Good course

Nice early round, played quickly.

Some areas had tall grass, but mowers were working. Tee boxes occasionally had to high of grass which should have been a priority.
Other than that good course
I’ll be back!

Consistently on par

Connemara consistently provides one of the greatest values in the Lexington area. The course is always in great shape, the staff is always friendly and attentive, and the prices are always fair. Today, made the turn in great time as usual and hit up the food service. I typically just get a couple of drinks and I’m on my way. However, today I wanted a sandwich and I ordered the chicken salad. The guy working was alone and goes in the back and after a few minutes, he comes out with this sandwich that looked like it could be served at some upscale country club. It was very well priced and the sandwich was ridiculously delicious. I must say I leave Connemara more impressed each time I visit. Well done y’all

Very nice course

I really enjoyed playing this course. The conditions were very good, the only thing lacking was the tee boxes. There were a few that were full of weeds. Other than that, the greens and fairways are in excellent shape. The rough made it difficult to find many balls that should have been easy to locate. There are many unique holes with nice scenery and backdrops. The pro shop was very nice and the staff very friendly. After my round though I stopped back in to the pro shop and I could not find anyone. I had to hunt an employee down, which should not happen. However, the experience overall was great. It’s a fun course to play and I would definitely recommend it.

Solid

Solid course for the money. Course is in good shape, rough is a little thick and finding balls just off the fairway became an issue. Overall a good course in good shape for a fair price.

Hidden Gem

This was our first time playing and we could not be happier to find this course. With the exception of a few of the tee boxes, the course was in phenomonal shape. Hilly and well landscaped, it was a challenging day for two Florida golfers. We will definitely be back

Great day for golf!

Weather was fantastic which always means a great day for golf. The course was in good shape with the exception of the tee boxes. Just needed a good trimming. The greens had been aerated recently but have come back in very nicely. The greens rolled really true. I consider this course somewhat of a hidden gem in the Lexington area.

Great course for seniors

The course is in excellent shape and there are several tees to make it easy for seniors based on your skill level. Easy course to get on in the afternoon. Most seniors play in the morning.

Course in nice shape; open and playable

Great course for a bachelor party with a wide range of golf skills. Course was in very nice shape despite some rain in the area in recent days. Greens rolled nice. The course is pretty open and very playable. It’s not terribly difficult tee to green but the greens have some slope making for some tough pin options. A few blind tee shots, especially on the front 9 but nothing surprising that you’re hitting into. Enjoyed the course and worth the cost!

Great day for Golf

Course never lets me down. Pretty simple layout but elevated greens on half the holes have you searching for the right club. Greens are in great shape with average speeds but consistent.
