rewarded. Easy to let a round get away from you as there is trouble looming at every hole.
This course isn't great. Not long and not in the greatest condition. This course had pipe work done last year because of drainage. Not a course I would recommend to a friend. If you are a late golfer though, you get a great deal after 6 pm.
Course is in bad shape
Picadome was recommended by the staff at our hotel, so we went. It was inexpensive ($16/person/9 holes), but we soon found out it was not worth the price.
Many of the fairways are already dead, and most of the roughs are thick with clover. We had trouble finding balls in the 2nd cut roughs; not 10 feet off the fairways. There is much repair going on as you see big stretches of fairways roped off, or sectioned off with plastic and stakes. The sand traps also lacked any kind of sand. The greens were peppered with ball marks. I could land a ball softly on the greens, and they rolled well when I did not have to go around the ball marks.
This is not a tremendously difficult course. This is probably due to the length. I played the middle tees since I haven't played in 3 months. The short length, and sort of open feeling of the course still made it pretty easy.
I'd probably try it again if the repairs are completed.
Belonged to this course many years ago. It's in much better shape, even this time of year, than it was back then. Many improvements have been made over the years. My only complaint is the bunkers. I was in them twice, but much to my surprise I got out okay. Instead of sand, they seem to be filled with dirt.
Had a challenging but enjoyable time. Small greens and narrow fairways always make for a challenge.
Greens are super fast
Course was in outstanding shape...course was heavily played but pace of play was great!
Good corse for median golfer
Course was in excellent shap for Oct greens were clear of leaves if players would fix ball markes would be the only way could have been better. Pro shop very friendly.
Great staff and course
Course is well maintained some of the best, if not the best greens in Lexington great superintendent, management and staff.
fast greenn great fairways to much clover in the rough
Watch out for all the creeks crossing and along fairways being a straight hitter is a big plus. Slope on some greens makes putting very difficult.
Great location in town
Nice course, could be a little better maintained. I believe the 8th and 10th hole green's are connected, and I've never seen that, but I could see where that would cause some problems. Other than that it is a very typical course, nothing too challenging about it.
Greens in great shape, fast and nice. Would recommend to anyone to play.
Very fun and some what tricky little course.. There are no course maps or signs on the holes so if you have never played the course it can be very tricky in what to do. I ended up hitting driver on several holes where I would have been much better off hitting say 2 iron or a hybrid. The greens right now are in great shape and fairly fast but consistent. I am looking forward to playing again but I plan on leaving the driver in the bag a little more. All par 5's are reachable from the tips.
Good course for both regualar and periodic golfer.
Good open course. Burmuda grass fairways so course brown at this time of year. I like this course. Not too hard, not too easy
